Kamen Rider Climax Fighters Localization Confirmed for Asia
Bandai Namco Entertainment has today published a plentiful of new information on their upcoming new Kamen Rider game for PlayStation 4, Kamen Rider Climax Heroes, through a live stream in Japanese which is currently available as an archive. One of the interesting news revealed today is that this game will also receive localizations in the Asian region. You can read more on that below.
Kamen Rider Climax Fighters is a fighting action game that will mainly feature 4-people multiplayer of 2-on-2 versus, although it will also have 1-on-1 versus. Multiplayer can be done either online or offline; in the latter case, it will be also possible to connect four controllers on a PS4 console to have a split-screen multiplayer.
All 19 titular Heisei-era Kamen Riders to date are confirmed to be playable in Climax Fighters. As you can see from the top picture, they are Kuuga, Agito, Ryuki, Faiz, Blade, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O, Kiva, Decade, Double, OOO, Fourze, Wizard, Gaim, Drive, Ghost, Ex-Aid, and the newest Kamen Rider Build, which show has just recently started airing in Japan. Each Kamen Rider will have their own unique skills and form changes, which will be important factors in the versus battles.
Being the first Kamen Rider console game with online features, Climax Fighters will also have an online lobby where fellow Kamen Rider fans can mingle and play games with each other. Bandai Namco also took this opportunity to announce an early purchase incentive of Kamen Rider Climax Fighters‘ PS4 original theme, as well as a limited Premium Rider Sound Edition that will exclusively have 38 theme songs originally used in the featured Kamen Rider shows.
Finally, Bandai Namco has announced that Kamen Rider Climax Heroes will be also the first Kamen Rider game to get localizations in Asia, particularly in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia. The latter is especially noteworthy as Bandai Namco has been known for making localizations for Southeast Asian countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines in English. So although this game’s chances of receiving an actual Western localization still appear to be slim, at least an English version can be confirmed with this news.
A new trailer for Kamen Rider Climax Heroes has also been published, which you can watch right below. This game will be released in Japan on December 7, and the Asian releases will follow.
