Expected Release Date: Q2 2011

Tropico 4 is a city-building sim game set on a Caribbean island called Tropico. Take on the role of "El Presidente" and make major decisions for your city, such as economics, construction, and even how to deal with your political adversaries. To help you in your ambitions, you can appoint a "Council of Ministers" to vote on laws and things. If you aren't morally opposed to a little corruption, you can use your influence to "encourage" council members to vote in ways you find beneficial.

Tropico 4 adds a new 20-mission campaign, even brings Facebook and Twitter integration so you can brag about your tropical domination to all of your friends. And an online leaderboard will let you compare your dictator skills with others around the world.

Systems: Xbox 360, PS3
Expected Release Date: Summer 2011

Record of Agarest War Zero is the prequel to Record of Agarest War – taking place 1,000 years before the original. This strategic RPG, fused with some dating sim elements, is currently unavailable in North America, but that will change this summer when Idea Factory brings it to the Western world.

Record of Agarest War Zero follows a family through two generations. Your selection of a wife in the first generation will affect the skills that your offspring will have, so choose wisely when selecting a bride. As you grow closer to your female companions - your potential future wives - their outfits change their relationship status.

In Japan, the Xbox 360 version had additional content unavailable to PS3 owners. In the western iteration, all the bonus costumes and fun little things will ship with both versions of the game. Check our preview out here.
