Team ICO HD Collection Confirmed

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

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.

Valkyria Chronicles 3 To Be Announced

Due to a technical error, Valkyria Chronicles 3’s appearance at Tokyo Game Show (TGS) was revealed early. By replacing different scheduling images on the TGS website the words "Valkyria Chronicles 3: Voice Actor Announcement and Game Presentation" appears. There is no doubt now that there will be another sequel for the series. As of now, since only the presentation has been revealed, there’s no word on the platform as of yet. More after the break.

UPDATE: Valkyria Chronicles 3 will be on the Playstation Portable.

Duodecim Shots Emerge

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.

Gundam Musou 3 Coming Winter

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.

New Features of Pokémon Black and White

Pokémon Black and Pokemon White are about to be released in Japan and some changes from previous. The game will also have major graphical change with over 600 different pokémon, each having individually created animations. Black and White will most likely be the greatest Pokémon game to date and with so many Pokémon to collect; it will probably keep Pokémon heads playing for many years to come – or at least until the next title releases.

Details Revealed for Criminal Girls

Recent details on Nippon Ichi Software’s (NIS) new game, Criminal Girls, have been released. Four girls have been introduced: Ran, Yuko, Sako, and Shin. Each girl has a certain personality based on sin they have been committed. In addition, the girls are also voiced by an array of Japanese talents. Gamers in North America probably won't get a chance to hear them, unless NIS decides to add Japanese voiceovers. Criminal Girls is turning out to be an interesting take on the RPG genre, combining signature NIS gameplay and an absurd amount of fan service.

Edgeworth Continues with More Investigations

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.

Final Fantasy Legends Job System Unveiled

With the release of Final Fantasy Legends in Japan, the unique job system has been revealed. As in many Final Fantasy games, players can switch between various jobs like warrior, monk, and mage; however, unlike those games, Final Fantasy Legends allows players to retain skills from various jobs. As gamers battle through the story, they obtain ability points (AP). The more AP players gain, the more skills they will learn. This unique job system will allow players to customize their characters, regardless of job limitations.

More Dissidia in 2011

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.
