When we found out that Capcom, Sega and Namco Bandai were teaming up for a 3DS super project last February, we got pretty excited. Now more details on the project have come through and our excitement readings are off the charts.
As Famitsu (via Andriasang) reports, the game is currently named Project X Zone, and is a strategy RPG. Pairs of characters from each franchise will do battle with their rivals, including some dream team ups. They’re listed below.
Ryu & Ken (Street Fighter 0)
X and Zero (Mega Man)
Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry)
Chris and Jill (Resident Evil)
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)
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)
Chris and Jill against Jin and Ling Xiaoyu? We must be in heaven. More specific details like release windows and gameplay footage are yet be to revealed. We sure hope they get here soon, though.
