Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine and website revealed more of the character lineup in Project X Zone (pronounced Project Cross Zone), a simulation role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS system, featuring franchises from CAPCOM, Sega, and Namco Bandai Games.
The male protagonist Kogorō Tenzai (voiced by Toshihiko Seki) is officially a private detective but is actually a descendant of the "Tenzai-ryū" ninja clan that dates back to Japan's "Warring States" period. He now takes on assignments as a "ninja-for-hire." He uses the Tenzai-ryū heirloom blade "Nyoraitō", the huge "Sharinken" strapped to his back, and the "Hassōjin" blades hidden in both feet.
Heroine Mii Kōryūji (voiced by Yukari Tamura) is the daughter of the Kōryūji zaibatsu and a high school cheerleader. Her family has secretly influenced historical events behind-the-scenes since the Warring States period. Mii herself is bright with something of a quick temper. She has been trained as a fighting monk from a young age. She carries the rifle "Dragon Jewel," the sawed-off pistol "Purple Pot," and the "Tiger Heals" guns in her boot heels.
Famitsu also revealed the characters Arthur from Ghosts and Goblins, Devilotte de Deathsatan IX from Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness, Imca from Valkyria Chronicles III, Rikiya Busujima from Zombie Revenge and Flynn Scifo from Tales of Vesperia.
Famitsu previously revealed that the character roster includes Morrigan Aensland and Hsien-Ko (Lei- Lei) from the Darkstalkers, Frank West from Dead Rising, Chun-Li from Street Fighter, Erica Fontaine and Gemini Sunrise from Sega's Sakura Taisen, Zephyr and Leanne/Reanbell from Resonance of Fate (End of Eternity), Bruno Delinger from Dynamite Deka (Die Hard Arcade in English-speaking regions), Valkyrie from Namco's Valkyrie no Densetsu, and Alisa Ilinichina Amiella and Soma Schicksal from God Eater.
Kensuke Tsukanaka is producing this game at Monolith Soft for an October 11 release.
