Project X Zone 2 cast joined by 'Resonance of Fate' trio, Segata Sanshiro, and Rival Characters

Bandai Namco has revealed even more characters joining the increasingly large roster for Project X Zone 2: Brave New World. The publisher has also provided numerous stillshots of the game's opening animated movie, which you can find in the gallery at the bottom of this post.

New additions include June Lin Milliam from Capcom's Star Gladiator on the original PlayStation and Captain Commando from the classic arcade game of the same name. (see gallery)

The most amusing addition is that of Segata Sanshiro, the infamous Sega Saturn Japanese mascot as a solo unit (see gallery for full render).

JRPG fans might recognize the returning trio from Resonance of Fate: Zephyr, Vashyron, and Leanne. Heihachi Mishima from Tekken also returns as a solo unit.
