Are you excited for the upcoming Project X Zone cross-over game featuring some pretty neat SEGA characters and cameos? Well even though the Japanese port of the title isn’t breaking front pages on websites right now, they still released a new English trailer and batch of screenshots.
So, are you going to get this on your 3DS when it comes out June 25th (US) and July 5th (EU)?
The wait is over!….Kinda. While you may not be able to get your hands on the full game yet, the Project X Zone demo is finally in the North American 3DS E-Shop. I gotta say, playing the demo makes me want to play the full version even more! It’s fun to see the Sega, Capcom and Bandai characters interacting. Even Opa-Opa and Space Harrier make a cameo! As far as Sega franchises represented in the demo go, you’ll see characters from Sakura Wars, Valkyria Chronicles 3 and Space Channel 5. The game itself is a grid based turn style RPG with cool, interactive attacks including Marvel vs. Capcom-like 3rd character support. While the game is translated into English text, the voices are purely Japanese. But heck, a lot of folks like it that way.
Note this is demo A. Which means, like Europe, a second demo should be coming soon.
Project X Zone will be available in American stores on June 25th.
Capcom-Unity in collabration with Namco Bandai Games and SEGA West are hosting a fan art contest for Project X Zone, which is set be released on June 25 in the US and July in Europe, to have your favorite Capcom character dressed as another character from Namco or SEGA. Will someone draw Jin from Cyberbots in Ogami Ichiro’s outfit from Sakura Wars, Frank in Bruno Dillenger’s attire from Die Hard Arcade (Dynamite Deka in Japan), or go all out drawing Felicia with Sonic the Hedgehog’s gloves and shoes? The possibities are endless! The contest runs from today through Friday May 31, 9pm PST and Capcom-Unity will pick up to 3 winners for the limited edition of Project X Zone. There’s also another contest if anyone is attending MCM Expo this year for cosplaying as one of the cover characters in Project X Zone.
Did you know if you pre-order Project X Zone, you will get the limited edition version for free? Yep, the first printing run of Project X Zone comes in a neat case, soundtrack, mini-art book, and a mini-poster to hang on your man cave.
Not sure if this is a Gamestop exclusive, but it was the only site that I found the ‘limited edition’ version. Amazon hasn’t even updated the release date (since it was delayed or have box art up).
Project X Zone is being published by Namco-Bandai, but will cross over with Capcom and SEGA. As you can see from the trailer they didn’t add any new characters. You’d think them sneaking Sonic the Hedgehog would have sold a few more copies, right?
So what does everyone think of this game? Looking good? Excited?
It seems that Namco-Bandai is set to publish Project X Zone in America and they plan on releasing on it June 25th. The game takes popular characters from Namco, Capcom and our dear blue SEGA . The idea is to combine them in a big RPG for the Nintendo 3DS.
Looking at all those characters in the header, I’m wondering who would win in a fight: Akira Yuki vs Ryu vs Jin Kazama? I will be biased and go with Akira, how about you?
On Monday we shared the great news that Project X Zone would be coming West this summer. However, we didn’t know certain details including who was publishing it, how much it would cost, and if the title was to be changed or would remain as is. A pre-order page for the game at GameStop.com, which appeared today, answers those questions. The game will continue to be called Project X Zone, the price is $39.99 and the publisher is Namco Bandai Games America. Also included is a brief description of the game: “This epic crossover title brings together the fiercest and most popular legacy characters from NAMCO BANDAI, SEGA®, and Capcom’s most beloved franchises to create a Strategy-RPG experience that can only be described as the ultimate cross-over title.”
Now I don’t know about you, but I definitely didn’t see Project X Zone’s western release coming, especially given the fact that the last several crossover strategy games from Monolith and Banpresto never even made it out of Japan. So what better way to celebrate this crossover’s surprise localization then to post some tunes from the game?
Today, we’ll be featuring the epic main theme as well as the music from the trailer, “Brave New World”. In the future, you can also expect us to feature tracks from the variety of SEGA franchises represented in the game, including Sakura Taisen, Virtua Fighter, Resonance of Fate and Shining Force EXA.
Via IGN comes a bit of awesome news. The very-Japanese-there-is-no-way-it-is-coming-West game Project X Zone is in fact slated to release in North America, Latin America, Europe and Australia this summer! For those not in the know, Project X Zone is a SEGA, Namco-Bandai, Capcom crossover tactical RPG game featuring 200 characters from over 29 different franchises. SEGA fans who have been following the Japanese release of the game have spotted a number of SEGA all-stars including Ulala from Space Channel 5, Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Taisen and Bruno Delinger from Dynamite Deka (the full roster can be seen here). No other information, such as publisher or a possible title change, has been given, but once we learn more we’ll be sure to share it!
