This week starts with good news for Tokusatsu fans who would like to play the recently-announced Kamen Rider Climax Fighters in English.
While a western release has not been announced, Bandai Namco just revealed that the game will launch in Asia with English subtitles, for the first time in the history of the franchise.
While the voice overs will remain in Japanese (which is probably the best option anyway), those who don’t understand the original language will still be able to enjoy the game.
Kamen Rider Climax Fighters is a fighting action game in which Kamen Rider fights against Kamen Rider to decide who is the strongest of them all. The roster includes all the “Heisei Riders” (those appeared in the Heisei Era), starting from Kamen Rider Kuuga to the very latest Kamen Rider Build.
The game supports 1 vs 1 and 2 vs 2 battles in third-person point of view, fought over complex stages that include elevation differences and obstacles aplenty. It’ll even be possible to fight with up to four players online.
The Asian version of the game will launch at the same time as the Japanese one, on December 7th, 2017, much to the joy of those who are willing to import, and won’t have to wait any longer than our Japanese friends.
