PARIS, FRANCE – 5th July 2013 – NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S today released Project X Zone™ exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system in Europe and Australasia. The epic crossover title brings together the fiercest and most popular legacy characters from NAMCO BANDAI Games, Capcom, and SEGA®'s most beloved franchises to create the ultimate cross-over Strategy-RPG experience.
Developed by NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. and MONOLITH SOFT, Project X Zone features over 60 characters from more than 25 historic game franchises by three of Japan's most prolific video game companies. In Project X Zone players will use a team of two characters known as a Pair Unit to explore the world within the game. An additional character known as a Solo Unit can be combined with the Pair Unit to assist in battles with Solo Attacks as well as augment the attacks available for players to execute. Throughout the game, epic battles are waiting to erupt at a moment's notice. Players will have to master an array of screen-busting moves including Solo Attacks, Support Attacks, Cross Hits, and Finishing Moves in order to defeat a multitude of foes.
"Project X Zone successfully brings together some of the best Japanese gaming franchises" said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President, NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe "This astonishing mix of action RPG, strategic gameplay and frantic storyline makes this game a great videogame experience."
Project X Zone takes place in a world surrounded by a hidden chaos with shadows and evil lurking beneath the peaceful cover of everyday life. When a rift in time and space suddenly appears, a doorway to various universes is opened allowing both heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths. Players will be able to take control of a huge selection of paired heroes including favorites such as Jin and Xiaoyu (TEKKEN), Zephyr and Leanne (Resonance of Fate), to X and Zero (Mega Man X) and discover the cause of the rift and stop evil from coming through and spreading into their world.
Project X Zone is available in stores now and on Nintendo eShop.
