 X360 Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» The year is 2010 A.D. and an invasion of alien insects is in progress. Not just any old insect that buzzes and can be shooed away with a wave of the hand. No, these insects are bigger than mobile homes and have a penchant for rampant destruction. Ants and spiders lead the insect vanguard but powerful robots are also part of the invasion on the planet. The action takes place in New Detroit where 15 missions of exciting insect killing carnage awaits intrepid soldiers.

   When ants are swarming around New Detroit, players might feel a sense of despair as the insects scrabble everywhere and attack buildings in creepy, crawly fashion. Players may engage in a Campaign mode, a Remix Campaign mode, and an online Survival Mode. A cooperative for two players allows gamers to destroy insects in split-screen mode. Players can also opt to challenge themselves by ramping the difficulty level to "Hard" or "Inferno" if they're looking for more intensity in their insect killing activities. Similar to earlier Earth Defense Force games, the backgrounds are interactive in that buildings may be leveled once they've taken enough damage. Preorders are welcome to ship on July 7, 2011.

 3DS Bikkuriman Kanjuku Haoh Sanmi Douran Sensouki - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Confectionary manufacturer Lotte once sold and is selling Super Bikkuriman peanut and chocolate waffle candies which include a little sticker inside every individually wrapped piece. The stickers are sort of collectible and ignited a firestorm of merchandising back in the day which broke into manga, animation, foodstuffs, and video games.

   Nippon Ichi is latching onto some of that old time magic by producing a new video game where colorful characters use Super Bikkuriman stickers imprinted with kanji characters to do battle. By stringing together kanji to create new words, players may launch devastating attacks which may be considered combos. Get it? Combos. In addition to original characters, a roster of heroes from Nippon Ichi's Disgaea games also make an appearance in the kanji interaction. Preorders ship on July 21, 2011.
