Namco Bandai has released a demo for Project x Zone on the EU eshop. The demo is called Lethal Surprise and gives players a chance to use characters from titles such as Cyberbots, Sakura Wars, Valkyrie Chronicles, and Space Channel 5. Also appearing in the demo is a villain from the Sakura War series Ayame. The characters seem surprised that she has yet again returned to confront them; shortly after she summons several monsters to attack your team.
Other characters appear to be playable alongside the ones introduced in the demo, such as Ken from Street Fighter and Lindow from God Eater Burst.
Project X Zone is tactical RPG developed by Banpresto and Monolith Soft, and published by Namco Bandai. It features characters from many different games made by companies like Capcom, Sega, Namco Bandai, and Monolith Soft. Characters like Ryu, Megaman X, Alisa Bosconovitch, Ulala and more can be paired up with each other to battle various enemies and bosses. Much like Endless Frontier, the gameplay is fast paced and flashy, with a plethora of special attacks showing off a character’s various abilities, as well as some fancy poses before finishing an enemy off.
Project x Zone is set to be released for the 3DS June 25th in North America and July 5th in Europe. There is currently no word yet on whether North America will get a demo or not, so keep an eye out for any possible announcement on that from Namco Bandai.
