Since ancient times, people have believed the moon to be the throne of God, and have prospered by harvesting its energy. This is the story of a world where the destiny of man is bound to that of the moon. One fateful day, the moon was chained to the earth by an army of men calling themselves the Order of Chains. Led by a man whom the awestruck people christened the Dreadknight, the Order proceeded to ravage the land, and all lived in fear.
Our story begins deep within a forest, inside a prison governed by the Order of Chains. A boy named Capell is being held captive having been mistaken for a hero of the people... Suddenly, a girl named Aya comes to Capell’s rescue, helping him to escape. She is a companion of Sigmund, a hero dedicated to ending the tyranny of the Order of Chains. When they meet soon after, Capell and Sigmund discover to their astonishment that they are virtually identical in appearance... like twins.
Capell’s life is about to change forever. Unbeknown to him, he is destined to decide the fate of the world.
NOTE: Due to split import shipments from Japan, please note that we'll process and ship 1/2 of our reservations today and the remainder on Fri.
Konami has released five Quiz Magic Academy games in arcades thus far so it's only proper that they adapt the game for the home market. Important critical mass now lies in the Nintendo DS so that's the platform of choice for a game which features 70,000 questions (in Japanese) and Wi-Fi compatibility for online play against other connected gamers. Special events may be triggered to unlock animated sequences and a new "Academy Mode" features new characters who were designed exclusively for the DS conversion.
Rikimaru and Ayame are back as stealth assassins who skulk in dark places and attack with sword slashes and one-hit killing blows. Tenchu 4 emphasizes the use of stealth and the game provides a bevy of shadowy places to hide, wait, and attack from. Unsuspecting enemies who approach Rikimaru's general vicinity but are unaware of his presence may be killed with a single killing stroke. Tenchu's original developer Acquire returns to the franchise that they built and is developing Tenchu 4 with Wii Remote and Nunchuk waving controls so players can eviscerate enemies with realistic stabbing motions. Preorders are welcome to ship on October 23, 2008 at JPY6800 or US$63.90 from NCS.
| Pokemon Platinum Tomorrow |
Our shipment of Nintendo's latest Pokemon game will arrive on Friday and we'll process and ship preorders tomorrow. The official street date is Saturday in Japan but vendors were able to ship the game last night.
Japanese Supplier Update
| EBay Suspension |
We didn't think we had much of a following on Ebay but once they suspended us yesterday, a volley of email came in asking if our account had gone the way of the dodo. We didn't know the account had been suspended until the first customer email arrived on Wednesday morning.
Ebay suspended "ncsxshop" because our listing for the Japanese Gamecube version of Donkey Konga Jungle Beat contained a reference to the Datel Freeloader boot disc. Apparently, advising prospective customers that a USA Gamecube requires the use of the Freeloader to play Japanese imports is considered encouraging copyright infringement in Ebay's eyes. At least we weren't accused of racketeering. The suspension will be for seven days from yesterday so our account will be active again on September 16. Perhaps the suspension will allow NCS' Ebay customers to seek out our shopping sites directly.
