Weekly Games/Toys update: A.C.E. 2, Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 2, Rumble Roses XX, Naruto: Narutimett Portable, Xenosaga I-II, Capcom Classics Ending Collection DVD, Ibara Figure Collection Vol. 2+3 & more


Welcome to this week's Games & Toys update, our Thursday summary, where we are reviewing all related items released during the last 7 days.

The month of March (which is also the last month in the financial year for companies in Japan) has ended with an impressive number of more than 50 video game releases.

The hottest PlayStation2™ releases have been Banpresto's Mech game A.C.E. Another Century's Episode 2, Falcom/Taito's RPG Ys V - Lost Kevin, Kingdom of Sand, Irem's disaster survival game Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 2: Itetsuita Kioku Tachi (Japanese/Asia) and Spike's budget Shinobido Takumi.

For Xbox360™ we've got Konami's girl wrestler Rumble Roses XX (US/Japanese), Taito's Over G: Energy Airforce and an Asian version from Ubisoft's Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII.

The most interesting handheld release in this week has been Bandai's PSP™ Anime Fighting/RPG game Naruto: Narutimett Portable, followed by Namco's Xenosaga I-II for Nintendo DS™.

Video game nostalgics should check out the Capcom Classics Ending Collection DVD release (strongly limited). Also in stock in this week are a number of Nintendo DS™ (Lite) bags & pouches as well as interesting new toy releases, such as the second & third volume of Cave's Ibara Figure Collection.
