To be fair I only pulled in very limited quantities from new companies, and only their most well known characters (slight exception for hypothetical DLC)

I did give Nintendo as much of a boost as possible as well as added new IPs from the other base 3

Eh, I was talking a bit more in general. I've seen rosters that just go utterly ****ing nuts with new companies after new companies, but then play it really safe with the already-involved ones, which I simply do not vibe with

Bro I seen one on a wiki that even pulled in western companies and... cartoons?? Wut?

the one I saw that included Genshin Impact (only 2 characters) on I think Fantendo, along with Konami, Square Enix and SNK was decent though, albeit a bit packed

‘‘Twas actually Game Ideas Wiki, here ya go

oh crap. I should also add a Dark Souls boss to my roster probably

That's for pointing that out, I've amended the errors. Chrono Cross has never released in Europe even the PSOne Classic digital edition so I never played it.

I originally thought of adding Dragon Quest characters but the rights to the Dragon Quest series are owned by multiple parties. I chose the most popular Eidos characters to be part of the roster and I selected Psychic Force by Taito as it's the kind of obscure franchise that would work with Project X Zone just like Star Gladiator did. Lufia, just like Dragon Quest, has ownership rights by multiple parties which is why it didn't make the cut and the Space Invaders monster is another Sega Sanshiro like character.

Square Enix would be the perfect addition for Project X Zone 3 assuming it ever happens and that Square Enix are willing to loan their characters.

Yeah, it would. But Eidos assets were transferred to Square Enix Europe sometime after the merger, so nowadays, those characters go by the Square Enix branding.

TBH I was never a big fan of just piling new companies onto new companies with PxZ3 concepts - the companies that are already involved still have so much untapped potential that IMO it almost feels like a bit of a waste to focus on continuing to add a bajillion guest companies over further exploring the ones that are already in: all 4 of which still have a pretty ****ing big library of good characters to pull from. I mean, technically speaking, Nintendo haven't even gotten the "full" treatment yet!
Tbf, I don't think Nintendo would even get any characters if it wasn't for Intelligent Systems and Monolith Soft. Nintendo is not a big fan of lending their properties to other companies and I can't really see them going overboard with characters like Link and Samus.

I tried to show a little restraint with my roster. I kept my unit roster down to 40 per (solo and pair). There's definitely a tad bit of personal bias thrown in here, but I kept to the rule of "humanoids only." I wanted to balance out the original three companies as much as possible, give a small boost to Nintendo, and added in minimal representation for the four companies I added (which my only rule was that they had to be Japanese companies.) The companies I added were SNK, Konami, Tecmo Koei, and Square Enix.

Without further ado, the roster.

5. Morrigan Aensland & Felicia (Darkstalkers)
6. Jill Valentine & Regina (Resident Evil/Dino Crisis)
7. Akira Kazama & Sakura Kasugano (Rival Schools/Street Fighter)

Solo Units
1. Captain Commando (Captain Commando)
2. Edward Falcon (Power Stone)
3. Arthur (Ghouls 'N' Ghosts)
4. Katt (Breath of Fire)
5. Vergil (Devil May Cry)
6. Tron Bonne & Servbots (Mega Man Legends)

7. Isaac & Alis Landale (Golden Sun/Phantasy Star) - Nintendo/SEGA; Theme: Sword & Sorcery Combo Characters from forgotten works

Tomorrow, if ya'll are interested, I actually have musical selections picked out for them all when selected. My goal when building this roster was to give it an update with some characters unique from each previous game, to provide as many potential character interactions as possible, and to "update" series that have had new releases since PXZ2 in some cases. I really would've liked to include some characters from western games and companies, as well as bring Klonoa back into the series, but the "humanoids only" rule kept that from happening. Fun note, I even dragged out a pair from Namco x Capcom for a little nostalgia.

Tales' roster got shifted to include more of it's series, Resonance of Fate, being a one-off game that hasn't been re-released in years, got it's three characters axed down to just one. Many cuts had to be made, but I think I did a decent job.

Yeah, I'll admit there's a little Sakura Wars bias, but I had a new waifu to include, and there's a story reason in Sakura Wars 2020 that I made those two a pair; bite me! (softly uwu) I couldn't cut anyone since I like all of those characters, and in this hypothetical world there's an HD re-release of the series in the west.

Link talks through a fairy.

Oh, and I really wanted to include Selvaria Bles, but she can just be an enemy unit again. Or maybe a special New Game+ reward? Idk.

Characters I want to see in a sequel part 2: Bandai-Namco

  • Taizo Hori from Dig Dug as a Solo Unit. This is... mostly for fun. I think his Namco x Capcom incarnation was hilarious.
  • Maybe another Tekken character aside from the usual suspects? I think Shaheen could be an interesting addition that can be initially a Rival Unit.
  • New Tales characters. I'd keep Yuri but make the new Pair Unit from Berseria: Velvet Crowe & Laphicet.
  • Siegfried & Mitsurugi from Souls series as a Pair Unit. Natsu is cool but I think her franchise can use a bit more characters.
  • Louis Amamiya & Mia Karnstein from Code Vein. Have them interact with Demitri.
  • An iDOLM@STER character as a Solo Unit. Not sure how they'll handle it but there were a few in Granblue Fantasy so it's not impossible.
  • A retro throwback character. Either bring back Wonder Momo or add Prince Paco from Marvel Land.

Maybe not Link, and definitely not the Mario Bros. due to how cartoony they are that clashes with their “serious” anime aesthetic, but I think Samus MIGHT be safe. And DEFINITELY I can see Captain Falcon and the Howard twins from Astral Chain happening

Yeah, I can see Howard joining the roster, especially if we get more Platinum characters like Bayo. I can see them having interactions with Persona users or Strider Hiryu. Also;

Characters I want to see in a sequel part 3: Capcom

  • A new Darkstalker Solo Unit. Felicia and Hsien-Ko were pretty fun and already appeared in multiple crossovers but a new addition might shake things up a little bit. My choice would be Jon Talbain or Lilith.
  • Edward Falcon from Power Stone. I think he has the potential to be an interesting addition with his transforming mechanic and adventurer personality.
  • Kaijin No Soki from Onimusha. I know he's not the most logical pick but I really liked how he plays in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom.
  • Ryu & Nina from Breath of Fire III as a Pair Unit. They seem to be pretty popular and I dig the designs. Plus, Capcom can use a few RPG characters.
  • Nero from Devil May Cry. He can pair up with Vergil if Dante's partner is replaced with Bayonetta. He's my favorite DMC character so I'd love to see him in.
  • Regina from Dino Crisis as half of a Pair Unit, maybe with Jill while Chris pairs up with newcomer Claire Redfield. She was already in Namco x Capcom so why not?
  • Roll, specifically from Mega Man 11. I just think she's neat. Plus, if Tron only returns as a Rival Unit, a new playable Mega Man character would be nice.
  • Honorable mentions because it's Capcom: Mike Haggar, June & Hayato, Cammy, Viewtiful Joe, Saki Omokane, bring back Frank West and Arthur.

Crap, I knew I was forgetting Arthur! Maybe I’ll pair him with Gil (Tower of Druaga, currently a solo unit) I liked the idea the Game Ideas Wiki concept had

For my picks for Nintendo guest characters:
  • If they want someone from the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I think they could look to give the Champions of Hyrule a bit more of a spotlight. So I think perhaps a solo pair up with Daruk and Mipha with Revali or Urbosa as a solo unit.
  • I could see Xenoblade Chronicles 2's Pyra teaming up with Mythra as a pair unit.
  • For Fire Emblem, I could see Byleth pairing up with Edelgard with Claude as a solo unit.

Ok so here’s a Elma/Pythra PXZ3 move set with a few liberties taken

Music choices: XC2 Battle, XC2 UM theme, Black Tar (instrumental), Uncontrollable (instrumental)

Default move: Sliding Slinger & Prominence Revolt
Left move: Shadowstrike & Photon Edge
Right Move: Executioner & Flame Nova
Up Move: Violent Streak & Lightning Buster
Down Move: Stream Edge & Blazing End
Assist move: Verus & Siren (Elma and Mythra get in their respective mechs)
EX Move: Elemental Burst (Pneuma) & Hundred Shells (Elma, who jumps into her true form for some reason. Lucina randomly transformed into her Bride form for her 2 EX with Chrom so Elma can do this idc) Uncontrollable Instrumental (the second chorus part) plays all the while

monolithsoft is fully Nintendo so if xenoblade can get in link can probably get in as well, they have similar rules applied to them whereas kirby, pokemon and fire emblem can be more flexible with what they do.

From Software develops it but I’m like 99% sure it’s a Bamco IP

Bamco Owns the Darksouls trademark, Fromsoftware owns the ip.

it's weird but basically if it get's in both have to participate. bandai namco can't toss it in without FS and FS can't use it without Bamco.

I also think for Namco Bandai, I would love to see some Time Crisis and Splatterhouse representation. Maybe Time Crisis 5's Luke O'Neil and Marc Gadot as a pair unit whilst Keith Valentine and Rick Taylor as a solo unit.

Would Nintendo allow The Legend of Zelda characters to be featured in a game rated Teen? I don't think they would.

Twilight Princess was rated T... the Hyrule Warriors games are too

unless by LOZ you actually meant Splatoon, which... idk. I’m sure some E10+ franchises were repped in PXZ before. Captain Falcon wouldn’t have a problem since GX was rated T.

In a hypothetical X Zone 3 i would want for the 2 Sakura's to have a story that's kinda similar to the .Hack characters from X Zone 2.
You know how Haseo was looking for the clone of Kite and the real Kite tagged along.

Just do that with Yasha and the 2 Sakura's.

You know, since this is a Nintendo-exclusive series that has had Nintendo characters appear in the second game, I think this should be moved to NintenZone.

NonSpecificGuy NonSpecificGuy since you’re a super mod, could you move it there?

Well, here's what I got so far, including things I'm debating on including. No furries or excessively cartoony characters, I'll consider Splatoon safe. Some of the OG companies (Sega, Capcom, Bamco) may be downsized and new companies may be limited in new characters but that's to have as much diversity as possible and keep everyone equally represented as possible.

Here are some thoughts I've had halfway through the game (currently on the Christmas chapter as of writing)

  • Keep KOS-MOS paired with other Xeno series characters but add another Xenosaga character as a solo unit (I'd pick chaos or Ziggy)
  • Natsu is funny
  • The fanservice gets egregious at points. Like really really awful
  • Ace Attorney content is great but I think Phoenix and Maya work well enough as a solo unit. The only characters I think might have enough to make a duo unit are Franziska, Blackquill, and maybe the two from Spirit of Justice whose names I can't remember. I don't know enough about Investigations to give a valid opinion.
  • Vashyron was funny a whole 2 times, every other time it was gross and creepy (especially when paired with the fanservice)

Some characters I think would be cool (Mostly Nintendo and SNK)
1. Any combination of Saki, Airan, Isa or Isa and Kachi or any of those 4 as a solo unit.
2. Isaac + Jenna/Mia/Felix (or Isaac solo)
3. Yuri Kozukata (Maybe ghost summoning or using the camera obscura's various modes?)
4. Advance Wars character + Metal Slug character (Sami + Marco?)
5. Terry + Rock Howard as duo (either Garou Terry + Rock, or timeline messing and original Terry + Rock)
6. Officer Howard solo (using the Astral Chain story spoilersfinishing combo on Noah Prime
7. On the topic of Astral Chain, Jena as a rival unit
8. Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude as a single solo unit. Either war or academy versions would work. How and why do they cooperate? Who knows.
9. Either Johnathan and Charlotte or Alucard and Maria for Castlevania, with Shanoa or Richter/Julius/another Belmont as a solo
10. Ghost Trick

This here moveset contains SPOILERS for a duo that, in my concept, is only unlocked in NG+/Hard Mode and you’re gonna need them for Hard Mode. A hint: they’re two bosses in the original first play through.
T-elos & Sephiroth (New Game+/Hard Mode only)

Playable T-elos uses her XC2 design (her boss version uses the usual Xenosaga III design) and playable Sephiroth is shirtless (his boss version isn’t) not enough male fanservice/appeal to the female gaze in PXZ? Boom problem solved

Default move: ECHIDNA & Octaslash
Up move: MAGDALENE-16 & Scintilla
Down move: Heaven’s Tracker & Hell’s Gate (the former taken from a battle skill name from XC2, is an original move in PXZ3)
Left move: T-SKYLLA & Black Materia
Right move: Heartbreaker (another original move for T-elos) & Shadow Flare
Assist move: idk what to use for T-elos, but Sephiroth will shift into One Winged form and use Heaven’s Light
EX Move: U-TENERITAS & Supernova. Pretty self explanatory. Supernova is based on the Dissidia incarnation, not the Smash one (his boss variant uses the Smash version)

Potential dialogue lines when summoned as assists:
When anybody that isn’t Cloud & Tifa or KOS-MOS & Aigis calls upon them for help:
T-elos: “How pathetic, you need OUR help!”
Sephiroth: “Swallow your pride.”

when Cloud & Tifa call upon them for help:
Sephiroth: “You need to move on, Cloud.”
T-elos: “Are you THAT insecure, Tifa?”

when KOS-MOS & Aigis call upon them for help:
T-elos: “Admit I’m superior, KOS-MOS.”
Sephiroth: “Sentimentality will only weigh you down, Aigis.”

when about to fight their respective boss incarnations:
T-elos: “THIS is supposed to be me? She’s just a prototype.”
Sephiroth: “Hmph. Nothing but a clone.”

they also have interactions with a Solo unit that’s also only unlocked in NG+/Hard Mode, Albert Wesker (uses his RE0 Wesker Mode design; boss version uses the RE5 design) but idk what they’ll say

they also have post battle banter with Cloud & Tifa or KOS-MOS & Aigis if they call in either as an assist or vice versa. Idk what they’ll say tho. If they summon any other duo (or solo that isn’t Wesker) they only have post battle banter with each other and it’s also hella ship tease-y

and no I DEFINITELY don’t ship them... definitely not... haha... ha... hides the commission I’m getting

I'll post my own roster soon, but I have one question?
What do you think about Sonic characters in PXZ3? Is it really a mixed bag as I thought it would?

See, unlike its predecessor Namco X Capcom, PXZ doesn’t seem to like furries in its roster for some reason, they’re practically all humanoids

I included Pearl and Marina in mine cause they are humanoids with cephalopod like features (like how Felicia is a humanoid with feline characteristic)

I was debating adding Eggman as a boss without a playable Sonic or any of his friends but I’m wondering if I can even do that

I don't think the Sonic cast really fits in the setting and direction they're going with PXZ, so I'd rather have them sit this one out.

On a more personal note, Sonic cast already hogs a lot of attention when it comes to SEGA crossovers. While I love the franchise and its characters, it's nice to have a SEGA lineup where other characters have a chance to shine.

ANOTHER update to my roster, this time I added Silent Hill rep (Heather solo and Pyramid Head boss) I really hope it wouldn’t be too dark or creepy for PXZ, after all we had Nemesis in the first game. And an Aya Brea solo. Probably my last update too

new move sets coming soon too - Captain Falcon & Terry, as well as Joker & Yu. I just need to wait for WiFi to come back as I’ve been on 5G for the past day and a half after our internet got knocked out by a storm

I prefer to keep things simple and just think of potential pairings involving Nintendo characters, cross-company or not.

  • Samus & Selvaria Bles (reasoning is a long story I have in mind, culminates in fight with Maximillian and Dark Samus)
  • Fox & Chun-Li (they have a lot of similarities beyond just rapid-fire kicks)
  • Bowser & Astaroth (Ghosts n' Goblins), it might not be obvious, but Bowser does have some demonic inspiration behind him.
  • Captain Falcon & Captain Commando
  • Donkey Kong & Blanka
  • Diddy Kong & Felicia
  • Ganondorf (OOT) & Demitri
  • Strider Hiryu & Greninja (Secret Ninja Attack is pretty much just Ragnarok)
  • Callie & Marie (in their Agents guise)
  • King Dedede & Teisel Bonne (with complementary Waddle Dees and Servbots)
  • Kirby & Klonoa
  • Link (BOTW) & Kite
  • Palutena & Medusa (Hades can be the villain and the latter would get development she got robbed of at the end of Uprising)
  • Viridi and Devilotte (nature vs. tech + tsunderes = hilarity)
  • Peach & Morrigan (I like to think the latter envies the former of how she gets to make her own fun with go-karting and whatnot in her position)
  • Pit & Valkyrie (obvious angel pairing, and the latter can finally shine as a pair unit)
  • Ridley & Firebrand (involves the two of them wanting revenge on Phalanx, the latter for the usual reason, the former because he was hit by a shrinking spell from him)
  • Duck Hunt & B.B. Hood
  • Wolf & Jon Talbain
  • Takamaru and Joe Musashi
  • Phoenix Wright (+Maya) & Ayumi Tachibana (+MC of Famicom Detective Club)
  • Rosalina & Ingrid

ARMS Lightning Round

  • Min-Min & Makoto (Street Fighter, they are closer in personality and motivation than the usual Chun-Li comparison)
  • Ribbon Girl & Ulala
  • Spring Man & Little Mac
  • Master Mummy & Anakaris
  • Mechanica & Tron Bonne (in her MvC mech)
  • Ninjara & Ibuki

And the Nintendo characters I feel work better solo:

  • Falco
  • Dark Pit
  • Bowser Jr.
  • Captain Rainbow
  • Meta Knight
