Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. This week gamers can play among the stars in Sayonara no Tsubasa, solve a murder and battle a witch with logic in Umineko no Naku Koro ni Portable 1 and engage in the ultimate Ninja wars in Narutimate Impact.

The songs and the gunfire never cease. Sayonara no Tsubasa finishes the Macross Frontier movie series. The Hybrid Pack combines the HD movie and the game in one blu-ray disc, so gamers and anime fans can enjoy two types of entertainment in one package.

The drama starts three months after the end of the first movie, watch it to see how the war might end in the new story, and whether Alto can resolve the love triangle.

Plot twists and songs are generously added to the movie along with great visuals. And if the movie makes you want to pilot your own mecha, do so in the game. Valkyrie transformations and the depth of the galaxy has never been so beautiful.

Both Regular and Limited Editions come with a 48 page booklet. The Limited Edition contains a set of Blu-ray disc size posters, a mini pamphlet, a mini artbook, the script and a custom theme download code.
