London-based Tomb Raider publishers Eidos Interactive has launched a new video-game brand called Fresh Games specifically designed to introduce Japanese titles to the worldwide market . Fresh Games will launch with several high-quality Japanese video-games including Mr Moskeeto, Mad Maestro!, and Legaia 2: Duel Saga.

All three titles are being developed by Sony Computer Entertainment for the Playstation 2 games console and are scheduled to be released in Spring of 2002. "Fresh Games is considered a boutique label, created solely to expose gamers to unique and captivating gameplay experiences that traditionally have been unavailable outside of Japan. With Mister Mosquito, Mad Maestro! and Legaia 2, we will change people's perceptions of what constitutes a great game." says Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos PLC.

Mr Moskeeto, originally released as "KA" in Japan, is an action game for the PlayStation 2. You play as a mosquito, with an objective to continually torment a Japanese family every summer by sucking as much blood as possible in order to survive the cold winter. You must confront daily life and death battles with the Japanese family who are determined to rid themselves of the mosquito.

Mad Maestro!, originally released as "Bravo Music" in Japan, is a music/action title for the PlayStation 2. You take on the role of an orchestra conductor tasked with saving the town's Concert Hall from being destroyed by showing the city the orchestra's great performances.

Legaia 2: Duel Saga is the follow-up to Legend of Legaia, a martial-arts themed 3D role-playing game featuring a highly original battle system. You must create attacks by linking together different styles of hits directed at your enemies. When certain combinations of attacks are linked together powerful, magic-based attacks are formed.
