Atlus Cuts Their Price For The Testament Of Sherlock Holmes To $40

Posted on September 2, 2012 AT 12:45pm

Although The Testament of Sherlock Holmes isn’t even due on store shelves until later this month, Atlus is hedging their bets on the game with a price cut. Rather than its initial $50 tag, the upcoming title is now just 40 bones.

For perspective, here’s what coming out on store shelves at roughly the same time:

  • Dead or Alive 5 — September 25
  • FIFA 13 — September 25
  • LittleBigPlanet (PS Vita) — September 25
  • World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria — September 25
  • Marvel vs. Capcom Origins — September 26
  • Resident Evil 6 — October 2
  • NBA 2K13 — October 5
  • Pokemon Black 2/White 2 — October 7
  • Dishonored — October 9
  • Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 — October 9
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown — October 9

All those dates are North American releases, but the European schedule is roughly similar, give or take a few days.

Considering the theme of the game, it’s not unreasonable to suspect that The Testament of Sherlock Holmes just might sell a bit better in the Europe than everywhere else. After all, Sherlock is the hot new (old) fad right now.
