360 Hori Real Arcade Twinstick JPN

Import Preorder: US$398.90/each

UPC/SKU Code: 611508172580

 X360 Hori Real Arcade Twinstick EX - Update
NCS Product Update
NCSX Hori sent out an email to customers who preordered the Xbox 360 Twinstick EX last night which detailed a physical change to the upcoming controller which is expected in October. The front of the Twinstick EX will now feature a download slope instead of a level platform which should make the controller more comfortable to handle. This should be the final change in the form factor of the controller but if there's any additional updates from Hori, we'll update our customers accordingly.
   NCS is not accepting any new orders for the Twinstick EX at this point but if any units are available from our Japanese vendors, we'll post an update.

 BOOK Street Fighter Artworks (Softcover) - Import Preorder
NCS Preorder Synopsis
NCSX Capcom celebrated two decades of Street Fighter earlier this year with a thick and heavy art book which rehashed a lot of great artwork from Street Fighter's esteemed history. The group shot from Hyper Street Fighter II is in there along with dramatic character portraits and assorted scenes from artists such as Nishimura and Shinkirou. To attract fans who may already own earlier Street Fighter art books which share a good portion of the same illustrations, Capcom also includes artwork from Street Fighter IV and new heretofore unpublished pieces from the various games. The book contains 320 pages and is printed on glossy paper stock. 

From the Distributor

Gathering over 1,500 illustrations created by Capcom's top artists over the past 20 years, this massive tome includes character designs, concept art, sketches, and promo artwork, plus many never-before-published pieces from both Street Fighter's past and from the all-new Street Fighter IV.

Domestic Preorder: US$68.90/pair

UPC/SKU Code: 027084819250

 TOYS Barbie Twilight Doll - Preorder
NCS Preorder Synopsis
NCSX The merchandising of pop-culture trends towards excess in Japan but North America isn't too far behind. Witness the Barbie-rization (no, that's not a real word) of the main characters from the popular Twilight franchise. Based on what we've gleaned from our sole viewing of the Twilight movie, Edward is an unconventional vampire who only feasts on the blood of animals and his skin sparkles in sunlight. Bella is a transfer student who becomes Edward's girlfriend even though she's a human. Intriguing.

From the Distributor
Twilight, both the novel series by Stephanie Meyer and the blockbuster film series starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, has become a worldwide phenomenon, as fans are drawn to the timeless romance between the mortal Bella and her vampire beloved Edward. Who better to capture the young star-crossed love of these two characters than Barbie and Ken? Bella is dressed in her trademark outfit of jeans, sneakers, and grey jacket as seen in the film. Edward has the pale skin and piercing eyes of the vampire. Preorders are welcome to ship in November 2009 at US$68.90 for both dolls as shown in the product photo.

3DO AutoBahn Tokio JPN

Sale Import: US$16.90/each

Jan Code: 4984824110786

Publisher: Panasonic

 SOTW AutoBahn Tokio for 3DO - Sale
NCS Sale of the Week Offering: August 03, 2009
Original Release in Japan: December 22, 1995

New and factory sealed copy of AutoBahn Tokio for the Japanese 3DO which was published by Panasonic in 1995. Back then, the original Playstation had already launched and Namco's Ridge Racer was wowing the rabble something fierce. AutoBahn tried to be something more than Ridge Racer with a Championship Mode, a Time Attack Mode, night driving theatrics, and a title screen announcer who bellowed out "AUTOBAHN TOKIO" as if his life depended on proper enunciation. The execution is a little jerky, the controls are rough, and the engine sounds are wimpy but it's a measly $16.90 for a brand new 3DO game that most players have never had the opportunity to enjoy. We use the word "enjoy" loosely.
Product Condition
NCS' remaining AutoBahn Tokio inventory is brand new, factory sealed, and still packed in the original manufacturer cartons.

Sale Offering

Pricing per copy of AutoBahn Tokio is set at US$16.90 each. If you reside in the USA, NCS recommends USPS Media Mail shipping for the most economical domestic service. International customers are encouraged to select USPS First Class Airmail at approximately US$11.
