Project X Zone trailer shows Namco/Sega/Capcom crossover in action

Earlier this month we saw Project X Zone revealed as Capcom, Sega, and Namco Bandai's joint foray into strategic roleplaying for the 3DS. Now the first trailer for the game's been revealed, giving potential players a better look at the star-studded title. For a title billed as a thinking player's strategize-'em-up, the game sure looks to contain a wealth of one-on-one brawling. That's okay: thinking and face-punching are a time-honored pairing.

 

There's no word on Project X Zone's European or American release, though enough of the game's characters are beloved in the West that we imagine its awkward three-parent upbringing will include English lessons at some point. In the meantime, surely this footage is fairly unambiguous in what it reveals of the game's content. Hitting people really hard in the head is something of a universal language, after all.

    So is this a turn-based game or fighting? I can't tell. Also I wish they put in a character from the original Shining Force and sonic would be cool but wouldn't fit in there at all.

    This kicks major ass, despite it being the pictures we saw in action, this game has great potential and can influence more 2D sprite games!

    what a bloody waste of potential! theyve decided to pull a namco x capcom again...

    Holy mother of crap I want this game lol So many characters that I love in it x____x Also... jiggling boobs apparently.

    Don't tell me Sega are missing the chance to put Bayonetta and Dante in the same game...
  • BladedFalcon - April 24, 2012 8:14 a.m.

    It's weird, yeah, they aren't putting any of their platinum developed characters in there for some reason.
  • shawksta - April 24, 2012 9:07 a.m.

    Hey, they put Ulala in there and shes not from an RPG so theres still hope for good ol Bayonetta, her and Dante ftw!

    Could be interesting. I have to wonder how much influence capcom will have over the game though? Seeing as the 3DS will do DLC, whats the chance we'll see half the capcom roster locked out unless you pay half the original price of the game again?

    Looks a lot like the PS2 game Namco x Capcom, which makes sense really. The only game so far that has me wanting a 3DS, now to just wait and see if it gets a EU release.

    That trailer was a whole lot of ass kicking, in more ways than one. I hope this makes it's way to the west. Surely at least one of the companies involved (probably not Namco...they're stingy with their RPGs) will have some interest in localizing it.

    Well I recognized all of the Capcom characters. And the Tekken characters too. Other than Ulala, I have no clue who any of the Sega characters are. I'm going to need more info before I make up my mind on this one.
  • mattdark - April 24, 2012 1:44 a.m.

    Yeah, Segas seem to be the hardest to place. I recognised Akira and Pai from Virtual Fighter, but the others elude me too. with Namco at least, there was only the one character I didnt recognise (The guy with the sword, top-right of the namco group)

    Just to help. The two on the bottom are from a SRPG called Sakura Wars (Mecha RPG). The two on the top left are from one of the games in a series called Shining Force. The two at the top are from Valkyria Chronicles 3. Lastly, the two on the right are from virtua fighter.

    Well, the screen-shots alone were promising enough, and the game's looking up to be even more beautiful in movement. The gameplay also seems to hint at something different. And let's be honest, Ryu, Ken, MegaMan, Zero, Dante, Jin, And Yuri Lowell in the same game? It might not make a lick of sense, but it doesn't make it any less awesome. Yeah, if this game comes here and it delivers it's potential, I might just pick a 3DS for it.
  • shawksta - April 24, 2012 9:10 a.m.

    Dude, Chris and Jill are in a strategy game, nothing makes a lick of sense, especially with Capcom and the word Crossover :P
  • BladedFalcon - April 24, 2012 9:47 a.m.

    I know it doesn't make a lick of sense, I stated that, and i stated that it doesn't matter if the gameplay's good :P Also, I still yet to see the "strategy" part of the game, since the footage right now looks more like a tag team action game than anything else XD (not that that's a bad thing mind, but it's really hard for me to peg the genre of the game just yet.)
  • shawksta - April 24, 2012 7:37 p.m.

    I know, i just liked the "Lick of sense" you said so i wanted to use it too XD Thats sadly the problem with this game and its predecessor Namco X Capcom, watching gameplay videos STILL wont basically tell you what type of game this is, but then again i can be wrong and this isnt a sequel to Namco X Capcom
  • Elard621 - April 23, 2012 7:14 p.m.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA All the 3DS haters are now crying
  • Nap1400 - April 23, 2012 6:24 p.m.

    Now we just need a Phoenix Wright and Sissel team and I'll be happy. Or possibly Jon Talbain and Felicia. ...I don't know much about Namco or Sega's part...
  • shawksta - April 24, 2012 9:15 a.m.

    OH GOD YES! Considering Capcom listened to fans and put Wright in UMVC3 its possible he'll come here, and sissle? That would make me orgasm XD
