Namco's Nina Williams-starring Tekken prequel has finally been given the green light for a UK release by Sony.

Delta Force Black Hawk Down: Team Sabre, a sequel to last year's Black Hawk Down military shooter, has been announced for a PS2 release this November.
With the original game letting you play through the infamous US Army incident in Somalia in 1993 - when rebels shot down a Black Hawk helicopter and trapped a large group of US troops - this sequel is actually more like an expansion.
In fact Team Sabre was an expansion on PC. But it does come with 24 new maps for the
It's our Destiny to learn what the heck this game actually is...
You have to try and see it from both sides of the galactic divide. Do you think those Space Invaders wanted to march slowly from side to side? Do you believe that their only ambition in life was to clog the Earth's guns with their Invader dead? No, they had dreams, careers and families too.

THQ has released a new trailer of Destroy All Humans! 2 that shows how one little extraterrestrial can turn the Summer of Love on its head.

The '60s were a time of peace marches, mind expanding drugs and free love, so many of Crypto's targets are sandal-wearing tree huggers.
