    • Rock Raiyu

      They do.

      $12 off coupon doesn’t work on it though =(

      • VisualData

        I talked to the Newegg rep until I was blue and then finally agreed to refund $12 to my account after the item has shipped as a “one-time only thing” 聽To me its like $20 for additional stuff if I could have already gotten the standard version 10 dollars cheaper. But still pretty sweet deal.

    Day 1 purchase.
    Sorry for the non Vita owners. They will miss out on a delicious game despite the 99.9997% likelyhood that the US gaming media will crap all over this game in reviews.

    Glad I’m a free thinker who is not dependant on other peoples validation on my entertainment purchase decisions.

    Very nice! I’ve been waiting to put my Vita to work with this game since BEFORE the Vita was even out! I’m sooo happy that XSEED localized it. I was very excited to play it yesterday like a certain placeholder had it’s release, or even 9-11 like Gamestop has it held.

    But if an October release is in the cards, at least I’ll be able to play it this year, and 10 bucks more for the collector’s edition is awesome!

    Great news!

  • Very nice! Me want!!!

    It’s starting to look like I might have to go on some kind of hunger strike this聽October. Why? I’m going to spend all of my cash on video games, that’s why. (Not kidding… lol)

  • chronicus_pr1me

    Damn, 10 bucks more for all that content, Im in.聽

    Vita owners hit me up on PSN chronicus_pr1me聽

  • Anyone know what the cards do? are the just for “show” (Like pokemon cards collections) or do they somehow give you the monsters in the game…Im not sure how it works, only played the Jpn Demo and…. couldnt see if there was any type or…. “Monster Battle”-type modes….
    Getting it nonetheless, going to go pre-order in the morning…$50 for a launch game is completely new for me, used to the ol’ $60-70 console game prices =P
