I have seen it in several game stores and Fred Meyer recently. Don't forget online e-tailers. It is really good. A new one is coming out soon also.

Harmony of Dissonance was discontinued quite a while back.

Not a chick, just a girly looking git in Aria of Sorrow. They made fun of this in EGM an issue or two ago in a preview or something.

I also have seen HOD a plenty at my local Circuit City. However, I was hard pressed to find CotM. I managed to snag a copy from one of the members of this fourm. If HOD is in fact discontinued, perhaps I will grab a copy while I can.

I bought HoD off ebay last week for $20. Ebay seems to have plenty, but mine didn't come with the instruction book

I got COTM for $10 from TRU for their Black Friday sale...that's the most i would pay for that game.

HoD is still widely available, and selling quite well actually.

Can't wait for Aria of Sorrow!!!

I asked a couple gaming stores and they mentioned that they can't get reorders for HoD. Suikoden III was also discontinued for poor sales.

I've seen the game at CC and TRU B&M.

Poor sales of Suikoden? It's only been out a few months and I thought it was a popular series.

Circuit City and Kay-Bee toys near me have both. I don't know about TRU.

I guess I'd better pick up a copy for myself soon.

It's a cult classic. Suikoden II goes for $150+ on ebay.

Yep, HoD rules! Can't wait for Aria of Sorrow. In japan they are giving out an art book for those that preorder the game. I love the art of these games, I hope they do that here too .

If anyone's interested I have a sealed copy of Catlevania: HoD and a mint copy of Suikoden III that I've been looking to sell. I'm on the Good Trader list. Drop me a line if you're interested...

I had the same problem when I went looking for one. Ended up having to drive about 30 miles where they had 1 in stock. Great game.
