They had me at “Hotpants”
We already knew that Project X Zone 2 was going to be slated for release in North America and Europe this fall but now we have an official release date for Japan. With Japan’s release set for November 12 it stands to reason the same window of time will cover the West.
Gematsu was the first to spill the beans on the release date and the site has a bit of information about the 3DS title to boot. Among the little factoids is that you will be able to get a challenge map DLC called “Woman of ’10 Years’ Past’” with first-print copies. If you are able to clear this map, you will be able to get the special item “Black Hotpants.” You’ll also get a download code for a special 3DS theme. There will also apparently be a more expensive, Limited Edition version of X Zone 2 that comes with what is being dubbed, “Original Game Sound.”
This feature allows users to switch between the background music for this new version of the game and the original version. There are more than 60 additional songs available in the Limited Edition. Gamers who buy this version will get some other goodies as well including an Adventure of Valkyrie: Legend of the Key of Time with Xiamou download code as well as a “Namco X Capcom 10th Anniversary Resource” three-sided package that is illustrated by Takuji Kawano and finally a Namco X Capcom “10th Anniversary Resource” Special 3DS theme
Project X Zone 2 for the Nintendo 3DS is going live around the world for the 3DS this fall and Japan is getting it November 12.
