Weekly Games Update: Spend the last days of your summer holidays traveling to Afrika, the underworld in Disgaea, an eastern island in Captain Rainbow, a mansion with friends in To Love Ru & much more!


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

The games released this week are encouraging gamers to take control of the last days of their summer holidays and visit various places around the world.

Afrika, a.k.a Hakuna Matata gives gamers cameras and a set of equipment and take them throughout Africa to photograph animals for publishers and other well known environmental protection organizations.

This game is produced under the supervision of scholars and biologists and was used to promote the graphical capabilities of the PlayStation3, come safari in the African plains and experience nature.

Travel back time to the age of where Norse mythology and technology are blended together. Such a world is both intriguing and dangerous, especially in Too Human where you live amongst flawed gods and war machines. Join the ranks of said flawed gods and give up your human body for humanity in this epic adventure.

Since we are in the fantasy realm anyway, lets travel enroute to the world of Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice [US & Asia Versions] and visit the school of evil. In this game you have to be good to be bad, in other words, if you do good deeds, you will become a delinquent. To overthrow his father, the Overlord of the Underworld, Mao has to become a hero.

A demon turning into a hero itself promises a unique adventure that defies common logic, but a hero who wants to regain popularity, too would lead to a comical journey.

Captain Rainbow, the alter ego of the geeky Nick is traveling to an eastern island called the Mimintou to collect stars to have his wish come true. Parodying several superheroes from hit American comics, Captain Rainbow will give you a good laugh.

Sometimes you don't need to travel far to have fun, you just need to be with a group of eccentric people. Stay in an old mansion in To Love Ru: Trouble: Waku Waku! Rinkangakkou-Hen [standard & limited editions] with a group of eleven girls. One of them is an alien whom you have growing affections for and the other is your long time crush, what would you do in this period?

Re-explore your hometown in Fate/ Tiger Colosseum Upper for a series of excitement. The battles for the Tiger Grail has once again started in Fuyuki City where the cast of Fate/ Stay Night characters reside.

This time, the city is invaded by characters from Type Moon such as Arc, transformed into a cat girl. The vampire princess is going to be a catalyst for the snow balling of the comedic chaos.

Make use of the remaining days of your holidays to learn golf from Tiger Woods' mentor in PGA Tour 09 or plan to organize your soccer team when you go back to school.

Inazuma Eleven is a game about team work and soccer. You are the captain of a dying soccer club in school, star scout the ace striker who has recently been transfered to your school, build up a net of trust amongst your teammates and join in junior championships that would mark the height of your school days.
