Weekly Games/Toys update: DDR Strike, Bleach: Hanatareshi Yabou, Monster Hunter 2, Final Fantasy Collector's Edition (PS2™), Radilgy (Dreamcast™), Biohazard 2 PC, Mario, Naruto, Nintendogs toys & 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.

It's been an exciting week with a total of roughly 20 new titles published in Japan. The most interesting release in our point of view has been Milestone's Dreamcast™ shooter Radilgy. Despite the rather unique style, which we have been a little pessimistic about, the game plays very fluent. Dreamcast™ fans surely don't wanna miss this one but we also suggest everyone still considering giving it a try.

Additional highlights in this week were mainly published on PlayStation2™, including Konami's home console exclusive dancing simulation Dance Dance Revolution Strike, Sony's anime based RPG Bleach: Hanatareshi Yabou (Japanese/Asia) and Capcom's creature hunting sequel Monster Hunter 2 (regular/Limited Edition). Last but not least, a nice Korean version collectible is going to be released tomorrow, the Final Fantasy Collector's Edition (containing Final Fantasy X International, Final Fantasy X-2 and a number of goodies).

As usually, here's a summary of all new items from this week. Make sure to scroll down for a preview of the hottest titles shipping next week (and yes, there are quite a few).
