Weekly import update: Japanese PS2™, NGC™ PSone™ & GBA™ titles: Pride GP2003, Busin 0, Love Smash Tennis 5 & more


This week has been rather calm with less releases compared to the last one. A few interesting titles for PlayStation2™ were released, including Capcom's Pride GP 2003 (which was supposed to be released last week already but pushed back one week for release today), Love Smash Tennis 5 and Busin 0: Wizardry Alternative Neo.

Unfortunately in our opinion nothing too exciting for our product of the week, so that we crowned the official Gamecube Broadband Adapter, which is getting very famous as online and multi player gaming is picking up on the Gamecube™ finally. The Broadband Adapter is in stock to ship within 24h at US$ 45.90 only.

Finally, here's a summary of everything new this week:

For PlayStation2™:
  • Pride GP 2003
  • Takahashi Naoko no Marathon Shiyouyo!
  • NBA Live 2004
  • Busin 0: Wizardry Alternative Neo
  • Love Smash 5
  • Rocky
  • Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup
  • Daisenryaku 1941 (Sammy the Best)

    For PSone™:
  • Sister Princess 2 Premium Fan Disc
  • Ao Jira to Nakamatachi ~ yume no boken

    For Gamecube™:
  • Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup

    For Gameboy Advance™:
  • Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup
  • Slime Morimori Dragon Quest: Shougeki No Shippo Dan

    As an additional notice, Nintendo's iQue Player has been postponed once more. A new release date has once again yet to be confirmed. Hopefully we will still see a release before Christmas.

    We will post an update as soon as anything new has been revealed. Preorders remain open at US$ 119 for the set incl. 5 launch titles.

    Also delayed has been the Hong Kong VCD release of Battle Royale II, with a new expected shipping date in end of December.

    All preorders for this VCD have been pushed forward. New preorders remain welcome at US$ 9.90 only.

    Last but not last as outlook for next week, we are expecting some very interesting releases again. For PlayStation2™ there will be Sony's music title Mojib-Ribbon (which is based on the famous Japanese PSone™ music title Vib-ribbon), Namco's RPG update Xenosaga Episode I Reloaded, as well as the Japanese release of Time Crisis 3 (available as standard version as well as set incl. a black GunCon2).

    For Gamecube™ owners we are expecting the US release of Mario Kart: Double Dash, as well as Pokemon Colosseum (which is shipping incl. a free Memory Card 59).


    Finally there will also be an interesting Japanese title for Xbox™ as well. The action/adventure game Magatama has been developed by Kawai Hiroshi, lead programmer of Square's Final Fantasy VII and IX.

    And for all Gameboy™ and GBA SP™ owners we are looking forward to the am3 Advance Movie Adaptor release.
