This topic exists to answer many questions that keep getting asked about the game, to hopefully stop constant topics on the same thing over and over again. I can already tell you now it won't be 100% successful, but it should at least cut down on them.

This is NOT, I repeat, NOT a topic of discussion. Its a topic of gathering what we know into one, compiled topic. I don't want to see any complaints, speculation, etc. in this topic. If you want to add anything that I left out in the first post, I encourage you to do so.

That said, lets get going!

What is this game?

Its a Crossover between Sega, Namco-Bandai and Capcom. The game is being made by Banpresto of the Super Robot Wars series fame, and will be a Strategy RPG, with gameplay that resembles Endless Frontier series.

The game will be released on the Nintendo 3DS.

Wait, this isn't a fighting game?

No, no it is not. Fighting Games are NOT the only genre that allow for Crossovers. This game is more like the spiritual successor of Namco x Capcom, which was also a Strategy RPG. As such, there is no "maining" characters in this game, nor characters fighting one another in the usual Fighting Game sense.

As for why its not a Fighting Game, that is a discussion for another topic.

What characters are in this game?

The CONFIRMED cast as it stands now is as follow:

Ryu (Street Fighter)
Ken (Street Fighter)
X (Mega Man X)
Zero (Mega Man X)
Demitri (Darkstalkers)
Dante (Devil May Cry)
Chris (Resident Evil)
Jill (Resident Evil)

Shinguji Sakura (Sakura Wars)
Ogami Ichiro (Sakura Wars)
Pai (Virtua Fighter)
Akira (Virtua Fighter)
Kurt (Valkyria Chronicles)
Riela (Valkyria Chronicles)
Ulala (Space Channel 5)
Touma (Shining Force EXA)
Cyrille(Shining Force EXA)

Namco Bandai:
Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars)
Jin (Tekken)
Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken)
KOS-MOS (Xenosaga)
T-elos (Xenosaga)
Yuri (Tales of Vesperia)
Estelle (Tales of Vesperia)
Kite (.hack)
Black Rose (.hack)

NOTE: If I used the Japanese name of characters above, I apologize, I don't recognize all the characters, and was going off an arbitrary site to make sure I didn't miss anyone.

What is this talk about teams?

Characters apparently group up in pairs, and fight as a whole. Of the confirmed cast, characters in the same series will be paired together. The only exception so far is Dante/Demitri.. Furthermore, it appears that Sanger does not have a partner, and likely a few others who will be this way.

Wait, why isn't *insert character here* in this game!?

The cast is NOT, I repeat, NOT completed. This is just the INITIAL ROSTER ANNOUNCEMENT. The trailer openly says "and more" for each of the companies in their roster collages, and games like this never have their full cast revealed from the outset. Furthermore, there are Chromosomes of characters not yet revealed

What characters are speculated to be in this?

Sorry, but this is not a topic about speculation and discussion, just what we know or has been shown. Its true there are reasons to believe some characters will be in the game based off Voice Actor statements and Chromosomes, but they are at best soft confirmations.

Will this be localized?

Sadly, we cannot say at this point. While everyone has their reasons to believe why it will and won't be localized, there is no info one way or another in this regard. All that can be said is "Wait and see, and keep your fingers crossed."

That should be a good start at this point. Again, feel free to add info I left out above, like confirmed stages and what not.

Oh, thanks *edits*

I'd edit your post in, but I'm about to hit the post limit, still good info!

Some enemies I caught were:

Mettaur (Megaman)
Marrionette (Devil May Cry 1)
Gnosis (Xenosaga)

I know there were others that are distinguishable, but I don't know enough to make out who they are, so feel free to fill in the gaps there.

Requested as well.

To add to the list of enemies, there are also Oozes from Resident Evil.
If Dead Rising's Movieland is included, I'm sure we can also include their variation of zombies.

Fairly certain I saw Ryu & Ken fighting the RE1 Tyrant as well.

6 new characters announced:

Frank West (Dead Rising)
Hsien-Ko (Darkstalkers)

Alisa and Soma (God Eater)

Leanne and Zephyr (End of Eternity/Resonance of Fate)

I believe they are all teams, but not 100% certain; either way, that's 6 new characters to add to the confirmed roster.
