Watch the "Ultimate Cross Over" debut English trailer.

Project X Zone will launch on June 25 in North America and July 5 in Europe, Namco Bandai has confirmed. In North America, the game will have a limited edition. (We’re still trying to confirm if this is the case with Europe.)

The limited edition will be offered for standard price ($39.99) and include a mini-art book and poster featuring the characters and franchises represented in the game and a music CD featuring the game’s high tempo music.

The first set of English screenshots can be seen at the gallery. Watch the debut English trailer below.

The Ultimate Crossover Game
For the first time ever, characters from some of the most historic franchises in video game history come together in one epic adventure! Play as over 50 of your favorite characters from Namco Bandai, SEega, and Capcom and watch them interact in dream scenarios. Project X Zone is the ultimate strategy RPG that combines the greatest collection of characters ever seen in a video game!

The ancient treasure called the “Portalstone” has been stolen and a rift in time and space has allowed crossovers from various universes. The ambitions of various people, organizations and creatures have become intertwined, turning this incident into a great source of turmoil. The past, future, and even distant worlds from other dimensions have been drawn into what will become a long journey for our heroes.

    You guys just broke my heart again with that lead picture…

    Valkyria Chronicles 3— damn you, Sega. Damn you to hell!

    • Kurisu Makise

      This game breaks my heart, especially since it’s a cross-over of my 3 favourite third parties =( Alas, this game is one of the 3 killer apps for me to get a 3DS so I’ll see if Nintendo delivers at E3 and make my plans accordingly.

  • DarthBrian

    So the limited edition with all that extra stuff is only going to be $39.99?

    Ha ha, fuck you Atlus and your SMTIV is a $50 Premium Title bullshit. LMAO!

    • PrinceHeir

      lol so true.

      you see this Atus US?

      get a notebook and take some notes on it.

      You mean like Code of Princess and Etrian Odyssey 4 from Atlus?

      • $30632660

        People actually paid 50 bucks for Code of Princess lol?

      • $30632660

        People actually paid 50 bucks for Code of Princess lol?

        • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

          Code of Princess and Etrian Odyssey 4 costs $39.99 and both came with bonus art and select soundtrack.

    • Haku_Luvs_You

      That said, as good as this is (or at least I enjoyed it), I doubt it will hold a candle to SMT IV in terms of quality.

    • almostautumn

      A good game is worth its price, period.

  • PrinceHeir

    are you serious O___O

  • PrinceHeir

    okay i just made tons of pre order right now.

    pre ordered Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix just in case for future reference.

    Muramasa Rebirth Limited Edition, two versions of Dragon’s Crown(i might end up for PS3 version as the release date comes close)

    The Eyes of Bayonetta: Art Book & DVD which is coming on July 2013

    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers coming up next week along with Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks

    i STILL haven ‘t pre ordered Shin Megami Tensei IV and Project X Zone,

    already plan on not to buy Resident Evil Revelations, instead i’ll go with Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut. my brother wants The Last of US as well!!!!

    might buy Tales of Xillia Standard Edition along with Grace F sometime in the near future.

    but that Limited Edition is tempting!!!!

    i haven’t even listed all the blu ray anime’s i want this summer!!!

    guess i’ll cancel The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy Slipcased Edition since i already have the original print edition with the box and signed and all.

    soo many games O______O

    • almostautumn

      Mr.Moneybags over here :P

      I’ve been thinking on that Bayonetta kit also, as well as Soul Sacrifice or Muramasa. But that new Grasshopper title has me really wanting to pick up on of the KYMG art books also. Can only afford one of these though so… so I guess that means I hate you :)

      • PrinceHeir

        yeah Killer is Dead and JoJo i’ll buy them Day 1 ASAP :D

        and yes i want that KYMG!!!

        • almostautumn

          It really does look impressive, the both of them. But they’re hardly over 100 pages— I don’t know whether that is good or bad, but in regards to novels it seems terribly small :P

          • PrinceHeir

            shame it’s less than 100 pages : (

  • fireemblembeast

    W-woah, it’s the same price for LE?! HELL YES! Today is so damn amazing so far!

  • Pyrofrost

    Oh shit $39.99 for an LE, day one buy!

    Now it’s time to say random bad shit about Atlus and SMT-IV’s “premium” $49.99 release; even though they have given no details on the game’s English release. ‘Cause, ya know, that makes complete sense!

    Gosh, Morrigan, I sure hope it doesn’t get cold anytime soon. You might freeze to death. xD

    Add this to my list of upcoming games to buy. Looks like May-August is going to be rough this year too. >_>

  • DrForbidden

    Sigh. That headline picture just made me sad…

  • Kobracon

    Hmm…no voices, but hopes up for Jap dub since they put subtitles for the face cut-in attacks. Hopefully thats a sign. Not trying to be a Jap voice elitist but with a cast this big, its gonna be VERY hard to get decent voice actors for all the characters across the board…

    • Rafael Martines

      They already confirmed that there is no english voices, only japanese :) I really try to understand Namco :( why some games they keep the japanese voices and others they don’t :| Original audio should be mandatory in the games.

      And dat creepy explanation about the japanese actors contratct’s only allow theirs voices in Japan is really strange

  • Demitri Maximoff

    I cant wait to play as Demitri, Frank west and Akira
    This year is really driving me nuts =D

  • http://www.facebook.com/micheal.scott.315 Micheal Scott
