Damn, those Software sales... ouch. Everything is 10k or below, except YW3 (which clearly underperformed).

Not pretty.

Hmmm Yokai.
RIP Uppers and Splatoon bundle.

Edit: I really hope Marvelous/Takaki are just waiting for the next handheld to bring a new Senran Kagura game...

Looked touch and go for a while there, but Level 5 is definitely Level 5'ing all over Yo-Kai Watch.

Yet another huge franchise being throttled by their refusal to let things breathe for more than a second.

Nah they are doing it right - no IP in this day and age will repeat what Pokemon did. They milt the IP as hard as possible in 5 years and move on to the next one. It works for them. Makes them less reliant on a single IP.

They can revisit the IP after a break in the future...like they are doing with Inazuma 11 and Layton.

And they all sold pretty well...sure they could have tried to stretch them out over 5 years but i doubt this would have meant saled...people would get tired at some point anyway and the generation change would have likely resulted in lower sales too.

Pokémon was always the king. No idea why some people thought Yokai Watch was bigger.

If the bigger game of a series (YW2) can barely beat a remake, this doesn't mean is bigger lol.


Moon and Sun gonna be insane! :D
One day they will collaborate on the most 'mon crossover the world has ever seen until 2 years later when they get Digimon in there too for no reason.

Are the Yokai Watch games too repetitive or something? I know that they have pushed an aggressive release system, but Monster Hunter and Pokemon did the same for about a decade with much less drop off.

The problem comes when they don't have a hit IP which eventually will happen.

Thinking about it, to be fair...

2013 - Pokémon Rumble U
2013 - Pokémon X & Y
2014 - Pokémon Battle Trozei
2014 - Pokémon Art Academy
2014 - Band of Thieves & 1000 Pokémon
2014 - Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire
2015 - Pokémon Shuffle
2015 - Pokémon Rumble World
2015 - Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
2015 - Pokémon Picross
2016 - Detective Pikachu
2016 - Pokkén Tournament
2016 - Pokémon Comaster
2016 - Pokémon GO
2016 - Pokémon Sun & Moon

The last few years have been very busy for me :p

That said, this wasn't at the beginning of the franchise. That was more sedate. First 3 years:

1996 - Pokémon Red/Green
1998 - Pokémon Yellow
1998 - Pokémon TCG GB
1998 - Pokémon Stadium
1999 - Pokémon Pinball
1999 - Pokémon Snap
1999 - Retail release of Pokémon Blue
1999 - Pokémon Gold/Silver

It took 3 years & 9 months for Pokémon to increase from 151 Pokémon to 251 Pokémon. In 3 years. Yo-kai Watch has now over 600 Yo-kai

When the fuck are we gonna get Detective Pikachu. So I can then mute it, and voice it over with IASIP Devito lines.

Why doesn't Level5 ever learn their lesson? They're pumping out sequels and spin-offs way too quickly
It's part of their strategy. The kids market is very fickle and what's the hype today, might be uninteresting tomorrow. So, they strike the iron as often as they can while it's hot. Their forecasts apparently seem to indicate that by doing this they are still making more money than when they would be a bit more conservative with their releases even if they kill the franchise in the process. I doubt they anticipated that Yokai Watch 3 would drop this hard, though. That was likely a bitter pill to swallow when they realized this whatever months ago.

Considering both Level-5 and Hino are probably swimming in money, it's hard to claim they are following the wrong approach here. It seems to work well enough for them.

It's probably unlikely they'll find another hit of the scale of Yokai Watch, but if their next multimedia franchises will even be half as big, they'll still make money hand over fist. Being a privately owned company, they also have the freedom to be satisfied with less.
