Weekly import update: 17 new titles for PS2™, NGC™, PSone™ & GBA™: Front Mission 1st, Naruto: Narutimett Hero & more


From this week's imports, a total of 17 new games have been added to our product pages. This week has definitively be a great one for all import game fellows with lots of big games such as Naruto: Narutimett Hero, Macross: The Super Dimension Fortress, The Shooting - Double Shienryu (all PS2™), The Castle of Shikigami 2 (NGC™), Front Mission 1st (PSone™), Far East of Eden: Oriental Blue (GBA™) and more.

Here's an update of all new titles from this week:

For PlayStation2™:
  • Naruto: Narutimett Hero
  • Macross: The Super Dimension Fortress
  • Simple 2000 Vol. 37: The Shooting - Double Shienryu
  • King of Fighters 2001
  • Shadow Tower Abyss
  • The Mark of Kri
  • Lara Croft - Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
  • Lost Passage
  • Lost Passage [Limited Edition]
  • Netsu Chu! Pro Baseball 2003

    For Game Cube™:
  • The Castle of Shikigami 2
  • Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike (shipping on Monday)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (shipping on Monday)

    Also for Game Cube™ we were finally able to restock the high demanded soccer hit Winning Eleven 6 Final Evolution in limited quantities. All backorders were cleared and new orders are welcome. The series is famous as Pro Soccer Evolution in Europe.

    For PS one™:
  • Front Mission 1st (shipping early next week)
  • Jaleco Collection Vol. 1 (shipping early next week)

    For Gameboy Advance™:
  • Far East of Eden: Oriental Blue

    Additionally there have been 10 Japanese titles republished for Xbox™ under the "World Collection" label. However we have decided not to stock those games since the demand for Japanese imports is rather low and for a republishing price, a price tag of Yen 4800 (which would retail at around $45-$49) is rather high - too high also to make Japanese gamers interested probably. Nevertheless if you want to have a look, feel free to check out the official World Collection website here.

    Finally a small notice regarding Nintendo's iQue Player that was scheduled for a release in China for today. Unfortunately the console has been postponed for a yet unknown release. All preorders are carried along and new reservations are still welcome.

    We will post an update in our news shortly as soon as more information have been revealed.

    Last but not least as a small outlook for next week we are expecting 2 interesting titles for PlayStation2™. There will be Global A Entertainment's shooter Choaniki: Sei Naru Protein Densetsu as well as Namco's 3rd game update Taiko no Tatsujin 3rd Generation (selling as game only version as well as set including a drum controller). Additional third party drum controllers are in stock already.


    For Game Cube™ owners, Mario Kart: Double Dash is expected 1 week afterwards, on or before November 7th.
