Ouch... I'd love to know what happened here. I doubt the EOV announcement is responsible, and first EOU was well-received.

Indeed. I thought it is going to hit at least 90+k?

Maybe because it is releasing this time with Yokai Watch and Pokemon both Rpg style of game?

Terrible software all around, especially so for Phantasy Star Nova. Was kinda expecting EO2 to do slightly better too.

Does NIS even break even from that ecchi Blacksmith game?

PS Nova did pretty poorly. Even considering "lowered expectations" that's a poor start for a core RPG from a popular franchise. I think 150-200k would still be disappointing but closer to expectations.

EO Untold 2 might be an indication of even hardcore fans getting a bit tired of regular entries. It's the lowest opening since the first game - which was severely undershipped. All other titles since opened in the 80-90k+ range. This is the first time it has had a big dip like this. Maybe people already got their EO itch this year from Persona Q? Might have been a mistake to have two in one year.

04./00. [PSV] Fate/Hollow Ataraxia # <ADV> (Kadokawa Games) {2014.11.27} (¥6.480) - 53.979 / NEW

Great numbers for an enhanced VN port. The anime effect is real
And PS Nova only manages to do twice of this. I wasn't feeling the hype for this game at all but I haven expected at least 150k.

I feel like it wasn't different enough from PSO2, which could be part of the problem.

PS Nova did pretty poorly. Even considering "lowered expectations" that's a poor start for a core RPG from a popular franchise. I think 150-200k would still be disappointing but closer to expectations.

Oh yeah, i just remembered, Persona Q is also released this year. Maybe thats the reason? As for my own personal experience, i would love quite a long break from each title as it can be quite heavy playing two Classic Dungeon Crawling game immediately.

Wow @ PSN; worse than everyone's expectations.

03./00. [3DS] Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Knight of Fafnir <RPG> (Atlus) {2014.11.27} (¥6.458) - 59.531 / NEW

Ouch... I'd love to know what happened here. I doubt the EOV announcement is responsible, and first EOU was well-received.
Indeed. Everything pointed out to a similar, if not bigger, debut.

I am on Duckroll stand here. They need to give the series some break here. After all, PQ is released this year. Not many people is able to eat up two Etrian style game in a year.

I suspect the core Etrian Odyssey audience wasn't too thrilled with the first Untold entry and that's impacting sales for the second. But if the the sales for the next mainline one also come up short, that'll be a good indicator of franchise fatigue.

Indeed. I thought it is going to hit at least 90+k?

Maybe because it is releasing this time with Yokai Watch and Pokemon both Rpg style of game?
I think too many similar games recently (EOU last year, Persona Q) + much busier period of the year.

Not worried about the series, but I still hope Atlus will step down a bit from EO games after the mystery dungeon. Hope EOV doesn't come out before early 2016.

I definitely think it's a huge factor. The core gameplay is just so similar that it's hard to imagine any dedicated EO fan skipping PQ. Considering how well PQ sold, it was really the best of both worlds - it had something for EO fans and something for Persona fans, and it wasn't a remake like this is.

They should probably have released this in March or April 2015 at the earliest.

I thought this could have been actually a reinforcing factor: people that never played an EO game might be attracted by the series, and then buy th next entry.

It is also the first time an EO game is releasing before holidays, so we will see how it performs in Decemeber; it should have little more legs than usual.

I'm not exactly surprised about EOU2's numbers. The way Atlus is milking the series currently it was only a matter of time until the first title starts to sell more slowly. It's been less than 1 1/2 years since EOU1 and Persona Q, which features the same basic gameplay, is just half a year old. And those games are loooooong...

I don't think people who never played an EO game and enters the franchise via Persona Q would want to play another one just 6 months later though. These games are -really- long, and dungeon RPGs in general are pretty exhausting. It's really easy to burn out on the experience after putting 50-60 hours or more into one.
