Okay in Japan and bombed everywhere else - like some many titles. I always wondered why publishers wouldnt price their content lower, when they know that the games will bomb... but at this point they probably dont care, since many games can be ported to mobile plattforms a couple months later.
iOS is going crazy lately. I wonder how well it did on the 3DS?
Yeah, it has exploration which is quite similar to Layton games, with people to talk with and object to examine.
Does it have any exploration like Layton series or just scene-gameplay-scenes etc?
I have this one: 78,201.
We only officially have Japanese numbers.
Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure: 63,714
WTH! Border Break for iOS!!!
i am unable to open the page right now though
I was looking through Sega's IR information just now and it turns out they forecasted just 20k for the US total. D:
Great news! I loved the demo on 3DS, but wasn't able to find it anywhere(did they print like, 1000 copies?!). Looking forward to getting it on iOS.
It's no wonder the game sold out immediately and is so hard to find. To put things in perspective, Panzer Dragoon Saga and Shining Force III shipped more US copies than that.
Definitely. Though I think being on iOS might help out with some of the gyro stuff if they retooled how clunky it was in the original.
Well I guess this could help towards a sequel, an okay game but it has some noticeable issues, like gyro stuff.
I think Rhythm Thief should get more attention, most certainly. It's a flawed game for sure, but it's very fun and has a few SEGA IP cameos in terms of the kinds of rhythm minigames there are.
The thing that puzzles me here is that release was a few months after the one here in Europe, it's like they went out of their way to time the release as awkwardly as possible.
Would have been way smarter releasing it last year on 3DS, at least.
Releasing it the same week as Theatrhythm was just silly. Neither game was going to do great, but for people in the mood for a 3DS rhythm game, Rhythm Thief was not the more alluring option.
