It's not about how much time you spend under the hood. It's all about your skills behind the wheel. Experience hundreds of vintage and modern vehicles from the world's top manufacturers as you work your way up from amateur to the top professional driver. As in the real world, Enthusia Professional Racing emphasizes pure driving skill and ensures that winning is a result of ability rather than how much time and money has been spent tuning your car.

Product features:
  • Utterly realistic controls: Enthusia Professional Racing utilises a number of key advances, including a non-linear throttle to give the player total control over acceleration and deceleration, while the PlayStation2's controller is also used to effect a side brake and clutch.
  • Build your driving skills from amateur to top professional.
  • Advanced physics calculations recreate behaviors of each vehicle.
  • Photo-realistic graphics of all the cars, tracks and environments.
  • Visual Gravity System offers real-time traction and handling info.
  • New Cars: Old and new versions of the RX-7, 180SX and Imprezas are now included, while the Garaiya an originally modeled sports car created by Japanese manufacturers, Autobacks has been faithfully recreated.

Konami's Enthusia Professional Racing is in stock today shipping at US$ 64.90.



After the previously released Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, La Pucelle: Hikari no Seijo Densetsu Nishuu and Phantom Brave, Nippon Ichi pleases fans of the genre with their latest strategy RPG title for PlayStation2™.

Phantom Kingdom stars Lord Zetta, lord of the netherworld, who has recently blown up his own kingdom and convinced three evil gods to remake it. However, Zetta is a nobody in this new world, and must build up a brand new army and conquer it all over again. The three gods, being evil, bemuse themselves by messing up Zetta's plans as he attempts to re-ascend his throne.

Yoshi and Baby Mario are about to embark on another wild adventure, this time on the Nintendo DS™!

Using the Nintendo DS™ system's two screens and touch-screen capability, you'll have to help Yoshi guard Baby Mario and guide him to safety. On vertical-action levels, players must use the stylus to draw clouds on the touch screen to protect Baby Mario from enemies and lead him to Yoshi. On horizontal side-scrolling levels, players must use the stylus to look out for Yoshi as he gallops across the countryside. On top of all that, Yoshis Touch & Go (temporary title) also features two-player wireless play.

Yoshi's Touch & Go is a great example of the innovative gameplay available with the Nintendo DS™. Creating lines of clouds with the stylus is fun and intuitive, and despite the simple control interface the game can actually become quite challenging. There is something distinctly satisfying about drawing clouds on the bottom screen, then watching them scroll up and affect the game on the upper screen.


Yoshi's Touch & Go (previously released as Catch! Touch! Yoshi! in Japan) as in stock now shipping at US$ 39.90.
