NDS One Piece Gigant Battle - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Pirates enjoy scuffling, plundering, and drinking. Bandai's new One Piece Gigant Battle focuses on the propensity of pirates to scuffle although a OP drinking game would probably be big fun. In Gigant Battle, up to four players link up in 2-vs-2 pairings and fight each other on stages that were taken from the One Piece manga/anime franchise - specifically, locales from the Sabaody Archipelago story arc, the Impel Down episode, and the Marineford drama. The action takes place on the top NDS screen while the touchscreen serves as a control console where supporters may be called upon to join the battle with a tap of the touchpen.

   Every copy of the game includes a bonus set of password cards which may be used to unlock in-game content.

iPhone Darius Burst AC iPhone 3G/3GS Case - Japanese Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» We still sell a couple of copies of Darius Burst on the PSP every week because shooters rule. We're not sure if the iPhone Darius Burst Another Chronicle cases rule though. The artwork is sharp but the message is unclear. What is someone from the lay supposed to glean from a case that depicts a bigass metallic fish as shown in designs A and B? Design C shows off Darius Burst ships which are more socially acceptable and we'll probably keep that one for one of our iPhone 3GS mobiles.

   Preorders are welcome to ship in late November 2010 at US$25.90 each. Please note that the Darius Burst iPhone cases are a limited distribution item from Taito that will only be released in Japan.
