PROJECT X ZONE Presents...Ultimate Cross Menagerie of a Whole Bunch of Heroes

When a trailer for a video game goes for 10 minutes you know you're in for something special. So lets break this down. For those that don't know this is a spiritual sequel to Namco X Capcom on the PS2. What made up that game is on display here but it's been taken to the next level by adding something very important to the mix. You can now customize your units. It looks as of right now that you can only add Solo units to an already existing team but it seems there's a lot more to it and we'll have all our answers before the release. This much you can count on.

Here's the thing. This game promises 200+ Characters and it seems that it won't fail to hold up to that number. You may be wondering who's repping what at this juncture. If you are then allow me to put you up on game.

While most of the cast we know about are recognizable names there are some cool semi-unknown characters. To give full disclosure on the 2 I'm geeking over are both from the SEGA camp. Bruno Delinger from Dynamite Deka/Die Hard Arcade and Rikiya Busujima from Zombie Revenge. Those games are some of my favorite beat-em-ups and to see them make the cut for the game is so awesome. All they gotta do for Team Sega is get Mary and Ricky from Alien Syndrome and I'll be good on that camp. Team NamcoBandai & Capcom have real diverse rosters as well. As long as they get some favorites and some unknowns to balance it out then we should have a group of characters we can be happy with.

I will leave you with this information. If you're even thinking about playing this game in the future then please pick up that 1st print run. Because it's filled up with some kick ass goodies. 

Not only do you get the game, you also get a World Guide that introduces you to all the characters and the soundtrack as well. So for what you pay for it will be well worth it if you make the investment into it. I'm going to have a blast waiting for this game and using #DiaryofaBlogWhore to keep you updated on the latest anything Project X Zone.

-Triple Da G.O.D!
