Last week Chicago Gaming Company mentioned in this Facebook post that they were very excited to announce the next title.  They also mentioned “Game #3 has just received UL and CE certification and we are already in the process of building subassemblies.

CE = Classic Edition
SE = Special Edition
LE = Limited Edition
We can’t wait to see this machine and the new features!
