The sequel to Banepresto and Monolith Soft’s ambitious 3DS strategy RPG/fighter hybrid recently launched in Japan, and now seems poised to release elsewhere in 2016. Why is it noteworthy? Well, just watch this shiny new trailer and see if you notice any familiar faces…
Crazy, right? The first Project X Zone (pronounced “Project Crossover Zone” for obvious reasons) featured an incredible cast of characters from various video game franchises. The sequel, Project X Zone 2: Brave New World, ups the ante by a considerable degree. Let’s run down just a PARTIAL list of included franchises, shall we?
- Resident Evil
- Devil May Cry
- Megaman X
- Virtua Fighter
- Street Fighter
- Xenoblade Chronicles
- Ace Attorney
The first Project X Zone nearly got me, considering it featured Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine and X as playable characters. Now that they are joined by even more of my favorite characters, there’s no way I’m skipping this one! Well played.
