For a second, I thought that it would be impossible for Project X Zone to come over to the west, since the game contained characters from video games that stayed in Japan. Apparently, Tekken's producer Katsuhiro Harada believes that the game could do well worldwide, so he pitched the idea of a localization to his higher ups. The best part is that he is going to keep trying with all of his might until they give in to his request.
Taking into account that X Zone contains a handful of popular characters from Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai, there are high chances that people might bite into this game for the sake of creating their ultimate dream team for battle. If you are unsure of what to expect out of Project X Zone, Elliot did a write up on his impression of the game's demo at TGS.
While we wait for the results of Harada's battle, you can also take a look at the animated opening for Project X Zone. Even though the song in the opening is not as catchy as Brave New World from Namco x Capcom, the animated sequences make up for it in the long run.
Perhaps the worst possible outcome is that the higher ups might get mad at him for pestering them about the localization, so let's hope that everything goes well.
