I was mildly surprised a blind search turned this up. The game is normally floating around $59.99 since it was out-of-print. I haven't played the game yet, and I can't order it due to splurging so much on a Vita, but I hope a couple of CAGs can get in on this!

P.S. I apologize if the format is wrong. This is my first time actually posting a find.

@TommyLove: So it seems. Was eyeing Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Souless Army and once the announcement for the reprint game, the game's price stabalized at $30 for now.

@havoksend: That sucks. D: Well, if you enjoy the game thouroughly, then your purchase is still justified? ^_^" I can't see myself spending over $40 for a Nintendo DS game.

I picked it up for $16 plus it wasn't that long ago. I remember when some CAGs were waiting for it to drop one more $1 then it shot back up $29.99. I can't help but get a laugh at that.

...yes...yes...YES YESY EYSEYSEYSYEYSYESYES

I literally almost dropped $80 for this, and while it probably won't be the copy with the CD, I'm happy it's getting reprinted. Hopefully at a lower price though. Thanks OP!

Was hoping this would be reprinted again since I missed it when it was $16. Hopefully I'll get it for ~$20 this time.

Now that I got alittle money in my pocket, I just buy first now and ask questions later. I knew at the time it might be rare. I even got it at 22.XX and watched it drop to 16.XX. I was mad i missed out on 6 bucks if i waited a day, but thankfully Amazon refunded the difference and I didnt press my luck waiting for it to drop lower.

Yeah its a very fun game. Ill probably hold on to it for awhile. I did get stuck though and might have to read where to go next lol.

This is precisely true. PlayCanada is very smart about his pricing model.

I didn't want to chance missing out on a reprint. Never know how widely available these will be, so I jumped on this one. Better to pay a few extra bucks for the security of getting a copy, while not getting fleeced on the prices being offered on the secondary market for first run copies. Thanks OP.

Awesome! Thanks TC! I just bought a 3DS last month and I never had a regular DS to begin with. I had been eyeing this game since I got it and didn't want to pay the $50+ that it was going for. At the normal MSRP, I'll gladly grab this copy, even though I really shouldn't be buying another new game.

Edit: Wow, 1 hour later and already shipped. Niiiice. Although the estimated delivery date spans 7 days, hahaha.

Had this been a must own OMG I GOTTA HAVE IT!!!!!!! collectors item (like Hyrule Historia or Fire Emblem or Xenoblade Chronicles or Metroid Prime Trilogy) then $1 wouldnt have mattered. But IMO Radient Historia is not a must own game. So I set a price I am willing to pay ($15) and stick with it. And while I probably would have pulled the trigger at $16 had I known the price would have gone back up (and seen the sale in time), I dont think it is a big deal that I missed it. This just isnt that special of a game (to me anyways)

Its through Amazon so it should be legit. I bought some suspicious stuff from Amazon before (like $2 for a bundle of Seinfeld posters or $0.01 for HDMI cables) and even the fishiest stuff turned out to be legit, the only exception ever being a phone .harger/USB cable that didnt work. The OP didnt mention what shipping is though and a lot of times when you see deals that seen to good to be true it is usually cause shipping is insanely high.

Ebay on the other hand, avoid it whenever possible. I dont see how it gets so much use, I have met assholes before who's primary source of income is scamming people on Ebay, I just dont get why people keep using it.

They are legit but as someone said, when PlayCanada sells a rare game cheaper than the rest, there is a very good if not a definite that a reprint is happening.

What about $2?

I was fortunate and jumped when it was $16.xx. Still sitting in backlog, though. For all we know this could now work its way down to a $10 game and all the people that passed at $16 will have the last laugh!

Most likely. I'm guessing more copies will start popping up at $30 or less.

I take it you haven't played Radiant Historia. It's honestly one of the best true JRPGs of the last decade. History has shown that this game retains it's value - it has been reprinted three times in the past. Once this new batch sells out, it will skyrocket again. You really should make this game a priority. It's fantastic in every way.

It has had three reprints thus far and they've all sold out. This would be the fourth.

thing that i find odd, is why is their reprints why not just keep selling the game as it sell out.

if it money issues they should hold petitions on their site every month when game goes out of print, which too bring back for short time if thier enough demand. verus trying find a used copy someone else now making a profit on it
Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise.
