The Reminiscence Of Haruhi Suzumiya Coming In March, Yuki’s Box Has Bonus 3D Posters

Namco Bandai set March 24 as the release date for the PSP/PS3 game The Reminiscence Of Haruhi Suzumiya. Wait, PlayStation 3 and PSP? Yes, aside from sharper graphics and more voice acting lines on PS3, it’s the same game. It’s possible to swap save data between devices so you can start The Reminiscence Of Haruhi Suzumiya on the train and continue your game at home.


Since this is a Haruhi game you know there has to be a limited edition. The Reminiscence Of Haruhi Suzumiya Yuki Nagato’s Lost Property Box includes a movie with CG contents (PSP owners get a separate UMD video), a binder with three clear posters, a handful of 3D posters with red and blue glasses, plus the game for PS3 or PSP wrapped in a special box.


The limited edition costs 11,529 yen for PlayStation 3 ($140) or 10,479 yen ($127) for PSP. A standalone game retails for 7,329 yen ($89) on PS3, 6,279 yen if you get the PSP version ($76).

  • I won’t even question the utility of a poster that requires extra equipment just to view properly.

    Damn it, I wish the exchange rate wasn’t so awful these days but I can probably pass on posters. If they had thown in some sort of exclusive figma they would have had me for sure. Definitely picking up the regular edition though .

    The dubious quality of this game, value of the limited edition, and absurd price point aside, there is one thing that sort of puzzles me about the Haruhi games…’The Haruhi property is freakishly huge in America. Maybe not quite like Naruto or Bleach, but pretty damned close. Why hasn’t a single game been localized yet? Is Bamco *really* THAT retarded?

    I’ve seen far worse games get the localization treatment, just because they were tied to a popular franchise. (Looking at you, Yugayoh…)

      It’s really not that huge. The DVDs had mediocre sales at best, and thanks to Endless 8, there are even fewer fans willing to pay for anything.

      • MemeticRichard

        I don’t know what numbers you’re pulling out, but it’s Bandai’s second largest cashcow.

        • SolidusSnake

          It’s not the first time I’ve heard that American DVD sales of Haruhi underperformed. Yeah, it’s popular, but just because every anime fan in america has seen the show fansubbed doesn’t mean it makes money.

          Regardless, unless someone can come up with actual figures it will remain a subject for hearsay and conjecture.

          It’s popular, but I doubt it’s what it once was. Probably due in part to K-On grabbing the spotlight, and also due to the lack of new material (10th novel is taking forever to come out, EE is better not mentioned… at least the movie did ok).

      • MQAB

        the endless 8…. jesus christ

    • superdry

      The one’s Bamco could bring out are text heavy adventure games (PS2 and PSP games) that probably won’t sell enough to recoup localization costs…that and SCEA doesn’t like those type of games anyway.

      Kadokawa published one for the Wii and SEGA holds the rights to the other games (Wii an DS).

  • why cant they just make the next darned season T_T

    • nyoron

      KyoAni tends to work on one thing at a time, and they’re currently working on the K-On movie. They’ve also committed to a Nichijou TV series that should come out sometime in the near future.

      Even though the novels have been stalled for a while there’s enough material for at least one more season. Who knows if they’ll do more though, they never came back to Full Metal Panic. If there’s no more anime so be it, I just want the next book to come out finally.

      • omg thanks for reminding me of full metal panic T_T, why cant they make the next darnet season, FMP is one of the not so many animes ive brought in my visits to the US, anime prices are pretty high
