Capcom announces major expansion to Dragon’s Dogma coming next year

Whether it’s pride in a new property doing well or Capcom being Capcom, the publisher has big plans for the future of Dragon’s Dogma. The company announced that two new game modes will be available to download by the end of the year: Hard Mode and Speedrun Mode. Best of all, both modes will be free.

Looking further ahead, Capcom announced that the first “major expansion” for the game will be released in 2013. Capcom is still keeping the details close to their chest (they wouldn’t even confirm if it’ll be DLC or a retail release), but they did reveal that it’ll be titled Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. They also unveiled the trailer embedded above, so check it out.

Injustice: Gods Among Us gets a new trailer and an April 2013 release date

Just in time for the Tokyo Game Show, Warner Bros. Games and developer NetherRealm Studios have released the latest trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

This DC Comics-derived fighting game brings together Batman, Superman, Catwoman, Nightwing, Harley Quinn, and more in a cataclysmic fight to the death, much like NetherRealm’s last game, the rebooted Mortal Kombat.

Injustice: Gods Among Us will be released for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U in April 2013, exactly two years after Mortal Kombat first graced store shelves.

Square Enix bringing Kingdom Hearts HD Remix to PS3 in Japan

Square Enix just announced a Kingdom Hearts HD collection at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, but it’s not what you think. Titled Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix, the compilation will pull together HD versions of Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix (the only-in-Japan “Director’s Cut” of the first game) and the two “bridge” games that followed, Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days.

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix will be released in 2013 exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and, right now, the game has only been announced for the Japanese market. Hopefully, Square Enix will realize that American PS3 players love HD remakes as well.

Sony announces an even slimmer PS3 and Uncharted 3 GOTY bundle

As expected (by pretty much everyone), Sony has announced an even smaller and slimmer PlayStation 3 system at a pre-Tokyo Game Show event. The new rendition of the console looks very similar to the current PS3 Slim, but it now sports a ridged top. While retaining the same shape, the system itself is approximately 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current PS3.

The new PS3 will be available on September 25 as part of an Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – Game of the Year Edition bundle. Priced at $269.99, it will include a 250GB hard drive and a voucher for more than $30 worth of bonus digital content to the free-to-play title Dust 514.

IF you already own a PS3 and are just interested in purchasing the Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – Game of the Year Edition, it’ll also be available on September 25 for a retail price of $39.99.

The even slimmer PS3 will also be available as part of an Assassin’s Creed III bundle on October 30. That package will include a 500GB hard drive and four exclusive Assassin’s Creed III levels.

Phoenix Wright returns in Ace Attorney 5 for 3DS

Phoenix Wright is back! A report in the latest issue of Famitsu (translated by Andriasang) has revealed that the crafty lawyer will be returning to portable gaming devices in Ace Attorney 5.

Ace Attorney 5 will be available for the 3DS and will see the return of Phoenix Wright as the main character. Wright was last seen as the star of the series in 2007’s Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations.

Few details about the game were revealed, but we do know that it takes place one year after Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, a courtroom explosion figures prominently in the beginning of the game, and “a mysterious girl in yellow clothing” will be helping Phoenix.

A playable demo of Ace Attorney 5 will make an appearance at the Tokyo Game Show later this month, and hopefully a US release date will be announced soon.
