Weekly import update: Resident Evil 4 (NGC™), Mario Party Advance (GBA™), The Story of the Hero Yoshitsune (PS2™), King of Fighters Gals Collection Gashapon & more


It's been a relatively calm release week in Japan with a total of roughly 10 new titles published only. In the spotlight of this week however has certainly been Capcom's US Gamecube™ release of Resident Evil 4 (read here for release details).

Additionally well requested has been Nintendo's Mario Party Advance (Gameboy Advance™) and From Software's The Story of the Hero Yoshitsune (which is expected to be in stock in the next few days).

Despite the slow movement of new releases, the overall supply situation is easing again since most Japanese distributors have returned back to work from their annual holidays. Lots of titles that were sold out during the last couple of weeks finally start to come back in stock again (beginning today with Tomy's Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 3 for Gamecube™). Our pile of backorders for assorted items will be cleared throughout the next few days and week. Once again an apology to all customers who have experienced an excessive order processing time during the Christmas & New Year season.

Below you will find our usual summary of all new releases from this week:
