Weekly Games Update: Speed and stealth - Ninja Blade, Tenchu 4, Sega Genesis Collection, DJ MAX Fever, & much more!


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

The highlight of the week, is of course Street Fighter IV. For more information with regards to the hit 3rd generation game and its shipping schedules, please read this special news.

Aside from fighters, Ninjas seems to be a very popular subject this week, for Xbox360 gamers, we have the Asian version of Ninja Blade and for the Sony PSP players, we have Tenchu 4.

Parasites have infested Tokyo in Ninja Blade and are attacking its citizens. Its up to you to wield your blade and exterminate all of them.

Chaos is threatening to overcome Japan in Tenchu 4 and its up to two Ninjas, the veteran Rikimaru and the prodigy Ayame to save the day.

Instead of wielding the sword like a warrior, the two depend on their stealth to catch their victims unaware, and if the player did everything right, the ninjas can even kill boss characters with one single slash.

Like ninjas, Sonic is fast and he has raced back time to bring you all the greatest games from the SEGA Genesis™ Collection. Compiled into one game disc, this title offers a wide range of choices, and by making use of the advanced capabilities of the newest consoles, retro games has never been so fun.

Can your reflexes work as fast as Sonic? Catch the cues that fell from the top of the screen in DJ Max Fever and listen to the fast paced dance beats or cute pop songs. The game makes use of the Sony PSP's exceptionally powerful graphical and sound capabilities to draw you into the world of rhythms and tones.

Another exciting and amusing game that depends on your reflexes is Mario and Luigi RPG 3. The brothers are on their way to save Kinoko town but ended up in the stomach of a Cooper. Can the two escape in time to become saviors, or will they be disolved by the acids in the giant's stomach?
