    A new DS game for 2010: Ghost Trick by Capcom. Interesting to note, the producer is Hironobu Takeshita who produced Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure for Wii and the director is Shu Takum, who directs the Ace Attorney series so this game should be a good one.

    Medabots DS
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Some of us may remember Medabots, an old hit anime from early 2000. Well it looks like they are bringing it back with a new game for the Nintendo DS. (and probably an anime series soon) It looks like it takes place some time after the original series...with a new look. (Which I'm not liking.)

    Persona 3 Portable
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (S.E.E.S) and the battle system get the focus in the latest Weekly Famitsu report of Persona 3 Portable. I'll go into more detail later.

    It was thought to be a fake but this confirms it. No details on this game yet. Will update when more info comes.

    Tales of Graces
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    The scans introduce two new characters to Asbel's team: Pascal, a 22 year old woman genius technician Asbel meets along the course of his journey. She has problems reading the atmosphere in situations and doesn't really choose her words that come out of her mouth. The other character is Malik Caesars. He is Asbel's honored and excellent instructor from the knights' school. He is an adult man who can be both somewhat frank and in composure. His weapons are boomerang-shaped blade. Asbel looks up to Malik as his "ideal self".

    .hack//link interests me but I need more information, also, Pascal looks anorexic and a bit too young for her age.

    Pascal doesn't even look 22, she looks like she is in her teens. That's one thing I don't like about Tales artwork: no matter how old they look they still look young, like lolicons. (The females anyway.)

    Omfg. Medabots???? I lovedddd the game for GBA (Medabots AX Metabee/Rokusho version not the RPG). It was basically a Jump Ultimate Stars on GBA. Those bring back so much memory. I'd totally look forward to the new one.

    Here are some gameplay screens and some artwork for the game. I am not liking the new art style. Seems Metabee and Rokusho make a return with new looks. And yes, its the same Metabee that Ikki owned (you can see in one of the screenshots)

    http://game.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/...903_312609.html

    I'm honestly thinking its the same cast with a different art style cause some of the characters look familiar.

    edit: hmm, looks like a remake of the old medabot on gba, other than different style :| not quite if i like the new style or not, but what the heck, its medabots [​IMG] Hmm,if that's the case, i wonder if rom hackers could just take the script from the gba games and insert them into this?

    hurray, medabots are back, i was wondering when will they return to ds or something. and oO, is that a .hack for DS? that would sound pretty cool.

    Hmm Medabots surely rings a bell...
    Is it that game where you build your own robot from parts and battle other people?
    If so, a DS would be totally awesome!

    That girl in Ghost Trick reminds me alot of Yoko from Gurren Laggen.
    Though the game itself looks rather forgettable.

    It's nice that a new Metabots game is coming out but the new character designs look horrible.

    I think its supposed to be a new design for Ikki...the main protagonist from the original Medabots but I'm not sure.

    I also have a noted history with medabots (RPG not AX and it used to be a reason drag myself out of bed to watch it every morning regardless how late I went in).

    I will however mention there were two GBA RPGs that never saw Western releases and several GB and GBC games. They also have radically different art styles:

    Shingata medarot (compared to the RPG the US saw think differences between pokemon red and blue but with a different art style):
    http://www.advanscene.com/html/Releases/db...ses.php?id=1823
    http://www.advanscene.com/html/Releases/db...ses.php?id=1824

    Medarot Navi:
    This is more a shonen version of medabots/medarot.
    http://www.advanscene.com/html/Releases/db...ses.php?id=0100
    http://www.advanscene.com/html/Releases/db...ses.php?id=0101

    This is closer in art style to the screens posted I would argue although the GB/GBC releases were ever closer.

    All I hope is that they use the potential amount of pieces to make some interesting opponents (a couple of hundred pieces means hundreds of thousands of potential bots- games seemingly had about 50 in all ignoring the ones the player builds).
