From the publisher: Just like Hotel Dusk: Room 215, the game is held vertically like a book. Last Window introduces the Ignore feature to the series. This feature allows player to let go the lines of questioning they don't find useful.

Ignoring too many lines of questioning, as well as not ignoring enough, may cause an early game over. A significant new story-based feature is the in-game novel Last Window.

Every time a chapter of the game is cleared, a new chapter in the Last Window book is made available. The contents of the book complements the game's story, and they can be influenced by the decisions the player makes.

Use your PlayStation® Move motion controller as a paddle in table tennis as you conduct high speed rapid exchanges against your challenger while you employ a variety of strategies and tactics to win; or ignite the arena and use your PlayStation® Move motion controller as a sword and swing your arm forward to blast your opponent right out of the ring.

The father and son team Son Goku and Son Gohan are here to show their Saiyan powers. Everything about them are steely, from the bulging muscles, the powerful sinewy lines and the spiky hair. The team is burning the ki around them. To display this aura realistically, the developers painted a layer of varnish over the figures, just shine a light on them to see them glow.

Everything is sculpted loyally according to Toriyama Akira's designs. The Goku is taller, as the legendary Saiyan who saved the world numerous times, he has a majestic presence. Gohan, his son is just as serious about his duties, but his face retains the childlike roundness that Goku used to have as a kid.

The figures are available today:

Capture these pirates and you'll be rich, but make sure you come out of the ordeal alive. We have the charming and laid back Trafalga Law and the much more flamboyant Eustass Captain Kid. Trafalga is the even tempered one with a smile that never leaves his face. Yet, keep an eye on his hands, for he could dislocate a person's body with a few moves, and while you're at it, admire his tattoos.

Eustass Captain Kid is a sight to behold. He has his lips and nails painted like a death metal artist and wears an old fur coat that seems to have come from some very bloodthirsty animal. This look suit him too well, for he will slay anyone who dared insult him or cross his path, with an evil grin on his face, he is ready to taunt his opponents.

Besides Trafalga and Eustass, we another version of Luffy, this time, in a denim vest that matches his trunks. The vest gives Luffy a more rugged appearance, the developers painted a layer of varnish and tinted the blue with yellow to create the stone washing effect. If you missed the Straw Hat captain, here is another chance to grab him.

The three supernovas are available today for:

The collaboration between Yamashita Shunya and Yoshizawa Mizumasa is a huge hit, one of their masterpieces was Ayanami Rei from Creator's Labo. This version of Rei is not a mere re-run, but contains the adjustments done by the two artists.

The package comes an extra head part, you can re-create the scenes where Rei get's all bandaged up. Besides the head, the revealing pilot suit gets two shoulder guards.

Everyone who weren't able to get the first Rei, try to get your hands on this new version.
