Just received an email from Atlus that they're reprinting after all the fan harassment/pleading/whining.

Looks like some sites are ready for preordering the reprint. Soundtrack not included in reprints.

So far posted prices are 34.99

Just a quick edit. Gaming news sites are reporting that the reprint goes on sale in March, though I haven't seen an exact date.

Is this game any good? The videos on amazon made it look like crap (although I guess I see where FFXIII-2 got it's inspiration from). I mean, if it's enough to get a reprint I guess it can't be terrible. But MSRP makes me feel this isn't much of a deal. :/

I really enjoyed it. The music (while a bit sparse in amount of tracks) was pretty nice, the protagonist isn't some dumbfounded idiot, and the traveling to different points in time is done in an interesting way.

As far as length, I think it took me 30-35 hours to beat it, just left a few sidequests undone.

It is official for anyone wondering.

If you're a fan of SNES era RPGs, then you should enjoy this game. Personally, it's my favorite RPG of the since the PS1 days... I loved every minute of the game.

If you like western RPGs (open world, multiple options) and/or the newer JRPGs (flash/style over substance) they have out these days, then you probably won't enjoy it.

It'll probably be around this time so you could probably get it cheaper if you wait.

well considering the last batch of them went for 60-80 on ebay...i'd say 35 is a deal for anyone who actually WANTS the game...thanks op.

Is it though? Megaman X Collection used to fetch a decent price, and now it's like $10 for a new copy on Amazon. I think reprint announcements can be a grey area on CAG, on the plus side it helps notify people that they can get in on a hard-to-find game, but it also isn't really a deal.

I think anyone who pays $35 for this instead of $60 on ebay considers it a deal.

People need to understand that MSRP doesn't automatically = not a deal.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

For those who have been wanting to get something that had been previously out of print it becomes a deal even if it is MSRP. It is still a deal until it is available, then it's just the usual price. Thanks for the thread I missed my chance when it was 25 for awhile and have been looking at many places and local stores trying to find a copy.

I'm glad its getting a reprint, it didnt even show up on my radar until it became hard to come across. As far as it being any good according to this website its their game of the year for DS.

Maybe it will go down to DQV levels eventually, that game is now $15! But not bad at $35, better than paying $80 on ebay.

So it's just the game only...Eh. & amazing how publishers still have the balls to charge more than $30 for handheld games, even $20+ is pushing it.

Not really, because a) this is the second reprint, and b) first run has the OST and outer box, which is what collectors would want.

:drool:

U off your podium now? Yes, there are plenty of games on the PSP, DS, etc that are worth more than $20, have you never played the Fire Emblems, Tactics Ogre, Advance Wars, etc etc? Get real!

Back on topic, yes this game is pretty great and won't be finished in 5-6 hours like a lot of console games I could speak of. Solid buy for RPG fans if you missed the 1st time. :applause:

That first batch of non-CD copies really wasn't a "reprint" since that was just a normal batch after the pre-order (1st print) versions ran out. There was no real gap between the two.

There was a few months in between the CD version selling out, and the vanilla version. The CD version sold out by February, and I don't think the vanilla version was available til the summer. At least, that's what I remember, because I remember having a hard time getting a play copy.

to be fair wasn't it $39.99? I had it preordered with OST but canceled few days before it came out :bomb:

reprints should all have 2nd edition etc printed. I was so pissed when Disgaea got reprinted.

Me too. I bought a used copy for $65 on ebay a few months before the reprint. Oh well, worth every penny. :lol:
