New Gameplay Details
There are a couple of gameplay details in Famitsu's report regarding the mysterious "Solo Units." Thus far, the details we've received on the battle system involve Pair Units -- that is, units formed by two characters. You can also add a Solo Unit to this Pair Unit. During battle, you can use the Solo Unit's skills, and also make the Solo Unit perform a Solo Attack by pressing L.
Here's how you can create an attack with five party members. When you perform an attack with the Pair Unit you're currently moving, if another Pair Unit is in the vicinity, you can press R to call the other Pair Unit in for a Support Attack. Press L, and your Solo Unit will also come into the attack, resulting in five character carnage.
Here's a bigger pic of the Project X Zone first print run edition that you're going to be forced to get if you buy at launch.
In addition to the special box, the special package includes two bonus goodies:
A 48-page full color booklet introducing all the various games, complete with promotion illustrations, artwork and more.
The "Crossover Soundtrack CD" with game music from Project X Zone. The CD is apparently filled to the max with music.
This package is just for the game's first print run. Once supplies run out, the game will switch to the software only package. Both versions cost the same, so if you plan on buying Project X Zone, you'll want to buy early.
A brand new trailer is coming soon, the official site says.
