Spy x Anya: Operation Memories


SPY×ANYA also features over 15 minigames! Enjoy over 15 minigames, including ones inspired by the anime series and those created originally for the game! Fight to stay in sync with Yor’s special training, ride Bond as you play spy, and use Anya’s telepathic powers to read opponents’ cards in Tycoon.


A modern update for classic arcade racer Sprint and a new Luigi Mansion are the top attention seekers this week. Personally, I’m a little more into Neosprint, but I never count out Luigi or Nintendo. What about you? Are you looking forward to buying and playing any of these new releases?
