Tsutaya's report:

- Jikkyou Powerful Baseball 2014 sold better than expected.
- Monster Hunter 4G and New 3DS continued with good sales.

Jikkyou Powerful Baseball 2014 is sold out (both versions) 品切れ中


I'm still seeing urgent shipments for New 3DS XL.

----

Are you sure the bundle is limited in 300 copies? It seems too promoted for such limited number.

Someone should probably make a thread for the Nintendo results

Maybe Nirolak will break it out

Seems a fairly good quarter overall, not sure how to qualify Wii U shipments though, seem low but well it's the wii u

Looks to be so much better for Nintendo when compared last year. That huge reduction in operating loss shows stronger performance as compared to last year's. Should be interesting to see if they can make a net operating profit for the rest of the year with N3DS release and the baggage of Wii U's loss reduced.

Hyrule Warriors Extreme for 4DS

Including all the DLC and new content.
It could be..I still hope for a Wii U sequel. And it could even be both, if NintendOS is what we are expecting.

Do you see MK8 clearing a million now that it's being bundled?
now that it is bundled, yes.

Koei Tecmo earnings Q&A: http://www.famitsu.com/news/201410/28064544.html#page02

There's a question about Hyrule Warriors' performance, where they answer that they can't outright say if it has surpassed the 500k goal because Nintendo is responsible for overseas publishing, but they mention Japanese sales were in line with what was expected but overseas sales are above expectations, so much so they can even hope for even higher sales outside Japan due to more shipments in the second half of the fiscal year.
good to know about Zelda Musou. I like the game, I hope for a sequel. And if the partnerships succeeds, maybe we could hope to see also a Fire Emblem mosou (Nintendo is open to FE partnership, if FE x SMT is real, while Koei is open to other cross activities, as DQHeroes testifies)

do you believe wii u won't sell 320k before the end of January to let MK8 becoming milion seller? Maybe even before the end of the year, it's clear that this winter holiday Nintendo is pushing Wii U (Smash, MK8 bundle, Amiboo) and not 3DS (Level 5 says thank you)
And still I believe that the N3DS launch and Smash 3DS version, and Pokemon still only on 3DS will overshadow the Wii U a lot, so Nintendo is overshadowing itself LOL

About YW2.5:

Already posted? it seems that it will really be big.

I wonder if L5 will really not setup any event this year, to showcase their new experiments/IPs

GungHo earnings release: http://www.gungho.co.jp/ir/uploads/irk20141029_1.pdf

- Still making a lot of money, although the growth rate is slowing down.
- There are 62.48 million smartphone contracts in Japan, which is now the majority, 50.3% of all phones
- Puzzle and Dragons has been downloaded 31 million times, half of that.

And with all that money, they have bought some American smartphone games company: PlayPhone. I think it's this one: http://www.playphone.com/about

Tsutaya's report:

- The Evil Within sold less than it was expected. It doesn't mean it sold bad, but it had a bigger shipment.
- Jikkyou Powerful Baseball 2014 sold better than expected.
- Monster Hunter 4G and New 3DS continued with good sales.
I guess this confirms what Amazon already offering 40% discount on the PS4 version suggested.

Unless both Amazon and Tsutaya were the only places that miscalculated demand...

I'm talking about winter holidays, not Q4 2014

Nintendo is clearly focusing on Wii U for December, 3DS was pushed in the latest weeks
and I don't understand why MK8 bundle would not sell, Smash and MK8 are the perfect titles for a family or whatever friends party

Good. It means that MH3G sold on par (if not more) than MH3 in the West.
Monster Hunter 3G shipments in Japan must be around 1,6 million (budget version is not included) so that's around 900.000 units in the West.

Monster Hunter 3 shipped 1,9 million units worldwide, going by Famitsu or Media Create its Japanese shipments were around 1,1 million. At most, its western sales didn't exceed 800.000 units.

P.S. Japanese numbers will be up in just 15 minutes.

You forgetting the Wii U version, MH3G/U sold way more than MH3 in the west.
You're right.

By the way, now I remember that Capcom expects Monster Hunter 4G to shift 3,9 million units during this fiscal year. At this point, I can't see it getting past 3 million in Japan and that's assuming that it will receive a big push during this holiday season. To meet their forecast, Capcom will need to nearly ship a million units in the West, this is starting to look unlikely.

Youkai Watch 2 needs to sell 23 757 units/week to reach 3m before the end of the year.
Roughly 30k/ week to do so before YW2.5.
