Nintendogs' great graphics and touch-screen interactivity take the pet genre to an entirely new level. Selecting "Scratch" from an options menu is one thing, but actually taking your finger and rubbing the touch screen to scratch your puppy's stomach is quite another.

Walking your pup around the neighborhood is vital, as you’ll find items and meet other dogs. Over time, your pup’s stamina will increase so you can explore farther and farther. You also can interact wirelessly with your friends’ Nintendogs – you can set your DS to bark at you whenever another puppy is within wireless range.

Genki's Shutokou Battle racing series has first appeared on PlayStation™ in 1996. While the titles released under the label were initially mainly fascinating racing freaks who dreamt about driving through Tokyo's highways inside a tuned up Japanese sports car, more popularity was gained when the series hit Sega's Dreamcast™ and PlayStation2™.

Shutokou Battle: Zone of Control (also known as Tokyo Xtreme Racing: Zone of Control) is not a simple port. A new team feature has been implemented bringing alternation into the game. In one of 15 available teams, you will fight for hegemony in the streets. You try to gain control over parts of the city by challenging the competition. Since the team leader decides about who is competing, it's further important to make yourself heard within your own team.

The designers have set value on graphical details of your sports cars. Not to be missed are spoilers, rims, neon light underneath the car, stickers and much more.


Genki's Shutokou Battle: Zone of Control for PSP™ is in stock today shipping at US$ 59.90.

After release of the Graphite Black and Pure White Limited Edition Nintendo DS™ colors in the end of March, another two eye-catching special editions have been released today. Nintendo's latest handheld innovation is now available in Candy Pink as well as Turquoise Blue color variations. Each limited edition model is available as long as supply lasts at US$ 189. All models are multi lingual and technically identical to models released outside of Japan.




Almost precisely one year after release of the meanwhile sold out Final Fantasy Trading Arts Vol.1, Square-Enix makes their fans happy with another toy related release of one of their popular video game series. Based on the Kindom Hearts franchise, the Kingdom Hearts Formation Arts feature six characters available as either colored or metallic version.

Characters included in the Formation Arts are Sora, Donald Duck, Jack Skellington, Maleficent, Hades as well as Shadow. With approx. 160g per pack and a size of 11 to 19cm per item, the figure is larger and heavier compared to the Final Fantasy Trading Arts and justifying the slightly higher price tag of US$ 9.90 per figure.

Please be reminded that all trading figures are sealed and therefore shipped randomly. Upon order of 10 units, we will supply a factory sealed container, which from our experience increases (however not guarantees) the chance for a complete set.
