Weekly Games Update: Something for everyone - battle and fight in Lost Planet (Colonies ed.), Battle Fantasia, tune your sense of rhythm in beatmania IIDX 14 Gold, Pop'n music Be-Mouse & much more!


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

Quite a large number of popular games came out this week. These include Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies edition [JPN and US] for Xbox360™.

This game is an upgraded re-release of the critically acclaimed action game. With more content and cross platform gameplay, the war for survival is made even more intense and challenging.

Another war between good and evil is waging in Battle Fantasia on both Xbox360™ and PlayStation3™ [JPN and Asian versions]. This stunning game combines RPG elements, high quality graphics and intriguing characters together with exhilarating fights. Be sure to master the techniques and practice your reflexes as you tackle the tough enemies.

Aside from this refreshingly new fighter, some classic NEOGEO fighting games like The King of Fighters Nests, Fatal Fury Battle Archives 1 & 2 and Fuuun Super Combo are released as best priced editions for your PlayStation2™.

Reflexes and techniques are very important in rhythm games as well. The much awaited music game beatmania IIDX 14 Gold is released on PlayStation2™ this week as well with two special editions (Konamistyle Special Edition and Konamistyle Special Edition Complete) already presold.

Konami released another rhythm game aside from beatmania IIDX 14 Gold. Pop'n Music Be-Mouse is for PC and comes with a specially designed mouse which can double as a handheld device for the game.

A good way to train your reflexes and keep fit is through Family Trainer: Athletic World on your Nintendo Wii™. Use the specially designed Wii mat to have some fun with your family and friends. Work out from beginners mode toward master mode and see your progresses.

Train your mind with strategy and tactic games. Front Mission 2089: Border of Madness for Nintendo DS™ is about teamwork. Gather information, analyze them and customize your mech (Wanzers) for the mission.

Mugen no Frontier: Super Robot Taisen OG Saga is an exciting unorthodox RPG released on Nintendo DS™, travel across worlds as a bounty hunter, meet all sorts of inhabitants and save them from the war.

After seeing all the different sights and admiring the colorful worlds in Mugen no Frontier: Super Robot Taisen immerse yourself in the dark savage world of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures on your PC. Battle alongside King Conan and find your own destiny in this large scale MMORPG.
