PSP K-ON! Houkago Live!! - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The light music club at Sakura High School is about to be extinguished due to lack of interest. When Ritsu Tainaka hears the bad news, she inducts her friend Mio Akiyama into the club and lures Tsumugi Kotobuki into the fold as well. All they need is one more member to keep the light music club alive and salvation lies in a student named Yui Hirasawa. The girls aren't particularly good at playing their instruments and Yui might be able to handle the castanets but she's made the guitarist of the group. Together, the students practice, grow musically, consume a lot of sweets, and eventually gain renown and recognition for their performances.

Sega's K-ON! Houkago Live!! rhythm game for the PSP features the original cast of K-ON! along with a fifth club member named
Azusa Nakano who may be seen on the center of the cover insert. Start a game and the cast of musicians appears in the background whilst music notes appear on the bottom of the screen. A cue marker moves from the left to the right and players are commanded to hit the face buttons on each musical note as the marker reaches it. Solo play is standard but up to five gamers may link up for a jam session where every member of the Light Music Club is represented.

Preorders are welcome to ship on September 30, 2010 at JPY5800 or US$62.90. Early preorders will include a bonus set of six stickers featuring the core characters from the manga/animation.

PSP K-ON! Houkago Live!! Accessory Set - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Sega's K-ON! Houkago Live!! game for the PSP is probably going to be big. Our indicator for its potential success is in the amount of merchandising that we've seen released in Japan over the past year. K-ON toy figures, plushes, plastic thingamabobs, and other products have all made it to market. When the K-ON! PSP game ships later this year, Hori will be right there with a K-ON! accessory kit which includes the following:

» Blue PSP carrying pouch which features the K-ON! quintet
» Five UMD cases which each sport an image of a K-ON! cast member
» Silicon PSP cover that's etched with a guitar design on the back

Preorders are welcome to ship on September 20, 2010.
