A month between Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2? Not bad Nintendo. This might be one of the better holding periods Wii U has.
I doubt either of those games give the Wii U anything over a 1 week small bump.

Speaking of which so what is Nintendo's 2014 looking like at this point for Wii U?

Just Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta, and Smash?

Based on the title, it's probably a collection of party minigames like Mario Party or whatever, featuring characters created by Fujiko F. Fujio. Probably nothing to get too excited about.

Just those, Captain Toad and Wii Sports Club retail. I still think something like Yoshi or Mario Party might slip in before the end of the year.

Captain Toad and possibly Mario Party 10 if I am not mistaken.

I'm quite positive Nintendo will announce HD titles in the near future for 2014. Still barren though.

On the other hand, 3DS software line-up looks solid (Yokai 2, Pokemon, Smash, Monster Hunter 4, Tales, Yoshi's New Island, etc.)

Well 2015 at least seems like it will be a lot crazier than I thought. Splatoon, Xenoblade, Zelda, Kirby, Star Fox, and Yoshi.

What other titles have a shot at breaking 100k?

What's the translated title?
大集合藤子・F・不二雄キャラクターズ・すこし・ふしぎなドタバタパーティー!!

It's something like "A Large Gathering of Fujiko F Fujio's Characters - A Bit Wondrous Slapstick Party!!"

No chance of it ever leaving Japan/Asia, most western people probably don't know who Doraemon is.

and Captain Toad & Wii Sports Club Retail for the rest of this year.

For third parties, I guess One Piece just released, Pac World, Kamen Battride, and Fatal Frame? Actually Hyrule is actually published by Tecmo in Japan right?

Isn't the Tales title some part of a mobile game....something like that.

So far Atlus has managed to do it twice.

Persona + Blazblue resulted in a game which far exceeded the sales of Blazblue or Guilty Gear.

Persona + Etrian has now resulted in a game which will exceed the sales of EO significantly.

It'll be interesting to see if they can do it again with P4U2 and P4D. P4D is particularly interesting because while it probably doesn't have a chance to exceed the sales of Miku at its prime on PSP, I think there's a good chance for it to exceed the sales of recent Miku games which is pretty much stuck at 150-200k now. If leveraging the Persona brand allows it to surpass the 200k which Miku sold on the Vita, that'll be certainly impressive.
See on paper this is all good. However what does this tell Atlus/SEGA. To keep making Persona spin offs? Or to continue with EO? I hope this is not a frequent thing as it may cause franchise fatigue.

Isn't he getting localized on Nickelodeon or something? I thought I read that somewhere. Whoops; here you go: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-05-09/disney-xd-to-run-doraemon-anime-in-u.s-this-summer

Ltd, sure. I think it'll have a ~100k opening. Am I being pessimistic here?
Project Diva f 2nd had a 160k opening. And the original Project Diva f had the same opening week when it released on Vita in 2012.

I don't think it'd sell 100k fw considering Persona popularity.

And sames devs as the PSP Diva games. The latter games in the series were internally developed by SEGA though.

What is up with SCEJ continually marketing PS4 with westerners in their TV ads: http://youtu.be/nq1LRF5aLyI

I guess it's an admission that the machine has no Japanese games.
Wow that seems like a illogical advertising approach.

Also basically advertises the PS4 as a Fifa only machine
Feels pretty spot on to me.
Dick riding the world cup hype.
Pushing the share functionality.
Trying to push the world wide appeal that works in the west. I refuse to believe that Japanese gets upset/lose interest just because there are "foreigners" in the adds(stupid theory I heard before).

But yes, Japanese perhaps just wants japanese software (not really) but it's the bigger sales market.

Yeah and isn't world cup pretty big event in Japan too? At least if I remember right during last world cup Japanese matches had pretty insane tv ratings.

You could say the same thing about the fighting game. If you told me that p4a would have the highest fw in Japan for a fighting game last gen, I'd laugh at you. And then boom, higher sales than freaking street fighter and tekken. I think P4D could be in a similar situation.

So what do you guys think are the chances of Nintendo announcing a 3DS successor next year are?

With its sales dropping worldwide, slowing down in Japan, and lack of new first party title announcements at E3 except 1, are the chances of it happening high? Nintendo did say that they didn't want any more software droughts so could they be preparing early?

Since I wasn't into gaming for the DS era and the 3DS announcement, is the situation now kind of similar?
