Weekly Games Update: The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, Armored Core: For Answer, Dramatic Dungeon: Sakura Wars, Pokemon Ranger, Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu & more


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

As mentioned in last week's preview, many interesting games have been released this week. We bring you the exciting first person shooter The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return [US, Japanese and with Zapper] versions for Nintendo Wii™. With the Wii Zapper in hand, feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins as you defeat the zombies that are charging toward you.

This is an exciting week for fans of sci-fi, robots and mecha. Armored Core: For Answer [Xbox360™ and PlayStation3™] versions are released. Find out the reason for going to war as you challenge and defeat some of the largest and most carefully designed mecha in gaming history.

Dramatic Dungeon: Sakura Taisen [standard and limited edition] is another game that combines an engaging plot, charming characters and mecha, but instead of taking place in the futuristic world, it sets stage in Taisho Japan. Experience some exhilirating mecha fights and witness the elegance of Japanese theatrical arts in this renowned game.

Stepping away from the horror and mecha combats, we bring you Pokemon Ranger: Batonnage to your Nintendo DS™. Capture pokemon by your stylus, adventure with these beloved creatures and save the world from the clutches of darkness in this fun game. We also have the comical sports game Chou Nekketsu Koukou Kunio-Kun Dodge Ball Bu where you defeat the evil through a game of dodge ball.
