The most recent images of Project X Zone, developed by Monolith Soft and Banpresto, showcases several meetings between characters from differing universes.

Flynn from Tales of Vesperia meets Princess Devilotte de Deathsatan IX from Cyberbots.

Morrigan, and her assets, and Chun-Li meet original characters Mii and Kogoro

Units in Project X Zone function as pairs, but it’s also possible to add specific solo units to summon in battle. Below, Valkyrie, from The Legend of the Valkyrie, asks to use Dante’s bathroom, and below that, another solo unit, Tron Bonne, summons her ever ready Servbots to the fray, which then transform into a larger Servbot.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Project X Zone, which features characters from Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai franchises, also features villains from these franchises. Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles and Vile from Megaman X, among others, are enemies in the upcoming strategy RPG. Below are images of these villains from their respective games.

Project X Zone releases in Japan on October 11. No NA release date has been announced yet, but this title, with it’s inclusion of multiple franchises and its developers’ lineage, may just make it the ultimate RPG crossover.

About Scott MacDonald

I joined Oprainfall in August 2012 as a writer and reporter. After I proved myself, I became Review Manager and handled all reviews for the site. I then branched out and took over all PR duties for Oprainfall. Now I keep us in touch with publishers, obtain codes for official reviews, schedule interviews, and tackle other assorted PR responsibilities. I'll play anything, but I view new releases with a cynical eye.




  • Wait, there’s a character called Mii in this game?  He doesn’t look like a Mii.

  • I’m hoping that this game gets released internationally. Sure, it contains a lot of characters I don’t recognize, but that didn’t stop Capcom from releasing Tatsunoko vs. Capcom in the West.
