In this adventure game directed by Goichi Suda (of Killer 7 fame), you play as Travis Touchdown, a normal guy (with an otaku geek streak to him) who wins a Beam Katana through an online auction and uses the weapon to start a new career as a professional killer.

One day, an assassin named Helter Skelter appears before Travis and the two face off in a battle. Travis emerges victorious and finds himself in the presence of Silvia Christel, a mysterious French woman who claims to be an agent with the UAA. Silvia gives Travis official rank of 11 in the organization. Now, it's up to you to become #1.


Developed by Marvelous Entertainment, No More Heroes for Nintendo Wii™ is shipping today as NTSC/J encoded Japanese release version at US$ 64.90. Today's shipment covers just early preorders, but more supply is confirmed to arrive on Thursday. Ubisoft is about to published the game in the US next February, you can also preorder the US version here.



Arkanoid DS is a remake of Taito's popular arcade game originally developed in 1986. Those who are not familar with this classic, you control the "Vaus", a space vessel that acts as the game's "paddle" which prevents a ball from falling from the playing field, attempting to bounce it against a number of bricks. The ball striking a brick causes the brick to disappear

When all the bricks are gone, the player goes to the next level, where another pattern of bricks appear. There are a number of variations (bricks that have to be hit multiple times, flying enemy ships, etc.) and power-up capsules to enhance the Vaus (expand your Vaus, multiply the number of balls, equip a laser cannon, break directly to the next level, etc), but the gameplay remains the same.

Arkanoid DS features three different single player modes: clear mode, quest mode, and VS computer. The clear mode is the classic stage-by-stage that features 140 levels total. Quest mode allows you to select stages that you've unlocked to complete special objectives and earn game points. The VS mode allows you to clear either all the blocks or blocks of a certain color before your opponent does the same, and this mode can also be played ad hoc against friends.


Taito's Arkanoid DS for Nintendo DS™ is shipping today as Game Only and With Paddle Controller Edition. The controllers are also available separately in limited quantities in silver, pink, black and white.



From the publisher: When a routine mission goes horribly wrong, you find yourself battling an insidious enemy that knows no boundaries. It's up to you to terminate an extremist plot aimed at throwing the world into global chaos. Only an underground gun-for-hire can succeed in a war this dirty!

The saga continues with the organization known as the shop where players take on the role of a hired mercenary. Players will experience all the thrills and dangers of mercenary combat blasting through high intensity combat situations in the world's most dangerous hotspots in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. Using any means necessary, players will need to uncover a complex plot and defeat an extremist organization determined to throw the world into global conflict. Failure is not an option.
