Prelude to the fallen or whatever it's called was the only expensive one and it got a reprint, it might actually still be on the online store. The other two were available/cheap.

There's definitely some out there that hold value, but at this point I'm just going to take the risk and wait it out for sales. My only really "regret" recently would be the Danganronpa special edition.

And are Spike Chunsoft and NIS sister companies or something? I noticed Danganronpa and Crystar have games under both companies, and I'm sure there's more.

To my knowledge, Spike Chunsoft and NIS are developers. NIS America (nisa) is a publisher & localization company for multiple developers. The nisa storefront is an even wider spectrum as it carries products from outside publishers.

yup,  that's basically it.   Atlus wasn't publishing much just developing so partnered with NISA to publish some of their things in America.  Since they got bought by SEGA though that's no longer needed really.

Spike Chunsoft now publish their own games in the US.  In the past their games were published by NISA

The 2nd one comes bundled with the first game from what I remember and it's been on sale on the eshop under 5 before as that's when I bought it for what it's worth.
 
I just buy stuff sub 20 when its on sale and throw it into the backlog. I'll get to it eventually but rpgs can take longer to play than most games so it slower to clear them out of the backlog.


As long as you eventually play it then that is reasonable. I know that I have much more highly reviewed games in my backlog and would never get to play this

Mask of deception went out of print last year and started climbing up in price for ps4. Don't think vita ever got reprint for either one. Prelude I don't recall getting a reprint. Was that in the same batch as the other ones they did the email survey for like Ys 9, cold steel 3 and 4 and langrisser back in July?

No, prelude was excluded from the batch you mentioned.  But it was reprinted in the batch they put up on the nisa store near the end of last year.  The reason that Mask of Deception, and to a lesser extent Mask of Truth, have been climbing is that the licensing had expired.  The games have been pulled from psn for some time now, though are still available on steam.  Aside from that, physical ps4 copies are the only way to get it now.  Hopefully a new deal is struck of a collection on nsw or something.  But I wouldn't expect a reprint for Deception or Truth until that possibility happens.

Too bad as I probably would have bought prelude if I knew just to have a physical na copy.
Hope they do that bundle like you said so others can play them.

Very limited, only showed one in my zip code, it took me a few minutes to add to cart and push through, it shipped out today. You can add me to the list of archival reasons, since I know I won’t play it.

Doubt it's a restock. Almost certain to have been those folks who decided they'd never play it (or realized they were buying it for the wrong reasons) and canceled their orders.

I think it was possibly a restock. Especially since at one point the price went up by 4 or so bucks. They also matched the switch versions price to the PS4 19.99 surprisingly.

I bought 6 copies and I won’t be opening any of them. 2 will go on WhatNot for $40 each and 4 will go in cases and into the closet of doom.

Might have been nice to leave those for somebody else instead of being selfish.
