Let's start our Preorder news with something sunny, something colorful. Rune Factory deviates from the usual Harvest Moon series by incorporating the sword and sorcery RPG elements into the gameplay and Rune Factory 3 takes this another step. You can transform into a monster.

No, not a wolf in a full moon night, but a golden Mokomoko, a fluffy lamb.

Maise the amnesiac hero is in the form of a Mokomoko when Cia found him. Not only did she take him in, she lent him farmland and got him ready for an adventure. Defeat monsters in the dungeon, fill the darkest caves with greenery and marry one of the pretty bachelorettes.

Turn yourself into a Mokomoko to win the ladies' favours, what they were unwilling to tell you when you were human, they may tell you when you are a fluffy beast. Just remember to keep this a secret from the ladies.

Rune Factory 3 is scheduled to come out in October 22, preorder it today:

Another Harvest Moon game is scheduled to arrive as a translated and localized version. Get along with the boys and the different animals on a green island. The game is coming in November:

Kamen Riders is another extremely colorful game. As heroes of the famous children's television show, these riders are not only the representation of justice, but are dressed in all sort of costumes with different abilities. Utilize the potential of your suit and go against all the bizarre looking monsters you meet via the TV screen.

Explore the strange land Ventara as one of the thirteen riders, fight the hordes of monsters that the evil lord throws in your path. General Xaviax is planning something, and you are the only one who could stop him. Hone your fighting skills.

More monsters are coming, these bizarre beings are wreaking havoc everywhere and the world of Eldar needs you. Take up one of the vast range of jobs offered, utilize the skills you have learned and set forth to defeat the spirit king before he, and his mobs rips the land apart.

Live high fantasy style, as the Chosen One, you are to reunite the races that has fallen apart over the centuries and lead them against your opponents. Fear not, as heroes no longer fights alone, make use of the networking facilities of your console and ask a friend to help out.

Just as destructive as the beasts that roams Eldar, but every bit cuter are the Higurashi cast. Rena found a mirror in the rubbish heap where she plays treasure hunting, only to find out that it's a magical talisman that would grant its owner any wish. So here comes the ax and bat wielding and all the monstrous cuteness.

Besides the usual cast, the mirror brings in more people to the Hinamizawa village. Worry not, just plow them down. With more original plot lines and action, this blend of cheerful cuteness and violence is going to blow you away.

The last shred of color and cuteness falls away when we reach the Undead Knights. After being on the side of justice for so many games, don't you want to be on the side of the monsters for once? Get used to the sight of the foam spitting zombies. You have to manage this horror inducing team and lead them to your conquests.

Rip the land apart, channel your anger and violence through the heavy metal soundtrack. Take a deep breath and get ready for this burst of power. Take vengence against the human king.
