Moon Chronicles Pricing!?

Moon Chronicles is nearly ready for launch on the Nintendo 3DS, which is very exciting. We would like to take this opportunity to hear your feedback on pricing, as the episodic nature of Moon Chronicles is unique for the Nintendo eShop.

What is the Game?
Before we get into pricing, let me give you some important information on what Moon Chronicles is, and what our episodic approach means.

Season one of Moon Chronicles is a remastering of Renegade Kid's award-winning Nintendo DS title, Moon, which now features enhanced visuals, audio, enemy AI, and all running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second with 3D on or off.

Season one is split into 4 separate episodes, and each episode is very close in gameplay length and content: approximately 2 - 4 hours per episode, depending on your approach.

A La Carte and Season Pass
You will be able to purchase each episode separately, when they become available this year, a la carte style.

When episode 2 is launched, later this year, you will also have an option to purchase a season pass which includes the remaining episodes (2, 3, and 4) for a single lower price.

This gives you a chance to purchase episode 1 to see if you like the game before committing to buying the entire season. If you like episode 1, you will be able to make an additional purchase for the season pass.

If you are not ready to commit to a season pass, you will be able to purchase just episode 2.

How Much Will You Pay?
Here's what we'd like to hear from you:

1. How much will you pay for each episode, in US Dollars?

2. How much will you pay for the season pass (episodes 2, 3, and 4), in US Dollars?

** Please add your feedback below, in the comments. **

If you have any questions, please put them in the comments below and I will make changes to this post if extra clarification is needed anywhere.

Thank you!
