The Japanese videogame publication Famitsu has announced that the Kingdom Hearts franchise will open an online PC browser game to celebrate the series’ 10th anniversary. In the game, titled Kingdom Hearts Chi, players directly control the protagonist as they travel through various Disney worlds. Players can also engage in card-based battles, along with their friends. This game is the first of the franchise to be available as an online PC game, with the series usually releasing PlayStation titles.
The latest franchise release for the PS3, Kingdom Hearts -HD 1.5 Remix-, will come with a code for a “Handy Set”, which is usable in Kingdom Hearts Chi. The set will come with a Rare+ Sora card, 20,000 Munny, and 4,000 card-draw points. And those who purchase the game on Square Enix’s e-STORE will also receive a code to obtain a “Battle Support Set”, containing a Rare+ Riku card, 10 potions, and 10 ethers.
Phoenix Wright is back and he’s making his way to the 3DS.

The latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed that the fifth Ace Attorney game – set to be released on 3DS – will see a return from the all-famous Attorney Phoenix Wright, after he took a short break from the courtroom to concede to newbie Apollo Justice.
Although there is no set release date for the new title as of yet, Phoenix Wright apparently also has a mysterious new female partner who serves as a “central figure in the game”.
The site Andriasang suggests that the in-game characters will be in full 3D, with the lower screen on the 3DS showing icons for facial expressions that your characters can use during testimony.
However the mere suggestion of ‘Phoenix Wright is Objecting once more’ – not to mention also having a crossover title on the 3DS with the infamous Professor Layton – will see fans bursting with anticipation over the lawyer with the gravity defying hair.
