So it looks like Gamestop has reprinted more games. These never appeared anywhere near me, and now practically every location has them.

 

It's $24.99. If you can get it complete, it's a pretty good deal. The birthday coupon or a B2G1 makes it even better.

Hmm...my 2 closest locations don't have any copies.  Never played the previous games, do I need to play them in order?  Same with Mega Man Star Force series order matter?

Yes its a reprint. Gamestop has a secret underground printing facility in the wymoning mountains where they manufacturer the game plastic cases, print the stickers for the game, machines to encode the games chip, assemble it all, have a team of lawyers that negotiate the licensing of said products from the companies that own the rights and the developers who made the games originally and so on. Just so they can reprint an old game for a defunct system that would only appeal to a small percentage of gamers, all so they can make almost no money off of it. Because as we all know every single gamestop stocks in its stores and online that are out of print "must be reprints" because there is no way possible for them to have those games otherwise unless they actually made them themselves.

Gamestop has been doing this since the PS2 days when they worked with Namco to reprint Xenosaga III and Tecmo to reprint Fatal Frame. This is nothing new for them.

If you got one of the "reprint" games you'd know you're incorrect.

Has anyone seen if they're cart only or in the box? They seem to be doing a lot of disc/cart only reprints lately.

I really doubt this will be a complete copy. It will be just like Cave Story 3Ds were it was cart only.

I ordered star force 3 black ace from their site last week and it came complete with the case without a gba cart holder...wonder why they bothered to reprint these 2 can't imagine the demand being very high.

Battle Network has quite a bit of continuity.  You'll be half lost jumping in at 5.

At least no one has said that this "isn't a reprint, Gamestop just found all of these copies in their warehouse again" yet.

Both Battle Network 5 and Star Force 3 Black Ace were complete (or at least in the original case) at my local store. Today was the first time seeing them there.

You would be surprised what people go after once things go "rare." Do you remember My Japanese Coach? I couldn't believe some of the prices that game was was fetching at one point. The DS had a lot of good games but a lot of people skipped the boat or jumped on the 3DS, that's when I noticed a lot of other titles getting a littler harder to come by.

Same here.  My store also had complete copies of Kirby's Mass Attack & Ghost Trick.  I bought Ghost Trick and it looks brand-new, even has the Nintendo safety & warning pamphlet in it.  Not saying it's necessarily a reprint too, just throwing that out there since it IS also a Capcom DS game.

What's the point? You know he's going to post the same crap every time someone finds a new GameStop reprint. He treats everyone like a moron without realizing he's the moron, but we all know so let's stop politely showing him he's wrong because he obviously won't get it.

Cool, a friend of mine loves that game.  It was definitely memorable that's for sure.  Not really that much of a role playing gamer.

I don't mind reprints, especially of games worth the time.  Well, maybe the price is kind of high $25-$60 on them.

Hmm, I'm tempted...

 

I played 1 and 6 and enjoyed both.  They're RPGs with an interesting battle system.  Not really much like Megaman, but still good games.

 

I skipped most of them though only because they came out so often at the time (until they completely stopped making them lol)

Picked up both Megaman Battle Network and Starforce. They didn't have them out on the floor but the employee was kind enough to check and they had both games complete and mint in the drawer.

Very happy used both birthday coupons and rewards as well.
