Nintendo restocked Captain Toad at many retailers, supply problems will be soon past.
How is the reception of Scarlet Grace so far btw?
It's a port of a Vita game not many cared originally despite great word of mouth. Expect zero legs.

This degree of shortages has nothing to do with carts at this point. SE just fucked up, simple as that.

They fucked up really badly.

?

Setsuna did almost 60k FW. Lost Sphear did around 14k.

Scarlet Grace did 58k FW.
On Switch. I expect <20k. I think Setsuna was like <10k.

They fucked up really badly.
What do you mean? It is because of cart production that there are ongoing shortages. Is that hard to understand? When was the last time you saw this with a disc release? The restocks are limited because they can only produce limited stock each time.

especially exceeded in US and Europe?

really?
from day one I figured 75% or so of it's sales would come from the west. eh

wonder if higher than normal digital means "higher than normal in general" or "higher than normal on switch"

75% is basically the Western HW ratio for the Switch. Games that got a WW release with a different repartition between Japan/West will be the exceptions.

What's the next fro DQ on consoles?

Builders 2 has been announced but what about DQ Monsters? And DQ remakes?

These games getting the FF IV PSP treatment would have been great ...sadly SE doesn't agree.
I think conditions are there for those games to succeed: nostalgia, people starving for more traditional jRPGs, Switch selling greatly in Japan.

I think it's time to give FFV and FFVI a chance by developing remakes that are faithful to the original material.
With the existence of the current ports of the original games, you'll get a 3D version, much like FF 3 and 4. At this point, I'd assume anything else is out of the question

That to a certain extent this is cart production related I would agree, but how do you explain Toad getting this week sufficient new stock in?

One company controls the entire cart supply line, while the other doesn't. They both compete for carts, who do you think will get the most copies? I don't think Nintendo is really fair with this stuff.

I think Square has seen the requests for FF VI done in the Octopath graphical style. People have been talking about that since Project Octopath Traveler was revealed at the Switch presentation. The team that worked on Octopath even acknowledged that people have been asking about it but they would rather work on something new. Which is fine, SE can have another team work on it. They wouldn't need to go nuts with changes anyway

But isn’t Nintendo also publishing Octopath everywhere outside Japan?

The next DQ to remake is less than ten years old, I think we won't see it any time soon. I do expext some kind of DQM news after DQB2 comes out.

I have no idea what the supply situation is but surely Captain Toad is more profitable for Nintendo to sell than a Square Enix game.
The difference in price might make Octopath more profitable than Captain Toad for Nintendo...

However, it is clear that a copy of Octopath sold in the West is more profitable than a copy sold in Japan and since Europe is currently facing severe supply issues for the game, Nintendo might favor this market over Square and Japan.

DQV was remade 12 years after the original and then remade again on DS 5 years later.

I think DQIX can greatly improved with a remake given that it was released on a technologically weak platform.

Actually, isn't it in their best interest to stop cart production nearly completely? Selling all digital copies would yield the most profit would it not? It would also provide the added benefit of destroying the used game sales of which they see no profit from.

This will definitely cause lost sales, especially in Japan, probably much more than the extra profit from digital.

Going by past trends, will we get a Dragon Quest remake next year ? And when do they usually announce these games ?
I bet the next remake will be DQM Caravan Heart from Tose. Only question is Switch exclusive or Switch+PS4.

What do you mean? It is because of cart production that there are ongoing shortages. Is that hard to understand? When was the last time you saw this with a disc release? The restocks are limited because they can only produce limited stock each time.
Last time with a disc was probably MHP3. It’s likely less about the media type itself (silicon vs optical) and more about Switch using an entirely customized format from Macronix while all the Blu-ray consoles can use long established cross-industry manufacturing from a variety of vendors. If Nintendo could contract out more factories in cases like this Switch software shortages could probably be alleviated much sooner.
