Weekly Japanese Game Releases: Fate/Extra CCC, Oboro Muramasa, Dragon Quest X, Game & Wario, Megpoid the Music, Dungeon Travelers 2 & Seekers of Adoulin!

Welcome to our Weekly Japanese Games Release Update! Featured is a list of exciting games that are out this week from Japan - there is definitely something for everyone this time around!


PlayStation®Vita [Action Role-Playing]

Originally released exclusively on the Nintendo Wii™, Muramasa: The Demon Blade was gem of a game. With a lush and detailed hand drawn approach made famous by developer Vanillaware, players were mesmerized as they tracked down 108 unique katana blades in yokai infested feudal Japan.

Re-mastered for the Vita with HD graphics, this port features tighter controls, four new DLC scenarios and four new playable protagonists. ​Oboromuramasa - dubbed Muramasa Rebirth for the West - is a game that cannot be missed.

Sony PSP™ [Rhythm Action]

A new challenger steps up to the Vocaloid arena; Gumi/Megpoid finally debuts in her very own game! Though often left in the shadows to the more popular of Vocaloids such as Miku, Rin and Len, Gumi's once lackluster exposure is a thing of the past. With recent real world chart commanding hits like Megu Megu Fire Endless Night, experience why this green-haired dynamo deserves your attention!

With 4 player simultaneous play, unlockable illustrations and costumes, room decoration characteristic of the DIVA series, special edition exclusive petanko and puchikko mini figures and melismatic Vocaloid songs, Megpoid the Music Sharp is a game no Vocaloid fan will miss. 

Could this be the Vocaloid who topples Hatsune Miku? Drama!

Nintendo WiiU™ [Party]

Wario and his Diamond City friends are back for more microgame party madness! Game & Wario features a collection of 16 games made purposely to take advantage of the interaction between the Wii U GamePad and TV. Each game retains the original flair and character of the micro-games from the WarioWare series. Two microgame examples:  

Arrow - shoot all the enemies on the screen with a Wario Moustache™ bow before they reach the end of the screen creeping into your gamepad stealing all your strawberries!

Fruit - One player picks an onscreen character from a dense crowd who becomes a fruit thief; upon stealing all the fruity loot, up to 4 other friends are tasked with accusing who the thief is. It's time to scream "STOP THIEF! YOU HAVE BROKEN THE LAW" in a totally different context! 

"This game is like slam dancing tarantula style." - Wario

Nintendo WiiU™ [MMORPG]

And the world stops turning for the tenth time once again, as the long awaited DraQue is finally out. All commerce shall seize globally as Dragon Quest X is the first time that this acclaimed series ventures forth into an MMORPG.

Despite this colossal leap, Square Enix has ensured that the original charm of the game has not been lost; the MMORPG elements of Dragon Quest X are accessible for all types of players. There are six different races: Human, Ogre, Elf, Dwarf, Puklipo, and Weddie. There is also an open-world environment spanning five continents with randomized towns, enemies, quests and secrets; players can even join a party of four and socialize, barter, puff-puff - all this while they unveil the mysteries in a new-to-DraQue world named Astoltia!

PlayStation2™/ Xbox360™ [MMORPG Expansion]

As the last ever disc to be released for the venerable PlayStation2™, perhaps it is apt that this disc has an association with Final Fantasy. Nomenclature aside, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Final Fantasy XI, Seekers of Adoulin is the fifth expansion featuring two brand new jobs: the mystical Geomancer and the versatile Rune Fencer. Though it has been announced that Seekers of Adoulin will not be available outside of Japan, Final Fantasy XI: Adoulin No Makyou Kakuchou is the perfect way to end the illustrious era of the PlayStation2™.

Sony PSP™ [Japanese Role-Playing]

Dungeon Crawling has traditionally been an activity solely monopolized by glory hungry oily aggro beefcakes. It's because of this bias which makes Dungeon Traveler 2 so different - so enticing. Completely deconstructing gender bias and taking it to the opposite extreme, venture with five stunning girls of your choosing and lead them into visceral battle in this harem manga dating sim inspired JRPG. Travel into the many romantic dank dungeons that pleasantly set the mood for love, chart intricate maps just in case the fantasy is too much, and go forth on an epic premise of capturing fiends into your magical books in Dungeon Traveler 2! The special edition comes with an Ouritsu Toshokan Meibo Material Collection Artbook, the Royal Arrange Soundtrack CD, an Original Drama CD and a Trump. A Trump!

Sony PSP™ [Japanese Role-Playing]

A companion title to the popular Fate/Extra property, CCC is an unexpected turn towards the darkness. Expect to see the servants of Fate/Extra act in ways that surprise, seduce and reveal a part of themselves - something fans would have not expected. 

Fate/Extra CCC is extremely feature top heavy: the Virgin White Edition has a Saber Bride figma, visual works book with illustrations from the game, a character song CD performed by Saber’s voice actress Sakura Tange, and the PSP game comes in a specially designed custom box. First print adopters will also recieve a beautiful booklet with cover drawn by Arco Wada. Both editions - Virgin White and Regular - will also come with a set of 4 servant stickers as an added incentive - not that fans need an incentive to pick up the alluring experience that is Fate/Extra CCC.
