The latest DJ Max is a collaborative effort between Pentavision and Clazziquai which features new tracks as well as songs from the first two DJMax Portable games for a 48-song library to explore. Notable tracks include "Dark Envy" by Tsukasa, "I Want You" from Lin-G, "First Kiss" courtesy of BJJ, and "Color" by Clazziquai.
Game Modes include Club Tour, Arcade, Network, Collection, and Link Disk, and Album. Players may elect to play 2-button mode for beginners all the way up to 6-button mode for dextrous gamers capability of handling the extreme flow of falling cues. The Link Disc function allows gamers to use tracks from the earlier DJ Max Portable games.
The game may be played in Korean, English, or Japanese.
In addition to the regular edition of the game, NCS has also received the Special Package edition which is limited to only 5000 copies and ships with a really lengthy wall scroll. There are four types of scrolls which we'll give out randomly. Please note that the scrolls will ship separately.
«©NCSX» In 2007, artist Jun Tsukasa sculpted a "cat" girl named Hanako who dressed herself in a skimpy outfit which invoked a Holstein dairy cow. Fast forward a year later and Daiki Kougyo has announced their own rendition of Hanako Holstein which is similar to Megahouse's original rendition. The main differences are Hanako's leg positioning and her angelic demeanor as she stares directly into the eyes of a butterfly that has alighted on her finger. The original Hanako sculpture featured a Hanako who's expression can be described as somewhat maniacal. The figure measures 21cm or 8.26" tall and preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late Jan 2008.
«©NCSX» The Rance series of role-playing games from Alice Soft have been around for nearly two decades and has captured the fancies of Japanese gamers for a while now. The latest edition of Rance is titled Sengoku Rance which debuted in late 2006. One of the heroines in the game is a princess named Senhime who's appearance is evocative of KOS-MOS.
Senhime wears KOS-MOS-ish headgear, has a full bosom, and may be found in conflict-filled situations... which is uncannily similar to our favorite android from Xenosaga. Alter has started preorders for a rendition of Senhime which steps off of a pedestal while ivory-colored snakes wind upwards. The figure is set to 1/8 scale and measures 19.5cm or 7.67" in height. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late February 2008 at JPY7800 or US$93.50. The yen's on the rampage.
