Project X Zone - Screenshots and information

With a pedigree that includes Capcom, Sega and Namco Bandai, Project X Zone was bound to draw some attention.  What is it?  So far it's been listed as a strategy RPG with a fairly beefy list of characters to be included.

The list of characters so far is considered a starting point only, and that there may be hidden/unlockable ones to be attained later.  The sets of characters work in pairs during the battles.  Here's the current character list:

Ryu & Ken (Street Fighter 0)
X and Zero (Mega Man)
Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers, Devil May Cry)
Chris and Jill (Resident Evil)
Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro (Sakura Wars)
Pai and Akira (Virtua Fighter)
Kurt and Riela (Valkyria Chronicles)
Ulala and Touma (Space Channel 5, Shining Force EXA)
Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars)
Jin and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken)
Kos-Mos and T-elos (Xenosaga)
Yurie and Estel (Tales of Vesperia)
Kaito and Black Rose (.hack)

So - what are your thoughts on this?  The screenies look more like fighter than strategy-RPG, but until we see it in motion (there's supposed to be a video trailer in the coming weeks) we really won't know.  There have been more and more crossover efforts of late, like Street Fighter and Tekken, or even Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition.  Does this pique your interest at all?  Here's a handful of screenshots as well:
