Weekly Games Update: Wolfenstein, Melty Blood, Madden NFL 10, C.O.R.E, Fossil Fighter, Kiniro no Corda 2f Encore, Heart no Kuni no Alice, Ookami Kakushi & more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. This week was rather calm as well, yet we have some wildly popular releases such as Melty Blood Actress Again, Wolfenstein and Madden NFL 10.

Wolfenstein is back with even more fire power, speed and visual impacts. Soil the Nazi's schemes of taking over the world through the occult and scientific knowledge.

They have opened a portal to another dimension and is making a weapon of mass destruction. Take your arsenal of weapons and venture into the enemies' camps.

They will be throwing supernatural foes at you, load your weapons and plow all those in your path down.

Nazis is not the only group planning to wreak havoc. A group of scientists are locked out in the Mojave Desert in C.O.R.E, you have to go free them, and learn what they know about the meteor that crashed on to the earth. Dig some fossils out of the soil while you're at your DS and participate in Fossil Fighters tournaments.

Less dangerous, but just as exciting - play a game of rugby with your very own team. With stunning graphics and an interactive system, Madden NFL 10 is one of the most realistic team sports experience to date. After whipping your body to shape, start working on your mind. Play a game of Japanese chess with Saikyou Todai Shogi.

After fighting supernatural forces and facing off with rugby teams, it's time to battle other opponents. Vampires and psychics are very much in vogue, pit them against each other in Melty Blood Actress Again.

Not only are regular members of the Tsukihime series making an appearance, comical characters such as Cat Arc and Mecha Hisui are also here.

End your struggles and do something romantic. Become a concert mistress for the school orchestra and go after the man of your dreams in Koei's Kiniro no Corda 2f Encore. Drop into a rabbit hole and meet all the funny, irrational, but very handsome men in Heart no Kuni no Alice.

For those who are partial to darker things, venture into the world of Ookami Kakushi, an old, small town invested with mysterious incidents and carnivorous monsters.
