Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki has been unveiled as the latest crossover character to join the cast of Project X Zone 2. Bandai Namco's 3DS RPG already boasts a truly eclectic mix of gaming icons from such worlds as Fire Emblem and Yakuza, with Street Fighter 3's Ingrid and Estelle from Tales of Vesperia also confirmed as new additions.

The hero of Yu Suzuki's beloved series is perhaps the biggest coup yet, though, and further reason for fans to be excited.

It hits Japanese stores in November, before reaching European shores in February. A nice way to prepare for Shenmue 3's probable 2034 release, then.
