Weekly Games Update: Give up your human body for humanity in Too Human, save the world in Vampire Rain, Sigma Harmonics, Tokyo Majin Gakuen, enter the world of J-Leagues in Winning Eleven 2008 Club Championship & more!


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

"Give up your human body for humanity" is the catch phrase of Too Human, the highlight of the week. Adventure as the cybernetic god Baldus and fight against the machines and evil intentions that threatens the existence of mankind.

The game takes place in a world modelled after Norse mythology with familiar names such as Loki, Hel and Odin popping up frequently. By comparing the flawed gods to the war machines (e.g. Loki and Hel are both immoral while Odin is really a computer system), the topic of humanity is questioned.

The clever blend of hi-tech machines and mythical elements produced a world which is both rustic and dazzlingly futuristic and provides plenty opportunities to show off the capabilities of your Xbox360™ systems.

The Asia version of Too Human has arrived and is available for US$ 49.90 only. Likewise, the US version will be arriving later this week and is sold for US$ 64.90 only.


Other versions released next week are the Japanese version and the First Print Limited Edition, both selling for the same price of US$ 64.90.

Be careful about loosing your way in the intriguing world of Too Human, let the official guide book point you to the right way to victory. The guide is available later this week for US$ 19.90 only.



Aside from Xbox360™, the other third generation console that gets a hot action adventure is PlayStation 3™.

Be a hero and save mankind in Vampire Rain: Altered Species [JPN and Asia versions]. Instead of preventing killing machines from swarming over the human world, you work in the dark in a Special Force Unit to kill Night Walkers and Blood Suckers from feeding off humans excessively.

A lot of action are available for Nintendo DS™ gamers. Let's start off with the US version of the highly acclaimed shooter, Bangai-O Spirits. With more highly capable weapons and more freedom with stage editing, this shooter is not only turning your portable console into an arcade, but a real battle field!

Save the world again in Sigma Harmonics and Tokyo Majin Gakuen: Kenfuuchou [Limited and Standard Editions]. While Sigma Harmonics took on a splendidly grand atmosphere reminiscent of the Taisho period in Japan, Tokyo Majin Gakuen took place in the modern days.

Find out the culprit who has been rewritting history and wiping out humans in Sigma Harmonics and discover the Fenshui veins in Tokyo Majin Gakuen and prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.

Escape from the wrath of the heavenly warriors in Harukanaru toki no naka de: Yume no ukihashi [Standard, Premium Box, Treasure Box]. Everybody in the first three installments of the hot romance game are coming together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their parent company.

Cross the bridge from reality to the Japanese mythical world and date the guardian of your choice.

Take a break from your tasks of saving the world. Lead your team to victory in J-League Winning Eleven 2008 Club Championship. All the Japanese teams in the J-1 and J-2 leagues as well as quite a number of foreign teams make their appearance in the game. The controls are smoother and the games carries more modes. It is never too late to learn about soccer.

Fate/Tiger Colosseum Upper, the next game in the series is coming out next week, for those who has missed the first installment, here's your chance to grab a copy and save some cash. Fate/Tiger Colosseum came out as a best priced edition for your PSP, learn about the system and the moves and prepare yourself for the second installment.
