Wii U: 4 444 units sold... yup, truly doomed this time, ha ha.

(4 can be read as "death" in Japanese, before anyone quote me because they thought I only realised now the Wii U was doomed :p)

While sad, ZTD isn't surprising (at least to me). We've known that the Zero Escape series does better in the West and not so well in Japan.
 
#16
poor ZTD

for comparison, sales figures for the other ZE games from 2013 (1st week/ltd)


3DS: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward - 7,890 / 17,913
PSV: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward - 6,133 / 15,454

NDS: Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors [Chun Selection] - ?? / 4,714
NDS: Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors - 16,967 / 39,653

How much did VLR and 999 sell?

It's no surprise ZTD sold badly, but it does mean that Uchikoshi might be regulated to not be lead writer any more in games (or regulated to stuff like punch line, I guess).

//Oh, those were posted above me. So ZTD might sell worse than VLR, bummer. At least games budget was most likely very small, outside having lot of well known Japanese voice actors.

Selling 15k or 10k, you gotta wonder if it really makes a difference. Both numbers are more than underwhelming ... and once again it's up to the West to hopefully make up for it.

I do find it super funny that the one VN series that finally managed to make a dent outside of Japan is the one that Japanese players don't particularly care about (well, then again selling 10k in Japan is likely still a lot better than what the usual VN does).

People didn't really regard that as a visual novel, though. It was always sold as an adventure game. VN was still considered a dirty word back when the first AAs released over here.
I think Ace Attorney is closer to Point-n-Click than Visual Novel. It's like Monkey Island...but with Lawyers...in Japa...er...America!

Nobody talks about Vita anymore. It's like it's stuck in limbo between doing well and death.
There's just not a lot to say about it anymore. Nothing is going to propel it to much higher sales, and no successor for it is coming out. The most interesting thing about Vita is a Sony published Microsoft game.

Crazy hold for Coven. 44% in the second week is really solid. Decent numbers for Caligula too.


Oof, not much better.
Eh one wonders if it would have done better had it released later, like after 999 and VLR were released on Steam first.
Keep in mind it released uring the Summer Sale, I can't think of many games released on Steam during such events to have done very well.

Wii U: 4 444 units sold... yup, truly doomed this time, ha ha.

(4 can be read as "death" in Japanese, before anyone quote me because they thought I only realised now the Wii U was doomed :p)
Fun fact, in Godzilla movies when Godzilla plays the role of a destroyer he has 4 toes on each foot, but in the movies where he is a protector fighting other monsters he has 3 toes.

Actually MS had absolutely nothing to do with the Sony versions of Minecraft (all were initially out pre-buyout IIRC even). The IP actually isn't in their name today, it's still under Mojang. The Wii U version though is all-MS.

Expected for ZTD, but I'm sure the game did as it should in the west on 3DS and Vita. SteamSpy number is bad but who ever asked them to bring this series on PC ?

Also I clearly remember a big narrative here about Taiko performing "horribly" on PS Vita because it did 100K.

07./07. [3DS] Taiko no Tatsujin: Don Don! Mystery Adventure <ACT> (Bandai Namco Games) {2016.06.16} (¥4.800) - 7.736 / 51.800 (-34%)

I was commenting mostly on it's sales, but yes you are correct.
