Weekly Games Update: Summer Harvest! - Black Wii, Monster Hunter 3, Tales of VS, SD Gundam, Kamen Rider, Blood of Bahamut, Bleach DS 4, G.I. Joe, Magna Carta 2, Pop'n Music & much much more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. This is a week with wonderful picks, from Monster Hunting in an uncultivated island to the Tales of VS fighting grounds to space battles with SD Gundams, you'd never be bored.

Yet, before we talk about the games, there is the new Nintendo Wii model that makes a lot of people's mouths water. Sleek and chic, this version is the complete opposite of the clean and cute white.

Having broken your old console? Or simply need a NTSC/J machine to play all the newest, coolest Japanese games?

Come get your model now and the series of remote controls. With white and black, you'll never mistakenly grab your sibling's control after taking a break from a white hot battle.

Venture into the dark caves and dive into the sea, monsters are lurking everywhere in Monster Hunter 3. Besides the standard editions, there are packages with classic controllers [Black & White] and the e-capcom version that contains a series of rare collectibles.

Besides playing the game, you can decorate your console with new accessories such as the Nintendo Wii Stands and decoration sheets.

Tales of VS is another one of the Tales of cross over parties. After meeting your favourite characters in the Radiant Mythology series, it's time to see them not only as saviors, but as real fighters. Besides the Tales of heroes, Kamen Riders have also opened their own fighting tournaments.

Space battles and international warfare, mecha and cuteness, SD Gundam blended these elements in angelic proportions. Switch parts and weapons around and create your ideal SD Gundam. All heroes from the series are joining in the strategic battles, see their piloting skills and pit the new heroes against their elders.

Other than hunters, fighters and mecha pilots, there are other careers and adventures. Destroy the behemoths in the Blood of Bahamut and save Rukia from the cursed blade in Bleach DS 4. G.I Joe and Magna Carta 2 (JPN language vers.) are also available, in the name of love, justice and ambition, go plow down your enemies.

As for shooters, we have Saint the retro style horizontal scrolling shooter that mixes Chinese mythology with exciting gameplay and Strikers 1945, developed by Saikyou, the game manufacturer that created numerous successful arcade games.

Finding the wars and hunting trips too serious and long for some light hearted fun? Swing and sway to a series of Jpop and anime songs in Pop'n Music. Or alternatively, follow the 35 year old little green dwarf on his journey to popularity in Irodzuki Tincle no Koi no Balloon Trip.
