That Crazy Crossover RPG Project X Zone Is Coming To Australia

Project X Zone, a strategy-RPG and crazy collaboration between Namco Bandai, Sega, and Capcom, is coming to North America, Europe and Australia later this year. The 3DS game features characters and worlds from all sorts of games, from Darkstalkers to Valkyria Chronicles to Street Fighter.

Other franchises making appearances in the nutty game: Tekken, Mega Man, Resident Evil and many more.

Here's publisher Namco Bandai's press release:

Developed by Banpresto and Monolith Soft, Project X Zone features over 50 characters from 29 historic game franchises by three of Japan's most prolific video game companies. In Project X Zone players will use a team of two characters known as a Pair Unit to explore the world within the game. An additional character known as a Solo Unit can be combined with the Pair Unit to assist in battles with Solo Attacks as well as augment the attacks available for players to execute. Throughout the game, epic battles are waiting to erupt at a moment's notice. Players will have to master an array of screen-busting moves including Solo Attacks, Support Attacks, Cross Hits, and Finishing Moves in order to defeat a multitude of foes.

"Project X Zone is the first title to ever combine such a large cast of characters from a varied list of game franchises into one grand adventure," said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. "Developing a cohesive game and storyline to encompass all of these great characters and their battle-styles was a huge challenge that has paid off greatly with the creation of a truly unique and groundbreaking gaming experience."

Project X Zone takes place in a world surrounded by a hidden chaos with shadows and evil lurking beneath the peaceful cover of everyday life. When a rift in time and space suddenly appears, a doorway to various universes is opened allowing both heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths. Players will be able to take control of a huge selection of paired heroes including favourites such as Jin and Xiaoyu (TEKKEN), Toma and Cyrille (Shining Force™ EXA), to X and Zero (Mega Man® X) and discover the cause of the rift and stop evil from coming through and spreading into their world.

Also worth noting: there will be no English voiceover, according to Destructoid. The Japanese voices will go over English text.

    Down with American dubbing!

    What? WHAT?!

    I never thought this would come over. Genually shocked. Day one :D

    I noticed on the preview that Dante is in this again. Curious as to why capcom still haven't changed their rendition of dante to match the new one

      Capcom tried to get the new Dante to come in for mo-cap sessions and the like, he couldn't make it as he was too busy brooding in the corner and planning his next haircut.

      Probably cuz the new rendition of Dante is not Capcom's Dante, it's Ninja Theory's. It's only right that Capcom bring along the original Dante to this.

    I can not believe this - I have to be reading this wrong?? Excited to all hell! Just bring it on already!! Shame about no English voice over though, but the Japanese voices are awesome still :)

    well, somone can go back in time and laugh at me for thinking this would never come to western shores...

    wow! wasn't expecting this either. just wish they'd bring over the previous ps1 game too

    No English dub? Really? That's almost as awesome as the fact that we're even getting the damn game!

    I just peed my pants a little bit, and anyone else feel like they missed out on so many games.
    Also Die Hard arcade lol.

    Oh my god I see Xiaomu and Reiji at the back! Hurrah!! I LOVED Namco x Capcom (predecessor to this game) but it was fully in Japanese so I had to bust out the dictionary/fan translation text files.

    So glad this one would be more accessible!!!
