OMG YES! OMG Japanese video gaming DID IT AGAIN! If you go to the news section for the 27th of December at http://www.fightersgeneration.com/main.htm and the picture of the magazine at http://www.fightersgeneration.com/newspics/shonen.jpg you can see this EPIC game to come!

"Looks like it's "Shonen Magazine VS Shonen Sunday" (unconfirmed title)... The game appears to be 1 on 1 fighting game with strikers/assists. Characters confirmed so far: Negi Springfield and Asuna Kagurazaka of Negima!, Natsu Dragonil of Fairy Tail, Shinichi Mechazawa of Cromartie High School, Inu Yasha of Inu Yasha, Kenichi Shirahama of History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi, Ippo Makunouchi of Hajime no Ippo, Ikki Minami of Air Gear, Yoshimori Sumimura of Kekkaishi, Kaoru Akashi, Aoi Nogami and Shiho Sannomiya of Zettai Karen Children, and Hayate Ayasaki of Hayate the Combat Butler."

Also info at http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-03-18/shonen-magazine-shonen-sunday-mark-50th-anniversary about KONAMI being the maker of the new crossover game.

I am SO pumped since I watched Negima, Kenichi, Kekkaishi, and Hayate while I know of most of the other series. OK BRING IT! Got to find reason to get a Jap. PSP this is it! You can see Negi in action in the magazine picture in the top right hand corner.

Here is info if you need it on Shonen Sunday: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sh%C5%8Dnen_Sunday
and Shonen Magazine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weekly_Sh%C5%8Dnen_Magazine

OH MAN I hope more characters get added and it looks like a good engine so far similar to the new OTHER anime game coming out, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (you can read up on that one on the Fighter's Generation link too), I will update if more comes out like roster addtions and ratings for it.

For fun also post some series you WANT to see Negi, Asuna and others faceoff with that are already listed above OR that these mangas got under their umbrella; I already am going nuts wanting them to add cast from Giant Robo, Kamen Rider, Ranma 1/2, Yakitate Japan, Detective Conan, Dodoro, Ultraman Taro, Getter Robo, Urusei Yatsura, Mobile Police Patlobar, Spriggan, Flame of Recca, Tsubasa: Resevoir Chronicles, Love Hina [WANT MOTOKO AND SETSUNA FROM NEGIMA THEN IN THIS!], Get Backers, Rave Master, Great Teacher Onizuka, Samurai Deeper Kyo and many more!

UPDATE January 30th

Just got this again from the same site above for this awesome crossover fighting game.

More characters confirmed for this PSP cross-over fighter: Ueki (Law of Ueki), Ban (Get Backers), Noboru Takizawa (Blazing Transfer Student), Kotaru Shindou (Kotaru Makaritoru), Kyo (Samurai Deeper Kyo), and Ryo (Project ARMS).

I know Ban who is the guy with the super strength and illusionary eye from Get Backers, I can sort of make out his tag partner is Ginji the lightning god! Sweet! The others have partners too so seems like each character gets one so it's like double the roster size!

The game now is being called Shounen Magazine X Shounen Sunday Nettou! Not bad. For the new page on it, see http://www.fightersgeneration.com/games/shonen.html It's a good size cast that might grow some more!

UPDATE FEBRUARY 23rd

OK new characters added with a good sign as another Kekkaishi character (Tokine) made the game, meaning we could see multiple fighters from an anime, but could also be Yoshimori's partner. The pic (let it have time to load) is at http://www.fightersgeneration.com/newspics/shonen3.jpg

"8 new characters have joined the roster: Recca from Flame of Recca, Yaiba from Yaiba: The Legendary Samurai, Tora (with Ushio, that shirtless kid) from Tora, Cyborg 009 from Cyborg 009, Devilman from Devilman, Tokine from Kekkaishi, Tiger Mask from Tiger Mask, and Joe Yabuki from Tommorow's Joe!"

Funny note is that Tiger Mask is one, a pro wrestler whose character is also a long time anime, and two, the character of King from Tekken is based off Tiger Mask so it's techincally him in the game. Heh so now we crossed manga with pro wrestling and other fighting games!

Here is your full roster at 27 to choose from though note some will be partners for all we can tell for now:

Characters: Negi Springfield, Asuna Kagurazaka, Natsu Dragonil, Shinichi Mechazawa, Inu Yasha, Kenichi Shirahama, Ippo Makunouchi, Ikki Minami, Yoshimori Sumimura, Kaoru Akashi, Aoi Nogami, Shiho Sannomiya, Hayate Ayasaki, Ueki, Ban, Noboru Takizawa, Kotaru Shindou, Kyo, Ryo, Recca, Yaiba, Tora, Cyborg 009, Devilman, Tokine, Tiger Mask, Joe Yabuki

UPDATE FEBRUARY 27th

First off the official name for the game is now confirmed as Sunday X Magazine so I'll be going by that (simpler) name for updates. The actual FULL name of the game will be Sunday X Magazine: Shuuketsu! Choujou Daikessen!

3 new characters were also confirmed: Takamura from Hajime no Ippo, Miu from History's Strongest Disciple, and Lucy from Fairy Tail. So like before looks more and more like shows will get more than one character so I hope Negima gets a few more since it has such a large cast too! Asuna and Negi are cool but you know you want more in the fight! Of course the roster is bigger, now at 30 characters confirmed in it so far!

Finally I'll upload a new collage of pictures of the game in action so enjoy!

UPDATE MARCH 4th

Here's the Japanese Official site for Sunday X Magazine! http://www.konami.jp/sunmaga/vs/

Click on the lower left hand corner video to watch the trailer. You'll see the WHOLE playable characters roster in action, about 30 in total if the grid is correct for the SELECT CHARACTER page. ALSO like many fighting games, many MORE of the characters will be in the game in some capacity like in the story mode or background. For you Negima fans, I could see Nodoka and Konoka in their Pactio mode, Evangeline, and Chachamaru!

MARCH 26th is the date of release! Looks like it's going to be a fun game!

ENJOY! YATTA!

LOL Now you get it! I know already having Negi and Asuna in it is cool and watching them go up other animes is a plus, but am hoping for some things like long wished for Akamatsu matchups. Can say the same for things for like Rumiko mangas (Inu Yasha vs Ramna). But Asuna vs Naru, wow another fan long awaited fight! Ta!
