Shipping today: Paper Mario 2 (NGC™), Street Fighter III 3rd Strike (PS2™), Boktai 2 (GBA™), Famicom Keychains & more


Several interesting items have started shipping today, opening a relatively busy week. On Nintendo's side we received the US version of Namco's RPG Tales of Symphonia, a first batch of Nintendo's RPG Mario Story 2 / Paper Mario 2 (both Gamecube™) as well as Konami's vampire RPG sequel Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django (Gameboy Advance™).

For PlayStation2™ owners we got Capcom's low budget 2D fighting game Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future.


As a slighty delayed import due to tropical typhoon Kompasu we also finally started shipping of the Korean version Windows PC game Sonic Adventure DX + Top Blade V [Limited Edition] as well as the Korean RPG game Zwei !!.

Toy related, the first July relase came in today with Banpresto's Famicom Keychain v3. Instead of shipping this goodie randomly we decided to split up into the 5 following models, which are now available at as low as US$ 5.90 only:

  • Famicom Keychain v3 - Model A: Family Computer + Joypad
  • Famicom Keychain v3 - Model B: Family Computer + RF Unit
  • Famicom Keychain v3 - Model C: Family Basic
  • Famicom Keychain v3 - Model D: Family Computer Robot
  • Famicom Keychain v3 - Model E: Twin Famicom


    Looking forward to tomorrow, we are expecting delivery of the Japanese version of Konami's latest shooter Gradius V. All preorders for this title are more or less confirmed to ship out within the next 24 hours, with new orders still welcome at US$ 59.90 only. The Korean version of Gradius V is on schedule to ship on Thursday/Friday and the Gradius V Official DVD THE PERFECT within the next week.

    And once again as a reminder for those who did not read our last import roundup, SNK Playmore's Gameboy Advance™ title Metal Slug Advance has once again be postponed for an unknown release in 2004. Customers with order changes are welcome to contact our customer service with their request.
