Shipping today: Gitaroo-Man Live! (PSP™) and PlayStation2™ budget releases - Super Robot Taisen Alpha 3, Namco x Capcom, Shadow of the Colossus, Genji & more


The hero of the story is U-1, an awkward young elementary school student ridiculed and scorned by his peers. Even his secret flame, Little Piko, despises him. His only friend and companion is his small dog Puma.

But U-1 has a secret--he is the descendent of a legendary hero: Gitaroo-Man! This fated legacy draws him into the middle of a battle between the people of Planet Gitaroo and the evil Grabaren family. Set out to recover the legendary power of Gitaroo and restore peace to your planet!

Gitaroo-Man Live! is a direct port of the original PlayStation2™ game, which was originally released in 2002. Music producer COIL and visual producer 326 have been part of the PSP™ port. The gameplay has been rebalanced and a Duet Mode for wireless 2-plater battles has been added.


An initial shipment of Koei's music action PSP™ game Gitaroo-Man Live! has arrived today. More supply is expected to be available later this week at US$ 48.90.



After more than 2 years, the successor to Banpresto's popular Super Robot Taisen Alpha Series is here. This time, with "Mobile Suite Gundam Seed", "Yuaha-oh Gaogaiga Final" and "Virtual On", another three major series join the foray, making this production the biggest one ever. Join the metal newcomers, overcome the boundaries of galaxies and destroy all evil on this world!

As common for this series, this game uses a turn based chess-like game play. You are taking side of the righteous and exchange blows with the sworn enemies and all evil of the world in order to bring peace to the world again. All robots feature unique moves as seen in the original TV anime.

Super Robot Taisen Alpha 3 includes 32 robot productions. Apart from the new additions, such popular series as "Mobile Suit Gundam", "Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ", "Neon Genesis Evangelion", "Super Dimension Fortress Macross", "Yusha Raiden", "Legendary Giant God Ideon", "Super Bestial Machine God Dancougar" and many more are included.

Apart from standard one-on-one duels, you can organize your robots into 4-robot teams fighting together as a unit. New this time is an "automatic team formation system", where one can use "balance", "power" and "speed" for the computer to determine how to setup the team. If your team has built up excess credits, you can also use more detailed guidelines such as "mobility", "attack strength", "defence strength", "special ability", "special skill", and "will command" to field the remaining robots.


Super Robot Taisen Alpha 3: To the End of the Galaxy is available today as PlayStation2 the Best budget reprint at US$ 39.90 only. Also still available are a few First Print copies at US$ 49.90 as well as the official Hori branded Memory Card at US$ 36.90.

The strategic RPG style game features 3D maps and an animated into sequence done by Production IG. Takuji Kawano, the anime studio behind such masterpieces like Ghost in the Shell and the Tales series anime and more.
