Rejoice: Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax goes West


Didn't see that one coming

Well, folks. I've said it a couple times, and I'll say it again: Hell has officially frozen over, people! This time around, Sega's smacked us with an unexpected announcement, as Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax heads West for the PS3 and Vita this summer. In terms of release format, North America's getting the physical and digital treatment, with Europe having to settle with a digital option.

As for the reasoning Sega localizing the game, my guess is that it might have to do with Bandai Namco's J-Star Victory VS+ title crossing the pond. That, or Yen Press' arsenal of Dengeki Bunko light novels persuaded them to bite. If not, then Bamco's sales for Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment's Western release might've played a factor in Sega's decision.

Most importantly, it looks like Summer 2015's going to be a good season for crossover fighting games. Once I get my hands on Fighting Climax, I look forward to learning Shizuo, Mikoto, and Shana. I guess I might try to master Kirito and/or Asuna as well, since it'll give me the opportunity to mess with a few people.

Anyway, are you all excited for Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax's Western release?
