Weekly import update: Eien no Aseria: Kono Daichi no Hate de, Front Mission Online (PS2™), Space Invaders Pocket (PSP™), Nintendo DS™ (PokePark 2005 Limited Edition) & more


It's remaining relatively calm in the second May release week. A total of 6 (+2 Limited Edition) releases have been published in Japan today. Highlights from this week include Nippon Ichi's Eien no Aseria: Kono Daichi no Hate de (regular version and Limited Edition), Square-Enix's MMORPG Front Mission Online (PlayStation2™) as well as Taito's Space Invaders Pocket (Sony PSP™).

As side notice, Sony's PSP™ handheld has officially been released in Hong Kong today along with 11 Asian version PSP™ release titles. For the sake of completeness, we have started listing Asian release titles in our new Asian Version software category. As known from other platform releases, Asian version titles are mainly based on either the Japanese or US release, shipping including an additional Chinese and/or English language instructions sheet.

Most Asian titles as well as the PSP PlayStation Portable Value Pack (PSP-1000K6) are currently not available through Play-Asia.com due to restricted distribution reasons. We will however keep an eye on the situation and anticipate those releases - which are mainly well demanded by our customers in South East Asia - to go on sale in the near future.
