Project X Zone Recreates Resonance Of Fate’s Opening Scene As A Special Attack

By Spencer . April 26, 2012 . 3:34pm

Resonance of Fate from Sega and tri-Ace starts out with a dramatic scene where Subject #20 checks her pocket watch and leaps off a clock tower. As she’s plummeting, Zephyr swings from a rope and catches her… but the rope breaks during his rescue attempt.



Namco Bandai used this scene in Project X Zone as the base for a special attack called Midnight’s Chime. Since Subject #20 isn’t in the game, Zephyr swoops in to save Leanne. Both Sega characters are playable in Project X Zone.

The game also has Frank West from Dead Rising and Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers, two Capcom characters with bottomless pockets filled with items, working together. They can do combos like Item Throw & Anki Hou and Face Crasher & Chireitou (pictured below).

    US release, please oh please!

  • Prinnydoom

    Resonance of fate huh……..honestly didn’t see that one coming ah well games could do with more of zephyr and leanne.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Well the FrankxHsien team makes sense.
    And that RoF scene is amazing!Please dont be Jp only,I want over the top crossover for 3ds!

  • thebanditking

    hopefully this game has a shot at a western release, but I will say I wish the character art was a bit more impressive. Don’t get me wrong its better then I could draw but for a professional project it looks a bit amateurish when compared to other games these respective companies have put out, especially Namco who have some seriously talented artists on staff. 

    • SetzerGabbiani

      That I agree with.  The cut-in art is not impressive at all.

  • LynxAmali

    I-I-Is that a Liger Soma and Alisa are fighting?

    Oh god. Oh god. Oh god.

    Let me crawl up into the fetal position for a moment.

    Oh god. Oh god. Oh god.

    • Tommy Lee

      It’s an Aragami(the term for God Eater’s monsters) called Kongou.

      • LynxAmali

         Huh. The frog thing? Looked like the Liger (y’know, the thing that shoots Lightning bolts and pounces on you) 

        Didn’t really see the frog.

        • Tommy Lee

          It’s the simian thing with pipe organs on it’s back.

  • Day one buy +1

  • MrKappa

    This just reminded me that I still have to beat RoF and GEB.

  • ShadowWolf

    Capcom, this is a chance to redeem yourself in the eyes of JRPG fans after Abandoning Breath of Fire for years.

    • Guest

       This isnt a Capcom published game. Its Namco

      • Darrel Daley

        Yeah, that’s why it looks good.

        • cj_iwakura

          And that’s why it’ll never come out here.

      • SetzerGabbiani

        True, but Namco could feasibly hand off publishing duties to a more willing Capcom in the USA.

  • TheSquishyTanker

    This is coming to the US, right?

    • cj_iwakura

      Signs point to no.

  • eliel

    i don’t think this is gonna get localization in da US,just got a bad feeling jap only i hope im wrong.. BTW the sprites look awesome :D

  • Jahred Down

    Need this game.

    Solely for the possibility of Sega doing another Resonance of Fate. Do it Tri ace & Sega.

    I’ll be waiting.

  • Paying homage to Resonance of Fate? Now I’m even more interested in this game.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Zephyr and Leanne have managed to raise my hopes for this game, though the roster still seems very lacking. Sega definitely needs Sonic and Tails, while Capcom could do well with Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu, and maybe even Asura (since other CC2 characters are present). Finally, Namco could severely use Gilgamesh and Ki, Red Savarin (same justification as Asura), and of course Klonoa.

  • Oh god. Please bring this awesome game to the U.S.

  • We need a way to get this game hyped up as much as we can if we want any shot at getting a localized version of it on our side of the world.  The licensing nightmare for this is almost going to make it impossible.

    • Brandonmkii

      What licensing nightmare? All the characters featured in this game so far are all from companies who have had most of those games, characters,  and franchises copyrighted in the USA for a while now. It makes me feel a little optimistic, as I’d love to play this game in English too.

      • SetzerGabbiani

        I don’t know why people don’t get this simple fact.  Only 3 companies are really involved here. Street Fighter is owned by Capcom USA, for crying out loud…

        This has a better chance that Namco x Capcom and SRT:OG Endless Frontier Exceed.

    • Guest

       I wish people would stop saying this

  • Visa Vang

     I just came a little…

  • Masengan

    Another 3DS game to get excited about.

  • Nyandroid

    This game is looking better and better. <3

  • Micheal Willis

    No Vashyron, no sale :(

  • IshimaruKaito

    this is coming to states right?? RIGHT!?!?! PLZ SOMEBODY SAY RIGHT!!

    • Very likely, so I wouldn’t worry.

      • HeatPhoenix

        not very likely.

    • Souji Tendou

      Not likely. :p

  • z_merquise

    Funny thing here is I’m planning to get Resonance of Fate this weekend after becoming curious of this “All we got are raisins” quote. What I found was this: 

    But after seeing how it played in this video, I’m instantly amazed! 

    I mostly played strategy-RPGs and action-RPGs but not traditional RPGs. So this game could be my 2nd RPG (Endless Frontier in the DS being the first). I read the battle system is quite complex so it would take someone like me a while to get used to it I guess.

    • Spirit Macardi

      The battle system is pretty much the definition of “Easy to learn, hard to master.” It’s certainly not the simplest system out there, but it’s also far from obtuse. Once you get the hang of it though, it’s endless fun.

    • AzureNova

      I’m sooo glad you posted that scene! That was one funny scene in RoF. I’m also glad that you’re interested in the game because as one of its owners I can tell you that it is very fun and interesting.

      P.S. We may only have “raisins’ in the game, but they’re OUR wonderful raisins =^_^= XD

    • Julien_N

      I don’t know much about EoE/RoF aside from its focus on firearms as weapons and the fact that it is developped by Tri-Ace, but oh man, that was one hilarous event! The random dance elevates this moment to a very high level of craziness. Cult Classic material I would say.

  • Since Subject #20 isn’t in the game, Zephyr swoops in to save Leanne. Both Sega characters are playable in Project X Zone.”


    Hm… aren’t Leanne and Subject #20 the same person? Though quite frankly, the plot was so confusingly vague at times that I wouldn’t be surprised if I got it all wrong.

  • Damn I hope we get this game stateside. 

    • GreekGod88

      And Europe please^^

  • Fuckin’ God Eater and Resonance of Fate up in this piece!?

    My dream game. 

  • DAYUM! EVERY. Single. Character revealed so far has been in a game that was localized to the West (including/ESPECIALLY Sanger from the SRW:OG series). If this game does not get localized anywhere else but in Japan… damned Region Lock…

    •  On an related note: I can’t believe I am STILL ALIVE! I don’t know, I just AM!

      • Ronald Bixler

         Congrats… I guess… Here. Have some cake to celebrate. Don’t worry, it is not a lie.

    • Ronald Bixler

       Valkyria Chronicles 3 was never brought to the west.

    • Sakura Wars was never here either. Well then ones with Sakura in them.

  • Nitraion

    aww that scene become special attacks that’s so cute…:3
    I’m having fun with RoF that’s why i platinum it XD

  • Kitestwinblades

    I hope Resonance of Fate/End of Eternity gets a little more attention now.
    I was looking forward to that game more than FFXIII the year it came out. Tri-Ace practically gave us the meaning of 3. That Japanese demo just blew my mind away XD I can KICK grenades and clear about 15 meters with one leap, WHILE shooting? My kind of game X3 The attack looks really nice but for some reason, Even though they Never mentioned Vashyron being in the game. I was thinking about the part in the beginning when he was fighting Zephyr. This looks AWESOME though so i’ll take it :3

    • only thing about the ROF was it was too cryptic in it’s story. man i was lost for a huge chunk of the game

      • Kitestwinblades

        Lol Yeah but it was pretty fun learning about the tower(structure-going to lower levels) and their personality really showed during battle. I’ve Never seen a party have so much fun in combat before. They really talk to each other a lot. 

        But yeah the overall story was pretty strange. You could kinda tell a little bit of it from the very beginning but nothing very clear at all. Although “I” had a blast with the combat-I would imagine that a lot of people wanted more from the game to push them forward. The Story definitely doesn’t score high points on that >_<  

        • No for sure the combat was a dam blast, i especially loved dressing them up … secret of mine that i shared with the world lol but it was a great game. it was fun and funny and serious. thats why the story was a bit of a let down because everything was built up so well.

          • Kitestwinblades

            Lmao XD Yeah the amount of stuff you could put on them surprised me SO MUCH. I really wasn’t expecting it at all when I bought the game. Its like they had a fashion team on the project during some of its production or something XD Clothes and gun choreography were very well done. 

            I agree- that’s like the timeline of the experience X3

          • indeed, the fashion was really good, i was really surprised, it’s thing you could wear but …. between us …. you put cat ears on leanne with the maid outift didn’t you! you naughty dog you!! LOL :)

  • SilverSven

    Is it just me, or is Siliconera as fond of this game as I am? I’m seeing new articles even if there is nothing being revealed.

  • HeatPhoenix

    I’d like Classic Mega Man in this game.

  • Göran Isacson

     Hsien-Ko and Frank West fighting DMC3 reapers. God I want this. I want this so bad my hunger for it is cannibalizing my inner organs as we speakohfuck now I’m dying.

    • WyattEpp

      You should probably stop that– dying would almost certainly prevent you from playing it.

    • Toriko???

  • DO THIS! Dulk Fakis + Amatsuguchi + Hannibal vs Alisa + Kirin Girl + Nagisa!
