Dear Nintendo Life Readers...

I need your help.

I have a, dare I say, dilemma.

I have been keeping my eye on 'Code of Princess' for a while now, and it has finally reached Australian shores. Splashing onto the Nintendo eShop at $49.95 AUD.

I would like to enlist the help of those who have played this title, even friends of friends of people who have played this title.

I would like to know; is it the fun, funny beat 'em up that I have heard about? Will it be worth the above price tag? Do you think I will get, well, enough bang for my buck(s)?

I leave it in your capable hands to help me make up my mind, and I offer you my sincerest thanks.

when i first played it (first month of release), it is hard to find players online... it's fun if you like those type of games --> beat'em-up/fighting... if not, then you might find it hard to have fun with the game...

getting this game above normal price is a no-no for me, because single player is just too short...... it's a BIG YES for me, IF AND ONLY IF it has an active online community or i have friends w/c really enjoys the game... i tried once playing with 3people locally and it's really really fun...

Is that a normal (ie: full) price for 3DS games where you live? What is your gaming budget like?

Code of Princess is a good, fun beat'em up... but it's fairly short. Online play and multiple characters and bonus missions all help to extend the value, but it is still a simple brawler where you repeat the same actions over and over. Worth playing, but worth paying full price in my opinion. The catch: it is probably getting a small print run, so waiting for a sale could leave you empty-handed.

I was lucky. After buying at full price and beating Code of Princess, was able to trade my copy for a different game that I wanted. Later saw a used copy of Code of Princess on sale for $15 and happily reacquired. Glad to own this game, but find it hard to recommend without some reservations.

If only that were the RRP of all 3DS games here...

Usually, a first-party Nintendo 3DS game's RRP is... $69.95. That is the eShop price for games like New Super Mario Bros. 2, etc.

It was also only released on the eShop here, so finding a traded in copy is... impossible.

Funny thing though, Nintendo sort of fixed their RRPs for Wii U... Now games only retail for $79.95 instead of $99.95... I think they need to fix their 3DS game prices.

... Anyway, bottom line is I will have to pay $49.95 for the title, unless there is an eShop sale, or they lower the price. I do have the money sitting in my eShop wallet, perhaps I would be better off getting several other eShop games?

I think u should not get it , The game is alot of fun and the characters are really funny and there are alot of characters to play with , also multiplayer is amazing.
However ; the game is short about 4 hours and leveling up is kinda useless , because u dont gain any new abilites and worst of all , if ur extermely lucky and atleast after 10min of waiting u may find an online match. I'd say get this game but for 20-25$ , not more 50$ is too much, just skip it.

The game has a really solid multiplayer aspect. I'm not sure if it is worth it for the single-player campaign alone, though...

It really depends how much you like beat em'ups.

If you're old enough to remember the classic Guardian Heroes on Saturn then you have an idea of what this game is like. I loved Guardian Heroes on my saturn i still have it lol, this is pretty much a spiritual successor and does a great job. The only thing i don't like and i hope they patch in is that you can't do multiplayer alone with just bots so you can't use all the enemies you can unlock unless you're playing with another player (You could in Guardian Heroes). But there are 8 characters to level up and 100's of quests to do solo, imo this game has tons of replayability. Heres what the game includes:

Campaign, choose 1 of four characters and complete the story
Freeplay, choose 1 of 8 characters and play campaign missions without the cut scenes
Bonus quests (about 50+) , choose 1 of 8 characters and play challenges,brawls and boss fights.

Local co-op or competitive (You can play with every enemy or hero in the game)
Online co-op or competitive (You can play with every enemy or hero in the game)

If i had to rate it i would give it an 8, nice graphic, nice music, engaging pick up and play gameplay. The only negative is sometimes the frame rate goes a bit wonky if there are lots of enemies and magic on the screen at the sametime.
But if you haven't played Guardian Heroes i think you can get in on Xbox Live and PS network for under a tenner,
