Sony is pushing the Resistance series in Japan by launching Resistance Retribution before we get it and bundling Dualshock 3 controllers with Resistance 2. Microsoft counters the Chimera assault with… the Idolm@ster? Two budget re-releases of the Xbox 360 Idolm@ster also come out in Japan this week.
While we’re in the eye of an RPG tsunami Japan is in an RPG drought with only Atelier Annie and a Phantom Brave port to satiate this week. Speaking of ports, Koei’s extended version of Warriors Orochi entitled Musou Orochi Z for Japan and Nintendo has Pikmin 2 ready to ship. Rittai Picross and it’s block twisting puzzles looks like the game for me this week.
What about you? Anything worth importing? Or are the domestic releases of Resident Evil 5, Madworld, and Avalon Code enough?
