Weekly Games Update: Combination of the old and the new - Sega Mega Drive Twin Pad systems, Samurai Spirits Anthology, Guilty Gear (PSP), Siren, Wario Land Shake, Sora no Kiseki 3 & much more!


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

Although new games are coming out every day, classic games, especially those that marked a change in the direction of the development of a genre are never forgotten.

However, due to ageing, your existing classic systems or the game catridges may have stopped working, to bring an end to this problem AtGames released the Sega Mega Drive Twin Pad Player for you to revive the Sega 16 bit era.

Aside from the system problems, AtGames solves your catridge issues. The Player does not only play existing Mega Drive catridges, but a new line of specifically designed RedKid catridges and multi-game compilations as well. Now you have both the system and a chance of replacing your well loved but malfunctioning catridges.

SNK Playmore, likewise, is engaged in a project of reviving their classic NeoGeo games on newer consoles. The Samurai Spirits series marks a change in the development of the hack and slash fighting genre, and six of these installments are taken and formed into a compilation called Samurai Spirits Anthology [PlayStation2™ & Nintendo Wii™ versions] you can enjoy in the comfort of your living room.

After the classic games and systems are taken care of, on we go to the new releases. Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus is converted to Sony PSP™ [JPN & Asian] versions so you can take on your opponents whenever and wherever you are. Aside from the existing attractions, to commemorate the series' 10th year anniversary, this new version is filled to the brim with new elements that make your fights more exciting than ever.

Enjoy a spine chilling experience in the heat of summer with Siren: New Translation [JPN & Asian versions]. Fly to Japan through your PlayStation3™ and investigate the deadly Hanuda village. The line between the dead and the living is blurred and only the fittest can survive this battle.

Come back from Hanuda village and join the adorably selfish and greedy antihero Wario on his quest to plunder treasure from all over the world with your Nintendo Wii™. Enjoy some classic side-scrolling action in Wario Land Shake and unlock all the secret missions in every stage.

Take off to the skies in the Eiyuu Densetsu VI: Sora no Kiseki 3 [standard & limited editions]. Board the huge airship in search for remnants of an ancient civilization. Discover and explore the skies on the go with your Sony PSP™, since this installment is connected with Eiyuu no Densetsu VII, learn about the premises of this still-developing game and prepare for your next adventure.

Based on a bestselling manga and anime series, Katekyoo Hitman Reborn! DS Flame Rumble Hyper incorporated the most updated plot elements and character developments with upgraded action.

With manga and anime you play the role of a passive spectator who watches as things unfold before your eyes, but with the game, you can actively participate in the plot. Write, or rewrite the story starring your favorite character in this newest Katekyoo Hitman Reborn! game.

The Xbox360™ exclusive great hit RPG Blue Dragon was highly anticipated when it was first released and still greatly popular now. For those who did not manage to get their hands on a copy last time, here is your ultimate chance of getting your hands on one and saving plenty of cash in the process.

Bring another fragment of Persona 4 and a feel of contemporary Japan home by getting your hands on the soundtrack of the game. To bring out this sense of modernity, the music producer Kurome Shoji has written plenty of new, memorable composition and vocals that will stick in your mind the way the game does.
