Shipping today: Metal Slug 6, Minna no Tennis, Rurouni Kenshin: Enjou! Kyoto Rinne, Ridge Racers 2, Wi-Fi Taiou Yakuman DS, Aquazone & more

Ridge Racers 2 contains 24 courses found in its predecessor, as well as all the courses until R4, to make a total of 42 courses, a record high for the series. Not only drifting feels so thrilling, but the operation is still so easy and simple, and the graphical changes are refreshing as well. Exterior appearances like courses and cars are not only realistic but the sensation of speed has also been increased. In addition, another feature of Ridge Racer is the temporal use of nitro to accelerate after accumulating sufficient charge from drifting. Using this, not only can the winning gap be widened within a short while, but one can also turn defeat into victory in critical times.

Ridge Racers 2 for PSP™ is available today as Japanese language Version Asia release at US$ 42.90 only. The Japanese Version is expected later this week, an English language Version Asia release is on preorder to ship later this year at a yet unconfirmed date. Also on preorder is the Ridge Racers 2 Direct Audio soundtrack album.

Metal Slug 6 is the latest arcade platform action hit from SNK Playmore, finally ported to PlayStation2™. Metal Slug 6 has originally been released on Atomiswave hardware, which is the first main game in the franchise not to run on SNK's Neo Geo MVS arcade hardware.

Metal Slug 6 is both a departure and a return of sorts for the series. Whereas Metal Slug 4 dealt with technological and cybernetic themes and Metal Slug 5 possessed a paranormal motif, Metal Slug 6 returns to the Rebel-Martian alliance featured in Metal Slugs 2, X, and 3, but on a much broader scale. Rather than repeating the previous games' events of the Martians breaking the alliance and the Rebels assisting the player in turn, the player now teams up with the Rebels and Martians to combat an even greater threat.

SNK Playmore's Metal Slug 6 for PlayStation2™ is in stock today, available at US$ 64.90.

    From the publisher: After the turmoil of the Bakumatsu Period, Japan stepped into the Meiji Era. In a certain sword dojo in Tokyo, a traveling swordsman appeared, and the story thus began… The evil devil-of-a-man Shishio Makoto and his subordinates attempted to overthrow the Meiji government. And in order to stop their ambition, Himura Kenshin, Saito Hajime and Sagara Sanosuke ventured to Kyoto, each with his individual feelings. This production is based on the Kyoto part, separated into "Kenshin Story", "Saito Story" and "Sanosuke Story", with the player controlling the respective main character in each story to play a sword clashing action game. The hatred, gratitude, love of Japan's Bakumatsu Period reignite into flames from ashes here!
