Scenes From Project X Zone’s Opening Anime

By Spencer . July 31, 2012 . 2:44am


A new anime studio called Trigger is making an animated opening for Project X Zone. While the company is new, they have artists that worked on Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, and the Black Rock Shooter OVA on their team.


Yoko Takahashi who sang the Evangelion theme song "Cruel Angel’s Thesis" will sing Project X Zone’s opening song "Wing Wanderer." Project X Zone comes out on October 11 in Japan.

  • Shadowman

    LOL at X and Zero They probably thinking “Dang look at at those Tig ol bitty”

    • Hinataharem

      From the pic positions, it’s like Tron is surprised by Morrigan’s gam gams.

  • ragnarok989

    Just the few pictures here have summed up just about all JRPGs ever. Specifically picture 5. I can’t wait for this game!

  • LustEnvy

    I’m a straight man, yet absolutely gay for Yuri.

  • Peace Legacy

    “Project X Zone comes out on October 11 in Japan.”
    Right on my birthday!
    …except it’s not for Western 3DS users like me
    Oh Japan, you are such a tease! (Is Japan being a Tsundere?)
    “What? This c-coincide with your birthday? It’s just a coincidence, ok? W-well, it’s not like it is released for customer like you or anything, so don’t get any idea, got it?”

  • No wonder Ryu resembles Kittan Bachika a bit.

    Not that its bad, in fact it’s manly.

  • Guest

    It looks like Tron is getting felt up by a Servbot.

    Probably the one on the bottom right with his left hand, trying to look all innocent

  • French

    Cant wait to buy this ! Im buying 2 Nintendo 3Ds XLs one for English games one for Japanese ! Im going to get the collectors of this !! 

    • Mnstrzero00

      What is your job and how can get one like it

      • French

        I sell art my friend ! 

  • Ultimaniacx4

     Man, I love crossovers so much.  It’s so surreal to see something like KOS-MOS and T-elos next to X and Zero.

  • cant wait to see it fully animated :)

  • Go2hell66

    the things i would do to have this game in my 3DS right now…

  • neetyneety

    My my these screenshots look absolutely delicious…~ Yes, I was referring to the swords and guns, though Morrigan’s being sexy as usual.

  • s07195

    N-need to buy 3DS now…

  • thundergodCN

    I know which pic caught my attention

  • Neophoton

    Definitely calls back to Namco x Capcom’s opening animation. Everyone lining up with guns reminds me of the scene with characters like Bravoman, Wonder Momo, and a few others lining up for punches.

  • XypherCode

    Cool! I would’ve made some of ’em my wallpaper if they were big enough xD

  • Anime10121

    This game looks absolutely GORGEOUS (I mean dem opening screens :D) and I hope we are lucky enough to receive it one day.  Namco, you’ve been doing so well (announcing localizations) please do me this favor of localizing this too, and I will forever more be your servant, uh, I meant consumer! :P

    Oh and had to point it out, animation studio named Trigger, the game being on 3DS, and it having Tron Bonne, oh why is fate so cruel to deny me of my Legends 3 after seeing these 3 words in one game :(

  • zferolie

    Zero and X seem confused by being surrounded by large boobies :p

    Also, YAY Tron, shame she is only an assist I think

  • Enigma_XIV

    In picture two who is the boy on the left, and what anime/game, is he from?

    • KilsanZ

      Shining Force Exa,a game for PS2,i think

  • Mike Pureka

    I’ll take “Games Which Will Never Come to America for 1000 please Alex.”

    Makes me kinda sad, but these sorts of crossovers just don’t seem to happen over here.

    • XiaomuArisu

       I believe it has a chance!
      ….a small one but at leat it has one!

    • Blaze Townsend

      There are a few games that did cross overs that did make it.

    • Kody Smith

       The August issue of Nintendo Power seems to have a feature on Project X Zone, so hope may not be lost.

    • James Smith

      Such an awesome crossover would be popular in the west and only a licenses hell stands in the way of a localization. There’s a chance, a small one.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Thanks to the words Gurren Lagann I heard “Raw Raw Fight the Powah!”in my head while seeing the pictures.
    Thank you!

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Zero looks so confused like “What are you people?!”

    • AuraGuyChris

      “Humans with a lot more skin…and jiggle physics than you will ever have.”

  • Jake Deerberg

    Better be seeing my main man Frank in this.

  • CrimsonalCore

    Yo, X and Zero, what are you doing with KOS-MOS and T-ELOS? ;3

  • So many familliar and great characters… even Riela from Valkyria Chronicles III is here… if someone will localize it for Europe, I’ll say “shut up and take my money” :)

    P.S. on the 6th screen Gungrave-like gun was detected. 


    C’mon, Dominic, learn Japanese faster! You wanna play these games, don’t you!?

  • Niermyico

    Ugh! Video! Now!

  • KnightBlazer

    Oh my god, this game man this game.

    • ParaChomp

       I lost the game!

  • 果林

    i see kos-mos and t-elos :o

  • Zero: !!! (Someone has bigger boobies than myself…)


    • Internet is Crash

      You got: WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOR?!?!

  • If this doesn’t have any DLC shenanigans (Capcom I’m looking at you) then I’ll be buying myself a 3DS for this game. Capcom must not screw this up.

  • Göran Isacson

    So have I told you all how much I love images where everyone poses like a team because shit’s about to get real? I love them so much. I love them. SO. MUCH. Kinda hilarious to see Zero and Yuri stand side by side with people like Zanger and the new OC chick with the huge sword, but still- it’s cool beans.

    Though the lack of other characters makes it look like this game will have a smaller roster than Namco x Capcom, which I’m not sure I approve of… or there are several characters that have yet to be revelead and they’re only showing the revealed so far and I’m just jumping to conclusions.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    I LOVE Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.  God that’s a great show. You can really tell that Morrigan was drawn by that team…her artwork is reminiscent of Panty and Stocking’s transformation scene.


  • SetzerGabbiani

    I’m interested to hear Sanger’s interaction with Haken and Kaguya.  That should be VERY interesting.

  • Imaishi-saaaan, we rabu you soooo~

  • Mago Iichi

    Gemini <3

    I'd like to see this in motion

  • Masengan

    I really like that X and Zero are with KOS-MOS and T-elos

  • Seeing Zero again makes me wanna play X3, X4, X5, or X8…

  • colorblindnightmare

    I just realized that i have never seen a picture of jin, ryu and akira all in one shot. My mind just slightly blew up a bit, but any way, now i have a good reason to by a 3ds xl.

  • wahyudil

    I want to see the op
