Dengeki Online recently ran a lengthy piece that details how Dengeki Bunko FIGHTING CLIMAX’s newest main characters will play in the upcoming crossover fighter. Tomoka Minato from Ro-Kyu-Bu! and Sword Art Online’s Kirito come from two very different source materials, and that’s reflected in the attacks they’ve been given by the game’s developers.
Many of Tomoka’s moves feature her basketball teammates, who incorporate moves like passing, dribbling, and shooting to deal damage to the opponent. A full rundown of her section in the Dengeki article can be found below, courtesy of Dustloop’s Sourenga.
Kirito, on the other hand, has a very extensive combat background, which is shown in his moveset. To remain faithful his original series, many of his attacks revolve around swordplay. Further info can be found below, again courtesy of Sourenga.
Another interesting addition made to the game has to do with the support characters. Before, each assist was limited to one attack, but now each of these fighters are capable of a second move to enhance their functionality. Sourenga’s translations on this expansion and the supporters’ new moves can be found below.
Finally, during Sega’s demonstration at Japan Amusement Expo 2014, it was revealed that Virtua Fighter’s Pai will be joining Akira as his assist character. Akira was previously revealed to be the game’s boss, but it’s still unclear whether or not he’s playable, an uncertainty that also extends to Pai.
Reports have also surfaced that Toradora’s Taiga Aisaka was announced as a playable character, though no word to confirm these rumors has been released. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Dengeki Bunko FIGHTING CLIMAX is scheduled to release in Japanese arcades this March.
