Namco Bandai have confirmed that Project X Zone is coming to Europe and America. A release date has been set for summer 2013 for the 3DS strategy RPG which brings together Namco Bandai, Sega and Capcom characters.
Despite starring Tekken, Mega Man and Shining Force characters, Project X Zone has been developed by Monolith Software (Xenoblade Chronicles) and Banpresto (Super Robot Taisen).
Together, they've packed in over 50 playable characters from 29 different game franchises who have been brought together after a rift in space and time opened a doorway to various universes, conveniently enabling heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths for the first time. The heroes have to work together to stop evil from spreading into the world.
To do this, you have to use a team of two characters known as a Pair Unit to explore the world. 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. These moves include Solo Attacks, Support Attacks, Cross Hits, and Finishing Moves.
