Project X Zone takes place in a world surrounded by a hidden chaos with shadows and evil lurking beneath the peaceful cover of everyday life. When a rift in time and space suddenly appears, a doorway to various universes is opened allowing both heroes and villains from different worlds to cross paths. Players will be able to take control of a huge selection of paired heroes including favorites such as Jin and Xiaoyu (TEKKEN®), Zephyr and Leanne (Resonance of Fate), to X and Zero (Mega Man® X) and discover the cause of the rift and stop evil from coming through and spreading into their world.
