Weekly import update: Beatmania IIDX 7th Style, Gashapons, Trading Arts, E-Cards, Special Discounts.


As expected, this week was quite silent in terms of new import games. This week was AMAZING in terms of news about upcoming handheld systems, toys, movies etc. Just the Japanese import games did not play tango. Don't worry! We got plenty of things to tell so enjoy the weekly import update without import games. And, if you do worry, no, the outlook for the coming weeks is very good. Trust us, look here

Let's start with the only release we had this week. Though this one is good for 5 other games. At least. beatmania IIDX 7th Style is shipping from tomorrow (that makes it 14th of May). Our initial stock is enough to cover 70% of the existing pre-orders. Further stock is anticipated on a daily basis over the next days, even before the second batch is released in Japan.

A completely different story - as you may very well be aware the E3 is happening as we speak. That's good news because we're looking at two major video games systems releases just before the end of this year: Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) as well as Nintendo's Nintendo DS. We have dedicated a news story to each of them - certainly not enough but please bear with us.

    Toys! We had plenty of toys added over the past days. You might check out the news here or even here. Most likely you will love these. The Nintendo History Collection Gashapon: Famicom is available seperately or included in the set. The Pikmin 2 Puzzle E-Card [one pack] help you to explore new worlds in Pikmin 2. Check out more here in our Toys category.


    The ball keeps rolling. All soccer fans out there had a happy monday. We are very looking forward for this game. Pre-orders are accepted here.

    Our outlook for next week is very very good. For PS2™ we're looking, amongst others, at Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Simple 2000 Vol 50-52, GBA fans get their Volume 11 - 20 of the Famicom Mini Series games. Plus we'll be able to spice that up with regular additions to toys, classic games and movies. Stay tuned!
