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.

A sequel to Square-Enix’s 2009 fighter Dissidia Final Fantasy will be coming in 2011. The sequel’s name will be Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy and will feature Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII and Kain from Final Fantasy IV. Not much else is known at the moment. Unfortunately, there was no exact release date announced and, seeing as this was the first we’ve heard of the game, it probably will not be ready until at least summer 2011. More info as it’s released.
UPDATE: Game title is Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy.

New features, such as IC Cards, mobile web integration, and new battle systems have been announced for Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS. IC Cards have been a part of arcade games in Japan for a while, but it’s the first time it will be integrated with the Gundam VS series. It will track player progress and records. However, there is no word yet on whether this will mean customizable mobile suits, like customizable characters in Tekken 6 or Super Street Fighter IV. Mobile web integration will allow players to create an online profile and connect their IC cards to it. Extreme VS will retain the NEXT Dash in Gundam VS NEXT and add in new “Extreme Action” and “Awakening” abilities. Not much about what these will do exactly. More info inside.
An update to the arcade version of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift will make an appearance at the Amusement Machine Show.

Most likely, the updated version will include console downloadable characters, rather than balance changes and new features like those in Continuum Shift. More after the jump.
