Weekly import update - 35+ new titles: Xenosaga II, Vampire Panic (PS2™), Daemon Vector, Metal Slug 3 (Xbox™), Choro Q Books (PS1™) & more


The last week of June has been very lively with lots of releases covering all major video game platforms. Of course most exciting in this week has been Namco's RPG Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Böse, which is also our product of the week. We have started shipping the Asian release version since Monday of this week and expect delivery of the Japanese release version either tomorrow or on Saturday. (Customers with a pending Japanese version order are still welcome to switch over to the earlier available Asian version if preferred.)

Apart from the standard release version, we are additionally expecting supply of the Premium Box set within the next 2 days. Despite a huge supply cut, we are confident to have sufficient quantities in order to cover all existing preorders. However due to increased costs by vendors as well as a higher shipping price, we will contact all customers who have preordered this item within the next 48 hours for order & price reconfirmation before shipping this item. New orders might open in the next week in case of any cancellations.

Further interesting for PS2™ owners in this week has been Vampire Panic (from Sammy) and J-League Pro Soccer Club o Tsukurou! '04 (from Sega). Xbox™ users got two interesting new releases with Metal Slug 3 as well as the Taiwanese developed action adventure Daemon Vector.

Besides more than 35 new video game releases, we also stocked up a few interesting toys, including Square-Enix's official Fullmetal Alchemist Trading Arts Vol.1, Mega House licensed Namco Classics Candy Toys as well as the Vana 'diel Clock. Please note though that delivery of the Final Fantasy XI branded clock won't take place until middle of next week due to a late shipment.
