Chaos Wars was a mere warm up in Idea Factory mashups. Lahar Sama dropped us a line (thanks!!) about another merger between worlds from Compile Heart and Cross Edge (aka X-Edge) unites even more characters. Souls from Disgaea, Darkstalkers, Mana Khemia, Atelier Marie, Spectral Souls and Ar Tonelico will collide for the first time on the PlayStation 3. Your job is to set them free with protagonist Yuuto Kannagi (he’s wearing the orange shades) and heroine Mikoto Aiba (she has green hair).


Here is a list of announced characters in Cross Edge thus far:


Disgaea (part of the Underworld)



Darkstalkers (part of the Underworld)





Ar Tonelico (part of the Dreamworld)





Mana Khemia 2




Atelier series (part of the Dreamworld)



Spectral Souls





The heart of the Cross Edge is turn based combat through the Direct Action Turn Battle system where players use attacks assigned to the four face buttons of the PlayStation 3 controller. Each character gets a player customized move set and each move consumes AP. Chain up enough strikes and you can unleash a powerful finishing move.




When you free souls in Cross Edge you unlock form changes, which are essentially costumes with different stats. Compile Heart will release Cross Edge in Japan this September and at this time no North American release has been announced. However, there is one company that has a relationship with all, but one of the affiliated licenses in Cross Edge. NIS America is also starting to publish PlayStation 3 games in North America too…
