Juggler DS - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» The Japanese love a good game of pachi-slot and parlors that cater to their whims still do good business. One of the more popular pachi-slot games in recent history has been the Juggler series from Kita Denshi. To bring the Juggler machines home, Commseed makes them virtual and near exact copies of the real world yen-gobbling bandits.

The four pachi-slot machines featured in Juggler DS are:

Junkie Juggler
| Lovely Juggler A | I'm Juggler 7 | I'm Juggler EX

For new hands to the pachi-slot trade who need a definition, a pachi-slot machine is like a slot machine. The kind you see in casinos. They are essentially designed to part people from their money with bright lights and the lure of big money and prizes.

Taisen!! Katochan no Kololon! - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» A flatulent geezer named Kato-chan serves as the emcee and entire cast in the latest rendition of the Kollon aka Ultimate Block Party puzzle game from Cyberfront. Kato-chan is a versatile actor who appears in the game in various personas including a police officer, a geisha, crab, drumstick, mountain, and many more. The gist of the Kollon game is this: players control a 2x2 grid overlay which is used to rotate 2x2 group of colored crooked-smiley-face blocks. The aim is to create matches of at least four contiguous blocks around the cluttered playfield. When a match is made, the blocks will start spinning and that's your cue to try and rotate more like-colored blocks to touch the morass or ignite other color combinations elsewhere. With so many blocks on the board at any time, chain combos are ripe for the making...

Yagami Hayate Knight Armor figma - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» When NCS first encountered Yagami Hayate in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's animation from 2005, we thought she borrowed some traits from Sakura Kinomoto - Mistress of the Clow. Sure, Sakura's a smaller girl but they both wear big hats, carry strange scepters, and use magic. They're both popular with fans as well. Amid much anticipation in Japan, preorders were started for the Yagami Hayate Knight Armor figma figure a couple of days ago with vendors warning that there might be shortages. That's usually just a ploy to get us to submit reservations early and order more than we really need...

The Yagami Hayate figma measures 13.5cm or 5.31" in height and features the magic user in her cleric-like outfit from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha S. She carries the Schwerkruez staff as well as the Book of Darkness. Preorders are welcome to ship is mid-late January 2009 at JPY2800 or US$32.90 from NCS.

Under Defeat Limited Edition for JPN DC - Clearance

NCS Product Synopsis - Original Update: March 22, 2006
«©NCSX» In its heyday, Dreamcast software sales trumped PS2 numbers handily. Whereas the majority of PS2 software struggled to sell 100 units each week, DC games regularly hit the 1000 unit mark. Not just a few times but time after time and week after week. NCS had to swat away our collective tears when Sega announced the DC hardware swansong in 2001. Back then, we figured it was the end of perfect Naomi home conversions. We were wrong. Ikaruga, Border Down, Trizeal, Chaos Field (hm), and Rajirugi all made their way to market in the years since. As 2006 rolls around, Naomi conversions are still being churned out and the latest DC release is Under Defeat from G.Rev. We paid a little over $1500 for our Naomi GD-Rom a few months ago to play the helicopter shoot 'em up but Dreamcast gamers get to completely own it for the reasonable price of US$78. The limited edition includes a 11-track music CD (Extended Tracks) which is packaged with the game inside a DVD case.

Sale Offering
: NCS' remaining inventory of Under Defeat Limited Edition for the Japanese Dreamcast is new, factory sealed, and in excellent condition. Pricing is set at US$89.90 per copy which includes "free" shipping by USPS Media Mail within the U.S
