[3DS] Kirby: Planet Robobot - 20%
Was about to say "seems low". Then I remembered Nintendo usually sell better during the week-end (not to mention today's the start of the Golden Week, so Nintendo must've shipped a lot of units).

Then again, I agree with YSO in that FW will see a noticeable drop for this one, compared to Triple Deluxe. The key will be GW sales.

The first shipment should be around 250k - 300k. The key won't be only Golden Week but its legs. Triple Deluxe almost did x4 its first week, so this game should be easily above 450k at the end of the year.

------------

Now, there is a game that is climbing the charts on Rakuten, is Xenoblade Chronicles X. It's not related to promotions or anything, it's just a price drop. 70% off, and its price is around 2.400yen.

Right, it's true that KTD had long legs. With the summer holidays a couple of months later, should have respectable sales by September.

By the way, Yo-kai Watch 3 x FFXIV collab. announced:

- Chocobonyan and Mooglinyan in YW3

- 13 Yo-kai as minion/equipment + Whisper mount in FFXIV

you've said it so many times already that I'm starting to think you're really wishing for it to bomb.

The first DQH wasn't particularly good, even by Omega Force standards, so yeah, the novelty of playing your favourite DQ characters in an action game can only carry you so far.

After this...

I don't think anyone is susprised by this...

So that's their plan to compensate for Wii U sales, heh.

By the way, Splatoon Koshien 2017 announced too. Finals in February 2017... definitely expecting some sort of Splatoon NX announcement there.

Don't think it will happen, but Kimishima should start thinking about revising Wii U shipments in Japan to meet the demand, ~300k for the entire fiscal year it's really a joke. Those Splatoon amiibo gonna blow the whole country, if you ask me.
500k forecast for FY isn't enough for Japan, not for entire world. I don't know how is possible they stick to this plan with NX losing these holidays.

A very good second week for Kirby should be expected since the word of mouth has been pretty good so far, most people say that is much better than Triple Deluxe.

Not too surprising. Still. The more Splatoon stuff , the better.
I admit. Will probably get the Callie and Marie ones

By the way, Splatoon Koshien 2017 announced too. Finals in February 2017... definitely expecting some sort of Splatoon NX announcement there.
Same. If it's gonna happen. It would be a good place to announce it.
or at least show more of it if announced before that

That's at least good to hear. Lets hope Kirby does well even if it starts slower.

"upset"

This stuff really isn't that serious lol.

Intentionally posting to provoke that sort of reaction says quite a bit though.

When someone follows what I say only for specific games on specific systems of course it says quite a bit.
I shouldn't even reply to this.

I don't follow you about any game and I'm not upset, I just read the thread every week because I find it interesting and I noticed you've repeated that line at various times, I guess with the same motivation that you feel like you need to throw a jab at that stupid 90% digital meme every other week too. Whatever floats your boat, I'm not planning on derailing the thread any longer.

We compare apples to oranges but if YSO predictions aren't way off and Kirby sales come close to them the previous game that was released at Golden Week period and had similar hold was Mario Party 9 back in 2012.

The Nathan Drake Collection ended overshipped and the new Uncharted is premium priced so we are likely looking at a Dark Souls III situation with stabilized or declined sales.

180k - 200k LTD for 4 means Uncharted has peaked at 3.

As for the upcoming big sellers I'm almost sure YW has also peaked and find its roof at ~3m.

Pokemon will be more interesting to watch since it looks to rise again at popularity this year.

And do you think it won't beat the third entry? Maybe adding the "The Best" versions it could, though.

The Yo-Kai/Pokémon binomy will be pretty interesting this year, since this third entry is focused on the updates and giving the game the chance to last longer than other entries.

Uncharted 4 will beat the 3rd entry opening week and ltd imo. 150 to 160k opening would be my guess

Best versions behave like legs for established franchises. They tend to sell less and sells with new entries.

Uncharted has a declining rise when you add all versions

160k -> 195k -> 210k

There isn't any reason for 4 to change the pattern, stabilization is the expected.

Were Yo-kai 2's legs hurt by Shinuchi? That sold a ton at Christmas, which probably hurt 2's legs a little. Yo-kai 3 might be able to surpass 2 if there isn't a third version.

Rakuten Books Ranking Week 16, 2016 (Apr 11 - Apr 17)


*Note: Games listed on the Rakuten Books Pre-Orders Ranking are counted as net sales, so it might possibly affect the games listed on the Rakuten Books Sales Ranking. It is expected anyone interested, to look at the previous rankings to make himself a better idea of the actual sales.
 
So, finally Golden Week has begun and obviously these holidays mean Nintendo.
There were shipments of Wii U, very few units. There are restrictions at the time of buying one, as a total cash payment (not only to buy also to pre-order). Prices are getting higher, even at retail.
As has been said, Kirby sold better than expectations. There are more units on shelves, of course, but it sold considerably well after its launch.
Looks like Uncharted gonna have a good opening week as well.

I doubt Kirby is selling better than expectations, but according to retailers expectations. You only need to take a look at the shipment to realize that retailers were expecting a good first and second week.

Probably is more accurated to say that it's selling better than some gaf members expectations that were based on Comg pre-orders, ignoring that Kirby sells well during holidays and pre-orders aren't that important for this type of game.

The Wii U price raise saga continues.

Yeah, I should have to add that "retailers" to my wording. But that slow start at 20% and the progressive improvements will surely end on being above that 120k expectations by YSO. That is what I wanted to express.

Star Ocean already below 2k
Probably won't even reach 150k in Japan right?

So sad. Maybe if the game sold 500k worldwide a SO VI could happen (5-6 years from now), but I can't see the game selling over 350k in the west
You never know, some games sell way better in the west than japan.
