This was out of print and already hitting $60+. This is the reprint, and $5 off isn't bad.

Edit: now back to 34.99.

Agreed with DesertLeo. This game is by far the best rpg I played on the ds. Sold it after I beat it and have regretted ever since because of the price. In for one. Great find.

Amazing rpg. You would pay twice this for a console rpg of half the caliber that you can't play everywhere. Don't wait.

On the forum for this game on Amazon, they had a thread that said the reprint DOES NOT include the soundtrack

Nice! Thanks, OP! Think I'll pick this up.
By the way, if people really want the CD, Buy.com has it included for the same price, though you'd have to pay shipping. For me in CA, that means an extra $3, which I'm pass on. But here's the link:

My action/scifi novel, Still Man Fights, is available in paperback and e-book form at Amazon.com.

My new travelogue, Japan Chronicles: of Rock Gods and J-Pop Idols, is also on Amazon.com.

Went for the Buy.com one. Who knows, maybe they found some CD ones or some such. Fingers heavily crossed.

How was the CD packed with the game? Shrinkwrapped with the case or was there a cardboard box with both inside?

Cardboard box w/ it's own sleeve.

Weird, price on Amazon is back up to $34.99 now. That was quite a short sale. Oh well, looks like I missed out on saving $5 for a copy.

This is a Buy.com match. They had it for sale for this price when Amazon was apparently OOS. Then Amazon got them back in stock for $34.99 and couple days later lowered the price to this. ;)

Likely because Buy.com is OOS.

Ya i emailed the publishers directly and they confirmed that the reprint does NOT have the artbox or music CD.. so im asssuming everything on Amazon right now is the game only.

i wound up driving 100 miles round trip to get the last sealed mint LE copy anywhere near me >_< now i dont want to open it. I will probably get a regular copy to play when it hits 25 bucks or so

that blows that the price went up.... I really wanted to get this but my amazon credit hasn't processed yet :(

on a side note, I've heard that it compares a lot to chrono trigger... can anyone that has played the game elaborate? I absolutely loved chrono trigger.

Currently playing RH. Good game, but I would say that it has a very different feel from CT. The time travel theme is the only similarity that I see.

yea. I think I came to the conclusion that I can't compare games to chrono trigger... first, it's a pretty high standard to meet (for me at least) and second, games that I do find similar don't have a deep story or much character development like chrono did.

and on that note, I think i'll be starting the new game+ on my ds copy today :)

Its good, but WAY too many boss battles late in the game.

I was too late to grab a first-printing copy from Amazon & Buy but managed to find one at a GameStop 15 minutes away. It was their last copy so they did use the cardboard box for display but it was in surprisingly good condition and both the game & CD were still sealed.

I wasn't in a hurry to get this game since I still have a couple RPGs in my backlog. I just didn't want to have trouble tracking down a new copy w/ the box & CD at or under its MSRP in the future. For those of you who still want to get the bonus CD, I'd suggest you call your GameStops soon.

I will also chime in also and say that this game is awesome, and everyone should buy if they love a good, old school vibe RPG. I got the version with the soundtrack right before it sold out on Amazon. I'm a sucker for boxes that come with CE, so I had to jump on it. I love the box more than the CD actually... The CD is great though!

So... no soundtrack, but does that mean no outer box too? I kinda messed mine up with I opened it, need a new one.

The outer box says "Music CD Inside" on front so I doubt they reprinted the outer boxes.
