The lights are on
If you've been considering a purchase of Vanillaware's gorgeous hack-and-slash Dragon's Crown, you might want to head the store sometime in the next week. Atlus is putting both the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions on sale.
The PlayStation 3 version will be $39.99 and you'll be able to get it on Vita for $29.99. Both represent a $10 savings. The sale runs through October 15, 2013. Atlus has told us that the offer is only valid at participating retail locations, but we'll update if that gets extended to PSN. the offer is now live on PlayStation Network, and it includes the Dragon's Crown theme and voice pack.
Atlus has something for other platforms, too. Shin Megami Tensei IV on 3DS is currently on sale for $10 off. Additionally, Persona 4 Arena Ultimate edition on PSN will be on sale for $29.99.
Our TakeAtlus may have been acquired by Sega, but so far everything seems to be business as usual (just like we were told it would be). I'm starting to feel like it's ok to breathe that sigh of relief. Losing Atlus (or seeing a significant change in the publisher) would be a tragedy.
