NDS Radiant Historia - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The land of Vancule is slowly dying... of thirst. Once fertile lands are turning into desert and the people have become afflicted by a strange disease. Five nations on the continent of Vancule are all suffering from the same affliction. The powers that be don't have a solution to combat the process of desiccation but a young operative named Stock from the country of Aristel might be the hero that everyone's waiting for.

   At the outset of the game, Stock is sent on a mission to save a fellow operative who's been imprisoned in the country of Granorg. During the rescue mission, Stock is wounded but gains the ability to travel through time and space which allows him the wherewithal to right the wrongs that sent Vancule on a collision course with environmental disaster. 

MAG Shooting Gameside Vol. 01 - New Import, In Stock

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» If NCS was savvy enough to convince investors to pony up for the publication of a print magazine, we'd probably do something like Shooting Gameside. In our magazine, there'd be a feature on Soukyugurentai, a pictorial for Muchi-Muchi Pork!, and a 8-page spread on developer Treasure which looks back at their games and enthralls readers with information on the development of Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga. The centerfold of the magazine would be a three-pager featuring the entire cast of Death Smiles, EspGaluda, Sol Divide, and Mushihimesama. We might even throw Samus in there just for the hell of it. Alas, we're not savvy enough.

   The publishers of Shooting Gameside Vol. 01 are savvy and they're producing a new magazine that's being released in Japan this weekend. The shoot' em ups covered in the magazine include Battle Garegga, Darius Burst Another Chronicle, Do Don Pachi Daifukkatsu, Senko no Ronde DUO, and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. Articles in the magazine include a 10-page feature on developer Eighting/Raizing and an interview with composer Hitoshi Sakimoto who has worked on games such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII. All preorders are shipping today JPY1260 or US$25.90 from NCS. Depending on how sales for the first issue goes, a second volume of Shooting Gameside may be published.

TOYS eCapcom Okamiden Chibiterasu Hug Plush Toy - New

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» What's cute, cuddly, and almost as white as the driven snow? Answer: eCapcom Okamiden Chibiterasu Hug Plush Toy.

   NCS originally planned on only bringing the Okami-den hug plush for ourselves because of the high cost. We have a little Okami shrine that was crying for this toy. The plush by itself costs roughly $57 from e-Capcom within Japan but the shipping charges per plush were approximately $50 since each Chibiterasu measures 45cm or 17.71" long and they were shipped in their own containers. However, since we received numerous inquiries regarding the plush and a seeming willingness to fork over US$100 for a 'lil wolf-godling plush, NCS accepted reservations and all preorders are shipping today. NCS pricing is set at US$118.90 per plush + shipping. Sorry.
