How Dante Meets Demitri And Other Project X Zone Introductions

By Spencer . August 9, 2012 . 11:22pm

Project X Zone brings dozens of Sega, Namco Bandai, and Capcom characters for a story driven strategy RPG. Most of the characters come in teams like Dante from Devil May Cry and Demitri Maximoff from Darkstalkers. The two characters become buds when late Demitri stops by Devil May Cry (the shop) late one night. Valkyrie from The Legend of the Valkyrie games shows up to first asking Dante to use his toilet.

Meanwhile on the luxurious cruise ship Bermuda, the ICPO and San Francisco City police are working together. That’s how Chun-Li from Street Fighter, Bruno (aka Bruce Willis) from Dynamite Deka, and Rikiya Busujima from Zombie Revenge meet. While they’re investigating the ship they meet a strange guest, Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers.

If Akira from Virtual Fighter didn’t find Jin team Tekken wouldn’t be in Project X Zone. Jin and Xiaoyu were attacked by a demon and by chance Akira shows up. The player has to move Akira over to the weakened Tekken characters and rescue them.

That’s a small sample of Project X Zone’s storylines. The game comes out in Japan for Nintendo 3DS on October 11.

    So why would Akira need to save Jin? Is he trying not to go Devil and kill things outright despite him having more control of it as of late?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Because Devil mode has risk of Jin attacking Xiao Yu too. And of course because Akira is badass there.

    Valkyrie…….asking for Toilet there?…….Dante…going to peep?^_^

  • Solomon_Kano

    Dante working with Demitri seems suitable. I won’t get my hopes up, but it would be nice to see this localized.

    • We can just ask Namco if there isn’t already plans to bring this over. If I remember correctly, they localized this one game because some of their fans asked nicely.

  • Well, from the stories above, this definitely has Namco X Capcom’s spirit in terms of intriguing story plot.

    • Masengan

      I see it as a spiritual successor, I’ve always wanted Namco X Capcom and whenever I asked about it people would just bring me Marvel VS Capcom…

  • z_merquise

    Seeing characters of different games/series interact is what made cross-over very appealing.

  • Zertan

    Dante: Nature calls? It’s in the back.
    Valkyrie : Thank you *runs to the back*
    Dante: Huh?  That’s a first. -_-

  • Göran Isacson

    Chun-Li teaming up with Bruce willis. It’s so genius I never realized how I couldn’t want it until this day.

    Have to admit that Demitri and Dante teaming up is kind of unexpected though, I mean Demitri is the kind of guy with a special shine to virgin maiden blood: you’d think that Dante’s first instinct on seeing that guy walk through his door wouldn’t be “WELP THIS GUY SEEMS LEGIT :D ”

    I did giggle at how Valkyrie using his bathroom though, ifonly because it’s such a mundane thing that you never think videogames have to worry about… unless they’re Travis Touchdown.

    • Daniel Morandi

       Your comment reflect my very thoughts.

  • Shadowman

    Project X zone Y U NO LOCALIZE YET!!!

    • Forget It. Like Namco x Capcom, this will never be localized ):

      • 1) You forgot Cross Edge that got localized for PS3.

        2) Also, I have a strange feeling that the majority of the 3DS library over the next 7-9 months will be comprised of “niche” games just like this and with that attitude, don’t expect anymore games to be localized at all.

        • Didn’t NIS had a hand in that Localization?

          • Daniel Morandi

             Is like a fact that if there is a Disgaea cameo, NISA will bring those games lol

          • Not that far away from the truth, you know!

      • Shadowman

        I will not accept it! It will get localize some day.

        • XiaomuArisu

           Thats the spirit!Together we can win this fight!

      • Shadowman

        Thanks. I’ve been known that.

  • If only The Expendables were Sega-Licensed. Then, we would have John McClane, John Kimble, Rambo, Ivan Drago, Sgt. Cordell Walker, Wong Fei Hung, Frank Martin, Colonel William F. Guile and THE US President: Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho!

    • Solomon_Kano
      • Oops, meant John McClane. Dunno what I was thinking back then. But McCain making the cut in this game would be kind of amazing, depending on how he might be written or his in-game role… anyways, original post was edited.

        • Solomon_Kano

          It would be hilarious if they actually did put McCain in. Hell, he could team up with McClane.

          • I actually though the same thing! But more like John McCain and Mike Haggar!

          • Solomon_Kano

            That would be a funny team up. I actually kinda wish that could happen now lol.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Dante’s situations are hilarious, and I miss Zombie Revenge… good times on my Dreamcast… good times indeed… excuse me (princess) I have to go cry in remembrance of the days that I played in my Dreamcast
