Back in 2013, Bandai Namco released Project X Zone on the 3DS. The RPG brought together characters from Capcom, Bandai Namco, and SEGA into one game. The title was well received amongst gamers. Project X Zone sold over 400,000 copies. Bandai Namco has officially announced that Project X Zone 2 is coming to Nintendo 3DS. The tactical RPG title is being developed by Monolith Software.
Project X Zone 2 will once again bring together characters from Capcom, SEGA, and Bandai Namco. No details on the story were released.

Bandai Namco is optimistic about the game. Herve Hoerdt Bandai Namco VP of IP Strategy EU believes that Project X Zone 2 can be a serious contender to be an appreciated tactical RPG. Hoerdt added that the game’s recognized characters and gameplay will appeal to players.
