Bandai Namco has revealed that the mixed Project X Zone for the Nintendo 3DS sold around ten times better than the company originally envisioned when it was released in the west in 2013. When the company was asked about a sequel, Shonen Gamez were told that Bandai Namco would love to eventually create one.
Capcom and Namco Bandai’s ambitious brawler Project X Zone is now only $15 on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America. If you’d rather purchase a physical release then you can pick Project X Zone up for $20 on Amazon. Project X Zone features over 50 characters from 29 historic game franchises by three of Japan’s most prolific video game companies. The game currently has an average score of 70 on Metacritic.
This week’s UK chart details are in, and it’s good news for the life simulation game Animal Crossing: New Leaf as it remains in the all-formats top 5, taking the number 4 hotspot just behind The Last of Us, Minecraft and FIFA 13. Meanwhile Luigi’s Mansion 2 has had an incredible run for the Nintendo 3DS and has remarkable staying power at number 19, just inside the top 20.
Project X Zone by Namco Bandai for the Nintendo 3DS, in its debut week, comes in at number 18 – just above Luigi’s Mansion 2. The crossover tactical RPG was released last week for North America and sold over 85,000 units, so there’s still time for Europe to catch up and creep up the charts.
Other Nintendo 3DS games still hanging around in the top 40 are LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins at 31 and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D placed at 34. But with Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros due out later this week, we’re hoping it joins Animal Crossing: New Leaf in the big leagues. You can see this week’s chart here.
