Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. This is quite a busy week for gamers - get ready for DJ Max Portable 3 or gather your pals for a game of soccer in Winning Eleven 2011. If you are one of the ambitious people, become the Lord of Arcana, or have fun with the kids and yarn in Keito no Kirby.

Come sway to the rhythm and play out the tempo of the hottest Korean and Japanese pop songs. The best composers are back to contribute their work, look forward to more of: Planetboom, NieN, makou, myagi, DJ Keri, PIA and Vanilla Unity!

Besides new songs and sexy background dancers, the newest installment has the challenging Remix Mode where you get to feel the excitement of being behind the turntables, dominating the beat of the dance floor.

And instead of just pressing buttons, you'll have control of the analogue stick, give it a swing when you're given the cue to change gears.

The Limited Edition boxes contains a twin CD soundtrack, an art book and a special UMD package. The First Print Regular Edition has a different packaging from the other regular Editions.

Due to a delay at the custom clearance, all Limited Editions and approximately half of the First Print Editions will reach after 10 pm today, too late to make the cut of time for the couriers. We will pack them tomorrow early and arrange a pick-up before noon, so that you can get your thumbs moving as soon as possible.

Although both the Limited Editions and the First Print Editions are sold out, the Regular Editions will come on October 25th:

From the publisher: PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2011 is here and will bring digital soccer to the next level. Central to the heart and soul of PES 2011 is the idea of freedom of play.

This freedom invigorates the series with the most advanced set of gamplay improvements ever attempted by the Winning Eleven Production team, coupled with the greatest stride in new content.

The result will be a game that allows total control over every element of play – even online – to give the most lifelike soccer experience next to actually putting on a uniform and taking the field.

Be a slayer, take down massive monsters and win Arcana Stones. Nobody really knows the full extent of these stones' powers, just that whoever have these in their possessions can conquer the world with no opposition.

Create your character, put some armor on him/her and take up missions from the guild houses. You might also want to recruit a team to go with you, since some of the monsters have very thick scales. Run through the dungeons in the forests and caves to face off with these beasts.

The controls are simple, even players who have never picked up a weapon in their lives can get a hang of the game in no time. Once you've created an opening, you can deal your killing moves or ultimate spells and see the most realistic hack and slash effects.

Lord of Arcana is a Square Enix actioner that no body could miss. The US version will come in March 2011:
