It was never advertised as a discount when it came out. Now its $3.99. Anyone know? US eshop.

Two Tribes has priced their games that way a few times. I think I do remember reading it was being released at a lower, introductory price, but I agree that it is weird they didn't point that out on the eShop itself.

Over at Gamefaqs the theory is because of financial woes after the Toki Tori 2 disaster. Was it a disaster? And because of financial woes doubled the price.
Not sure what is right. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/997614-nintendo-3ds/68643680

The said the price for Toki Tori, EDGE, and Rush would increase after release.

Make sure to grab your umbrella, it's raining puns out there.

What they were too lazy to have a little sticker like other discounted games on Nintendo eshop stating the end date for the $1.99? Thats lazy and very sneaky. No wonder they have financial woes, hope they go out of business. They certainly lost mine.

Well, that's harsh. It's sneaky because they didn't advertise it's on sale? Don't follow that logic.

Also, Two Tribes has had Wii U downloads on sale before, so I'm sure the 3DS downloads won't be an exception. Just wait until it's $2 again if you're that hard up for cash.

Has the price for Edge gone up on the 3DS version as well?

Yeah I checked out footage of Edge in action and the changing techno lights looked like something I would not have been able to deal with. This price increase makes me care even less now, sorry to say.

They won't go out of business. They have done a similar thing to what the Bioshock Infinite guy did but somehow managed to get a different response. (i.e lay off all the staff). But they kept all the IP separate.

This is a cool game- a steal for $2, but still very much worth it for $3.99.....

I just realized this is the 3DS section. There is a Wii U version of Edge as well. It was also $1.99 but I'm assuming that's gone up in price too. I keep forgetting to check the eShop when I'm home
