Fly to the Zone: Zone of Enders HD, Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, IdolMaster Shiny Festa, Danboru Senki W, Muv-Luv & much more! - in Weekly Games Update!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring new product arrivals from the last seven days. Pilot your robot to the Zone of Enders, jump into the world of darkness in Dark Souls and Prepare to Die. After your revival, come to the tropical islands to join the IdolMaster Shiny Festa concerts.

Created by Kojima Hideo, Zone of Enders whipped up a stir when it was first released in 2001. The speedy action brings players right into the game universe. The controls are so easy to master that even gamers completely new to the mecha genre can plunge straight into the battle.

Jehuty, one of the most famous giant robots is spectacular, and there are many other mechas waiting to be piloted. The fighting and the anime clips merge together so smoothly that the player stays grounded during the transitions.

The Zone of Enders HD includes both games. Follow Leo and discover the orbital frames in the first instalment, then join Dingo and Jehuty in battle in the sequel. The graphics are enhanced to HD quality, the screens running at 60 frames per second. The interface and the sounds are all upgraded and the system supports Trophies.

The Premium Packages comes with a ZOE Chronicle Book, Reboot Book, a Reboot Storyboard Book, and a soundtrack CD.
