NDS Hakuouki DS Limited Edition - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis

«©NCSX» Originally released for the PS2 in the autumn of 2008 and then ported over to the PSP last summer, Idea Factory rehashes Hakuouki once again for the Nintendo DS. The game is based on the Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan animated serial which features a cast of chiseled lads who all sport healthy heads of feathery hair. The boys are all noticeably feminine in terms of facial features, sleek, lanky, and some are even brooding.
The protagonist in the game is a physician's daughter in Edo-era Japan. One day, the doctor goes to Kyoto on an assignment for the Shogunate but seemingly disappears. The heroine resolves to go into Kyoto herself to search for her father and in the interim, meet a bunch of boys who'll help her and potentially fall in love with her. The Nintendo DS conversion of the game features voice acting and a 500-question quiz game which is all about the Hakuouki game. The limited edition includes the following bonus items which are packaged with the game card in a cardboard container:

» Voice drama and producer interview CD which spans 27 minutes
Character illustrations collection
NCS will also include a third bonus item with every order.

PSP Saki Portable Roof-Top Box - New Import, Restock Soon

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the Saki-Saki manga/animation series, a girl named Saki Miyanaga has perfected the art of breaking even (+/- zero score) on every mahjong game that she plays. Her unusual proclivity and luck leads her to the school mahjong club followed by the national mahjong tournament.
Join three heroines named Saki, Nodoka, and Yuki in bouts of PSP mahjong action. The girls are joined by fellow mahjong players including the glasses-wearing Mako, a waif with a deep-voice who answers to Hisa, a blonde named Touka, a younger blonde called Koromo, a girl with different-colored eyes named Mihoko, and many more.
Although the mahjong interplay is conventional and adheres to standard Japanese rules, the winning shots aren't the norm. Whenever a girl wins an MJ match, a photo of the winner or a nearly nude girl is shown on the screen as a sort of reward.
The limited edition "Roof Top Box" version of Saki Portable includes the following bonuses:

» Three miniature figures (Saki, Nodoka, and Yuki)
» Illustrations booklet produced by Studio GONZO

PSP Sora no Otoshimono: DokiDoki Summer Vacation [DX Pack]

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Tomoki Sakurai is a lad who lives in the quaint little town of Sorami. Life is quiet so Tomoki gets his kicks by being a peeping tom who has a number of prime viewing areas that he has mapped around town. Tomoki would be content to live this way forever but one night, a strange event changes his life forever. While watching the sky with two friends, an object falls from the heavens which turns out to be a female being known as an Angeloid. Her name is Ikaros and she sports a shock of pink hair, angel wings, and a large bosom. Ikaros bonds with Tomoki and takes him on a radical change of life experiences.

The PSP game plies the interactive adventure trade which features a new story based on the animated source material. The dialogue is accompanied by speech for added ambience. At the outset of the adventure, the somewhat mechanical song of the cicada signals the approach of summer. Once the warm weather arrives, the citizenry of Sorami visit hot springs, the beach, parks, and other locations that are amenable to lazy day lounging and sloth. It is within this backdrop that the cast of the PSP game interact, utilize card magic, and effect changes in the Angeloids that populate the adventure. The DX Pack edition includes the following items:

» Shower curtain which measures 1200 x 1800mm in area
Business card carrying case which features a laser-etched design on top
A sheet of colorful decals which depict the cast of characters in the anime
