Project X Zone coming to North America, Europe and Australia

Monday, 21st January 2013 17:37 GMT By Nick Akerman

The crazy 3DS crossover from Sega, Namco Bandai and Capcom is coming to North America, Europe and Australia this summer.

For the uninitiated, Project X Zone features over 200 characters and was released in Japan last October. A healthy total of 29 franchises are represented, meaning even the fussiest of players will have characters to enjoy in this turn-based fighter.

IGN posted an extended trailer to coincide with the Japanese release:

    I’ve not seen any European/UK announcement for that yet. The bundle is heading for Korea on Feb. 7, so it’s probably still a long way off (if it comes at all). Here’s hoping!

    I’m curious. Though, I hope combat isn’t going to be all about juggling.

    Clupula you gotta give handheld gaming a go man. I know you said you hate it but I have been doing it since the classic gameboy. I love handheld gaming. I love handhelds to advance more than anything but love them none the less.

    @8: ;) what i mean is, i really don’t play re revelations and metal gear on the 3ds much…played both, but would rather play games like that on a home console and not on a portable device-just not the games i want on a handheld. that’s why i really never felt the need for a second stick and couldn’t understand why so many made a problem out of that. i wish there would rather be a 2D sidescrolling RE game instead, castlevania, shadow complex RE, new stuff, things that are designed with the hardware in mind, not just smaller brothers of home console games…that’s probably the reason i didn’t like the vita much. it’s a matter of taste. again.

    THIS, luigis mansion, fire emblem, animal crossing, castlevania mof, monster hunter, hopefully code of priness will come to europe soon, braveley default, harmo knight…this console is made for me.

    Well I’m the opposite. I believe handhelds are nothing more than last gen or last last gens consoles condensed into a smaller package. And, I do feel inevitably even nintendo will follow the model and add a second analog stick. It just depends on how many renditions of the 3ds they will make before making it a reality.

    Games like God Eater burst and Monster hunter really do benefit from a second analog stick. Honestly, I’ll be disappointed in Capcom if they don’t make MH3u compatible with a second analog stick.

    It is a personal preference at the end of the day. But, I don’t see why you can’t have a device that does both.

    Either MH3 or 4 need the Circle Pad add-on in order to use one of the weapons, you can’t equip it without having the attachment on the 3DS.

    Destructoid reported that the game will retain the original Japanese voices, with English text, and that there were no omissions due to licensing issues for this release :D That looks like a right hoot to play! My 3DS is ready.
