Earlier today, SEGA announced that they’re bringing the 2D anime-styled fighter, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax to the west on PS3 and PS Vita later this year!
The game features several characters across a range of Japanese novels by Dengeki Bunko, which includes Kirito from Sword Art Online, Kirino from Oreimo & Misaka from A certain Magical Index / Scientific Railgun.
Currently planned for a ‘Summer 2015’ release, Fighting Climax will be launching on the PlayStation Store for the PS3 & Vita as a digital download. It’s a shame we won’t be getting a physical release, but it’s still great to hear that we’ll be getting the game in English at all.
