BEEP have opened pre-orders including a limited edition with a printed motherboard similar to Strania and a "life size panel", presumably a huge character POP?

Does Beep usually list things before direct sales?

The fact you know suggests they’re coming to Europe too. Time for another “I’m not a paedo, honest”. :palm:

Is this the Game Center artwork you hoped for Jan?

BEEP and a couple of other stores handle direct sales to the Japanese public. I’m sure preorders will be up on the Exa website soon. Release date still TBA.

Most expensive game yet. SGD$2,699, ~1700 euros.

Also,

Your exA-Arcadia system must be Version 1.3 or above to play this game. Existing customers can contact support for a free upgrade.

Tempting. Too bad I'm broke.

I'd quite like to be able to buy some of the posters - Psyvariar Delta in particular. Be nice if they were available as fan service

"Now equipped with 4K visuals"

So, one needs a 4K screen to get the best visuals?

For menus. The game assets are still 640 x 480, same as the 360 port. It will look best on a CRT.

I did wonder a while back if they might invent a new price tier for this one :roll: I really think there should just be a fixed price for kits...even prior to this release, it never really sat right having things like A&B costing 430 SGD more than the 'base' prices. Another 570 SGD on top of even A&B (for a total of 1000 over base) feels more than slightly opportunistic to me.

Indeed but they're only going to sell a few hundred kits. If we want to see new CAVE IP they're going to need a good return otherwise it'll just be more ports, if anything.

I guess it does make sense when you frame it like that - I just really don't like it as a strategy. It makes me think if we do ever end up with a new Cave IP - and I'm personally a bit skeptical that'll ever happen, irrespective of sales - they'd just add another 1000 SGD on to the SDOJ price.

I'm sure most won't care, though. I've been flirting with getting an exA - but the price of this (and the prospect of other killer apps/Cave ports at this price) is making me wonder...

They might want to reveal the other 2 modes now they're expecting people to stump up £1700 on a re-release of an 8 year old game.

I believe they're unlocks/surprises in typical CAVE fashion (like the Mushihimesama games) ;)

I actually think A&B is quite keenly priced. It's not even available to the public in Japan and is considerably more expensive through distributors. It's the system's killer app and it's the same price as Kung Fu.

I'm guessing Score Attack and Arrange (BEEP says there are a choice of four cutouts).

:pointup: This. I imagine CAVE won't be willing to produce anything new without a success on their hands.

Bear in mind companies like Capcom, Taito and Namco aren't even interested in releasing anything unless there's a huge cost/markup.
