Mankind have conquered space travels and have set up colonies in distant planets. With more resources, mankind should prosper, however, the awakening of the ancient evil kingdom put a halt on all things. The war with this enemy causes earth to fall into a food crisis, and so taxes and demand on the colonies rise.

The war that will wipe across the galaxy and all your favorite mecha anime series is breaking out. Take your mecha and become a war hero. Older mecha such as the Gundams in Seed and Destiny, newer ones, such as the Macross F Valkyries and Kurogane no Linbarrel will be available for piloting.

Use your magic and your sword to save the world. You control a team of three people, a half elf who has lost his parents at a young age due to war, a wise giant who seems to be on adventure just for the sake of it and a vampire girl who joins your group with an unknown agenda.

Each of the characters have a different way to fight, the half elf could use both swords and magic, the giant uses his fist and his massive body and the vampire is agile and very fast. Switch them around during battles to gain an advantage over the enemies that attempt to crush you with their numbers.

The free scenario system gives you full control over your own destiny and the pace with which you reveal character stories. Now on the PlayStation 3™, this high fantasy world is more beautiful than ever.

The Premium Box contains the soundtrack, the visual book and the character postcard set.

Tears and Tiara is one of the games that excel both in the dating sim aspect and strategy battle mechanics. After all, all is fair in love and war.

This PSP version makes everything more challenging by including a Devil's Mode, so all of you who have once saved the land, try again to see if you can stand against these powered-up foes.

Get violent in Splatterhouse. Fight with massive, ghoulish monsters and see them bleed. You don't have to bother with statistics, for you see the wounds you created and see how the tissue and bones grow back together during recovery. This gore fest pushes your limits, and is only suitable for gamers with strong stomachs.

9 Hours, 9 People, 9 Doors poses another threat. You are Junpei, a college student with no memory of how you got on the cruise ship, but you find yourself with a group of seemingly unrelated people, all with odd watches strapped to them. Use the hints on the gadgets to figure a way out before the time limit, or everybody drowns.

Never steal bananas from gorillas. Donkey Kong is off on a side scrolling platform adventure to get what belongs to him back. This time, little big brother Diddy joins Donkey. Diddy carries a pouch with useful tools such as peanut guns or jet packs, giving you the ability boost, or if you're playing with a friend, one of you can become Diddy and squeeze into tiny places for special treasures.

You can create your own food in Rune Factory 3 and meet the different people in the village. This time you drop in the strive between the humans and the Univir, and you need both your human form and golden lamb form to restore peace. Don't just slay the monsters this time, get to know them.
