With the release of Resident Evil: Revelations only a week away, Capcom has implemented a last-minute price cut. Originally slated for $49.99, Capcom recently announced that the 3DS title would hit shelves with a shiny new $39.99 price tag.
Bret Elston, community manager for Capcom, had this to say on the subject:
Since the announcement of the $49.99 price point, we’ve spent weeks looking for a way to bring your cost down to standard 3DS pricing. Today we can finally confirm we were successful in this, and hope the reduced price encourages even more people to check out this strong entry in the Resident Evil canon.
Although there’s been no word on what allowed such a price drop, I’m wondering if Capcom got a discount due to misprinted labels (see below).
