Capcom, Namco, Sega reveal Project X Zone

Capcom, Namco Bandai and Sega are collaborating on Project X Zone, a strategy RPG for 3DS featuring characters from IP owned by three of the biggest Japanese publishers.

This week's Famitsu (via Andriasang) contains the first details about the collaboration, pronounced Project Cross Zone in a nod, we presume, to Capcom-Namco crossover Street Fighter X Tekken.

Representing Capcom are Street Fighter's Ryu and Ken; X and Zero from Mega Man; Demitri from Darkstalkers; Dante from Devil May Cry; and Resident Evil's Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine.

On the Sega side are Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro from Sakura Wars; Pai and Akira from Virtua Fighter; Kurt and Rela from Valkyria Chronicles; and Space Channel 5's Ulala and Touma.

Finally, Namco Bandai's characters include Sanger Somvold from Super Robot Wars, Jin and Ling Xiaoyu from Tekken, Xenosaga's Kos-Mos and T-elos, Yurie and Estel from Tales Of Vesperia, and Kaito and Black Rose from .Hack.

That's your lot for now, though Famitsu does say a trailer is due later this month.
