In what sounds like a sort of spiritual sequel to Namco X Capcom, the two named companies as well as new friends Gust, Nippon Ichi, and Idea Factory will be joining forces to create Cross Edge for PS3. Compile Heart will be handling development.
The story takes place in a world which stays alive by eating the souls of other worlds, which eventually destroys them. It’s the Wal-Mart of worlds.
Two main areas in the game include the underworld and the dream world. The former is populated by characters from Capcom’s Darkstalkers series and Nippon Ichi’s Disgaea, perhaps among others, while the latter’s citizens are comprised of characters from Gust franchises such as Ar Tonelico and Atelier Marie.
In battle, the player is given a certain amount of Action Points, which set the limit as to how much action the player can take. Not much is yet known about exactly how it will work.
Currently projected to arrive in Japan this September, expect more characters to be revealed gradually, as well as a few more notes about the actual gameplay.
