 PS3 Asura's Wrath - New Import

From the Publisher
   With unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction, Asura’s Wrath™ will deliver a fresh take on the action gaming genre.Once a revered deity, Asura was betrayed by his fellow gods and stripped of all his powers. Consumed by anger at the injustice he has suffered and swearing vengeance, Asura discovers he can use this fury to his advantage and turn it against his enemies. Cue relentless action as Asura finds himself facing off against numerous unique enemies, including planetary sized bosses, unleashing devastating and visceral attacks.

   Asura’s Wrath loses the traditional distinction between gameplay and cutscenes through seamless player controlled narrative. Simply put, even in cinematic sequences the player can control Asura, directly affecting the gameplay, making Asura’s Wrath a truly unique experience.

• New type of action game – Asura’s Wrath will seamlessly blend action and narrative and will adopt an episodic nature, more akin to a TV drama series.
• Relentless action – Asura’s Wrath keeps placing gamers in tight situations and says ‘now get out of that’.
• What the…? – Unique enemies and planetary sized bosses will continually challenge players’ expectations.
• Innovative setting and story – Fusing Asian mythology with sci-fi , Asura’s Wrath’s universe will be truly unique.
• Collaboration with CyberConnect2 – Continues Capcom’s strategy of partnering with the best developers to produce titles to complement its own internal projects.

 PS3 Gal*Gun - New Import, Shipping Today

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» You remember high school, right? Raging hormones, bitchy cliques, craptastic lunches, and that time the gym teacher told you to do just one pull-up in front of that girl you liked. Her name was Jane. You couldn't do that pull-up and Jane never looked at you the same again.

    Gal Gun is high school all over again but with a twist. You're a high school student who the girls are crazy about because hormones are raging. Expressive girls in thigh-high hosiery are the "attackers" in Gal*Gun and your job is to fend them off in a 3D shooting game from Alchemist. Since the girls are aggressive, they charge at the protagonist and your job is to shoot the girls with "love shots." Upon impact, the shots explode into hearts which halt the advances of the rampaging coeds. In addition to shooting the girls on their limbs and torso with normal shots, a sort of "sniper mode" may be activated to concentrate fire on special parts that won't be mentioned... because they're unmentionable.

    Reservations for the regular and limited editions of the game are shipping today.
