Broccoli/Nippon Ichi's Z/X Zillions of enemy X Cards Get New Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Trading card game already inspired 2014 TV anime about battles between different timelines

Broccoli and Nippon Ichi Software ended their "Akihabara Z/Xstream 2015 Spring" event on Sunday by announcing that Broccoli's trading card game Z/X Zillions of enemy X is inspiring a new anime project.

The story of the game is set in the not-so-distant future. Five "Black Points" suddenly appeared around the world as portals to parallel worlds. Immediately after, strange creatures began their invasion from these portals. These creatures are the inhabitants of five worlds — the same worlds in different timeframes. In order to ensure their own future timeframe survives, each of the five invasion forces battle to wipe the other future timeframes out. The key is one card-shaped device.

The Z/X Zillions of enemy X game already inspired a television last year. (Z/X is pronounced as Zex.) The game advertises itself as the "first free" trading card game system since a free deck is offered at meets held by card shops and events. PDF files are even posted online so people can print them out themselves. The card game has also inspired a PlayStation 3 game, an PC browser game, and a manga series in Shueisha's V Jump magazine. Crunchyroll streamed the first anime as it aired in Japan.
