PS3 Pro Yakyuu Spirits 2010 - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Within a few years, baseball simulations will probably reach the point where they'll look like live broadcast television games. That's where players (unedited) spit on the ground, grab their crotches, and scratch their asses while waiting for the pitch or for that fly ball to start plummeting. Until that day comes however, Konami continues to refine and hone their baseball craft with the Pro Yakyuu Spirits series of games which feature lifelike animations, comprehensive data for teams and players, and a variety of game modes for fans to explore.

Pro Yakyuy Spirits 2010 features updated 2010 season data and introduces the "Coach Advisory System" which gives players a comprehensive view of the onscreen action and stats/data. Konami also adds a new "Grand Prix" mode where players collect cards to create a team of superstars. Standard game modes that carry over from previous version of PYS include "Pennant Race," "Training," and "Home Run Competition." The Playstation 3 version of the game will also allow players to download updated data and stats as the 2010 season commences.

Preorders are welcome to ship on April 1, 2010 at JPY7800 or US$82.90 from NCS. Reservations are also available for a PSP version of the game along with a PS2 rendition. Please note the PSP and PS2 versions won't support the online download functionality found in the PS3 edition.

PSP Monochrome [Regular or Limited Edition] - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» When Taiki Kirioka was just a young'un, his parents were involved in an accident which left him an orphan and an amnesiac. Taiki's best friend's parents adopted him and as he comes of age, an angel named Yui is sent from heaven to help Taiki in his transition to adulthood. Borrowing the "angels in training" theme found in Kid's Tentama games, players guide Taiki through a digital novel which features static-screen artwork and voice acting to bolster the story. By reading the storyline and making choices at junctures in the game, Taiki finds love with one of his classmates at school.

In addition to the regular edition of PSP Monochrome, NCS is also accepting reservations for a limited edition which is bundled with a BGM soundtrack and an illustrations booklet which features the girls from the game. Preorders are welcome to ship on April 8, 2010.
