Today is all about the battlefields, Laevatein Tactics is an orthodox SRPG where brains are just as important as muscles. There are quite a bit of monsters as well, from the Dragon Quest Slimes to the blood thirsty Locusts in Gears of War, you are in for a lot of struggle.

From the publisher: The Story So Far…

When a strange girl hands Ernesto, the young prince of Valencia, a mysterious sword and tells him to save his friends, he thinks nothing of using the magical blade to fight off an undead attack.

Little does he know that such a small choice will spark a war that will rage across the continent of Yulamecca and beyond…

“Hero’s Saga Laevatein Tactics really brings back the spirit of SRPGs of old,” said Frank “Bo” deWindt II, Project Lead, Aksys Games.

“You can definitely see bits and pieces of many SRPGs, like Ogre Battle and Tactics Ogre, lending their influence to help inspire a stellar game.”

The orthodox fantasy SRPG is here, Hero's Saga: Laevatein Tactics is available on Nintendo DS™:

Wonderful as paper weight and ornaments, these mercurial monsters are here to take over your empty spaces. Glinting beautifully under lights, they are perfect for the upcoming Christmas season. Put them on the mantel piece, in between the holly leaves and mistletoes. They fit quite nicely under the desktop Christmas trees as well.

Hold a blob of silver in your hands and surprise your family with the happy little creature, they are quite heavy and feel very much like the real metal. Line them up with your other collections and place other SD characters about it to emphasize cuteness. Please do not put it anywhere near a window, though where it might fall and injure passersby.

More glasses for your collection, the Gurren Lagaan glasses come as twins. Colorful, sharp and cool, these glasses make your drinks even tastier and your cupboard even more like a collection of rare toys. One package contains the Yakuza bunny and the fire symbol, the other has the blind moose and the skull.

Standing at 9 cm, these glasses are quite small and are perfect as dessert containers. Due to their small size, they encourage you to take more breaks to the kitchen to refill, which is good, as it forces you to leave your sofa. Some excercises are good for even the most devoted gamers.

The plush is quite plump, you can use it as a cushion for your sore back or as a practical ornament at the back seat of your car. This is the first time when a weapon is so friendly

Cute and fun, this drill plush is available for:

Large heads, large eyes and rounded cheeks, everyone in Gurren Lagann are super deformed and absolutely adorable. Nia and Yoko have had their moments, Kamina and Simon two of the lesser appreciated characters show that they are not mere machines to drive the plot forward. Viral, the suprisingly popular villain turned hero also gets super deformed so that his fans can fuss over him.

Mecha could be a lot of things, but seldom are they cute. Yet, there are exceptions, there are SD Gundams, now there are SD Guren Laganns and King Kitans. This series also include Gozoo and Aga, two ghoulish mecha that won't even look out of place in a Halloween party.

Marcus Fenix gets enough figures, it's now time for the spotlight to go to the lesser appreciated characters, from both the COG and Locust camps. First to come is Hoffman, the highest commander in the COG organization, grim and sharp eyed, this old man is a force to reckon with, especially when he has his Lancer rifle in his hand.

COG soldiers are everywhere in the game, yet you never knew who was who. They, however, are vital to the successes of missions. Here we show our apprecieation to these nameless and faceless uniformed soldiers. The package includes their Gnasher and Lancer accessories. With these in hand, the soldier are ready to enter battle anytime.

Here is another type of Locust. Large and heavy, these giants have little brains and big muscles and provided quite a bit of trouble for the COG soldiers. The weight of the figure reflects the horror these monsters are capable of and their unsatiable hunger. Look at the bloodied mouth and feel their heavy weight in your hands.

The Beast Rider is another type of Locust, this one has a bit more brains and control. Riding the flying Reavers and the Blood Mounts, this cavalry unit is absolutely deadly. The rusty red of the armor is the direct opposite to the sky blue of the COG soldiers. With the Hammer Burst in hand, this creature is ready to heat up your battle.
