    That's better than a $40 launch price.

    Just tried the code, says it is expired. :( Was going to pre-order it for that price.

    I preordered mine from Amazon, I think it was $34 or something like that so it wasn't too bad.

    $12 off a new (upcoming? Idk if it's released yet) 3DS game that normally retails for $40 isn't cheap to you? That's over 25% off.

    Anyway at the OP, thanks for the heads up. This might actually convince me to buy the game.

    You realize the game only costs $35 on Amazon, right? I mean, saving $7 is nice and all, but most people aren't going to worry about it too much.

    That's a silly comparison. Just because one discounted price isn't that much cheaper than another discounted price doesn't disqualify it as being pretty darn cheaper than the full price.

    If you want to buy it from Amazon just because "it's only $7," then more power to you.

    I'm saying the game is only worth $35 anywhere now. Yay price cuts! Now, don't get me wrong, 20% off is nice and all, but it's nothing to go crazy over either when you're talking a $35 price tag to begin with. Plus, if someone happens to be like me and doesn't get paid at the most opportune of times (seriously, middle of the month is when no deals are happening), that $7 probably won't be worth trying to scrounge together the cash at a time where it probably isn't there to be spent.

    Regardless, this deal has been over for a few days now if the post a few up is true (they mentioned the code as being invalid when they tried to use it), so that $7 is ultimately irrelevant anyways. I'll just be happy that I'm saving the $5 courtesy of the developer.

    The game should only be 30 bucks tops anyways. Most of the work was already done for them, they just had to do a simple port and add a few extra things. Not really worth the 40 dollar price tag. I'll skip until I find it cheap.

    Oh I see. My apologies, I thought you were saying that it was on sale $35 at amazon only, and still $40 elsewhere.
