New Project X Zone Screens With Gemini Sunrise, Haken, And Morrigan

By Spencer . May 16, 2012 . 10:32pm

Xenoblade developer Monolith Soft is the developer behind Project X Zone. They also made Namco X Capcom and it feels like Project X Zone is in a way a spiritual sequel to their PlayStation 2 game.


Most characters are in pairs, but a few like Ulala from Space Channel 5, Bruno from Dynamite Cop, and Valkyrie from The Legend of Valkyrie can join a team for a triple attack. Check out the latest confirmed Sega, Namco Bandai, and Capcom stars below.


Chun-Li from Street Fighter and Morrigan from Darkstalkers

  • haku67

    lol I missread Haken as “Hakan”. I was like NO JURI?!

    Bruno seems pretty cool.

  • Mifune Sword Style,




  • pgover

    I look at these screenshots and all i have to say is this:

    •  Likelihood he’s one of the villains again.

      • Guest

         hopefully Juri is with him

  • Nitraion

    Needs onimusha specialy samonusuke onimusha 3 and vanquish
    genma and robot will be nice enemy

  • Guest

    Dynamite Cop….hmm kinda an obscure choice

    If Ryo Hazuki of Shenmue & Kiry of Yakuza, Hotsuma & Joe of Shinobi, Gene of Godhand, Asura of Asura’s Wrath, Date Masamune of Basara and Segata Sanshiro & Rent-A-Hero #1 get overlooked…..not gon’ be happy..

  • C’mooooon SEGA, put Kazuma Kiryu in there!

    • boundries_san

      Noooo PUT RYOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

      • Repede91

        Why can’t we have both?

  • aoihana

    Ah! I’m surprised Morrigan is so racy.

    I like it. (ц`ω´ц*)

    • Ronald Bixler

       I’d rather they bring Felicia back. She makes a good innocent, flighty, comedy foil, especially when paired with Morrigan’s wise, devil-may-care (pardon the pun), and seductive personality. Worked well in Namco x Capcom and Cross Edge anyway.

    • Guest

       If you cosplayed as Morrigan and took pics would it look good or bad?

  • SilverSven

    Wonder if they’ll add Alady Na’ash and Neige Hausen too.

    Personally, I’d like to see Taizo Hori and the Unknown Soldiers as they were in Namco x Capcom.

    There’s been more and more talk about who the protagonists are. The two most prominent guesses are Reiji and Xiaomu, or entirely new characters. Betting on the latter.

    There isn’t much else to say about Project X Zone at this point. Other than it looking to be really good, seeing the focus on improvement of pacing which a lot of people didn’t like from Namco X Capcom, and the development team’s great track record.

  • kylehyde

    All right now I have more than a reason to want this game and to be worried. I loved Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Froniter and their gameplay mechanics, however I can’t stop to think the bad record of localizations of games developed by monolith soft, I know that many time the publisher has the last word on the matter, however the american support of Namco Bandai for nintendo products has been low too. Anyway I hope that the things could turn good for playing this game.

  • boundries_san


    As i thought the jiggling quality from Banpresto never fails.”Nosebleeding”

  • …….iz dis dat ‘artistic integrity’ me an’ da boyz have been hearin’ about?

  • neetyneety

    I didn’t even know it was possible for me to be more excited for this, but damn, Morrigan proved me wrong. Oh how she proved me wrong.

  • LustEnvy

    Again… BAYONETTA.

  • Go2hell66

    i’m still convinced this is the best 3DS game announced to date

    • Guest

       Certainly would have been more awesome had it have been one of those “3DS/PSP” joint releases

  • Shadowman

    When is this game coming to the U.S?

  • Julien_N

    Gemini~ <3
    The roster seems endless, by the way. We learn data about newcomers almost every week. How far will it go? XD

  • Göran Isacson

    Morrigan and Chun-Li teaming up against one of the Bee people from Darkstalkers. Oh… oh MY.  Valkyrie as support, Gemini Sunrise again and oh my god THAT’S BRUNO? THAT’S DYNAMITE COP? That super obscure Die Hard rip-off that I freaking ADORED back in the old arcade halls? I… I didn’t even know I could nostalgia-gasm this hard.

  • CirnoLakes

    Color me interested if they show Lilith. I like her more, personally.


    • LustEnvy

      She SHOULD be be taking the place of the clone when Morrigan does her Illusion attack. Apparently, they didn’t think to do this… Oh well…

      • Guest

         my sentiments exactly when I saw that pic.. : /

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      I love Lilith

  • cj_iwakura

    One step closer to Reiji and Xiaomu.

  • city_debut

    I truly hope that John Mclane isn’t the excuse they use to not localize this game. :|

  • AzureNova

    Dat Morrigan Mmmmmmmmmmm =^_^=

    • AnimusVox

      They made her look good this time around. I hated the way she looked in MvsC3

      • Guest

         She looked good in Namco X Capcom and Tatsunoko vs Capcom.

  • OH GODS I NEED THIS GAME!!! But I know I’ll never get it because of the huge amount of legal work it would take to bring it overseas.

    I guess I’ll be finishing up Endless Frontier to make up for the fact it’ll never make it over…

    • pgover

      I don’t think “legal work” would stop it from coming overseas. I mean look at games like Cross-Edge and Tatsunoko VS Capcom. Cross-Edge is similar to this game (several characters from multiple game franchises in one RPG) and it came over just fine while Tatsunoko VS Capcom was a titanic legal nightmare due to the Tatsunoko characters all being owned by different localization companies and, at the price of one character, the game still made it overseas.

      I don’t think legal work is the problem with this game so much as Namco Bandai’s localization track record is.

      • I wonder if they just like to skimp out on paying for a proper localization/translation.  I kinda wished they would just get 8-1 on the job.

      • Guest

         The problem is Namco quits before they even try.

        Tatsunoko vs Capcom is really the only amazing thing Capcom accomplished this gen.

  • Surely no one’s actually surprised that Monolith is the developer behind this? I mean, the entire game looks nearly identical to NxC.

    Incidentally, if this game (like NxC) has an opening animation directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, I will be ALL OVER it.

  • dahuuuundge


  • Chow

    Bruno nothing!  He’ll always be Bruce Willis to me!
    …or was it John McClane?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    this is a beat em up right that’s what i heard 

    • Guest

       Grid based Strategy RPG. Look on Youtube for Namco X Capcom vids to get an idea.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    YAAAAY! VALKYRIE!!!! ^_^ I hope Black Valkyrie makes it in as well.

    Also, Yippie-ki-yay, motherf*****!

  • cj_iwakura

    Now I know most of you, like me, are thinking:

    who is this Erica chick, and why should I care?To that I say,

    behold the glory.

  • Zurashii

    I-… is Kaguya making a homage to Suzuka? Looks like she’s doing one of her Fan Dances… *Drools*

  • On the bright side, at least this game is getting its own non-recycled Morrigan sprites.
