SEGA has announced its latest 2D fighting game, Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax will release in the West on Oct. 6 on the PlayStation 3 for $39.99 and the PS Vita for $29.99. What’s more, the game will also release with a bonus edition soundtrack CD in North and South America for pre-orders and a limited number of launch copies.
Because the game will only release digitally in Europe, the soundtrack won’t be available to our friends across the pond, although, we don’t see why SEGA couldn’t include a digital version of the soundtrack with each purchase.
According to a SEGA press release, the songs on the CD are inspired by classic SEGA titles, with contributions by notable SEGA composers such as Teruhiko Nakagawa (Shinobi), Naofumi Hataya (NiGHTS into Dreams…), Kenichi Tokoi (Sonic and the Secret Rings), Jun Senoue (Sonic Adventure series, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Generations), and others.
Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is a 2D crossover fighting game featuring popular characters from Japanese novels published under the Dengeki Bunko label and will be available in retail stores and digitally on PlayStation Network. The game includes characters from numerous Dengeki Bunko works alongside several fan-favorite SEGA characters brought together in SEGA-themed environments.
The Dengeki Bunko collection boasts a vast array of beloved characters who lend themselves flawlessly to this highly balanced, easy-to-learn, high-action 2D fighting game, SEGA’s press release read. In Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax players attack, guard, and take damage in order to build their Climax Gauge, allowing them to execute moves which recreate highlight scenes from the original novels, even adding specially arranged animations for characters who do not fight in the original works.
