Project X Zone - The Namco X Capcom sequel

I think you all heard about this Japanese-only RPG/Strategy game called Namco X Capcom for the PS2 which had a HUGE cast of characters from many series duking it out to save the universe.

Well, guess what? Since Monolith Soft is owned by Nintendo, the game's getting a sequel on the 3DS except now this time Sega is joining the fray. And we have a new ensemble of characters:

Capcom

Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter

X and Zero from Mega Man X

Demitri and Dante from Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry

Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine from Resident Evil

Sega

Sakura Shinguji and Ichigo Ogami from Sakura Wars

Akira Yuki and Pai Chan from Virtua Fighter

Kurt and Riela from Valkyria Chronicles 3

Cyrille and Toma and Ulala from Shining Force EXA and Space Channel 5

Namco Bandai

Sanger from Super Robot Taisen OG

Jin and Xiaoyu from Tekken

KOS-MOS and T-elos from Xenosaga

Yuri and Estelle from Tales of Vesperia (holy freaking crap, Yuri Badass Lowell on my 3DS)

Kite and BlackRose from .hack

Discuss, and make some silly internet operation to bring this over here.

Fuck; beaten. (I was making this very thread.)

Though you do bring up a good point as to whether or not Monolith Soft is going to let Reiji, Xiaomu, and all the rest (from the EF games) back into this one (would be amusing to see Sengar's reaction to a miniaturized Gespy running around).

Also: A better source....

Ninja Edit: Also I'm more amused to see Ogami and Sakura in action again, in what? Seven years.

Fake Edit: Although Kurt and Riela have guaranteed that this game's not making it out of Japan.

Double Edit: And some of the reasons behind the choices made....

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I liked Namco X Capcom and Endless Frontier, so color me excited, especially with the cast already mentioned.

...oh wait, it's on the 3DS? Guess I got some things to look up.

With fighting game mechanics for combat, yes.

I hate cross-overs, and a strategy RPG mashup isn't doing much for me.... till I saw them screenies.  Game looks pretty enough, but do you think we'll see it here?  *shrug*  It'd still take good reviews if it did.

I too hate cross-universe titles.... even when my beloved Etna makes a cameo in an NIS release it bothers me.... and I love Etna.....

As for anything that has to do with capcom, well.... I think the only thing that could excite me now would be another breath of fire.... yes I would love a breath of fire.... heck, after I bought the game i'd even dump another title or two's worth into all the DLC.... I actually had a dream that the big Namco x Capcom x Sega revelation was a new breath of fire..... I was gonna post here about it but my computer decided to take some time off lately....

No sign of Reiji & Xiaomu yet...

It's tradition!

IIRC, Namco Bandai is handling most of this game, so it'd be in there hands if it comes here.  In other words; it won't be coming here. :P

.....

I almost did an etna tattoo on myself but I opted for Rei Ayaname and a moogle instead..... I can't reach any  more of my body parts appropriately to do etna, but she will still make it to skin someday... I just need to find an artist who I feel will really do her justice :)..... the alternative plan if I become impatient is a prinny next to my moogle-LoL

I'm hoping for more Sakura Wars characters especially Subaru from SW5.

Ohhh my favorite trap.
