General Updates

NCS is not in Eagan, Minnesota
Last Friday, the helpful UPS representative assured us that one of our delayed shipments was in New York City. Fine, as long as it gets delivered on Monday, we're okay with the late delivery.

This morning, we tracked the shipment and we now see that the package went from Maspeth, NY to Eagan, MN on 11/23. We never bothered to open a subsidiary in Minnesota and we hear the winters are brutal so we'd never settle in. The only explanation that we could conclude was the infamous B-Team had struck again. We've spoken to UPS this morning and the packages should be re-routed later today back to New York for delivery tomorrow. Sincere apologies to our customers for the mess but we'll know never to ship with UPS ever again during the holidays. The B-Teams are just too brutal.
NCS Holiday Gift Gallery
Today is supposedly Cyber Monday. We think it's a crock since we noticed a substantial spike in sales starting in early November. However, to do our part, here's a round up of unique Japanese products that probably aren't available at Walmart, Target, or the other vanilla stores across the land.
Club Nintendo Gear
Please note that preorders are CLOSED for both the Super Famicom Wii controller and the Super Mario Galaxy OST. Sadly, there's a limit to what we can procure from Club Nintendo and we met our allocation last week. If additional supplies become available to NCS, we will update our customers accordingly but please do not add either item to your shopping cart and check out of the store. We will not be able to fill new orders at this time.
Nintendo Wii USA
Distributors in New York have raised the price of the Wii progressively higher last week and our price is currently US$425 per console. Sorry.
