Otomedius Gorgeous is a shooter that allows you the exhilaration of wielding hi-tech weaponry as a pretty pilot.

The game places much emphasis on network game play and comes in several modes that makes use of the Xbox360's facilities. There are two major modes, the original mode and the gorgeous mode.

Original mode is based on its arcade predecessor, with 4 stages, each with a different level of difficulty, choose three stages out of them and engage in white hot battles. For each battle you participate in, you will receive experience points and new weapons.

Gorgeous mode is instilled with new stages, scenes and plot elements written especially for the home console edition.

Each mode carries three types of game play, a single mode and two network modes. In the single mode, you fight by yourself either in the challenging stages in the original mode or against Konami's bosses in Gorgeous mode.

As for the networking mode, you play either against your friends in the original mode or combine forces with them to fight against the bosses in the gorgeous mode.


Otomedious Gorgeous is available as a Japanse version for Xbox360™ for US$ 68.90 only.

The Hyper stick+Otomedious Gorgeous Konamistyle Limited Edition comes with the game, a controller printed with the Otomedious girls and set of 6 tin badges.

The package is already presold but we expect to have a few spare units when it arrives on Friday, so customers who are interested should check back often.

As the 12th single of Uverworld and the newest opening theme of Gundam 00 Second Season, Hakanaku Mo Eikyu No Kanashi is a song about love, performed in rock style, which the group excels in.

The group wants to bring out the message that love is something which people both seek to understand and reject due to its intensity and weightiness. When people refuse to communicate, love would turn into hate and it's only through trust that people would realize this love.

The love in this song refers to more than romance, it include the emotions between parent and child and the compassion between humans. This message is particularly suitable for Gundam 00 which both portrays the misunderstanding between people and parodies reality so well.

In this twisted world which gives birth to sadness and hate, the song points us to the direction of fleeting love. The single is being released in 3 versions, a Gundam 00 version, a CD+DVD limited edition and a normal edition.
