RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS: Sakigake! Otokojuku: Nihonyo Korega Otoko De Aru, Thief, Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2 and Kagero: Dark Side Princess!

Welcome to our Release Highlights! It's almost the end of February, and the salvo of crazy releases is finally at its end. So to send off this week, we've chosen 4 titles that are getting a lot of buzz!


PlayStation®3 PlayStation®Vita [Strategy/RPG]

Kagero is a strategy-RPG with very passive combat system, where the primary gameplay mechanic is setting traps. The developer Tecmo hasn't released a new Kagero title since Trapt - a decade ago! So you can imagine the joy all the fans felt when the logo for Kagero: Dark Side Princess was revealed at Sony's press conference! 

This cult favorite is sure to please those with a diabolical inclination towards complex schemes with huge payoffs, as many creative and iconic traps - from the Iron Maiden to Banana Peels - can be linked together for insane combinations. This title is also highly inspired by Tecmo's 1996 PlayStation game Devil's Deception. As well, Tecmo will have a share to Youtube function; share your inner evil genius to the world! 

The Premium Box will contain a Kagero Sound Collection, a Visual Collection Artbook and 3 trap DLCs!

PlayStation®3 PlayStation®4 Xbox360™ XboxONE™ PC [Stealth Action]

Live in the Shadows! Infiltrate, steal, and escape – follow Garret in this thrilling tale as he ventures into 'The City' to pilfer the wealth of the rich and leave without a trace. Thief is the 4th game, the first for consoles, in this cult classic series of true stealth games set in a dark fantasy/steampunk world.

Experience the evil with new enhanced abilities and amazing equipment of Garret: incredible vision that enables him to steal and escape even in a dark place, the blackjack - a tool that he used to knock out the guards, and the arrows - which he uses either to confuse or silently dispatch guards. If you are a hardcore Thief player then you will be happy to know that many abilities in Thief (like slowing time) can be deactivated, and you will be rewarded for doing so. Turning off specific 'helpful features' before starting the campaign boosts your leaderboard point earnings. Become a thief and even the most guarded secrets will be within your grasp...

"What's yours is mine."

PlayStation®3 [Fighting]

Sakigake! Otokojuku aka Charge! Men's Private school is based on one of the most popular mangas ever featured in Shonen Jump; through volumnization, this series has actually outsold many other well known mangas in Japan.

Most likely due to it's parodic approach towards hyper nationalism and outdated manliness, this action packed arena fighter has many outrageous elements from the manga such as lots of pointless but manly seppuku, masculine chest motto carving, the "oil boat" male enhancer and lots and lots of ORAHS!

The special edition contains a hyper detailed figure of Danshaku Dino and the most coveted item of all: the THREE D Minmei Shobu - a manual for all men aka a Pop-up book!
