Silly Combos and Fan Service Galore – Project X Zone heading west

A report on Siliconera revealed, and quickly confirmed, that Monolith developed SEGA, Namco Bandai and Capcom mashup Project X Zone will be heading west this summer, courtesy of Namco Bandai themselves.

Katsuhiro Harada told us that he was pushing for the localisation late last year, it appears he got through to his superiors. We imagine that he simply sat there, ‘staring’ at them through his trademark shades, until they said yes. They then had a round of tequila shots and punched each other in the face while shouting ‘excellent!’

That stare could save marriages, cure illness, solve diplomatic disputes. Anything.

The game is a turn based strategy, similar to the Advance Wars and Fire Emblem games, that replaces automatic combat cinematics with player controller multi-character scrap scenes. Add to this characters riped from Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Mega Man, God Eater Burst, Valkyria Chronicles, Tekken, Xenosaga, Tales of Vesperia and a lot more besides.

We’ll just put it this way. Why wouldn’t you want a game that looks like this…
