TOYS Domokun Aki Mascot Strap Series 2 - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» When Domokun started out his little cottage- industry-career, he was beloved by many stateside fans even though he only appeared on Japanese television. You can thank the magic of the internet and streaming video for his early fame. Back then, Domokun products were gobbled up by crazed passionate buyers who all wanted a little piece of the lovable brown monster. Sorta reminds us of the power of Sackboy. As the years passed and Domokun grew older, NCS noticed that consumer apathy had crept in as the volumes of Domokun products increased.

Domokun's brand had been diluted. Brown got watered down.

Eikoh's been one perpetrator of Domo's brand dilution and they perpetrate some more with a new collection of Domokun Straps. On the upper left portion of the top photo, Domokun portrays an afro-wearing maracas shaker but he changes to what we can only describe as a Buster on the upper-right corner of the photo. The other personas are a hand-fan-wielder and a sword-handler who appears droopy-eyed and unsteady. Preorders for the set of four Domokun Mascot Straps are welcome to ship in March 2010.

PSP 11 Eyes Crossover - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Japanese developer Lass originally released 11eyes CrossOver for the Xbox 360 in March 2009 and they're porting the game over to the Playstation Portable early next year. The hero in the game is a lad named Kakeru Satsuki who was orphaned at a young age along with his sister. However, while at the orphanage, Kakeru's sister committed suicide which left him desolate and lost. Despite the tragedy that befell him, Kakeru nevertheless soldiered onwards with help from his friend Yuka Minase and new friends in high school. Kakeru has been living a relatively normal life until his world goes awry (quite literally) when he discovers an alternate reality. The kind of reality where monsters hunt unsuspecting innocents. Kakeru and Yuna call the strange reality "Red Night" and eventually team up with four other heroes who are also privy to the new reality. The narrative of the adventure comes from the perspective of multiple characters.

The PSP conversion of the game features a new event scene designed exclusively for the PSP, a new opening cinema, and extra wallpaper to use in the XMB menu. In addition to the regular edition of the game, preorders are welcome for a limited edition which includes a USB memory card. Preorders are welcome to ship on January 28, 2010.
