The only negative thing i can see is the duration between the game and the olympic (about 8.5 months). By that time, the market might have a lot of used copies and quite a reduced price for new copies. I wonder why they release the game now, and not wait until next year, like they did with Mario & Sonic Rio (3DS version being released in February 2016, and the WiiU version being released in June 2016, much closer to the actual olympic). I guess they wanted to have the game ready for this holiday season, but still, i think maybe it could be better to release it closer to the olympics.
I can see two reasons why they thought the holiday season made more sense this time around. The first being that the Sonic movie was originally supposed to come out in November as well, and the second that they overestimated the pre-Olympics hype. I don’t blame them. That damn Paprika song has been playing on TV multiple times a day every day in multiple versions sometimes sung by celebrities for a long-ass time. They probably thought they could get healthy sales even far removed from the actual Olympics this time around.

wow at Persona and Ring Fit.
I don't remember my Prediction League stuff but I'm probably off.

Ok for Luigi. It's definitely a wait and see with vouchers and Christmas.


Mario & Sonic is lower than I thought. I thought the game looked a step up and is on Switch so it'd open faster.
Sega is publishing so there is no vouchers correct?
We'll see how legs are.

where's FF15 and Kh3 at currently tho?

I know FF15 crossed 10m a while back
FFXV is around 8.5m and KH3 probably well over 5m since they shipped that at launch

Edit: FFXV should actually be higher than that right now, but not at 10m yet:
On August 7, 2018 they announced 7.7 million units;
On September 7, 2018 they announced 8.1 million units;
On November 8, 2018 they announced 8.4 million units ;
It has probably sold a good amount in 2019 too.

What's it gonna take for a Squeenix game to sell 10m WW? Dragon Quest can't and Final Fantasy is close. I don't think Tomb Raider or Kingdom Hearts can either. Probably need to play around with new I.P.s or let Omega Force do a Dissidia Mosou.

this year really has been all about legs, huh. all of these titles, even the SJRPG that is FE, will go on to more than double their first week if they haven't already. the first three + ring fit will have upwards of a 6x multiplier. Nintendo really knows how to create long-lasting video games

Ouch at the PS4 HW sales. I had hoped it would have held on a bit longer. Hopefully the PS5 can do well out of the gate. I love the Switch but I don't want a one console landscape.

That moment when you read the story prologue in the pause menu and it explicitly says Luigi was free to bring his friends and family, so he immediately told Mario, Peach, and three Toads. Definitely not forgetting anyone, Luigi?
Peach didn't know, Mario should've known, Daisy immediately knew and just decided to wait it out for the next trip.
