Project X Zone To See “Surprise Demo” In Europe This Week [Update]


Project X Zone is getting a “Lethal Surprise Demo” in Europe this week on the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo of Europe announced this morning. The demo will be available on May 23rd when the eShop is updated.


Update: North America will not be getting the demo this week. A Namco Bandai USA representative confirmed to Siliconera: “We will not be releasing the demo here this week. Once I have a solid date for the North American release, I’ll be happy to share that with you.”


Project X Zone is a strategy RPG developed by Monolith Soft in collaboration with Banpresto. The game features a crossover between characters from Namco Bandai, Capcom and Sega. Namco Bandai had to re-negotiate rights to every character for the game’s Western release, but no content from the game has been cut.


Project X Zone is slated for release on July 5th in Europe and on June 25th in North America and Latin America.
