Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» The Asian version of Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 is in stock and re-confirmed preorders are shipping today. New orders are welcome.

In Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan! which was released last year, Sega sent gamers back to feudal times in Japan. An incarnation of the series' hero Kiryuu Kazuma worked as a hired gun who took assignments from any client willing to pay.

The adventures of the hard charging
Kiryu Kazuma resume once again in modern times in Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 for the PS3. Kiryu is once again steeped in the life of a Yakuza who operates in the seedy district of Kamurocho. Kiryu has certain goals and objectives to accomplish over the course of the adventure but between the beginning and the conclusion, there's a lot of distractions in the game... just like real life. Kiryu can engage in karaoke sessions, play golf, go fishing, play pool, and even enjoy some quality time with a companion at a Love Hotel.

Ninja Blade (Asian-English) - New Import, In Stock

From the Publisher
Ninja Blade™ is an action adventure game set within modern day Tokyo. Parasites known as alpha-worms have mysteriously appeared, unleashing a wave of human destruction as they rapidly spread east, reaching the shores of Tokyo. With the future of humankind hanging in the balance, an exclusive and elite team possessing highly specialized skills is formed to eliminate the enemy onslaught, and ultimately save mankind from complete obliteration.

Game Features

And perform the todomé attack to destroy an enemy's core (heart), by dealing a fatal wound. Balanced and calculated use of both these abilities will be critical to progressing through the game.
* Variety of weapons, tools, and Ninjutsu.

Star Ocean The Last Hope (ASN) - New Import, In Stock

From the Publisher
A.D. 2064
... Planet Earth was on the brink of destruction as clashes between the World Republic Federation and the various nations that opposed it sparked the outbreak of World War III. Weapons of mass destruction, deployed with complete impunity razed the land in the blink of an eye. The dire situation forced the two opposing factions to negotiate a cease-fire and an agreement was quickly reached, but although the war may have ended, its effects remained. With the deteriorating environment, Earth's population was drastically reduced and those who survived lived a confined existence trapped in underground cities. Eventually countries joined together to form the Greater United Nations and turned their eyes skyward, to space. With the establishment of the USTA, the Universal Science and Technology Administration, man began to seek new worlds beyond the stars.

A.D. 2087
... The first year of the space date (SD) calendar. Thanks to the success of Professor Trillas Bachstein's warp drive experiments, mankind's dream of a spacebourne existence has inched closer to reality and the USTA secretly began to implement its SRF project, the Space Reconnaissance Force. Now it is SD 0010, and the first official SRF mission and your adventure has begun.

Persona - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» When Atlus released the original Persona in 1996, the portable handheld of choice was the Gameboy. The very first Gameboy. It didn't have color nor a backlight but that didn't stop Nintendo's wunderkind from dominating the portable gaming landscape. It wasn't until 1998 that the Gameboy Color arrived on the scene.

Fast forward 13 years and technology has gotten to the point where games like Persona can now be played on portables such as the Playstation Portable. In living color and backlit. Atlus upgrades the game with new cinemas, visual updates, brand new dungeon levels, and user- friendly options such as a quick save feature.

Preorders are welcome to ship on April 29, 2009 at JPY4800 or US$53.90. The first production of the game will ship with a bonus Persona Soundtrack CD in 30% ratio from the publisher.

Demon's Souls - Asian Version Shortage

«©NCSX» A game we didn't expect to arrive early (Ryu Ga Gotoku 3) did and a game we did expect to arrive early (Demon's Souls) didn't. The Asian version of Demon's Souls was held back for release until Tuesday but please note that vendors in Hong Kong warned us earlier this morning that the game will be very limited and there will be a major shortage this week.

It appears that Sony cut shipments to vendors in Hong Kong by as much as 80%. The Japanese version which was released a couple of weeks ago was also very limited. This seems to indicate a lack of confidence on the potential sales of the game in the Pacific region. In other news, there's a bountiful supply of Hakuna Matata (Asian version of Afrika) across Hong Kong.

We'll post another update tomorrow once we verify what's been shipped to us. Furthermore, the shortage situation should be temporary.
