 NDS Dig Dug: Digging Strike - New Import
   Pooka and Fygar dust off their hides and are back to battle a new generation of diggers. Massive monsters are raising a ruckus and an urgent call goes out to Susumu Hori aka Mr Driller. The original Dig Dugger, Taizou Hori, intercepts the message and thinks to himself, "I'm not dead yet, I can do everything that whippersnapper of a son can do!" (or something like that) and heads off to battle monsters in Susumu's stead.
   In the NDS update of a retro classic, the top screen depicts a bird's eye view of the level while the lower screen shows off the action from a side view... or an ant's eye scope.

PS2 Expansion Memory Card ASN

 PS2 Expansion Memory Card 128M- New Import
   Released last month in Hong Kong but higher memory prices have stunted production of EMS' Expansion Memory Card. We did however receive a small batch today and all preorders will ship this afternoon. Restock is expected within 2 weeks for new orders. The memory card has 128M capacity but requires the use of an official PS2 memory card with Magic Gate as a "booter" to initialize the PS2 before it will recognize the Expansion Memory Card. Pricing is set at US$25 for new orders but we will honor the preorder price of US$19 for customers who have already submitted reservations.
