Nintendo 3DS™ [Rhythm]

Rhythm Tengoku: The Best + is the fourth game in the Rhythm Heaven franchise, which first began way back as a Japan-only Gameboy Color title, and will contain a mashup of music mini-games, including 70 different minigames from the previous three games, and 30 new minigames that are new additions to the series for that 'Best of' feeling.

The controls are very easy to learn and understand. Players use the A button, B button, and cross pad. If you prefer tapping with a stylus there is a touch screen mode.

In the story mode of this game, the player helps a character named Tebiri back to their hometown by playing and beating each rhythm based minigame that is presented to the player.

This game features co-operative play where specific minigames will be able to be played with up to four players total. The game will reportedly use the Download Play feature, meaning some games can be played even if only one person owns the game.

Nintendo3DS™ [RPG]

Selling over an impressive 1.8 million units worldwide, not only did Fire Emblem Awakening revitalize Nintendo's flagship tactical turned based RPG, it proved to the video game community that hardcore games on a handheld still had a huge audience.

With the long standing mechanic of permanent death for units lost in the fray, what transpired was something RPG games try to do but often fail at: creating deep emotional bonds between the player and their characters. And with this success, the newest iteration of Fire Emblem will arrive soon, with features poised to change this series even further!

The main character will be a customizable avatar created by the player. This time, your created character is the game’s main character, rather than a secondary character like previous titles. The story sees the Hoshido and Nohr kingdoms at war. It's up to the player to decide which side to take—whether to follow their bloodline versus their loyalty. The path you choose ultimately decides your character's fate.

The two story lines are split into two separate titles in Japan: Fire Emblem If: White Kingdom and Fire Emblem If: Black Kingdom. If you buy one version, you’ll be able to purchase the other at a reduced cost as downloadable content game.

Nintendo DS™ [2D Sidescroller]

Following on the success of Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin the legendary Castlevania series brings back the intense side-scrolling action gameplay that we love to the Nintendo DS console under the master production of Koji Igarashi! 

This time around you will play as a member of the Ecclesia, an organization that has sworn to defeat the evil forces of Dracula. Players will make use of the 'Glyph attack' combat system, which has more than 100 different combinations that can be executed simultaneously during battle with Dracula and his minions.

Take part in numerous side-quests and collect items to power up your character as you explore 20 different challenging areas, from the forests to the ocean. With multiple endings, you'll need more than one play through to get the full experience!

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

The stage is set in Europe around 1930s. In this alternate universe, Europe was split into the “East European Empire Union” and the “Atlantic Ocean federal Organization” and for years and years, these two superpowers have been seeking to unify Europe through a large scale war, named European War II (E.W.II). Heroes often emerge in these chaotic times, and in a small, neutral country, Galia, such a young man came forward to join the fight.

Galia was falling under the onslaught of the Empire's overwhelming forces, but before the enemies could take the capital, Welkin Gunther, the leader of a small army faction thwarted the military giant's plans and entered historical records as a hero.

The screens in the game are filled with a dusky tint, the lines are smooth and the palette is subdued yet warm. Aside from its distinctive graphics, the sounds in the game is just as impressive. The epic storyline coupled with the rich graphics and sounds supported by the third generation consoles creates a world that players immerse themselves fully into.

Senjou no Valkyria is a turn based RPG that combines strategy with action. Proceed with the game the way you read a history book. Read the text and get involved in the battle parts, depending on the options you have chosen or the battles you have fought, the game rewards you with more chapters to your "book".

Nintendo 3DS™

In this one party comedy, one part assassination game, players create their own avatar to become a student of class 3-E, interact with the characters from the manga, and above all: set traps to try to kill your very own teacher!!

Missions are cleared if the player assassinates Koro-Sensei within the time limit. When missions begin, the player must look around the map for items, traps and weapons to use to complete their goal. Weapons include hand guns, knives, grenades, and even a rocket launcher. Some traps can hurt Koro-Sensei, while other items, such as gelato, juice, or erotic books can stall him. Classmates can team up, but watch out because Koro-Sensei can attack back!

The  overall goal is to kill Koro-Sensei by trapping him in triangles, which players create by swiping between three or more class 3-E students. The students have different skills, such as guns or knives, that have different effects.
