 3DS Super Pokemon Scramble - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In Pokemon Rumble for the Nintendo Wii, players controlled a lowly Pokemon who battled or recruited other Pokemon in a bid to win a rollicking Battle Royale.

Once new Pokemon join the team, they can be controlled and leveled-up to be all that they can be in the Pokemon Corps. Game modes include "Charge Battle," "Battle Royale," and "Pokemon Collection Battle."
   Preorders are welcome to ship on July 28, 2011 at JPY4310 or US$63.90 from NCS.

 Wii Inazuma Eleven Strikers - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Endo Mamoru and Shuya Goenji are back to lead their soccer team in an upcoming Wii release of Inazuma Eleven Strikers. The game was originally slated for released in April but Level 5 decided to postpone the ship date to buff up the soccer action. Unlike its NDS predecessors, the Wii Inazuma Eleven game is a pure soccer game without any of the strategic considerations found in the portable handheld versions. Up to four players can cooperate in the game to pummel the soccer ball and score goals like a coordinated gang.

   The game features a cast of over 150 characters from the Inazuma Eleven franchise and action-packed fight scenes during the game add an extra dimension of excitement to the kicking antics. In addition to standard moves and feints, special finishing moves may be enacted to score or overpower the opposing team.

   Preorders are welcome to ship on July 16, 2011.
Please note Japanese Wii games will not boot on USA or European Wii consoles due to the inherent region-lockout on Japanese Wii game discs. A Freeloader (and a Wii with 3.2U firmware) is required to play Japanese Wii games.

 Wii Minna No Rhythm Tengoku - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The original Rhythm Tengoku was a Gameboy Advance game that seemed exceedingly simple but required a modicum of skill to succeed. The deceptive simplicity continued on the Nintendo DS with Rhythm Tengoku Gold and another simple yet challenging affair is headed to the Nintendo Wii.
   Nintendo is putting its programming chops into the upcoming Minna no Rhythm Tengoku which features another collection of mini-games that require only a single button press or two to play. Sounds simple, right? It's not. The games require precision timing and exacting inner rhythm in order to beat. Some games in the new Rhythm Tengoku include:

» Screw the heads on robots on a conveyer belt
» Stab a fork on peas that are shot from someone's energetic finger
» Slice ornery demons who are hopping out of a black cloud
» Play racquetball while seated on a plane that's skimming the clouds
» Smack golf balls that are served onto the tee by a pair of simians

Preorders are welcome to ship on July 21, 2011 at JPY5800 or US$80.90 from NCS.
