While Steam sales are slated to start later today, many platforms have already started their Golden Week sales to celebrate Asian developers and the titles they bring. Humble Bundle started its Golden Week sale yesterday which highlights everything from the Disgaea franchise to Killer7, with discounts as low as 89% off the price.New Steam Sale Begins Today Called Golden Week Sale Highlighting Asian Titles
It should be noted that most platforms and showcases tend to use Golden Week, a public holiday shared by Japan and China, as a means of broadcasting all Asian titles at once. While you’re sure to see more than a good portion of the JRPGs on sale this week, you’ll also get bizarre amounts of fan-service and visual novels that have been made in the Eastern Hemisphere without necessarily adhering to a nationality specific.
While the Humble Bundle Golden Week has already started, it should not be over for four days on May 4. If you’ve been watching a specific title from an Asian studio, you’ll probably be responsible for waiting to buy until Steam also begins selling. This will allow you to assess both sales and make sure that you are buying on the platform that will give you the best value for your money.
