Expanding war zones: Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, Just Dance 3, Totomono. Final, Clock Zero Portable, Forza Motorsport 4, Rune Factory, DR2: Off the Record & more! - in Weekly Games Update!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Quite a few adrenaline pumping games came today: engage in a dogfight in Ace Combat, dance away the calories in Just Dance 3 and Just Dance Wii and graduate from the magical school in Totomono Final.

From the publisher: Developed by the Project Aces team, ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON intensifies the franchise, escalating combat to the next level with aircraft that are literally torn apart, spewing oil and debris across the sky.

Players will engage in combat across the globe, dodging skyscrapers, and turning their enemies into fiery supersonic debris in both single player and online multiplayer. Never before has combat been so fast and in-your-face.

Written by New York Times Best Seller and military author Jim DeFelice, players will experience an engaging war drama spanning real-world locations across the globe.

The air combat spreads to the home consoles.
