The big cross-over game from Namco, SEGA and Capcom is heading to North America later this year.

IGN has the details.

IGN said:
Good news for fans of Sega, Namco-Bandai, Capcom, and all things mashups, Project X Zone will be getting the localization treatment for North America, Latin America, Europe and Australia. The game is currently slated to release in summer 2013.

Released back in October in Japan, Project X Zone features more than 200 characters across 29 different franchises. It features characters from three different huge Japanese developers, all coming together to brawl in a turn-based strategy/fighting game combination. Yeah, it's a little crazy.

Here's a trailer from the Japanese version, if you need a refresher on just what the heck this game is:

2013: the year of localizations we didn't think would happen, ever.

I don't know what's going on lately, with XSeed/Pandora's Tower and now this. But I like it.

Is this where we say what game we want to come over that probably isn't coming over?! Rocket Slime 3!

This is pretty neat though.

Is this game worth playing if I don't care about any of these characters?

@anon_mastermind Any!? I sort of didn't recognize most of the Sega and Namco ones, but the Capcom ones are pretty cool.

I think this looks really cool. Now, what is gameplay BETWEEN battles like? Is there like a plot and NPCs to chat with and all that?

Or is it basically just a fighting game with a huuuuuuuuuuge X-over cast?


This is why I am almost always optimistic about gaming stuff. Seems like "this is never gonna happen!!!" ... "huh. looks like it happened" scenarios happen every year.

Aha! Awesome! Called it!

As it really such a big surprise to everyone (except @Davoid) that this game is getting localized? It seemed inevitable to me...so many popular characters in one game!


If this game is going to be similar to Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier, then the between-battle stuff will be typical RPG stuff; walking around and exploring, talking to NPCs, collecting stuff, etc.

@GameDadGrant Yeah, but most of them are very popular in Japan, not quite as much here... other than a few of the Capcom ones. This game feels very very Japanese to me.

It's definitely Japanese, no doubt about it. And the Capcom characters are probably the most popular characters in the game. Still, there's a huge amount of other popular characters from stuff like Virtua Fighter, Xenosaga, Tekken, Valkyrie Chronicles and Tales of Vesperia. These games have very big fanbases. Of course, they'll all be outshone by Capcom's characters (Street Fighter, Mega Man, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Dead Rising, etc). But I wouldn't say the other characters aren't popular, or come from obscure franchises or anything like that.

I mean, c'mon man. TEKKEN.

If they advertise this properly, this could be a HUGE title. Day 1 download right here, folks.

Well then that sounds great!

and *ahem* I'm not surprised either. I didn't call it like Davoid but, as I said above, seems the list of games that never happened is always much shorter than the list of games people thought would never happen but did.

I can't really figure out what the gameplay is like, but I may check this game out when it releases.

It could also be a strategy RPG-like game too. They haven't really shown much outside of the over-the-top battles. Search around on YouTube, you'll find some gameplay videos that'll shine a little more light on what the rest of the game might be like. (though most videos do focus on the fighting)
