Default [3DS]SPRG company crossover game Project X Zone will be localized by Namco


Project X Zone features characters from Namco, Capcom, and Sega into a SRPG known as Project X Zone and Namco is localizing it in America, Australia and Europe. It will be released in Summer 2013 with Japanese voices only.

On the Namco side, you have characters from Tekken, God Eater, Xenosaga, .hack, Tales of Vesperia, Namco x Capcom, Yumeria, and others.

Sega has characters from Resonance of Fate, Valkyria Chronicles III, Space Channel 5, Fighting Vipers, Sakura Wars, Virtua Fighter, and others.

Capcom has characters from Rival Schools, Megaman, Resident Evil, Darkstalkers, Devil May Cry(original I believe not the new one), Dead Rising, Street Fighter, and others.

Namco Bandai is bundling extra goodies with Project X Zone. The game will be sold as a limited edition with a mini-art book, poster, and music CD packaged with the game. Project X Zone will still retail for $39.99.

This sounds pretty much like the Japanese release which came in a slightly larger box to accommodate the Crossover Sound Track CD and art book called the Appearance Work Guidebook.

Project X Zone comes out on June 25 in North America and Latin America.

One of the more curious games that was on-hand at last week's Namco Bandai Global Gamers Day was the upcoming localized version of Project X Zone. For those unfamiliar, it's a tactical, strategy RPG that stars a cast of cherry picked characters from three different game publishers: Namco Bandai, Capcom, and Sega.

Some of the franchises that are tapped into are instantly familiar, like Resident Evil and Mega Man X. Whereas others are remotely obscure, like Sakura Wars and Valkyria Chronicles. And then you have Resonance of Fate and Yumeria, hardly household names. ADV Films released the Yumeria Anime series.

Over 30 different franchises are represented, and it was not easy brining everyone over, according to the Namco Bandai rep that walked me through the demo. Every character's rights had to be re-negotiated, but everyone from the Japanese version is accounted. Even John McClain, of Die Hard Arcade fame, though he's referred to as Bruno Delinger, from the non-Hollywood licensed version of the game, Dynamite Deka.

Namco Bandai clearly knows who will be purchasing Project X Zone, hence the limited edition being the only way to go, and why very little has been meddled with. The game retains all its original Japanese voice acting, plus all its original character art remains untouched. Including a very risqu looking Morrigan, who has always been known to show some skin, but it's particular ridiculous this time (enough to perhaps single-handedly warrant the "partial nudity" note in its ESRB rating). Again, fan service to the max.

Project X Zone is for the hardcore fans, plain and simple. The same people who know about its predecessor, Namco X Capcom, which was for the PlayStation 2 and never left Japan. The spiritual successor is more or less the same game: again, it's a tactical role-playing game, which itself is a very hardcore genre. But if you have any familiarity with similar titles (Atlus's Devil Survivor is perhaps the best comparison), then you'll do fine.

Adding to accessibility is the manner in which confrontations play out. The bird's eye view switches to an up close view, similar to a fighting game, and the fights closely resemble them as well. All actions are achieved by pressing the A button in some combination with the circle pad, though it's not as complicated as it sounds. Meaning no dragon punch combinations, at least that I know of.

Combat worked pretty much the same way in Namco X Capcom, but it feels much faster in Project X Zone, as well as more fluid, which is a definite bonus; the biggest complain about Namco X Capcom was the pacing, plus the constricting field map navigation. Pretty much the only thing that Namco X Capcom has over the new game is a deeper roster. Sorry fans of Klonoa, Strider, and Dig Dug. But at least Mega Man fans who are still reeling from the cancelation of Mega Man Legends 3 can enjoy another dose of Tron Bonne.
