Something I've noticed over the past few months is games which didn't receive huge print runs on the 3DS tend to go for £45 or more preowned, despite costing a fraction of that when there wasn't much demand for them in the past:

  • Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX, which was £15 new a couple of years ago, is now around £45-50.
  • Etrian Odyssey V, Strange Journey Redux and Radiant Historia, all published by Deep Silver for Atlus, go for £45+ as well, despite launching this year.
  • Sega 3D Classics Collection now goes for £30-40 despite being around half that price after it launched.
  • Persona Q is £40+, a sold listing for the limited edition went for £140.
  • Devil Survivor 2 is now going for £40-45 despite being £30 last year (I grabbed a new copy then!)

    and so on...


Which leads me to think this - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jake-Hunter-Detective-Story-Nintendo/dp/B07K2993ZN - will end up rather expensive.

The game is already out as a digital-only eShop release, but Aksys Games has expressed a desire to release a boxed version in Europe at a later date. I can't see it getting many copies printed, so it could potentially be a rather desirable game to own in the future.

Are there any 3DS games you're planning to pick up that you want to play, which seem like they might go out of print soon? I noticed that the EU distributor for NIS America, Reef, has some stock left of games like Legend of Legacy and Etrian Odyssey IV. I reckon when that runs dry those games will become hard to find for collectors: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/The-Legend-of-Legacy-3DS-BRAND-NEW-SEALED-UK/222779329952?

Hah! My 3DS is broken, so not really. What was that late 3DS JRPG by (I think) NIS with the four completely different classes? I liked the look of that, it looks like the sort of game that might be limited.

Seems the norm Atlus, NIS etc why I know it's VITA, I may get Death Mark soon as I can as can only see it going up in price.

Are you thinking of the Switch game Labyrinth of Refrain? That was by NIS, and it's one of my favourite games this year! Or was it a 2.5D RPG like Radiant Historia?

Not LoR, I remember Ninty Life loving the game I chose and they were fairly severe on LoR. Might have been RH. Academic now!
