SEGA officially confirms Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax hits America and Europe on October 6th

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax Day Bonus Soundtrack
SEGA has finally confirmed that Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax will launch for Playstation 3 and PS Vita on October 6 in North America, South America and Europe. We made a post in June stating it was suppose to come out on August 25th, a date given to us by a Gamestop listing, but that date turned out to be wrong.

North and South America will have ‘special launch edition’ version of the game that will include a bonus soundtrack CD that includes tracks from SEGA composers like Teruhiko Nakagawa, Naofumi Hataya, Kenichi Tokoi, and Jun Senoue. This will only be available to pre-orders and day one copies.

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Ignition location test gameplay hits online

While we are getting closer to the American release of Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax, there is already a ‘expanded’ version of the game being tested for release in Japan. While some people are calling it a ‘sequel’, to me it seems like a update to the game, sort of how Street Fighter II was updated to Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting a year after release.

The video clip above shows off new characters Quenser Barbotage (from Heavy Object) and Emi Yusa (from The Devil is a Part-Timer). Fighting Climax Ignition is set for arcades this summer in Japan, while the first game is coming to Playstation 3 and Vita in America on August 25th.

What do you guys think of this game? Will this updated release effect your purchase in August?

Dengeki Bunko: FIGHTING CLIMAX hits North America on August 25th

We know that Dengeki Bunko: FIGHTING CLIMAX is coming to the west, we know it will be released within the year but what we didn’t know was the exact date. According to GameStop listing the game is set to release on August 25th in North America while only costing $39.99 on the Playstation 3 and $29.99 on the Playstation Vita. Even cooler is that the Vita and Playstation 3 version each have their own cover.

Dengeki Bunko: FIGHTING CLIMAX mixes popular Dengeki Bunko Magazine characters with SEGA franchises such as Virtua Fighter and puts them in an all out 2D fighting game assault. Learn more by hitting the jump and reading the product description from SEGA:

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax trailer reveals a Dreamcast console-tan

A new trailer for Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax has hit the internet, and it features a Dreamcast console-tan! What is a “console-tan”? A moe anthropomorphism of a piece of gaming hardware, in this case a Dreamcast. If you don’t know what a “moe” is, I’ll let you Google search that on your own. Given Akira and Pai from Virtua Fighter appear in the game as bosses, it is likely that the Dreamcast gal is a boss as well.

After the break, check out a full body shot of Dreamcast console-tan!
