Namco Bandai today announced that Project X Zone (still a working title) will arrive here in Europe this Summer. The game features popular characters from Namco, Sega, and Capcom and is described as a "strategy-RPG."
The game, a 3DS exclusive, is being developed by Monolith Soft and Banpresto, and will have over 50 playable characters, sourced from 29 different franchises. Read on for a bit of background story:
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), Toma and Cyrille (Shining Force EXA), 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.
