Akumajou Dracula: Ubawareta Kokuin Konamistyle - New Import

«©NCSX» The vampire-killing Belmont family is on hiatus but that doesn't mean Dracula and company can relax. A new order is on the prowl and working overtime to keep the vampire hordes from running rampant. The Order of Ecclesia has taken up the duty of corralling Dracula and their agent of destruction is a young woman named Shanoa.

The new Akumajou (aka Castlevania) game introduces the Glyph system where Shanoa uses the mystical sigils to create a sword, a throwing dagger, or more exotic armaments. Every weapon that's made from a glyph uses magic power and Shanoa will have to watch her use of certain weapons lest they consume her available MP at a rapid pace just as the undead are pressing the attack.

The Konamistyle Limited Edition of Akumajou Dracula: Order of Ecclesia includes the following items:

» Akumajou Dracula Order of Ecclesia game card
» Akumajou Dracula Order of Ecclesia Original Soundtrack (2 CD collection which contains a total of 54 tracks of music)
» A genuine leather-bound notebook which is imprinted with the "Order of Ecclesia" symbol and the "Castlevania OoE" logo on the front cover.
» Glossy akumajou Dracula Poster which features Shanoa and Albus

Due to the special arrangements required to import this item into the United States, NCS is pricing the bundle at US$120.90 and preorders will be shipping today. We have a small surplus for new orders.

This item may also be known as: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia or
Akumajou Dracula Ubawareta Kokuin.

Balance Board Power Cable - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» The Wii Balance Board runs on four AA batteries. That's four batteries that'll eventually end up in a landfill. Figure an average Wii Fit user changes batteries three times a year. That's twelve batteries headed into a landfill. Multiply that by 1.2 million Wii Fit users around the world and 14,400,000 batteries are headed to a landfill near you per annum.

It doesn't have to be that way.

Enter the Board Power Cable from Linx which is an Wii USB adapter that powers the Balance Board and eliminates the need for batteries.
