Not yet.

But probably will be in time.
He doesn't have much of a point thought. This just the Zelda audience biting into what they can get, it is after all full of fan service and have "that graphical style" that the core base digs.

Are people buying it for the style of game it is or themes and characters in it?

If KoeiTecmo made an even better game but with Musou characters will the:

"This is the result of developing a game that actually runs well on the console, and it properly marketed.

Statement hold any thruth? After all, we have had games that fit that criteria and yet, sold terribly.

Surprised to see Wii Party U on such a list. And sad to not see Pikmin 3 on the list, since it's a real masterpiece.

the game is impossible to get for me right now, my only option is to get it digital once I buy an external HDD

It seems you haven't played any other Musou games. :p

GTFO, Hyrule Warriors has worse slowdown than all other Musou games I've played even though it's only attempts to run at 30 fps, as opposed to the 60 fps target seen in the rest of the series.

Its selling due to the Zelda name sure.

But Musou games have sold better in Japan than this game will in the USA as musou titles usually appeal to Japan more.

This is the first game since the ps2 era where there has been mass appeal in the west. If we get another western ip/musou cross over like Zelda then I expect it to do as well in the west.

I'm officially obsessed with this game.

Like every fourth or fifth thought in my head is "I want to play Hyrule Warriors"

I bought one of those 1 million copies! Hyrule Warriors was actually the game that made me finally get around to picking up a Wii U, so I guess you could say it was a "system seller" for me, as well...

Do you have to pay more to get the extra characters? Do they come with the disc version? What if I were to buy it on eShop?

Some characters are free while others are paid for and part of the DLC packs. You get Cia, Volga, and Wizzro for free. They were apart of an patch to the game early on. Young Link, Tingle, and True Form Midna are part of DLC packs. The packs also come with different and new weapons for characters as well. Shadow Form Link is available when you buy the Hero of Hyrule pack (which is the season pass). Well Epona is more of a weapon then a character. Everyone else is in the base game. The game with the addition of the three free characters has a total of 14 characters that are playable. The those three might not become available until you be the game though. Some of the others have to be unlocked as well via adventure maps and as the story mode is beat. So I wouldn't worry about buying the packs at first. There is plenty of content on the disc itself.
