General Updates

Shipments Left in Kentucky
Despite being pre-cleared through U.S. Customs yesterday afternoon, UPS left the bulk of our Japan import packages in their Kentucky hub last night. Strangely, they remembered to dispatch cartons which contained Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 Joysticks... which we really didn't need today. Due to the delay, all preorders for the incoming imports will ship on Friday unless the shipments make it in later this afternoon. We'll update again if that happens. [Pending Update Space:__________________________]
Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 - Restock
All backorders and new orders for the Hori RAP3 will ship today. Pricing remains at US$115.
Shooting Game Historica 2 SP
Yujin released the SP edition of the Shooting Game Historica 2 last night and our shipments have been sent from Japan. We're not sure if they'll make it in tomorrow but we'll update accordingly if they do. We are completely SOLD OUT of the boxes and it doesn't appear that we'll be able to restock them. Yujin is also sold out at this time and we're guessing they only made enough to fill preorders.
Kingdom Hearts Formation Arts Vol. 3
Preorders for the latest Kingdom Hearts Formation Arts toy figures will ship later today or tomorrow. We're not certain because we see the shipments are in JFK airport this morning but there isn't a dispatch scan yet. Shipping confirmations will be sent if we do receive them today.

BLU-RAY You Don't Mess w/t Zohan - New, Shipping Thursday

From the Publisher

Watch Adam Sandler Lather, Rinse and Save the World in Hysterical Comedy Starring Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Nick Swardson
Culver City, Calif. (August 14, 2008) – Sony Pictures Home Entertainment unleashes You Don’t Mess with the Zohan on DVD and Blu-ray™ Disc October 7, 2008. Written by the outrageously funny Adam Sandler (Click, 50 First Dates), Robert Smigel (TV’s “Saturday Night Live,”) and Judd Apatow (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Knocked Up), this side-splitting action-comedy follows an Israeli counter-terrorist agent with a burning passion for shagging hair…and women. Directed by Dennis Dugan (I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, The Benchwarmers), the film stars Sandler as Zohan Dvir, an ex-Mossad super spy who fakes his death during a showdown with his diabolical arch nemesis in order to escape to New York and pursue his dreams of making the world “silky smooth.” Rocking a throwback 1980s Paul Mitchell signature coif, Zohan loves to “make the bam-boom” with his clientele of the senior citizen variety and also exhibits a serious penchant for all things slathered in hummus.

BLU-RAY The Happening - New Release, Shipping Thursday

From the Publisher

Academy Award Nominee Mark Wahlberg, Emmy Award Winner John Leguizamo and Zooey Deschanel Star In The Apocalyptic Tale Of Terror

CENTURY CITY, Calif. – We sensed it, we’ve seen the signs. Now… It’s happening. Writer and director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs) returns to his roots with the paranoid thriller The Happening, arriving on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with Digital Copy October 7 from Fox Home Entertainment. A suspenseful apocalyptic film, The Happening follows a group of people on the run from an inexplicable and unstoppable event that threatens not only humankind… but the most basic human instinct of them all - survival! Shyamalan’s first R-rated film begins with no clear warning, as a series of strange, chilling deaths that defy reason in their shocking destructiveness erupt in major American cities. As the incidents begin to become more and more frequent, their fight for survival will become more and more desperate.

Flower, Sun, and Rain: Murder and Mystery - Preorder

Earlier this year, NCS took delivery of the Japanese Nintendo DS conversion of Flower, Sun, and Rain - a game that was originally released on the Playstation 2 in 2001. The protagonist of the adventure is a detective named Sumio Mondo who gets caught up in a bizarre time loop on an island resort.

Rising Star Games will be releasing the English language version of Flower, Sun, and Rain in Europe this year but no North American release is expected. Due to the lack of availability stateside, NCS is now accepting preorders for the European release of the game which is expected to arrive on or around November 7, 2008. Pricing is set at US$49.90 which is the same price that we originally listed for the European version of Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosey Rupeeland.

One Piece Episode of Arabasta T-Shirt - Preorder

In the One Piece Episode of Arabasta movie, the Straw Hat Pirates rush to the aid of Princess Vivi Nefertari who's kingdom is under siege by a criminal organization called Baroque Works. When the Straw Hats first meet Vivi, she is under the guise of an agent working for Baroque Works which she has infiltrated. After the truth comes out, Luffy and crew take her under their umbrella and help Vivi's cause.

Cospa has started preorders for a t-shirt which is based on the Arabasta movie and features the Straw Hats on the bottom of the garment. Each pirate raises his left arm and balls his fist. In the case of Chopper, the squat reindeer raises a hoof. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late October 2008 at JPY3000 or US$32.90. Please select a shirt size from XS-S-M-L when placing your order.
