Project X Zone 2 Demo Hits eShop

Project X Zone was one of the more exciting and versatile games on the Nintendo 3DS. The collaboration between Sega, Capcom and Namco Bandai brought together many characters from multiple fan favourite series’. I was a HUGE fan of the first game so when news of a sequel was announced, you could say I was excited!


Even better is the news that in the past 48 hours, a demo has hit the eShop with even better game play than the first game. This will definitely be a day one purchase for me! Here’s a trailer showing some awesome action.

Media Create, who tracks all sales in Japan, has announced that the PS3 version of the game managed to sell through 86.55% of its allocated stock while the PS Vita version shifted 89.25% copies. Not bad for early figures and Media Create are indicating that they’re expecting to see more copies sold over the coming weeks. Given the success of the Nintendo DS title, Jump Superstars, which shifted 745, 000 copies all together, they’re predicting more success for this title, even more so for the PS Vita version.
