'Project X Zone' for the Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo 3DS will soon be getting a new title that has not one, but three big Japanese game companies standing behind it.

Developed by Monolith Soft and Banpresto, Project X Zone will feature more than 50 playable characters from 29 historic game franchises by three of Japan's most respected video game companies: SEGA, Capcom, and Namco Bandai.  Players of the game will use a team of two characters, known as a Pair Unit, to explore the game world.  An additional character, known as a Solo Unit, can be combined with the Pair Unit to assist in battles with Solo Attacks as well as augment the attacks available for players to execute.

Throughout the game, battles are waiting to erupt at a moment's notice.  Players will have to master an array of screen-busting moves including solo and support attacks, cross hits, and finishing moves in order to defeat a multitude of foes. 

Project X Zone takes place in a world surrounded by a hidden chaos with shadows and evil lurking beneath the peaceful cover of everyday life.  When a rift in time and space suddenly appears, a doorway to various universes is opened allowing both heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths.  Players will be able to take control of a huge selection of paired heroes including favorites such as Jin and Xiaoyu (Tekken), Toma and Cyrille (Shining Force EXA), abd X and Zero (Mega Man X) to discover the cause of the rift and stop evil from coming through and spreading into the world.

According to Namco Bandai, this game is expected to release sometime during the summer of 2013.
