Japanese publisher, developer and distribution company Square Enix has discounted a batch of their games this week. Some items at the company’s shop are up to 80% off, including a heft amount of Final Fantasy titles. The sale is titled “Spooky Sale,” for no apparent reason, as the company barely has horror games in its cannon.
However, the sale is still a great way to grab factory sealed games from Square Enix’s back catalog. There are a handful of older Nintendo DS titles on sale, as well a few 3DS games. The stylish action-puzzle Nintendo DS game Exit is on sale for $10 new, as is the action-adventure game, The Legend of Kage 2, and the puzzle title Space Bust-a-Move.
Interestingly, Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut – a multi-platform released game many critics believed was best played on the Wii U, due to its second screen – is on sale for the Wii U at $19.99. Nintendo Switch owners can find Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame for $29.99, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Most importantly, Square Enix’ sale is offering players a chance to grab some handheld Final Fantasy goodness. Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is on sale for the Nintendo DS at $9.99. (A sequel to the game was being developed, but later became Bravely Default.) The lighthearted Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales is on sale for the DS at $9.99, while Final Fantasy spinoff title (kinda, right?), Kingdom Hearts Re:coded sits at $14.99. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates are $14.99 and $19.99, respectively. Rhythm Nintendo 3DS game Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is $14.99.
And if Final Fantasy isn’t your thing, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker is on sale for $14.99 for the Nintendo DS.
In addition to older Nintendo titles, there’s also a slew of remastered soundtracks, t-shirts and posters on sale, not to mention steep discounts for other platforms, including older PlayStation Greatest Hits games. Make sure to sign up for Square Enix’ reward program to earn points for future benefits if making a purchase. The sale ends Halloween night.
