I was going to post here about Analogue Pocket preorders going live, but everything is already OOS.

https://www.analogue.co/store#pocket

I was online and ready, got a black, white and dock. Got stalled on the shipping calculator for about a minute but finally got through.

Damn. They bought up everything.

Seems silly to have a limit on preorders on hardware like that. Why not phase 2 coming after May 2021?

I didn’t get the dock, I thought about it but decided not to, only picked up the game gear cart.

If we have to wait nearly a year for the analogue pocket, i can wait another couple of months for the 2nd wave. We will have reviews by then, and won't have hundreds of dollars held up for nearly a year. Hell, i already have $20 held up with target for Indivisible for what feels like a year and I don't like it.

I’ve got a few different analogue products and am super happy with them. I expect they’ll get it right, it not they always have demand on the secondary market.

Amazon, Gamestop and Best Buy are all carrying that one.  It has been delayed to October by the way but only Amazon has updated the listing to reflect the new date so far.

Looks like it's a joint venture between JP Switchmania and Hagen's Alley, so it seems legit. I tried ordering one copy and the minimum shipping option was $8.65. $49 is a lot for a physical version of a $15 eshop game.

Klaus is a really well done platformer and recommended to anyone who enjoys the genre.

Do they have any active promo codes? I think I remember seeing promo codes for first time buyers but it may have been a while ago. I made an account today but I haven't bought anything from them yet.

I tried the newsletter coupon and it didn't work.

I  believe they had a promo 15OFFONJOIN

which I had used a while ago for Umihara Kawase Fresh! to order my 1st game.

Im not sure if its still works or not. 

Good luck!

$68.xx shipped. That's an automatic no from me. Ikaruga was one of the games I was actually excited to pick up physically, too. Damn. Hopefully there's a reasonable option for this at some point.

It might, but it won't come with all the extras

I have a feeling it will (their other releases generally have) but they're not announcing it yet so they can funnel people toward the more expensive limited edition. But maybe that's my cynicism talking.

Its definitely the reason they only have the "limited quantity" Hypergun Edition for sale right now.

not willing to spend almost $60 for just the game and that metal piece. the game on eshop only costs $15. i was expecting $30 the most for just the game. $30 on top of that is insane plus their ridiculous shipping charge.

There's an option on the listing page for no *Hypergun extras, so it is likely they will have a wider release.

If their preorder stock isn't sold out by the release date of October 27, there's always the chance that they do a promo for it. The most recent one that comes to mind is Crystal Crisis which they knocked $20 off for with a promo code, but that's been out for a while. Speaking of which, the only known "available" promo code is the one they give for signing up for the newsletter.

I hope to see this game go to Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart & Target. Binding of Isaac for Nintendo Switch did so Ikaruga might.

$75.28 with tax was my total for Ikaruga 😳🤯😱. Somehow i was tricked into thinking it was like limitedrungames where you have to order as soon as it goes on sale or risk missing out.

They also put their Switch version of Redout on sale recently for about $15 off, but I think that may have only been on sale for one day.

 

I'm going to pump the brakes on Ikaruga in hopes of a more reasonably priced retail version.  As much as I love the game, over $70 shipped is highway robbery.

 

Kind of makes me hate Nicalis more after continually holding their Vita releases hostage to the general public, the shit their CEO has done, and now being shady with not giving an answer either way whether Ikaruga will have a wide retail release.
