What do the characters of Sword Art Online, Black Bullet, The Devil Is a Part-Timer!, The Irregular at Magic High School, and Valkyria Chronicles all have in common? They’re all ready to beat the living hell out of each other in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax.

Like Jump Ultimate Stars or J-Stars Victory VS, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is a mega-crossover fighting game filled with famous characters from many popular Japanese anime. However, while Jump V-Stars Victory VS technically pulls its characters from some of Japan’s most popular manga, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax gets its characters from some of Japan’s most popular light novels—as well as some of publisher Sega’s most acclaimed game series. In fact, Fighting Climax sports a total of 37 characters (14 playable, 23 assist) from across 21 different series. But what characters you may ask?
