Stumbled across this from their email link to their current sale.

A rather bargainous £30.85 for a top quality game

Pretty sure it's the cheapest it's been, especially for the Switch version.

    Just shared this too but you beat me to it by a couple of mins lol. Does seem a really good price. Next cheapest is Game at £37.99 and then Amazon/Thegamecollection at £39.95. I ordered a copy just before midnight last night with the £2 cashback bonus from topcashback, so can't really complain at all. Gets really positive reviews. Heat given. (edited)

    One of the best JRPGs you’ll ever play in terms of story and by far the best in the Star Ocean series.
