Weekly import update: Killer7, Metal Saga, Shoujo Yoshitsuneden 2, Kenka Banchou (PS2™), PSP™ accessories, Lumines Remixes (soundtrack), Street Fighter Heroines (toys) & more


With 12 (+1 Limited Edition) new titles, it's been a relatively calm Japanese release week. The major highlight has certainly been Capcom's long-awaited action title Killer7 (available for Gamecube™ and PlayStaton2™).

Additionally well selling video game releases include Spike's highschool action title Kenka Banchou, Success' strategic RPG Metal Saga and Bandai's anime based Steamboy (all for PS2™).

No PSP™ or Nintendo DS™ games were released during this week, however a couple of licensed PSP™ accessories not yet available outside of Asia might appeal to one or another.

Further worth to be metioned individually is Brainstorm's Lumines Remixes soundtrack. In our opinion not to be missed by any true fan of the game.
