Sq. Enix’s stealth-action title Left Alive hit Japanese retailer cabinets on February 28, 2019. Now, about one week following its launch, the sport’s worth has already been slashed by a whopping 60%. A ResetEra person shared the information, alongside a photograph of Left Alive on a Japanese retailer shelf. Unmistakably, the huge worth drop from eight,300 yen (about $75 USD) to 2,980 yen (about $27 USD) doesn’t look good for a recreation that simply launched.
Brick and mortar shops are usually not the one locations steeply reducing the Sq. Enix title’s worth, both. The price of Left Alive on Amazon Japan has additionally taken a colossal hit, with the unique sale worth being lower by 67%. Certainly, this appears to indicative of recent recreation launch that’s already struggling to maneuver models. The query now turns into if and when comparable worth drops will make their option to Western markets. At the moment the digital storefront pricing on platforms just like the PSN stays up at a full $60, nevertheless it wouldn’t be shocking to see it begin showing in Flash Gross sales and different weekly offers. (Don’t miss the Flash Sale taking place this weekend, even when it doesn’t embrace Left Alive!)
Left Alive’s February launch in Japan was met with little pleasure, most notably resulting from poor opinions. Given its equally poor reception elsewhere, the identical will be stated of the sport’s March fifth launch in North America and Europe. Most reviewers seem to agree overwhelming majority of Left Alive’s points lie with cumbersome controls and flawed recreation design decisions. Thus, regardless of its Metallic Gear affect, particularly evident within the involvement of Metallic Gear artist Yoji Shinkawa, Left Alive doesn’t do a lot to maintain gamers engaged long-term. Many of those sentiments had been shared in our personal evaluate, which, on the time of writing, is arguably extra favorable than others.
