Over 25 Historic Game Franchises from Three Japanese Publishers Band Together for an Epic Strategy RPG Experience


Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today released Project X Zone™ exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS™ system in North America . 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 200 characters including playable characters, NPCs and enemies 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 a Solo Attack 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 Special Attacks in order to defeat a multitude of foes.

Project X Zone successfully combines beloved characters, strategic gameplay and an epic storyline into a groundbreaking video game experience,” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.  “The fast-paced tactical battles and sheer volume of fan service will delight any fan of NAMCO BANDAI Games, Capcom, and SEGA.”

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 currently available in stores with an ESRB rating of “T” for Teen at a MSRP of $39.99 and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for $34.99.
