■ Character Introductions

Kamen Rider Ryuki

Summon Dragreder and fight together! Kamen Rider Ryuki’s Skill is “Advent: Dragreder.” Dragreder charges the enemy or circles defensively around Ryuki. Coordinate with Dragreder to execute a powerful attack.

Kamen Rider Hibiki

Hit, hit, hit “Ongekiko!” Kamen Rider Hibiki’s Skill is transforming to his “Hibiki Kurenai” form. Not only does it increase attack power, some Rider Arts will change. In addition, a key characteristic of Hibiki’s Ongekiko attacks is that continuous drumming increases sound, effects and damage.

Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

Kamen Rider Den-O

Phantasmagoric combinations brought out by Imajins! Den-O’s Skill is “Denshagiri,” the Imaji’s powerful ultimate chain attack. The ultimate combination attack where Momotaros, Urataros, Kintaros, and Ryutaros take turns to attack (even canceling out other Rider Arts!) is Den-O’s unique ability.

Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

Kamen Rider W

The “Baton Touch” with your partner is the key to victory! Kamen Rider W’s Skill is “Baton Touch.” Switch between Shoutaro’s Cyclone Joker and Philip’s Fang Joker with this Skill, and recover a bit of health with each switch. Decide which form to use depending on the situation, and maximize the abilities of this 2-in-1 Rider!

Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

Kamen Rider Ghost

“Floating” like ghost, trick the enemy with agile battles! Kamen Rider Ghost’s Skill is “Mega Omega Flash.” Ghost-change into Grateful Damashii, and unleash a powerful blow. In addition, Ghost can make use of “Floating” to become invincible and maneuver in mid-air. Even when faced with 2 enemies, his ghostly actions make it hard to capture him.

Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters will launch for PlayStation 4 on December 7 in Japan, as well as in Asia with English subtitles.
