The game is a huge collaboration between developers Monolith Soft and Banpresto, featuring both beloved and obscure characters from well-known Capcom, SEGA and Namco series.
Here’s a little more information:
Project X Zone features over 50 playable characters from 29 historic game franchises by three of Japan’s most respected game companies. In Project X Zone players will use a team of two characters known as a Pair Unit to explore the world within the game. An additional character known as a Solo Unit can be combined with the Pair Unit to assist in battles with Solo Attacks as well as augment the attacks available for players to execute. Throughout the game, epic battles are waiting to erupt at a moment’s notice. Players will have to master an array of screen-busting moves including Solo Attacks, Support Attacks, Cross Hits, and Finishing Moves in order to defeat a multitude of foes.
Project X Zone takes place in a world surrounded by a hidden chaos with shadows and evil lurking beneath the peaceful cover of everyday life. When a rift in time and space suddenly appears, a doorway to various universes is opened allowing both heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths. Players will be able to take control of a huge selection of paired heroes including favourites such as Jin and Xiaoyu (Tekken), Toma and Cyrille (Shining Force EXA), to X and Zero (Mega Man X) and discover the cause of the rift and stop evil from coming through and spreading into their world.
With just a vague Summer 2013 release date for now, Project X Zone is undoubtedly yet another fantastic 3DS game for us Europeans to look forward to later this year. How excited are you?
