Metal Slug Defense (iOS/Android - F2P) reaches 5 million downloads worldwide* in 34 days: http://app.famitsu.com/20140609_389945/

That number shocked me to the point where I thought I was wrong, or a typo happened. 万 = tens of thousands, so 500万 = 5 000 000. The Google Play installation number is between 1 - 5 million, so I guess that figure is correct?! Has the Metal Slug series combined sold 5 million units? I wouldn't think so.

*China not included

edit: erm, I probably should've read the Google Play description:

Souls is mid-sized series, isn't it? Bloodborne being 2015 is notable.

If I were Capcom I wouldn't keep a 4U HD exclusive to Wii U.
While I'd like to get a Wii U version myself, I don't think we'll see a console port at all. I suspect that the Wii U port of 3G was made simply to appeal to the West (console + online), and that the Japanese audience primarily buys late HD ports to supplement the handheld version instead of to replace it. Now we have the portable version outselling the console one in the West and online on the handheld. It's not as necessary for the West now. A PS3 version would presumably lack transfarring and cross-platform multiplayer, so there goes a bunch of the appeal of a supplementary purchase.

Square Enix were serious when they said they weren't going to show Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III. Those games were the highlights of last year's E3 Sony conference and 365 days latter we don't have any updates on them. Also, there was no trace of Capcom.

RIP Japanese video game console industry.

Not to be that guy, but wait for TGS I guess? That said, this E3 has been bad on the front of Japanese games. I guess Nintendo could announce things, but I can't see them announcing anything that would be big.

Is there a remote chance of Resident Evil 7 Wii U? I was thinking it would be shown during Sony's conference, but it was a no show. Maybe it just is not far enough along?
lol

E3 isn't the place outside of FF and KH and we know what's (not) happening with those.

I don't think TGS is the place either.
Iirc once SE showed some FFv13 trailers in January.

This is PS4's most notable game right now (Spring 2015), unless MGSV comes before. I remember Kojima saying it would March 2015 latest so hopefully it does because the game is looking spectacular.

I still don't understand why another Suda 51 and gungho exclusive was announced when their previous exclusive, Lily Bergamo, which is coming out this year, has not been fully revealed.

A game title has never been so apt to describe a situation.
LOL you are so right.
About RE7WiiU: if that happens, I'll sell my WiiU, I promise (translated: it will not happen)
About PS4: it really seems that Bloodborne could be the first "real" Japanese-oriented exclusiv coming to the console, in Spring15, so a long wait, unless TGS will somehow surprise us.

there was MGS and that suda game

granted no idea how popular either is among japanese gamers
MGS is popular (though not new). Bloodborne is mid-tier.

There was nothing else besides Bloodborne really, and another problem is that we have no idea when MGS, FF XV, and KH3 will release. At least Bloodborne is coming Spring 2015.

The announcement was only for US/EU. Japanese press are reporting that there is currently no details on a Japanese release for it.
Huh. No JP release would be surprising IMO, even if it seems like they're mainly (only?) making the console version for the Western market.
