 PSP Akiba's Trip - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the year 201X, a coven of vampires has descended upon Akihabara, Tokyo. They look like the natives - chiseled features, big eyes, and brightly hued hair, and they daywalk... just like the vamp killer known as Blade. Unlike the rest of the Japanese natives however, the vampires - known as the Kaguyashi - burn when their naked skin is exposed to sunlight. That's where you come in, a high-school-aged protagonist who gets embroiled in vampire drama and has to grab, snatch, and tear the clothes off the vamps in order to burn them from the face of the earth. The game is played in interactive sequences, exploration scenarios, and action-packed hand-to-hand combat interludes with ripping of clothes.

   The first production of the game is bundled with an original soundtrack which is being given away by the publisher in 50% ratio.

 PSP Doki Doki Suikoden - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Back in 2001, Irem caught the American spirit of April Fool's and ran a gag on the Japanese gaming public. The shenanigan was titled, "Doki Doki Suikoden" which was supposed to be a dating simulation based in the Suikoden universe. Maidens were to be wooed and otaku were up in arms when it was revealed to be one big joke.

   Fast forward to the 10th Anniversary of the 2001 gag and Irem's serious about Doki Doki Suikoden now. They're so serious that an actual game has been produced which revolves around some mysterious mischief inside a high school. The protagonist teams up with fellow students such as a junior named Kimika Yakumo and a sophomore who answers to Yuko Haizeru. Together, the team investigates the happenings at school and develop romantic feelings for one another.

   The girls in the game wear school uniforms, swimsuits, and gym shorts for a total of over 300 outfits - all of which may be shattered during the course of the game. As an aside, Irem also touts 50 types of socks and underwear that the girls wear in the game. When the hero explores the school, he's accompanied by a trio of fellow students who collaborate to fight enemy agents who are afoot. It is during the battle sequences where the classmates' clothing may be torn asunder. To imbue the heroines with special abilities, the aforementioned 300+ types of outfits may be worn for new talents and skills.
