Though this site focuses more on light novel news for English-speaking regions, a recent release in Japan should be of interest to those who enjoy import games. Dengeki Bunko, a Japanese publisher of many popular light novel franchises, has collaborated with Sega to create an arcade fighting game featuring many characters from various light novels (along with a few guest stars from Sega games). This game is titled Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, and has recently received a release for the PS Vita and Playstation 3. Both systems are region-free, so it is easy to buy this game online and play it wherever you may live.

For a full character roster, the Wikipedia article for the game has a nice chart.

First Impressions: I played the game at an arcade a couple times a while back, and felt it was rather fun. I liked to make Shizuo repeatedly throw vending machines at people, at least. :> I’m not an expert on these sorts of games though, so if you’re a 2D fighting aficionado I suggest looking for reviews online (or watch some videos).

Personally I’m a bigger fan of some of the “assist” characters than the playable ones, but the idea of a video game with the likes of Kino, Boogiepop, and Maou-sama fascinates me nonetheless. If I pick up the game I’ll be sure to write up another post for it some day.

    1. I’ve recently gotten the game for Vita, and this likely is my favorite thing to do in the game still…

      There is something satisfying about launching a crane game machine at opponents with Kirino as well though, I’ll have to admit…
