PXZ Site Updates with Tron and Servbot Details, Voices (Updated)

Can't get enough of Tron and her followers? The Project X Zone official site has updated with the latest announced contents. You can see this fine artwork of Tron and the Servbot, as well as hear samples of their voice acting. They again have messages from the voice talents, and we'll see if we can get translations up sometime. You can also check out some nice screens of Tron and her loyal Servbots in action. Go check it out, you Tron nuts!

UPDATE: With many thanks to TMMN viewer Amunshen, we now have a translation of the actresses Iizuka and Chisa's personal statements.

Hello Everyone, I'm Iizuka Mayumi, playing Tron Bonne.

Wow, it's already been over 10 years since I met Tron! But I still feel very happy about this reunion with her.

She's so energetic and positive...well she's sometimes also stubborn and clumsy. whenever I act as her, I think that I have so many things in common with her, too, but she's the one who always gives me lot of energy.

Anyway, It seems like a lot of characters from many different games are joining this game! I'd be so happy if Tron becomes a help to you and you like her amongst them!

So! This is Iizuka Mayumi as Tron Bonne! See you!

 

Hi, This is Chisa Yokoyama as the Servbots.

Well, actually I'm already appearing in this game as another character....Sakura Shinguji.

I wouldn't ever think that both of those characters could appear in same game, but I was so happy seeing the scene when the Servbot says "Imperial Flower Combat Troop!" because I love him very much, too.

And one more thing I'm happy about... a game I'm totally crazy over, Street Fighter II, well, I got to say "Hadouken!" as a Servbot.

So, since I absolutely want everyone to hear this, please play this game with Servbots!

By the way, to tell you how much I love Servbots, I even have a Servbot head which becomes a neat mug when I take the cap on its top. I really treasure this mug.

Anyway, I'm Chisa Yokoyama.

Tron and Servbots joining Project X Zone

New Mega Man characters are joining into the cross battle, according to the latest Famitsu. Tron Bonne and her Servbots (or at least one of them) will be part of the game along with X and Zero. Curiously, in what's appeared in Famitsu so far, Tron does not seem to use her Gustaff mecha. However, she does get to put her Servbots to great use, and even rides atop a giant one. Also, it's hard to make out, but it appears Tron and co. are fighting the dreaded Sharukurusu Reaverbot. That WOULD have to appear.

We have confirmed as well that the characters will retain their previous voice performers, with Mayumi Izuka voicing Tron, and Chisa Yokoyama voicing the Servbot(s).

We'll do our best to keep you posted as more developments turn up. Stayed tuned!

Update: Image added! Thanks, Magnet_Man!

New Trailer of X and Zero in Action in Project X Zone

A new trailer for Capcom, SEGA, and Namco Bandai's 3DS game Project X Zone was just released in Japan. It's a long one at 10 minutes, but we do get to see a lot of game play and characters, which includes X and Zero of course. There's two great scenes with them, including one where you can see the duo use some special weapons which includes X's Double Cyclone and Zero's Rakuhouha. There's also various Mega Man-related enemies, including the Gun Volt (the blue thing from Mega Man X that shoots missiles and lightning). I swear I also saw what looked like Mirumijee (those snake/worm things from Mega Man Legends) in there as well.

Check out the new trailer below.

Looks like the game is still set to release in Japan on October 11th; however, still no word on an Western release.

Voice Talents Behind X and Zero in PXZ

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?
