Capcom, Namco, crossing over must be working out for you, because you decided to throw Bandai and Sega into the mix.
Project X Zone is another crossover game featuring characters from the franchises mentioned in my previous sentence. I can probably go over the plot with you. World crisis threatens the dimensions all the characters live in, and they all have to team up to defeat whatever world crisis is threatening them.
However, in past attempts, their efforts were marred.
Namco X Capcom – Horribly slow-paced gameplay. Everything else was cool though. Serious.
Cross Edge – Clunky and needlessly complicated game. EVERYTHING WAS COMPLICATED. I wondered just how the flyin’ fuck they went to the bathroom, what with all the menus and shit. And it was a grind-fest. YOU NEEDED A STRATEGY GUIDE PLUS ALL THE DLC JUST TO BEAT THIS GAME. UGH.
This game seems to have solved the problems marring both previous crossover attempts. See this trailer and judge for yourself.
And here’s some pictures I jacked from the internet. Because I care 🙂
And a partial list of the characters featured in the game:
Jill Valentine X Chris Redfield – Resident Evil
Ryu X Ken Masters – Street Fighter
Zephyr X Leanne (Reanbell) – End of Eternity/Resonance of Fate
Chun-Li X Morrigan – Street Fighter/Dark Stalkers
X x Zero – Mega Man X
Yuri Lowell X Estelle Sidos Heurassein – Tales of Vesperia
Dmitri X Dante – Dark Stalkers / Devil May Cry
Jin X Xiaoyu – Tekken (Namco is shipping them soooo hard nowadays.)
Those two people from some game where you drive tanks and kill people with moe moe kyun camera shots (Valkyria Chronicles III – LOL BOZZ DEAN EDIN COLAK THIS IS FOR YOU HAHAHAHAHA)
That one game with those characters that date and fight robots and shit in a past Tokyo (Sakura Taisen)
