Famitsu has announced lots of new details for the upcoming 3DS crossover video game called Project X Zone. Project X Zone will include characters from Capcom, Namco, and your favorite publisher, SEGA, in a tactical RPG game. The developer for the title has been announced as non other than Monolith Software. At first you will be excited since they created the Xenosaga franchise and the new(ish) Wii RPG Xenoblade Chronicles, but they also developed Namco x Capcom on the PS2; which wasn’t that great of a game.
Hit the jump to see new gameplay details, Famtisu scans and a full list of confirmed characters!
The game will have support attacks that are special attacks that from your party members. The game will also use grid spaces to be more tactic based. Think Shining Force series. If another unit is 8 spaces from your unit you will be able to trigger a support attack. This support attack is only used once in a battle, make it count!
The other new attack they detailed is Cross Hit which is related to Support Attacks. While performing a Support Attack, if the main unit and support unit both strike the enemy you will trigger a Cross Hit. The enemy will freeze and you’ll be able to perform varies combos while their stunned. Sexy.
Critical Hits will be performed in this title by first hitting the enemy into the air, while they are in the air if you hit them again before they touch the ground you will perform a Critical Hit. Critical Hits allow you to take more damage than you normally would. Also confirmed, each character will have (up to 3) unique skills. Battles in the game have been confirmed to be fully voiced, but we don’t know if SEGA actors will return to reprise roles.
