A Tale of Modern Games In Two Parts

PART ONE
National Console Support stocks a new model of Koyori from Sengoku Cannon. For reference, this is Koyori.


In characteristically delightful NCSX prose, the store's website reveals that the Koyori model's clothing can be removed. NCSX expects the figures to sit on hand for several months.

PART TWO
NCSX sells out of the figures within a few hours.

PERSONAL OPINION
Sengoku Cannon, being a side-scrolling PSP shooter from Psikyo, sounds cool at first, but not after you've seen the boring screenshots and read the unflattering reviews. Given the choice, I'd sooner have a Koyori figure, which could at least lie sealed in a safety deposit box until the day it's worth a grand on eBay.

Oh yeah, and buying frenzies surrounding naked toys are hilarious.
