First teased back in February 2012, the mysterious Sega/Capcom/Namco Bandai project has been revealed as a strategy RPG for the Nintendo 3DS called Project X Zone ("Project Cross Zone"). Details are sparse for now, but we've got a partial character roster from the reveal in the pages of the latest issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang).
As you'll see in the list after the jump, most of the revealed names appear as part of a pair. This relates to the game's combat component, in which fighting duos face off against one another. A subsequent update from Andriasang notes that the concept for this mega-crossover was born at Namco Bandai, which approached Capcom and, later, Sega.
