This is more in regards to 2, but here's some Nintendo characters I would've loved to see:
  • Samus & Captain Falcon
  • Zelda & Midna (the latter would be riding Wolf Link)
  • Pit & Palutena
Shulk was a no brainer too since you had Fiora

and while not Nintendo, never forget Bayonetta almost made it in 2. Needless to say Kamiya regrets denying her now

Viewtiful Joe too! I feel he’d fit right in in PXZ

I think I'll also write some dialogue for some of the pairs I would've loved to see in 2:
  • Segata
    • CF: "The legendary Segata Sanshiro...? Why don't you show me your moves?"
    • Segata: "I'll gladly show how stylish my moves are to two legendary bounty hunters! I only need less than three hours!"
    • Samus: "That's great, but...why three hours specifically?"
  • Phoenix Wright & Maya Fey
    • Samus: "Don't worry, Phoenix. You have two bounty hunters to protect you."
    • Phoenix: "Thanks, guys. Especially since I'd rather be back in the courtroom than here right now."
    • CF: "Hmm... I wonder if Black Shadow or Deathborn would be scared of Phoenix's legal expertise?"
  • Ingrid
    • Ingrid: "Looks like even legends can't live forver, huh?"
    • CF: "That's why you gotta live your life to the fullest!"
    • Samus: "...Ingrid, what do you know that I don't?"
  • Aty
    • Samus: "Please tell me you can summon something that can combat the Space Pirates."
    • Aty: "I don't think extraterrestrial life is my field of expertise."
    • CF: "Good, because I don't think I wanna see Deathborn summoned out of nowhere."
  • Segata
    • Segata: "Never thought I'd join forces with SEGA's greatest rival!"
    • Zelda: "What? What is...'SEGA'?"
    • Midna: "Based on his tone of voice, he must seem very loyal!"
  • Phoenix Wright & Maya Fey
    • Zelda: "Maya, do you have the ability to purify someone of their ailments?"
    • Maya: "You mean 'how do I turn someone back from a wolf'? Can't say I know anything about that."
    • Midna: "Aw, but I like riding on Link's back!"
  • Ingrid
    • Ingrid: "Wow, this Zelda seems a lot...moodier than I thought."
    • Midna: "Huh? What does she mean 'this Zelda'?"
    • Zelda: "Just how old are you, Ingrid?"
  • Segata
    • Segata: "Pit! You must turn this battle up to Intensity 9.0!"
    • Pit: "9.0?! Lady Palutena, please don't..."
    • Palutena: "Oh, stop being a baby, Pit. The post-battle pleasure's worth all the torture."
  • Phoenix Wright & Maya Fey
    • Pit: "I wish I could fly on my own one day..."
    • Phoenix: "Objection! You clearly have wings, no?"
    • Palutena: "Hold it! Pit can't fly without my help."
  • Ingrid
    • Palutena: "Alright, Ingrid, spill it; who are you really?"
    • Ingrid: "I don't think even a goddess wants to know that information."
    • Pit: "Oh, come on! It can't be that bad, right?"
  • Segata
    • Segata: "I have brought down scores of them before...those things aren't human!"
    • G: "Seriously? With what you call a 'light gun'? Don't think even my old colleague could manage that!"
    • Rogan: "If you could take them with a light gun (whatever that is), I'd hate to see you with actual ammunition."
  • Phoenix Wright & Maya Fey
    • Rogan: "I'm not really sure zombies are your thing, Nick."
    • G: "But maybe you could throw the book at Curien and his organization?"
    • Phoenix: "Just as long as zombies don't attack the courtroom, then sure!"
  • Ingrid
    • Rogan: "Ingrid, just how old are you?"
    • G: "Really, Rogan? You're just gonna ask a woman her age like that?"
    • Ingrid: "Says the man who doesn't even wanna say what 'G' stands for!"
  • Segata
    • Segata: "Frank! I bet your camera doesn't have the raw power that comes from 32 bits of pure processing power!"
    • Frank: "Yeah, how do I put this? This camera is way more powerful than some old hunk of junk system from the 90's."
    • Chuck: "Making this guy angry isn't something you wanna do, Frank."
  • Phoenix Wright & Maya Fey
    • Chuck: "Can you sue Phenotrans up the roof on my behalf? They've done nothing but destroy my life."
    • Frank: "I've been tied in some legal trouble as well, if you're interested."
    • Phoenix: "Gentlemen, please! One case at a time! I barely have time to sort out my own problems..."
  • Ingrid
    • Chuck: "You've lived a long life, haven't you? You must've aged really gracefully!"
    • Ingrid: "Hey, that's just creepy! Age isn't something you talk about in a casual conversation!"
    • Frank: "And, there they go, making me feel old again..."
This was the best I could do so far. I'll update it whenever I can.

Samus and CF should have had a Chrom and Lucina interaction, especially referencing the Robin trailer

Ah...not sure how well I could pull that off unless Robin was a solo unit or something.

But I think that's enough PXZ2 talk for now.
Fiora references Shulk who isn’t in the game so I think it’s fine to reference Robin who also isn’t in the game

I wanted to pick a Persona villain while tiptoe-ing around spoilers (for as weird as that sounds)
Anyways, here's a gameplay mechanic I thought of: Trio Attacks, where specific Pair Units could team up with specific Solo Units (for example; Sonic, Tails and Knuckles) to perform a special team attack.
I had this exact same idea, like Joker and Queen doing an all out attack normally but if you equip a third Persona character as a solo unit you get an all out attack with the three Persona characters together.

Classic Mega Man
I find it extremely bizzare that in the three X zone games weve gotten Classic Megaman has never showed up. He's gotta exist somewhere in this world since we know that eventually the X series and the Legends series happens right? Whats Rock doing during all these wacky events?

Actually i just had a good idea for that, in a new X Zone game they have it take place just after the first classic Megaman game and say that he's only recently been created?

I dont know how they would make a moveset for him but Masaki from Super robot wars would be a neat inclusion as a solo unit
Masaki.png

His whole shtick is that he and his two cat familiars who shoot lazers keep getting lost in different sections of the SRW multiverse which X zone is a part of, with his most recent appearance being him showing up in Super robot wars X for the Switch. Teaming up with characters from Gundam wing and Code Geass.

Know what I just realized? Eggman could’ve also worked for this series as a solo unit if we’re sticking to a “humans only” mindeset. What kind of scenarios do you think would arise from that?
I don't think there would be an issue with adding Eggman, seeing he'd likely be a rival unit and they have all kinds of characters, not just humanoids.

Okay, so here’s an interesting question: do you think the next game will use 2D sprites again or will it go 3D?
3D, 3D games are always better.
2D Project X Zone games are basically boring and bland, so better cross the barrier to 3rd Dimension!
Unless if we want to go easy, then just go with 2D to not worry about problems.
(It's my opinion)

I think it'd be pretty hard to replicate PXZ's appeal in 3D, seeing how much it relies on exaggerated pixel animation that would be extremely hard to capture with 3D models.

Not to mention, they allow characters to e implemented more easily, making such a big roster feasible.

Or how about this.
2D characters and pixel art, but the Environments are 3D.

They'd probably stick to 2D because it's sister series Super Robot Wars still uses 2D for like 90% of it's assets, unless the IP's they use have a lot of 3D in them.

Like for example Cross Ange when it showed up In two of the SRW switch games they had most of Ange's animations be 2D sprites unless it was her final attack then they replicate the 3D animation seen in her anime.

Here's an interesting thought: if an updated rerelease of PxZ 2 came out in 2018 for the Switch, what other characters could you see joining the roster?
Bayonetta, Captain Falcon maybe, Corrin? **** it Pyra/Mythra too. MAYBE Elma if they can get over the Hiroyuki Sawano curse (which isn’t really a thing but whatever)

oh oh and a Joker/Yu Narukami duo

Mario and Sonic would be very cool additions, since they are company Mascots.
Like I mentioned earlier, Takamaru would be the best Retro character choice.

I have an idea:
Instead of having Nintendo guests, we could establish Nintendo as company in Projext X Zone like Capcom or SEGA.
It won' be an Issue.
Thats what most of this thread has been running with. lol

Captain Falcon/Samus
Two of the three houses house leaders
Pit teaming up with Valkyrie
Rex/Pyra

Those are the pair units i would be down with.

Akira howard (Astral chain)
Cynthia (Pokemon)
Zelda
Itsuki (Tokyo mirage sessions)

Would be the solo units i'd be down with.

As for the other companies, characters i would like to see:


Star force Megaman/Harp Note (Megaman Starforce)
Sakura and Kamiyama (Sakura Wars)
Joker/Makoto (Persona 5)
Aegis (Persona 3)
Yagami (Judgment)
Alex (Street fighter 3)
Dante/Bayonetta
Kyoko (Digimon)
Masaki (Super Robot Wars OG)

I'm surprised Masaki wasnt in either X zone 1 or 2, considering his entire schtick was that he travels throughout the alternate realities of Bandai Namco crossover titles and half the time we see him in SRW it's the same guy, there's like 2 Masaki's running around, one from the OG timeline who has met guys like Spike Spiegel and Heero Yui and the one from the SNES timeline who came back for SRW30.

I really doubt this would happen but I think a team up of goku and vegeta would be a good pick for a project x zone unit since bandai namco owns the game rights and dragon ball content would fit right in. After 2 got segata this game needs something to surpass that shock lol
Use that one plot point from FighterZ to justify why Goku isnt one shotting everyone.
