Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Announced stars

Instead of Tekken 7, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada announced Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It will follow in its predecessor, Tekken Tag Tournament’s footsteps and include two-on-two action between popular Tekken characters. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will include all the gameplay changes that have been introduced from Tekken 4 to Tekken 6, including multitier stages and walls. In addition, by choosing specific team combinations, players will gain access to unique tag attacks. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is set for a summer 2011 arcade release. No word yet on a console release, but at least it beats out the 2012 projections for Street Fighter X Tekken. Trailer after the jump.

Disgaea 4 America Bound and HD stars

Originally hinted at during the NIS press event in July, the newest Disgaea will be heading stateside next summer and will feature a new graphic engine. Reportedly, the game will also feature new gameplay systems that will compliment gameplay fans have come to know and love. Disgaea 4 will be available on Playstation 3 next year. Until then, fans can get their dungeon traversing and grinding fill with Disgaea 3.

Devil May Cry Sequel Announced stars

Capcom has just announced a new entry in the Devil May Cry franchise. While this is the fifth game in the series, the title is simply listed as DmC for the time being. With the abandonment of numbered installments and a whole new look, perhaps we’re looking at a reboot of the series. Overall it looks much grittier and has a western atmosphere to it. This comes as no surprise, considering that the game is developed by Ninja Theory, the team behind Sony’s Heavenly Blade. The game is scheduled to be released on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. No gameplay videos have been released yet, but screenshots and an excerpt from Capcom’s press release are included after the jump.

UPDATE: Trailer included within.

Japanese Mythology Turns Badass stars

Capcom’s secret project with CyberConnect2 has just been revealed. Asura’s Wrath is a new action game that follows Asura, a fallen deity. From the looks of the trailer, the game will include dynamic cutscenes with button input commands. This seems to be a continuing trend with Capcom games. So far, the scale of the action in this game looks amazing and will keep players’ adrenaline pumped throughout gameplay. It’s great to see a new IP from Capcom, especially in a time full of sequels. Screenshots and more after the jump.

UPDATE: Trailer embedded after the jump.

Team ICO HD Collection Confirmed stars

Team ICO's Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are confirmed for an HD re-release on Playstation 3. No word yet on any changes, pricing, or whether the two titles will come to the US, but the original report seems to show that the games will be individually sold, rather than as a bundle as rumored. Originally, the games did not get much commercial success, so while it had a large cult following, many gamers have no tried or even heard of either game. Hopefully with this release, Team ICO will get more acclaim and lead to a larger commercial success for The Last Guardian, the development team's next game.

UPDATE: Both games will be available in 3D, according to Sony's Press Conference for Tokyo Game Show. Both the US and European release will be on one disc, although there's no word yet on the Japanese release.

A Chance to Date AKB48 stars

Konami will be releasing a new love simulator for the Playstation Portable that pits players against the girls of AKB48. AKB1/48 Idol to Koishitara, or loosely translated to AKB1/48 If I Loved an Idol, allows players to pick their favorite AKB48 girls to become their girlfriends. No word yet on gameplay specifics, but expect over 10,000 pictures of girls, 80 minutes of the girls swooning over you, and full voice-overs. The game is set for a December 23 release. More info inside.

Duodecim Shots Emerge stars

Screenshots of Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy have been posted up. In addition, the game will appear in playable form at Tokyo Game Show this year, so some gameplay details will hopefully emerge. Screenshots seem to show little graphical differences from Dissidia Final Fantasy, perhaps attesting to that the Playstation Portable may be at its limits. From the screenshot, however, we can tell that Lightning's Limit Break in this game will be reminiscent of the Gestalt system in Final Fantasy XIII. For more information, visit the official site, which only has a teaser at the moment but will likely get updated after Tokyo Game Show. Screenshots after the jump.

MangaGamer Announces Trial Version for Koihime Musou

September 11, 2010 - We at MangaGamer are proud to announce that a Trial Version of Koihime Musou is now available.

Hongou Kazuto was just an average, ordinary student at St. Francessca Academy. His biggest goal at the time was to defeat his upperclassman in Kendo. Then, on one fateful night he stood off against a thief trying to steal an ancient artifact from the school museum, and found himself transported back in time to the Three Kingdoms Era of ancient China. But just as he was about to lose his life to a group of armed bandits, a dark-haired beauty came to his rescue and sent the bandits packing. She introduces her self as Kan'u, the legendary warrior known as Guan Yu in historic records, but what's more surprising, is that she is convinced Kazuto is the messenger from Heaven they've been waiting for--the one who will quell the wars enveloping all of China!

Gundam Musou 3 Coming Winter stars

The next game in the Gundam Musou or Dynasty Warriors: Gundam series has just been announced and is slated for a winter release. Gundam Musou 3 is the third and latest game in the series and will feature mobile suits from four new series, returning selectable mobile suits from Gundam Musou 2, and more cartoony cel-shaded graphics. As of right now, there’s no specific info on which new mobile suits will be making an appearance. Developers also said that the game will be harder overall and the AI will show more cooperation, which will be great for fans who get tired of simply hacking away at mobile suits one by one. For a complete list of Gundam series included and more info about the series, hit the jump.

Edgeworth Continues with More Investigations stars

Gyakuten Kenji 2, sequel to Gyakuten Kenji or Ace Attorney Investigations, has just been announced. It will feature a new gameplay system, which has yet to be detailed. The only clue that’s been given is that key word for it is “chess.” Perhaps this means players will begin “trapping” enemies’ faulty logic until they get a “checkmate?” Otherwise, gameplay doesn’t seem to change much. More after the jump.
