If you’re as curious as I am as to what this big crossover game from SEGA, Capcom and Namco Bandai will be…then you’re in luck! The latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has finally revealed the game — and it’s not what you think!
The game will be called Project X Zone (pronounced as Project “Cross” Zone). Sadly, it won’t be a fighting game as a lot of people hoped it would be.
Instead, it will be a strategy-RPG featuring characters from all three gaming companies. The characters will be teaming up in pairs for the game’s fighting scenes.
We’ve also listed the characters who’ll be participating in this mega-game and they’re shown below as pairs.
Ryu & Ken (Street Fighter 0), X and Zero (Mega Man), Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry), Chris and Jill (Resident Evil)
Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars), Jin and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken), Kos-Mos and T-elos (Xenosaga), Yurie and Estel (Tales of Vesperia), Kaito and Black Rose (.hack)
Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro (Sakura Wars), Pai and Akira (Virtua Fighter), Kurt and Riela (Valkyria Chronicles), Ulala and Touma (Space Channel 5 and Shining Force EXA)
The game will also have its first official trailer later this month.
