Hunting down enemies: Kisou Ryouhei Gunhound EX, Accel World Stage 02, Love Tore: Bitter Version, The Last Story, Shin Sangoku Musou 6 Empires, Demon Gaze Famitsu Pack & 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 the Kisou Ryouhei Gunhound to change the fate of the world, head into Accel World Stage 02 to serve Kuroyuki-hime and when you're back, join the dance championship in Love Tore Bitter.

A classic robot action is revived on the Sony PSP. The 2D Kisou Ryouhei Gunhound was immensely popular during the 90s. The transformation scenes of the robots and the shooting action captured fans who are veterans in the mecha, firearms, and games, in general.

The game takes place in a futuristic world where everyone is scrambling for a new energy source called the Neutronpolymer. Beltonia, a tiny country that is moving toward democracy is discovered to hold large amounts of Neutronpolymer in their lands.

To prevent the wars from getting out of hand, the authorities send the 9th Kisou Ryouhei regiment, called the Gunhound to the fray. This is a very small team, but their participation in the war efforts will change the path of the whole country.

The Limited Edition comes with a soundtrack and a mini artbook:

However, Kuroyukihime is planning to speed things up even more for them. She has announced her intention to study abroad after graduation, so they have just six more months to push her up to level 10.

During this period, big, chaotic events are happening. The Armour of Disaster is making its appearance and to make things even more complicated, rumours about the legendary gear Brave Stars are floating everywhere. Besides upgrading equipment, Haruyuki has to go and save the Ardour Maiden, join the races and be involved in the collapse of the Crypt Cosmic Circus.
