New Theathrythm's box, 3DS XL bundle preorder ⊟

Not a bad cover for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call! It’s the same design as what’s on the special edition 3DSL XL for Japan, except with more cover. That hardware bundle, by the way, is now available to preorder from Play-Asia for $413.99. Importing a system is really expensive! Still, I know some of you were considering taking the plunge with this kit.

Preorder Crying’s “Get Olde” tape ⊟
This is like one of the few times I’m actually happy to have an old’n busted car with a tape deck! You can grab one of these (initial run of 100 cassettes) for $5, plus $3 s/h. Orders will begin shipping out some time next week. The full 7-track digital EP is still available to download with pay-what-you-want pricing at Bandcamp. How many times do I have to tell you that the album is so good?
And if you missed the deadline to submit your own sing-a-long clip for Crying’s upcoming “ES” music video, you can still send something in! It turns out that was a fake deadline, and they don’t care when you submit your video.

Ace Attorney 123's boxart, charms tho ⊟

When people in Japan preorder Ace Attorney 123: Wright Selection from the E-Capcom shop, they’ll not only get the standard bonuses (desktop wallpaper and a remixed music track), they will receive a cute 7cm charm randomly selected from a set of three.

Bravely Default CE sets back in stock ⊟
Yes, yet another Bravely Default post. I know a lot of you hoped to preorder the collector’s edition set, though, and it’s gone out of stock quick at Amazon twice already, so I wanted to make sure I alerted you as soon as possible!
[Update: Ugh, that went out of stock in like 10 minutes. This is crazy.]
It’s $50 for the set (includes box, game, art book, soundtrack CD, and 34 AR cards), with free shipping. That’s $5 cheaper than GameStop — Best Buy has the same $50 price and the set in stock, too. The art above comes from Dashi.

Bravely Default CE preorders back up ⊟

I guess this Collector’s Edition set is going to be in limited supply? Amazon (which has the box for $50, five bucks cheaper than GameStop’s price) stopped taking preorders for this not too long ago, which must have made some regret they didn’t reserve the RPG earlier. It’s now accepting preorders again, but who knows how long they will be up this time. That’s pretty nuts, considering its release is still five weeks away!

Credit too Yohan Sacre for the illustration above.

[Update: Preorders no longer available. :o( That was quick.]

Bravely Default 3DS XL cases, preorders open ⊟

I was checking to see if Amazon had Bravely Default available to preorder yet, and indeed the site has finally added the 3DS JRPG. You can reserve the Collector’s Edition (includes the game, an art book, a soundtrack CD, and 34 AR cards) now too for $49.99, which is actually $5 cheaper than what GameStop is asking for.

While rummaging the site for those links, I also spotted these neat 3DS XL cases, which are available for $11 before third-party shipping. AFter reading Simon Parkin’s review for Bravely Default, I really can’t wait until this comes out here (February 7)!

Free Pac-Man hat with Ghostly Adventures ⊟
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures hasn’t exactly been on my radar – even though I pre-ordered it… but Namco continues to sweeten the deal for the 3DS/PS3/Xbox/Wii U platformer.
Right now, if you order the game through Namco’s store, you get a free Pac-Man plush hat thing (above). It’s a $30 value! Well, it sells for $30, but I personally value plush Pac-Man heads much more highly than that.

Aonuma and Iwata discover some treasure ⊟

These GIFs come from a Vine of the two fellows — The Legend of Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma and Nintendo president Satoru Iwata — showing off a preorder bonus for A Link Between Worlds at UK GAME shops. You can’t hear it in the images of course (original GIF is from Solidsnakex), but the box plays the treasure jingle when you open it!

Shin Megami Tensei IV book sample

Here’s some art from the “Strategy & Design Book” that comes with every pre-ordered copy of Shin Megami Tensei IV. I really want to play both this and Project X Zone, but it is really really really not a good time for long-ass games right now. 

But hey, if you’re not obsessed with Animal Crossing and/or covered in babies 24/7, go ahead and pre-order! And look through the preview of the bundled book!

Where we’re going, we don’t need official boxart
Because something like this works just fine. Don’t forget that preorders are now open at Amazon for the 3DS sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past!
And don’t forget about these still active deals either:
Fire Emblem: Awakening - $29.99 (backordered, sidebar link)
Super Mario 3D Land - $29.99
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - $29.99 (backordered, sidebar link)

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate - $24.99 (backordered, sidebar link)
Kid Icarus: Uprising is also $31.99, which is a decent deal for a great game. Don’t forget that it comes with a banana stand.

Shin Megami Tensei IV's Amazon pre-order outfit
All right, I typically don’t get down with retailer-exclusive pre-order bonuses, but this is way too good. 

"In addition to the Limited Edition Box Set, capture the spirit of the Amazon package with its cardboard color, signature smile logo, and bar code is this imaginative upper body armor for the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado’s Samurai.”

So if you pre-order, you get the limited edition box set, and this limited edition box jacket. If you’re concerned about silly costumes violating the immersion or whatever, let me just say NEO FEATHERMAN.
