Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax, released on PS3 and PSV, is a classic 2D fighting game. The production was created to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Dengeki Bunko. The novels published under this banner by the Japanese company ASCII Media Works are extremely popular in their homeland and over the years have seen numerous animated adaptations, which are also known and liked in the West. The game was developed by French Bread - a studio specialized in fighting games, and the developer of Melty Blood series available for PC, consoles and arcades.
Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax uses the crossover formula. In the game, we will find nearly 40 heroes from many of the flagship Dengeki Bunko series, such as Sword Art Online, Durarara! Shakugan no Shana, Toradora!, Toaru Majutsu no Index, Accel World, Spice & Wolf, Ro-Kyu-Bu! and so on. Guest appearances also include heroines from Valkyria Chronicles and Virtua Fighter games. The presented plot is only a pretext for fights between characters. We get to know the story thanks to short scenes made in the visual novel convention, which are displayed in the campaign between battles. Also, in Dream Duel mode, players can select one of the heroes and their opponent and watch short scenes depicting interactions between characters.
Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is a standard 2D fighting game. Unlike many other representatives of the genre, players simultaneously control a second character in the arena, which supports their main warrior and is summoned when a special gauge is filled. Before the fight, we choose a supporting character from more than twenty available heroes. We have three attacks - weak, medium and strong. The fourth button is responsible for controlling the assist. Players have a wide range of combo and special moves at their disposal.
Fans of online fights won't be disappointed by the fact that the title offers modes in which we gain experience points and further ranks by climbing up on the online scoreboards.
The cartoon graphics of Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax try to remain true to the style known from the original book illustrations. The characters are voiced by actors known from anime adaptations of individual series.
The production allows you to exchange saved game states between PlayStation 3 and PS Vita versions.
