|Project X Zone Headed To Europe, North America Courtesy Of Namco BandaiThis one's surprising, based on all of the licensing involved.01.21.13 - 12:31 PM
I'll be honest, I'd pegged the Namco Bandai/Sega/Capcom crossover project Project X Zone
dead in the water for localization, considering all of the sticky licensing situations. 3DS owners will be happy to know that the 3DS Strategy-RPG/Fighter hybrid will be released in Summer 2013. The title features characters from some very popular series, including Tales of...
, and Street Fighter
, amongst many others.
While IGN's initial post was a bit light on details, tweets from both the official Namco Bandai UK account and Namco Bandai USA community manager Rich Bantegui corroborate the post.

Thanks to reader @MrRandom28 via Twitter for letting us know about the official EU announcement tweet.
Update (12:55PM): Namco Bandai Games America has sent out an official press release confirming the announcement. Included was also the following quote from Marketing VP Carlson Choi: "Project X Zone is the first title to ever combine such a large cast of characters from a varied list of game franchises into one grand adventure. Developing a cohesive game and storyline to encompass all of these great characters and their battle-styles was a huge challenge that has paid off greatly with the creation of a truly unique and groundbreaking gaming experience."
