Steal Princess Locked Up Until May

By Spencer . April 2, 2009 . 11:43am

image Atlus pushed Steal Princess back another month rescheduling its release to May 19. Previously, Steal Princess and its blend of isometric puzzle platforming was slated for April 21. Before that the original release date was March 24. To make up for the delays Atlus is packaging a mini-poster with every launch copy of the game.


Looks like Steal Princess is going to be rarer than your usual already hard to get Atlus game too. Tim Pivnicy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing explains, “Beacuse Steal Princess will be available through fewer sales channels and in smaller quantities than other Atlus releases, finding the optimal launch conditions is critical to ensuring that this daring new release avoids getting lost in an already busy April.”


A tipster told us Gamestop canceled his/her pre-order a few weeks ago. It doesn’t look Steal Princess is in Gamestop’s database either. Amazon is still carrying the game, though.

    Interesting. I guess Atlus is going back to limited print runs for games they release…or at least for certain games now. My World My Way went out of print a month after release.

    I’m wondering if Tokyo Beat Down was also a limited print run. For some reason, I feel like it’s going to go out of print in a month like My World My Way.

    why Atlus WHY? I love the games you release but I can't buy them all at once. I'm really sad to hear that they are going back to releasing limited quantities :(
    I guess I'm going to have to make sure I pre-order Steel Princess at least….sigh.
