From the publisher: Since 1987, the FINAL FANTASY® series has sold over 63 million units, making it one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time. FINAL FANTASY XII carries on the tradition of gaming innovation, fantastic graphics and epic storytelling. With a brand-new battle system bringing more realistic and seamless action to the player's fingertips, this latest installment promises to take role-playing games to the next level through a beautiful and heart-stopping adventure.

The story of FINAL FANTASY XII takes place in a world called "Ivalice", in an age when magic was commonplace and airships plied the skies, crowding out the heavens. War was on the horizon. Seeking to strengthen its base of power, the great Archadian Empire had been invading and subjugating its neighboring kingdoms one by one. The small Kingdom of Dalmasca was one such kingdom. Our story follows Vaan, a young man living on the streets of Dalmasca's Royal City of Rabanastre, the Princess Ashe, the sole remaining heir to the Dalmascan throne who had been given up for missing, as well as Vaan's friend Penelo, the sky pirate Balthier, Balthier’s partner Fran and many more on an adventure through Ivalice that traces the mysteries behind the Archadian Empire's invasion.


Square-Enix's long-awaited RPG sequel Final Fantasy XII is finally available as US release version, shipping today at a price of US$ 59.90 only. The Final Fantasy XII Official Strategy Guide is expected to be in stock by end of this week.

    From the publisher: In ages past, an island called Illusia floated at the center of the world. At the heart of the island towered an ancient, enormous tree that stretched up to the very heavens. For ages past, chaos and sorrow had engulfed the world until at last its salvation appeared in the form of a boy, a girl, and a holy sword.

    Time flowed on and peace returned. The sword and the tree remained, and they soon came to be known as the Sword of Mana and the Mana Tree. Followers of the Mana Tree returned to Illusia as the world started slowly but surely down the path to recovery.

    From the publisher: With the help of Pokémon, set out on a fun-filled adventure! You play as a Pokémon Ranger in the Fiore Region, where you work to preserve nature and protect Pokémon.

    Pokémon Ranger is unlike any Pokémon game you've played before. You control your character using the stylus, and all Pokémon are captured using a Capture Styler instead of a Poké Ball. Since you're a Pokémon Ranger and not a trainer, you must release each captured Pokémon back into the wild after they help you. It's a whole new way to explore the Pokémon universe!
