After the previously released Kaido and Shutokou Battle racing series, Genki is combining elements from both of them into a new line of high-speed Japanese driving titles.

Racing Battle: C1 Grand Prix has adopted the SP Battle system from the Shutokou Battle series and lets you race against up to six opponents at once in closed-circuit races. Of course, also in this series you have the ability to modify and boost up your Japanese sports car into the smallest detail. One of the race courses included in the game is the Tsukuba Circuit from Japan.

Genki's Racing Battle: C1 Grand Prix is in stock today shipping at US$ 64.90. An Original Soundtrack album is due for release on June 1st.




Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana 2 is the sequel to last year's popular Atelier RPG title. This time the game features two main characters, a boy named Feld and a girl named Wiese. Throughout the game they encounter a young alchemist called Iris (who is not the same Iris compared to the previous title though).

A new Dual Scenario System has been added to the game. The two main characters have their own storyline, while progress of the story switches between the two from time to time. Fled's journey is focused on collecting recipes and materials, while Wiese's focus is on collecting items to create magic. This time the game features a new Active Turn Battle System, allowing the battles to be more action oriented instead of turn based.

Aterlier Iris: Eternal Mana 2 is in stock today shipping as regular version (US$ 64.90) as well as Limited Edition (US$ 109 respectively). Both versions ship including a bonus soundtrack album as preorder gift as long as supply last.


Further still available is last year's released Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana and the Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana [Premium Box]. The US Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana release - originally expected in this week as well - has been postponed for a late June/ early July release.
