The DS era will never come back again, no matter who takes the throne.
It was like everyone was playing DS everywhere.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Sad to see these numbers being called beast mode when 3ds used to sell this much on a weekly basis easily
Well the system entered it's 4th year on the market, of course sales will slow down at some point especially when it's been two years since they had a new 3DS version.

Thanks, I meant in Japan, but I appreciate it.

What kind of game is Yokai Watch, and why is it so damn popular?
It's a monster collecting RPG with an associated cartoon and toy line.

Regarding PES, I really expect the new one to also come out on Vita. It's time to drop the PSP version, Vita's doing ok in Japan where the series primarily sells now, and there's basically no competition on the device because EA is just releasing "Legacy Editions" now.
I don't know if the PSP version will be abandoned, due to specific European and South American markets. But I can certainly see a Vita version happening soon for Japan. I'm still surprised it hasn't happened yet.

Btw, what week is this for PES 2014 Blue Samurai? I'd like to make a comparison with 2010 Blue Samurai, but don't remember how many weeks have passed since its release.

It's Pokemon with Japanese folks monsters, probably minus the anus bloodsucking and stuff like that. My understanding is that it has cross-generational appeal. That is to say, it's nostalgic for older folks.

No but Level 5 said they are thinking about it. :(
Likely means it's not coming. That's how I take statements like that now. Level 5 like Square Enix seem to be quite happy with just keeping their games in Japan when it comes to the 3DS. If this game does get a western release I won't be surprised at all if it's not Level 5 releasing it. Instead I expect it published by Nintendo when they need to fill out the line up because one else will localize their own games. Even that is a big if.

Dat Yokai Watch. Also nice to see Freedom Wars doing well too. Good couple of weeks for new IPs in the dedicated handheld space. Good hardware for the superior handhelds too :p

It's even sadder that an average week just for the DS would sell as much as 3DS+Vita did this week. :(
In 2006/most of 2007 yes, but looking at where DS was at this point in 3DS' lifespan? Naw.

well they are. scej is the only one collaborating and releasing vita exclusive games where the vita sells decent.
Oreshika 2 releasing tomorrow making it the last SCEJ Vita game that is coming for the system.

TGS will be interesting to see if they stick to Vita or move over to PS4.

Surprised it got bumped so high. I wonder if YW will have the Pokemon model and have a 3rd version released next year.

I'm curious to how the games are though in relation to Pokemon. Do YW1 and YW2 have the same protagonist? I think it does. Does it take place in the same location as the first one? Are there new mechanics? I would assume there are new monsters.

Did the PSP version of God Eater 2 not get a best re-release?

They better to. I actually want to play it.

Man, Yokai Watch, they sure caught a lightning in a bottle.

That's a very good Vita bump, considering the bundle is not that much special. Or am I missing something?

Feel a fool for doubting the original Yokai which had a moderately weak start in life, but that anime REALLY changed things and its just taken off.

Not much else success like that to go around though.

Thank you :)I think YW2 will joining that club sooner rather than later.

Yes, they have the same protagonist (well, protagonists, since you can be male or female). The areas from the 1st game are in the 2nd, but there's a ton of new areas in the sequel too. There are some new mechanics related to battle and the overworld, as well. There's also ~150 new youkai.

Holy shit @ Yo-Kai Watch.

Pleased at Freedom Wars still doing well, too. Hopefully the patch might give it a few extra sales for people who were still waiting for that.
