Join the TV crew to investigate the deadly Hanuda village in Siren, plunder treasure in Wario Land Shake, enjoy more action with Katekyoo Reborn Hyper, enter the boxing ring in Don King Presents: Prize Fighter & much much more!


From the publisher: An American TV crew has arrived in Japan to film an expose on the legend of the “vanished village.” Controlling seven different playable characters, the player must uncover the mystery behind the curse that grips the eerie village of Hanuda.

The unique “sight jack” system allows the player to see from the point of view of the Shibito, or living dead, to avoid their detection or watch as they close in on the player and companions. Intense graphics, realistic character animation, and a gritty film-like graphical presentation add to the horror of Siren: Blood Curse.

SIREN: New Translation (aka. Siren Blood Curse) is available for PlayStation3™ this week as both Japanese and Asian versions. These versions are completely bilingual [English/Japanese] and for the sake of all collectors are available as Blu-ray disc release editions.

Players shake the Wii Remote to help Wario take down his enemies, empty bags of treasure or cause earthquakes. Best of all, there are numerous stages each offering multiple missions to keep players coming back again and again to unlock everything, collect more coins or just improve their best times.

Join the lovable, selfish and greedy anti-hero Wario on his quests in Wario Land Shake. The game is available on Nintendo Wii™ as a NTSC J encoded Japanese version for US$ 59.90.
