The following thread are for niche-based Japanese video games by smaller companies such as Atlus, NIS America, AKSYS, XSEED, D3 Publisher, KOEI/TECMO, SNK Playmore, Ignition, Natsume or any sweet deals for those who are passionate and hardcore about Japanese video games even from the bigger companies like SquareEnix, Sega, Bandai Namco, etc.

But to avoid any messiness of links everywhere, we'll focus on games within the last 2-3 years as opposed to the last five-ten. [although, if you do see older titles on sale, please post them regardless].

The theme of these deals are Japanese video games distributed in the US by the smaller niche companies. The thread is literally for those who love Japanese games.
There will be a few Korean games that you may see on this list, such as the "DJ Max" games.

If you see a deal, please post!

NOTE: Please check the most recent page for the latest deals.

And I want to thank many of you in advance who submit their deals and their support!!!

Just to let you know, Operation Darkness (360) is only $8.99 at newegg with free shipping. But, I'm sure that is covered in the $15 or less newegg thread as well.

this thread seems like it may get too messy.

there are just too many places that has all of these games at good prices, not to mention it fluctuates a lot.

i hope this is a thread that is going to be maintained and the op will get updated, and not just random people posting prices, and you will just be browsing through pages and pages of posts just to check whats updated and whats not.

it could be a nice thread as long as the op is willing to go ahead and actively keep track of everything thats being posted, otherwise it seems like one of those threads that will get rather hard to read through.

anyways, ill post my finds.

My World, My Way is very hard to find new (unless Atlus just ran another reprint but don't think so). It's OOP shortly after release.

Also, Aksys' Record of Agarest War got a LE treatment at the same price point in a similar way as BlazBlue (if you consider it a deal). Although the 'usefulness' of the LE goodies is questionable.

I love this idea, so many great companies all put together. I just checked My World, My Way New and there are 4 places within 10 miles that have it. There isn't a trade list for this thread, but PM me if you want me to pick up a new copy for you.

Thanks OP for the deals!

You may think that, but actually I already own all these games on account of my OCD. I buy them all on release date, no later. Besides, its Mom's credit card and I don't have to pay.

Plus, I couldn't think of doing something dishonorable such as not giving Atlus, NIS America, or Aksys the full $59.99 plus shipping and sales tax that they deserve. If I ever get a job and buy my own Atlus games I will go down to only 8 Hot Pockets per day to be able to continue buying every game I need, but that will never happen on account of my girth.

Just so the OP knows, he listed Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon as a PSP game, but it is actually a DS game.

Whoever buys Chulip has a serious retardation. You can go to any Gamestop and they have about 3-5 coppies of that game new/used. How do i know? I work for G-Stop it's my blue back disc to test PS2 systems with.

I preordered it myself, but I have seen copies at local gamestops still.

Also, is Adventures to Go really a deal if it's a GS exclusive?

And BlazBlue LE used price is the same as SE.

You may want to check Fry's if there's one in your area. A few days ago, I did see a copy there new.
