Xenoblade, Wand of Fortune Portable, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Rock Man Zero Collection, Green Day: Rock Band, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 & more! in Weekly Games Update!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. The Nintendo Wii actioner Xenoblade has arrived. Pick up your sword and stand off against the kishin. If you prefer to fight through magic, go to a magical school in the Wand of Fortune and meet some great wizards.

In the distant past, when the world was still covered in endless blue, there were two gods - the machine god and the giant god. To decide who gets to rule this world, the two fought each other until death.

Land surfaced years after the war, and later, human civilization flourished. But peace didn't last, for machine soldiers appeared. Set in an alternate world where the middle ages meets sci-fi, this is another war that ends all wars.

The game uses an action battle system that allows you free movement. Hit your target and run from his hit range, or combo him with your two other party characters. If your party gage is full, you can activate arts that could severely weaken your opponent.

One of the most useful features is the premonition system, for a few seconds after the battle started, you could see what fatal damages your enemy could do to your party. To change the future, you have to defeat the monster before he give you that lethal blow.

Exciting and epic, Xenoblades is available to all NTSC/J encoded Nintendo Wii™ gamers:

XenobladeJPN US$ 99.991w




Lulu is born with magical powers unassociated with any element (i.e. Light, darkness, wind, water etc.) and so all spells she performs ends in hazards. To prevent the school from judging her as an unfit magician and sealing her powers, she has to choose an element and a fellow magician to bond with.

Bring up a powerful magician in a school setting and get to know your fellow students, they are not only there to help you determine which sort of magic you should channel your powers into, but are also potential romantic interests that will bring you to your happy ending.

The Limited Edition carries a pouch and a special Drama CD, the cast entered an unexplored mountain area and discovered treasure. This is absolute fun.
