More updates on the upcoming Project X Zone sequel!
First off, there was an interview about the sequel and it was confirmed that PXZ2 will address the criticisms of the first game (like story) while having "surprise announcements".
Other than that, more characters both old and new have been announced in PXZ2!
-Ryu and Ken are back as a team.
-Sakura and Gemini return as a team. (Kinda wish I had 1 Sakura Wars rep but hey, the gang's all here!)
-From God Eater 2, Ciel and Nana will be joining the X team!
-Three new solo units will appear! Capcom's Phoenix Wright (and Maya) from Ace Attorney, Namco's Aty from Summon Night and Sega's Axel Stone from Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle. Before I can continue, let me say that hearing Axel return (even though he's fighting in the streets by himself, sorta) is one of the best things I like about PXZ2 so far. I've been a SOR kid and he was one of my wish characters for PXZ2! Let's hope for more!
-Five have been confirmed so far with Dural and Skeith as returning rivals.
-Solo from Strider, Ustanak from Resident Evil 6 and Robo-X (I'd go with Shiva IMO) from Streets of Rage 3/Bare Knuckle 3 will be new rivals.
So far, things are looking good!
