cause PS4 users are more focused on BloodBorne, Pro Baseball Spirts, One Piece Musou 3 and Disgaea 5


wise decision to publish the game the same day of above games, Marvelous



and plus, the very expensive price, which could be a factor also for Vita in my opinion (8,000yen for PS4 and 7,000yen for Vita FYI)
I suspect Bloodborne is going to kill a lot of PS4 titles coming out that week. Prey slaughtered!

I wasn't aware it is intended to be a mega scoop. A recap of the Level-5 event quite feasibly could relate to the major collaboration title
Dragon Quest XI
that they are working on.

When is the last time one of these scoops lived up to the hype, especially a Nintendo one?

I imagine it will be something obvious like Youkai Watch 3 being a 3DS game.

I saw the scan, and it says that they received a super secret info regarding a big title which they may be able to reveal in next month's issue. They aren't claiming it's a scoop though, so it's probably something that'll be announced earlier.

Ahh in that case it might be NFC/Amiibo for one of the Youkai Watch games. Either that or something like hiska-kun said. If the new DQM is a 3DS game it would make sense to reveal info now that Heroes(and soon Theatrhythm) are out.

Incidentally, am I correct in assuming don't Japanese clocks change next week and when is the start/finish of Japanese Springtime? Thanks!
Japan doesn't use summer time as western countries

for example, now there are +8 hours difference from Europe (Paris,Rome,Berlin) and there will be +7 from next sunday

so you will get sales data one hour later :D

Maybe at the final Monster Hunter Festa '15 event on April 12.
Alright thanks! Didn't expect it could be that soon.

btw, DQMonster being on something else than 3ds would put the final nail in the already squeaky nintendo-dq coffin
There's a nintendo-dq coffin? Thought they were still good despite the DQ heroes (where it's arguably a better choice to be on PS platforms due to the fanbase).

woah! so many potential new info coming in April.

Theatrhythm DQ is out next week, and 3DS already got 5 DQ games, all of them selling really well. What are you talking about? Also, a DQM already exists on mobile and that's the only other platform outside 3DS where the series makes sense to exist.

I thought the first shipment was 50K. Sure it's close so there could be a limited resupply but I honestly wouldn't see shops ordering it for the numbers they are doing
38k according to Media Create I think.

But you're really wrong about how shipments work. There probably would have been a second shipment sometime after the first week + for new bundles as well like MCC. Suggesting there is only 1.5k in channel is ludicrous.

I'd estimate at least more than 60k have been sold in by now if not more.

Thank you for the replies. The link given is forbidden on my end. Also the Famitsu website seems to use /wiiu and /3ds for me. Maybe it is a regional thing.

14./00. [PSV] Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Iki <ADV> (Kaga Create) {2015.03.12} (¥7.538) - 9.879 / NEW
26./00. [PS3] Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Iki <ADV> (Kaga Create) {2015.03.12} (¥8.618)

I guess these numbers aren't too great. I wonder if anyone will localize Higurashi When They Cry soon. We need more VNs in the west!

Vita LE of the game left the chart yesterday with 19 points, so 64 points total.

Anyone remember what Senran Kagura 2 left the chart with? Very interested to see how this game performs... wondering if it'll be the end of the IP for a bit if it relatively underperforms again.

Nah I know how channel allocation works. I just wouldn't buy anymore inventory for something that sell on average 400 units a week nationwide. So in my case it's not that Microsoft couldn't have more shipments I just question who is buying inventory of it at this point.

NIS going PS4/Vita or bust. Also releasing another PS4 game this year.

Nippon Ichi Software’s new titles will be solely for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, according to company president Sohei Shinkawa. Besides Disgaea 5, the company has another PlayStation 4 title due out later this year.

Speaking to 4Gamer.net, Niikawa said most of Nippon Ichi Software’s home console games have shifted over to PlayStation 4 (exclusive rather than multiplatform), with the only PlayStation 3 titles being those they are localizing.

“It’s precisely because nobody else is making that big jump that we think there’s value to be had in setting our sights square on PS4,” Niikawa explained. “As a result, we’ve received support from Sony and are now able to do things like put out commercials. In that respect from a promotional perspective, there are merits to going the route that we have here.”

For Niikawa and his company, though, the decision is also personal and a point of pride as a developer. “The thing is that if we were just constantly putting out games only for old hardware, we’d get outclassed pretty quickly from a technical perspective. We’re a small company, after all,” he conceded. “Going multiplatform in such a way that previous generation hardware is retained means tuning our output relative to the capabilities of that older hardware. That’s not how progress is made and more than anything, it’s just not interesting work for us. We need to be constantly challenged. There are a lot of companies taking a wait-and-see approach with this hardware transition, but if you look at it from the perspective of our customers, they’re not seeing a whole lot of games coming out, which is in turn making them wary to move onto new hardware. It’s our job as game developers to bring that energy to life and make that market a reality. Of course, saying it is one thing and doing is another, but when we made this decision to switch over, we did it because we’re really enthusiastic about helping make that shift happen ourselves.”
Best of luck NIS!

Hey, if Sony forks over 400 million USD or so, I'm sure they could work it out.
Stranger things have happened, although Hell would probably freeze over first.

Capcom seem to be very cosy with Sony lately, giving them Street Fighter V permanent exclusivity, and the defining title of the generation, Deep Down.

Too bad the promotional support doesn't seem to help Disgaea 5...
disgaea 5 coming out during the second wind phase of the ps4 does seem like a mistake, but the release date is there to show that they really couldn't have pushed it back any further given they don't have anything else to make up for it in the fiscal year. a september release, after the ps4 had more japan-focused games in japan, might have been better for the game (so maybe it would open at 40k instead of 20k or lower). right now, it seems there's a distinct possibility that it may be more successful in western markets.

Is Deep Down the defining titles of the generation because it keeps getting delayed?

ho, of course.
Like Dragon Quest XI. And Bayonetta 3. And Half-Life 3.

Every game from now on will be on PS4, because it is the only platform that makes sense.
Obviously.
lol oh boy. DQXI that makes sense to me. That's if they want to give the franchise another push in the west. Especially when you consider how SQ are positioning the PS4 as their go to console this gen. All the talk of people wanting everything on PS4 reminds me of the exact same rhetoric that was being spewed in favour of 3DS in these very threads 1 year or so ago. I guess it made more sense because 3DS was killing the competition, but still. Lets all be friends. Nothing wrong with hoping unannounced games are on your platform of choice!

OT: I'm hoping Digimon s doing well. Haven't really followed the thread but I was hoping for higher initial sales? I'm about 11 hours into the game and I'm delighted with how good it is. Persona + Pokemon w/ Danganronpa Music and a Digimon Story skin. Aw yisss. Really hope it does well for Bandai Namco.

Nice to see Sony helping. The producer's (?) expectations where too high unless he accounted for WW sales. I think Disgaea 3 would be the best case scenario in terms of Japanese sales.

64 is good

They are probably expecting western sales to make up for loses on home market.
Definitely. I do wonder how many sales they get form the West. Its never been disclosed iirc.

the smell of a new DQ platform shift is way stronger than before. Not only DQH signed a first after years, but there are also Hori's sentences about the big screen and the fact that they are entertaining the crowd waiting for DQXI with DQH. Seeing the already announced DQM game landing elsewhere but 3DS would not be a good sign toward further DQ support on 3DS in my opinion.
I could be wrong, we'll see, but also the localization issues for 3DS games in the West don't play a good role in the Nintendo-SE relationship over this franchise imho.

I hear this argument often - but which data suggests that a PS4 DQ would vastly outsell a 3DS DQ title ? Or even a WiiU RPG published/promoted by Nintendo ? I think with DQ 11 the goal was to create a "high end", "console spec" title from the beginning, since there were a bunch of vocal fans hoping for another DQ8 type for RPG for console and its Anniversary title so Horii and co. wanna go all out as long as they still can.


If its hitting only the PS4 its because of the weak competition and the system being the defacto console to own. I expect the 3DS to get another mayor DQ title in addition to the next Monsters title...something like a Remake/Re-imagining of the first DQ trilogy.

I'd like to see some more concrete evidences on this. PS4 has yet to prove to be a jRPG machine in the West. Also, DQ on the most successful platform in the West for jRPGs barely sold a million, and it sold also a million on DS, which was also popular among jRPG fans.
