Square Enix March Madness Sales Drops Thief and Lightning Returns to 50%

Unless it is reliving its brief history in basketball with Mario Hoops 3 on 3, I have no idea why  Square Enix is celebrating March Madness. That’s ok, because even though I don’t understand the motivation behind the sale, I was still able to save 50 percent on all my purchases.

Between now and March 30, almost every still in stock title on the official Square Enix store has seen its price slashed based on a stacking system. Buying one game will save you 20 percent, two games will save you 30 percent, and three games will save you 50 percent.

Square Enix’s March Madness sale extends to both its recent expansions into the Western market, like Tomb Raider and Thief,  and its classic Japanese library. In fact, Square Enix takes the sale as far back as Chrono Cross, a PlayStation One game long since available in digital format through the PlayStation Store. However, it unsurprisingly remains out of stock.

Anybody planning on a quick fix of Square Enix through the March Madness sale? I snagged up Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and for the sake of me being a masochistic completist, I also picked up Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. My fanboyism has once again blocked my better judgement.
