Before the sun sets: Atelier Ayesha, Disney Epic Mickey 2, Orgarhythm, K-On! Houkago Live!! HD Version & more! - in New Games available for Pre-Order!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Join a girl to save her workshop and find her sister in Atelier Ayesha. Mickey Mouse and Oswald are carving a new world for themselves in Epic Mickey 2 and the famed game creator Hirai Takeshi combines the tactics and the beat in Orgarhythm.

The cute and comical Atelier series takes on a more serious tone in Atlier Ayesha. The game takes place in an era where Alchemy is coming to an end. Ayesha, an orphan girl sets off to search for her missing sister after her grand father dies.

In her adventures, Ayesha can find several spots where she can synthesize items. The player can decide on a spot as her main base.

Pay extra attention to the item synthesis process. A different item can emerge even when you use the same ingredients. The cauldron and the order at which you add ingredients play a huge part. In this game, 2D drawing and the 3D models merge even closer together, giving gamers an anime experience during the event scenes.

The sun is setting in the era of Alchemy, can you do something about it? Find out this June:

No. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit does not want such a fate, he is joining forces with Mickey to bring gamers into his black and white world. For the first time, gamers can hear the voice of the rabbit.

Existing places in the wasteland are shaken up to reveal brand new spots. There are new music to go with the new contents, and gamers are welcome to pull their best friends into their adventures as Oswald Rabbit, the electricity user. Once the best friend goes away, the AI will resume control of Oswald, ensuring a smooth transition.

Become the god and lead your tribe to war. Your sense of rhythm is your weapon and your strategical thinking is your key to victory. The director, the famed Hirai Takeshi mixes music with strategies in Orgarhythm.

He wants to do away with the preconceptions, just hitting a button when the cue falls is no longer exciting enough. He wants players to get the beat and react intuitively.

To fit with the tone of the game, he used folk music and tracks with an earthy tone, however rock music with strong beats are also widely used. Think one step ahead of your enemies, nail their weakness, defeat them, level up your tribes and learn new skills.

The tactics and the beat, come get both of them this summer. A concrete release schedule will be announced very soon, please use the RSS feeds or the Personal Agent to inform you when the date becomes available:

After taking the girls around with you on your bus rides and train rides, its time to give them a showing on the big screen. The K-ON! After School Live is remastered for the high definition TV.

The characters' every action as well as the flow of the cues remain as smooth as ever. If you own a 3D TV, the girls can jump out of the screen to perform for you.

Share the save data between the PS3 and Sony PSP versions. Jam songs with band members you have met via the ad hoc networking or ad hoc party mode, and what's better, you can connect to even more musicians via the internet.

Enjoy tea and music with the girls this June:
