Rayman Origins Will Cost 1/2 The Price Of A Game When It Launches In Japan


raymanoriginsUbisoft announced they will bring Rayman Origins to Japan, but that’s not what’s interesting. When Rayman Origins comes out on April 12 it will retail for just 2,500 yen ($32). The price is the same for all three platforms: PS3, 3DS, and Vita.


That’s really cheap.


For comparison’s sake Soulcalibur V for PS3 is 8,380 yen ($110) and a Greatest Hits copy of Demon’s Souls is still 3,800 yen ($50). Resident Evil Revelations costs 5,990 yen ($79) and Mario Kart 7 is a bit cheaper at 4,800 yen ($63). PlayStation Vita titles like Gravity Daze and Tales of Innocence R are 5,980 yen ($79).


Rayman Origins might set a record for budget launch pricing in Japan.
