Devil May Cry 4 Premium BD Pack - Preorder

When Capcom's latest Devil May Cry game ships later this month, it's probably going to be a big deal in Japan. It won't be lines-snaking-around-the-block-in-front-of-Softmap big but only Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy inspire that kind of love and devotion. Still, DMC4's going to get PS3 gamers jazzed and the game should help sell a bunch of consoles.

Sony hopes to goad PS3 hardware sales by collaborating with Capcom to release a Devil May Cry 4 + Ceramic White Playstation 3 [40GB] console. To reward buyers of the bundle, Capcom throws in a premium DMC4 Blue-Ray movie which spans 60 minutes. Pricing is set at JPY47,800 or US$495 from NCS. Preorders are welcome to ship on January 31, 2008.

Valkyrie Profile Sculpture Arts - Preorder, Ships in May 2008

Square Enix's Valkyrie sculpture was originally scheduled to ship in November of last year. Then it got delayed to a future date. Japanese vendors re-opened preorders for the item last night with a new ship date of mid-late May 2008.

Classic Norse mythology (or a bastardization thereof) re-entered popular culture in 1999 with the Japanese release of Valkyrie Profile on the Playstation. The game sold well and we figured that was that. Countless games come and go and die, never to be seen again. Fast forward nearly a decade later and Valkyrie Profile is still steeped in today's gaming culture with sequels, merchandise, and toys. Kotobukiya adds another toy to the Valkyrie Profile ranks which ships in a few months. When built and fully assembled, the Lenneth sculpture measures 43cm or 16.92" in height and nearly half that in width. Pricing is set at JPY55000 or US$475 from NCS.

Sonic Heroes - Stock Clearance

The tri-force of Sonic, Knuckles and Tails zip, zoom and fly like superstars in Sega's latest take on the Sonic franchise. Instead of controlling a single character or a single character with tag-along, players maneuver the three heroes all at once with the ability to shift between them during the course of play. Teams may be set in formations with one hero as lead while the other two walk in flanking motion. Like a gang.

Of course, if Sonic team isn't to your taste, there's three other teams to choose from - Chaotix, Dark Team, and Rose Team which consist of trios of champions from the array of Sonic games. Each group goes through a plot tailored to their specific talents and one team more suited to a particular skill set will encounter levels that are different from other teams.
