The lights are on
Move over Smash Bros., Namco-Bandai's upcoming Strategy-RPG, Project X Zone, is a crossover of epic proportions. The game combines characters from Namco's Tekken universe, Sega's Valkyria Chronicles series, Capcom's Street Fighter franchise, and more.
This upcoming 3DS title includes more than 50 characters from 29 franchises. Players use pairs of characters to navigate the world, enlisting the help of another character for battle assists. Namco says the game includes solo and support attacks, cross hits, and finishing moves. In the story, a time rift opens up, which offers a somewhat tenuous explanation as to why characters from such a wide variety of games and eras are able to stand next to one another. Highlighted franchises include Mega Man X, Darkstalkers, Tekken, Shining Force EXA, and many others.To celebrate the game's release, Project X Zone will include a mini-art book and poster featuring the characters and famous gaming franchises represented in the game as well as a music CD soundtrack. Check out the newest trailer below, and for a more extensive look at the game check out this 10-minute gameplay video. Project X Zone releases on June 25.

Good. Since the rest of the year seems crappy for games, this will be a welcome change of pace
oh man oh man ohhhh man i need it sooo bad
Even though I don't know who two thirds of the characters are I still want this.
WHY CANT THIS BE ON THE XBOX?? OR THE PC??!
This game looks gorgeous, and even in 2D, I can tell that it's going to look absolutely FABULOUS in 3D. I'll have to start saving up now; the collector's edition extras sound pretty sweet.
I have a hunkering down that the feel of the overall gameplay is going to revit players into the physics. As it seems to be (to me) A walk in remembering just how much I love really well dressed out 2d action games (Castlevania:SOTN)
God that screenshot makes me want a new Mega Man X game
Systems seller right here. Well for me at least.
Man, I played Super Robot Taisen: Endless Frontier (no idea what it was when I bought it) and this game reminds me so much of it. I think KOSMOS' moves in this game are the same in that. I recognize that move! This game looks awesome!
Reminds me of Marvel VS Capcom. Except better of course.
This totally looks like the game that'll win me back to the 3DS. :)
This game looks tight, if I had a 3DS I would definitely buy this.
