Welcome to this week's Games & Toys update, our Thursday summary, where we are reviewing all related items released during the last 7 days.

It's been a hot last January week with more than 30 new titles that were published in Japan. Starting with PlayStation2™ releases, highlights have been Square-Enix's Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (Japanese/Asia), SNK Playmore's fighter Samurai Spirits: Tenkaichi Kenkakuten, Sony's motorbike racing simulation Tourist Trophy (Chinese Version) and Capcom's sword action game Shin Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams (supporting English/Japanese language settings).

The hottest handheld game release in this week has certainly been Sega's anime based Bleach DS: Souten ni Kakeru Unmei (NDS™). Additionally, one new toy has become available at Play-Asia during the last 7 days (Megahouse's Game Character Collection Tekken 5 Round 1), plus a number of interesting video game related soundtracks (including the Kingdom Hearts II OST album).
