Put your weeb hats on. It’s time for Anime. Yoooooah Anime!
Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax if you don’t know already is a fighting game based on the popular anime and manga house that brought you stuff like Sword Art Online. I mention that because it’s the only one I’ve actually watched from this game.
Now here comes the hard part, reviewing it.
As a big fighting game player, I want to just jump right into training mode and vs mode and just start learning everything that I can. Thankfully pretty much all of the motions in this game are half and quarter circles, like most Anime fighters.
I spent a good amount of the time (about 15 hours total) just playing Vs matches with my friend. It’s broken as hell and there’s shit flying all over the place. And best of all, there’s no slowdown. So you’re going to be linking combos together just fine if you ever placed Melty Blood or games like that.
To play, you just pick your character, then you get an assist character. Each has two assists both activated with the assist button or holding forward and pressing assist. There’s some pretty broken combinations in it. I’d go completely into the functions of the game. But I want to keep the article short. I’d be going on forever.
For those of you who play fighters, I used the Marvel/KOF button setup to play this. My fingers thanked me for making the switch.
I didn’t get a chance to try the online much at all, considering there was no one else actually online. But once I do, I’ll give you guys an update. But I suspect it’s actually decent knowing the engine.
The story modes are full of all kinds of fanservice that you’ll love if you’re into Anime. I really got bored with the single player stuff and really wanted to get into the fights. But I’m sure you might like it if you’re into crazy, Kingdom Hearts level writing.
There’s just one problem. We all know that an update Fighting Climax: Ignition is out in arcades in Japan and hitting the PS4 in December. I don’t know if this version will get an update. I asked Sega about it, but I haven’t heard any word back yet. But we’ll see how that goes. It would suck to be a version back.
If you’re into Anime, buy this.
If you’re into Anime Fighters, buy this. It comes with a badass soundtrack to bump loudly while driving through the hood.
Just give it a try. It’s not expensive.
You can pick it up on PS3 or Vita… if you actually own a Vita.
