Bayonetta (PS3/X360)

Bayonetta is a cinematic, stylized third person action game from the famed creative mind of renowned game developer, Hideki Kamiya of PlatinumGames. Bayonetta, the game's protagonist, is a graceful, gun-wielding witch who awakens after being entombed in a coffin at bottom of a lake for 500 years with no memory. As players embark on this quest with Bayonetta, they will begin to unfold the mystery behind her past and her purpose in the game, such as why she fights against angels and other countless fantastic enemies. In combat, Bayonetta uses weapons, magic, acrobatics and her larger-than-life hair to redefine the look and feel of the action genre.

Fast Food Panic (NDS)

Fast Food Panic puts players behind the grill as an entrepreneur of a small, lively new restaurant. Those who impress customers with superior service and fantastic meals will find their restaurant growing, their kitchen overflowing with orders and turning their hole in the wall restaurant into a culinary empire.

In order to move up the restaurant ladder, players will have to woo their patrons by perfecting their pizza-tossing, burger-grilling, and sushi-rolling skills. As their restaurant’s popularity and reputation increases, not only will gamers have to juggle cooking multiple meals at once, but they will also have to take on the additional responsibilities of taking out the trash, calculating checks, chasing away pests, and washing dishes to make sure their customers’ experience is perfect.

“What’s especially great about Fast Food Panic is that both Wii and Nintendo DS versions bring their own unique pizzazz to the table,” said Aubrey Norris, Product Marketing Manager at SouthPeak. “They're not simply ports of the same game. The two versions contain different recipes, mini games, and tasks. Fast Food Panic on Wii is more about bringing the whole family together with a variety of fun, competitive mini games like competing to catch the most fish and racing to deliver orders the fastest. There's even an option of playing the story mode in co-op with another player. For those who prefer more independent, on-the-go fun, Fast Food Panic for Nintendo DS is sure to satisfy that craving with increasingly difficult challenges and a grand assortment of recipes. Fast Food Panic is an unadulterated cooking frenzy that anyone and everyone will enjoy.”

Fast Food Panic, rated E for everyone, is available now on NDS and ships January 19, 2010 for Wii, both versions have a suggested retail price of $29.99.
