Fighting game characters such as: Ryu, Ken, Akira Yuki, Pai Chan, Jin Kazama, Ling Xiaoyu, Demitri, Morrigan, Hsien-Ko, Megaman X, Zero, Dante & Frank West have been confirmed as playable characters!

Stages in Project X Zone take place in grid-based locations from various Capcom, Sega & Namco games. Unlike Namco X Capcom, units can move freely within their range on the field map, with no penalty for accessing treasure chests or destructible objects prior to attacking.

The battle system is known as the Cross Active Battle System. Pressing the "A" button in combination with the Circle Pad performs up to five basic attack combos. Additional gameplay elements include Support Attack, which allows the player to call in a nearby ally for assistance, and Cross Hit, which freezes the target in place during simultaneous attacks from multiple units.

Also, the player can trigger Critical Hits by connecting their next attack just before the target hits the ground after the first. As the player's units deal damage, the player's Cross Power (XP) gauge fills up and can be used for special attacks and defensive moves on the map. Damage done via Cross Hits can fill this gauge up to 150%.
