Weekly Games Update: Crossing Over - Sunday Magazine: Taisen Action, Excelica enhanced, GTA China Town Wars, Super Robot Taisen K, Pokemon Platinum, VP Covenent of the Plume, Rune Factory Frontier & much murch more!


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

While chasing armed criminals across the galaxy, the Trigger Hearts fell into a trap and were teleported to the Earth. Falling in love with the planet, the girls are here to protect our planet from menacing forces in this vertical shooter. Cute girls and lethal weapons, Trigger Heart Exelica Enhanced is here save the day.

Aside from androids, casts of heroes and heroines from Shounen Weekly and Sunday Weekly will fight in the Sunday x Magazine: Taisen Action championship held in the name of celebrating the 50th Annivesary of the magazines.

From classic heroes such as Ashita no Joe to new age ones such as Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail, you can catch a glimpse of the magazine's evolution.

Step into the exclusive world of the Chinese Mafia in Grand Theft Auto: China Town Wars. From revenge, car chases and shootings to honour (or how much you can shed), get a taste of what being a criminal is like and see how far you can rise in this shadowy world as an heir to a gang.

Take your struggles to the galaxy in Super Robot Taisen K. The wars between Coordinators and Naturals, taken from Gundam Seed are getting bigger, involving more and more mecha from other series. Step into the cockpit and fight for your believes in a dangerously addictive game.

Hot RPGs and simulation games are translated and localized for English speaking players. Pokemon Platinum, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume and Rune Factory Frontier are the most popular games this week, so come catch'em all, fight a valkyrie and cultivate your land.

Join Haruhi on a grand cruise - to a strange world where time flows in loops, your replica appears and girls get recruited as potential brides. Once Haruhi relieves her boredom there, be sure to take her away from Suzumiya Haruhi no Heiretsu. Take another trip to the underworld and fight tactical battles in Disgaea 2.
