Someone else brought that up as well. I knew that Chantelise was the older game when I was writing the review. I think people who have played Recettear and are thinking of playing Chantelise want to know whether it is better or worse than Recettear. That's just the way it goes because Recettear came out in the west first, so it's only natural that people are going to want to know how the game fares in comparison.
I also didn't say the game didn't hold up as well. :P My review is only 8% lower than Dincrest's Recettear review. You know what that 8% is? Originality. Recettear had the original Shop Keeping/Item Management aspect. Chantelise doesn't do anything original like that, it's just a good game for what it is.
