Crazy Sega Saturn mascot and more to join Project X Zone 2

Segata Sanshiro sega saturn

Bandai Namco Entertainment’s Project X Zone is the ultimate fan game that features characters from different Capcom, Sega and Bandai Namco series. While the game featured a very unique but complex story, it was the characters themselves that made the game enjoyable, especially with how they interacted with each other.

While characters like Vergil (Devil May Cry), Haseo (.Hack//GU), Captain Commando (Captain Commando), Leon Kennedy (Resident Evil 4) and more have already been announced, let’s look at the most recent announcements for the game.

Meet Aty from the Summon Night series. She first appeared as the main heroine in Summon Night 3 for the PlayStation 2 back in 2003, which was never released outside of Japan. She is very kind and has taken the position as a school principal by Summon Night 5 (which is being released in the West by Gaijinworks). She will be a solo unit.

God Eater 2’s Ciel Alencon & Nana Kazuki will be joining the game as a duo. Ciel is a member of the Blood Forces of Fenrir. She can awaken the power of the blood and use blood arts to unleash devastating attacks.

Joining Hotsuma will be Kunoichi Hibana, who was introduced in Nightshade, a sequel to Sega’s Shinobi series. Hibana will be a solo unit, while Hotsuma will be paired up with Strider.

Finally the most interesting addition to the cast isn’t a video game character, but instead a character made up by Sega to advertise the Sega Saturn system in Japan. The character was intense and could outrun a professional ice skater on the ice with his bare feet, roundhouse kick a baseball barefoot that was shot out by a pitching machine and even stop a missile with his bare hands after jumping off a major building all in the name of selling the Saturn Systems.

The character was Segata Sanshiro and was portrayed by actor Hiroshi Fujioka, who was best known for playing the hero Takeshi Hongo aka Kamen Rider 1.

Project X Zone 2 is set to release on November 12th in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS, and early 2016 in North America and Europe.
