Given this is Shin Megami game, its probably worth it. Still, I don't support this. The ego on these people to assume that they're game should be priced higher than most other 3DS game.

I questioned Uncharted for that on Vita as well. Not to mention Call of Duty Vita. Good god, charging $50 for a game that you could beat in an hour lol!

It seems excessive, but ATLUS seems to be pulling out all the stops for this one. It has a branching storyline instead of the linear storyline found in recent Persona games. It has over 400 demons to capture and fuse, while Persona 4 Golden had barely 100.

Plus, ATLUS typically throws in an art book, soundtrack, etc

SMT Strange Journey came out in 2010. Persona 4 came out on PS2 in 2008, I think. SMT: Devil Summoner 2 was 2009. So, it has been at least three years since a full-blown SMT game.

While I do agree with you.
I think their reasoning behind this is this is the 1st major SMT core title in a few years, The last one was Nocturne.
This is also gonna be fully voice acted.

Not saying this justifies the price gouge but I also see why they're doing it

Like say if SE released Kingdom hearts 3 on the 3DS for 50$ I can see where that's coming from *Don't murder me vita fans this is hypothetical...*

maybe they are using a different cartridge. Remember what happened to REvelations, but they were forced to sell it for 40 in the end.

It's the first mainline MegaTen game since Nocturne on the PS2 back in 2003. I've been waiting ten years for this! Knowing most Shin Megami Tensei games, it'll probably be worth it. Still a lot of folks probably won't see it that way and will probably won't get it till the price goes down which is understandable as most new 3DS games retail for $40.

I'm just so freaking happy that we're getting it so soon!

Considering I've put in over 100 hours into Nocturne and still haven't found everything (nearly have); I'm certain it'll be worth it.

It's going to be worth every cent. Atlus FTW!

I'm just pumped its coming stateside. Hopefully next they'll announce localization for UK.
