The sun returns: Okami: Zekkeiban, New Super Mario Bros. 2, SD Gundam G Generation Overworld, Ys: Celceta no Jukai, Sleeping Dogs, Dead Island Riptide, Borderlands 2 & more! - in New Games available for Pre-Order!



Welcome to our Weekly Pre-order Games news. Keep yourself abreast, read up on games that are just announced for release. The wolf returns in Okami HD, the Pipe Cleaner brothers are off to collect their 1 million coins in New Super Mario Brother 2, the Gundams take to the air in G Generation Overworld, and Adol ventures into Ys: Celceta no Jukai.

Pick up the paint brush and welcome the wolf goddess. Amaterasu is making her debut on the PlayStation3 in Okami HD. The award winning game is upgraded. Every screen is in HD, so mundane scenes become pretty, while spectacular scenes become heart-stoppingly beautiful. The colours are brighter, and the expressions on the characters become richer.

Drawing with a Move controller helps you sink further into the world of brushes and ink. However, gamers are free to use the Dual Shock controllers if they are more accustomed to that. The game also supports the trophy system, so show the world your progress.

The e-capcom edition comes with a snow globe. The unforgettable scene where Amaterasu descends to the world is printed into the player's memory. Now they can put that memory on display. Give the snow globe a shake to see the flutter of the sakura petals.

It's time for Amaterasu to shine again. The wolf comes in November:

Mario and Luigi are back, and this time, their task is to collect a million coins. Super Mario Brothers 2 is a continuation of the DS game released in 2006. Familiar characters and props, such as the Super Leaf are back.

Transform the pipe cleaner into a raccoon or all sorts of creatures to make your coin collection as exciting as possible. Make the Golden Flower bloom, put on the ring to turn your enemies into coins, and put on the block mask to generate coins when the pipe cleaners run.

There are more mini-games. Collect as much coins as you can in just one life span in the Coin Rush Mode. And when you are dealing extra challenging stages, ask your brother to come help you out as Luigi.

Jump and get that coin, New Super Mario Bros. 2 comes in August:

The G Generation series is known for being inclusive. Gundams from the earliest TV series join hands with the Unicorn Gundam to bring you an intergalactic war. For the first time in the series' history, the game introduces a double story mode.

In the World Tour Mode, gamers get some hands-on experience with the wars they have seen on TV. And in the World Core Mode, for every mission the gamers complete, they are one step closer to revealing the secrets in the world system.

Powerful secret Gundams are available of course, and the new master skill system gives players the chance to wipe out the battle field with one attack. Gamers can execute one move that can turn the battlefield around to their favour. However, to fire it again, they will have to go back to the mother ship to recharge. Take it into account when tactics are planned.

Go to war with the Gundams this September:

SD Gundam G Generation OverworldJPN US$ 54.99
