The Capcom, Namco Bandai and Sega collaboration project have been revealed by Famitsu as Project X Zone (pronounced Project Cross Zone), a strategy RPG that features characters from all three companies for the Nintendo 3DS.
The characters will team up in pairs to face off in fighting scenarios. Check out the character list below:
Ryu & Ken (Street Fighter), X and Zero (Mega Man), Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry), Chris and Jill (Resident Evil)
Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro (Sakura Wars), Pai and Akira (Virtua Fighter), Kurt and Riela (Valkyria Chronicles), Ulala and Touma (Space Channel 5 and Shining Force EXA)
Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars), Jin and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken), Kos-Mos and T-elos (Xenosaga), Yurie and Estel (Tales of Vesperia), Kaito and Black Rose (.hack)
The idea for the game came up when staff over at Namco Bandai started discussing internally about a crossover game. Namco started off talks with Capcom and then later included Sega.
The character list is not final and will include hidden characters as well as additional characters. Each character will have their signature moves that fans have come to associate them with.
The game is planned for a 2012 release and is 50% complete. A trailer will be revealed at the end of the month.
