One of my favorite crossover games for the PS2 that I enjoy playing. But it sad that it never came to the west.

I have Project X Zone you mentioned at the end. I didn't get all the references at the time, but now I've played more capcom games (Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, the Ace Attorney Trilogy, etc.) I'll get back to it when my backlog frees up a bit. I did like the combat.

That's alright. But I have both of the games for my 3DS. And PXZ 2 is more fun, in my opinion.

Why do you think it's more fun?

Because some of the missions don't have the conditions to finish the map by 3 or 4 turns, and protect one of the chraraters that's important to the chapter.

Those kinds of missions always makes me tense.

Man, I vividly remember sitting in class during college and seeing the news of this game being developed drop! It looked beyond amazing, and also beyond any possibility of getting localized. (╥_╥)

Of course, I was excited because I can't resist a good crossover, be it this, Smash Bros, Super Robot Wars, etc., and WOW, what a helluva crossover this game is! Sadly, despite it even getting a fan-translation, I have still yet to play it myself... I'm already in the middle of making myself tackle some other, long-standing, backlogged games, but I'll get to this one eventually.

Dirty play, though, showing the intro from the game like that. I had forgotten just how good it is, and watching it again really made me want to play the game, despite my current plans, lol.

Well I wanted to be unique when I do review videos, so I wanted to show of game intros. And I love crossover games myself.

Super Robot Wars:T and Super Robot Wars: 30 are some of my favorites, but I just wish Namco Bandai and Capcom would bring NxC to the west.

I have Super Robot Wars T and 30 in hand, but haven't gotten to them yet. Only finally got around to playing SRW X earlier this year, which wasn't my favorite SRW game. It was alright, don't get me wrong, but the way it pulled all the series together wasn't as satisfying as in other entries.

I did love your idea of them bringing NxC to the Switch, though. Man, I would jump all over that! Maybe even throw in some new characters from Nintendo as a bonus, like they did with Project X Zone 2.
