Capcom's adventure game, Nazo Waku Yakata gets a paid demo in the eShop.

Last Thursday, Nintendo and Capcom released the first paid demo to the Japanese eShop, Nazo Waku Yakata. The paid demo includes the first chapter of Capcom’s 3DS adventure game and cost ¥200 ($2.55). More chapters may also be under consideration, though they are currently undecided.

Actions like this are worrisome, as they may set a precedent that future eShop demos will follow.

Talk about a good news/bad news situation!


Maybe they'll take down the paid demo and then cancel the game outright a few weeks later, blaming the fans for lack of interest.


Too soon?  :P:

Putting out a demo you have to pay for seems to be an unsavory move, but the game itself sounds rather promising.

um, perhaps I have not spent enough time with other consoles but.... a PAID demo?? why would ANYONE do that? shouldn't the demo be free to entice you to buy the full game?

does the money you pay at least get taken off the price of the game if you buy the full version!?

the cost is a problem for me, if it was some small amount of money like .25 cents that would be a great way to help clean up some extra change. That's the smart way to do paid demos, not as much as 'real games' but some money is ok.
