Fast paced games and music, featuring Karous Wii, beatmania IIDX 15 DJ Troopers OST, Ayumi Hamasaki's Mirrorcle World, YUI's I Loved Yesterday & more


Karous is a shooting game taken from the arcade, previously remade for Dreamcast™ and now for Nintendo Wii™. Two tribes, the Fura who lives in the skies and Redin, who lives on land have always been at war. To the residents of Fura, the people of Redin are dangerous beings who are jealous of their advanced state of civilization and are aiming to overtake them.

During a battle between these two tribes, Karous, a mix-blooded child of Fura and Redin lost both of her parents. According to her father's last words, she is to search for the “blood of god”. Without an idea of what the “blood of god” is nor the complications involved in her own bloodline, she travels to Redin only to stumble upon the forbidden plans that involves people of both tribes.

Karous Wii utilizes the Wii system by including weapons such as a shield, a sword and a gun. Although it is a shooter, the sword is the highlight of the game. By swinging the Wiimote control in your hand, slash at the enemies on screen to deal critical damage. Get used to these weapons, as your chances of survival depends on them.

Aside from Karous, two other classic games, Chaos Field and Radilgy from the Milestone shooter series are included in the package. Both Chaos field and Radilgy are popular games that have been converted to multiple platforms. Chaos Field started out as an arcade game, but is then taken and remade for Dreamcast™, PlayStation2™ and Gamecube™. Likewise, Radilgy debutted as an arcade game, but was soon remade for Dreamcast™, Gamecube™ and PlayStation2™.

This single celebrates the tenth year anniversary of Hamasaki Ayumi's debut. Hamasaki Ayumi is known to be the Madonna of the Japanese music industry. No matter whether she is garbed in black leather or white lace, her bold sense of style has always appealed to the public, be they interested in rock music or not. This single, though, highlights her maturation. The lyrics of the song are about a general feeling of disillusionment with the society, and it sears into a person's mind along with the piercing beat.

Aside from the sensational first track, her brand new single also contains a remix of her first release YOU from ten years ago.
