Saru Saru DS - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» According to conventional wisdom, man is the result of ape evolution through the ages. The conventional wisdom is probably wrong but for the sake of Saru Saru DS, it doesn't really matter.

In D3P's follow-up to The Genshijin, players take control of a simian tribe which has to survive and reproduce to assure that they'll walk the Earth for centuries to come. In order to endure, the tribe needs a constant source of sustenance and the game features activities such as gathering, hunting, and even trawling the waters for shellfish. Rudimentary tools and weapons may be created to improve the tribe's ability to procure their daily nutrition. The end goal for the tribe is to eventually evolve from monkeys to humans. Preorders are welcome to ship on February 19, 2009.

Simple DS Vol. 46: The Hikyou Tankentai: Choutoko Special - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» A trio of busters paranormal investigators who've obviously watched too many episodes of The X-Files are on the hunt. They're not looking for fish, fowl, or flora however. These intrepid adventurers are in search of Bigfoot, the Lochness Monster, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, and other paranormal creatures that have stoked human curiosity for decades. They won't find such monsters in suburbia or the urban jungle however. In order to locate Bigfoot, they must travel to faraway spots where the conditions are extreme and unfriendly to human mortality.

D3 Publisher's The Hikyou Tankentai features an exploratory adventure that's viewed from overhead as the three investigators search various environs for clues and evidence of the creatures they're after. Since the wilderness is fraught with danger, the heroes face spiders, grizzly bears, and other threats which must be dealt with by swishing and tapping the NDS touchpen. Preorders are welcome to ship on Feb 19, 2009.

Super Mario Galaxy Figure Collection Vol. 2 - Preorder

«©NCSX» The story of Mario Galaxy continues later this year when Banpresto releases another collection of toy figures inspired by the game. The first toy in the set is an upside down Mario who kicks his feet in the air in a mid-somersault move and the second toy features Spring Mario where the porcine plumber is wrapped in a thick springy coil. Four additional figures are in the set including a Spring Mushroom and Bowser Junior. Each toy measures approximately 5cm or 1.9" tall and is made of PVC. Preorders are welcome to ship in mid-late May 2009 at US$23.90 for the complete set of six. Banpresto will ship the figures in mini "pillow baggies" instead of plastic capsules which should prove to be friendlier on the environment.

Nendoroid MikkuMiku Kagami - Preorder

From the Publisher (Good Smile Company)
Transformed by magic, it's Kagami in Miku's outfit!

It's an image of Kagami that has been popular ever since the cover illustration from the Lucky Star OVA was released, and now it's coming as a Nendoroid - it's Kagami as she appeared within her dream, cosplaying as Miku Hatsune!

She comes complete with the two leeks that featured on the OVA's cover, as well as various expressions that show exactly how awkward she feels about cosplaying. She even comes with the popular expression that she made as she said, "I want to ******", as she woke from her dream.

The body of the Nendoroid is based on Kagami's body shape, and is thus a completely new mould.
