Weekly import update: Digimon World X, Tales of World: Narikiri Dungeon 3, Shin Sangoku Musou [Premium Box], Project Minerva Professional budget release & more

As common through the New Year period, it's been a very calm first release week considering the quantity of new titles published in Japan. Throughout this time, lots of distributors are taking holiday breaks, which often results into slight shipping delays. Despite the usual stock up we are doing through the pre-Christmas time, it remains unavoidable to be sold out on some titles during the first weeks of the year. The situation is expected to smoothen shortly and we'd like to apologize to those customers currently experiencing an increased waiting time until dispatch of their order.

Some new release titles have still seen the light in Japan today. Some highlights include Bandai's multi platform Digimon World X release, Namco's Tales of World: Narikiri Dungeon 3 (GBA™) and Koei's Shin Sangoku Musou [Premium Box] for PSP™. All items will be stocked up during the next couple of days.

Here's a summary of all new items published in this week:

Not to be missed out though is Capcom's US version Gamecube™ release hit Resident Evil 4, shipping as standard version and bundled with a biohazard4 umbrella.
