Oreimo and A Certain Magical Index represent in upcoming fighter.

Sega and Dengeki have confirmed two more characters set to appear in the upcoming fighting game Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.

From Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai comes Kirino Kousaka, and from A Certain Magical Index, Misaka Mikoto.

A group of support characters were also confirmed. There’s Wilhelmina Carmel from Shakugan no Shana, Leafa from Sword Art Online, Kamijou Touma from A Certain Magical Index, and Kuroneko from Oreimo.

The game uses an eight-directional joystick and four button input. A is your weak attack, B your middle attack, and C your strong attack. S brings out your support character. You’ll be able to move, dash, back-dash, and double jump.

Other game elements include:

  • Impact Skills: A+B, or down+A+B for a special attack.
  • Trump Card: By pressing B+C at the same time, you’ll use one Dengeki mark to send out a powerful attack.
  • Blast: By pressing A+B+C at the same time, you’ll use the Blast Icon to invoke a variety of effects.
  • Extend Action: Pull out regular attacks and certain kill skills. By holding the button, you can change your skills.
  • Potential: Specific skills each characters possess.
  • Climax Gauge: A gauge for super special moves.
  • EX Special Moves: By committing certain kill skills with the S button for a stronger move, your Climax Gauge will decrease by one.
  • Climax Arts: Consume two bars of the Climax Gauge for a super special move.
  • Reflection Guard: By pressing any button while guarding, your Climax Gauge will decrease slightly and your opponent will be forced back.
  • Quick Combination: Mash A to let out an automatic combo.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax will be playable on arcade machines at the Dengeki Bunko Fall Festival in Akihabara this Sunday, October 6. A home platform for the game, if any, has yet to be announced.

Thanks, Dengeki.

      Too bad he’s only support.

      I *REALLY* wanted to punch Kirino in her face.

        Support spam? We need an achievement for this. Fist to Face.

        We all do man, we all do. Support spam ftw!

    It really is a shame that the TouMAN is only a support character…

    I was looking so forward to destroying the illusions of the other characters with his IB. Well, at least I hope that his theme plays during special actions:

    What Kirino fighting move?

      This is just a random guess — there might be a Meruru transformation in there somewhere.

      I think most people are just going to use her as the training mode dummy.

      See Oreimo S2 last episode

    • bloodiOS

      Spewing poisonous insults ;)

    Pisses me off a bit that Touma is a support card for Mikoto, it simply adds to the fire that is Railgun pretty much overriding Index as the primary series that people give a shit about. (Note: Every single unveiled character is a tsundere.)

  • Takane Shijou

    Yeah, a bit saddened by the Touma bit. But it’s nice to see him there anyhow. Though I’m not too much in love with the idea of Kirino in the game, just kind of ‘eh’ about it really. But we’ll see how this goes in the future and such and when we can get some gameplay.

    • Budgiecat

      It is kinda annoying. Oh well at least we get to finally shut Kirino up…

  • DarthBrian

    Mai Railgun waifu and Mai Kuroneko waifu both in this?
    Best game ever. <3

    • MonoChrome

      Nothing better then when waifu come together in a game, huh? They should just call it waifu climax.. wait that sounds weird haha. I wish they would add BRS to the roster, but she’s not from the bunko stuffs. *cries*

  • KonniSekai

    K i forgot xD

    • Chaos2Frozen

      “Mikasa” is not a Dengeki Bunko character.

  • Forty

    Kuroneko and Misaka? Sweet. Now all I need to wait for is Celty.

    • Omega_Shiro

      They said something a bout DURARARA in it

  • $30632660

    Muhahaha I can finally smash Kirino’s face in with Touma! I’ll smash all those Kirino fanboys illusions!

    EDIT;DAMMIT HE’S A SUPPORT CHARACTER?!!? Fine, I’ll just let Misaka kick Kirino’s ass, if only I could have the Sisters as support characters too >:3.

  • Deusxmachina

    Add Aisaka taiga and i’m buying it day 1.

  • OverlordZetta

    I guess playable male characters are out, that’s rather disappointing. I’ll wait and see if anyone I really like gets in then.

  • MonoChrome

    I thought the game was already coming out on home consoles; guess I was mistaken. It probably will do it’s arcade run then hit the consoles; I hope.

  • fireemblembeast

    T_T home consoles….!
    I hope it’s more than just two from each series though. Also where is my misaka screenshot?!

  • Omega_Shiro

    Kuroneko as a support is cool I guess but this games has plenty of female characters I like WILL get if I can. As said before if Durarara is in there has to be celty right?

    • echokanon

      Shizuo was just confirmed just now

      • Omega_Shiro

        Just read that FUCK YEA!!!

      • Omega_Shiro

        That makes Shizou the only non female main fighter rather than support or will he support Celty.

  • echokanon

    New characters confirmed:

    Shizuo from Durarara!!
    Kuroyukihime from Accel World

    At least now it proves that it is not female only for playable characters
