damn ain't ever seen anyone call a switch port desperation
People complain about SMTV not being multiplat and Persona not being on PC too. I think it's fine, Atlus prefers to focus on exclusives and that is indeed working for them. It's annoying that people still portbeg P5 for Switch.
well in japan the ps4 is on a decline and so is the series. the show is dead in the u.s, they should've done this sooner then later imo
Exactly this.People complain about SMTV not being multiplat and Persona not being on PC too. I think it's fine, Atlus prefers to focus on exclusives and that is indeed working for them. It's annoying that people still portbeg P5 for Switch.
Level 5's case is that they are barely able to release any games (Inazuma Ares is delayed for like a year already), everything is delayed or quietly cancelled and whatever is released has serious problems that they aren't even fixing, YW4 on Switch runs horribly and has like 100 monsters (that they had to force a lot to get to, considering they're counting human characters as monsters), like 500 monsters down from YW3. They're also selling basic stuff like online play as paid DLC.
They're a mess. (also YW1 port for Switch was also called desperation)
The Switch main audience are 20 30somethings and Nintendo directly targeted them with their ads and Zelda. You are a bit out of loop.I don't think is a bad move so namco and Bethesda are stupid by trowing Doom and dark souls on the switch that had zero audience. Maybe the IP is not the same that was years ago but is a risk and maybe can gain the money of the port and make more games in the future for both plataforma.
My main complaint about this maneuver isn't that PS4 is getting Yokai Watch 4, is that they're going into this without any established base at all. They haven't announced the YW1 port going to PS4 either so that's a misstep.
What does L5 even bring to the table? They ran their franchises into the ground.Exactly this.
They're trying to salvage the franchise they milked to the ground as much as they can.
Oh and the mobile game that was doing so well for them? Puni Puni? That's gone down in revenue too.
Normally I'm not one to champion buyouts, but I feel like Level-5 would be way better off if another company bought them up. Not Nintendo, but like Bamco or Square-Enix.
The series is in a horrible decline in Japan.
PS4 and Switch have about the same install base in Japan.
So a series in the decline going multiplat is a bad thing? This makes no sense...
Don’t see many people complaining in the way of a “console warrior”. Level 5 just ran this series into the ground and smashed it under their boot. Multiplat is a good thing, but it is a show that Level5 is trying to do anything to save the series with such a late port after it didn’t sell well initially.
The bad thing is them being so late about it. If they wanted to go multiplat the best thing they could've done with their franchise was to do it all at once. Especially since they aren't beholden to any Nintendo exclusivity deals at all.
You feel rightfully persecuted by Reseteras hivemind, putting the evil conglomorate Nintendo over the lovable underdog Sony, but the idea that Level 5 is missmanaging their IPs isn't something that came up just now.
That doesn't really mean much. Switch software is selling better.
Not really bad, but it's pointless.
One is double the age of the other.
It also would have helped worldwide if localization had been closer to launch. They need to actually localize the damn game.
If they wanted global sales afforded by the PS4's larger base, they better announce the localization coming out the same time as the japan release.
there are tons of ps4 exclusives not funded by sony, you know.
not for long.
They don't. And by the time this comes out, they certainly won't.
It just seems like a bad business decision when there is no one really asking for it on PS4 in Japan, where are the sales going to come from? The only reason to even think about putting it on PS4 (and why not Xbox and PC too) would be for the west but Nintendo publishes the games in the west so who knows on that.
No one is angry.
You should elaborate on your thought process when calling someone or something ignorant
