THE BUZZ: Now-rare DS RPG Radiant Historia will be getting a second printing soon, North American publisher Atlus USA announced.
EGM’s TAKE: I always meant to pick up Radiant Historia, but I just kept pushing it off to the back of my mind. And then, one day, I suddenly noticed it was out of print, and even used copies were at times fetching $60+.
Thus is the life of many an Atlus USA game—games that are in high demand, niche releases, and never over-printed.
So, how thankful I am that my cries of asking for a reprint—along with the cries of countless other DS owners out there who also missed out on picking up the game—have now been answered. The reprint of Radiant Historia will be hitting in late March via Amazon (and possible a few other shops)—but it won’t be brining the soundtrack CD that the original run of the game received with it.
That’s fine, though. We’re getting the game again, and at a price that won’t make our wallets cry. I can be happy with that.
