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.
So I guess the mystery behind at least some of Switch's shocking third party woes are starting to be uncovered.
Should something like this lead to small bumps in sales? I know we saw one with the last Splatoon bundle but this is basically the same bundle.
early word is that the switch version is the best-selling sku in the west launch-aligned, and not far behind the ps4 + psv launch last year. it's only been a week, but still. it seems a bit like disgaea 5 complete again.
I wonder how Falcom will react.
That's fantastic. I hope this means more Ys (and Falcom in general) on the Switch.
How does Ys 8 on Switch compare to XSEED's Falcom releases sales-wise?
I don’t know if people should be happy or sad about this lol
That is a real bundle in Japan. I know in many countries if you buy a can of beer it is x and if you buy a 6 pack it is 6x*0.d, but in Japan it is 6x. This is the norm for most bundling here.
Don't know how to feel about it.
i don't really know. i have numbers from.... a long time ago. the psp games did okay (pretty sure ys seven sold the most at around 30k), but i think celceta did the best among them. celceta might be the sales leader on physical formats out in the west until ys viii starts coming down in price.
if i were to guess, they'll continue to focus on the ps4 in japan. they don't really need to start working on switch since their userbase is pretty nicely established on playstation. if anything would force them to shift resources over to switch, it would probably be ps5 coming out and selling like xbox one. but even then, the ps4 should have a long life in japan like ps3, psp, and ps vita, so they would just move stuff over to switch 2 instead.
it was one of the main reasons i got a vita, and it was my intro to ys (danganronpa and tearaway being the other two). the 25th anniversary edition is really nice for $20 more.
Yep, totally agree
Nice. I'll probably get Ys 8 sometime this year, but Octopath Traveler comes first. If I do get Ys, it might be digitally
And Nintendo still can't figure out how to add Chinese and Korean UI to Switch. Seriously how hard could that be?"During the fiscal year from April 1, 2017 to March 31,2018, Nintendo Hong Kong Ltd. achieved a sales of 35.937 Billion Yen. In comparison, Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe GmbH each earned 10.5 times as much and 6.5 times as much."
