Weekly Games/Toys update: Japanese Golden Week Holidays, Outrun 2006, Ace Combat Zero, Metal Saga, LostMagic (all US), NDS™ (Lite) accessories, Capcom Figure Collections, He is My Master Figures & 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.

Thanks to the Japanese Golden Week Holidays, it's been a relatively calm week in terms of new releases. As common for this time of the year, there are usually (close to) no new game releases in the land of the rising sun. All newly stocked titles at Play-Asia.com in this week have therefore been games from other regions, such as Asia & US version releases.

Hot US version highlights have been Namco's Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War, Gust/NIS America's Atelier Iris 2 and Success/Atlus' Metal Saga for PlayStation2™ and the handheld titles Guilty Gear Dust Strikers and LostMagic (Nintendo DS™) as well as Sega's Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast for PSP™.

Four new Asian version games have been published, including Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers for Xbox™, Fifa Street 2 and Fight Night Round 3 for PSP™ as well as the PC game Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War Gold Edition.

Additionally, we have stocked a variety of licensed Nintendo DS™ (Lite) accessories, plus a couple of interesting toys.

As usually, here's a summary of all new releases from this week. Scroll down for a preview of the hottest releases following next week.

Top console games will be SNK Playmore's Ryuuko no Ken: Ten-Chi-Jin / Art of Fighting Collection and Bandai's Eureka Seven New Vision for PlayStation2™ as well as Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Major Leagues (PS2™/GameCube™).

Additionally as top handheld game we are expecting Nintendo's highly anticipated New Super Mario Bros.. The game is expected to be in stock as US version release a few days prior official US street date.
