As I'm sure a few of you remember, a couple years ago Bandai Namco and Monolith Soft released Project X Zone, the crossover SRPG starring characters from various Bandai Namco, Capcom, and SEGA games. Well Monolith Soft and BN are working together again and instead of making Baten Kaitos 3 they're giving us Project X Zone 2, this time with a little bit of Nintendo fan service.
So who do we have from Nintendo? Announced is Fiora from Xenoblade (who forms a team with KOS-MOS from Xenosaga), and Chrom & Lucina from Fire Emblem as their own team.
Will there be more Nintendo characters? Maybe, but these guys are advertised as guest characters, so it's possible that this is it.
You want to know who else shows up? Well ok then.
From Capcom we get characters like Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil, Phoenix Wright from Ace Attorney and June Lin Milliam from Star Gladiator joining the roster.
From SEGA we have Goro Majima from Yakuza, Hibana from Nightshade, and Segata Sanshiro from your favourite Sega Saturn ad.
Finally from Bandai Namco we have Natsu from Soul Calibur, Kazuya Mishima from Tekken, and Aty from Summon Night 3.
Of course the roster includes a lot of additional characters from the three main companies like Ryu (who I believe by law is supposed to appear in any Capcom crossover), Ulala from Space Channel 5, and Valkyrie from The Legend of Valkyrie will show up.
A demo is out on the eShop now, and I think they really improved the gameflow from the previous games. The turn phase is now like Fire Emblem, instead of every single unit having their own. The enemies also don't seem to be as HP heavy as they were before, but that could just be a demo thing. If you have a few minutes I encourage you to check it out.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
