  • Conclusion: Recettear: An Item Shop’s tale is an excellent start for the up and coming game localization team of Carpe Fulgar, and I can’t wait to see their next project. NISA, XSEED, and what used to be Atlus can only localize so much.

  • Summary: A unique spin off of the Japanese RPG that's half shop management, half dungeon-crawler.
  • Pros: Unique plot. Varied gameplay. Fun bartering mechanic .
  • Cons: Far too chatty. Dungeon crawling is simplistic.
