But on this side of the Pacific, these games almost never make an appearance, primarily due to licensing issues and western gamers not being exposed to the source material.

Cross Edge, the crossover game developed by Compile Heart that features characters from Capcom, Nippon Ichi, Gust, and others was previously a PS3 exclusive.

Right now, the page has a listing of several of the characters with bios including Morrigan and Felicia from DarkStalkers, Etna from Disgaea, and Shurelia from Ar Tonelico. The site also has each of the ladies in two alternate costumes, but there is no information about what the effects of the various costumes will do yet.
