Weekly Games Update: Fight in pairs in Bleach: Heat the Soul 5, wield the almighty hammer in Gen-San: Yuuyake Daiku Monogatari, adventure in authentic RPGs - Luminous Arc 2: Will, Dungeon of Windaria & more!


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

One of the hottest games that came out this week is Bleach: Heat the Soul 5 [JPN, Asian]. Fight in pairs in this brand new Sony PSP™ game, choose any two from the twenty four characters and take on all the bosses' tag teams. The more teams you beat, the more hidden characters you can unlock.

Special skills from the manga are animated in fully voiced video clips, when you filled up your tag gage, launch attacks that combine both character's powers and deal some massive damages.

Another interesting game for Sony PSP™ players is Irem's Ikuze! Gen-San: Yuuyake Daiku Monogatari [JPN, Asian]. Become this hot blooded carpenter Gen-san and defeat the evil construction company that is harrassing the people in town. Gen-san's powers defy gravity and logic, and the wooden hammer is certainly mightier than missiles and tanks.

Two fantasy RPG that sets stage in medieval European land are released on Nintendo DS™, one of them is Luminous Arc 2: Will and the other is Dungeon of Windaria.

Use the engagement ring system in Luminous Arc 2: Will to form pacts with the witches and explore their powers by letting them transform your armor and weapons in dire situations.

Dungeon of Windaria is an epic tale of fantasy, war and romance. Adventure with Izu, a traditional fantasy hero as he joins in the war effort to save his land, preserve peace for his people and the love between the prince and the princess.

Aside from new games for portable systems, popular titles released new editions for your third generation consoles.
