Project Legends (Youtube legends in Europe, and Youtube X Project X Zone in Japan) is a First Person game that combines multiple genres into one game. It was developed by X Studios, and published by X Studios and Google Games. It's based on an anime offically lisensed by Google. It combines the Project X Zone and the Project Legends anime, with characters from other anime series.
The story revolves around Jet, a bounty hunter and agent for the CEA (Corrupted Elimination Agency) who kills beings known as "The Corrupted" , and has been requested to go with his partner Aki to Nexus City to hunt down "The Corrupted". As he reaches Nexus City, a bigger conspiracy is revealed, and is involved in two events known as The War of the Species, and The Digital War. Now, Jet and a select few defenders are Nexus City's last hope...
The game is played in a first person perspective, yet combines multiple genres (Shooter, Puzzle, Open-World, ect.). the game also includes a co-op and competetive multiplayer modes, as the single player experence can suddenly change into a co-op experence as players can join your game at any time. There is also an RPG mode that retains the open world gameplay, but includes Random Encounters instead of running into enemies and engaging into combat. The battle system in the RPG mode includes an ATB System similar to Final Fantasy and the Judgement Ring system from Shadow Hearts. It also includes a weapon switching system, where you can carry up to 3 weapons at a time, and change them mid-battle, or mid-attack. You can wield...
- One Melee weapon (swords, clubs, tonfa, staff, spear, bat etc.)
- A single or two 1-handed weapon (Pistols, Revolvers, Tasers, etc.)
- One 2-handed weapon (Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Snipers, Grenade Launchers, etc.)
But, your ranged weapons (say for your handguns) don't have unlimited ammo, and once your out of ammo, you can't use that weapon. If a clip is empty, you have to wait a turn to reload. It also uses a Trust Mechanic, where you build up positative respect from your teammates.
