Project X Zone (read as Project Cross Zone), a recently announced collaboration title by Sega, CAPCOM and Namco Bandai, is an upcoming strategy simulation RPG for the Nintendo 3DS to be released this year. The game will feature various characters in pairs (though some are an exception) from games of the three companies.
A scan from Famitsu Magazine reveals that Yuri Lowell and Estelle from Tales of Vesperia will be two of the many characters Namco Bandai have for this game.
Other characters under Namco Bandai include: - Kite and Blackrose (.hack//) - Jin Kazama and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken) - KOS-MOS and T-elos (Xenosaga) - Sänger Zonvolt (Super Robot Wars)
And to the interested, here are the characters from Sega: - Sakura Shinguji and Ichiro Ogami (Sakura Wars) - Kurt Irving and Riela Marcellis (Valkyria Chronicles III) - Pai Chan and Akira Yuki (Virtua Fighter) - Ulala (Space Channel 5) together with Toma and Cyrille (Shining Force EXA)
and from CAPCOM: - Ken and Ryu (Street Fighter) - X and Zero (Megaman) - Dante (Devil May Cry) together with Demitri Maximoff (Darkstalkers) - Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)
@Royal_Blade Well, Vesperia is bigger in Japan, presumably. ToGf wasn't. This is more geared at Japanese audiences, not overseas. We'd probably get a fighting game instead of a SRPG XD (I know what you mean though, I would LOVE if it were Graces instead but sighhhhh.). What I'm shocked is why it wasn't Xillia instead. It's better on our part though, it's a better chance this game might make it to NA/EU since it's a localized game.

While I'm one for awesome epic crossovers, I doubt this'll see U.S. shores. If anyone remembers the Namco x Capcom debacle from years ago about which branch here would get the profits, adding Sega into the mix would only complicate legal financial mumbo jumbo. I'm very pleased with the choice of characters all things considered. I'm hoping Lilith and Firebrand get in there too, along with other Tales stars. This isn't the complete roster.
