Welcome to our Weekly Pre-order Games news. Keep yourself abreast, read up on games that are just announced for release. Batches of games are announced this week as the developers get ready for the winter/spring season. We have Tales of Innocence R, Sangoku Musou Next, Frontier Gate and Labyrinth no Kanata.

Embark on a journey to Innocence again on your PlayStation Vita. The revival of the Nintendo DS classic is stunning, the colors are vibrant and the animations are much smoother.

The new game uses the DI LMBS battle system that reflects the gamer's style and skills directly. String combos together and fight intuitively. The touch pad allows gamers to set special skills so they can execute it with one touch.

There is a new character KyuKyu, a self proclaimed archaeologist. See how she adds to the story and what edge she offers during the battles. All scenes in the main scenarios are voiced and Kokia, the singer who performs the theme song of Tales of Innocence is back to write a new song for the game's revival.

The heroic adventures come back in January 2012:

Faster and and even more furious, Sangoku Musou Next delivers players to the very center of warring China. There are more characters, more intuitive controls and speedier battles.

Spot enemies that are approaching and catch them with a gyro-sensor. Use the touch pad to execute a skill of mass destruction when your team is swarmed.

Become the warrior and see the world through his eyes. The first person camera angle merges the player with the story. When enemies get too numerous, ask friends to help, or alternatively, conquer their troops for true dominion. A total of four players can join the game, fight, share information, and win rare items together.

The war starts on PlayStation Vita's launch date - 17th December:

Frontier is a land waiting to be cultivated, it's where everything colorful, dangerous and exciting awaits. Two pioneers are sent from the guild to explore the Frontier.

Some of them are looking for resources, some for knowledge and others for treasures. Each come with a different motive. The partner you choose can lead you to completely different paths of the story. And the people you choose to link with through the adhoc mode can make real differences to your battles.

Swerve to the back of the enemies when you encounter them. This gives you an advantage. The battles are turn based, so string attacks together to form a combo chain or take time to defend and recover wounds. The world is for you to explore.

Frontier Gates open this December:

Frontier GateJPN US$ 27.99




Form the strongest team to defeat the Hagoromo Kitsune. That powerful fox spirit has been devouring people and usurping power since the Heian era, and Rikuo, the leader of Hakki Yayou (the march of a hundred ogres) is the one to defeat her.

Know the powers of your underlings and whip them out during the battle. Shatter, and collect stone fragments to call out the powerful ogres. The girls Yukionna and Yura are your supports, they will lend you a hand when the situation becomes dire and these two will never fail to watch your back.

Being thrust into the position of the head of the group needs some getting used to. Train your character and learn to execute skills in the training mode. And when you become so powerful that you can overwhelm the fox spirit, log online to fight champion teams from across the network.

The fight of a hundred demons start in November:
