Weekly Games/Toys Update: Vampire's Rain, The Idolm@ster, Enchant Arm, Taito Memories II Joukan, DDR SuperNOVA, Picross DS, Hotel Dusk: Room 215, Parodius Portable, WoW Burning Crusade & lots more


Welcome to this week's Games & Toys update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days.

The last week in January has been a fantastic release week, with plenty of new and also interesting games. There have been around 50 new releases in Japan, plus a number of good titles from Asian and US territory.

Next generation console highlights this week have been Vampire's Rain and The Idolm@ster (Xbox360™) and From Software's RPG hit Enchant Arm (Japanese / Asia) for PlayStation3™.

The PlayStation2™ remains in a strong market position. Top sellers for this system this week have been Taito Memories II Joukan, Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA (in stock tomorrow), From Software 20th Anniversary: King's Field -Dark Side Box- and lots of budget reprints, including Naruto: Narutimett Hero 3, Final Fantasy X International, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum and more.

The most popular handheld game releases have been Nintendo's Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (Wish Room: Tenshi no Kioku in Japan), Picross DS and Sangokushi Taisen DS (NDS™) as well as Konami's shooting game series Parodius Portable, Salamander Portable and Twinbee Portable for PSP™.

Last but not least, Blizzard's World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Expansion has been leading the PC sales charts (and probably continues to do so for a while).

As usually, here's a summary of all new releases from this week. A preview of coming week's highlights is also listed further below.
