Over 25 Historic Game Franchises from Three Japanese Publishers Band Together for an Epic Strategy RPG Experience

SAN JOSE, Calif., (June 25, 2013) – Leading video games publisher and developer Namco Bandai Games America Inc. today released Project X Zone™ exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS™ system in North America . The epic crossover title brings together the fiercest and most popular legacy characters from Namco Bandai Games, CAPCOM, and SEGA®'s most beloved franchises to create the ultimate cross-over Strategy-RPG experience.

Developed by Namco Bandai Games Inc. and MONOLITH SOFT, Project X Zone features 200 characters including playable characters, NPCs and enemies from more than 25 historic game franchises by three of Japan's most prolific video game companies. In Project X Zone players will use a team of two characters known as a Pair Unit to explore the world within the game. An additional character known as a Solo Unit can be combined with the Pair Unit to assist in battles with a Solo Attack as well as augment the attacks available for players to execute. Throughout the game, epic battles are waiting to erupt at a moment's notice. Players will have to master an array of screen-busting moves including Solo Attacks, Support Attacks, Cross Hits, and Special Attacks in order to defeat a multitude of foes.

Project X Zone successfully combines beloved characters, strategic gameplay and an epic storyline into a groundbreaking video game experience,” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Namco Bandai Games America Inc. “The fast-paced tactical battles and sheer volume of fan service will delight any fan of Namco Bandai Games, CAPCOM, and SEGA.”

Project X Zone takes place in a world surrounded by a hidden chaos with shadows and evil lurking beneath the peaceful cover of everyday life. When a rift in time and space suddenly appears, a doorway to various universes is opened allowing both heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths. Players will be able to take control of a huge selection of paired heroes including favorites such as Jin and Xiaoyu (TEKKEN®), Zephyr and Leanne (Resonance of Fate), to X and Zero (Megaman® X) and discover the cause of the rift and stop evil from coming through and spreading into their world.

Project X Zone is currently available in stores with an ESRB rating of “T” for Teen at a MSRP of $39.99 and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for $34.99. For more information about Project X Zone or other Namco Bandai Games titles, please visit: http://www.namcobandaigames.com.
