Weekly import update: Playable biohazard4 demo, Metal Slug 4, Tales of Symphonia, Sakura Taisen V Episode 0, Kengo 3, Full Metal Alchemist 2, Phantom Dust, Soundtracks & lots more


The fourth Sepember week has been filled with a good variety of interesting releases for most major systems as well as lots of new toys and also video game related soundtracks.

Most interesting in this week has been Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu Capcom Special Issue No. 10/29. The magazine contains roughly 100 pages of full Capcom footage and most important, a playable demo of Capcom's upcoming Christmas hit biohazard4 (also known as Resident Evil 4 outside of Japan) as well as a Bonus DVD with recently released as well as upcoming Capcom titles. All remaining preorders of the magazine have been cleared by today and new orders are still welcome as long as our supplies last at US$ 19.90 only.

Further video game highlights from this week include Sega's Sakura Taisen V Episode 0: Samurai Girl of Wild, Square-Enix' action adventure sequel Full Metal Alchemist 2: Akaki Elixir no Akuma, SNK Playmore's 2D port of Metal Slug 4 and Namco's RPG Tales of Symphonia (all PS2™), Microsoft's Phantom Dust (Xbox™) and Treasure's Advance Guardian Heroes (GBA™).
