[TGS 15] Project X Zone 2: Lucina/Chrom + Fiora/KOS-MOS revealed, demo announced, trailer, more

During the third day of the Tokyo Game Show 2015 (the first one the general public could attend), Bandai-Namco held a special stage show for Project X Zone 2: Brave New World. Of course, the publisher had some surprises up its sleeve, including some brand new characters which were revealed live during the stage show.

Project X Zone 2Those characters are a bit surprising, since three of them are not from a SEGA, Bandai-Namco or Capcom series… but Nintendo’s! They are:

  • Lucina (voiced by Yuu Kobayashi), from Fire Emblem Awakening [Pair Unit]
  • Chrom (voiced by Tomokazu Sugita), from Fire Emblem Awakening [Pair Unit]
  • Fiora (voiced by Eri Nakao), from Xenoblade Chronicles [Pair Unit]
  • KOS-MOS (voiced by Mariko Suzuki), from Xenosaga [Pair Unit]

While KOS-MOS isn’t too surprising (Xenosaga is a Bandai-Namco IP), Lucina and Chrom are Nintendo characters, so their presence in the game is a surprising (but welcome) addition. As for Fiora, she’s from Xenoblade Chronicles, a game which was developed by Monolith Software… which happens to be the studio behind the two Project X Zone games (it’s a different team than the one from Xenoblade Chronicles, though!).

Following the stage show, Bandai-Namco uploaded a trailer for the new characters:

The official website was also updated with some artworks and screenshots:

Finally, it was announced that Project X Zone 2: Brave New World would get a demo ahead of its launch in Japan. More details will be announced at a later date, but in the mean time, here’s some screenshots:

It looks like this time around, there will only be one demo (instead of two, like the first Project X Zone).

Project X Zone 2: Brave New World (3DS) comes out on November 11th in Japan, February 16th in North America, and February 19th in Europe.

    Did we already know Dimitri and Morrigan were still in the game? I don’t remember ever seeing their splash art. Looks like Chrom finally gets his due, so awesome.
