Weekly Games Update: Heart beat at 120 times per min - Ryu ga Gotoku 3, KOF 2002 Unlimited Matches, OneChanbara, Halo Wars, Dragon Quest 5, Unlimited Cruise ep. 2, Shin Sangoku Musou & much much more!


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

Same as last week, torrents of new games have washed up our warehouse. For those who want to delve deeper into the Street Fighter world, be sure to get a collector's edition as it comes with movies, a figure, soundtrack and guide book.

The US version has come this week and be sure to order soon as the number of stocks for limited products are, well, very limited.

Got into the fighting mood and are dying to take on more challenges? Good! KOF 2002 Unlimited Match is here, with a total of 66 fighters in the battle roster and 22 new characters, battles will truely be endless this time.

Be a true Street Fighter and join the ex-Yakuza boss Kiryuu on his quest to protect his sanctuary and orphanage. When political interests and yakuza power struggles inter-mixes, people involved get into a lot of trouble.

From karaoke bars to the offices of politicians with shady intents, Ryu no Gotoku 3 gives you a peek of the Japanese underworld.

Come out of the Tokyo streets and allies and get into a bigger, more organized war. Command armies in Halo Wars make use of your arsenal of weapons as well as all the different troops under you.

Loosen your brain muscles after winning the Halo Wars. Hack and slash your way through ranks of zombies. Join Aya and Saki in OneChanbara. With beauty, sexiness and swordsmanship, this pair of girls are invincible.

Get into a car after all this foot work, but keep you heart pounding at 120 times per minute with Race Pro. The racing simulation game is so realistic that the gamers could hardly tell that the device in their hands is really a video game console controller and not a driver's wheel.

After bursting past the finish line, get out of the car and meet the majestic creatures of myths - Dragons. Dragon Quest 5, Blue Dragon Plus and Fire Emblem: The Shadow Dragon have flown around the world, now setting foot in the English speaking countries.

RPGs are more fun when you understand them completely, come play the English versions now.

Set off on a voygage with the One Piece crew in Unlimited Cruise Ep. 2 and see all the comical/dangerous situations that they get into. With more places to explore and more gadgets and boats to play with, your voyages and explorations would be more exciting than ever.

One thing you learn when you play these Unlimited Cruise games is how fun it is to be with friends. Go join up with 3 more like minded comrades and make war in Shin Sangoku Musou Multi-Raid. Device tactics and assign roles, you are much more formidable with teamwork backing you up.
