More details on the Capcom-Namco-Sega mash-up: sadly not as pants-shittingly terrifying as the teaser lead us to believe.
Look, it’s not like I really expected this thing to be a white-knuckle survival horror game… but maybe I was hoping just the littlest bit. No, the mysterious 3DS collaboration between Capcom, Namco and Sega is a strategy-RPG called Project X Zone. According to Famitsu, the game is about 50% completed, aiming for a 2012 release in Japan. Even though the game is being billed as a strategy-RPG, I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t still look a hell of a lot like a Marvel vs Capcom-style tournament fighter:
Combo counters, flashy moves and life-meters all seem to hint that at least a little inspiration was taken from the cross-over beat-’em-ups that paved the way for this weird new mash-up.
