Another 2 early releases: Shadow Tower Abyss (PS2™) & Far East of Eden: Oriental Blue (GBA™)

Another 2 releases came in today, both quite interesting titles for import gamers as well. Apart from that we stocked up all major releases from yesterday as well since the demand is now picking up for most of the titles. All Naruto: Narutimett Hero preorders are confirmed to be shipping until tomorrow. Unfortunately no sufficient keychains were allocated for this game. Those few we got were mixed randomly under all existing orders now.

New in today:

In Shadow Tower: Abyss, unlike traditional RPGs, you do not have the concept of experience points, instead your body becomes more powerful the more you use it. During battles, you can aim at certain body part of the enemies, such as attack the enemy hands when they carry weapons, this can greatly reduce enemy's attack power.

Shadow Tower Abyss from From Software is shipping at US$ 59.90 only.

Blue Tengai: Oriental Blue is a side story of the Tengai Makyou series. The world of Oriental Blue resembles ancient Japan, China, Mongolia and Thailand in different areas. You can begin the game as either a boy or girl, and you can recruit 11 other companions throughout the quest, but certain companion will only join you if the lead character is a boy or a girl.

The game features a free scenario system, the progress of the story changes depending on the action of the player, and the story progresses even if you are defeated by bosses.

The enemy's parameter is set to adapt the progress of the scenarios, so certain enemy may appear more powerful when A plays it, and weaker when B plays it.

A Diary System is present in the game, when two or more events progress at the same time, the progress of each event is recorded in the diary, so you do not get lost when you finish one event and go back to the others.

There is a Ma Stone system in the game, Ma stone is the source of all energy, it can produce various effects in battle and movement. Two kinds of Ma stone exists, one is Raw Ore and the other is Synthetic Stone. You can synthesize new kinds of Synthetic stones with raw ores using the synthesis machine. Synthetic stones can carry various effects, such as increase your power and give you new abilities.

You can access various mini-games throughout the quest, such as slot machines and Toruku cards.

Blue Tengai supports the GBA link cable, you can exchange the Ma Stones, diaries and items with other players over the link cable.

Developed by Hudson and published by Nintendo, shipping now at US$ 48.90.
