In our Project X Zone news blast last week we told you that the developers were putting the finishing touches to a brand new trailer for the game.

Well, it looks like they’re done. On Sunday, Namco Bandai Games released this humongous 10-minute-long trailer that showcases every single character that’s been announced so far.

So if you thought the previous trailer was epic, wait till you get a load of this.

On top of characters and their special move animations, the trailer also details a unit edit mode, and tells you how to get five characters fighting on the screen simultaneously. This part is a little complicated, so let’s take it step by step.

Basically, characters in Project X Zone either fight in pairs (pair unit) or alone (solo unit). However, in the unit edit mode, you can add a solo unit to a pair, resulting in a three-man unit.

In such three-man teams, during combat you will take control of the pair unit. At any point, however, you can hit the L trigger to summon your solo unit character to come in for an assist.

But that’s not all; solo units are not the only characters who can support you in combat.

A pair unit can assist you in combat as well, but the conditions for this to happen are different – the pair unit must be adjacent to the unit you’re controlling on the field. This will open up the option to call in a “Support Attack” by hitting the R trigger.

During combat you can call in your solo unit and support attack unit to come in simultaneously, resulting in five characters ganging up on the enemy.

Project X Zone for the 3DS is slated for an October 11 release in Japan.

An English version of the game has yet to be announced.
