Three semi-rare PS2 games get reprints

Reprints rock. Especially reprints of Atlus and NIS games that you missed out on during the initial run and are now selling for well above the MSRP. We told you about Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne getting the reprint treatment a few months ago, and now bring word of another title in the SMT line that is as well.

Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga is now available at Play-Asia for $44.90. Play-Asia has also let us know through their newsletter that their supply of Nocturne reprints have also been restocked, so feel free to nab one of those if you haven’t already.

The NIS camp is also reprinting one of its harder to find games, AR Tonelico: Melody of Elemia. They also have a reprint of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness available, but that’s not quite as exciting due to there already being several versions available and another one coming to the DS. While both of these are available at Play-Asia as well, their prices are marked up rather high. Pick em up at NIS distributor Rosenqueen instead.

I still kick myself over the time I let Digital Devil Saga slip through my fingers — I saw a new copy sitting on a GameStop shelf for $30 a little while after it originally came out, but didn’t do more than glance at the cover since I’d never heard of it before. I picked up Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex instead. … Anyway, at least now I can finally give the game a go.

Will you be picking any of these up?
