 NDS Koede Asoubou Heart Catch Precure - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Do you have a beautiful voice? One that's sonorous and as crisp as the ding of a dinner bell? If you answered "yea" to both questions, you should probably think of a profession in the voice acting industry. Before diving into a voice acting endeavor however, you'll need to practice and hone your instrument into fighting shape. That's where Toei's Koede Asoubou Heart Catch Precure comes into play where players choose an animation snippet from the Precure animated series and take over the voice acting duties for one of the characters on the screen. In other words, you'll provide the voice for the character's subtitled dialogue while the NDS mic records your performance. Once the scene is completed, you can watch the animated sequence with your voice serving in the scene. A total of 50 scenes are included on the game card for your voice acting interludes.

 PSP Tactics Ogre Unmei no Wa - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The original Tactics Ogre game on the Super Famicom was one of those rarities where you'd start playing at 7PM and think to yourself, "I'm going to play for an hour and then eat dinner. I'm having my favorite tonight - frozen spinach lasagna." Upon starting the gaming session, you play and play and the next time you look up at the clock, it's already 2AM in the morning. You've missed dinner, the act of drinking water, showering, and you've probably only blinked five times so your eyes are pretty dry.

   Tactics Ogre has beguiled players on the Playstation, Saturn, and it made its way to Wii Virtual Console last year. The new PSP version of Tactics Ogre is a remake with a new subtitle of "Unmei no Wa" which translates to "Wheel of Fate." New features include an expanded storyline, a new heroine-knight named Raveness Loscaerion, an updated battle system, and other new systems. The Japanese love their systems.

   The male lead is a lad named Denim Powell who's accompanied by his sibling Catiua Powell. The rest of the cast is rounded out by Vyce Bozeck who's Denim's loyal friend, a paladin named Lans Hamilton, Canopus Wolff, Mildain Walhorn, and many more. At the outset of the game, Lans Hamilton and his crew helps Denim Powell rescue the Duke of Ronway. Once the Duke is free, he bolsters Denim's party with troops and sends him to Griate City to rescue a knight named Leonard. From there, numerous conflicts that play out on isometric battlefields ensue one after the other in rapid-fire fashion.
Early reservations will include a bonus Tactics Ogre Tarot Card that's being given away in 20% ratio.

 NDS Do-Konjou Shougakussei: Bon Bita! - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Side-scrolling 2D platform games were the rage a while ago but they're far and few between nowadays. Bandai's latest Nintendo DS release fits into the side-scrolling platform genre and it helps stave off the 2D platform death knell at least for now.
   The heroes of Do Konjou Shougakussei: Bon Bita! hail from the popular CoroCoro Comic series of the same name. The lead is a green-haired lad who can call upon an afro-wearing alter-ego for help when needed thanks to the RTS (Real Tsukomi System). Bon Bita's powers include blast-force flatulence, speed, and the ability to produce a river of water from his maw. In addition to his innate skills, a variety of "hats" may be worn which grant special momentary abilities to help Bon Bita overcome obstacles and adversaries.

 TOYS Portrait of Pirates "Strong Edition" Tony Chopper Ver 2

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Chopper's duties on the Jolly Roger sailing vessel are those of a  physician. He applies bandages and administers the medicine on the shop to anyone who's sickly and bruised. The crew thinks Chopper's a raccoon but he's actually a reindeer with a blue button nose.

   Despite Chopper's status as a physician and his supposed adherence to the Hippocratic Oath, he's not above doling out some hurt when the occasion calls. In the One Piece Strong World movie, Chopper dons a black mafiosi outfit and carries a bazooka. Repeat: a bazooka. This is a doctor we're talking about. Chopper's new POP Strong World 1/8 scale figure takes its inspiration from the movie and features a black garbed Chopper. The bazooka is slung across his back in the photo but it may be unstrapped and laid across his feet. Chopper is articulated at the neck and arms and measures approximately 10cm or 3.93" in height. All preorders have shipped as of yesterday.

 TOYS Chichinoe Plus Infinity Pin-Up Lady Hibiki

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» An older gentleman we've known for a few years once opined, "Son, anything more than a handful just goes to waste." It's unclear if he took into account the fact that humans have different hand sizes but his wisdom has fallen on deaf ears in the case of the Chichinoe Plus Infinity Pin-Up Lady Hibiki figure.

   The new Chichinoe+ figure sports an unusually large bosom but there's more. In addition to what Orchid Seed calls the "Small Size" (shown on the right side of the photo), two additional bosoms which are progressively larger may be swapped onto the figure to augment her breasts in a highly artificial manner. The largest breast size bears a likeness to flesh-colored watermelons in both shape and demeanor. All preorders have shipped as of yesterday but please note this item is currently sold out. If we're able to stock additional quantities, we'll update our product listings on our shops accordingly. Thanks.

 NEWS Trademarking "It's On Like Donkey Kong"

«©NCSX» Nintendo has filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark the phrase, "It's on like Donkey Kong." Really. This is another case of corporate douchebaggery where a somewhat common phrase that's used in the American vernacular is sought to be leashed and owned by a big corporation.

   Does Nintendo really need to own that phrase? Are they seeking the control of the phrase so that it can't be used in trite commercial advertising from other companies? Nintendo didn't even come up with the phrase. Sure, they own "Donkey Kong" but if another phrase pops up in popular culture with "Donkey Kong" in it, will Nintendo try to trademark that too? When will it end? If the phrase "I'm eating pie like Pac-Man" becomes popular, should Namco seek to control and own that phrase too?
