Call the dogs: Sleeping Dogs, Darksiders II, Monster Hunter 2012 Anniversary, Ragnarok Odyssey Chinese ver., Persona 4 Chinese ver. & more! - in Weekly Games Update!


Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring new product arrivals from the last seven days. The Japanese game developers are enjoying their Obon holidays, so there aren't much Japanese games streaming in. However, this hole is filled by the blockbusters Darksiders II and Sleeping Dogs.

Spend the summer in Hong Kong and battle the triad societies as an undercover cop. Sleeping Dogs makes full use of the unique geographical features of the crowded city to bring you an action adventure you have not experienced before.

Race cars, ambush your enemies between the sky scrapers, and dodge the many people that dot the streets as you utilize your kung-fu moves to take down the bad guys. But all triad gangs have their own moral code, and the line between good and evil is forever blurred here.

One of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse is on his journey to redeem his brother. Death scales the walls to discover new routes to his destination, and he takes up difficult quests to receive special items. The massive arsenal is back, and so is the deep story. Discover what is worse than an Apocalypse in Darksiders II.

Celebrate Monster Hunter's anniversary with the 2012 Premium Pack. The gates are opened for adventurers. Unseal the box to find the book that bears illustration on the monsters, the sound track and the desktop accessories. Developers have also included new sets of in-game armours for you, so unlock them today.

Embark on quests to defeat the mythical giants that troll the land in Ragnarok Odyssey, you are the last barrier between mankind and total annihilation. Chinese speaking gamers can enjoy the deep plot and have more ease navigating the menus. The game makes use of the superior graphical capabilities of the PS Vita, so every fight is spectacular.

Solving a murder case is infinitely easier if you understand the dialogue. Persona 4 is out as a Chinese version, so Chinese speaking sleuths, come into the TV world to arrest the killer before more people end up as corpses on someone's rooftop. There are more spots to explore, another player character, and more enemies. English speaking detectives, your version will come this November.
