Project X Zone (Project Cross Zone / プロジェクトクロスゾーン).
It is a relatively cheaply developed Strategy RPG,
made to make a fast profit to be distributed fairly between the three companies.
The thing that is NOT cheap though is paying all of those voice actors and actresses.
It seems to follow the usual 'Capcom vs' method series.
SEGA probably were asked to be a partner of it, but are not really keen toward it,
so Namco-Bandai (that previously worked with Capcom) stepped in to do a three parties game.
Its core gameplay probably will resemble of the Super Robot Wars series.
It would be out at the 11th of October 2012 with the price of 6280 Yens (including tax).
Its CERO rating has not yet been decided, but most likely it will be CERO:B (Above 12 years old),
considering the nature of the games in it and the game itself.
The characters are from the following.
Bio Hazard (Resident Evil), Devil May Cry, Vampire, Street Fighter, Rockman X, Dead Rising, and Makaimura / Hell Forest (Ghosts 'n Goblins）.
Sonic X... er, CyberBots. Heh. Heh. Heh. Devilotte.
Sakura Taisen / Sakura Wars, Virtua Fighter, and Space Channel 5.
Senjou no Valkyria 3 / Valkyria Chronicles 3, Shining Force EXA, End of Eternity (Resonance of Fate), Dynamite Deka, and Zombie Revenge.
Tekken, .hack, Xenosaga, Super Robot Wars OG, God Eater, and Walkyrie no Bouken / Walkyrie's Adventure.
Tales of Vesperia and Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Mugen Frontier.
Plus a couple of the game's original characters:
Its primary attraction seems to be all of those otaku oriented series and games that were included in it. The included games seem to be teen oriented, with most of them were rated CERO:B and above. CERO: A stuff including the Sonic the Hedgehog series (primary a CERO:A rated series) probably would not be in it.
It would be interesting nonetheless to see something like this:
Might as well, some of the characters of those games are too powerful to be put in a Strategy RPG.
Balancing them in a Strategy game might be a bit too tricky.
Anyway. With the introduction of CERO, it is hard for Rouge to look like this anymore:
The same goes for Amy and Cream:
And for a cutscene like this
"Have finally catch a glimpse, huh? My Darling."
Amy, what were you doing? And Sonic, what were you doing with those eyes?
Note: This is why they had a 'special note' on Amy's character animation sheet for the 2003~2004's Sonic X TV series. Asking the animators to be extra courteous with her 'feminity'.
As for CERO rating. Here is an illustration that joked about it:
The punchline of the illustration's joke is that the letters correspond to the bustline size (cup size) of the female characters. Though in reality, it actually corresponds on on how much clothing the female characters wore and/or what happened to them. That is why romance games tend to be rated CERO:C and above.
Or maybe it does indeed correspond to the bustline size?
Here are a couple of concept designs on Shahra from 2007's Sonic and the Secret Rings.
A game that was rated CERO:A of course.
Compare it to her final version:
And also, if something like this below appeared in the game, what would the game's rating be?
CERO:B? No, try CERO:C instead.
CERO: A = All ages.
CERO: B = Above 12 years old.
CERO: C = Above 15 years old.
CERO: D = Above 17 years old.
CERO: Z = Above 18 years old.
Phantasy Star Online 2 probably got rated as CERO:C due its 'Pervert Mode' a.k.a. Character Edit Mode.
As for Digimon X Sonic (デジモンクロスソニック).
Well, a Digimon voice actress (Noda Junko = V-mon/Veemon) did sang a couple of Sonic BackGround Music.
Kanemura Jun'ichi (Sonic's voice actor) himself voiced for Ryo in Digimon Tamers.
With a very Sonic-ish line when he entered the story as Justimon in the Runaway Digimon Express movie.
And of course, there is this puzzling fan art:
Still makes more sense though than 'Mimi Alstar' and 'Triangular' Mimi.
But jokes and parodies are supposed to be about putting things in unusual places.
Brave Heart still makes a nice song for almost any transformation / power up / battle scene though:
