 3DS Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions - Import Preorder

From the Publisher
   PAC-MAN’s world has been unhinged in PAC-MAN Tilt. Take control of PAC-MAN in twisting 2D platforming levels filled with perilous obstacles, power pellets and wandering ghosts. Using the accelerometer capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS system, players will be able to literally tilt PAC-MAN’s world from side to side in order to solve devious environmental puzzles and sneak past roaming enemies.

   PAC-MAN can also use pinball flippers, spring boards and other objects placed throughout each level to help him reach each level’s goal. Tilting the screen when PAC-MAN has a running start will cause him to roll into a ball, giving him an extra boost of speed and access to narrow tunnels. Strategically using all of PAC-MAN’s abilities will be the only way to complete this all-new and exciting adventure.

   GALAGA 3D IMPACT immerses players into the role of a gunner on a space ship against an all-out war with the dreaded Galaga aliens. Using the Nintendo 3DS system’s gyroscopic and 3D technology, players are able to maneuver their perspective within the seat of the turret to aim and shoot enemies as they try to lay siege against the human race. The player’s real-life movements correspond to the action represented on-screen in an impressive mash-up of arcade shooter and virtual reality.

   PAC-MAN & GALAGA DIMENSIONS will be available this year for Nintendo 3DS. Preorders for the Japanese version of Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions are welcome to ship on June 23, 2011 at JPY4800 or US$58.90 from NCS. JPN Product Title: パックマン&ギャラガ ディメンションズ

 TOYS To Heart 2 Tamaki Kousaka Race Queen - New Import

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Tamaki Kousaka of To Heart 2 fame  is a ginger-maned alpha female who commands respect and admiration. Toy sculptors have used Tamaki's image to create statuesque figures which have found a receptive audience throughout Japan. The latest homage to Tamaki hails from Kaitendoh where she's a race queen garbed in a skimpy orange outfit. Tamaki's pose is airy and would be apt if Aphrodite herself ever gained employment in the field of motor sports.

   The fix-posed Tamaki Race Queen figure is sculpted to 1/12 scale and is fully painted for immediate display. Reservations are welcome to ship in late August 2011 at JPY3675 or US$46.90 from NCS.
