Weekly Games Update: A small period of calm - Mario & Luigi Bowser Inside Stories, Halo 3 ODST, Katamari Forever, Naruto: Ninja Destiny 2, Bleach 3rd Phantom, Madcatz Controllers & more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. After last week's tsunami of games, this week is much calmer. Fear not, however, there are still some remarkable adventures for you, travel through Bowser's tummy in Mario & Luigi, carry out top secret missions in Halo 3 ODST and roll a ball in Katamari Forever.

Discover the truth behind the vicious attack on the city of New Mombasa. Although the new ODST team doesn't have the same supernatural power as their Spartan Comrades, they are fully prepared to jump into action at any moment.

Dive head first into danger, you can bring some friends with you to form your own team. Halo 3 ODST is going to give you a fuller view of the dystopic Halo3 world, as seen by the new Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.

Join Mario and Luigi to tour around Bowser's Insides. Another attempt to take over the mushroom kingdom has led to bizarre consequences, can you escape from your dire situation and rescue Mushroom Kingdom once again?

Also translated and released this week for the Nintendo DS is Bleach 3rd Phantom. This game takes you to the past where you can see the death angel's childhoods and fight beside the deceased captains.

Here is another game for your DS. Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Destiny 2 features the grown up Naruto and his friends. Collect items, solve puzzles and travel the Naruto World in the Quest Mode, pick a fight with your neighbor to see who is the most powerful ninja in the Wireless Network Mode.

Save the universe by rolling a ball. The little alien prince is here with his game. Katamari Forever is localized for the English speaking gamers. Innovative controls, a wacky storyline and colorful graphics brought to life by the PlayStation 3, this is an adventure for the whole family to enjoy! So what are you waiting for? Start rolling!

Enjoy the ultimate fighting experience with the Madcatz Arcade FightStick. Execute those special moves the arcade way, this is an essential if you are to win!
