Who is your waifu now, bitch?

Posted by Naoiko

Huh. Wonder if it'll be any good?

Posted by Morningstar

I would, but the neighbours are already looking at me funny.

Dreamcast-tan is in it too! WAI WAI WAI!

I wish she was playable.

@hurvilo: I mean, Taiga's super is kicking the shit out of the street light. So..

Also this saves me from having to import it so thanks Sega.

Jeff would hate almost all the cast, many are bad even by LN/Anime standards. I can't wait.

TAIGA!!! FUCK YEAH

Posted by SpunkyHePanda

Something about that screenshot and that name made me think of Danganronpa and now I'm sad this isn't like Danganronpa at all.

I am ashamed proud to know the name of every single character in this trailer.

Nice, first heard about this in PSO2's lobby, and since seen nearly every one of the featured animes.

Posted by LtSquigs

Played this in Japan, really enjoyed it, not because of the game (its a real simple fighter), but because I played as Shizuo. Only a bummer that no Baccano characters get in here.

Holy shit its this game! I'm totally getting this for the various waifus

Posted by SomeJerk

Bummed out there's no PS4 version really :<

@soundlug: I dunno. I think Jeff could get behind Taiga. She uses chairs, a baseball bat, and throws trashcans. All great weapons.

Sold!

Man, trailers for anime fighting games seem to hate showing the actual games.

If Tatsuya isn't god tier then this game is already dead to me.

Edited by AlKusanagi

Awesome. I was so close to importing it.

But is it going to be some bootleg version with the characters names removed or something? With the popularity of Sword Art Online, you'd think they the trailer would have at least mentioned that the characters are from known series.

First Hatsun Miku, now this, Sega is really killing it with obscure releases I would never expect to come here, and as a result have already imported

I've got a JP copy and it's not a bad game. In brief it's a fairly standard air-dasher with an assist mechanic similar to Aquapazza. Of the "anime fighters" coming out in North America this year though I highly recommend Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late which is my personal game of the year for 2014. It has fun characters and a unique mechanic with its GRD system. That one is coming out here in February.

@babychoochoo: Tatsuya is just an assist character, Miyuki is the playable character from that series and she's supposedly pretty bad.

Posted by BabyChooChoo

@pfhorlol: Based on the show, he should still be god tier. Like...as soon as you pick him, it shouldn't even load into a match. A text box should just pop up saying YOU WIN haha

In all seriousness though, that's a shame. I'll still play her when the game comes out, but I genuinely liked the show so it would've been cool if she was a better character.

@alkusanagi: So many weird inclusions. Kirino, Tiaga, the loli from that lame basketball show.

That's more of a fault of the choices made by the English PR team. The Japanese promotional videos for the game are long and shouty.

I'm particularly fond of the one narrated by Rie Kugimiya and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka:

The game has two playable characters voiced by Rie Kugimiya (Shana and Taiga), and it is amusing to see the characters meet.

Where's Chie?

Posted by dr_mantas

That's a familiar design treatment.

OH SHIT IS THAT THE GIRL FROM OREIMO AND THE BODY GUARD FROM DURARARARA!? Day one buy.

Not as fun as saying KENKA BANCHO: BADASS RUMBLE!

@dannyhibiki I hope she can jump-headbutt enemies and one-hit KO them.

Posted by BillyMaysRIP

I'm going to take so much pleasure fucking up your waifu. I'll spend hours just fucking up Kirino, over and over and over and over again. Legit tho, there are only like four characters of value in this lineup - Selvaria, Shizuo, and Taiga.

Posted by siln

Wait... shouldn't bringing something like this over be a licensing nightmare? I mean, hooray if it isn't, but wasn't that the problem with these kinds of games?

Posted by dox

This is what I would imagine if someone uttered the words 'generic anime fighting game'.

Posted by GunstarRed

@eribuster: I dunno about that. I remember looking up Japanese Xrd and Under Night Exe unbirth exe late @ colon fate; face HEART! trailers last year, and they were full of anime characters flying at the screen without much gameplay at all. It seems to be pretty common for the genre.

Posted by TobbRobb

If Shizuo isn't amazing to play then this game is dead to me ,T.T. I like more of the support cast than the actual playable characters.

Waifu Wars: The Video Game

Posted by Belegorm

It's gonna be no Melty Blood or Under Night: In-Birth, but still a pretty decent French Bread airdasher fighting game.

That was the gameplay!

Kidding aside, maybe you picked a bad time? Teaser trailers are bare bones, and those are the ones you may have come across upon. The longer, extensive promotional videos usually come out shortly before the game releases. In Dengeki Bunko's case, I recall seeing a series of character combo videos come out shortly before the game's release. Then again, it helps that I subscribed to their Youtube channel.

I really do think your issue is one of poor timing or ineffectual searching. Most, if not all, Japanese games get a 4-5 minute or more promotional video that goes over characters and systems within 1-3 months of the game coming out. Lately, there is more footage out there thanks to Youtube channels and Nico Nico streams. Sadly, it is a bit harder to find.

Sadly, no Atlus reps. You do get Valkyria Chronicles and Virtua Fighter.

All of the characters in the game are owned by the parent companies of the Dengeki Bunko publishers or Sega. Anime and light novel licenses these days are far more tidy and in favor of the originator company (no more Macross and Harmony Gold deals). It's not a big surprise that everything is legally hunky dory for this game to cross oceans!

Tell that to Super Robot Wars.

There's no way my dengeki bunko can be this cute

Posted by forteexe21

Kind of mad that i imported the game and cant understand waifus talking to each other. :(

Posted by stenchlord

I've been playing this for a few weeks now and really enjoying the combat. Basics are pretty basic but then moving into the combos can get pretty complex. I can't read Japanese but can sorta pick up on some of the vocals cause I've watched so much anime but am definitely missing a lot.

Posted by BlueWolverine

My love of Shizuo Heiwajima is offset by my hatred of sword art online. Screw this game.

Posted by ThunderSlash

French Bread made this? It's gonna be overlooked due to the UNiEL hype!

Posted by Belegorm

@thunderslash: I'm more scared of the oppposite, people buy MvC3, P4A, and this game in part for the characters, while UNIEL is a new property that didn't make it into EVO this year
