The Supposedly Spooky Capcom Halloween Sale of 2022

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - It seems the same as any other sale.

Tonight, we're talking about CAPCOM, a company that will put anything on sale for any reason. Check out the latest Nintendo eShop sale:

“Capcom Halloween Sale
10/19 at 9:00 a.m. PT to 11/1 at 11:59 p.m. PT

Capcom is offering a handful of classic titles at a spooky price! Be sure to check out the Capcom Halloween Sale line-up and grab Capcom Fighting Collection, Devil May Cry and more! Up to 67% off for Switch games and 83% off for 3DS games!”
Are those classic titles truly at a spooky price? Well, that 83% off 3DS games means the three Ace Attorney titles on 3DS for $5 each, which has been the standard discount rate for a while now. Plus classic sales like The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles for a mere $25, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for $15, and the two of those bundled together in Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection for $35. (The only spooky thing here is NOT getting the entire mainline Ace Attorney series plus two spin-offs—for a grand total of eight amazing adventure games that'll collectively last you over 200 hours—for 50 USD.)

Other very familiar discounts include the Resident Evil games at 50% off, Devil May Cry at 50% off (and Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition at 40% off). That's all the same discounts as before. Even Capcom Fighting Collection at 25% off matches the previous sale, as well as 50% off Monster Hunter Stories 2. Monster Hunter Rise + Sunbreak is being sold for $50 instead of $70, which also ties the last sale from last month.

So... are these prices really spooky? (Are these games actually classic?) ...No, that's nonsense. But regardless of the irrelevant seasonal tie-ins (and I believe this is the first time they've made a sale specifically for Halloween), you should look to take advantage of them. Any opportunity you can get for LOWER PRICES in this economy is an opportunity you ought to take time into looking into, even if there's nothing new about these lower prices.

I guess they put some effort into the font for HALLOWEEN SALE.
Even if non-spooky games are also on sale.

These CAPCOM sales are also available in the United Kingdom, though the sales there last until November 16, 2022. Get The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles at 38% off for 20.45 GBP! Or other parts of Europe, still 38% off and sale still ends November 16, just in Euros.

There were two purposes to this article. One, to mock Halloween tie-ins. Two, to promote purchases of the Ace Attorney franchise, even if it's not one that's visually called out as spooky in CAPCOM's banner.

The last CAPCOM-involved sale was in the middle of September to celebrate Tokyo Game Show.
Predictably, Ace Attorney games are also on sale in November 2022.


  1. Hrm...Capcom really DOES have sales very often, don't they? And coming to think of it, Mega Man Battle Network is also a Capcom game. Maaaaybe I should hold off a little on getting it when it comes out.

    They're not, uh, doing a limited release period or anything like that, right? Surely not!

    1. They might do a pre-order bonus, since they've done that for lots of other games lately.

    2. Hmmmmm...were there such bonuses for the previous Mega Man Legacy Collections? And what did they entail?

    3. Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection had "Reploid Remixes", additional remixed songs specially made for the legacy collection that you could have play in place of the normal songs when they play in-game. They later became available as a free download.

    4. Hmm, I suppose we'll see then. Most likely, the deciding factor will be if I decide I want to play it right away when it comes out. I probably will, but if I can save some of my birthday eshop credit for yet another game, that would only be a good thing...

    5. We don't even have a release date for it, so that'll likely be a big factor as well.

    6. Ugh, don't remind me. It's like the very same moment they opened the door of Tears of the Kingdom's release date, they showed off another door I really want too but said "we're not going to open this one, nyah nyah!"

      I mean, I know there are reasons for that kind of thing, but still, haven't the 2020s psychologically tortured me enough?
