Atleast it would give him an opportunity to create a sequal for a change. He say's he doesn't like sequals, I think its because he never had the chance to make one.

Considering the budget and the sales of Grasshopper's previous games, this is very promising.

Killer 7 sold like 15 copies.

Also, this would mean 300k total lifetime is within reach - which is very good for a "low budget" game like this.

Ummm, this is from Marvelous' president.

thats what i was thinking.

This is Suda 51 game.

Killer 7 sold like 15K, if that, in it's first month.

NMH has absolutely smashed the sales of any of his other games.

The game also received little to no advertising.

It was also a low-budget affair, and will therefore rake in more profits, which will allow money for a future sequal.

This is excellent news, for both Suda and Wii owners.

Its good because its the most succesfull Suda game ever and by a large margin that is. Uncharted got hyped as the saviour of the PS3, I think thats why people called it a bomb while it did pretty well actually.

Actual sold or shipped? Game publishers (at least in financial reports) list shipped numbers and say they are sold. NPD may not be 100% accurate (since they don't track all sales and rely on estimates for the stores they don't track), but it's generally more trustworthy since they only report sales numbers.

It's a sell-through number.

UbiSoft shipped the game in NA and this isn't from UbiSoft.

well in that case lets question EVERY number.

Suddenly it all becomes relative again and 100,000 now means the same thing it did before you started questioning.

Great news if true. Here's the google translation for shits and giggles:

Yesterday the Wii software for "NO MORE HEROES" launch party.
In the domestic market, but not yet shipped 40,000 books in the United States through cell has already exceeded 10 million copies,
European launch in March for orders of 16 million copies together.
Worldwide shipments of 50 million copies can never hope to achieve.
Is a party, entered the Hall of Fame Gold FAMI-savvy editor himself and commended for taking the
RIMASHITA is on the very prime.

Later, the United States now have a new post-age juniors and Sega,
凄くreunion after a long time.

Today is a bank-sponsored lectures and reunion, and then the industry association.

Saturday, the day's events Nakagouti Takashi Masaru you.
Last week, a week ago, but continued without a full rest day,

Didn't he say this is the first Grasshopper IP he'd like to expand upon?

Edit: Found it!
http://next-gen.biz/index.php?option...2&limitstart=2

With all the talent involved in this project, do you feel Travis and his world will go on to other adventures in the future, or new horizons beyond videogames?

We had tremendous support from [publisher] Marvelous when we first presented the idea. It is in part because of the talent of the artists we worked with who created very charismatic designs. I really would like Travis to exist beyond No More Heroes for the Wii. When I first imagined this world, I thought it could be expanded, and when you finish the game you’ll hopefully feel that too. So, if we have the chance, perhaps this might become Grasshopper’s first expanding IP.

I think that if retailers bought 100k copies of the game..its still a success..Suda still gets that money.

Killer 7 was released to a bigger audience (PS2 + GC) and did worse...

This is the game that was supposed to bomb, with little-to-no-advertising

a niche game that has worked entirely on word of mouth sales? I think its doing fan-freaking-tastic

I dont think its too late for Ubi to market it and go for 1 million WW!!! :D

(Oh and while I still am pissed at Ubisoft for the shitty abuse us Wii owners have received this importing this is a HUGE step towards redemption for them!)
