From the publisher: In a jam? Well, all these guys DO is jam! Prepare to rock as these beat masters use their groovy moves to save the day.

The public knows of government agencies like the FBI and CIA, but little is known of this super-secret agency. Code-named “Elite Beat Agents,” these men in black are heroes’ heroes and the coolest group of guys this world has ever known. Of course, according to official records, they do not exist.

Their leader, an ex-CIA agent named Commander Kahn, scans the world for cries of help. When he finds one, he dispatches the agents, who assist their targets by performing a song and dance. The hypnotic nature of their rocking revives the targets with “Groovy” energy that boosts their willpower and helps them overcome their obstacles.

Every stage is presented in a storyline fashion. All stages share similar basic elements and game flow: The player gets introduced to the target’s problem in a comical intro. Commander Kahn dispatches the agents to the scene. The agents arrive in a special “Beat Transport” that is tailor-made for the situation. The song starts as the agents and player meet the target. By tapping and tracing patterns that appear on-screen, players play along with the song’s rhythm. The animated story changes depending on how well the player performs. After each section, the player gets judged. Depending on the Elite-o-meter’s judgment, the story will go well or poorly. If the player makes it though the whole song, he or she will be judged on the whole thing and get one of three endings.


Nintendo's rhythm action game Elite Beat Agents is now available as US release version at US$ 39.90 only. The game has been released in Japan some time ago under the name Ouendan. Both versions contain different songs and stories, making each one of them a very unique purchase, not to be missed by any Nintendo DS™ owner.

Game features:
  • US version of the Japanese hot "Ouendan"
  • Contains new songs
  • As the music plays, players tap the screen, trace rhythmic patterns and keep the beat as the story unfolds on the top screen.
  • Every scene is accompanied by rump-shaking tunes, but players have to keep the Elite Beat Agents grooving. The worse players do, the worse the story might end up.
  • Rhythm games have come and gone, but no one has ever seen anything like the Elite Beat Agents. Whether they’re helping a lost dog find its way home or helping a babysitter charm a hunky football player, no crisis is too weird.


From the publisher: Lumines II for the PSP® is the highly anticipated sequel to the extremely addictive puzzle-based video game, Lumines. Take control of squares made of four smaller block pieces that are dropped into the playing field one at a time to form same-color rectangles. The vertical "timeline" sweeps across the playing field from left to right and wipes the same-color rectangles from the playing field. Unmatched blocks pile up, and the game ends when the pile gets to the top of the playing screen. Features mind-blowing graphics and some of the hottest artists from today including Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani, The Chemical Brothers, Beck, Hoobastank, and much more!


Don't miss out on Lumines II for PSP™. Now available as US release version at US$ 39.90 only.



From the publisher: A compilation including enhanced versions of "Power Stone" and "Power Stone 2,". These fast and furious 3D brawlers put a new spin on "last man standing" as characters take each other on in frenzied match ups amidst fully interactive environments. Utilizing a simple control scheme, players can execute standard moves such as punches and kicks but the deeper power struggle comes in the form of "power stones." Fighters vie to collect these gems in order to tip the scales in their favor, as nabbing three will allow them to transform into super fighters that can perform devastating power moves.

In addition, a variety of zany weapons and the ability to use environments in creative ways allow an incredible level of freedom and depth beyond the typical fighting game. Multiplayer support via the PSP® system's ad hoc mode raises the stakes as friends duke it out in frenzied no holds barred battles.


Capcom's Powerstone Collection is now available as US PSP™ release version at US$ 34.90 only.

Game features:
  • Battle Friends Wirelessly!
  • Battle Royale! – 1 to 4 Players.
  • Network Play and Game Sharing.
  • Unlock New Modes of Play, Including an Explosively Bombtastic Bomb-Throwing Contest!
  • New Training Mode to Practice Moves and Weapons.
  • New Weapons and New Strategies.
