A brand new trailer for Project X Zone 2 has arrived! Along with it, we get some of the gameplay in action including a more cartoonish Kazuma from the Yakuza series.

New Project X Zone 2: Brave New World screens and art show off Shenmue’s Ryo Hazuki


Famitsu has dropped another batch of Project X Zone 2: Brave New World character reveals for the upcoming Bandai Namco Entertainment published SRPG crossover featuring SEGA, Capcom, and Bandai Namco characters. In this latest batch SEGA representation is light, but the inclusion of Shenmue’s Ryo Hazuki is huge. Of course, we knew of Ryo’s inclusion for a few weeks. But in this reveal it is confirmed that Ryo will be a Solo Unit character, meaning he won’t be teamed with another Shenmue character (I was really hoping we’d get Wuying Ren). It has also been confirmed that Ryo’s Japanese voice actor Matsukaze Masaya will be returning to the role. Masaya will also be voicing Ryo in Shenmue 3, which means we’ll get our first listen of Masaya’s return to the role in Project X Zone 2!

Other SEGA characters revealed include two NPCs: The evil rabbit eared Ranmaru from Sakuza Wars: So Long My Love voiced by Asai Kiyomi and Garijanon, voiced by Norio Wakamoto, of Resonance of Fate who will be sharing a cutscene with Segata Sanshiro.

After the break, check out the SEGA character screens and art, and check out all the new images over at Famitsu!

Shenmue’s Ryo Hazuki to appear in Project X Zone 2: Brave New World


Japanese website Games Talk has let slip that Shenmue‘s Ryo Hazuki will be joining the cast in the SEGA/Capcom/Bandai Namco crossover Project X Zone 2: Brave New World! Ryo appeared in a piece of artwork from the game featuring several other new and already revealed characters. The artwork itself was in a series of screenshots from the Korean localization of the game. It is unknown at this time if Ryo is a solo unit or is a part of a team. Fingers crossed it’s a team, as that would mean an additional Shenmue character (Ren? Goro? The kitten!?).

After the break, check out a few more screens from the Korean version which feature Virtua Fighter characters.

Project X Zone 2 release dates revealed for North America and Europe

Screen Shot 2015-09-17 at 1.38.08 PM

While the sequel to 2012’s SEGA/Capcom/Bandai Namco crossover game Project X Zone hits Japan this year on November 12th, it looks like those hoping for a localized release won’t have to wait long! The game is due out February 16th, 2016 in North America, and February 19th, 2016 in Europe.

While the first game was an enjoyable fan service filled time waster, Project X Zone 2 looks to be taking things to a whole other level with the inclusion of Segata Sanshiro. There are other additions to the game, but Segata eclipses them all. Don’t hold me to this, but rumor is the game’s cover art will simply be Segata’s scowling face. No logos, no rating info. You won’t even have to pick the game off the shelf, it will jump right into your cart and drag you by the collar to the cash register.

Project X Zone 2 screens and art of Segata Sanshiro and Space Channel 5’s Shadow surface


Yesterday, Japan’s SEGA Saturn mascot Segata Sanshiro was revealed to be appearing in the Capcom/Bandai Namco/SEGA crossover Project X Zone 2. Today, we have official art and screens of Segata Sanshiro via a new article from Famitsu! Segata will be a Solo Unit in the game, meaning he can be attached to a Pair Unit acting as an assist. Also in the Famitsu article is character art and screens of Space Channel 5 Part 2‘s Shadow, leader of the Rhythm Rogues. Shadow will be a non-playable enemy character, meaning players can pit Ulala against her former foe. Also revealed is the trio of Zephyr, Vashyron and Leanne from Resonance of Fate, all of which appeared in the last game. However, it looks like Vashyron and Leanne are trading places, making Zephyr and Vashyron a Pair Unit and Leanne a Solo Unit.

After the break, check out the new art and screens from the upcoming game!

Segata Sanshiro is confirmed for Project x Zone 2

Segata Sanshiro, the fictional marketing character created by SEGA Japan during the Sega Saturn era seems to be making a sort of ‘revival’. It was confirmed on Weekly Famitsu that Segata Sanshiro will have  his own playable solo unit character on the upcoming Project X Zone 2! No screenshots yet, but we will post them when we get them.

The following characters from other publishers have also been confirmed:

  • Captain Commando (Captain Commando, Capcom)
  • June Lin Milliam (Star Gladiator, Capcom)
  • Heihachi Mishima (Tekken, Bandai Namco).

Project X Zone 2 hits Japan on November 12th, North America and Europe players get it early 2016. Check out all the Segata Sanshiro commercials while you wait!

Axel Stone from Streets of Rage, Sakura Shinguji of Sakura Wars and more confirmed for Project X Zone 2


Courtesy of the new issue of Famitsu (and the scans above, provided by @TACK0520 on Twitter), we now know three more characters showing up on the SEGA side of things in the upcoming Project X Zone 2: Brave New World.

Axel Stone of Streets of Rage fame has been confirmed to show up in the game, as have Sakura Shinguji and Gemini Sunrise from the Sakura Taisen series. Whilst both Sakura Taisen characters return from the first game, this is Axel’s first appearance in a seriously long time, and it’s great to see him added to the roster. In addition to these SEGA additions, Capcom’s Phoenix Wright and Maya Fey of their Ace Attorney series are also confirmed to be appearing, as well as characters from God Eater 2 and Summon Night 3. From the looks of things, Axel will be an assist unit, whereas the Taisen characters return in their role from Project X Zone. 

Overall, it’s awesome to see more SEGA love from this game; Axel was definitely near the top of my wanted list, and I’m ecstatic to see him return.

The crossover chaos continues in Project X Zone 2: Brave New World for Nintendo 3DS


Project X Zone, the 2012 crossover for the Nintendo 3DS which threw together SEGA, Bandai Namco and Capcom characters into an epic adventure, is set to return! According to a report from website e-duessee, a sequel is in the works for the 3DS entitled Project X Zone 2: Brave New World. The article itself is a report of an April 7th Bandai Namco press event held in Milan at which the game was announced alongside another unannounced title, Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul for the PS4, PS3, and PC. The original article has since been edited to remove the mentions of the games (whoops!) but thankfully NeoGAF caught it before the removal.

What are your thoughts on another Project X Zone title? Have any characters you’d like to see make an appearance? I’m hoping to see Mega Man, Pac-Man and Sonic, as well as an expanded SEGA cast including Ryo Hazuki and some 1980s characters.
