What do Capcom, Sega, Bandai-Namco, and Nintendo all have in common? They all lend characters from some of their most popular franchises to team up in the mega-crossover, Project X Zone 2.

[Spoiler Warning: One of these character portraits—taken from the Project X Zone 2 official site—is basically a spoiler for their parent game (which came out in 2010). You have been warned.]
