Nab some fantastic RPGs before the 3DS eShop boards the doors
Nintendo eShop purchases for both the 3DS and Wii U are set to close up next spring. So today’s Sega sale, which features some great 3DS games, is a good time to fill out your library.
Sega and Atlus games are on sale on the eShop, from now until April 17 at 11:59 p.m. PT. The Sega Spring Sale has plenty of good Switch deals, including a bunch of the Sega Ages releases and a 50% off deal on Persona 5 Strikers. Plus, the Valkyria Chronicles Remastered + Valkyria Chronicles 4 dual pack is only $28—a great deal for tactical RPG fans.
But let me turn your attention to somewhere further down the page: the Nintendo 3DS part of the sale. Several excellent Atlus RPGs are on sale, and this will probably be one of the best shots at getting these games in your library for a good price before the 3DS eShop closes.
The Shin Megami Tensei series, including SMT IV and both Devil Survivor and its sequel are on sale for $8 a pop. Some Etrian Odyssey games and Persona Q are also on sale, for a similarly low price. Also, it wasn’t listed on the sale page, but Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology is also on sale for $10. (Thanks for the spot, Wario64.)
These are some stellar deals on some spectacular RPGs. The Devil Survivor series is a favorite of mine in particular, mixing Shin Megami Tensei ideas with tactics and social sims to make for a really fun, replayable duology. Plus, Etrian Odyssey and Radiant Historia are solid games worth grabbing.
I’ve already loaded up my cart with a bunch of games I’ll want to maintain access to in the years ahead. If you’re keen on keeping your Nintendo 3DS around for years, this is a good time to load up.
