Series protagonist joins previously announced Asuna and Leafa
After a wave of new characters were recently set to be announced for Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax—Sega's celebration of the light novel imprint's 20th anniversary—Dengeki Online revealed another addition. Kirito is the latest playable member of the Sword Art Online cast to join the crossover fighter's lineup.
Previously announced SAO characters include Asuna (playable) and Leafa (support). Kirito will be able to use both a single sword style—with powerful techniques like "Elucidator" and "Dark Repulser"—and use Climax Arts to dual wield.
