So on my site, I’ve been doing reoccurring coverage of Project X Zone, an upcoming game by Monolift Soft and Banpresto. The title is a tactical RPG with fighting game elements and a large number of established characters from different Namco Bandai, SEGA, and Capcom franchises. It’s been picking up some steam for the crossover choices and the cool looking 2D sprites. But something has been troubling my thoughts whenever this game is mentioned, and that is a number of memories from its precursor… memories of a dreadful and repetitive nature.
Before I go much further, let me establish that I wish nothing but the best for the game, which hits Japanese stores tomorrow. I hope it sells well and I hope people find fun in it. I enjoy crossover games just to see the humorous character dynamics and relationships being formed, as well as the licensed soundtrack which ends up being a crockpot of delicious synth covers. I just feel it’s my responsibility to inform people who really want this game localized, that it may not turn out to be the bee’s knees in glorious 3Ds.
