Wii Xenoblade - New Import, Partial Shipment Arrival

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Two monolithic gods once went to war and a great battle ensued which shook the planet and roiled the heavens. Swords were swung by both sides and massive damage was done whereby both gods died from their wounds. That was a while ago but the dead hulks of both gods still stand on the battlefield facing each other. The eerie goliaths now serve as the "continents" for two races - humans live on one god which was once a living being while sentient machines reside on the other god which was a mechanical monstrosity. As the story in Xenoblade begins, the humans and machines are at odds and a new conflict is in progress.

Players take on the role of a sandy-haired lad named Shulk who hopes to use a sword known as Monado to help the humans defeat the machines. Shulk's traveling companion is named Fiorung who's the sister of a hero named Dunban who once wielded the Monado sword. A battlefield injury has sidelined Dunban but he helps Shulk with the process of unlocking the secrets of the Monado weapon.
Partial preorders for the Wii import Xenoblade are shipping today and the remainder will ship tomorrow. Early reservations will include a bonus soundtrack CD that's being given away by the publisher Nintendo in 50% ratio.

PSP Tales of Phantasia Narikiri Dungeon X - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Back in the year 2000, Namco was still independent and doing their thing on all the consoles of the day.

The heroes are Mel and her twin brother Dio who have a pet named Couleur with special morphing abilities. The siblings travel through time, go on missions, and make use of the Narikiri costume change system which determine the abilities of the two main heroes in the game.
Fast forward to the present day and Namco Bandai is rehashing TOPND for the PSP and they're also adding a remake of the original Tales of Phantasia game to the UMD. Early preorders will include a bonus Dramatic DVD that's being given away in 50% ratio.

TOYS Tamaki Kousaka Undergarment Version Black - Preorder

NCS Original Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the To Heart 2 game, Tamaki Kousaka is a fiery-maned alpha female who commands respect. Toy sculptors have used Tamaki's image to create statuesque figures which have found a receptive audience. It's about that time again for another rendition of Tamaki, this time from Kaitendo, which measures 15cm or 5.90" tall and is made of a polymer called "candy resin." Apparently, the new resin holds flesh colors well so that Tamaki's "skin" appears realistic. The figure is also dressed in nylon hosiery and wears a brassiere and lacey underwear made of PVC that's removable.

This particular figure has been re-released a couple of times again to a sold-out reception. Kaitendoh's re-releasing it once again later this year and new preorders are welcome to ship in late August 2010 at JPY13800 or US$168.90 from NCS. Please note dimensional weight applies to this toy.
