Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Like all good weeks for gaming, this week we have monsters, zombies, ghouls and robots. Tales of Innocence upgrades into Tales of Innocence R, Biohazard take zombies on a voyage in Revelations and the robots wage war in Armored Core V. Please note that due to the Chinese Holidays, games that are scheduled to come today may be shipped tomorrow or Monday next week.

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.

Tales of Innocence R is revived on the Sony PS Vita. The Asian version is scheduled to come next week:

Tales of Innocence RASIA N/Asold
Tales of Innocence RJPN US$ 79.991w




From the publisher: Revealing a brand new storyline for the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil®: Revelations sees the return to survival horror, offering a tense and intriguing gameplay experience.

Built from the ground up to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS features, Resident Evil®: Revelations delivers outstanding visuals that bring the fear to life.

The story is set principally on board a supposedly abandoned cruise ship in the Mediterranean. Far from being empty, the ship hides danger around every corner as Jill Valentine explores the confined space of the ship, facing menacing horrors that emerge from the darkness.

Zombies are clawing out of the Nintendo 3DS screens. The US versions are coming in February:

BioHazard: RevelationsJPN US$ 54.991w
Resident Evil: RevelationsUS US$ 23.9924h




Wrap yourself in armor, and pick up the Overed Weapon, something that can turn the battlefield around with just one fire. Armored Core V takes place after Amored Call 4 Call for Answer and will take players away from the clear fields into the cities.

The game focuses more on strategies and tactics than firepower. The developers shrink the mechas to suit the dense urban landscape and enlarge the world map. The stages will be larger, the complex geography will give gamers more tools. Sneak up on an enemy quietly and make use of the various structures.

Put on your armour today. The Asian version comes in March while the US versions come in April:

Head back to the very origins of the franchise and fight the war that explodes across the galaxy. You are the head of the Regiment Bright Noa, and is charged with the mission to protect the White Base. MSG: Mokuba no Kiseki has a more intelligent AI system, so even novice strategists can become pros with its help.

You have taken them to lessons, to auditions and to shows, now you take them to photo shoots. The 4th volume of the Gravure for You series brings producers and idols to the beach. One of the key elements in producing a popular idol is to put some great bikini shots in her portfolio. So pick up your camera now.

Magic merges with bullets in Bullet Butler. The world of Goldrock is filled with machinery, gadgets, and ancient powers. Rick is the half-elf butler of the heiress Thelma. Like all young ladies destined to inherit great fortune and powers, she has all sorts of people after her blood. So pick up your gun and embark on an action filled adventure.
