    There goes my problem with SMTIV having paid DLC, I’m sure 30$ will cover it.

  • Xanedis

    The bad thing is that it isn’t for Europeans 🙁

    • James Best

      Didn’t Europe get that deal where they got a free 3DS game after buying three other 3DS games? I think we’re even now.

    • smacd

      Not to mention that we had to fight for 3 games Nintendo gave them a year before. *ahem*

      I can’t really take Europeans complaining seriously anymore, now that NoE is taking much better care of them than NoA does for us these days.

    • Xanedis

      Unfortunately, none those games was really worth it :/. This, on the other hand, is basically free money…

    • James Best

      I wouldn’t say that. They had Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Animal Crossing, Donkey Kong Country Returns, didn’t they? Nothing wrong with that list that I can see.

    • Xanedis

      That’s the thing with subjectivity, other people deny there is such a thing…

  • James Best

    What a sweet deal! Now I’m really considering getting this game.

  • smacd

    I have less reason to complain about the $50 pricetag on SMT4 now. Although I still think they need to drop the digital price, especially since the digital version isn’t getting all the goodies like the physical game has.
