Enter a courtroom like no other in the sequel to Capcom's surprise hit Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All (aka. Gyakuten Saiban 2 in Japan) introduces four new cases featuring new characters, plot twists and gameplay features. Players resume the role of Phoenix Wright, a defense attorney who must prove his client's innocence against the toughest of odds and most ruthless of adversaries.

As in the first Phoenix Wright game, each case involves two distinct storylines. In the investigation phase, you survey crime scenes, interview witnesses and gather evidence that will be used in court. Then it's on to the court phase, where you pesent findings from the investigation to support your case, listen to testimonies, cross-examine witnesses, and tease out fact from fiction so you can prove your client's innocence. All presented in a comical anime style.

Just like its predecessor, Gyakuten Saiban 2 features full English/Japanese text support. Just press the lower button on the game's start screen to switch the game into English.

Gyakuten Saiban 2 is the second game in the popular court room battle series from Japan and ported from the original GBA™ version Gyakuten Saiban 2 to the Nintendo DS™. The game is released as "Best Price" budget release version right away.

From the publisher: Marvel™: Ultimate Alliance is an all-new action/RPG where players create their Marvel dream team from the largest roster of Super Heroes ever in an epic quest that will determine the fate of Earth and the Marvel universe.

But now, Dr. Doom and a newly reformed Masters of Evil have plans for world domination, and the heroes must band together to defeat them.

Playing as some of the most revered Marvel characters, gamers will embark on a dangerous journey across exotic terrain and well-known comic book locations like Atlantis, the Shield Heli-Carrier and the Skrull home world in an attempt to defy the world’s most notorious Super Villains. Created by Raven Software, Marvel™: Ultimate Alliance lets players control the most powerful Super Hero alliance the world has ever known.

After the success of their portable rhythm action game DJ Max Portable - originally released in January 2006 - the Korean based company Pentavision has now released a new International Version of their PSP™ hit.

DJ Max Portable (International Version) has been fully localized into English language, including English onscreen text as well as an English language manual. On top of this, a brand new song has been added - "River Flow" (composed by Planetboom), not found in the original release.

DJ Max Portable (International Version) for PSP™ is in stock today, available at US$ 49.90 only. This new release automatically replaces our stock of the original version, which is now no longer available.


Game features:
  • Diverse collection of 50+ songs wrapped with dashing and unique visuals will hold you spellbound with the killer sound and the fantastic graphics of DJ Max Portable as soon as you turn it on.
  • We present not a simply converted game but a truly original title by game control system which can draw forth the best play modes in PSP™.
  • You can enjoy totally new aspects through various original elements such as infinite combo system, analog notes and etc. which you could not experience in other rhythm action games.
  • DJ Max ushers new a world of real entertainment titles with OST mode where you can peacefully listen to music, and M/V clips mode, which enables you to appreciate high quality music videos.


Tales of the Tempest, the first Tales title for the DS concerns Caius, a boy with the ability to unleash the beast inside him, and his quest to find his true parents. The game is presented in 3D and uses a battle system similar to Tales of Rebirth. Enemies and allies are all on 3 lines, with the player switching between them at will. The Touch Screen may be used for special attacks never before seen in the Tales series, allowing lots more variety in battle. The big feature of this game is the ability for certain characters to transform into werewolves, gaining extra power and speed at the cost of techniques.

Namco's Nintendo DS™ RPG game Tales of the Tempest is finally in stock today, available at US$ 48.90 only. Also shipping at the same time is Hori's Tales of the Tempest DS Lite Accessory Set, containing a Tales of the Tempest branded Protector Kit (up/down part) and a slim type Card Case DS.




Pinky Street: Kira Kira * Music Hour is a rhythm action game, based on a series of three touch panels for you to interact with as the beat rolls by. You hold the Nintendo DS™ sideways, with the touch panel on one side for gameplay and the other side showing a full-body view of your dancer and her competition. Your movements will be completed with your stylus.

Up top is a meter showing the song's beat and one of three color blips for an upcoming beat. That color will light up one of the three touch panels when it reaches the beat, and you must take action in that panel to hit the note. Sometimes the note will be just a single tap, other times it will light up with arrows that you must stroke for the music hit. Build your "Rainbow" combos and beat your opponent on the dance floor either in single player or multiplayer mode.

The game also contains a full story mode to play through. Included in this is a large mall town to explore, with several points of interest for your smiley-faced female dancing idol. You can go shopping for outfits for her or visit clubs to play games. There's even a cute photo booth for fashion-crazy girls (and pervy boys) where your 3D character will strike a number of poses as you take pictures of her.


Pinky Street: Kira Kira * Music Hour for Nintendo DS™ is shipping today as standard version (US$ 48.90) and First Print Limited Edition (US$ 59.90), which includes a figure of the game's main character. The latter has only arrived in limited quantities today, but more supply is confirmed later this week, covering all remaining preorders as well as new orders.
