Dragon Ball Tenkaichi Daibouken - Japanese Import Preorder

©NCSX» A pint-sized rendition of Son Goku stars as the protagonist in Bandai's Dragon Ball Tenkaichi Daibouken which plies the side scrolling, cel-shaded, platform action game. Those types of games are kinda rare these days but we tend to gravitate towards them whenever they make their way to market. Although the upcoming Dragon Ball game scrolls from left to right, it also brims with 3D event scenes, special effects, and vibrant theatrics that may or may not add to the enjoyment of the platform gaming.
Preorders for the Japanese Wii import DBTD are welcome to ship on July 23, 2009 at JPY6800 or US$69.90 from NCS.

Tsukibito (ツキビト) - Japanese Import Preorder

©NCSX» Travel to the strange city of Kagura and meet monsters. Not just any run of the mill monsters however. These beasts are called Tsukibito and only some people can see them. Notably, most adults don't have the ability to see the Tsukibito because most old people just aren't hip to the preternatural. Two young heroes including a boy suffering from amnesia enter Kagura and interact with the Tsukibito, solve life's little mysteries, and engage a number of mini-games. One of the mini-games plays similarly to Dance Dance Revolution where arrow cues must be tapped in order to bring the monsters out and about in the burg of Kagura. The game is broken up into 10 chapters, each of which features a different mystery to overcome. Preorders for the Japanese Wii import Tsukibito are welcome to ship on Aug 6, 2009 at JPY4800 or US$50.90 from NCS.
