New SEGA arcade (?) game incoming: Code of Joker

Just a snazzy looking logo at present with the date set for February 1st. If I had to guess it would probably be some sort of card based arcade title, but here's hoping it's something a bit more traditional and finally gets ported to consoles in December 20&Never.

On a more serious note, with the Japanese Amusement Expo less than a month away (And SEGA holding the biggest booth A-22 http://www.jaepo.jp/pdf/map.pdf) we can expect to start seeing a few more arcade titles announced.

I'm sure that whatever this is it will just be another "thing" that I never get a chance to see, touch, or play.

The mainstream has won. All I have left is Atlus.

Go play some indy games from GOG or something, don't expect anything quirky to come from retail games for a while, unless a business is purposely trying to bankrupt themselves for tax cuts.

My Japanese is super, super limited but it sounds like they're having a Location Test soon for whatever this game may be. Probably would take place at that Japan Entertainment Expo. So there's credence to this idea that it may be an Arcade game or a card game still yet, I haven't heard of other games besides arcade fighters that had location tests before but it's just a thought.

Just because it refers to the Joker card doesn't mean its going to be a card turned based game.

I agree, it's clearly going to be a Batman game.

Famitsu has revealed that the game is...

A digital card game for arcade and mobile phones? What? Such a waste of a good logo *sigh*

This game is an arcade game. yes, it plays with digital cards, maybe gameplay like "Key of Avalon", but this is not a mobile phone game.

You know what "aime card" is? It's a card for saving player's data use with some arcade titles by Sega.

And you can check your aime card data through a mobile phone service, so you don't have to go to arcade just for check some data.

"Code of Joker" supports using "aime card" to saving data, that's why you can see the word "携帯電話"(mobile phone) in the Famitsu report.

Anyway, I don't know what game "Code of Joker" will be. But I think it will not to be like shitty mobage or gree card games.
