Project X Zone 2 joins a list of intriguing 3DS games that are due early next year (December this year in Japan); in fact, there may be one too many time sink games in that window for most of us mere mortals to tackle, but that's a nice problem to have. The Monolith Soft-developed IP mashup follows on from a chaotic if slightly flawed original, and it'll be fascinating to see what improvements it can make.

In any case, the line-up and cast is undoubtedly promising. This time around some Nintendo IP is featuring, with Fire Emblem: Awakening and Monolith Soft's own Xenoblade Chronicles being included, while various fan-favourites from Bandai Namco, SEGA and Capcom are also joining the crew.

We expect insanity, and the 14-minute showcase below reinforces that expectation. It's in Japanese, but check it out for footage of many cast members, including some of the most recent arrivals.
