By Ishaan . September 17, 2012 . 10:45pm

Namco Bandai have released another of their infamously long trailers, this time for Project X Zone. The latest trailer for the crossover RPG clocks in at just over 16 minutes, and includes a plethora of different characters. Watch it below:



Project X Zone will be released on October 11th in Japan, so it’s still a few weeks away, but in the meantime, you can read our extensive coverage of the game by using its tag.

  • Remind me to import a Japanese 3DS. Not waiting around for this one. 

  • nirvana123

    the beginning reminds me of gurren lagann. Ok so triggers doing it that explains it

  • Nitraion

    The battle system is way better than i expected….. ._.

    • agumike (けんじ)

       If you played the Endless Frontier second game, its nothing new, but if you only played NxC or the first Endless Frontier game, its a HUGE difference

      • Covnam

        I’ve only played the first game, but Reiji and Xiaomu’s combo attack looks very familiar, like straight out of that game.

  • コルセット

    Another game most of us will never play.  Thanks for region-locking the 3DS, Nintendo…  ._.

  • Anime10121

    Watches trailer…

    Cries, himself to sleep and yall already know why :(

  • Muffum

    So excited for this game, despite it probably never coming out in America. I will continue to latch onto my false hope of localization until the 3DS as a gaming system is dead and buried. Hell, until probably well after that.

  • Nirun Rangraengjit

    You know what’d be super awesome? If this game came out in North America… and I could buy it… and give them my money.

  • Draculoid

    Well that video was a real joy to watch. Hopefully I get to play it someday.  Would buy in a heartbeat.

  • Niermyico

    I want to play this so bad!

  • Cephrien

    My mind was BLOWN when Megaman X used Shinku Hadouken.

    • Chris Yuen

      15:02 mark, if anyone’s looking for it.

    • Saint_Stahn

      It’s amazing how one game from NAMCO has done more for X than Capcom itself in over a decade. Shiku Hadoken and Flaming Shoryukens (Rising Flames)? Godamn it’s like one big Eff you to all X haters out there. The TRUE successor to the boy blue is BACK. And way way WAY better than ever… it’s so damn subtle but you can tell X was really well showcased here. Also I cried a little bit with the X4 Opening Stage remix… It was too much for a 90s fellow such as myself… Everything else from Reiji and Xiaomu to the originals was just the icing on this very VERY delicious CAKE.

      • Kaihedgie

         Namco isn’t the one handling the crossover, Banpresto is. Quit with the whole Mega Man drama already.

        • kylehyde

          And monolith soft.

        • Saint_Stahn

          Just stating a fact. Not trying to be dramatic. I probably like Capcom more than most people judging for all the recent heat they’ve been getting anyway. And yeah I know monolith soft and banpresto ARE the developers… Kinda funny since this crossover wouldn’t be so appealing for me if it wasn’t for monolith soft taking a part in this.

  • Shiki

    I dunno if this will ever get a localization , but at least , an anime adaptation , please ? x)

    LOL , but seriously , they need to bring this to the west , it’s a ONE DAY BUY , that’s obvious!!

  • topdog2007

    all i can say is yuri and dante like a boss! 
    i can’t wait for this game woot!

  • William Trengove

    Sprites…Sprites Everywhere :D

  • personablaze

    @[email protected] Damn I want this game!,With all these characters in it I dont know If we will get a state side release but I’m still hype…An Broke XD

  • Go2hell66

    oh the 2D greatness
    this game is sooooooooooo goood!

    all of my money, all of it!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    16 minutes long??? More PLIZZZZ.T_T

  • KnightBlazer

    16 minutes of pure CRAYZEE.

  • agumike (けんじ)

    I didn’t notice in his pictures before, but apparently Reiji now has 3 swords on his rack. Noticed when they did Shinra Banshou. It seems to be ice element, strangely. But since Xiaomu has the Water element covered it seems fine but…

  • XypherCode

    I’m already throwing my wallet at my screen but still nothing happens. XD

  • Luna Kazemaru

     October get here so i can play this.

  • darryl scott

    i know this might sound selfish but i wish sonic and shadow was in it

    • IshimaruKaito

      if im not mistaken they have a scan showing that sonic is actually in the game

      • Mecha Hisui

         That was a fake.

  • D H

    Just make a porn and get it over with. Sigh.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      ? Wuut are u smoking here?

      • MrTyrant

        He wants those doujinshis crossover lol

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Lol, the way he phrased his word there is like he hate this game here?T_T

          • D H

            I’m just sick of all those fan-service gimmicks. 90% of the women in that trailer are just there for that reason, just look at their animation thing.

          • MrTyrant

             And who cares about that in a crossover? really. I reserve this kind of comment for games that try to be serious or something, this game is already a fanservice for those who want to see their females and males character from different universe in the same RPG.

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            Fan-service gimmicks? 90% of the women in trailer is only for fanservice? Do you see how they combo chain between character there?
            This makes me wonder whether you see the same trailer as me here?

  • Shadowman

    16 minute of pure crossover craziness that have you begging for more!!

    • Sardorim

       Finally other game fans can understand the amazing beauty of crossovers that we Super Robot Wars fans have been spoiled with for years! Rejoice, the future is beautiful from here!

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        The only thing we need to hope or….. even pray here is for the game to actually come here.T_T BAMCOOOOOO!!!

  • Lourdes Rombaon Oshima

    Why did they use .hack link’s OP as the BGM for Kite????

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Because it is easier here?^_^

    • LynxAmali

       The majority of those were OP themes, I believe. Either that or main title themes.

      SRT: OG is using Endless Frontier’s main title music (shame it’s not Unchain World), Sakura Wars is using the OP that the series always uses as the OP theme, God Eater has an Over The Clouds remix and Reiji and Xiamou have Brave New World from NxC.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Tron must be confused. They got her wrong MegaMan

  • MrTyrant

    So…localization when?

  • neetyneety

    Well, I sure do hope they bring it stateside… ahh frack, who the hell am I kidding, this is never leaving Japan. That’s reality for ya, hits ya like a girl kicks ya in the nuts. It freakin’ HURTS.

    • Shadowman

      Have faith!!

  • I forgot how much I really want this game, until I actually sat through the 16min trailer till the very end. It’s a shame this won’t be localized most likely, but what the hell, it’s still one of the most interesting, innovative games to be released soon.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      STAY Believe here!!!^_^ Who knows that Bamco will sees that the current 3DS had better chances to get more sales compared to when they release OG on DS there.^_^

      And we should not forget here, this game can also be a good advertisement for company about what characters can come lol.

      • Well, I’ll try and stay positive alright, but knowing this game has so many different voice actors, licensing everything can be a pain…not to mention some of the featured games were never released in the west, which may reduce it’s target audience considerably.

        NB has been changing their ways and views on localization and has been making an effort to please the niche crowd, and this game could make it here with some adjustments (keeping the original VO for example), but it’s still a risky move I don’t see NB taking.

        I’m hoping I’m really wrong here though :P So yeah, I’ll keep believing alright!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Namco learn what localization mean.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Umm they have been trying quite hard recently lol. Can’t you give them some credit there?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething


  • French

    I hate unnecessarily long trailers for games…movies etc…

    • Mecha Hisui

       Good thing none of it is unnecessary etc

  • Aw Heng Wang Travis

    Make a Atlus X Square Enix X Nipponichi crossover? =D

  • IshimaruKaito

    some people think they may not localize this game because of voice acting and stuff like that but when they brought over OG saga they did nothing but give the game english subtitles and kept the original voice actors…..and idk about you but i would really not mind if they did that cuz i like the original voice actors anyway……all im saying is they just need to give this some english subs and we would be straight.

    • The main reasons games like this, Super Robot Wars, and other crossovers don’t get localized are mainly liscensing issues. I don’t think getting VA’s are the big problem here.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    I wanna buy a 3DS but Namco’s not letting me.

  • Zonic505

    Finally, a new trailer in time for TGS, & it does not disappoint. Some of those special attacks are insane.

    *insert request for localization version here*

  • Kaihedgie

    Ultraviolet remix <3

  • kylehyde

    That were one of the best 25 minutes of my life (my sister used almost all the bandwith to watch again pretty little liars, so it took me 25 to watch the video, I hope she gets a job soon).

  • drproton

    It’s rough being a TRPG fan who doesn’t speak much Japanese.

  • Fidelis


  • 16 wonderful minutes… followed by the crushing realization that I will never be able to play this…

  • XiaomuArisu

     Over-the-top,Haken Browning,Kaguya,Reiji Arisu,Xiaomu and many more its like Endless Frontier Extreme Edition…I want it!
    And Im sure im not the only one!

  • Göran Isacson

    Old-school Demon Dante jamming on Nevan. That was all I needed to be overwhelmed by desire to buy, and yet I have no goal to throw money at. Sorrow is my existence.

    Also, I’m unexpectedly bummed that there’s no Sonic in a big cross-over game like that. Just kinda expected it, is all.

  • Izzy Miyake

    Someone NEEDS to localize this game or at the very least do a kickstarter for it.


  • KilsanZ

    My hype is the one that pierced the heavens!!!

  • pressstart

    Damn, I want this game for the nostalgic soundtrack and for more Sakura, Ogami, Erica, and Gemini! >_<

  • MrJechgo

    X and Zero look to be the best team ever.
    Rekkoha + Nova Strike
    Hadoken + Z-Saber strike, a.k.a. Mega Man X3’s special attack that cuts 50% of bosses hp.

    Hope that this cross ever the Pacific.

  • ParaChomp

    Is this animated by Gainax?  Why do I ask?  Don’t know, I just got hunch.  Aside from that, though I wish it will, I doubt it will see release overseas but if it does, I’ll be sure to pick it up.

    • LynxAmali

      Trigger, actually.

      A few people left Gainax and made the studio Trigger themselves.

  • a little OT but… hmm i think i would die for a valkyria action game… *gulp* even if it was an FPS, but a 3PS would be better…

  • LynxAmali

    I’m glad I didn’t see a force evasion bar in there.

    No Saya?

    Wanted more Saya’s Multidimensional Adventures co-staring T-elos.

    • It wouldn’t be right if she doesn’t appear at one point.

      I still think she’ll join the fun, as always.

  • Kevin Lor

    I would buy a 3DS for this game if it came to NA but even if it didnt lets hope someone post up the soundtrack on youtube xD

  • NTaiyokun

    I came.

  • Masengan

    This game is epic, just watching that trailer I was feeling the announcers excitement! All I gotta say, them camera angles haha.

  • *Sees KOS-MOS and T-ELOS performing D&U-Teneritas*

    Ok, now I’m even more hyped than before !

    • agumike (けんじ)

      Then I assume the Duo Spell Blade made you die

      • Yeah, that was way too much awesomeness for my poor heart xD.

        Ever since Endless Frontier Exceed I’ve been dreaming of this, but that really caugth me off-guard. I wonder how they’ll top this one.

  • Isaac Newton

    Where Megaman (volnut? From Megaman Legends) where is he?????

    •  Ummm why would he be in it…when X is in the game :L

      • Isaac Newton

        I really want vonutt to be in there and not X cuz just to ease the pain of MML3 being canceled.
        Just one last time I need to see him T_T.
        He’s like a long childhood best-friend that has been gone for to long……..
        I know I’m a drama king but… but….. I WANT TO SEE HIM AGAIN T_T

        • disgaea36

           But he was already in namco x capcom. it would be pointless to add him in there. I would have liked it better of they would have added little mega man, proto man, and bass, now that would be a trifecta.

  • tha_Chiller

    seeing Batsu fight with Ryu & Ken made me rub my nipples…don’t judge me

  • Christopher Nunes

    This awesome! There’s GOT to be a way to get this game to be localized! It’s too awesome NOT to share it with the rest of the world!

  • Joshua

    anyone know the song at 12:19? i remember the tune and its bothering me not knowing what song that is

    • It’s Reiji and Xiaomu’s theme from Namco X Capcom and Endless Frontier. The song is called “Brave New World”.

  • IshimaruKaito

    do you kno i come back everyday just to watch this (yes i may be a bit obsessed) but how can i not be wen this much awesomeness is a click away

  • Anthony Black

    My god, as cool as this game looks, some of those animations are absolutely disgusting. I’m sorry, but I don’t want to look at a closeup of someones ass followed by their boobs jiggling every time they use a special. Maybe if it only happened with a few characters I wouldn’t mind, but in that trailer I can see that it happens with basically every single female character. I might have actually wanted this game otherwise. If I wanted to look at porn I’d look at porn, not play video games!

    • disgaea36

      your comment is so irrelevant it’s not even funny. Get over it! Anime and games have been looking like this for years. It’s just recently they took a nose dive to the perverted sanction like little half naked girls (for example hyper dimension neptunia). What do you expect that they are going to fly all over the place and their skirt is not gonna go up or they breast bounce please. It’s the way the creators made them deal with it there are plenty of characters fully robed. It’s called fan service some people like that but in my case i can look it over and enjoy everything else the game has to offer. There is also not a lot of it, there are way worse games out that with that. It’s far from porn. It’s people like you that start the complain train and we miss out on tons of games.

      • Okay, okay. You can make your points, but let’s do away with the friction/hostility here.
