Update: Namco Bandai have confirmed to us that Project X Zone will use the game’s Japanese voice track with English subtitles.


Yesterday, Namco Bandai announced Project X Zone, a crossover RPG featuring Namco, Capcom and Sega characters, for a western release on the Nintendo 3DS. The game has over 50 selectable characters from across 29 different videogame series.


A crossover of this scale isn’t something you see released in the west very often, owing mostly to complex licensing issues, so we got in touch with Namco Bandai to ask if the western version of Project X Zone would have any content cut from it as a result of licensing complications.


“The game will feature the same characters from the Japanese version,” a Namco Bandai representative shared with us.


When we asked if that was a confirmation that the game would feature no cut characters or content, another representative responded: “The content of the game should [be] the same as the Japanese version.”


Unfortunately, Namco Bandai declined from sharing whether or not they would be releasing the two Nintendo eShop demos for the game in the west.


Project X Zone is slated for release in North America and Europe sometime this summer.
