The NDS game features 3D action where newtype Gundam mechs speed off into 3D environments and hack/slash/blast at enemy forces. A variety of missions which feature targeted objectives mix up the action so that it's not just run 'n gun. There's also "fight and find" and "escort and protect" missions to contend with. All preorders will ship with a bonus Gundam EXIA FG Color 1/144 scale PVC toy which was given out in 50% ratio.
Nearly a year after the hiccup, Arc System finally "fixes" the problem with an append disc which includes new content to make it a worthwhile purchase. First off, two new characters rejoin the original roster - Kliff Undersn and Justice with their own unique storylines in the new story mode. Arc System touts that the spanking new Story Mode will feature voice acting and multiple scenarios which relay the unique tale of each GGXX fighter. A new Mission Mode has been added and the Gallery features one new cinema. This product listing is for the complete version of GGXXAC+ which boots directly on any Japanese PS2 console.

Phantasy Star II
Phantasy Star III
Phantasy Star IV
Phantasy Star II Text Adventures (8 episodes)
Similar to other Sega Ages 2500 releases, a Gallery section on the CD includes scans of instruction manuals, artwork, and other presentations from the Phantasy Star historical record. A leaflet which contains Phantasy Star information is also be inserted inside every copy of the game.
Umihara begins her travels on the lower-right corner of the game screen. By pressing the "SQUARE" or "O" button, a hook is shot out and tethered to platforms which then allows Ms Kawase to gain air, leap from ledge to ledge, and even perform actions reminiscent of a vine swinging muscle man. The "TRIANGLE" and "X" buttons make Umihara jump but it's only a little jump that's primarily used in conjunction with her grappling swings.
To provide adversity, enemy goldfish, lizards and other animals normally found in water mindlessly walk back and forth on platforms but the real challenge is gauging the lift and distance of each swing to reach nearby platforms. Umihara Kawase never sold big numbers in Japan but the original designers likely never targeted the game at a wide audience. The controls are quirky until you discover the hook's tension system and the feats that it allows Umihara to accomplish. Only then will players marvel at the intelligent design that went into the game and sing its praises...
MHP2G is a action-adventure game where players take control of a hunter who receives missions from the Guild. By fulfilling the missions, payment is earned which may then be used to buy better equipment. With better equipment, tougher tasks may be accomplished to earn even more coin. It's a vicious cycle of capital investment and monster hunting.
Features in Monster HP2G include:
» The ability to transfer data from Monster Hunter Portable - players will retain Felyne cooks, weaponry, armor, guild card data, and items.
» Three types of Felyne fighters may be hired as traveling companions. They'll also fight monsters alongside the player and provide support.
» A new area dubbed the Rain Forest with a unique mix of monsters.
» G-Class quests which feature G-rank monsters.
» Chunks of MHP2G game code (up to 1 GB) may be copied to memory stick and stored locally to improve loading times.

For the uninitiated, Raiden Fighters is the natural progression of the classic Raiden series with new ships, powerful upgradeable weaponry, and the ability to use the mighty Judge Spear from the Viper Phase 1 game.
The first printing of Raiden Fighters Aces will include a bonus "The Onslaught: Raiden Fighters Special Edition" Master Play DVD which captures the deft skills of a gamer who blows through the Raiden Fighters games with perfect precision and expert maneuvers.
