Etrian Odyssey X will be very frontloaded at sales but has been restocked at most places since yesterday, Octopath Traveler is the only game that insists to be out of stock.

Surely by obon they can at least come close to matching demand. Big missed oppurtunty otherwise.

Dengeki

Fiscal Year 2018 (April 1st to July 29th)

  • Hardware: 1 220 000 units (-31.4%) / 35.7 billion Yen (-24.7%)
  • Software: 5.95 million units (-31.2%) / 38.5 billion Yen (-27.6%)
  • Total: 74.2 billion Yen (-26.2%)
As of June, market was actually slightly up: +3.09% (56.9 billion Yen). July alone tanked sales hard.

July 2017:

- DQXI + Splatoon 2 = 2.84 million units, 19.8 billion Yen

July and August 2017:

- DQXI + Splatoon 2 = 4 million units, 28 billion Yen

Will be hard for August to compensate for July, so market will most likely still be down Year on Year as of the end of August.

I'd imagine with the SW lineup being so backended this year things will change quickly come the holidays. Pokemon, smash and YW4 are going to move a metric ton of SW this year.

I'd imagine with the SW lineup being so backended this year things will change quickly come the holidays. Pokemon, smash and YW4 are going to move a metric ton of SW this year.
For sure last year in the final quarter we just had Pokemon US / UM & Super Mario Odyssey as releases that broke 1M, outside of that no game broke 500K. Unless I missed some release there were only 8 games released during the final quarter that sold more than 150K. Third parties were totally absent on the Switch and YWB2 was the only major third party game on the 3DS. Overall last year didn't have too many major releases during the final quarter of the year.

Luigi's Mansion is theoretically a big game this year and likely a holiday release but with the rate 3DS software sales collapse it could end another 100-200k seller.

LM2 went on to sell well over 1m units, so LM should've been able to get ~500k... if it wasn't releasing so late. Right now, I'm not sure what the sales potential is... at least it should be benefit from the holiday season.

***

Btw, some Switch stats (worldwide):

- over 1 000 games available as of last week (includes digital, of course)
- over 100 Hamster releases
- over 600 releases in Japan alone (faaaar behind Europe and North America)

Octopath traveler restocks news :p

This afternoon

Very rare restocks, almost nothing

Dorasuta haruki (low quantities)



For now, restocks are rare for this week, it seems the worst week, will Sunday be able to save this week? We'll see tomorrow :)

NOE seems to have reversed their stance on Capcom btw. Turns out they distributed the Street Fighter Collection for them and are doing MHGU too.


Nintendo distribution is a definite perk in Europe. It’s not really about needing it or not.

If you’re curious these are the Japanese 3rd party published Switch games NOE has/is handling distribution for that I’m aware of:
  • Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (Capcom)
  • Super Bomberman R (Konami)
  • Lost Sphear (Square Enix)
  • Little Nightmares: Complete Edition (Bandai Namco)
  • Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (Capcom)
  • Harvest Moon: Light of Hope (RSG)
  • Sonic Mania Plus (Sega)
  • Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (Capcom)
  • Dark Souls: Remastered (Bandai Namco)
  • SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy (NISA)
They’ve also done distrubition on lots of western games btw (Skyrim, FIFA, Minecraft, Doom, Wolfenstein, Mario+Rabbids, Just Dance, Rayman Legends, South Park, Rocket League, Overcooked, Payday 2, Runbow, LEGO, Crash, etc, etc). Publishers like EA or Ubisoft certainly don’t “need” it either.
Could you clarify for me where you're finding that SF30TH is being distributed by Nintendo of Europe?

I decided to check against your list, and games like Dragon Quest Builders, Octopath Traveler, Skyrim and Doom are definitely imported by Nintendo of Europe.

But when I look at the following:

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, importer:
CE Europe Ltd
The Metro Building, 3rd Floor, 1 Butterwick, Hammersmith
London W6 8DL

Sonic Mania Plus, importer: Sega Europe

Super Bomberman R, importer: Konami Digital Entertainment

Rayman Legends, importer: Ubisoft Ranger house, Walnut Tree Close, GUILDFORD United Kingdom

Crash Bandicoot Trilogy, importer: Activision Blizzard International BV, Stroombaan 16, 1181 VX Amstelveen, Netherlands

====

I'm finding inconsistencies, so I was just wondering where you found who distributes what?

*If older titles have missed weeks in the Top 30 and are updated, their weekly changes are accumulated from their last appearance. Famitsu Digital Estimates are included up through May 2018.

It has been a hot second since I updated this, so disregard the Total Added and Weekly Change numbers, but they do give an interesting snapshot into what has changed since the end of May.

Road to TGS Week 2:

Previous Weeks:
Week 1: https://www.resetera.com/threads/me...2018-jul-23-jul-29.59229/page-9#post-11089528

Transiruby
Publisher/Developer: Flyhigh Works / Skipmore
Platforms: Switch
Genre: Action Puzzle
Release Window: 2019
Notes:
- This is an eShop game from the developer of Kamiko and Fairune

Captain StarONE
Publisher/Developer: Flyhigh Works / Marumittu
Platforms: Switch (Late port of smartphone game)
Genre: "Tap and Idle"
Release Window: October 2018
Notes:
- This is a late port of a tapping/idling smartphone game

Obake na Fune
Publisher/Developer: Flyhigh Works / KaeruPanda
Platforms: Switch
Genre: Action Puzzle
Release Window: Fall 2018
Notes:
- This is from the developer of 10 Second Run Returns and I assume an eShop title.

Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi with Power-Up Kit
Publisher/Developer: Koei Tecmo
Platforms: PS4, Switch, PC
Genre: Strategy/Simulation
Release Window: Unannounced
Notes:
- This is a very long running niche series from Koe Tecmo.

Memories Off: Innocent Fille
Publisher/Developer: 5pb.
Platforms: PS4, Vita, PC
Genre: Visual Novel
Release Window: Spring 2019
Notes:
- This is an "after-story fan disc".

Nekopara Vol. 2
Publisher/Developer: Neko Works
Platforms: Ps4 / Switch (Late port of PC game)
Genre: Visual Novel
Release Window: Unannounced
Notes:
- It's a game about cat girl maids. Presumably the other two games in the series will also show up at some point.

Let It Die
Publisher/Developer: Gung-Ho / Grasshopper
Platforms: PC (Late port of PS4 game)
Genre: Action
Release Window: Fall 2018
Notes:
- This was presumably done for the global markets after the exclusivity deal ran out.

Hana Saki Work Spring!
Publisher/Developer: Entergram / Saga Planets
Platforms: PS4 (Late port of Vita/Android/PC game)
Genre: Visual Novel
Release Window: November 22nd, 2018
Notes:
- It's a romance visual novel.

Hyakki Castle: Kougi Onmitsu Roku
Publisher/Developer: Happinet
Platforms: PS4 / Switch (Late enhanced port of a PC game)
Genre: Dungeon RPG
Release Window: November 2017
Notes:
- This is a digital game, and an enhanced port of a dungeon RPG that was released on Steam back in November 2017.

Project Echoes
Publisher/Developer: Square Enix
Platforms: iOS / Android
Genre: RPG
Release Window: Unknown
Notes:
- This is one of Square Enix's newest stabs at mobile. It looks a lot like what you might associate with a 3DS tier RPG stylistically with enhanced graphics. It's a little early to judge the potential of this one, but it's definitely aiming to be at least a moderate success, since they're certainly spending more money on this than a lot of the cheapy games they had that failed recently.

Machigai Breaker
Publisher/Developer: liica In.c OKAKICHI
Platforms: iOS / Android
Genre: Quiz RPG
Release Window: September 2018
Notes:
- The creator of Monster Strike (the most successful mobile game in Japanese history), and one time notable Capcom employee Yoshiki Okamoto is releasing a new mobile game, this time with a new studio and publisher. I would definitely, most assuredly not suggest expecting anything even remotely like Monster Strike's success out of this, especially given that I've never even heard of this publisher before. That said, Quiz RPG itself used to be very popular in Japan, so there's probably a potential audience for a high end game ni that market. That said, I wouldn't expect this to be that game.

CYBERCELL: FLUX
Publisher/Developer: UBeeJoy
Platforms: iOS / Android
Genre: Strategy Card Game
Release Window: Unannounced
Notes:
- This is from the company mostly known for Law of Creation, IIRC. This is probably pretty small potatoes stuff.

Libra of Precatus
Publisher/Developer: Fuji Games
Platforms: iOS / Android
Genre: Tower Defense RPG
Release Window: Fall 2018
Notes:
- This is the newest game from the people who made the moderately successful games The Alchemist Code and Phantom of the Kill. The setting is steampunk, but instead of Victorian London, it seems to be set in Meiji Restoration Japan.

Ikemen Live: A Love Song in a Songless World
Publisher/Developer: Cybird
Platforms: iOS / Android
Genre: Otome Music Game
Release Window: August 16th
Notes:
- This is the newest entry in the Ikemen series. There's kind of a gold rush on making high production value rhythm game starring pretty men since everyone sees the giant pile of cash available here. Cybird is a real company and has had a fair amount of success with this type of game before.

Thoughts On This Week:
- This is probably not news to a lot of people in here, but I didn't realize there was a publisher named Flyhigh Works specializing in bringing small Japanese indie games to Switch.
- There seemed to be a variety of smaller to moderate mobile unveils this week from mid-sized success companies. There was also a game from Square Enix that I can't quite fully wrap my head around yet in terms of success potential, outside of it being higher effort than a lot of their recent smaller stuff.
- Most of the rest of week was ports, visual novels, and niche stuff. Not shocking for how early we are in the process, mind.
- Side Note: There were no new games fully announced at EVO, though we will be getting at least one new (well, probably an iterative release) Arc System Works Guilty Gear game soon.

This is probably not news to a lot of people in here, but I didn't realize there was a publisher named Flyhigh Works specializing in bringing small Japanese indie games to Switch.
You can find out more from here:

https://www.resetera.com/threads/so...rding-kamiko-sequel-switch-future-plans.1131/

As far as I know, people are always thinking Circle is Flyhigh Works, Flyhigh Works is Circle. We are okay with that as it is very clear that we want to make the developers happy. We want to use our record to create a successful reputation in Japan but we don’t want to use two labels in one region. That’s why we keep Flyhigh Works in Japan and most of the Western countries are by Circle.

Could you clarify for me where you're finding that SF30TH is being distributed by Nintendo of Europe?

I decided to check against your list, and games like Dragon Quest Builders, Octopath Traveler, Skyrim and Doom are definitely imported by Nintendo of Europe.

But when I look at the following:

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, importer:
CE Europe Ltd
The Metro Building, 3rd Floor, 1 Butterwick, Hammersmith
London W6 8DL

Sonic Mania Plus, importer: Sega Europe

Super Bomberman R, importer: Konami Digital Entertainment

Rayman Legends, importer: Ubisoft Ranger house, Walnut Tree Close, GUILDFORD United Kingdom

Crash Bandicoot Trilogy, importer: Activision Blizzard International BV, Stroombaan 16, 1181 VX Amstelveen, Netherlands

====

I'm finding inconsistencies, so I was just wondering where you found who distributes what?
Yeah, I may be wrong on this. I was looking at Nintendo’s UK online store (not eShop) which only carries Nintendo published or distributed games for 3DS, DS, Wii U and Wii so I assumed it was consistent for Switch but perhaps they opened that up. Their US online store only carries Nintendo publushed or distributed games across all platforms as well (Switch included, USF2 being the only 3rd party game which NOA did distribute for Capcom). The contintental European stores definitely carry other 3rd party software but they’re also branded differently (MyNintendo Store) like Japan.

Okay.

I was going off of the back cover of physical games that say who the importer is.

oh. why was OoT cheaper in comparison? Just priced lower?
Ocarina of Time came out 2,5 years later. Super Mario 64 was only 8 MB comparing to the 32 of Ocarina of Time but the initial wave of 1996 releases were all priced at 9.800 yen. Prices started dropping from 1997.

Why is s hard for Square-Enix keep up with the demand?
Cartridges take a while to make and small batch cartridges are t going to get manufacturing priority.

They also really don’t want to make overstock and burn a ton of money.

Also, why no one at Japanese media is questioning them about it?
The way games media works in Japan involves such things as “Mail in all the questions and answers from your interview to the publisher for approval and corporate editing”, so there’s not going to be a Japanese media question that ever asks anything beyond the softest of soft questions.

There also aren’t very many publications comparatively, so the handful that exist all follow these rules to avoid getting blackballed.

Its been over a month since the game was released.
They’re ordering and shipping small batches out every so often.

They’re not sure what the actual demand is among those who won’t go digital, so they do conservative orders each time, which each take a while.

Small shipments is the result of completely miscalculating demand, not being conservative.

Since they had no back up plan now they get emergency prints and possibly missed sales of Obon.

This definitely seems more of an issue with not having at all done proper forecast on demand, and now being stuck with low-priority/volume emergency cart allocations.

Being in queue with proper forecasting will get you what you need AND backups, but being completely out of the loop on the demand leads to you being in this position. Basically really bad forecasting and understanding of the demand for the game, so a total misread of the market.

in their defense, they didn't have any reason to think it was going to be any other way.

RPGs sales normally do drop from a cliff after 1st week.

If you add that it was a new IP, that it wasn't as edgy or AAA-looking as a Final Fantasy and on new, kinda unproven hardware, then it's no surprise we're here.

I get the feeling they don't mind that much, it's like they went into the whole thing thinking "I want my 100k and be done, that's all"

There were signs early on that the interest was high. They simply misread the market for an old-nostalgia driven jRPG.

Even if SE didnt prepare themselves at the begining... its been a freaking whole month since the game was released and the situation havent improved at all. What are they doing there? Sitting and watching all these lost sales?

When Splatoon was driving Wii U sales in Japan Nintendo took programmed shipments from next months trying to satisfy the demand there was at the moment. Since Wii U production was already low and it would be extremely costly and risky to increase it the system suffered from long shortage afterwards.

It's not very different with what has happened with Octopath Traveler.

ok so what are everyone's bets this will turn into an evergreen*?

I'd say yes.

Why? cause games like Zelda and Mario Odyssey have had absolutely no business staying in the top 20 for a year (or half of it), and yet there they are.

I see no reason why Octopath should behave differently.

(*let's call an evergreen a game that stays in the Top 20 til at least January 1st 2019)

given it's a single player rpg with no extended play value (DLC, multiplayer), once this hits the used shops, it's all over.

though, weirdly enough, there may not even be enough used copies to satisfy demand. so who knows
