Somewhere. I think.
Sinobi has turned from one of biggest Switch doubters to one of its biggest supporters. Tropical Freeze was the real game changer for him.
Doubters sales-wise, or personally?

First Day Sell-through {2018.06.07}

[PS4] [PSV] Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star Link # <ACT> (Marvelous) - 50%, PS4 > PSV

[NSW] [PS4] Little Nightmares: Complete Edition <ADV> (Bandai Namco Games) (¥3.200) - 40%, NSW > PS4
Only 50% for Fate/Extella? Seems a bit on the low end for a pretty frontloaded "series".

Surprised that Little Nightmares sold better on Switch, but I guess that's because it was already available on PSN.

By the way, Layton 1 for smartphones now available:

User Banned (1 Day) : Trolling LABO topics. Accumulated Infractions.
I used to think you actually had something against LABO, but I guess you're just parodying crazy Nintendo haters. You certainly had me convinced for a while.
don't ruin the fun ;)

They shouldn't ever watch a turd of a show like that.

People might have bought the game because of that viral video on twitter I think
Eh didn't hear about this, do you have a link?
I imagine it's spoilerish in some form considering the game so I might check it only when I finish it.

I'm not quite sure about the quality or not of the Pokemon anime currently, but the one line dismissal of a show that is still watched by I assumed a couple millions of kids do tend to look like something like a troll.
Which makes it a bit ironic that you use that word about someone else just below in the same post.

This series has been surprisingly consistent (even more than the previous series). Last week, it had a 3.5 rating, it usuall hovers around 3 and 3.5. Really curious to see what they do with Let's Go, considering they have gone through story content from Sun and Moon really fast. I could see a mini-series at Kanto before Gen 8 in 2019.

Plenty of shows are watched by millions. That doesn't necessarily make them good or prevent a show from being a turd.

But tell me, if you want me to expand on my statement, I can. Would you like to read my criticism of the Pokémon anime?

Oh I love reading the analyses of children's shows using adult scrutiny. Your thesis has my eyes.

I mean, we just saw an adult meltdown over Labo. Why leave the pokemon anime out in the cold?

That plus the (not) Eddie Murphy thing was a strange turn for this last page.

OMG this page lmao. And I'm all like 'MC will be boring' since like 2/3 weeks ago. I underestimated y'all. Hopefully E3 can bring us back to more... shall we say nuanced discussion.

Between 150k and 200k FW, 800k lifetime (probably including some Happy Price Selection release later down the line) unless a new one releases for Switch in less than 1 year.
this is probably the biggest game in Japan that I genuinely haven’t heard of before joining ERA. Does it only really do well in Japan?

Lite_Agent That's what I heard about the rating, thanks for the details.
The Let's go title(s) might indeed shake up the formula a little bit, could be interesting to see where they go.

But tell me, if you want me to expand on my statement, I can. Would you like to read my criticism of the Pokémon anime?
Well let's say first that between the best anime ever and a turd there are millions of nuances and I was a bit surprised that a show that has been running for 20 years with consistent and good rating and audience, played a big part in keeping Pokemon the behomoth IP it is on every front still managed to do it by falling to fall in that "in between category" and by being a turd.

But maybe there's something different about Sun/Moon particulary?
Looking at it with one eye, besides the character design that was refreshed (for the first time since they started) I didn't notice much else being that different, I might have miss something so by all mean I wouldn't mind to know about it.

Or you think the whole anime is a turd from the start and in that case I don't think there's much room for discussion.

The Taiko no Tatsujin franchise has been in severe decline since the end of Wii era. 2011-2012 was the last great year, after then sales plummeted and not only because they were released on platforms with less familiar audience like PlayStation systems or because they were released on failed systems like Nintendo Wii U. The latest entries on Nintendo 3DS performed mediocrely too.

I acknowledge the declining trend. Now that I look at the sales numbers of older titles again, 800k is probably too high. I do think, however, that a release on a new platform (that is the hottest thing at the moment), motion controlled gaming without drum, and the inclusion of very popular songs like Jump Up Super Star and the Splatoon music (which are bigger deals than the game songs in the last couple of games imo) can help to spark new interest in the series. I'll be disappointed if it doesn't do 500k+.

(Of course this doesn't count, but I think a mainland Asian release will help the game a lot, especially with English language support. Hopefully we'll get a combined sales number some time after release.)

There hasn't been a single Taiko Drum Master game that sold that much FW. Record is 114k for Taiko no Tatsujin Wii. No way it sells even 100k on Switch.

Best debut on 3DS is Taiko no Tatsujin: Chibi Dragon to Fushigi na Orb with 63k (and 600k LTD). 50k FW is much more realistic for Taiko Switch, though I'm not sure it'll even reach that. Need more data to know for sure.

What I expect is a lowish debut, with low sell-through (0-20%, 20-40% at best), but good legs during Summer holiday and end of year season. No bomba bins, but you're definitely going to get "wow, Taiko bomba" comments for launc week ;)

It has a lot of licensed music. Because of that, they only release it in Japan. Since the PS4 game last year, they also do a mainland Asia release (with English language option!), so it's more import friendly now.

I dunno about the current series but XYZ was fucking great. I'd stopped watching the anime years and years ago (10ish years) but peeped a few episodes of XY and it was super quality. The animation was superb.

Sun and Moon is better for the change in models now allowing freer expression, however XYZ was the heights of animation in terms of what's "pretty". Sun and Moon is more fun than pretty.

500k to 600k for me seems possible to hit there. As the 3ds one,(the fushigi orb did hit that number) however 800k is going to really hard if u ask me.

I do feel they missed a lot by not adding Xenoblade 2 ost lol. As that is currently doing crazily good.^_^
