Weekly Games/Toys Update: Wii™/PS3™ US launch items, DOA Xtreme 2, Naruto Uzumaki Chronicles, Jump Ultimate Stars, Final Fantasy III, Jeanne D'Arc & lots more


Welcome to this week's Games & Toys update, our weekly summary in which we are sumarizing all new products listed at Play-Asia.com from the last 7 days.

It's been another fantastic week for all video game fans. In the center of all the action has surely been the US launch of Sony's and Nintendo's next generation video game systems. We have stocked up limited supply of interesting launch games, including Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom, Ridge Racer 7, NBA 2K7 (for PS3™) and Trauma Center: Second Opinion, Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Red Steel (for Wii™).

Also in stock today is limited supply of the US version Nintendo Wii (incl. Wii Sports) + The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Bundle Set. Some Wii™/PS3™ titles are currently sold out or on backorder, but we are expecting more supply to arrive during the next couple of days and weeks.

Lots of other interesting titles have been released in Asian territories during this week as well. For Xbox360™ we've got Tecmo's Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 (Asia / Japanese), WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2007, Superman Returns: The Videogame and the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player hardware release.

It's been rather calm in Japan in terms of new PS3™ software, but some highlights for PlayStation2™ have arrived. In stock now are the SNK Playmore budget releases The King of Fighters NeoWave, Twinkle Star Spirits: La Petite Princesse, Konami's GuitarFreaks V2 & DrumMania V2 and J-League Winning Eleven 10 + Europe League '06-'07 as well as limited supply of two new PS2™ consoles (in Pink and Satin Silver color).

Top sellers this week continue on handheld gaming platforms. Titles not to be missed on Nintendo DS™ include Jump Ultimate Stars and Final Fantasy III (US). Interesting PSP™ releases have been Level5/Sony's RPG Jeanne D'Arc (Japanese / Asia) and Riviera: Yakusoku no Chi.

Plenty of additional titles have been published during the last seven days. Check out our summary of all new releases below. And don't forget to scroll down to the bottom for a preview of coming week's hits.
