Project X Zone revealed
Posted on April 10, 2012 by MikeV

In February, Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai had announced that they will be working on a crossover game that involved each of the publishers/developers characters. The only clue given at the time were petri dishes representing each of the companies.  In those dishes were multicolored X chromosomes.  Fans noted that these colored X’s resembled a meme on the internet that takes simple blocks of color and arranges them in a pattern that represent characters in video games and anime. As speculation on who was going to be in the game and what kind of game it was to be, a leak imaged of this week’s Famitsu revealed the game.  The game is titled Project X Zone, and will be a 3DS strategy RPG.  As for the cast the following characters were announced and from what game they were from:

Capcom

·         Ryu and Ken (Street Fighter)

·         Mega Man X and Zero (Mega Man X)

·         Demitri (Darkstalkers)

·         Dante (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 (Space Channel 5)

·          Touma (Shining Force)

Namco Bandai

·         Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars)

·         Jin Kazama and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken)

·         Kos-Mos and T-elos (Xenosaga)

·         Yuri and Estellise (Tales of Vesperia)

·         Kaito and Black Rose (.hack)

A trailer for the game is set to be released sometime this month.  

There was a similar game that was on the PS2 called Capcom X Namco, but wasn’t released here in the US due to licensing issues, since some of the characters had games/anime that were licensed and published by other companies.  Looking at this list a majority of the characters have games that are owned, published, and localized by their respective companies. If these three could work out a deal that lets them each have a cut, I could see game getting brought over here to the West.

Are you excited for The Elder Scrolls Online

Yes because I'm a big fan of The Elder Scrolls and can't wait to see the huge world of Tamriel
No because I'm a big fan of The Elder Scrolls and the idea of a MMORPG version of the game sounds horrible.
