Do things cease to exist if we forget about them?

For every decade, a special ceremony is held at a shrine in Oborotsuki island. 10 years ago, during a traditional Japanese concert, a case of suspected abduction occurred. Five girls disappeared without a trace as if taken away by supernatural forces.

Although the case was solved by a policeman, the girls seemed to have suffered from a special form of amnesia, they have forgotten what happened during their abduction. The amnesia disturbed the girls, but this matter seemed to have been settled when they moved away from the island.

However, unlike what everyone thought, this case was not over. 10 years later, two victims from the case were killed in a brutal manner and the survivors suspected it has something to do with Oborotsuki island. To find out about the truth behind the case and stop the killing before the culprit takes another life, two survivors, Misaki and Madoka set off to the island they have moved away from so long ago.

The remaining survivor Minatsuki Ruka seemed to be the only one who still retained some remnants of memories from her abduction ordeal. She remembered a melody, a group of musicians being surrounded by a circle of masked men and a masked woman who danced as if she was possessed by spirits. In search of the truth behind the memories and images that plagued her life, she, too set off for the island after Misaki and Madoka.

The ticket to a bone chilling adventure to Oborotsuki island is available. Zero: Gesshoku no Kamen is shipping as a NTSC J encoded Japanese version for Nintendo Wii™ for US$ 64.90 only.




Flying is a key element in this 2D fighter. The kingdom of Gawain is located in the center of the world. The strength of the inhabitants depend on their performances in the battle arena. Although the fights are timed, with their use of their special weapons called Windy, the participants can fly freely in the sky during battles.

With the emphasis on Windy and battles, the skills of the wielder and the level of the weapon soon became a symbol of power. To determine the fittest amongst the fit, a combat event is opened where the winner's any wish will be granted.

Tempted by the prize and the fun of battling out of gravity's control, this event attracted Windy Wielders of all races, and this include Izuna the unemployed ninja and her friend Kunoichi.

In this game, being blown away by your opponent does not mean an automatic K.O. Time your attacks and fly up into the sky before you launch your sure kill attack. The game makes use of the double screen feature of your DS console to allow you more control when you are up in the air. Make use of the training mode to practice flying and the wireless function to take on other Windy players you know in the real world.

Fly high and land a hard punch on your opponents in the combat arena. Windy x Windam is shipped as a region free Japanese version for Nintendo DS™ for US$ 39.90 only.
