Project X Zone’s Explosive Trailer Has Five Characters In A Crazy Crossover Combo

By Spencer . July 2, 2012 . 12:46am

Project X Zone from Monolith Soft puts players in control of character pairs like Zero and X from Capcom’s Mega Man X series, Akira and Pai from Sega’s Virtua Fighter series, and KOS-MOS and T-elos from Namco Bandai’s Xenosaga series. In battle, both characters pummel one poor monster.


Let’s say you have Dante and Demitri standing next to Kite and BlackRose standing next to each other. You can call them in for a support attack and have four characters attack at the same time. Want to make a skirmish even more chaotic? Call in a solo unit like Valkyrie or Ulala and you can have five characters sync up for one attack.


Project X Zone comes out in Japan on October 11.

  • Hey. it’s that ship from Namco X Capcom~! Could this and NxC be connected?

  • I like how so many party members can be brought in at once.  The battle system in Super Robot Taisen OG Saga was already pretty snazzy trying to chain front line party members with support, so I’m curious how all these tweaks to the system pan out.

  • DanteJones

    “DaiZenGar..?” HNNNGGGHHH.

    Also: gotta love how Sanger Zonvolt is by himself. He don’t need no party members! Though the lack of Xiaomu and Reiji in that trailer is worrisome..


      I can’t imagine they wouldn’t be there. They were in Endless Frontier in addition to their original game, after all…

    • LynxAmali

       I can see them going unannounced, if anything.

      Otherwise, I can’t see them being in. Which is sad.

      I need my Not!Kyosuke and Not!Excellen fix. I’d love to see the interactions with Sanger but since we have Kaguya and Haken…..

  • zeta

    so this orgy of characters will come to the west or not?

    • Greek-God88

      i doubt it 
      though i would buy a 3ds in an instant if it comes to EU T_T

    • Guest

       Unless they keep the JPN voices which I doubt theyd let them do, I dont think so

  • Looks like one crossover I can get behind.

  • IshimaruKaito

    T.T GOD! WAT DO I HAVE TO DO FOR THIS GAME TO BE LOCALIZED!! SOMEBODY LIKE PLZ GIVE ME A LINK OR SOMETHING THAT WILL LEAD ME DIRECTLY TO MONOLITH OR SOMETHING I NEED TO BEG AND PLEAD FOR THIS GAME TO COME OUT IN THE US! PLZ HLP ME  OUT!!! LOL! ( i just hope this isn’t like super robot taisen  EXCEED where i had to import it) i just dnt hve enough money for a japanese 3DS. ( ohh and srry for my little rant here LOL!)

  • Cephrien

    Soma and Alisa teaming up with Ryu and Ken?

    Okay, that’s just pure chaos.

  • Is it bruce willis ?

    • It’s a character from “Dynamite Cop”, which was inspired by the Die Hard movies. So yeah, in a way that is Bruce Willis, lol.

  • XypherCode

    My wallet needs a workout…
    It’s getting pretty slim XD

  • epy

    And you see, this is why I hate the 3DS being region locked, unless they localize it which I deem extremely unlikely even though its probably not that complicated. Then again, if they do localize it, I’ll probably be annoyed at most of the voices they choose.

    Also, still no Reiji and Xiamu? Come on!

  • I recognize the voices of Nakai Kazuya (Soma) and Inada Tetsu (Arthur). Too many characters to recognize all, but most of them likely have their designated voice actors anyway.

    • LynxAmali

      The master of The Universe wants this game localized.

      Universe, man.

  • darkfox1

    Aghhhhh so godlike!!! I love how flashy this game is I can’t stand it! Man would love for this to come here

  • MrJechgo

    Damn, this game’s gonna rock ! And just how many weapons does X have ? I don’t recall having drills in X4, because those were from X3.

  • riceisnice

    I see Ulala.

    • MrJechgo

      as well as a bunch of other SEGA characters that she summons, like Opa-Opa.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        U no mention Space Harrier???T_T

    • Guest

       But no Segata Sanshiro

  • Shadowman

    This game is so awesome T__T why want it come to the U.S

  • Prinnydoom

    Well i know my perfect team: Yuri, Dante, Zero, kite and Zephry. Probably won’t be possible but what the hey.

  • disgaea36

    This seriously needs to come to the US or im gonna be very upset. We already missed out on namco x capcom. Can we at least have this one. would look awesome on my soon to be 3ds XL.

  • Go2hell66

    Love how ryu and ken FADC’s all the time, megaman and zero need more screen time in these trailers though…

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    In just 10 minute……….. my life is fulfilled.^^

    But now after listening to all the VA there……. the chance for this game coming is getting lower and lower.T_T

    BAMCOOOOOOOO!!!! Bring this golden piece here!!! I will even bought 2 copy for you here.T_T

    And it seems we will fight Calamity Raven there.^^ Considering i see the giant tank there.^^(Forget the name lol.^^)

    • z_merquise

      I remember playing the demo of Valkyria Chronicles 3 and that giant enemy tank’s name is Echidna or something.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Oh yeah.^^ Just remember the tank here lol.^^

        The tank is really a pain in the ass when you face them the first time lol. Considering they are followed by lots of gatling gun user there.^^

        Well at least with this, i can picture fighting againts Daharl here.^^

  • KuroiKen

    Okay, now I’m TOTALLY importing it. Good for me to have a jpn 3DS, right?
    Sakura Taisen characters ^_^
    Just great. Sometimes I’m thankful to myself for learning languages.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Learning languages is definitely one of the worth thing studying lol.^^

  • Its the Super GameChara Wars!!
    Wonder if the story will be like Endless Frontier?

    To me, Namco X Capcom, Endless Frontier series and this title forms some kind of crossover saga (the Super GameChara Wars :P).
    Not thrilled about gameplay but want to know the story.

    Now waiting to see original enemy boss designs.

  • tubers

    Any ideas if there are gonna be vocaloid cameos?

  • Christopher Dean

    Buck up guys! Who’d have ever thought we’d get Code of Princess in America, and I considered that a longer shot than this, amirite?! 

    Anyway maybe Nintendo will grow a pair and take it upon themselves to see that this gets overseas; Monolith is 2nd party Nintendo seem the Big N would have some pull…

  • Adrián Alucard

    we’ll need an operation rainfall to bring the game to USA and Europe

  • Just take my money…. just take it! here! Take it! Why aren’t you taking it? D: 

    I want it! T^T

  • I lol’ed at Alyssa and Soma juggling a Vajra.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Good lord do I hope this isn’t the final roster, since in my opinion it’s a pretty weak offering. Out of 48 characters, there’s only 6 that I have any interest in. Even at that, only half of them are ones that I would consider favorites of mine.

    And as usual… WHERE THE HELL IS KLONOA?! It’s the year of his 15th anniversary, yet you won’t even celebrate it by tossing him a playable role in a company-wide crossover game? That’s what’s called a d**k move.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Lol and to think here i feel that this roster is damn great here. Sega throwing classic Sakura series + Valkyria series is a very great thing here. Not to mention Resonance of Fate is also there. Ulala and the classic Virtua Fighter also makes this whole game looks better lol.

      While Capcom is a bit weak, they also include X and Zero there and also Dynamite Cop there to add for. Darkstalkers character there is also a good promotion for the upcoming Darkstalkers 4 lol.

      Bamco series with good old Valkyria and Sanger Zonvolt there, Tales series and .hack series is looking damn good lol. God Eater is also a good franchise to put there.

      About Klonoa there, after not seeing Sonic inside, i can not see Klonoa in there considering it seems that they are trying to limit the game for human form character only. No fury lol.

      • Spirit Macardi

        Like I said, it was my own opinion.

        Frankly, having only human and human-like characters is beyond boring to me. All these companies have tons of unique and varied characters, yet they’re only including ones of a certain species? Plus, the game was teased with chromosomes, which would normally hint at genetic diversity in the roster. Yet despite that, there’s no Klonoa, no Sonic, no Amaterasu, no Red Savarin, and not even Viewtiful Joe.

        Namco X Capcom didn’t limit itself like this, so really it’s a major step backwards.

      • Guest

         Klonoa was in NamcoXCapcom and if anything he should be in this game just for the sake of having Joker be a villain again since he was a pretty good villain

        • elvergudo666

           chinga tu madre!!!!! peña nieto

        • Spirit Macardi

          I think you mean “Joka.” Also, Janga from Klonoa Heroes: Legend of the Star Medal was one of the villains as well (even though he kinda… died in that game x3).

          • Guest

            Well having played Klonoa for Wii, they call him Joker as well as the fan translation of Namco X Capcom

          • Spirit Macardi

            The Namco X Capcom translation also messed up the name of Guntz though, and the Wii remake of Door to Phantomile screwed up Huepow. So I don’t think either is a reliable guide x3

  • Looks great. I would get this on 3DS localized or not. I’m gonna have to import a Japanese 3DS one of these days. Chances are very slim it will be released with all the copyright licenses in this cart. My favourite characters in this, are the Tales of Vesperia added in.

  • Zonic505

    Wow, 10 minutes long! Glad to see Namco releasing such a long trailer for this.

  • Carocaro4

    the game looks mediocre but the cut shots have the best jiggle physics ever.

  • Jugiatsu

    Since there are a lot of people who keep asking how you can help get this game on the “interest” chart for NA/EU localization be sure to go here as well as bug NamcoBandai, Capcom, and Nintendo of America for this game on their Twitter/Facebook acounts. 

  • exsimio

    muerte a peña nieto

  • WyattEpp

    Augh, not…sure if….want.  (I really, really disliked Mugen Frontier, and these battles resemble that.)

  • Masengan

    This game looks freaking amazing!

  • Nikolai Sumcad

    When I saw Sakura and the Ensign I literally went OH MY GAD

  • FB

    looks pretty fun, it would suck to miss out on another NamcoXCapcom-esque game, but jeeze laweeze if I couldn’t recognize more than half of the characters in this video. 

  • Ace

    Not bad. Not bad at all.
