Weekly Games Update: Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Ikki Tousen: Xross Impact & more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Compared to last week, this week's releases are sort of calm, but still, be amazed, as all releases are BIG TITLES. Yesterday, we had Super Street Fighter IV, today we have Peace Walker and polar opposite - Ikkitousen.

From the publisher: Stories tell of a legendary soldier who, with Metal Gear in his command, had once waged war against the world. His name Naked Snake, a.k.a. Big Boss.

Now, in response to a world hungry for answers, the truth behind this legend will finally be told. The era is the 1970's. Big Boss had stationed his "Soldiers without Borders" in Columbia, South America, where he was approached by a visitor from Costa Rica "a Nation without a Military".

In the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis, as Latin America became a key to maintaining the power balace between East and West, Costa Rica had miraculously managed to maintain its peace and neutrality. However, in various regions of the country, a mysterious armed force seemed to be engaging in suspicious activities.

Now, to preserve peace in this nation without a military, the "Soldiers without Borders" move into action. In time, they would come to be known as the founders of "Outer Heaven." Forge a new path and live the legend with "Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker", the first official "Hideo Kojima Game" on the PSP system!

Due to the immense popularity of the first PSP game in the series, the developers are putting more effort, more girls and more costumes into this second installment.

Choose a pair of your favourite characters and take them on this 2D Belt scrolling action, let the girls cooperate with each other to launch combos, or switch them in and out to let the player character rest.

22 girls will join the battle with a complete new plot. Warriors who were out of the game are back with new skin tight dresses. Watch the fully voiced cut-ins when you launch sure kill attacks and see what damage you do to your opponents and their clothings. Beware, though, your opponents can do the same to you.

Bold and powerful, join the girl's war for the Queen's throne. Queen's Blade X Cross Impact is a Sony PSP exclusive:
