    Last year was such a good 3DS year.

    • Satori Satya

      Oh, my back!(log)

      I’m still trying to deal with that.

    • kylehyde

      The 2013DS was easily of my one of my favorite years, not only as a gamer, but in many things of my life.

  • Rinne111

    while in Europe when it releases it will be overpriced

    • Armane

      Don’t worry, it’ll be on sale again in the US when it releases in Europe. $25 compared with Europe’s $68 or whatever they wind up charging.

      • MaidKillua

        No, obviously they’ll mark the occasion by giving the game away for free for the day to Americans while charging us a full £40 retail price for it

        • MillerKun

          Shouldn’t you just email them to adjust the price or sent a tweet out? btw £23.53 for the game the right pricing for a new copy of SMT4?

    • MaidKillua

      The solution is to not buy it and show Atlus that they need to make an effort with EU releases instead of screwing us all the time and getting away with it

      • Satori Satya

        Well if that is not going to justify not giving a crap about EU in ATLUS’ eyes, I dunno what would.

        But maybe they’ll learn a ‘lesson’.

        • All Fiction

          They already don’t give a crap about EU, it’s not like it was gonna change.

          Godamn I never pirated any of my consoles, even the friggin DS when I could just have bought any linker for dirt cheap, because I believed in Nintendo and publishers; but this situation is a goddamn disrespect to European customers who have been paying far more than American for games, and the cost of a Gateway actually starts to appeal to me.
          Seriously, note to myself: never buy a region locked device again.

          • Satori Satya

            Supporting piracy. That will teach them.

            I can see the EU market becoming more relevant by the minute.

            If only there was another way to come in contact with ATLUS, Nintendo or to put pressure on them like happened with Tomodachi Life….

            Social media, how does it work?

          • All Fiction

            Well sorry, I gave up, too bad right ? I can act all ironic too if you want, it’s a great way to make the debate go forward right ?

            And don’t start about using social media, every time someone complain to Atlus, and a LOT of people complain, either comments are deleted, or the American Atlus defense force comes to say how European don’t deserve games etc…
            Nothing happened with Tomodachi Life by the way, it’s like you don’t believe in your own arguments…

            About pirating, I remember Gabe Newell saying that when the service provided by the pirate is better than the official, ther is a huge problem. In that case, pirating require getting an old 3DS model and a high priced linker, put it’s still better than the official way to get Rune Factory 4 and SMT4, because there is like, you know, none.

          • Ash_Riot

            Just buy Persona Q instead and show Atlus USA we prefer physical releases that are quickly released soon after the NA release.

          • MaidKillua

            This is the most productive thing I’ve heard here so far. And the fact that it’s being published by NIS in Europe helps. NIS are always welcome to my money since most of their own games are great and they also got us P4G on time and eventually brought over Memories of Celceta. And of course it’d show Atlus that SMT/ Persona definitely does have an audience here if their business practices and general treatment of us isn’t trashy. Though i’m sure we were all going to buy PQ anyway, what we REALLY need is for it to greatly outsell SMT4 in Europe

          • Ash_Riot

            It should do, since let’s face it, Persona is more popular anyway.

            I wonder what the sales for Soul Hackers in Europe was like? A spin-off SMT on 3DS from NIS America that was a physical release and quickly released.

          • MaidKillua

            I never got round to picking that up because I’ve been stuck on Devil Survivor for months. I’m stubborn and basically refuse to grind in any game unless it becomes completely necessary, and it has honestly made this the hardest game I’ve ever played in my life. Is Soul Hackers good?

          • Ash_Riot

            It’s good if you like the 90s era of games. The game just drips 90s. It’s a game that made me nostalgic despite never having played it before. If you’re okay with first person dungeon crawling, absolutely, it’s great. The story is a bit messy, but the characters are rather charming and remind me of early Persona games characters. The battle system is really fast paced too, so you can auto battle through enemies in no time.

          • Satori Satya

            Nothing happened with Tomodachi Life? au contraire quite a LOT happened as a result. That was a movement that Nintendo isn’t going to forget any time soon. We shall see more tangible results when the sequel comes out.

            BELIEVE!

            In regards to you embracing piracy…

          • Zoozbuh

            People need to tell them to make the digital-only price CHEAPER so that annoyed Atlus fans will actually buy the bloody game, after being messed around so long. No point moaning about it here though, I guess.

        • MaidKillua

          They know there’s demand for it here, if it didn’t sell then hopefully they wouldn’t be so inept as to not realise that it’s because we’re sick of being treated like trash

      • landlock

        Honestly then they just won’t bother at all in the future and they’ll just be like well the sales were crap. Don’t feel they really care about EU at all.

      • PreyMantis

        Wouldn’t that just backfire? I mean, if people boycott the game, wouldn’t that make Atlus believe more that their games just don’t sell well in Europe? The low sales in the region would lead to Atlus justifying that Europe don’t care about their games; thus, leading for less games or no games from them in Europe. There’s no point for them localizing the games at all in the region if their games don’t sell there.

  • Eder García

    man!!! and i just ordered a US eShop card for my WiiU… and my 3DS region is different… bad luck is bad

  • Smooosh

    Maybe you guys should put up an article whenever it ISN’T on sale!

    *badumm tsssh*

    • Armane

      Like in Europe?

      • Smooosh

        Yeah yeah, we get it…

        • Satori Satya

          He got you there.

        • Armane

          It was a joke. You know, like Atlus.

  • Fub Frank
    • Satori Satya

      Just make sure you check that they don’t sell you a copy of the game that the employees took home every weekday.

    • cbellevie

      Also on Amazon.

    • Zoozbuh

      Goddamn. Devil Survivor Overclocked is still like £30 over here, whether you buy it digital or from a shop. And like an idiot, I bought it anyway. Atlus/Ghostlight really need to discount these games more in Europe, maybe they would get a bigger audience if they did…
      (Edit: £30 is like… around $50 or so, just FYI.)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    gooo buy it its so good *got it day one (●ↀωↀ●)✧

  • RagingTiger44

    This game is ALWAYS on sale. But when I finally have money it won’t be on sale…

    • JoshuaMariguez197

      I feel your pain man

  • Mr_SP

    Is there a site that tells me what’s on sale in Europe? (Or better yet, Australia?) Because it’s digital, and I have a backlog, I’d rather wait until it’s on sale, but I don’t pay much attention to Nintendo stuff, so I don’t know where to look, or if there’s an RSS feed, or anything.

    • All Fiction

      Nintendo life usually has a weekly news about this

    • Astralwyrm

      I’ve had a 3DS for atleast half a year now and here in europe there is never any games like this on sale that i can remember. Seems like here in the EU we get nothing but the bargain bin titles no one wants. I think the best games i’ve seen were probably resident evil and street fighter x tekken, both series i have no interest in however.

      • Zoozbuh

        Nintendo Life and ONM (the Official Nintendo Magazine website) have a weekly rundown of new releases and what is on sale. So you might want to keep those two bookmarked. That being said, we barely EVER get sales on RPGs or any niche games like this one. There’s a sale on a One Piece game at the moment, but I’m not really a fan.

  • JMaster3000

    I’m so happy that i sold my European 3DS XL :)

  • fairysun

    Please have discounted Fire Emblem: Awakening on eShop.

    • http://keiserone.tumblr.com/ KeiserOne

      with the DLC that goes along with it.

  • persona_yuji

    Q3…Q3…Q3… Well, I can say that atleast I am PUMPED to see the game coming here, even if digital only.

  • idrawrobots

    My game of the year for 2013. If you haven’t yet, please play this!

  • Zoozbuh

    Christ, how many times have they discounted this in the US? If any American hasn’t picked it up by now, then I’m not sure what’s wrong with them. Eagerly awaiting the EU release now, despite it being digital-only! Recently bought Devil Survivor Overclocked on eShop and the new easy mode/voice acting is REALLY making it worth the purchase :)

    • Ric Vazquez

      I haven’t played it since beating the original on the DS but just because of this comment I’m going to be picking u Overclocked real soon :)

  • ShafakCool

    Lol, I bought it one month ago and got stuck at Medusa fight. Haven’t played it after five attempts to kill her. So, what I’m trying to say is that this game is hard. Don’t bother picking it up if you are a whiner and rage quiter like myself :D

  • Zechs

    That link goes to Mario Kart 8? :o

  • Haganeren

    Yeah, Digital Only…

  • Armane

    It’s a spam bot. It takes the text from the article and puts in a link to somewhere probably infested with malware.

  • Zechs

    I dunno, it’s just Amazon. :P

  • Armane

    Exactly. :P

  • landlock

    Better then nothing, I’m hoping it’ll be around £24.99 or i’ll be waiting for a sale like with Drakengard 3 (£39.99 LOL)

  • Haganeren

    Oh, i will take nothing but it’s personal…

  • Zoozbuh

    Loool if the recent Atlus digital trend is anything to go by, it will be something stupid like £31 or £35 (which is still way too expensive in my opinion.) To be honest they should at the LEAST make it £20 for messing Europeans around for so long and delaying the release so much. 20 isn’t even that cheap, Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies got the same “apology” price, and it sold great as a result.

  • landlock

    Well as a gamer there’s no way I can not get it at some point. That’s just not an option when it’s available.

  • Haganeren

    As a retro gamer, i know there will be plenty of option to play it as time advance anyway.
