Project X Zone 2: “Crossing Paths” Trailer, Release Date Change

The first promotional video for Project X Zone 2 that Banpresto have been working on finally hit the internet, in commemoration with a media blitz that Bandai Namco is pushing for their games as part of Japan Expo 2015 in Paris. Be sure to watch it! There isn’t much in the way of new content, but this is actually our first peek into the voice acting for the game. In addition, we get to see a lot of the attacks that the characters will be able to use in this game.

There’s a discrepancy between the Japanese trailer and the English trailer – some of the video content from the Japanese trailer (namely things like Adventure of the Valkyrie DLC, 3DS themes) weren’t present in the English trailer. The segment on the “Original Game Sound Edition” was also omitted from the English trailer. The game is coming out on November 12 in Japan, but the English trailer notes (from Bandai Namco Europe) an early 2016 release date. Odds are this could very well apply to North America, too, so let’s prepare ourselves.

You can check out both trailers after the break. We’ve also attached a gallery with select images based on the trailer’s Japanese version for your browsing, too. Remember that the roster is certainly not stopping here. Wish for your favorites!

…I still find it funny that the Yakuza team’s super attack is called “Ryu ga Gotoku.”

Project X Zone 2 E3 2015 Trailer; Ulala, Felicia, Valkyrie Confirmed in Separate Image

Bandai Namco Europe just uploaded a new trailer for Project X Zone 2 for E3 2015 promotional purposes. It’s the first glimpse of gameplay in motion for the game. It features two teams in action from each publisher. The trailer theme is a remix of the previous trailer’s background theme; looks like it will be the main musical theme for this game.

From Sega, it’s Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima from Yakuza, and Akira Yuki and Kage-Maru from Virtua Fighter. From Bandai Namco, it’s Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima from Tekken, and Yuri Lowell and Flynn Scifo from Tales of Vesperia. And from Capcom: Mega Man X and Zero from the Mega Man X series, and Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter. Attacks from each pair of characters can be seen in the trailer. The combat interface is different, and even returning teams have new attacks.

The thumbnail for the E3 trailer shows Project X Zone 2-styled art for Felicia from Capcom’s Darkstalkers, Valkyrie from Bandai Namco’s The Legend of Valkyrie, and Ulala from Sega’s Space Channel 5. Presumably they are all support characters; while there will probably be more teams that branch across publishing companies (like Strider Hiryu from Capcom and Hotsuma from Sega) there’s nothing quite yet to suggest that any of these three is a pair unit. These characters aren’t present in the trailer, but it’s confirmation of their presence nonetheless.

More Characters Announced For Project X Zone 2

The latest news on Project X Zone 2 has been announced in this week’s Famitsu as the magazine revealed newcomers and returning characters for the crossover strategy game.

  • SEGA
    • Sakura Wars:  Gemini Sunrise and Sakura Shinguji
    • Streets of Rage:  Axel Stone
  • Capcom
    • Ace Attorney:  Phoenix Wright and Maya Fey
    • Street Fighter:  Ryu and Ken
  • Namco
    • God Eater 2:  Nana Kazuki and Ciel Alencon
    • Summon Night 3:  Aty

With Gemini and Sakura back, that means all four Sakura Wars characters returned for the sequel. Newcomer Axel Stone is a nice inclusion. Streets of Rage characters do not have many cameo appearances. Sega certainly tried to revive the series over the years at least. Same can be said about Summon Night series, it’s a low profile franchise for Namco to use in crossovers.

Project X Zone 2 Announcement Leaked

It appears someone spilled the beans on an upcoming sequel for Project X Zone on 3DS ahead of the game’s official reveal. Italian website e-duesse posted an article detailing some of Bandai Namco’s upcoming games. The list included two new titles, Project X Zone 2: Brave New World and Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul. The article has since been edited to remove the two titles, but not before the information was posted on NeoGAF. The Saint Seiya game has already been officially confirmed, and it’s probably only a matter of time until the same is done for Project X Zone 2.
