Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is a solid yet very simple 2D fighting game. This game is similar to that of J-Stars in the sense that they use characters from alternate forms of media. Where J-Stars uses characters from their Weekly Shounen JUMP franchises (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, etc); Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax uses characters from Dengeki Bunko‘s popular light novel. Seeing characters like Shizou from Durarara!! and Kirino Kousaka from My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute fight each other seems funny and a little jarring, but seeing characters like Kuroyukihime from Accel World and Kirito from Sword Art Online feels like eye-candy considering they’re from the same author.
