NCS Product Synopsis
Update: February 3, 2006

«©NCSX» Ueki Kosuke goes to high school and lives the life of an average teenager. Everything is the model of normalcy until his teacher grants him the power of speedy recycling. Ueki's new ability changes trash to trees in the blink of an eye. Greenpeace would love this guy. With his new power, Ueki and his teacher Kobayashi sensei enter the "Battle of the Supernatural Powers" and face off against 98 opponents to win the ultimate prize - the Talent of Blank. The winner gets to choose whatever power he/she desires, like a super hero tabula rasa. With such a valuable power at stake, fighters will do whatever it takes to win...

In the PS2 game, Ueki battles assorted goons and competitors in 2D scrolling action with pseudo 3D features. For example, every stage has 4 planes on which Ueki may move to avoid foes or close in on an intended target. Ueki's powers are instantaneous in that trees pop out from his hands like second nature. A standard tree attack spurts out a little tree but hold the tree attack button longer and a larger tree eventually juts out and rams into anyone unfortunate enough to stand in its way. In addition to tree power, Ueki may also throw out punches to perform jumping attacks to shuffle up his attack repertoire.

NCS Game Notes & Spoilers
» The intro features a wide-eyed Ueki and the cam shifts to a view of him running and attacking as he transforms garbage into trees that pop out followed by the rest of the cast who also exhibit their unique powers.

» Upon starting a normal game, players may select only Ueki. The action starts along a highway near a town where three toughs assault Ueki. The hoodlums consist of a buster with a hair braids and inordinately round eyes, a maniacal clown-like bopper who wears an "I LOVE Hip HOP" jacket and green pants. His jacket is the hoodie type with blue stripes on tan background. The third trooper in this menacing trio is a triangle-eyed guy with a moppet mushroom haircut who wears a blue vest over a white shirt. His pants are striped auburn brown and white. Since they're rarin' for a fight, that's what they'll get.

» As the level starts, Ueki is viewed from an isometric perspective from the side and the game appears to be 3D but it's really a 2D side scrolling platformer. Ueki punches and performs special attacks where amazing powers will soon be put into play. The first opponent met on the street is the I LOVE HIP HOP guy who dances in place and throws out tornadoes which blow Ueki off his feet. To convert garbage to greenery, hit the TRIANGLE button to change it into a tree trunk complete with leafy branches and thrusting power which will send the hip hopper flying. Conventional attacks such as punches are thrown by hitting the O button while jumping is performed by hitting X.

» There are four planes of activity - foreground to background which may be reached by tapping the R1 and R2 triggers. A guard move may be raised by pressing the L1 or L2 triggers. After knocking the hip hopper a couple of times with punches, he'll jump to the background and the braid-wearing gangsta comes in for his turn. His power is throwing spear-like projectile but they may be interrupted if you reach him quick enough to punch him back. Note that garbage is not necessary for Ueki to manifest his power. Trees may be formed from nowhere as long as your "power meter" has a well of reserve left. Trees are basically powerful punches which knock foes back. For a lengthier far-reaching tree attack, hold the TRIANGLE button until the tree whips out automatically at full extension. Two cars in this level and a couple of waste baskets may be totaled. The third attacker with the mushroom cut walks around with both hands in his pants pockets and head butts in quick succession. Given the chance, he'll head butt multiple times while shuffling down the sidewalk.

» The hip-hopper continually says, "Yo, check it out cha'll" even as his butt is whupped. The powers of the enemies don't discriminate. If a hoodlum is caught up in a tornado attack, he'll get whipped up like Ueki does and sustain damage. Punching enemies against each other will also cause them to lose vitality.

» After defeating the trio, Ueki exults in the middle of the street, pumping his right fist into the air. If you press no buttons, the camera will continue to circle around him as he stands there in goofy repose.

» In the next scene, a fire breathing opponent meets Ueki in the basketball court and a duel starts. His power is a fire breath which is helped by a bottle of liquor that he carries. Similar to the first level, there are four planes of activity to rush along on and objects may be broken to release power-ups and health boosters. The fire starter will gargle the bottle of liquid audibly before firing off fireballs which streak across the screen.

» To perform an aerial tree attack, jump up and then hit the TRIANGLE button. A big old tree will arc diagonally downwards on an opponent.
