Figured since there full pages where scanned it'd be better to make this it's own topic instead of keep posting stuff about it in the Game that doesn't deserve it's own thread.

Famitsu unveiled the crossover project Nintendo announced during Nintendo Direct. Titled Project Cross Zone, the upcoming 3DS game is a strategy RPG with characters from Namco, Capcom, and Sega. Yes, this is like Namco X Capcom, but this time both companies brought their top characters like Chris Redfield instead of the lead character from Resident Evil: Dead Aim.

Who the hell is Kurt and Reala and why the hell aren't they Alicia and Welkin?
From VC3 obviously.
And why the hell aren't they Alicia and Welkin?  When a home console franchise gets a handheld title, it's called a spinoff.  Why are there spinoff characters stealing the limelight from main characters?
Hibernating.

I guess this is the translation of the interview at the bottom of the scans

Capcom, Namco Bandai and Sega are teaming up for a mega crossover 3DS strategy RPG called Project X Zone (pronounced Project Cross Zone). So who came up with the idea for this collaboration?

In an interview in Weekly Famitsu, which has a first look at the game this week, Namco Bandai's Kensuke Tsukanaka, the game's producer, revealed that Namco Bandai got the talks started by approaching Capcom. Internally, Namco Bandai staff had discussed making a game that mixed characters, and they brought Capcom in on the discussions, and then Sega.

Also sitting in on the interview were Capcom's Tatsuya Kitabayashi and Sega's Yasushi Yamashita. Kitabayashi said that he and Kazuhiro Tsuchiya are overseeing the project on Capcom's side.

Regarding the game's name, they originally considered selecting something with all three companies' names, but this would end up being too long. Tsukanaka mentioned Namco x Capcom, a previous crossover strategy RPG involving two of the parties. If the new game were a sequel to that, it might have been possible to use the company names in the game, sais Tsukanaka. However, because it's a totally new title, and it's a "project that realizes a dream crossover," they decided on the Project X Zone name. (The reasoning doesn't make sense in Japanese either).

We already shared the currently confirmed cast of characters. See this story in case you missed it.

Each character has moves that fans should recognize. Ryu and Ken have their various Shoryuken and other fighting moves. X and Zero have such moves as X Buster and Z Saber. Ulala (who's said to be voiced by "herself") has a "Tension Blaster" move.

The character list is not final. There will be other characters besides the initial announcement, said Tsukanaka, including hidden characters.

Some of the characters may not appear to lend themselves well to strategy RPG style combat. They'll still fight, but using actions one might expect of them, explained Tsukanaka.

Famitsu does not have specifics on the game's combat system, only saying that in general, characters fight in teams -- Ryu with Ken, for instance, and Jill with Chris. However, there are some exceptions. The magazine promised combat details in a followup report.

We'll be getting a closer look at Project X Zone some time this month as Namco Bandai releases a first trailer. As for when we'll get some screenshots, Famitsu.com usually posts screens from its latest Weekly Famitsu issue on Thursdays, so check back tomorrow.

Project X Zone is currently 50% complete. A release is planned for 2012.

Looks interesting. It's interesting to see companies banding together when the going gets rough. Gotta love crossover titles.

The art direction reminds me of Osu!! Tatake!! Ouendan!! which was one of the DS best titles.
All of your Mugen Portrait needs may be found HERE.

I'd like to report two robots on the MFG forums: One is EXShadow. The other is Saikoro.
There should be a Saikoro plugin for Photoshop.

>home console franchise
>2/3 of the games are on handheld


It should be obvious, Japan actually got VC3 and they may have loved it.

I want real animations so people can easily make Mugen chars from the sprites instead of having to go through heavy editing like for NxC.

Some of this was covered in the Andriasang link but some of it is new.

A few more details about Project X Zone (or Project Cross Zone) come from an interview with Famitsu. Tatsuya Kitabayashi from Capcom explained Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine were selected from their side because Resident Evil: Revelations was on the Nintendo 3DS. Picking characters from the Shining series for Project X Zone was puzzling, Kensuke Tsukanaka from Namco Bandai said, but they settled on Shining Force since that has the biggest name recognition and selected characters from EXA because they felt they were the best fit. Cyrille and Toma from Shining Force EXA will represent the series. Yuri and Estelle from Tales of Vesperia were chosen to represent the Tales series because they’re older and closer in age to the other characters. Tsukanaka also said the character list is not final and there will be hidden characters as well.

Details about the battle system are unclear, but most characters are in pairs. Sanger Zonvolt from Super Robot Taisen fights solo and Ulala from Space Channel 5 is teamed up with Shining Force characters. Characters will combine their signature moves in Project X Zone. Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter do a Shinku Hadouken & EX Hadouken. Another move combines Ken’s Shoryuken with Ryu’s Metsu Hadouken. X and Zero from Mega Man X can use moves like X-Buster & Z-Saber and Raijingeki & Twin Slasher. Kurt and Riela can use an Anti-tank lance & Light of the Valkyria. KOS-MOS and T-elos from Xenosaga have attacks like STORM WALTZ and X BUSTER & S SAULT. Yuri and Estelle combine artes to make Savage Wolf Fury & Holy Light. Kite and BlackRose use Data Drain from the .hack series.

I bet they're just announcing Sanger's going solo so later into the game they can "surprise" everyone with a boss fight getting interrupted by Elsam/Ratsel while Trombe starts playing - it's just a matter of which boss music from which franchise will be considered iconic enough to get that treatment.

Sad about no mechas, but the screenshot with Sanger and the 2 ./hack characters makes me wonder if we'll see Devilotte fight (and how) along with her (co)pilots from Cyberbots, if that particular cast guess was correct.

I wouldn't want it any other way.
Jedah is pretty much confirmed since you can see Fetus of God in the Jill and Chris screenshots.

Hoping this will get translated into English. Monolith soft is probably going to work on this like NxC and OG Gaiden and I really enjoyed both those games. I am expecting the worst though since this game will probably have way too many licenses to bring it over for an overseas release despite many of the characters being more known than NxC(Who heard of Valkyrie and Wonder Momo anyways)

I don't see any of the games currently presented to have any sort of licensing issue.

It's Banpresto that's making this game btw. It even plays similar to their Endless Frontier series.
