NDS Rockman EXE Operation Shooting Star New, Restock Soon

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The Rockman EXE franchise concluded with Rockman EXE 6 (Dennoujuu Faltzer and Dennoujuu Grega) in late 2005. However, Capcom isn't quitting the popular series just yet. The company releases another Rockman EXE game in Japan this week but it's not entirely brand new. Rockman EXE Operation Shooting Star is a remake of the original Rockman EXE game from the Gameboy Advance which features elements culled from the Ryuusei no Rockman (known as Megaman Starforce stateside) series. The battle system in the game hearkens back to the original EXE where Rockman faces adversaries head-on and throws out attacks that travel the length of the grid. Battle chips may be equipped prior to battle to enhance Rockman's attacks and battlefield performance.

PSP Lunar Harmony of Silver Star - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The Mega-CD version of Lunar Silver Star debuted over 17 years ago in 1992 and the game eventually made it to the Sega Saturn in two versions. The first conversion was in 1996 and a Video-CD Card compatible version with nicer cinemas was released a year later. Lunar SS also made its way to the Playstation in 1988 and a 20 year hiatus followed. This year, Gung Ho grabs hold of the Lunar SS property and remakes it for the Playstation Portable.

Remakes are all the rage nowadays because the IP is already out there and audience awareness is built-into the marketplace. The PSP remake includes a new scenario, updated graphics, and re-mastered cinemas and music/sound effects.

In the game, players take control of a lad named Alex who idolizes a legendary hero named Dragonmaster Dyne who saved the world from disaster. Alex dreams of becoming a hero one day and gets his chance with a little quest that takes his little band of adventurers into the Dragon's Cave in search of a gem. They meet a wyrm named Quark who senses the greatness in Alex and gifts him with the Dragon Diamond. From there, Alex and friends find themselves going on a true quest that takes them around the world of Lunar. All preorders will
include a bonus soundtrack courtesy of the publisher in 1:1 ratio. While supplies last, we'll also include the soundtrack with new orders placed today and over the next few days.

Wii Final Fantasy The Crystal Bearers - New Import, In Stock

From the Publisher
A thousand years have passed since the events of the original Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. The destruction of the Yuke Crystal during the Great War had at once brought the victorious Lilty Tribe prosperity, the defeated Yuke Tribe apparent annihilation, and the world a new age of science and reason. In this new era exists a rare breed of powerful beings called "Crystal Bearers", whose seemingly magical abilities have led them to be feared and scorned by the public.
The young mercenary Layle is one such crystal bearer, who has been hired to escort the new passenger airship Alexis, the pinnacle of Lilty technology and a symbol of their current dominance. However, when the Alexis is suddenly besieged by a horde of monsters, Layle comes face to face with an adversary thought to have vanished from the pages of history, on a quest that may threaten the future of the world.
FFCC: TCB provides a fresh take on the FFCC series as it combines the storytelling depth, expansive world and graphical quality of FINAL FANTASY with motion-driven, real-time action gameplay. In this world, realistic gameplay and fantastical art direction are brought together for a truly unique experience for Wii users around the globe.

OST Bayonetta Original Soundtrack - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» All the audio goodness of Bayonetta is collected in the official Bayonetta Original Soundtrack which spans five discs of BGM, vocals, and songs sung in somewhat broken English. If shuttled inside a CD caddy and played non-stop, the songs would endure for a little over 5 hours.
On the first disc, listeners can enjoy tracks such as "
Fly Me To The Moon (Infinity Climax Mix)" which may invoke images of Rei Ayanami and "Demonic Beast Summon" which sounds like old school night club music. By "old school," we mean way back in the day when words like "gents" and "dames" were still bandied about. On the third disc, we thought "ST08 Paradiso - Graveyard of the Memories of Time" would have been a usable track in any Castlevania game with its melancholy chants and organ music.
