Japanese game mag Famitsu has outed a crossover title for the 3DS that will borrow key characters from Sega, Namco Bandai, and Capcom's roster. The title, called Project X Zone (aka Project “Cross” Zone) is billed as a strategy RPG wherein players will select a pair of fighters and put them to work in various fighting scenes.
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
Ryu & Ken - Street Fighter 0
X and Zero - Mega Man
Demitri and Dante - Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry
Chris and Jill - Resident Evil
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
Neither studio has indicated when the project will be released, or even if it will make its way outside of Japan. A trailer for Project X Zone is expected to answer some of those questions later this month.
While we wait for details, let us know what you make of Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai's group effort.
