PSP Criminal Girls - Import Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Nippon Ichi's expanding their horizons but the company's keeping their sights on the underworld. Similar to Disgaea and Phantom Kingdom, the upcoming Criminal Girls takes place in the harsh environs of hell. Players take on the role of a supervisor and team-leader of sorts who's put in charge of seven "criminal" girls. Although the girls appear somewhat angelic, they're bad girls who belong in hell but there is hope for them. As steward of the girls, the protagonist leads them on a mission where they'll all attempt to scale a seven story tower to reach the top and attain eventual salvation. Between the first and seventh floor however, there'll be drama, spanking, compromising positions, and more RPG action than you can shake a stick at. Preorders are welcome to ship on November 18, 2010.

DS Kingdom Hearts Re:coded Power of Friendship Guide Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Originally released for mobile-phones in the summer of 2009, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is undergoing the remake treatment and will be playable on the Nintendo DS later this year. In the game, players take control of Sora who explores a Heartless-challenged Traverse Town which is in need of a fix. Since Sora and his keyblade are so versatile, he's been assigned the task of making things right in the embattled First District of Traverse Town and other worlds. King Mickey, Donald Duck, Goofy, Alice, and other Disneyland friends return in the role of supporting cast mates.

   Since some gamers might need assistance during their travels through Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, a "Power of Friendship" guidebook is being published to coincide with the launch of the game. The book covers the seven worlds in the adventure from the first to the last and includes information on the game systems and how they work. Details on the bosses and attendant battles show gamers how to beat the bosses. A database of items, weapons, Keyblades, and more is also included so players can check out their stats and functions. A series of maps is also included which show the geography of re:coded. As an added bonus for buyers, an exclusive Kingdom Hearts Re:coded poster is attached to the book. Preorders are welcome to ship on October 7, 2010 at JPY1200 or US$20.90 from NCS.  

NEWS General Updates

Partial Pokemon Black/White Tomorrow
«©NCSX» Only one of our Japanese suppliers was able to ship an early batch of Pokemon Black and Pokemon White last night and we expect the shipment to arrive tomorrow. Please note however that all of the other suppliers may not receive their allocations of Pokemon Black/White until Friday since the official release date is Saturday. If this is the case, please be aware that we won't receive the remainder of our shipments until Monday of next week. 
Yen-tervention, finally
We wired a payment to Japan yesterday at 5PM. If acct'g had waited 16 hours, we would have saved about $3800 based on today's 3% jump in the dollar against the yen solely on Japan's foreign exchange intervention. That $3800 could've been used for pizza, beach chairs, 100% polyester shirts, and other junk goods instead of sacrificing the funds to the forex Gods.
