NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Yoko Ritona of Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann fame is second only to Kanu Unchou from Ikkitousen in terms of the amount of toys she has engendered in Japan over the past two years. Yoko has her own Figma, MMS, and Revoltech toys as well as numerous figures from the usual PVC purveyors. However one Revoltech isn't enough. No, a second Revoltech is demanded by the fan base and Kaiyodo obliges with the Revoltech Fraulein No. 016: Gurren Lagann - 'Movie' Yoko Action Figure (No Boota Version) which ships this summer.
The new 1/10 scale Revoltech measures 15cm or roughly 6" in height and features 19 points of articulation so she's highly posable. Upon removing Yoko from her encasement, she's found prone on a plastic tray with an assortment of weaponry arrayed next to her. There's a sniper rifle, a hand gun, and hair pins. NCS is aware that hair pins aren't generally used as weapons but they can be in Yoko's capable hands. She's the kind of girl who doesn't just get even, she gets stabby. Preorders have shipped as of yesterday and new orders are welcome to ship today.

«©NCSX» Hanzo, Fuuma, Rasputin, and the rest of the World Heroes gang have been around for a long time. The original game bowed in Japanese arcades on July 28, 1992 and joined the flood of fighting games that were making their way to market at the time. While not wildly successful, SNK drove the World Heroes brand to four incarnations before the final game - World Heroes Perfect - was released on May 25, 1995. The four games included in the collection are:
» World Heroes / Originally released on July 28, 1992
» World Heroes 2 / Originally released on April 26, 1993
» World Heroes 2 Jet / Originally released on April 26, 1994
» World Heroes Perfect / Originally released on May 25, 1995
Twelve years after WHP thrilled dedicated fans with its motley assortment of characters, SNK Playmore collects all four World Heroes and stamps them onto a single DVD. In addition to the original games, SNK also adds a Death Match Mode to the first two World Heroes releases and allows players to challenge each other on the Multi-Matching BB Service. Similar to previous Neo Geo Online collections, a character color edit function is a standard feature where any fighter's color scheme may be changed according to your whim. Finally, the soundtracks for the four games may be toggled from the default Standard to Arrange versions.

«©NCSX» SNK pretty much produced all of the software for the Neo-Geo gaming hardware. There were some third-party publishers who supported the platform but it was up to SNK to keep the games rolling consistently on both the MVS and AES Neo-Geo formats. One of Neo-Geo's supporters was Sunsoft which produced a bevy of games for the Famicom, Mega-Drive, and Super Famicom back in the day but the company also gave the Neo-Geo a shot with two fighting games:
» Galaxy Fight - Eight motley fighters (emphasis intended on the word motley) fight with punches, lasers, and kicks on different planets.
» Waku Waku Seven - An enjoyable fighting game which features a cast of seven likable combatants such as the floppy Mauru.
SNK digs both games out of Sunsoft's archives and re-releases them on the PS2. Per usual Neo-Geo Online Collection convention, both games have been updated with an online fighting mode (BB Multi-Matching), a character color-edit facility, and the ability to view a fighter's complete list of moves at any time by pausing the game.

«©NCSX» SNK has compiled nearly all of their fighting games onto "Neo Geo Online Collections" over the past few years including King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, and even World Heroes Perfect. Love for Samurai Spirits was lacking. Until now. A collection of six Samurai Spirits titles mastered on a single DVD ships this week at the price of JPY4800. The games are:
» Samurai Spirits
» Shin Samurai Spirits: Haohmaru Jigokuhen
» Samurai Spirits: Zankuro Musouken
» Samurai Spirits: Amakusa Kourin
» Samurai Spirits Zero
» Samurai Spirits: Tenkaichi Kenkakuden
Succinctly, that's Samurai Shodown 1-6 in canonical order. Game features include 2-player online bouts, original and newly arranged BGM, character color editing, a practice mode, and the ability to check out special moves at any time by pausing the game. Take note that the version of SS Tenkaichi Kenkakuden included in the compilation is an Atomiswave port, not the original PS2 conversion of the game which was released on Jan 26, 2006.
