The game has a fan translation in English, released in 2010. Namco × Capcom is the first game in Namco's × series of crossover games. Character art was done by Takuji Kawano, of Soul Calibur fame.

Namco X Capcom Opening

Intro

The year is 20XX (sometime in the twenty-first century), and the game is driven by the characters Arisu Reiji and Xiaomu (original characters created specifically for this game). The two of them work for a special unit called Shinra, and they are tasked with investigating spirit and otherworldly disturbances. They are initially investigating a strange "sleeping sickness" in the Shibuya area of Japan, when it becomes apparent that something much larger is at stake. Characters, both good and evil, from other times and other worlds begin appearing in Japan in the year 20XX.

Gameplay Edit

Namco × Capcom is a hybrid of an action-RPG and a strategy-RPG. Movement is done on a square grid with turns being determined by figuring out which character has the highest AP. On the player's turn, he/she can move the character into position and choose to attack an enemy.

At this point, the game switches into the action-RPG portion. The player's character has a number of "Branches" they can use. Each direction on the directional pad combined with the circle button will perform an attack. Each attack uses up 1 branch. If the player can perform a certain number of Aerial Chains (hitting the enemy in mid-air), bonuses may be gained, such as items, super meter, extra damage, or more branches to use in the turn. Bonuses other than items are converted into extra Experience Points at the end of an attack sequence. Upon filling up the character's Special Gauge they can use the Triangle button to perform a special attack. They will also be able to select a Multiple Assault attack if their units on the board meet the conditions. Defense also puts the player in the action-RPG mode, this time blocking to reduce the enemy's damage. Successfully blocking attacks will also increase the amount of AP the player's unit has.

There are 50 levels total (45 normal and 5 prologue) and the game could take from around 70-100 hours to complete.

Legacy Edit

Three years after Namco X Capcom's release, the next game in the X series, Cross Edge, was released in 2008 and it featured characters from Namco, Capcom, Nippon Ichi Software and Gust Corporation. Later after that, two crossover fighting games between Capcom's Street Fighter and Namco's Tekken series were announced: Street Fighter X Tekken (developed by Capcom) and Tekken X Street Fighter (developed by Namco), the former being released in 2012.

Namco would later create a spiritual sequel for this game, Project × Zone, a crossover of characters not only from Namco and Capcom but now also Sega, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Unlike Namco X Capcom, it was released overseas; first in Japan in 2012 and later in North America, Europe, and Australia in 2013.

A sequel, Project × Zone 2, is soon to be released. Although it is still primarily a crossover between the three aforementioned companies, characters from Nintendo joined the cast for the first time; in this case, it was two characters from Nintendo's Fire Emblem: Awakening and one from Xenoblade Chronicles.
