Project × Zone 2 (プロジェクト クロスゾーン2:ブレイブニューワールド Purojekuto Kurosu Zōn 2: Bureibu Nyū Wārudo?, Pronounced Project Cross Zone 2 Brave New World) is a tactical role-playing crossover game developed by Bandai Namco Games. Released exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS, the game is a sequel to Project × Zone and part of Namco's X series of crossover games. Although the game is primarily a crossover between Capcom, Namco and Sega as with the previous installment, characters from Nintendo's Fire Emblem: Awakening and Xenoblade Chronicles also make an appearance.[1] The game was released on November 12, 2015 in Japan, February 16, 2016 in North America and released February 19, 2016 in Europe.

Gameplay Edit

Like its predecessor, Project × Zone 2 is a tactical role-playing game in which players strategically maneuver their characters across a field to battle with the enemy. Characters are paired up into "Pair Units", with "Solo Units" consisting of a single character able to assist them when linked together. In battle, players use well-timed attacks and combos to do as much damage to the opponent as possible before their turn ends.

CharactersEdit

The game features pairs of characters from all three participating companies (Capcom, Namco and Sega), as well as solo characters who can provide assist attacks during combat. Making an appearance for the first time are Nintendo characters; Chrom and Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening and Fiora[2] and Metal Face from Xenoblade Chronicles. The game has also an original character, Chizuru Urashima (voiced by Mariko Kouda).[3]

Development Edit

On April 8, 2015, Japanese game magazine Famitsu launched a teaser website with a countdown that would expire in five days, revealing a secret project from Bandai Namco Entertainment. Before its expiration, Project × Zone 2 was announced early to attendees of Bandai Namco's "Level Up" press event in Milan, Italy on April 10, which was prematurely posted on Italian news website E-duesse before being retracted.

The game was officially revealed to the public three days later. It was stated in an interview that the game would address the criticisms of its predecessor (such as the story) and that there would be some "surprise" announcements, which later turned out to be the inclusion of Nintendo characters.[4] The game was originally going to have a simultaneous worldwide release, but the North American and European releases were later delayed to early 2016.

SequelEdit

In an February 2016 interview, Kensuke Tsukanaka stated that he would like to continue the series.[5]

Former Capcom member Hideki Kamiya stated that he was approached about having Platinum Games and Sega character Bayonetta included in Project × Zone 2, to which he refused as he wanted Bayonetta and Dante to meet "on his own terms". He later stated that he regretted this decision, due to realizing how the fans would have loved the two interacting, and that if there is a Project × Zone 3 he would be all for Bayonetta's inclusion.[6]
