Atlus Holiday Sale has Great Savings on Nintendo 3DS

Shin Megami Tensei IV

Is there a better third party developer for the Nintendo 3DS than Atlus? I didn’t think so. Not only does it offer the best non-Nintendo games on the platform, but it also discounts its games more often than the competition. The holiday season is coming to a close, and all of its games are currently knocked down to rock bottom prices.

Here are the list of games.

  • Shin Megami Tensei IV – $29.99 (from $49.99)
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked – $19.99 (from $29.99)
  • Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers – $19.99 (from $29.99)
  • Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl – $29.99 (from $39.99)
  • Etrian Odyssey IV – $19.99 (from $29.99)
  • Code of Princess – $19.99 (from $29.99)

I picked up Code of Princess because I am a fan of the SEGA Saturn classic Guardian Heroes, the first game the designers worked on. I couldn’t say no to yet another discount. I haven’t played it yet, but it looks like a lot of fun.

I also snagged Etrian Odyssey IV, one of my absolute favorite games from 2013. I already own and beat the physical version, but I am converting my entire collection into digital form, so is there a better time to do that than a sale? The game is worth it anyway.

All of the other games are an easy recommendation, but Shin Megami Tensei IV is the obvious standout. I’m playing through it now, after buying it during an earlier sale, and it is one of the most complete and fun JRPGs in recent memory, and another one of the best games from 2013.

If you love Japanese games but have somehow missed out on Atlus so far in your gaming career, you need to own a Nintendo 3DS to check out these games. You’ll also find discounts on a handful of indie titles, too. The sale was originally intended to end of Jan. 2, but thanks to the eShop traffic issues, it has been extended to Jan. 6.

Just enough time for me to ponder over picking up Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked and Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers. Should I or shouldn’t I?
