  • All-Star Cast: Given the large cast, many well-known veteran voice actors provide voice work for characters in both games.
  • Bad Export for You: Apparently, even instrumental versions of certain songs have to be licensed separately from the game. As such, the American version has a number of Cut Songs, including World's Love, Over The Clouds, If You Wish For..., Ring a Bell, Mexican Flyer, HIGH-RISE TO HELL (from Dynamite Deka/Die Hard Arcade), ROCKS, and the vocal version of the game's main theme, Wing Wanderer. The sequel, however, has no cut content.
  • Development Gag: A Servbot is upset at Tron's rocket project to save her Mega Man being delayed, possibly referencing Legends 3 (which would have at least partially involved building said rocket) getting cancelled.
  • Doing It for the Art: For the western release, the rights for every single character had to be re-negotiated. Barring some missing songs for the first game, both games were given a western release.
  • Dueling Games: Brave New World did this with Fire Emblem Fates in North America, as both are strategy RPGS on the 3DS releasing in the same week. Funny considering that:
    • A: Their previous titles, Fire Emblem: Awakening and the first Project X Zone were released within months of each other. As detailed on the YMMV page, one Western reviewer made unfavorable comparisons between the two games, to the detriment of the latternote 
    • B: Chrom and Lucina are present in both games.
  • Marth Debuted in "Smash Bros.":
    • The Valkyria Chronicles III protagonists fall into this trope. Selvaria Bles does not, having debuted in the first game.
    • Although only the fifth Sakura Wars game was released in America, we did get The Anime of the Game, several OVAs, The Movie, and part of a manga adaptation. As such, the only Sakura Wars characters to fall under this trope are Ciseaux and Aya-me.note 
    • For the second game, Ciel Alencon and Nana Kazuki of God Eater 2 count as that game was released worldwide after Project X Zone 2.
  • Milestone Celebration: Project X Zone 2 serves as the 10th anniversary of Namco Capcom. Seemingly, 2 has Reiji and Xiaomu as the main heroes again, Saya as one of the primary antagonists, as well as introduce other members of Shinra and Ouma. In fact, the game's subtitle, Brave New World, shares the same name as Namco X Capcom's main theme.
  • No Dub for You: While the games were able to be officially released and translated to the west, neither game was given an English voice dub. Understandably thanks to the various franchises with different dubbing studios.
  • No Export for You:
    • There's a humorous reference to one case in the sequel (and likely only in the localization) from the Tales of Vesperia pair. Whose PS3 rerelease would only be localized in 2018.
      Yuri: Let's call for our own friends too. Repede, and Rita, and Judy.
      Flynn: And let's not forget Captain Schwann and... what's-her-name. Was there a pirate girl?
    • The Brave New World's Original Game Sound Edition, a soundtrack that has the original songs intact from the various games, was not released outside of Japan due to copyright.
  • Promoted Fanboy: According to the Tokyo Game Show, Tomokazu Sugita used to play Namco Capcom and even references how broken Guy and Shou were in that game with the Smoke Bomb technique and was happy that two of the characters he voiced, Chrom and Axel Stone, got in.
  • The Other Darrin:
  • What Could Have Been:
  • The Wiki Rule: It's not that developed, but it exists.
