Silicon Cover DS Lite AXing Version

Takara releases an Animal Crossing themed silicon cover for the NDS Lite which fetes the recent Axing theatrical film. The cover is colored clear white and adorned with a green acorn on top. Installation is very simple and once installed, the cover wraps around the entire NDS and provides a pliable and protective skin to guard against potential dangers and hazards. Openings that are cut into the cover allow for easy access to the various ports and inputs on the NDS Lite unit.

In addition to the silicon case, Takara-Tomy also throws in a thick barreled stylus holder that's topped with a little figure of Tanukichi. All preorders will ship today and new orders are welcome.

Ys Napishtim no Hako Special Edition

A little over a year after Konami shipped Ys Napishtim no Hako on the Japanese Playstation Portable, the company releases a "Special Edition" to market... at full price. Re-releases and S.E. variants are normally priced at a significant discount off the original game's retail price but Konami forges ahead in unblinking fashion. Essentially, the special edition of Ys Napishtim no Hako is the USA localization of the game re-released for the Japanese market. The updated features in the game are:

» New "Sealed Cavern" dungeon. To get there, find the Rehdan Feather and then visit Olha in Rehdan Village.

» Ark of Napishtim hero and heroine database of key characters.

» Ys Media Player which contains BGM and cinemas that have been unlocked during normal gameplay.

» Trial Mode aka Sealed Cavern mini-games where players endeavor to obtain more emelas, gold, or experience. A password based ranking mode is also included for the Trial Mode and the Time Attack mode.

Other updated features include a quick-save function, analog nub control, and faster loading times.
