Good stuff - hopefully this means that the translation for CS3 can happen faster? If at all possible.

Great games

Not my favorite narrative in the series so far though :/

Either way I hope it means they keep making more I just hope they elevate the writing back to TiTS levels again

More than deserved. TitS 1/2 were brilliant and worth the wait, I'm getting near the end of Steel 1 now and will follow up with 2 immediately. These games cannot get too much recognition.

Pretty much the only turn-based RPGs I enjoy anymore (never touched Persona, will with 5). Well deserved.

Speaking of which, said report also officially confirms that Cold Steel 3 is targeting to be released by September 2017. Barring any delay, September 2017 is the release window for CS3.

Awesome, good thing these games sell well. Really loved the first game, planning on picking up the second one somewhere after its release in Europe (playing two FF games first, so sadly it has to wait its turn for now).

400k WW for CS1&2? That's way more than I expected. Really liked them both despite their shortcomings and I hope CS3 make major improvements.

Pretty much the only series that manages to make the whole Special High School Kids stuff work outside of Persona (and just barely at that) these days, so glad it is doing well.

Also, Falcom is good for the fiscal year that ended in September 2016 with 1,4 billion yen in sales and 386 million yen in net income, if I'm not screwing up that japanese report. That is a drop of 7% and 15% from last year, but they are targeting a 30% net income increase for the new fiscal year, with the Sen no Kiseki III release (also the PS4 port of Ys VIII).

Nice.

I already bought Colda Steel but I'm waiting for Third, Zero and Azure to drop before playing it.

Glad to hear it. I started Trails in the Sky in September and I'm now about 60% into SC. GAF, you were right about this franchise. You were so right. I'm so enthralled I'm even running a playthrough topic series, but alas, it's elsewhere on the net. Still, i am so hyped that these games are doing well. I've found a new top-tier saga and I love that there's more to come.

Kiseki years are $$$ years. =)

Nice to see the figures. Is there a regional split/format split?

I guess I contributed to 3 of those - bought CSI on Vita and PS3 and CSII on Vita.

Very nice and well deserved. CSII is very high on my GoTY charts right now...


You know what you need to do now Falcom


Localize the Ao/Zero games so we can play through the story from across the border!

A lot of the 400k sales outside Japan must come from Asian market also, the span between the Japanese and Asian release is very short and they are even localized in chinese.

Currently playing CS1 and I should buy CS II soon. The wait for CS III though, will be a pain.

Nice. Played through Cold Steel, will get to Cold Steel 2 next year. Likely will be my final PS3 game before it gets boxed up.

You finished FC but didn't want to play SC on release date? Is such a thing even possible?

I booted up SC last month immediately after finishing FC and writing roughly seven thousand words on its sterling conclusion.

I had a mild anxiety arrack just thinking about all the rest of you, who waited years.

Nice, looks like we're doing our part too

CS3 can't come quick enough
The bulk of these ww sales are most likely coming from the Asian releases, actually.

My hair turning grey can be attributed a 100% to me waiting for SC's release. :mad:

Release date of The3rd and confirmation for Zero & Ao please
The Third is a semi-confirmation of Zero & Ao in itself as XSeed has said in the past that they possibly wouldn't do Third if they also didn't intend to localize Zero & Ao.

Would love to try these but no ps3/vita/ps now. Good to hear it's doing well though, we need more niche titles to do well!

They are all tied together I really hope that we get the stories from Crossbell that ties into CS1/2/3. IT would make all the sense in the word to do so, surely they would sell...
