Splatoon's gonna hit 2 million before any other Switch game crosses 1 million. All hail our squid overloards, long may they be fresh.

Maybe the fanbase are still moving on from the previous generation?

So it seems like Falcomís choice to go PS4 only might not work so well.

The thing is I donít see their titles selling well on Switch either since they are so heavily associated with Sony.

Cold Steel III sales are lower than expected. Sub-100k is a bummer. Hopefully the game will have good legs like Ys VIII on PS4. As said above, the userbase is probably still transitioning.

Fire Emblem Warriors 60k sales is okay, considering the game's reception. Players still are positive tho, which might result in decent legs, in combination with the supply constraints. I don't expect the Switch version to get past the 100k mark tho.

FIFA 18 did great. PS4 similar to last year. 12k on Switch is good. It's less than the first post-launch FIFA did on PS4 (FIFA 15 - almost 17k) on half the install base. But since EA abondoned Nintendo completely the last couple of years, I think they can be happy with these sales.

NIS released Coven on PS4. 5.681 sales is okay. I mean, who wants to play dungeon crawler RPGs on a home console? It's still a better result than most other recent NIS games did on the system.

New units for DBXV2 for Switch were expected late September. Well, there they are. Sucks that the Deluxe Edition is announced for PS4 at lower price. So much for that bump... :(

Depends on how much gains it will get from Asia and west. PS4 has way bigger active userbase outside of Japan than PS3&Vita had few years ago.

Well... was playing the series on portable not PS4, so unless they bring it to the Switch it'll stay where it is.
And even then, the quality dropped since Ao anyway so I don't miss it as much as I would if it was still as good.

What about Disgaea 5 ?
And the Kiseki games are released on PC too anyway.
No really I don't see it.

Doesn't make sense to me.
Most third party games would not be associated with Nintendo so none can work ?
Seeing how any type of game can sell ok on the Switch I'm actually sure Falcom could have decent result on the Switch.

If it's to see it die like Wild Arms, Breath of Fire and tons of others series, I don't think we should continue to think "Sony".

Splatoon 2 down to 66% attachment rate without digital. First week below 50% attachment rate.Should start rising again as soon as the used copies from the bundle are sold out.


Pokken actually has done really well in it's second week:

05./01. [NSW] Pokken Tournament DX <FTG> (Pokemon Co.) {2017.09.22} (•5.980) - 23.543 / 76.938 (-56%)

With the Switch being such a success it going to pass the Wii U versions LTD by the end of the year.


FEW definitely underwhelming but somewhat expected result. Definitely had a notable a lack of pre-orders and hype and has dropped quite low since release on Amazon.co.jp

I had no idea what Sen sales typically were so I'm kinda bummed to find out these are "low" numbers.

I'm half torn between saying Japan gotta get over this portable ish and thinking they should've put it on Switch. Either way, this will be a major test for Sen when it comes to the West. >_<

Edit: And Fire Emblem Warriors was always a "...So?" For me, it could've been cool if it came after FE Switch. Instead it was just the thing I looked at and wished was FE Switch instead.

Today I was speaking to one of my Japanese friends and I told him that I liked Monster Hunter very much. He told me about World and I said I wasn't too excited about it, he asked me why and I said "because I can't play it on the go", he then asked me if it's not coming to Switch, and I said "no, it's PS4 only". He got confused and disappointed because he wanted to play World with his friends at the University, like they did with past entries, so now he is not looking forward to World anymore.

Capcom is not safe as long as I'm around.

I believe in the power of the Durante PC port long game strategy!
... But no really, if they can get a good PC port of the game at around the western launch of the PS4 version, they may have a chance if they take advantage of the hype. There's not a ton of word of mouth going on around ToCS PC, but what's there is very good, so if they can just get this word to spread, maybe some sales magic can happen?
I may be being a little optimistic here, but I can dream

It got outsold by Hyrule Warriors, which was on the Wii U and was a Zelda spin-off.

You might be right, Koei-Tecmo should have waited until FE Switch came out, that and fix the roster.

Well, going by Famitsu numbers. Hyrule Warriors LTD for Wii U or 3DS were roughly double the first week.

Not saying FEW (Switch) will finish at 80k since there's sometime before Super Mario Odyssey comes out assuming we get majority of software sales going to it like Splatoon 2 did due to bundling since people don't really need to buy more than one game with a new console.

On the other hand, it's a Musou spin-off and going by the declines. If Dynasty Warriors 9 doesn't turn things around, KT better start looking for a new genre to make games of.

Hyrule Warriors was pretty novel though. Fire Emblem makes more sense as a Warriors game since it's about battles between armies in a medieval setting, but that may be exactly why it's not as hype inducing. It also seems way more restrained than HW was.

So customers who didn't find Sen III on Vita just...not buying it anyway.

Fire Emblem didn't impress either, though it's a bit higher than I thought (50k combined). Maybe KT will announce the DLC roster sooner to keep some legs? Otherwise it's pretty uneventful for something with as much potential as a Fire Emblem Musou.
