Project X Zone 2 – Review

Since the dawn of fiction, there has been fan fiction. That ever expanding collection of stories written by the fanliest of fans who seek to insert themselves within the worlds imagined by  others. Be they quirky romps through unexplored realms, tales of woe relived through another’s eyes or discernibly more sordid tales, there is something for all within this bounty of narrative. However, there exists yet a another form of story, a culmination of the official and the not, an unholy fusion of canon and desire; the crossover. Licenced out the wazoo and born from dreams of cross promotional paychecks, these melting pots of fandom answer as many questions as they raise, as characters team up, beat down and chill out all across the collective dreamscape. Though sometimes, as it would coincidentally turn out, the universes at large may just need a team of inter-dimensional champions to best a series of equally inter-dimensional foes. Project X Zone; yet another foray into the series hopping exploits of Capcom, a company that just L-O-V-E loves mixing and matching properties. You’ve got …

That’s the official release date for Project X Zone 2: Brave New World across Australia and New Zealand on the Nintendo 3DS, and the day you’ll be ringing your boss pretending to be sick so that you can get the day all to yourself. Sure, you have plenty of time to play …

Sega’s Promotional Character Segata Sanshiro Revealed For Project X Zone 2 

Here’s a real Japanese pop culture knowledge test, one that I failed, and one that I think will put a smile on your face regardless of whether or not you’re aware of this particular character. In Japan, from 1997 to 1998, there was this television marketing gimmick organised by Sega to advertise their powerful new product of the time; the Sega Saturn. Like many advertising campaigns throughout history, this particular Sega Saturn line of comedic commercials featured a legendary, fictional, Judo master that went by the name Segata Sanshiro who, for that two year period, was essentially the face of the Sega Saturn. This hard-core fighter would travel the land, literally punishing those who would not play the Sega Saturn, as if it was by law. This video game vigilante was seen as one hell of force to be reckoned with, and seemingly the perfect promotional character for the Sega Saturn; a system that, apparently, demanded to be enjoyed. It’s now 2015, and there’s a video game sequel on the way called Project X Zone …
