    Just before Valentine’s Day.
    I’m gonna be spending that day with this game alright.

    Kinda strange that the XBLA version costs $10 (or wherever price in other countries), but hey, at least they’re doing both digital/retail, and on a portable (for a decent price), hope it comes around stateside too (if possible).

      That’s because the original XBLA version costs 1260 yen in Japan as well, this’d probably be $10 here. This version also includes a new free character, doesn’t it?

      • NeoStrayCat

        Well, I hope so if they add this new char., but having Kurisu behind a paywall again is rather dull, but hey, at least the retail version will have her as a DL code. (Hope the retail release doesn’t cost too much though.)

          ? The retail price is 5000yen ‘MSRP’, 4500 from HMV. The game + Makise is something like 1900 yen, but comparing it to the US release you’d be paying $30 extra for presumably a physical copy (hopefully not just a code), a book, a soundtrack and an exclusive costume.

          If they didn’t wall off Kurisu again the price of the base game would increase, they supposedly cut her out to drop the game from $15 to $10.

      Well, it was 15 if you counted the DLC.

  • benhofb

    I am really really hoping that this makes it stateside as maybe a digital download. I want to play as Kurisu, damnit!

  • Kayseur

    Well, if the retail version goes at full price, I’ll have a hard choice choosing between the two. The price difference is quite big. At least there’s still time to decide.

    Girls, you’re looking at the wrong direction.
    The exit is —-> that way.

    Need western release.

  • Aristides

    If this game already made it to the west on 360 the developers should release it on Vita, the localization is already done after all.
