Crossovers Catch Up
A lot has happened in the world of video games since our last update, so it’s time to play catch up!
Project X Zone
This crossover tactical RPG for the 3DS was revealed to feature characters from Sega, Namco, and Capcom. From the Mega Man series, Mega Man X and Zero are the only currently announced main characters in the game. While it’s set to release October 11, 2012, there are no apparent plans to localize it outside of Japan as of this post.
Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale
Right before E3 2012, Sony showed off its own crossover fighting game, which includes characters not only from Sony franchises, but also third party companies. Playable characters from Namco and 2K have already been revealed, but it’s currently unknown if Capcom will be involved at all. Interestingly enough, Seth Killian, a former community manager at Capcom, announced that he had joined the development team in July 2012. The game is being created by SuperBot Entertainment and will be released around the world in October 2012.
Sonic & Mega Man: When World Collide
This ain’t no game! Archie Comics announced a 12 part comic series which will feature a crossover between the worlds of Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. While it isn’t a video game, it is an official project that was agreed upon by Sega and Capcom. Expect the series to be published in 2013.
