Solid Snake’s not the only one who can pull off the cardboard box look. The protagonist for Shin Megami Tensei IV can get an in-game outfit modeled after Amazon’s iconic packaging with copies pre-ordered from the online retailer.
The offer extends to existing pre-orders, so don’t worry about not getting it if you’ve already put in your order.
Shin Megami Tensei IV comes out on July 16. The first print editions will come with a 176-page strategy and art book, a Shin Megami Tensei Music Collection CD and a collectible slipcase.

Due to what Amazon.uk attributes to a “supplier error,” a “small number” of people who ordered the 32GB Wii U Premium Pack from them may have received the free copy of Nintendo Land that comes in the bundle.
To make up for the mistake, the online retailer is offering free Nintendo Land eShop download codes to everyone who ordered the bundle, even customers who didn’t have missing copies.

It’s only just been announced, yet Hyrule Historia has managed to take the top spot in Amazon’s Top 100 Best Sellers in Books, beating out 50 Shades of Grey and The Hunger Games.
Dark Horse Books revealed last week that they would be the ones to bring the massive Zelda art book/encyclopedia out of Japan.
The book is scheduled to ship on January 29, 2013 for $35. However, it’s currently going for $21 on Amazon.No comments
Team Ninja announced that the SpotPass costumes for Dead or Alive Dimensions are getting another distribution run – likely due to the influx of new 3DS owners from the recent price drop.
Announced on Team Ninja’s facebook page, the first costume giveaway starts today and will continue until September 17. Then, starting September 19, the distribution will start again and go on until October 22.
New costumes go up for download every weekday at 10 a.m.
If you don’t have the game, remember, it’s currently on sale for $28 at Amazon. Despite the negative stigma surrounding the series, it’s actually a really fun and accessible fighter. Definitely worth picking up.

A ton of handheld games are on sale over at Amazon as part of their “Summer Road Trip” sale.
While there’s some good stuff on the cheap for the DS and PSP, this sale is really a good opportunity for price-drop 3DS owners to build up their game library. Just look at some of these games:
- Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition – $29.99
- BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II – $19.99
- Dead or Alive Dimensions – $27.99
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow Wars - $28.41
You really can’t go wrong with any of those games… Well, BlazBlue was kind of a sloppy port, but it’s totally worth $20.No comments
One of the new features coming to Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked are “survivor awards.” Similar to the Tales series’ “New Game +” bonuses, survivor awards allow you to change things up for repeat playthroughs.
For example, you could choose to start a new game with all the money you collected or change which demons you’ll encounter.
While these bonuses mean absolutely nothing during your first run through the game, how well you play will effect what survivor awards you’ll be able get when the game ends — after every battle, you are evaluated and given points, which are used to buy different survivor awards.
SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked comes out on August 23. If you don’t have a 3DS, you can always pick up the original Devil Survivor, which is still on sale over at Amazon.
