Ballistics and melodies: Mushihimesama HD, Uta no * Prince-Sama: Debut, Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Darling, Gravure for You 8, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Dragon's Dogma & 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. Fill your gaming life with colour and variety. Brave the bullets in Mushihime-sama, catch the music notes from the lips of the singing princes in UtaPri Debut and create a time machine in Steins; Gate.

Mushihime-sama takes place in a world covered by sand. Here, massive six legged creatures roam the earth, and are respected as the forest gods.

Princess Leko has been unafraid of these gods ever since she was a child, because a mysterious boy gave her a bracelet that allows her to understand the feelings of the insects. However, there is something he, and the rest of her people keep from her.

The bracelet is only given to girls chosen as living sacrifices to the gods. And when an epidemic strikes her home town, she is sent to the forest, perhaps for the last time. Intricately beautiful, but exceptionally challenging, Mushihimesama is now in HD. The new game comes with a HD Mode, a Beginners Mode and an Arrange Mode.

The Limited Edition comes with an arranged soundtrack CD:

Haruka and the princes have won the graduation competition and are now artists under the Shining Label. One day, an invitation to a master course comes from the chairman of their old school. Since the idol industry is full of competitions now, they have to take another step to discover their talents.

The boys are to train under experienced idols in pairs. Their senpai idols have quirks that make them unique, they also bring conflicts to the scenes. With a larger cast of boys and more scenarios, Uta no Prince-sama Debut is going to merge romance and music even tighter together.

The Darling Box comes with a soundtrack and a special booklet.

The Steins Gate series is made of 99% science and 1% fantasy. But in this installment, this proportion no longer holds true. The players can have 100% of what they want. The tone becomes lighter, more like a love comedy, see what the characters are up to when they are not doing experiments and creating chaos.

The game has more events and CGs, so discover new sides of characters that are usually hidden by their tough or cheerful exteriors. Get closer to the girls by sending them random emails. The interface becomes even easier to use, so just slide into your white lab coat to start your adventure.

Find your perfect match in the lab:
