Weekly Games Update: Another tsunami - Resident Evil 5 Collector's Edition, MadWorld, Tierkreis, Mana Khemia, Rei Choaniki, Cross of Venus, Brandish, Amagami, Musou Tourou, Haruka 3, Tomoyo After, Harvest Moon PSP & more!


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

The US versions of Resident Evil came out last Friday, including the collector's editions. With bags and figures, this package contains the largest amount of goodies for the die hard fans. The collector's editions are in high demand and its supply are in very limited numbers, so get it as soon as you can to avoid dissapointment.

The use of monotone colors as in comic books in MadWorld makes the action and blood that spill across your screen come to life with more vitality than ever. Anything can become a weapon, from chainsaws to street signs, this is a tournament only for the toughest of fighters.

More intriguing Japanese RPGs are localized for English speaking players. Tierkreis, the newest installment in the Suikoden series and Mana Khemia has arrived today. Join up with 108 warriors to defeat the One King whose ambitions are to bring chaos to the world.

Enrol into a Mana Khemia and make something out of yourself. Make friends with your school mates, complete part-time jobs, defeat monsters and create items with the recipes you collected.

Here is a tribute to all muscle training and body toning fans. Control one of the muscular player characters in Rei Choaniki and go against others in a horizontal shooting battle. Nonsense humor is mixed with orthodox game play as well as other unique gaming elements that promotes masculinity, such as 'men's beam'.

Get to know a number of cute guys and girls in the game world. Rescue your favourite publisher, Dengeki Bunko from impending chaos in Cross of Venus. Besides saving the publisher, you have to rescue yourself in Brandish, escape from the cursed labyrinth unscathed as Ares the bounty hunter and Dora the mage.

A series of romance simulation games are released this week, just in time for the sakura season. Amagami, Musou Tourou, Tomoyo After and Harukanaru Toki no Nakade 3. Find the right one for you this spring.

Try your hand at estate management. Make your farm prosper and prevent the big evil corporations from taking your lifestyle away from you in Harvest Moon Sugar Village. Become a nobleman and rid the queen of her anxieties, or work as a demon butler to aid your little master on his quests in Kuroshitsuji.
