Earlier this week, Sega announced via the PlayStation Blog that they’ll be bringing over their Dengeki Bunko Publishing-centered crossover fighting game Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, developed by Melty Blood developer Ecole Software and French Bread, a release date has yet to be set, but is set somewhere in Summer 2015 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
