If there’s one thing I like most about Project Cross Zone so far, it’s the attention to detail. Everything about X and Zero appears to be modeled after Mega Man X4: their attacks, their game locale, even the artwork does a fine job of mimicking the style from then. It certainly helps that X4 is one of my favorites of the series, too.
Yet another area where Banpresto has done their homework is the voice acting, because the talents behind X and Zero are no strangers to the characters. According to the recent Famitsu article, X is being voiced by Takahiro Sakurai. Sakurai provided the voice of X in his more recent games Command Mission, X8 and Maverick Hunter X.
Meanwhile, Zero is voiced by none other than Ryotaro Okiayu. Okiayu has exclusively voiced Zero from X4 and on. He’s also voiced Proto Man, Shadow Man and Turbo Man in some of the classic series outings.
While I’m not terribly excited for PXZ as a game itself, it is of course neat to see the support of X and Zero and the detail they’re getting. I wonder what else will be used, in terms of characters, music and mechanics?
