As of September 15, this game is a ridiculous $50! I thought 3DS games were supposed to be forty bucks, at the most. This isn't even a new game, it's a port of an older DS game, with only a few new features. I imagine an expansion "8th day" level, new voice acting, and a very paltry addition of 3D MIGHT be worth a $30-$40 price tag, but this? What gives?

I never played the original, I have a new 3DS, and was considering getting this. I've heard many good things about the Shin Megami Tensei series, and FFTactics RPG strategy games intrigue me. This one looks like it has elements of Pokemon in it, even.

It was $40, but Amazon stopped carrying the game, and for whatever reason, independent sellers pushed the price way up. I've been waiting for Amazon to restock for about a week now, but I think I'm just going to head in to Target or, as a last resort, Gamestop tomorrow and purchase it for the actual price of $40.

That's too bad. I may have to do the same. I won't be able to get it until the next month, so maybe it'll be back by then anyway.

Amazon dropped the ball on this one.

The issue is, the game had a very small print run that ran out too fast. There are rumors about a new print run that'll be out by October though, so I personally will just keep an eye on this one, since I refuse to pay $50-60 for the game to a reseller.

Phew, glad I didn't wait to pick this gem up. The print must have been very small, since it only took a week or two for the prices to go up near $60. These independent sellers are vultures.

I was at WalMart & Future Shop today & neither had this available .... thankfully, I happened across a local on line ad for this used & grabbed it for $20 .... the one save file had less than an hour of playtime. the guy said it was too hard. anyway, I'm 4+ hours in, & it's a pretty cool game. no 3D to speak of, as mentioned in many reviews .... but that does not detract from the game play ... I'd highly recommend the game for anyone into an epic RPG .... "you can be our messiah" . :-)

*just noticed it's listed as discontinued my the manufacturer* that was quick, came out less than a month ago .

I had to resort to eBay. My local Gamestop and Best Buy did not have it.

sorry says:
yeah I had to get mine off ebay as well.

Atlus will eventually reprint it.

I hope they indeed do have another print run. I would like to pick this up but not at the price some are selling the game.

It's already out of print? Wow.

Did Atlus hardly make any copies for its release? Or is it such an excellent game that it was popular enough to sell out so quickly? OR, is it because at the time it was released, there still wasn't a whole lot of 3DS games out there and this happened to be one of the very best on the system?

Atlus generally prints too few copies of their games, making them go out of stock quite soon. This is probably a record though.

It will get a reprint. They don't have any other games on the 3DS yet to my knowledge. With the way this sold out so fast, it would be foolish to not release more. No company wants to leave money on the table, especially a small one that really needs it.

It was available for purchase on 10/27 and on sale for $29.99 so Atlus has the ability to re-print this for sure.
Sadly I missed out on the sale.

Atlus really needs to start doing bigger print runs. I put it in my cart, was going to wait til I received some money on monday,now the game is gone again and I'm not paying $50+ for it, so they've pretty much lost my sale.

Try going to Gamespot or a similar game store website and check their irl stock of this game online. I did it and was able to pick it up for the regular price, though I did have to drive about 20 minutes both ways. They told me it was the only copy they ever got, too. There were multiple stores carrying it around too. You may have to drive a bit, but it's not like this game is just gone. There are plenty of copies floating around.

The price is normal again, now I wish I had a 3DS... Sorta.

Looks like a good reprint. They had over 1k in stock just a few days ago, and now over 1k in stock again. Thanks Atlus!

Hoping part two gets a 3ds version as well down the road.

Getting my copy tomorrow; I can't believe it had gone up to 90 bucks. But thankfully I got it for its actual price.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 30, 2011 7:55:40 PM PST
a bit off topic, but can you please tell me how you knew there were over 1,000 in stock? You can tell how many amazon has of a particular item in stock? That would be useful to know.

You go to your cart and edit the quantity you would like to add. So far looks like another reprint success from Atlus, as It was over 1k copies in stock on the 10th now down to under 100.
