At a Tokyo Game Show stage presentation today over at the Dengeki Games booth, Sega and Ascii Media Works announced Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, a 2D fighting game that features characters from numerous Dengeki Bunko light novel franchises that’s currently in the works.
Characters-wise, only two characters were announced today: Sword Art Online’s Asuna, and Shana from Shakugan no Shana.

So this is basically Aquapazza with another set of franchises?

Aquapazza was actually pretty good but it's hard to really get into all of these anime fighters like Melty Blood, Spectral vs Generation, Chaos Code etc. From a layman's perspective, they tend to blend together.

So, this is actually a SEGA x Dengeki cross over, right? Because that sure is a Valkyria Chronicles stage at the bottom-left there.

As I said in the anime thread, if this game lets me drop a Railgun into Kirino's face, than I'm all in, though I'm hoping they get at least a little more esoteric than The Usual Suspects in terms of character selection.

One of the mangas in that list is s-CRY-ed!

Kazuma & Ryuho in a fighting game? SIGN ME THE FUCK UP!

And this game would be the game that SEGA hinted at a while back I suppose.
s-CRY-ed is really more of a Sunrise thing. You probably need to be looking more at the original novels that're published by Dengeki more than the manga line-up - you're probably looking more at things like Accel World, Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere, Index/Railgun, maybe OreImo or Toradora if they want to get jokey, or Boogiepop and Baccano/Durarara if they want to get a little more esoteric.

Chaos Code is actually quite easy to get into, it has a chain combo system, and the meter works similar to KoF 2000/2002.

Don't be all "technical" with me! Let me have my fantasy until SEGA completely destroys it as they do most of the things I love.

I wonder which series will appear... Off the top of my head, Accel World, Horizon, and Index are Dengeki Bunko, I think. They're all fairly popular, and so probably likely. But I mostly think of non-combat things like Oreimo or Toradora... I dunno.
This is a very large list that consists mainly of things that I haven't read. I'm sure some of them must be suitable for a fghting game. I don't know if choosing not-popular franchises is the correct business decision, but it would be interesting. I bought Tatsunoko vs. Capcom without much knowledge of Tatsunoko outside of Gatchaman and Casshern, so who knows.

This game positively needs Dokuro-chan so that she can bash Kirito's face into Western AAA-worthy gore over and over and over and over and over again. Why not? She was already a playable character in the previous Dengeki Bunko crossover game (as did Taiga):

Any word on who the devs are yet?

The fact that it's a cross project with Sega, and the style of the game itself, makes me think it's probably French Bread or something [that would be amazing], but they should have their hands full...

I also hope it doesn't only consist of heroines - Bunko has some great male characters at their disposal too.

Dokuro-chan with her spiked bat, please!

...oh, & I guess Baccano/Durarara, Ladies Vs. Butlers, Okami-San, Oreimo, S-cry-ed, Spice & Wolf, To Aru Majutsu no Index/Kagaku no Railgun, Toradora, and Ultimate Girls, but aside from that, I'm not asking for much!

& really hope we see some Sega characters in there. Now the question is if it'll come to the US.

Sprites definitely looks like French Bread's style the most. The 2d on 3d looks pretty bad on the tank stage, but looks ok on the rest. Not having a uniform art style for all the character art kinda bugs me too but not a big deal. I just hope the roster is nothing like Cross of Venus where it's just heroines only and a ton of Kugimiya Rie characters that are all alike.
