Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright 3DS reduced to £30 at Tesco Direct and £25 with £5 off £30 code

31
Found 27th Mar 2014
Couldn't find this cheaper than 30 then saw Tesco Direct have it reduced to 30 from 35 and also the 5 off 30 code works as making it 25 which I'm happy about as I'm buying it for my girlfriend so saved some money on it, she loves both and games is mega excited about this game with both them in it.

5 off 30 code is - TDX-YT3P

Looks like delivery only, said on or before Monday on my order, hopefully might come Saturday or Friday depending on how quick they dispatch and what delivery they use.

Thanks for sharing. Ordered.

"Sorry, we don't have enough 3DS Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright items in stock right now. This item (s) has been added to your save for later basket. You can try to purchase this item again by reducing its quantity."

Thanks OP, I was being nagged constantly for this!

Thanks OP, just (pre)ordered.

I can't believe this game was released in Japan 2 years ago as a budget title and now Level 5 have finally bothered to release it in the West, they're expecting people to pay full price for it.

Madness.

I don't know where you've pulled this nonsense from. The game wasn't a budget title at all. It actually cost more than all of Nintendo's 3ds games.

Possibly the fact that I was in Japan when the game was launched and my girlfriend bought it.

Also, games do not generally become cheaper with age in Japan like they do in the West and a quick check on Amazon will speak volumes:

You really should check the facts before you mouth off at people.

Your Amazon link shows Japan RRP as £35 (equivalent) - sounds like a non budget release price to me?? Also a higher/same RRP as the Layton games themselves..

The link you provided shows the RRP to be 5980 Yen, which is indeed expensive for a 3ds game in Japan

I thought this was only a digital purchase! I'm looking forward to playing this when I get round to finishing all the previous Phoenix Wright games. I'm only on Game 3...

That RRP is wrong. It didn't cost that when it first came out.

I have never seen it sell at that RRP in Japan and games are typically more expensive there than they are in the West anyway.

It is only in the Japanese language though so you would need at least a basic understanding of written Japanese to play it.

Its still comparative though - RRP is the same or more than the other Layton games. Also, it was the link that you chose to prove your point is what I really don't get!!!

Either that RRP is wrong or it's one of those ridiculous ones that you sometimes see for products on Amazon UK that have never come close to being on sale at that price in reality. This game was around 2000-2500 yen at launch in the games shops and convenience stores I saw it in.

I think you may just of been lucky enough to stumble on a store specific sale at the time. Retailers probably reduced the game on launch to shift as many copies / or get customers in store as both the Layton and Phoenix Wright series have seen declining sales despite the popularity of the DS titles. No doubt related to the influx of mobile / smartphone gamers in Japan.

The game's website and Nintendo.co.jp have it listed for 5980 Yen (Around £35)

layton-vs-gyakuten.jp

nintendo.co.jp/3ds…tml

Regardless of the price you or your girlfriend paid in 2012, this is currently the best price for the UK retail release of the game in the UK.

You could do what we did then and just buy a JP console. It's an occasional inconvenience but it will mean that you can buy games like this much earlier and sometimes for less.

Tried to order this at 10 am seems the game has completely disappeared and no longer on the website.

Weird that it's gone altogether hopefully it might come back on, I'll keep checking and post if it does.

Page not found when I click on the link. Is the deal gone?

Original Poster

It's been removed from their site altogether I'm afraid, don't know why it's been removed as apposed to just out of stock or whatever so can be expired, if I notice it's back in stock I'll ask for it to be unexpired.

I didn't get my copy. I'm having issues with Tesco again?
