Atlus sent out an e-mail today saying that Dragon's Crown was pushed back to 2013. It's listed again on Amazon for $50 on PS3 and $40 on Vita.

If any of you contact Amazon regarding your previous preorder, please post back here with your experiences.



Eventually got a $20 credit. I think what did it was pointing out that someone else in the same situation had gotten the game for $30 after complaining. In case anyone is wondering, I actually did use the credit to pre-order Dragon's Crown again. O:)

They have less than 50% of the stock left of the Atelier Meruru Premium Edition http://store.nisamer...Limited-Edition

Also, just in case anyone else has this issue, If you pay using paypal they charge you immediately, unlike what it says on the store page. Just a heads up!

That's what you get for ordering 10 copies!!! On a serious note, that is really good that they did that. I'm sure we will still see a million people complaining that they missed out on it still.

Regarding the cancelling order of Dragon's Crown:

I emailed Amazon about the Dragon's Crown pre-order cancellation and here is what I got.

You lucked out man. I made all the points you did, but my CSR would not budge because his "lead" wouldn't let him... :/



I have to side with the rep on this one. I'm sure you can yell at them to the point they will yield and give you the credit but in reality, they really don't owe anyone that previous price as the item has changed. It has a new developer and producing team in the form of Atlus and that same team publicly announced that many changes will be taking place in regards to this game, one of those being the release price. So Amazon was correct in canceling out the older pre-orders as that particularly item no longer existed.

Now, I'm sure everyone is going to disagree with me on this :lol:.

I got Rorona Premium for $29.99 and Totori Premium for $39.99, so it's hard to stomach a $65 on Meruru. Which items are the NIS only exclusives? I'll pass on a t-shirt. I think Amazon has the artbook included? So would just be missing the OST.

Same, as much as I'd like to support NISA that is just too much. After tax it'll come to about $70. Can't shell out that kinda dough, I'm expecting a drop on it similar to Totori.

It is KOF XIII for the Amazon Lightning Deal for $24.99 (PS3) but noticed the PS3 doesn't mention of it coming with the soundtracks. Was the XB360 version that only came with the soundtracks?

I'm pretty sure both versions came with the soundtrack, but it was only for launch copies of the game.

Pretty sure every copy ever made comes with the soundtrack. The game sold pretty poorly and there was no second print run from what I understand.

I didn't know that. That sucks...I've been playing and collecting KOF games since the Sega Saturn but after the last mediocre game, I held off on this one but I figured I have been collecting this game for so long...and it comes with 4 CD's...had to get it!

Looks like it is Final Fantasy XIII-2 right now for $24.99 ala Amazon lightning deal and they give you a choice of PS3 or XB360 but I'll hold off...most newer FF games tend to drop quickly in price it seems.

If you missed the Amazon deal you can still get the Euro version from Play-Asia for $25. http://www.play-asia...en-70-4gpv.html

Says "deluxe edition" so I would imagine includes soundtrack

Deluxe edition doesn't. Just comes with an art cd and a poster I believe.

I thought that someone posted a NISA e-mail response that said that the entire premium edition was a NISA Store exclusive, not just the t-shirt.

Subject: Atelier Merurur Grand Finale LE

NIS America,

Is the Atelier Meruru Limited Edition a NIS store exclusive?

The Prinny Bomb indicated it would be exclusive, but the product page only lists the t-shirt as exclusive.

I am asking because if it is NOT exclusive to your store, I can purchase it directly through a retailer with whom I have store credit.

Thank you,
Richard


Update for Case #7000 - "Atelier Merurur Grand Finale LE"

Hello Richard,
Thank you for contacting us.
The entire limited edition set for Atelier Meruru is indeed exclusive to our online store.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to let us know.
Support Representative
NIS America, Inc.


For those of you who care : )


Yea, I remembered incorrectly.

The entire premium edition is a NISA Store exclusive, but all copies come with the soft-cover artbook; so in theory, if you get the standard edition, you will be missing out on the larger box, OST, and T-shirt.

The t-shirt is too big and The "larger" box is still smaller than the Atelier Rorona Premium box.

I wish NISA would have put something better than a t-shirt.

Too bad niche games get bad CE treatment here in the US.
Japan gets awesome "niche" CEs.
