I'm surprised. I figured this would be a 59.99 game like its predecessor. Maybe I'll pick it up, if it's this cheap. I was going to hold off for a price drop if it was the regular full-price, but maybe I'll just get it at launch now.

Nope. No Limited Edition, so it's a budget title (the predecessor's standard edition went for a slight budget price of $50 brand new, so this one is le bargain).

I think this has something to do with lots of fans saying there wasn't enough new content to justify a full price point. The above point is probably the most significant one, though.

usually these types of games are not ever full price, just kind of like an expansion rather than a full sequel. Just look at street fighter 4. Sf4 was 60 and SSF4 was 40 even though it had more content. This pattern has been around for a while, just look at askys previous titles, all the same

Japan has a limited edition.
I believe it has a Noel Nendoroid figure along with an artbook.
Pretty pricey though, runs around 100~USD.

Just to add to the conversation =)

The other $20 is starting to show up. Makoto download content has been announced, with two other characters to follow. So much for a budget title :P

it's kinda annoying that they announced DLC even before the game is out, eh?

Hell I am already out at least $60 on ssf4 after all the damn outfit packs. DLC is their bread and butter.

As others have said, this is more of an expansion than a full sequel. Therefore, they are releasing at the lower price point and making up the difference with DLC. If this marketing system continues to be successful for fighting games, I see even proper sequels coming out at $40 with DLC already in the pipe. People can complain about that, but would you rather pay $60 and then pay more for DLC? I would think not.

For this price, it's a great deal. I own the JP version and I can assure you it's worth it.They made quite alot more changes than you might think. Balance changes, whole new story mode, challenge, trail mode, tutorial mode, legion mode, training room or fight CPU while waiting for ranked match mode, 3 new characters + 3 more DLC ones on the way. Can't wait for NA release to buy again! just for the story, loved the story of the first one and to continue following it :).

Can't wait for this, $40 is more than worth it. They rebalanced everyone so now Rachel, Arakune and Nu aren't so flippin I can go back to winning with Hakumen like I did until everyone figured out the cheap loops those characters had. I hope they got rid of Carl's throw loop too, that is really irritating to get stuck in...though it is truly impressive to see someone pull it off. More than anything I'm glad that Valkenhayn is going to be playable, just guessing that he will play like Slayer from Guilty Gear...just a hunch...GIVE US JUBEI PLEASE!!!

and yeah, the story is great, glad to see it continue.
