Hey, look who’s in Project X Zone 2 now!

Fiora from Xenoblade paired up with KOS-MOS from Xenosaga, and Chrom and Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. I’m glad to be wrong about the unlikelihood of Nintendo characters, and Lucina was even one of the specific ones I said I’d want. Still not completely sure if it’s a full four-company crossover with Nintendo getting as many characters as the other three, but considering Fire Emblem has nothing to do with Monolith, it seems possible.

Not that anyone was surprised by any of them, but I did call the return of KOS-MOS, Demitri, Morrigan, and Chun-Li.

One character I didn’t predict, though, was Segata Sanshiro. Who might just be the most badass character in the entire game.

According to Siliconera, Project X Zone 2 will release in Japan on November 12, 2015, North America on February 16, and Europe on February 19, 20156 for Nintendo 3DS. (But I’m pretty sure that’s a typo and people in Europe don’t have to wait an extra 18,000 years.)

I liked the first one even with it’s flaws, and it seems they might be fixing some of those this time around.

Note it says “and more”, so don’t go assuming this is everybody in the game (or even every game that it has characters from) like I’ve seen some people do.

Though unfortunately, it’s probably safe to say by now that, despite the fact that Monolith is owned by Nintendo, they aren’t going to reveal it’s actually a four-company crossover with the unrevealed characters including Link, Samus, Lucina, and Pit.

Awesome Music Thursday: Brave New World

Namco X Capcom was a strategy RPG for the PS2 in Japan. It was a crossover between, would you guess, Namco and Capcom.

This is the opening video from the game, which has a nice little song (Brave New World, which, in the later games they appear in, became the theme song of the original characters Reiji and Xiaomu) and some of the most famous video game characters around (and some obscure ones too; Wonder Momo, Bravoman, and the characters from Forgotten Worlds?).

While Namco X Capcom never got localized, it’s sort-of-sequel, Project X Zone for the 3DS, which adds Sega into the mix too, did. It’s pretty good if you like SRPGs and are familiar with a fair number of the characters in it.

Crossover Chaos: Project X Zone

This is the opening to Project X Zone, a crossover SRPG for 3DS, featuring characters from Namco, Capcom, and Sega.

Actually, it’s both the English and Japanese openings; same animation, different music due to an issue with licensing the Japanese song. I don’t really like either song nearly as well as the one from Namco X Capcom, but the animation, by Studio Trigger, is incredible.

As you can see from the video, everything I mentioned here has also crossed over with a whole lot more: Sakura Wars, Shining Force Exa, Space Channel 5, Super Robot Wars Original Generation, God Eater and more.
