SRPG 'Project X Zone' is Namco, Sega, and Capcom's 3DS crossover

If you assumed the Namco, Capcom, and Sega crossover 3DS project would be some kind of strategy RPG, you assumed correctly. Project X Zone is not an official follow-up to 2006's Namco X Capcom for PS2, but the idea of a crossover SRPG is similar – and this time, of course, Namco is bringing Sega characters into the mix. The name "Project X Zone" was chosen because using the company names would have implied a sequel to Namco X Capcom, producer Kensuke Tsukanaka told Famitsu.

Pairs of characters team up to battle using their signature fighting styles, including Ryu and Ken, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, Jin and Xiaoyu, and ... Space Channel 5's Ulala and Shining Force EXA's Toma? Specific details of the combat system have yet to be revealed, as all we know at this point is from Famitsu leaks. The game is due in Japan this year.
