PRE-ORDER HIGHLIGHTS: Daisenryaku Perfect: Senjou No Hasha, Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen Sangokushi Engi and Bakumatsu Rock!

Welcome to our Weekly Pre-order news! This week features a super varied import selection and even an PSP game you won't believe!


PlayStation®3 Xbox360™ [Turn Based Simulation]

Originally for the the Sony PSP, Diasenryaku Perfect HD is a modern era turn-based military simulation game that focuses on faithfully recreating the strengths and weaknesses of real life countries; players will choose from 22 different countries from around the world and embark on world domination. There are 600 units - all of which can be leveled up with increased accuracy, defense and abilities, and these are spread throughout the global map. 

As this is an upgrade, expect HD graphics and 3D cinematic movies between turns. As well, for the first time ever for this series, online multiplayer is available; 8 people can play in one session with an emphasis on allies and betrayals. As well, aside from the realistic military tech displayed, there are more fictitious units such as dragons, miniature armoured unicorns and spaceships at the players disposal within custom matches keeping things fresh. 

Last but not least, Daisenryaku Perfect HD will also feature a map editor for custom games with an editor that can change rules, weapon, nation, terrain, and units.

PlayStation®3 [Fighting]

In the alternate world of Koihime Musou, almost all the male characters from the aforementioned novel are now female; as well, the Three Kingdoms that were formed post Han dynasty have already been established. Regardless of the difference, the essence remains the same, as warring factions and civil unrest siege this turbulent time.

As one of the more interesting takes on the famous classical Chinese Novel, Romance of the 3 Kingdoms, this popular eroge series which spawned a manga and anime returns in it's latest console offering - a port of the popular Japanese arcade fighting game. 

With slick colorful graphics, a huge list of characters and Japanese twitch fighting mechanics, take a alternate trip back into a world you thought you knew in Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen Sangokushi Engi!

Sony PSP™ [Rhythm]

Some may say that releasing a PSP game in today's console climate is insane - it's definitely not as insane as the premise for Bakumatsu Rock!

On the surface, Bakumatsu Rock is a visual novel rhythm game hybrid best described as the love child of Hatsune Miku and Hakuoki. What is not obviously seen though is the context; play as Sakamoto Ryoma who fights against sinster Shinsengumi schemes with the power of rock music. Rock Music. 

This wild and completely out there game is currently turning a lot of heads back towards the PSP - perhaps rock and roll is still alive - if not, this wonderful "learn history with rock and roll" is something to look forward to.
