MonHun is risky because having a character in a fighting game unless the character in question is down right broken wouldn't effect you, since you obviously prioritized someone else to unlock. While skipping certain aspects of MonHun because of money would piss people off
I think that's basically what we expect as Niro and I outlined above. The curiosity was elsewhere on whether the current MH4U DLC practices were Capcoms doing or Nintendos... Either way it worked out well for both though.
Thanks for the answers. Really interested about what will happen in the coming years.

  1. [WiiU] Yoshi Woolly World - 22pt
Really don't know what to think about Yoshi's. Yesterday at COMG! Ishikawa they had some copies left, so within three days we should know going by MC numbers how it did. Speaking about sales, I would say a little bit under 50k. There's propably a Mario Party 10 situation here.

It will likely enjoy a bit of a boost from Obon and, oddly enough, any more legs on Splatoon as people who buy the console/game will be interested in more fresh software and Yoshi is cheap.

That said, this does bring up an interesting point. A lot of Nintendo's older franchises (outside of Kirby on the 3DS) are not doing as well as they once did or never did, really, but all the same they have some of the strongest, if not the strongest, IPs on the market today, many of which are actually "new" to either existence or just prominence. I wonder if moving forward to the NX we won't see a bit of a slow down on these older franchises, like Yoshi, in lieu of more spin-offs of the popular titles or just new games/IP entirely.

For instance, I expect Animal Crossing's next title to be at or near launch of NX. Fire Emblem's next title within a year or two. And so on.

Going by TSUTAYA ranking it was really a flop. Maybe 30k if it's lucky, damn!

Hope you are right and it has some legs for Obon.
Given the YSO predictions, 30k isn't unexpected. These types of software just don't do well unless its the holidays. See comparisons between Captain Toad and Kirby:RC.

30k is also about where YSO expected Batman...

Does the MC White Pages 2014 include any info regarding accessory sales by the way? Like controllers, camera etc..


Another fun read, thanks!

Side question:

Never have thought about this before, but does Dengeki include bundled software in these figures?
If they count it in the Top 50, it should be included in the total numbers as well.

Just Amiibo and New 3DS faceplates top 10.
I'm sure the others accessories are tracked too, but is shared only for suscribers.

Yeah. Seeing Yoshi so low does make one fear that it will be a flop.
Lets hope it will surprise us... or at least sell in the long run

I'm going to bet between Yoshi's standard SKU and the SKU that includes the Amiibo, it'll sell around 45, 50k. Pretty bad, but it didn't seem to be a very high-budget or heavily-marketed game either.

I do miss Brave Lee;-)

And regarding Touch Battle Tank 3D sales: All I know is the first hit 100,000 well over two years ago but I guess that doesn't help much now!

45,to 50k, huh?

02./00 [3DS] Yoshi’s New Island <ACT> (Nintendo) {2014.07.24} (¥4.936) – 58.285 / NEW

Would not be far from Yoshi’s New Island's opening.... which was also pretty bad

Monday 20th was a national holiday (and the start of summer vacations).
GamesMaya is reporting that Splatoon is still moving hardware.

OMG! I forgot this one. Now came to my mind what Vena said about some Nintendo franchises not doing as well as they once did.
I don't think Yoshi was ever a strong franchise, really. Its a budget franchise with friendly aesthetics but its old and worn. I think he needs to be retired from stand-alone games, honestly.

Captain Toad is a much more fresh spin-off IP and ISN'T a 2D platformer.

Quick question guys.

Do the three trackers include bundle sales in their numbers? Do we know what bundles have been tracked and what bundles haven't been tracked? Any actual examples that can be provided?

Cheers

Just checked that myself... with google translate. With the expected result
"Tomorrow will be - in the experience meeting of TC "Fire am Bourem 0".
Monday, July 20, 2015
If you feel you have become suddenly hot at once, "the rainy season"
It is the welcome of me sunny, but also will be troublesome to go outside the "hot Ignore" to here.
Was Irasshai finally out customers Become a night.

We will do with our cooperation towards the secretariat the experience meeting "Fire Emblem 0" from o'clock tomorrow 21 (Tuesday) evening 6 to 8:00.
Of course, people say "I have already done" and "I want to play against people who are doing" is also welcome. Free to play duel space are also available.
I there just be careful because a little shorter time than usual.

WiiU "Splatoon" has led the body.
It stands out the purchase of more of the young couple.
http://gamesmaya.blog98.fc2.com/blog-entry-2858.html

Google translate never disappoints

Guess "Fire Emblem 0" is actually fire emblem cipher ? The trading card game having a meeting / experience?
And Splatoon is bought by young couples?

Hm, wonder what still moving hardware means.

Since it's baseline without splatoon was like 4-6k, it could be
- Wii U hardware is still decreasing at 1-2k per week. Still counts as "moving"
- The hardware finally held
- The hardware went up.

I'm tempted to go with option A since I'm pessimistic but it's a holiday too apparently...

why hasn't nintendo already announced an animated splatoon television show?
Such a thing, whether or not planned, would take time to materialize. You can't just snap your fingers, hire an animation studio, and produce an anime.
