It will be joined by Time and Eternity, a hand-drawn PS3 RPG from NIS America, that other Japanese RPG powerhouse.

Fans of action games will be happy to know that another Dynasty Warriors game will be available in stores this week. Dynasty Warriors 8 will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360. In other action news, somebody packaged all of the Serious Sam games together for the Xbox 360-exclusive The Serious Sam Collection.

Turbo: Super Stunt Squad, a game based on the DreamWorks animated film of the same name, will be available to download for the 3DS and Wii U. Finally, Shin Megami Tensei IV, the latest game in the popular RPG series from Atlus, will also be added to the 3DS eShop.

Nintendo and Atlus have also teamed up to offer a big bonus if you purchase Shin Megami Tensei IV by August 31. If you buy the game and you already own Fire Emblem: Awakening (or if you purchase it by August 31), you’ll receive a $30 eShop credit. Score!
