Heroes often emerge in these chaotic times, and in a small, neutral country, Galia, such a young man came forward to join the fight.

The white Gamecube™ controller is compatible with both Gamecube™ and Nintendo Wii™ consoles and is in stock today. It is sold at the same price as the Asian purple version at US$ 24.90 only, while the US platinum version is sold at US$ 28.90 only.



Days of Memories2 features the last three games in the Days of Memories series. Like its predecessor, the SNK characters show up, not as fighters, but as potential partners for romantic dates. The games included in this package are: Days of Memories – Kare to watashi no atsui natsu, Days of Memories – Koi wa good job and Days of Memories – Junbaku no tenshi tachi.

Days of Memories – Kare to watashi no atsui natsu is the only installment in the series for girls. It takes place during the heroine's second year of high school. The game is without a specific plot since the love story between the heroine and her crush is decided by the player.

Days of Memories – Koi wa good job takes on a more mature route as the characters are adults instead of teenagers and it features the conflicts between a person's career and their romance. The hero is a cameraman and his relationship with the ladies from SNK's series is awkward, yet sweet.

Days of Memories – Junbaku no tenshi tachi has the strongest plot twists in the series. It is filled with horror, thrilling and suspenseful elements. It takes place in a large hospital with secrets buried under its pure white exterior. Solve the mystery and discover the tragic pasts of the girls before the evil that lurks in the wings of the hospital overtakes them.
