Project X Zone Hits Japan on 11th October

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Now, about that worldwide release...

Project X Zone, the RPG mash-up featuring well-known characters from Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai franchises, has been generating a lot of hype in Japan. Teasing details about battle mechanics, featured characters and even the in-game music have been coming thick and fast, with the most important reveal so far being kept under wraps.

3DS owners in Japan can now be pleased with the news that this title will arrive on 11th October. It's also been confirmed, by Andriasang, that there'll be two brand new characters introduced, Kogoro and Mii Ouryuuji. There's still been no word or hint of a Western release but we'll keep an eye out for any updates; if you still don't know what Project X Zone is, the trailer released in April is below.

I have a funny feeling this'll be just like Jump Superstars all over again.
Prepare for disappointment,muggles.

namco bandai should take the chance and release it in western shores. it would sell well, what with all those characters such as ryu, ken, chun li, as well as the tekken, virtua fighter characters and ulala from space channel 5 in it.

If they release this in the US, I'm assuming they'd go the Digital Route to avoid costs of selling it at retail... or something. Nintendo should definitely look to publishing this game- heck, their own Monolith Soft is developing it

But I'm keeping my hopes low with a tad bit of optimism.




Let's hope this game gets released over here AND with all the content that Japan gets. I hate seeing games get stuff cut out of English region releases just because of stupid crap like character licences and so on. Don't screw us over with this one!!

There is a dull chance that this will come here.Just look at the 2 DS shonen jump fighting games: Jump superstars & jump ultimate stars, both which never got an international release.However, lets hope they actually consider bringing this game out of japan.
