From the publisher: The story begins as Johnny Garland, a young 16 year-old detective who lost his father, sister, and some of his memories in an accident, accepts an investigation to track down a criminal suspect who has jumped bail. As he closes in on the suspect, Johnny witnesses a supernatural occurrence – a huge monster appears from a green light known as a “Window” and swallows up the criminal.

Apparently, a series of horrific incidents similar to this have been plaguing cities across the nation. Johnny’s female counterpart is 21 year-old bounty hunter Shania, a Native American who is searching for these mysterious Windows, determined to close them using her spiritual powers. Together, they travel across North and South America and are joined by a colorful cast of characters.

Back in the Nintendo64™ or Dreamcast™ times, video game hardware manufacturers did not ship their gaming controllers with standard vibration function, but released separate hardware addons, such as the Nintendo64™ Jolt Pack or Dreamcast™ Puru Puru Pack.

Nintendo has now reinvented this accessory for their Nintendo DS™ system. Attached to your Nintendo DS™ (or Nintendo DS™ Lite) handheld, the DS Vibration Cartridge provides vibration for a number of supported games. The number of titles supporting this accessory isn't very long so far but hopefully going to grow in the future.

Supported games as of now are Mario & Luigi RPG 2, Metroid Pinball and Shunkan Puzz Loop. We have stocked up limited quantities of the DS Vibration Cartridge, now shipping at US$ 24.90. Please note that the cartridge will slightly stick out of the unit when used with a Nintendo DS™ Lite console.

Based on Sega & Konami's PSP™ releases from this week, we have today received the Segadirect/Konamistyle exclusive Limited Editions of Sakura Taisen 1&2 as well as Tokimeki Memorial: Forever With You.
