I'd say we'd be seeing something closer to bargain bin prices for a while until stock depletes
It's not surprising SV6 is not on Switch atm.Bandai Namco has been supporting the NSW a lot, it is rare seeing Soul Calibur VI still exclusive to PS4, and knowing that after december; the Switch is going to have 2 millions more of players that love fighting games (Just in Japan). Supa Smash- Arms- Xenoverse 2: all of them diferent kind of fighting games, all of them in 3D.
Namco is banking in the West sales? or SC games sells fine in Japan?
I don't play either.
Speaking of which did those PSP versions of Tekken and SoulCalibur work out for them? I remember being surprised in how good they looked for the system even if they were obviously downgraded from the console.
there's a very clear difference in Tekken and Soul Calibur in regards to how they use the engine. Tekken never had a chance, it runs at 720p on the XBO even. SC runs at 1080p on both the XBO and PS4, so there's more leeway for a switch port
I think both of those games were outsourced. Tekken 3DS was made by Arika
PSP and 3DS games are like infinitely cheaper to make than Switch games though.
I don’t think any retailer have will accept a big amounts of a mid tier new IP in this day and date, 300k day one shipment is a fantasy dream no less
This week was so slow that I actually opted to wait until the next weekend to do another update. So far this Road to TGS has not been going well hahaha.
IE delay isn't likely imo. They've been revealing new details and pics on the usual monthly basis for the past few months, and have a big event this week-end. Also, Takara TOMY is releasing some Switch pouches in October (placeholder date, but still suspicious > https://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=sr_nr_n_25?fst=as:off&rh=n:4731380051,k:イナズマイレブン+アレスの天秤&keywords=イナズマイレブン+アレスの天秤&ie=UTF8&qid=1534919491&rnid=2321267051) (that URL, though).I don’t think IE Ares will launch this year.
Level 5 will try to make the possible to launch YW4 in December, even if this means to delay everything else to finish it.
The only missing title I see is DQ Builders 2, but this could be delayed too, and launched in January.
Actually, up to Week 2, Road to TGS 2018 > Road to TGS 2017 in terms of number of games announced (29 v.s. 20). But, so far, we're definitely missing bigger games (just to compare, last year's Road to TGS saw Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Yo-Kai Watch Busters 2 announced in its first two weeks); also, this week has been quite...dire so far (last week was Obon, not counting that one due to companies closing for Holidays).
Pretty sure it's meant to be this Fall.
Simultaneous worldwide release for Dragon Quest? I hihgly doubt it tbh, that'd be quite the megaton. September or maybe June sounds like a better bet for EU/NA.
.....and ? Those aren't Bamco titles.
While they were branded differently both were essentially tweaked ports of Tekken 6 and SCIV respectively. Similar to how PSP Tekken 5 dropped the 5.
Original games sure but not necessarily true for ports. Actually more work likely had to go into those 360/PS3 to PSP/3DS conversions than would for a PS4/XBO to Switch one. Different engines, bigger spec gap, etc. Even DOA5 Vita was likely a bigger hurdle/cost than Tekken 7 or SCVI on Switch would be.
I say the end of October or early November would be ideal timing, as of now there is a wasteland of games releasing in that time frame.
