Friday is almost upon us and what better way to celebrate the weekend than with three new Xbox 360 titles. Project Sylpheed, Vampies Rain and Tenchu Z all to be released this Friday 29th June. Microsoft want to make sure you can Master your Environments at a special website.

Project Sylpheed
It is 2632, five hundred years after humanity first left the boundaries of Earth’s Solar System. The human race has expanded outward into the galaxy, terraforming planets to make them habitable and eventually colonizing 11 different star systems under the banner of the Terra Central Government (TOG)

The TOG’s imperial rule is a benefit to humanity as a whole, but many of her colonized planets are systems are hungry for independence. Calling themselves the ADAN Freedom Alliance, four of these rebel systems declare war on the TOG and launch a series of ferocious attacks using the latest and the most dangerous interstellar weaponry.

The cosmos-spanning conflict is intensely personal for three of the TOG’s up-and-coming ace pilots: Katana Faraway, Ellen Bemstein, and Margras Mason. All three were close friends in the TOG’s pilot training academy until they were separated by the unstable political situation on Margras’s home planet – Acheron. Soon after, Acheron is destroyed in a suspicious terraforming accident that kills most of the population and renders the planet uninhabitable. This drives an anguished Margras to join the ADAN fleet, where he participates in several merciless raids against his former comrades.

ADAN Chairman Doris Egan also seeks personal revenge for the Acheron disaster, which claimed the life of her father. Under her direction, ADAN forces fight not only for independence from the TOG, but also to punish Earth itself as payback for Acheron.

Katana and Ellen face almost certain death as the conflict rages across the galaxy. The enemy is well-trained, well-equipped and highly motivated, and as the vengeful ADAN fleet closes in on Earth, each new battle brings Katana and Ellen closer to a final confrontation with Margras.

Tenchu Z
Master the Ancient art of Stealth in Tenchu Z using your keen senses and wide array of Ninja weaponry to become the Ultimate Ninja Assassin. Immerse yourself in Feudal Japan as you take on more than 50 different missions to assassinate wrong doers, gather info, track enemies and collect or destroy targets. Customize your ninja by earning new costumes, accessories and power ups as you successfully complete each mission. Play solo offline or 2-4 multiplayer co-op via Xbox Live or System Link


Work cooperatively for a completely different ninja experience. Team up with a friend to finish off your foe. Let a friend subdue him from behind as you run him through with your katana.

Use sound, smell and sight to master the “Stealth Kill.” Scale walls, fly over rooftops and spring from the shadows to attack without detection as you eliminate even the toughest opponents with one devastating blow.

Vampires Rain
Every year, millions of people around the world simply disappear without a trace. And in most case, they are never heard from again.

Up until the discovery of the creatures known as Nightwalkers, these individuals were classified as missing. After realizing that the missing were actually victims, it took mankind almost a hundred more years to understand the true nature of the Nightwalkers threat.

Lacking an effective deterrent against the nightwalkers, mankind choose a non-violent, passive course of action. But as the Nightwalkers attacks escalated, this nonresistant stance was no longer acceptable. In the United States, the American Information Bureau (AIB) secretly established a special combat unit for eliminating the Nightwalker menace.

In an effort to reduce Nightwalker population, the AIB has targeted a city located on the West Coast. It’s an urban maze where streets reek with the cloyingly sweet aroma of Nightwalker infestation.

Tonight those streets are clouded by falling rain, which will dampen the senses of Nightwalkers. It’s a night where a battle is about to unfold…One mankind cannot afford to lose!

If you can’t wait until Friday you can start mastering your environment on Microsoft’s Xbox Live Marektplace with brand-new demos of Tenchu Z and Project Sylpheed with a Vampire Rain Demo coming August 7th. Let us know what you think by leaving your comments below.
