Project X Zone 2 is a crossover tactical role-playing game. It features characters from Capcom, Bandai Namco, and Sega franchises in addition to featuring guest characters from Nintendo. On a grid-based battlefield, the player alternates turns moving their units strategically towards battle with the enemy. Units can pair up in a number of ways. When opposing units engage one another, the battle style changes over to fast-paced combat where the player must use well-timed attacks and combos to do as much damage to the opponent as possible before their turn ends.
