This Week In Imports: Soulcalibur vs. Dream Club


image After a few slow weeks Japan is back on track with a slew of portable releases and a few console games.


Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny seems like this week’s big game, but Dream Club might be able to climb the sales charts by appealing to the [email protected]ster crowd that already owns Xbox 360s. Either way Namco Bandai wins since D3 Publisher, the company publishing Dream Club, is now a Namco Bandai subsidiary.


Speaking of Namco Bandai what’s up with Go Go Cosmo Cops aka AcroKnights? The game will debut in PAL territories and it currently doesn’t have a US release or even a Japanese release date.


Lots of games are coming out in North America this week like Mana Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy, the next installment of Professor Layton and of course Dissidia: Final Fantasy.
