Hmm, MS kind of botched the box worldwide. In Canada they goofed the text on the back cover:


(Not my pic)

You can see the Spanish version of SURVIVE is typed as SOBREVIVe. They forgot to capitalize that last "e" so it sticks out like a sore thumb. Plus they differ in how they type "Super Mario Mash-Up Pack" as well. Some lack the hyphen, some don't capitalize the "u" in "Up". My OCD can't handle this! :P

Also. I'm sad they didn't seize the opportunity to advertise the XBL account usage and the XBL achievement system. They should also show that you can have the Halo Mash-Up Pack (or whatever it's called) as well as other MS characters including Banjo characters. And don't get me started on the lack of screens! :P

Can't read Japanese to verify the source (other than through Google Translate) but thought I might as well share here:


Wouldn't surprise me to be honest, they haven't exactly had any hits in the gaming space and went in hard on making Caligula Effect into a franchise which doesn't seem to have worked.
That's bad, probably wont be a switch version

YSO predictions

01. [NSW] Mario Tennis Aces < 50k (average 40k) [week 2]
02. [NSW] Minecraft < 45k (average 35k) [week 2]
03. [NSW] Splatoon 2 < 20k (average 15k) [week 50]
Nice. If their predictions come true, then Aces will have eclipsed Ultra Smash's LTD by its second week and reached 200k by its third.

Now i wonder if the project of that Switch Jrpg will still continue or not there.

Furyu failure is kinda sad. They are investing on all the wrong product recently.

They put hope on Caligula when Alliance Alive is much much better received. And then. Not trying to release the new Caligula on Switch to take advantage of the hot selling system is baffling as PS4 and Switch combo release should be able to help sold more than what they got there.

That's the limit of how much money they can burn I guess

I think it became awfully clear through FuRyu's products that the game division was part of a larger conglomerate, rather than a game-focused company. The products are made on a very tight budget. While they hired some well-known staff for The Legend of Legacy and The Alliance Alive, the problem of overall project scope still stands. It also didn't help that they were trying to get into a niche that was created by a successful project shortly before: aside from cheap Digimon and Cardfight! Vanguard tie-ins, The Legend of Legacy looks like low budget Bravely Default (although this project got a bit more breathing room and got more creative freedom as a result) and Caligula looks like low budget Persona/Trails game. And what they have in production now looks pretty niche too.

I think FuRyu have to blame themselves for their lack of success. Compare them to Cygames, who are really serious about getting a foot in the console space by hiring a lot more renowned key staff, taking on bigger projects, and giving these projects a bigger budget and more time to come to life. Cygames isn't just trying it with the Granblue Fantasy action game by PlatinumGames, but also with Project Awakening, a RPG that looks like it's not directly related to their mobile hit IP (announced in August 2016, shown behind closed doors last month at E3). Technical director Junji Tago, who worked at Konami on the Fox Engine, is working on that game. And this week, they announced three other key hires in Danganronpa producer Yuichiro Saito, Bravely Default director Kensuke Nakahara, and Idolmaster general producer Akihiro Ishihara. These aren't just project collaborations, but actual hires.

FuRyu just lacked such initiatives and tried to survive by making quick bucks off small projects in a hit-driven industry.
Cygames have much much much much more money to spend than FuRyu
They also released approximately 0 game on console, so I wouldn't call their approach better for the moment, they just are filthy rich and are spending a shitton of money on projects we have yet to see playable to the public, to say they have been better than FuRyu is rather ironic in fact, would have FuRyu's fate as a dev/publiher turn out differently by focusing on a couple projects in development for years targeting high end budgets? Who knows, but had they fail the end result would've been the exact same or even worse, and if they didn't that's probably because they couldn't afford it in the first place.

ゲオ メディア商品部メディア商品2課 バイヤー 武藤 崇史氏のコメント】

今週のランキングもSwitch「マリオテニス エース」が1位となりました。先週に引き続き、2週連続での1位獲得となります。

2位には新作のPS4「ザ クルー2(ネット専用)」がランクインしておりますが、“モータースポーツデラックスパック”のプロダクトコードがセットになったゲオ限定商品を取り扱っていることもあり、初週で前作の累計販売を超える販売となりました。また6位のSwitch「イース8 -Lacrimosa of DANA-」はPS Vita→PS4→Switchと3機種目の発売ですが、まずまずの初動となっております。

「キングダム ハーツ -HD1.5+2.5 リミックス-」、「ウイニングイレブン 2018」など時事的なもので売上ランキングが伸びている商品にも注目です。

Comment of Mr. Takafumi Muto
"Switch of this week 's ranking "Mario tennis ace" became first place. Continuing from last week, it will be number one in 2 consecutive weeks.

In the second place, the new PS 4 "The crew 2 (net only)" is ranked in, but sometimes dealing with the Geo limited item that the product code of "Motor Sports Deluxe Pack" was set, It became a sale exceeding the cumulative sales of the previous work in the first week. Also, the switch "Ys 8 - Lacrimosa of DANA -" in 6th place is PS Vita -> PS 4 - Switch and release of the third model, but it is reasonable initial move.

It is also noteworthy for products that are on the rise in sales rankings such as "Kingdom Hearts - HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix -", "Winning Eleven 2018" and so on."
 
Looks like the FuRyu shutdown was about their smartphone game division and not about their console game division. Hopefully their console games will find enough success to keep that division in business for the years to come.


Statement Being Clarified

“Investment in game development will be temporarily suspended, and we will maximize our focus on the monetization of the titles that we have already invested in.”

Clarification

What we are describing is in regards to the smartphone games within our games business—while we have been releasing several titles each year, we temporarily suspended the development of new titles in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. With that in mind, please take note of the following information:

  • For console games, we will continue to plan, develop, and sell games in the same way we have been during and after the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019.
  • For smartphone games, we do not have any release plans for new titles during and after the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, and will focus on maximizing the revenue of the titles that are currently available.

If Japan looses this, will all Japanese Fifa owners commit sudoku, thus cratering potential Fifa 19 sales on switch ?

Welp, Japan just lost. They played great, though.

Wonder what the impact on sales will be, if any. Quite a sour way to leave the tournament, giving away a 2-0 lead and to lose in the dying seconds of the game.

Back when NCAA Football was a thing, I was always more motivated to go back and play it when my school was doing badly, just to make things right. Maybe it could provoke a similar reaction?

In no way did Japan play badly, though. To almost beat the no. 3 of the world is a massive achievement. And they also won from Colombia, a great team as well. Japan is my surprise of the tournament (so far).

That's fair, I didn't mean to imply they played badly (my school certainly did though), just I wanted that second chance to set it right, even if in my head. I could see a lot of people in Japan wanting to reenact that game and make it go their way this time.

^ It is. People commonly mistakened sudoku for seppuku, the samurai act of committing suicide, and since then has become a meme

So with media create it ranks weekly and Splatoon 2 just recently got a #1 rank week which is the first time a game took the number 1 spot so late in its life since Pokemon green and blue in '97. Any idea of if/what records it has on a monthly basis?

It’s going to be like 6-8k. It’ll do better in the west but Xseed fans have been campaigning hard against it. Unfairly to a degree too as the Switch port seems pretty solid even at launch.
Yeah, I got it myself and I'm really having fun with it. Hoping it manages to debut above 10k because it's a great game that deserves more sales.
