Weekly Games Update: Localization games: Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus, Rhythm Heaven, Hammering Hero, Fantasy Golf Pangya Portable, Infinity series - Remember 11, 12Riven & more!


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

This week is rather calm as well, however, there is one bombardment of a movie/game. All loose strings in Advent Children will be tied in this Complete Edition and with the FFXIII Trial version package, get a taste of the most anticipated RPG of the year.

For more information, please take a look at the special news entry.

Quite a number of localized Japanese games hit the overseas market this week, Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus, the stylish fighter is out with more characters and scenarios, meet Justice, the fearsome queen of the Gears as you fight your way through the stages.

Rhythm Heaven, the family game is out. Unlike other DJ simulation games that test your hand eye coordination and techniques, Rhythm Heaven is more about feeling the music and tapping your stylus to the rhythm. A stereo system and many fun mini games are provided, so enjoy with a couple of friends.

When a nail sticks up, hammer it! The cute hammering fun is localized for US speaking audiences. Protect your town from some villainous building company and defend your way of life. The hammer is mightier than the sword, and the hammer is not the only tool you get to play with! Be aware of the carpenter in Hammering Hero!

Another tool is mightier than the sword this week, the golf club. Unlike Hammering Hero, however, you don't save your home through whacking it on the heads of your opponents in Fantasy Golf Pangya Portable. Hit the magic ball into the hole with your magic club as one of the cute characters, with the aid of your fairy, you will surely feel how fantastic the sport is.

Escape from time loops in the Infinity series, which completes with Remember 11 and 12 Riven. Figure out where you are, how you ended up there, get to know your companions and break out of the your pre-ordained fates.

In 12 Riven you are not merely saving yourself, but Myuu, a girl with mysterious powers from an insane psychic.
