Animal Crossing Watashi no Uchi Collection - New Import

«©NCSX» Yujin releases a new set of Animal Crossing "House" gashapon toys which feature the characters of AXing and their houses. Checking our own sets of previous AXing House toys from yesteryear, we notice that the pieces of furniture such as the pineapple bed, the watermelon table, and the robot entertainment system are rehashed from the earlier Animal Crossing toys but the three houses feature a new and snazzy design.

Each figure measures 3cm (1.18") tall and the dimensions of each house are
5 x 6 x 5cm (1.96 x 2.36 x 1.96"). Each figure can be placed inside his/her respective home along with the pieces of furniture that are included with the particular toy. There's three toys with characters, furniture, and houses and another two toys which only contain two Animal Crossing characters and four little bits of furniture and tidbits. New orders are welcome to ship at US$28.90 per complete set of five figures from NCS.

Ys I & II Chronicles - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» Relive the adventures of Adol Christian in Ys I & II Chronicles which is a PSP remake of a PC remake (June 2001) of the original games that were released in the late 80s. That was 20 years ago when console software was cartridge-based and system memory was miniscule and dear.

With the power of the PSP at their disposal and the sizable storage space of the Sony UMD, Falcom gives their classic Ys games a new generation upgrade and graphical facelift. The audio soundtrack has also been updated with background music (BGM) rearrangements for added value.

Falcom also touts three game modes for Ys I and Ys II, selectable graphics modes, and four difficulty levels (Easy, Normal, Hard, and Nightmare). Preorders are welcome to ship on July 16, 2009 at JPY4800 or US$52.90 from NCS. Japanese Product Name: イースI&IIクロニクルズ

Boku no Natsuyasumi 4 - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» Summer vacations are generally relaxing, somewhat interesting, and if you're lucky, filled with tons of stuff to do. The preceding sentence is descriptive of the summer vacations in the Boku no Natsuyasumi (My Summer Vacation) series of games. In case you've never enjoyed a video game vacation, here's your chance to take one on your Playstation Portable.

The destination in the latest Boku no Natsuyasumi is an island in Japan which features a modern city but is also brimming with nature so that there's lots of things for a young boy to occupy himself with. The year in the game is 1985 when life was a little simpler than it is now. Activities including fishing, swimming, beetle battling, toy collecting, dancing, sumo wrestling with toys, insect catching with a net, and much more. There's also a drumming mini-game that's somewhat evocative of Namco's Taiko no Tatsujin. Sort of. Coin-op video games of the day may also be enjoyed including a faithful rendition of QIX from Taito. Preorders are welcome to ship on July 2, 2009 at JPY4800 or US$52.90 from NCS. Japanese Product Name: ぼくのなつやすみ4 瀬戸内少年探偵団、ボクと秘密の地図

DX Anaconda Plush Doll - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» There wasn't just one Anaconda movie... Sony gave the green light to four of them. Something about a massive cold-blooded reptile killing innocent (and some not so innocent) humans apparently has appeal for cinema goers and DVD renters. Taito's upcoming DX Anaconda Plush has no relationship to the Anaconda movies but one similarity is that it is massive. Measuring a mighty 130cm or 51.18" in length, the Anaconda plush features a leopard-spotted design and drapes just like a real snake around a wearer's neck. Preorders are welcome to ship in Sept 2009 at US$38.90 each. Due to the size of the plush, NCS recommends only shipping by UPS Ground within the United States to avoid dimensional weight charges.
