NDS Love Plus - New Japanese Import, Restock Soon

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Konami got involved with the love interaction genre 15 years ago with Tokimeki Memorial: Forever With You and went on to create sequels, side stories, and animated serials based on the Tokimeki brand. There's obviously a demand for love games and Konami capitalizes on the theme once again with Love Plus. Players take on the role of a high school transfer student who finds love with one of three classmates at his new school. The game starts off after the pair have made a love confession already and the couple are in the process of dating, enjoying each other's company, and communicating. With the NDS in hand, players may meet his "girlfriend" at school or send messages by email. The time in the game world flows steadily onwards regardless of whether you're playing or not where day turns to night and the seasons change based on the date.

Wii Tabemon - New Japanese Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Namco's Pac-Man was a video game phenomenon that inspired sequels, clones, and even a song back in the day when 8-bit was bleeding edge. Nearly 30 years later, Namco's still around albeit as a part of the Bandai empire and Pac-Man still scores high on the awareness meter.

TabeMon is sort of like a spiritual successor to Pac-Man. The main character in the game looks like a mutated version of Pac-Man and it eats. A lot. He's named Pepper and has a partner in crime named Sugar who looks like something from the Pokemon Universe. Instead of being isolated within a maze and chased by a quartet of spooks in Pac-Man, TabeMon features free-roaming gameplay where the hero runs around chomping down mobile as well as immobile objects and creatures on screen. Players may alternate between Pepper and Sugar during the course of game play to mix up the visuals. At the outset of the game, Pepper is a low-level beast that can't devour higher-level alien fruit-creatures known as Tabemon. However, by eating and growing in stature, Pepper gains levels and gets to chomp on his betters. Pepper also has a dash move where he charges into Tabemon to bust them up into smaller versions so he can eat them up. In addition to Tabemon minions, massive bosses also provide adversity in the game.
