Weekly Games Update: Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, Dark Sector, Mana Khemia 5, Pro Yakyuu Spirits 5, Harvest Moon DS & more


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

Interesting games that came out this week include the US version of Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3 for PlayStation2™. The 3D rendered konoha village has a host of ninjas who specialize in all types of skills, from the powerhouses to the sneakier ones. Participate in missions and join battle royales and gain first hand experience in the dangerous and exciting lives of the ninjas.

Another thrilling game about ninjas is released this week, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword differ from Naruto by pitting the Ninjas against dragon gods from the mythical worlds. Learn the skills from these two games and become an expert ninja yourself, at least in the world of gaming.

Feel free to become other action heroes aside from a ninja. Dark Sector for PlayStation3™ and Xbox360™ takes place in a ruined Eastern European city with a dark secret where you need to conquer the people under the control of a deadly virus and the power infested within your body to survive and become a hero.

Shuriken and guns are lethal weapons that a skilled fighter can wield with grace, but you can also create your own customized weapon through alchemy in the classic RPG Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis for PlayStation2™. The story depicts the rites of passage of a youth who grew from a timid youngster to a full fledged alchemist.

Become a hero in the baseball diamond through Pro Yakyuu Spirits 5 for PlayStation2™ and PlayStation3™. Step into the shoes of your favourite baseball players and pitch, or bat against the strong opponents in this realistic game.

After all the blood, sweat and tears, a more peaceful, but just as interesting game, Harvest Moon DS Cute for Nintendo DS™ arrived. Work in the fields, attend to livestock and restore the Harvest sprites, and to make matters more interesting, aside from crops, harvest a romance in this game as well.
