Say you have several groups of good friends. Work friends, neighborhood friends, online friends; each group great in their own way. You throw a shindig to get them all together. Why? It doesn’t matter, as long as everybody gets together and has a good time. That’s Project X Zone 2.
Top GIF from the Japanese version of the game, because I stole it from Richard.
It’s also the original Project X Zone, for that matter. The 2012 tactical role-playing game brought together characters from Namco Bandai, Sega and Capcom in a flashy, funny, almost completely nonsensical battle for the fate of all realities. I’m guessing the same thing is happening in the sequel? I’m several hours into today’s 3DS release and I’ve no idea. And I don’t really care. I just want to see three generations of Tekken’s Mishima clan arguing about which one of them is going to kill the other two while Morrigan from Darkstalkers summons Phoenix Wright to attack demons.
