Project X Zone Unveils Yet More New Characters

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Crossed over with a crossover

When it comes to crossover titles, Project X Zone is pushing the boat out by merging three universes: SEGA, Capcom and Namco Bandai. One issue that won't affect this game is a shortage of characters, with plenty of them lined up already and more just announced.

Famitsu has revealed (via Andriasang) that Tron and Kobun/Servbot, from the Mega Man franchise, will be involved. SEGA is joining in with Bahn from the Saturn's Fighting Vipers, while Namco Bandai is including characters Reiji Arisu and Xiaomu from PS2 crossover title Namco x Capcom.

It's also been confirmed that the opening song will be Wind Wanderer, performed by Yoko Takahashi. If it's as good as the music we've heard for the game so far, then that'll be worth a listen.

Bahn was awesome in FV not quite as good as Akira from VF but they had a super powered Bahn in megamix, in any case great to see a more obscure character in there from the saturn days.

Cool, I never thought I'd ever see a Servbot in a positive news headline again. (Even though this game is still only confirmed for Japan)

Since PXZ has both X and Legends characters in it, Bad Box Art Mega Man also still has a chance. :P

It's like Capcom's trying to make their fans mad with all the Megaman Legends references.

Sonic was the main reason to own SSBB other than that it mostly sucked

@Reala Brawl IS a fun game but it was unfortunately more of the same and didn't really feel like a valuable investment of my time. While the 'Subspace' mode was an interesting expansion of the adventure mode from Melee, it didn't save Brawl from its stale versus mode and awful online connectivity. Over all I believe the Subspace mode should have been its own game altogether, leaving the developers to immserse themselves in a fresh idea that better suits the games selling point, the versus mode. This game does have some strong points like a stellar soundtrack and colorful character roster and plenty of modes to play, however, the games shortcomings may overshadow them.

@GuardianKing Check out Sonic Battle on the GBA. It's pretty rad. :)

Brawl is one of the best games in this generation. You all just suck at it.

And this game needs Sonic.

Is it possible to complain about Brawl? There's almost nothing wrong with it...

You shouldn't even be on this site if you don't like Brawl.

I never had any problems at all playing BRAWL online, except for this ONE person who had a crappy connection. Other than that, all the other people I've played against had no lag at all.

BRAWL is awesome regardless of what people say.

@GuardianKing Besides his broken Final Smash, nothing is wrong with Sonic

I still want to see Megaman Volnutt sprites. That....would be amazing.

Whilst this is great news of course, I think plenty of gamers (myself included of course) would also like to see the Servbots and Miss Tron in another 3DS game....one which Capcom canned for no reason

I would imagine Pacman would make it into the game (as well as SSBU); he's Namco's mascot and one of the most famous characters in the world.

Oh, and if Barry Burton is announced, I will squeal like a schoolgirl.

@Knuckles Perhaps with the new direction the Smash series is being taken his opinion may change and I put heavy emphasis on the 'may' part.

So about that Project X Zone... :)

@Teejay His Direction+Special is pretty broken. B is for homing atttack, down B a controllable spin dash, Up B is trampoline. Direction B is just a pain.
