Project X Zone 3DS coming to the US/EU
Link to IGN article.
Project X Zone (pronounced Project Cross Zone) is a crossover strategy RPG game for 3DS; it was released in Japan this past October and is now being brought to the international scene. To be honest the same sounds pretty insane: Capcom, Sega, and Namco characters all fighting each other in a crazy mash up. I would’ve liked it to be more of a fighting game (like the vs Capcom series), but it seems like it’s more tactics-like with battle scenes intermittently placed throughout large scale battles.
Based off the promotion video (10 min long) on IGN’s site, the sprites seem pretty small and not really the greatest works of art. But the battles have pretty nice visuals especially when everyone’s going nuts on their special moves and what not. I will most likely purchase this game since I’ve always loved these crossover games with popular franchises: .hack, Megaman, SF, God Eater, etc are all in here. I just hope that the english version has an option to keep the Japanese voice overs, there are some quality seiyuus on the job!
Anyway this is scheduled for international release in summer 2013, so everyone has lots of time to save up the cash!
