PlayStation®Vita [RPG]

Based on the venerable Madou Monogatari series and the first of its kind to be localized, prepare your appetite!

Voila: introducing the Hot and Spicy, Everything Nicey Limited Edition! Featuring a themed spoon, curry bowl and bib, take a break from randomly generated dungeons and a deep rogue-like experience by uh... eating curry while searching for the secret of the ultimate curry recipe! Curry!

Xbox360™ [SHMUPS]

2D SHMUPS are the foundation of a lot of modern gaming, and as one of the defining titles of it's age we welcome the return of Shooting Love! Created by Triangle Service, the Shooting Love Collection is a great way to experience a different era of games on your Xbox 360. The collection includes Shooting Love 200x and 10th Anniversary Shooting Love with the added bonus of the original soundtrack! Don't be fooled, that is 6 different arcade games rolled into one plus a collection of shmups minigames with XBLA functionality! 

Shooting Love 200x: First released in 2009, Shooting Love 200x includes 4 different SHMUPS arcade games: ExzealTrizeal RemixMinus Zero, and the ever-popular SHMUPS Skill Test. The Skill Test is essentially a gauntlet that tests your mettle as a SHMUPS gamer (with a 'shooting age' score)! A truly unique set of games, Shooting Love 200x lacks the graphical fidelity of AAA titles but makes up for it in leaps and bounds by keeping true to classic arcade gameplay.

10th Anniversary Shooting Love: Announced very quietly, and probably missed by the majority of gamers, the 10th Anniversary Shooting Love includes both XIIZeal (originally released as XII Stag) and ΔZEAL (originally released as G Stream 2020) - again two classic vertical shooters with standard power ups like wide shot, laser, homing missiles, and bombs you can use to blast through stages. Known for the constant barrage of enemies Triangle Service titles are one of our favorite SHMUPS outlets!

PlayStation®3 PS®Vita [Hack N Slash]

It should be mentioned for Gundam fans that Shin Gundam Musou, the sequel to Gundam Musou, is the first ever Gundam title released for the Vita. And like all the Musou games, players can expect the exciting and addicting style of gameplay wherein it's one versus a million! 

And speaking of a million, featured in Shin Gundam Musou are many of the anime series staples; making strong appearances in this game are characters from SEED, SEED DESTINY and Unicorn as these are the new arcs meant for dramatization in Official Mode. Previous returning arcs such as Z and OO will have more characters and cutscenes as compared to previous titles. As well, footage from the original anime will be spliced throughout the game!

For gameplay changes, the addition of the "Burst System" makes for great replay value; depending on which pilot is selected for a Mobile Suit, different stats and abilities will reveal themselves. As well, what was once known as a Partner Strikes have been renamed "Combination Burst," and this can be done in tandem with summoned support from warships. Furthermore, space combat makes a comeback, and ace pilots can move their bases around for added strategic value.
