Project X Zone is another cross over game but NOT made by Capcom! Yes it does include Capcom characters and Namco Characters and even Sega Characters and it isn’t a fighter either! This may be a shocker to gamers only discovering cross overs due to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe but in the past there were a few titles that had Tekken and Street Fighters meeting on the battlefield. It’s too bad that it wasn’t that great and they weren’t fighters either but instead an action/tactical RPG.
Even though it isn’t a sequel Project X Zone will include the same game play style as Namco X Capcom but it isn’t a direct sequel nor will it be on consoles. It has been announced for the 3DS. They have also announced a few characters representing each company; Capcom is bringing in the big guns with Ryu and Ken. While Namco and Sega have decided to include some characters who haven’t seen much of the spotlight nowadays including Ulala from Space Channel 5 and Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesparia. A complete list of characters that have been announced can be found below.
Cross Edge is very similar to this game and was also released state side and in Europe. Sadly it didn’t do too well in the eyes of critics or the sales so I really cannot see the release of this Project X Zone seeing a western release.
Capcom Ryu & Ken (Street Fighter), X and Zero (Mega Man X), Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry), Chris and Jill (Resident Evil)
Sega Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro (Sakura Wars), Pai and Akira (Virtua Fighter), Kurt and Riela (Valkyria Chronicles), Ulala and Touma (Space Channel 5 and Shining Force EXA)
Namco Bandai Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars), Jin and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken), Kos-Mos and T-elos (Xenosaga), Yurie and Estel (Tales of Vesperia), Kaito and Black Rose (.hack)
