Just a small info update on Bandai Namco's Project X Zone. A recent update details some of the support characters, and we get a little more idea what Iris is up to. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear the afterlife has changed her mind much. Her description says of her, "A Reploid woman who once served as an operator for the Maverick Hunters HQ. She was thought to have met a tragic end during a battle, however..." Furthermore, the key quote given to her is, naturally, "I want to be in a world of only Reploids... with you." This may tie into the conversation we see Iris and Zero are having, where Zero says "Iris. That is my answer. My hope, again is..."
Despite knowing that the whole idea of a Reploid-only world was a fantasy, will Iris be hurting Zero the same manner in X4? Of course the real question is, is this even Iris? Considering X and Zero's mission seems to take place in a Cyberspace area, it's certainly possible Vile or someone conjured a digital memory just to make Zero suffer. Just my fanboy-ish guess, anyhow. Whatever the case may be, we'll know more next week when the game comes out.
Incidentally, the afterlife has certainly been generous to... certain aspect of Iris' design. Or maybe it's just character designers. Check out the PXZ page for a couple screens and voice samples.
