But Switch games sell better than Wii U or 3DS games and this Mario Party rembember Mario Party 8 and Mario Party DS, the best sales of the IP. So first week, probably Black Ops 4. In October, too. But Super Mario Party will probably be upper LTD.
Switch and Switch software will sell A LOT during holidays. Mario Party will do wonders in December.

SoftBank distributed their physical PC copies to game stores until around 2008/2009, according to their FY reports and shareholder disclosures from that period. Even if Falcom had been getting by on the dismal sales of games like Zwei II, SoftBank clearly saw reason to drop them. Falcom knew that physical PC releases were their only viable option for PC releases, and PSP releases had caught up in sales, so they jumped ship.
Awesome. I was hoping someone would remember what I was thinking of. Thanks!

Gust also had the same amount of employees. And they are able to release title on timely manner and even higher output vs Falcom there.
Game quality aside, Gust uses Koei Tecmo's engine/tech and presumably has access to support and technical expertise beyond their own employees. As I recall their output was much more like Falcom's when they were independent.
 
Just looked at the New 2DS XL bundles, and they're kind of a disguised price drop.

New 2DS XL Minecraft: 16 980 Yen (taxes excluded)
New 2DS XL alone: 14 980 Yen (taxes excluded)
Minecraft N3DS: 3 888 Yen (taxes included)
Bundle = roughly 1 888 Yen cheaper

Funnily enough, the game comes pre-loaded on SD Card (like the other bundles by the way), so still no retail release for Minecraft New 3DS proper. Safe to assume there will not be one now that Switch version is out.

New 2DS XL Animal Crossing: 15 980 Yen (taxes excluded)
New 2DS XL alone: 14 980 Yen (taxes excluded)
Animal Crossing: 2 916 Yen (taxes included)
Bundle = roughly 1 916 Yen cheaper

Something I noticed about this bundle is that the design on the console is same one as the EU bundle... they even left the title in English on the console itself.

New 2DS XL Mario Kart 7: 15 980 Yen (taxes excluded)
New 2DS XL alone: 14 980 Yen (taxes excluded)
Mario Kart 7: 4 571 Yen (taxes excluded) [no Nintendo Selects release in Japan)
Bundle = roughly 3 571 Yen cheaper

Interesting move, to say the least. Definitely will not compensate for the DQXI effect from last year, but still enough extra sales to be worth it.

We only found about this one by chance. God only knows what's going on and how often this happens.
Thats true. I just mean that those type of deals are usually tied to single games, and shouldnt affect the overall support for one platform. Nintendo likely has a deal with Square Enix regarding Octopath Traveler for example, but Square Enix is still supporting other platforms. Thats why i dont think this is a bigger factor to Switch's support overall, in my opinion.

It's nuts seeing a Minecraft Special Edition for a Nintendo console, albeit a handheld device. MS was totally fine letting their ip's rock on GBA and DS back in the day. Kind of sad Halo DS never got past the pitch phase, would've been cool to see some MS spin offs on handheld

Switch is more directly competitive but who knows, maybe someday we’ll see MS loosen up again and allow Nintendo handheld sublicensing. I think there’d be a market for things like Rare Replay or Blue Dragon on the platform without necessarily taking space from the Xbox platform.

Ya super Mario party I predict a minimum 120k FW. Could go up based on advertising.

Rare Replay with the N64 versions of the games and Donkey Kong games instead of the Xbox exclusives is what we need. That collection is years old anyway. Why not port it

Another 7980 yen game. Sounds pretty expensive to me for an anime license game, but Bandai Namco does it too, so I guess it doesn't matter. Hopefully it's good.
adding Preggo ending= guaranteed sales lol. That is literally what makes those otakus buy this kinda of game lol.

I'm expecting Super Mario Party to open closer to Mario Party 9 (160k) and Island Tour (135k). I think Star Rush and Top 100 first week suffered from oversaturation on the platform. Super Mario Party being the first MP on Switch and a return to the traditional gameplay should see a considerable boost in sales imo.
If Bravely Default is the base for Octopath Traveler sales it won't disappoint.
So we're looking at a ~150k debut potentially?

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.
This is very encouraging to hear.

"Which people have been complaining about Ys 8" I ask three days after a thread of people talking about how much they hate NISA as Ys 8 launched with a bug that rendered the game unplayable if people downloaded the DLC first.

https://www.resetera.com/threads/ps...viii-switch-dlc-before-the-day-1-patch.51717/
I didn't have the problem and it's already fixed it seems. They were definitly faster with patches on Switch (on version 1.03 now) than on the other systems. I can understand the anger about localisation problems with all versions, but the Switchversion worked fine for me and i play it since day one.

Celceta did so well over here that it was outselling Japan for a while so it's not like the series isn't successful in the west, but even if it wasn't, settling for garbage just means you'll get more garbage
The Switch port isn't garbage though. I mean i'm not a NIS fan, i would take it with joy from XSeed, but the game itself is good and the Switchport ok.

Isn't that a bit too much? Maybe ~100K seem a more realistic goal

Maybe having a bigger presence at TGS highlighting some japanese partnerships would be a nice way to garner some goodwill towards them. Don't know why they're so against it. Sony has a full conference there, and a booth, and every year they have their awards ceremony to celebrate the third party games that did well. They're putting in the work.

Iirc, TGS was once a Sony-helmed event, at least, there's been some connection between TGS and Sony. That and because Spaceworld existed were pretty much good reasons for Nintendo to skip TGS ... what's keeping them away now, dunno though.

I guess they'll keep doing business meetings and maybe a Direct around TGS time, but i don't see them becoming an exhibitor in the near future.

Good will from who and for what ? Every relevant JP publisher already is on board and has released games for the system...the time for some kind of lips service is over and people only care/want announcements of games they can actually play soon and not for forum list-wars.

There is nothing that could come out of this that would have a bigger impact than the same announcement on a Direct or Nintendos fall lineup conference. Publishers who are on TGS will obv. highlight their Switch titles on the showfloor as well.

Sony is better in third parties' relationships and Sony needs third parties more than Nintendo.
 
The physical version confirmed?
I can't find a confirmation by Nippon Ichi Software (they haven't posted about the game at all), but Famitsu definitely presents it as one. With download-only games, they usually explicitly say it's a "Nintendo Switch用ダウンロードソフト". They did that as well when NIS announced Penny-Punching Princess and The Longest Five Minutes for Switch in Japan (link). It has a price of 6980 yen (7538 yen tax included) mentioned in the article, which is the normal retail game price for a Switch game by NIS.

So yeah, 99.9% sure it'll have a retail release, but not 100%.

After Fire Emblem Heroes, I'm disappointed that Dragalia Lost doesn't appear to be as much of a worldwide effort for Nintendo.

To be fair I said closer to those numbers than Star Rush/Top 100 numbers. So I think ~100k would qualify.

Unless you’re talking about Octopath, in which case I don’t know lol. I was thinking 100k until Chris made that post.
