From the publisher: With survival in a post-apocalyptic world as the theme, the use of a new experiential system with the playing style affecting the outward appearance of the character, and created by the famous game company Square Enix, this all new action RPG blockbuster is about to make its grand debut!

In this closed world known as "world within the sphere", you find yourself in situations where conflicts cannot be avoided. In order to live on, let's fight! Then absorb the codes (DNA) of the vanquished and evolve further!

Besides the evolution of the hand, you can also learn or change freely the character's abilities. In the process of tackling the various stages, you can be awarded different points according to the performance, and these points can be used to enhance four character abilities, "Attack", "Life", "Energy" and "Defense".


Square-Enix's Code Age Commanders for PlayStation2™ is in stock today, shipping as Asia release version at US$ 59.90 only. The Japanese version will be available later this week. An Original Soundtrack is scheduled for next week.



From the publisher: Serph, leader of the Embryon, wanders aimlessly through the lifeless streets before him. In the Junkyard, his tribe fought a gruesome war, hoping the light of heaven would relieve their suffering. In the end, Serph’s world vanished, along with the comrades who stood by him. All that awaited him in Nirvana were endless streets littered with the silent remains of human statues.

The promised land was nothing but a new hell.

Atlus' dark themed Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2 PlayStation2™ RPG is now available as US release version at US$ 59.90.



From the publisher: The legendary Castlevania franchise returns to the next generation of handheld gaming systems. Set in the year 2036, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow picks up one year after the events of Aria of Sorrow (GBA). A mysterious cult, unhappy that Soma Cruz failed to fulfill his destiny and become the reincarnation of Dracula, seeks to sacrifice our hero so it can bring about a new dark lord. Rather than wait for his enemies to come to him, Soma decides to go on the offensive, which leads him to an all-too-familiar castle.

Following in the footsteps of recent Castlevania games, the series' DS debut features RPG elements and a labyrinthine map rife with secrets and special weapons. Aria of Sorrow's heralded Tactical Soul system returns as well, allowing you to learn new powers and abilities by capturing the souls of your vanquished foes.

As you control the action on the bottom screen, the top screen will display enemy and player information or a map that's updated in real time as you explore the castle. While that may not sound like the most glamorous use of the dual screens, Castlevania disciples can attest to how valuable a persistent view of the map will be when you're trying to find a secret room or remember the location of that previously unreachable platform.

The touch screen also plays a crucial role in smashing crystal blocks that stand in your path, and in drawing Magic Seals to banish bosses. Konami has also revealed that certain Tactical Souls will enable you to perform location-based attacks via the stylus. In some rooms, you'll even be able to use the stylus to warp to different locations in the castle.


Konami's Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow for Nintendo DS™ is shipping as US release version at US$ 44.90 only.



From the publisher: Trauma Center: Under the Knife lets YOU play doctor. The stylus will be your scalpel as you make incisions, anesthetize problem areas, remove tumors, monitor vital signs, apply bandages, and more! Deal with high-stress situations and human drama between appointments, but keep a cool head, or you’ll be out on the street.

Game features:
  • Feel the pressure of each tense, challenging operation!
  • Operate on a wide variety of patients in story mode, then return later and try to beat your high scores!
  • Experience a compelling story with intriguing characters!
  • Use your applied skills to solve the puzzle of each surgery!
  • Detailed graphics bring the human body to life!
