iPad iNVADERCADE for iPad - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
 «©NCSX»  The September 29, 2011 issue of Weekly Famitsu features a sneak peek at the iNVADERCADE from Taito which transforms an iPAD or iPAD2 into a desktop Space Invaders arcade cabinet. A ball-top joystick is located on the left side of the cab while a single button near the middle of the control console ensures that the cabinet won’t have much utility outside of playing Space Invaders.

The cab also serves double duty as a charging dock and is equipped with stereo speakers and a headphone jack located on the right side of the control console. The price of the iNVADERCADE is set at JPY15800 or US$259.90 from NCS. Delivery in Japan is expected on October 11, 2011 and preorders are welcome.
