Yup, your prediction is what I used as base.

By the way, previous entries sold (Media Create):

Harvest Moon 3D: A New Beginning (2012): 287.000 units
Story of Seasons (2014): 286.000 units

Looks like Trio of Towns LTD should come close to its predecessors'. Or at least, the drop will not be too big.
FINALLY.T_T One game that does not underperform badly on 3DS.T_T

Now, Marvelous. Give us River King 3DS or at least Rune Factory 5. You know you want it.^_^

I honestly have trouble believing AA6 sold "as planned", when it took it quite a few weeks to even reach Week 1 sales of AA5 (and that's with the bigger promotion push, anime, etc.).

Sad they don't give any actual data, because I'd love to know what they mean by "fair digital download sales"

"fair digital sales"... Ah, the joys of corporate talk!
This however is just sad.T_T I don't really feel that Phoenix Wright had any way of getting bigger anymore here. Capcom should just focus on getting new experience/IP here rather than just sitting on this declining IP.T_T

Maybe another new IP about police or something? I guess the failure of Ghost Trick scared them badly there.T_T

Yep, still seems better than what was said for Dai Gyakuten Saiban though, so as stated before I don't think we have anything to fear regarding the existence of a next entry but it's worrisome for the IP in the mid-long term (5 years from now on).

Here we go. Famitsu's digital have Story of Seasons at only 13k, a number that doesn't match at all with the reports.
Also Ace Attorney 6 "fair digital sales" are just 16k according to Famitsu.

Nintendo is obviously not exiting the home console market.

That's what the Nintendo Mini Classic series is for, after all. :p

Seriously though, based on past statements it wouldn't surprise me if the hybrid isn't the only NX-related hardware Nintendo is considering. In that regard I don't think of a more powerful console, however, but more along the lines of a cheap PSTV style (aka largely based on the same hardware but without battery, screen etc) device that acts as something like a Mario Kart player for people who want the multiplayer, but not the handheld.

One thing that seems certain in any case is that whatever hardware Nintendo might or might not release will be closely enough related so that they don't have to create platform-exclusive software anymore.

Kind of related to that, it's interesting to me that Nintendo traditionally releases quite a few franchises on both handheld and console to great success. But when there's only one line line of hardware, there's no reason for a second NSMB, there's no reason for a second Mario Kart. In response to this, they might release sequels to "once a generation" franchises more frequently, but since these games are largely constant sellers you've got to wonder if that would be really worth it. Point being: It will be interesting to see how Nintendo will fill these gaps (and after the success of Splatoon I'm hopeful that the answer to that will be: a bigger focus on new IPs).

It'll also be interesting to see how it'll affect series like Zelda or 3D Mario, where the console and handheld games are usually different enough that both could theoretically co-exist. A Link Between World wasn't a huge hit, but it's different enough from console-style Zelda that I could imagine Nintendo making another top-down Zelda. In case of 3D Land and 3D World the lines are starting to blur, though. Very different games that yet also appear very similar.

Yep. Assuming nvidia are interested in continuing tegra optimization in the future we should see a long family of systems from a small handheld to a cheap home console.

One more proof that Famitsu digital numbers are not so reliable...

Why would I have an exact timeline and an exact idea of all the products? When have I given the impression that I did? I also don't have an exact idea of the size of Nintendo of America's cafeteria or the number of urinals in their restrooms, but I expect that they do have a cafeteria and urinals in their restrooms.
Sorry, I suspect we're having a regional English communication issue. In my area, when someone makes an implied statement and then it's followed up with something along the lines of "What exactly do you mean?", they're essentially asking "Could you explain that more specifically?"

Hmm.... maybe an example conversation would help.

Person 1: "Wow, can you believe what Mike just did?"
Person 2: "What exactly did he do? And when?"

The generally expected response would be "He went and peed in all the office coffee makers last afternoon!" instead of "At 3:47 PM and 12 seconds Mike began to round the corner near Room 512B and started to turn his head 47 degrees to the left..."

But anyway, what the rest of your post detailed was what I was asking for.

That said, I don't really see the advantage of doing that. NVIDIA releases a new Tegra chip at least every two years, which means you could already sell an upgraded NX system every two years if you wanted (equivalent of the New 3DS/DSi type product), and also simply rip out the screen and battery to sell a cheaper variant similar to a PS TV (this would be more akin to the 2DS line).

If you wanted to get more power out of the NX as is, you could simply include a fan (as it supposedly has) and turn it on when it's plugged into the base station, allowing you to increase the clock speed on the Tegra.

As soon as you go down the route of putting out AMD architecture boxes similar to the other platforms, you've lost the unified platform you were investing in and actually need to make significant technological investments to take full advantage of it and make sure everything is running unless you have a heavy Windows or Android/iOS style operating system layer helping this along, at which point you're eating up a lot of the power associated with a dedicated device.

I honestly have trouble believing AA6 sold "as planned", when it took it quite a few weeks to even reach Week 1 sales of AA5 (and that's with the bigger promotion push, anime, etc.).

Sad they don't give any actual data, because I'd love to know what they mean by "fair digital download sales"

"fair digital sales"... Ah, the joys of corporate talk!
They're only expecting to sell 4 million copies of the new Resident Evil game when they expected 7 million and sold 5-6 million of the last two up front.

They're just baking their slow and steady decline as a company into their projections.

Been thinking about this for a few days but I wonder if the NX's core design will allow them to actually make Spla2oon without actually changing anything about it. Perhaps you can dock it in a way that allows you to still use the handheld as a controller/second screen.

I'm... I'm sorry. Spla2n? Splatwoon?

How long before Nintendo just buys up the talent and licenses out the MH IP for themselves? :p

Also I am going to be very surprised if Nintendo doesn't outright buy or long-term license Momotaro from Konami.

I don't think there's much evidence to suggest that OR/AS has outsold YW2, but there's enough evidence to conclude that they sold on about equal levels. That alone shows that while YW is a huge success for Level5, it's not quite Pokemon. YW2 will likely remain the high point of the franchise, with YW3 looking a step down even though Busters performed very well for a quick spinoff. So we have remakes which sold on par with the highest entry of the franchise, and Sun/Moon is likely to cream YW3 hard.
This was never in doubt even before YW3 or Pokemon Go was released. :)

Yep, still seems better than what was said for Dai Gyakuten Saiban though, so as stated before I don't think we have anything to fear regarding the existence of a next entry but it's worrisome for the IP in the mid-long term (5 years from now on).
Yeah, the franchise isn't going anywhere (this is not Ghost Trick), but it's clear Capcom needs to change their plans. In my opinion, one game per year is just too much, even counting spin-offs. They should go back to one every odd year.

Here we go. Famitsu's digital have Story of Seasons at only 13k, a number that doesn't match at all with the reports.
Also Ace Attorney 6 "fair digital sales" are just 16k according to Famitsu.
Right, so that's what I said... gotta love Capcom's corporate talk, ha ha.

Story of Seasons number is definitely odd, because I doubt Marvelous stuffed the retail channels...

One more proof that Famitsu digital numbers are not so reliable...
Well we've known that for a while already. They're definitely better than nothing (and infinitely more reliable than comgnet and co), but still to be taken with a grain of salt.

I'm not seeing any replacement. Lady Layton is a new Professor Layton sequel/spinoff that looks and plays exactly like the normal series. Layton 7 was a weird experimental idea that had almost nothing to do with Professor Layton. First it was some weird social/exploration town game with a ton of characters, then it was a Werewolf clone. I wouldn't be surprised if it no longer existed as a product, but if so nothing replaced it. For the better!
Sorry to reply to that since it was 2 pages ago but yeah, I misremembered Layton 7 as having the professor in it, and being a bit less about exploration.
I still think they're not really sure where to take the series, and that Lady Layton is kind of experimenting in a way (even if it's obviously super close to the original series).

If you consider the NX a handheld, does that mean you think Nintendo is exiting the console business?
That's my point of view (from eurogamer's article at least).
Or more accurately, pretty close to what Nirolak is saying there:

I would consider them having dropped the home console hardware part of their business, but having kept the home console style software part of their business.

Given they're ultimately not selling you two devices anymore, it's hard for me to envision a world where that revenue stream isn't gone from a business perspective.

Initial shipment was one million, but additional shipment received this past week, makes more than 500k unsold copies (~1.3 million shipped). Retailers are talking about accumulated copies at stores.

How come Mario & Sonic is selling that much? Is it because the olympics has started? I don't remember Sochii doing these numbers, or am I wrong?
It is Mario and Sonic lol. And maybe the Zika news makes more people exposed to this upcoming Olympic more.^_^


Seriously though, i feel that this new Mario and Sonic actually is quite a good product with many good sports inside. So that can be one of the reason.^_^

P&D is still performing well on mobile right? I don't get why they're going for round 3 on the 3DS when Mario couldn't prevent the last entry from collapsing.

While they are still holding well in mobile, they are slipping up in their popularity there. Which is why they release anime and hoped that it will be able to increase their title mindshare more here. Releasing the game is also one of those project there.^_^

Or that shipped numbers don't equal sold.
The Story of Season numbers don't add, shipped or sold. And it's not the first time Famitsu gives wrong digital numbers.

And my oh my, Yokai in the bomba bins soon? I hope not and that the title has some legs. I don't think the new Puzzle & Dragons game will be so lucky... :|

I do remember Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney being undershippped/underperforming, but no other games comes to mind right now.

About Yo-kai Watch 3, I admit the second shipment doesn't really make sense, but I don't think retailers will have trouble selling the extra units. Not gonna happen by next week, though, that's for sure.

...

Yeah, I really don't understand why retailers were ok with that extra shipment. Are they expecting stronger sales during the Summer holidays (started last week) or something?

Yup, writing was on the wall for this one. A damn pity. Nothing on the expected shipment?

I'd assume retailers ordered a second shipment before release, not expecting that YW3 would struggle to sell through its initial shipment quickly.

The Summer Olympics are much bigger than the Winter Olympics. And with the Olympics coming to Tokyo in 2020, nationally there's been a lot of focus on them for the past year or so.

Not a Japan news, but something should be interesting since we talk about Pokémon...

In Italy, Pokémon Moon and Sun pre orders are the biggest in the history of the series.

In the month of July (Not really a whole month but 3 weeks) Pokémon games and 3DS hardware increased by respectively 59% and 33%.

Increased since 4 July 2016 to 24 July 2016:

01. Pokémon Alpha Sapphire + 71%
02. Pokémon Omega Ruby + 69%
03. Pokémon X + 52%
04. Pokémon Y + 89%
05. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon + 8%
Those 5 games +60%

3DS hardware + 33%


EDIT: Pokémon GO surely helped a lot but we already knew it...

What is World's 5 Longest minutes about? Thought that looked like some Half-Minute Hero spinoff at first, but since it's from NIS...

Is that train game on the Wii some form of running joke in Japan? I see it randomly pop up in Media Create threads from time to time.

It looks like the Pokemon VC games are beating YW3. I feel like digitally YW3 is very low in sales. Pokemon VC could only come back with a small uprising because of Pokemon Go.
