X360 Ninety-Nine Nights 2 - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the original Nine-Nine Nights, a single warrior went to town on entire battalions of enemy soldiers and mowed them down with conspicuous ease. Based on the previews of Ninety-Nine Nights 2, the game is more of the same where a super-warrior kills not only one or two squads of troops but thousands upon thousands of them. Usually within the span of a few minutes.
In the world of N3, the lands of the elves, goblins, humans, and ogres have been beset by a dark army led by the "King of Night." The King and his hordes ravage the world for ninety-two days but a hero emerges to meet the dark armies and their King. Such a hero must wield two swords, wear a constant scowl on his face, and have slashing skills that would even put the scare in Chuck Norris.
Konami touts 100 types of skills that may be used in N3II which allow for a variety of killing moves and tactics. One wouldn't want to kill enemy soldiers just by way of rote hacking and slashing - a hero needs a bunch of different ways to eviscerate the opposition.
Preorders are welcome to ship on July 22, 2010 at JPY6800 or US$69.90 from NCS. The original N3 included a bonus flick-action keychain as a preorder incentive but sadly no such incentive is listed for N3II.

PSP Idol Janshi Suchie Pai IV Portable - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Jaleco originally released Suchie Pai IV on the Playstation in 2007 and they're giving the game another chance on the PSP later this year. The redhead named Suchie Pai S and her trademark Hissatsu Suchie Stick serves as the hostess for the game where she'll twirl, sparkle, and look fetching as the mahjong action plays out. She's on your side and will do her best to make sure the game goes your way - even going so far as destroying an opponent's winning tile to give the player another chance. De-facto artist of the Suchie Pai series Kenichi Sonoda also returns with a bevy of new illustrations and outfits for the girls to wear.
The setting of Suchie-Pai 4 is Akihabara in Tokyo and the mahjong action takes place in seven eateries located around town. There's the posh Cafe Gentry, the casual coffee shop dubbed You & Me, and the utilitarian Hell & Heaven where the MJ-playing girls work and perfect their craft.
The PSP conversion of Suchie Pai IV includes a brand new character designed by Kenichi Sonoda, updated graphics and animations, and a new "Free Mode." Preorders for the regular edition of Suchis Pai IV are welcome to ship on August 12, 2010. Reservations are also welcome for a limited edition which includes a special Drama CD and a slipcase.

NDS Kamen Rider Battle Ganbaride Card Battle Taisen - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbaride coin-op that was released in 2008, Bandai coupled the Riders with data cards for a somewhat enjoyable arcade experience. The special cabinet that housed the Kamen Rider game featured a big-center-button along with three additional buttons per player and a card scanner. By using only buttons and cards, players made a pair of Riders battle another pair of Riders in a card-inserting, button-pressing, virtual-slot-spinning, stutter-step of a card fighting game. Fans of Kamen Rider will enjoy the round-by-round simulated attacks but non-fans will probably scratch their heads and mumble something that sounds like "WTF." The NDS game features 700 cards and the first printing of the NDS conversion will include a pack of 11 Rider Kick Cards which is packaged inside the game case. Preorders are welcome to ship on July 29, 2010 at JPY4800 or US$53.90 from NCS.

TOYS Stitch HQ 3-Way Furisu Blanket - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The routine of sleep in the civilized world generally involves a bed, a blanket, and a pillow. Variations of this arrangement exist such as swapping a bed for a sofa when one's significant other decides to go to bed angry... and alone. Sega's upcoming Stitch HQ 3-Way Furisu Blanket provides two of the three ingredients needed for sleep as follows:

» A blue blanket with a Stitch logo which measures 100cm square
» A Stitch pillow with hanging ears which may be worn like a hat

The blanket is woven from polyester and it looks like it'll cover a small child or a really short adult. Preorders are welcome to ship in late September 2010 at US$28.90 from NCS.

ETC FFVII AC Sephiroth eau de toilette - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Sephiroth sort of looks like a lady with his long silver hair, slender frame, and chiseled features. Even though his appearance is feminine, we'd never pin him as someone who'd dab some eau de toilette behind the ears. He's too uppity and savage for that. Nevertheless, Square Enix has decided that Sephiroth needs a scent and two bottles worth of Sephiroth ea de toilette are on their way for an August 2010 release.

Each shiny black bottle contains 50ml of scented liquid and is made of nickel-plated glass. A zinc alloy strap is tethered to each bottle. The eau de toilette contains the essences of apple, plum, bergamot citrus, peach, and pineapple followed by freesia, lily of the valley, rose, jasmine, orchid, iris, and cyclamen. The base scent is cedarwood, sandalwood, musk for a light fruity fragrance with the bouquet of a musky forest after a damp evening. Or something like that. Preorders are welcome to ship on August.
