AU Shippin' Out September 25-27: WoW: Mists of Pandaria and Dead or Alive 5

Will you heed the call from Pandaria, kick a goal, or shred some wicked licks?


Almost all the platforms and genres feel the love this week, with an MMORPG, fighting game, sports title and rhythm product hitting the shelves!

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria is the fourth expansion for the long running Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG), World of Warcraft. The title introduces a new playable race: the Pandaren; a new class--the monk; and a fresh continent to explore. The level cap has also been raised to 90.

Earlier last week, Blizzard revealed Aussie launch times, and that the game would be available for purchase at retailers on September 25 from 9 a.m.

Fighting game Dead or Alive 5 steps into the ring this week on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The latest instalment in the fighting game series features destructible arenas, a new rock-paper-scissors fighting mechanic, and playable guest characters from Sega's Virtua Fighter games, including Akira and Sarah Bryant.
