SEGA has announced that they’re bringing the anime/manga-infused fighter to the West.
Steven Akana – the Associate Marketing Manager for Sega – has just made an interesting post on the PlayStation Blog, announcing the release of license-heavy fighter Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax in the West this Summer.
Developed by Ecole and French Bread in cooperation with ASCII Media Works, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax features over sixty new vignettes to explore in its Dream Duel Mode, in addition to the original story campaign present in the Arcade Mode. It also features original cutscenes exclusive to the console versions, penned under the supervision of Dengeki Bunko’s writers to add further depth to the interactions of this “fantasy crossover”, and even stages designed after some of Sega’s most iconic series’.
Here’s some of the finer points, regarding the fighting system in the title (via PSBlog);
Fighting Climax features a fighting system that is both easily understood and complex, thus catering to veterans and newcomers alike. Using weak, medium and strong attacks, each of the playable characters have move sets that are similar in execution, yet differ in attack range, power and speed.
Assist characters each have two moves that can either help you chain your combos or add a defensive strike, giving players a large range of flexibility in custom combo creation and play style.
