This just in (Or not) – Project X Zone announced for North America

Project-X-Zone

 

Project X (Cross) Zone (プロジェクト クロスゾーン) could have been one of those awesome games staring the greatest characters of not only one, not two, but three game brands (Namco Bandai Games, Capcom, and Sega) all coming together in an epic crossover tactical role-playing adventure for the Nintendo 3DS – stuck in the home of its origin Japan. However the powers that be achieved greater wisdom and decided to share this gem with the entire world: Joy! Now there isn’t much info on the story or details of this title (or rather I can’t translated the info that is available) but after watching some youtube vids on the game and knowing some of the cast we get to play as I still want Project X Zone regardless – and I bet you all will too. Stay tune for further info.

 

 

 

 

Game Gifts of 2012 – Street Fighter X Mega Man

Street-Fighter-X-MegaMan

 

Ok, now this one Game Gift is a bit of a cheat as I’ve never played it before – however I have a good feeling it will do just fine: Street Fighter X Mega Man. To coincide with the upcoming 25th anniversary of everyone’s favorite Blue Bomber, Capcom and a rather inventive gentleman by the name of Seow Zong Hui is bring to the masses this new adventure. Yes this is real thing, and unlike that Streets of Rage Remake, this pie in the sky platformer has Capcom’s full blessing so there won’t be any big corporate buzz kill this time. Set still in the future, I guess, Mega Man finally locks down Wily and his robot masters. However a robots work is never done as now the world strongest Street Fighters want to their mettle on his metal. And that’s pretty much it: MegaMan goes to a Street Fighter’s stage, fights their minions (didn’t know they had minions), and if he survives challenge them in a 1-on-1 brawl. Now you’re probably thinking this concept isn’t new (the Capcom vs series, most of them anyway); but this time around MegaMan has the homefield advantage as everything is in glorious 8-bit nostalgia and subjected to MegaMan reality. Even to the point where once MegaMan defeats them he gets their power, freaken sweet. The best thing of all people, its free 100%. Sure it’s only available on the PC but that’s a small price to pay for the most epic non-rap battle in history, and thus a perfect gift for Christmas. The download will be available at Capcom Unity on December 17th.
