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.)

Scattered E3 impressions

I know I haven’t been posting much recently. I’ve been busy with other things, and I don’t really expect to get around to some of the other thing I have in mind for a few weeks.

This particular week one of the things that’s been occupying my time has been following the news from E3, so for now I’m just going to say a few things about a few games.

I’ve never even been that big a Star Fox fan, and I think Star Fox Zero is one of the best games shown.

And it goes without saying that Super Mario Maker is really shaping up to be a must have.

Nintendo is still being annoyingly vague about whether Fire Emblem Fates has two versions like the Japanese release. Though the title seems to be consistent with that nonsense, while the Japanese title (Fire Emblem If) sounds more like the way the game was originally announced where you make an important choice during the game instead of being locked into one by buying it.

Video Game Challenge Day 5: Favorite character of other/no gender

“Favorite character of non-binary or player-defined gender”

This is where gender-selectable RPG protagonists go, and Robin from Fire Emblem Awakening would hardly be a bad choice, but I’ve got someone else in mind. And no, it’s not Subaru either.

In this case, I’m going with a classic character who’s been in a lot of games. Originally a sidekick, but also the star of their own series. Sometimes called “he” but lays eggs. Also sometimes paired up with an even earlier character who was the first transsexual character in video game history.
