Happy Chinese New Year! Play-Asia.com will be back on 26th January! - Special shipping arrangements for the holiday period and a glimpse of new games that release in the new year!

The dragon comes as the bunnies scurry away. Welcome to the year of the Dragon. As the only mythical beast in the 12 Chinese zodiac signs, the Dragon is special. It represents vigour, auspicious powers and success. The Chinese emperor used the dragon as his sign and a great many games liken their heroes to dragons. So may everyone be blessed by it.

Staff at Play-Asia.com will be back on Thursday 26th January to get ready for the biggest event of the year - hint: The Spring Sales, that does require a lot of preparations as we have so much prices to slash. And since Chinese New Year is the longest holiday period in China and Taiwan, there are special shipping arrangements.

The custom offices in some regions in Mainland China will be closed during the holiday period, the delivery of items (including Speedpost) that are subject to custom duties may be delayed between January 22nd to 28th.

For Taiwan, the post office will stop accepting and delivering parcels from 21st to 29th January. However, delivery services for duty-free Speedpost items will not be affected during the holiday period.

As for Macau all deliveries will be suspended in between 23rd to 25th January.

We have also received news from the Hong Kong Post Office that due to the recent cancellation of flights to the European countries, there is insufficient air cargo space to meet with postal demand, air mail services (including Speedpost) from Hong Kong to European destinations may be subject to delay. The above situation will remain until further notice.

But don't worry, there will be a lot of fun when the postmen and custom officers come back to work.

Because the games will be rolling in. The one thing that gamers who love new gadgets have to look out for is the US version of the Sony PS Vita. The accessories will be restocked again by the end of the month. You can also meet the heroes in Tales of Innocence, the ogres in Sumioni and become a Ninja in Ninja Sigma.

Talking about Ninjas, there are quite a few games that involve them. There is Narutimate Storm Generation and Ninja Gaiden 3. And action doesn't stop. Asura is on his path of vengeance in Asura's Wrath, the Syndicate is searching for new recruits. And the zombies are going to gobble everything up in Biohazard Revelations.

There are sea voyages to be have. Join Luffy and his crew in One Piece Musou, or sail across the Mediterranean seas with the warriors in the Legends of Troy. Travel through the vast galaxy to battle the zodiac saints in Saint Seiya. Your patience will be pay off, Tales of Graces F will be landing on the English version PlayStation3s.

With so much wars going on, gamers might want to find something fun, peaceful, but equally exciting. Join the Final Fantasy characters on the dance floor in Theatrhythm. Hatsune Miku is leading her Vocaloid family to the Nintendo 3DS in Project Mirai. And for people who adore super deformed cuteness, Nendoroid Generation is coming to the Sony PSP.

... But before these games come, lets enjoy a very happy Chinese New Year Holidays and finish the game you are playing at the moment.
