I guess over the next few weeks is when this thread really gets interesting, will be looking forward to it.

What are the early guesses on Switch?

RE7 doesn't seem great at 10k imo and I guess as some where saying the numbers down the line are a lot lower than they use to be.

Is 200k the new bar for doing good? atleast on ps4

Yay Nier!

It's so close to 200k could it be that it only shipped 200k and basically sold out? I saw that it sold like 70% of the first shipment on day 1 in the other thread.

What's the situation in the stores Japan residents?

Either way, really glad for Nier.

Decent numbers for SRWV I guess. Still not doing anything to reverse the series' overall downward trend.

That's awesome to see!!! Maybe Japan wants new types of games/not common stuff? This has a chance of outselling some big name titles if it sells even 100K more after this...

Massive congrats to Platinum & Square Enix, great to see Nier doing big numbers, especially considering most don't have access as of yet ^^

They finally gave Taro a decent budget and a good team to work with, it's great to see them succeed.

Here's hoping for many more.

I don't quite understand what this particularly entry should be compared to within the series.

The last OG Saga game?

01./00. [PS4] Super Robot Wars OG: The Moon Dwellers # <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2016.06.30} (¥8.200) - 70.392 / NEW
02./00. [PS3] Super Robot Wars OG: The Moon Dwellers <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2016.06.30} (¥8.200) - 38.715 / NEW

Which it beat quite comfortably.

The 3DS games?

03./00. [3DS] Super Robot Wars UX # <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2013.03.14} (¥7.140) - 115.384 / NEW
01./00. [3DS] Super Robot Wars BX <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2015.08.20} (¥7.171) - 98.366 / NEW <85,42%>

Notably higher.

The last Masou Kishin game?

07./00. [PS3] Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masou Kishin F - Coffin of the End # <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2014.08.28} (¥7.690) - 28.807 / NEW

Yeah, that one bombed lol.

The 3rd Super Robot Wars Z games?

01./00. [PSV] 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Tengoku-Hen <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2015.04.02} (¥7.690) - 121.219 / NEW
02./00. [PS3] 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Tengoku-Hen <SLG> (Bandai Namco Games) {2015.04.02} (¥8.716) - 109.200 / NEW

Yeah, it did lose to those admittedly. That had a lot of hype from being the last in that particular series though, I believe? Seems to be a more popular sub-series in general though judging by the sales of the PSP & PS3 entries.

The last Super Robot Wars' with random letters at the end?

01. [NDS] Super Robot Taisen K (Namco Bandai) 117,000 / NEW
02. / 00. [NDS] Super Robot Wars L (Bandai Namco) {25/11/10} - 129.054 / NEW

So yeah, I don't quite understand how this series works, but I don't understand where the 'downward trend' part is coming from since the only thing it seems to be down from is Super Robot Wars Z series?

Tsutaya report regarding Switch Pre-orders:

Zelda Breath of the Wild is the most pre-ordered game by far. Pre-orders are 5 times higher than 1-2-Switch, the second most pre-ordered game.
Bomberman R is third and Dragon Quest Heroes 1-2 is fourth.

Regarding the profile of users, not only the usual Nintendo fans, also people who enjoy Dragon Quest and Monster Hunter, and other light users have Switch pre-ordered. He has the impression that a new audience is interested on the system, different from the typical Nintendo.

Average of 26.095 units weekly.

Huh? How is that surprising? DQ and MH are on 3DS.

I imagine a good reason why Automata has fared much better than the first Nier is because its main character doesn't have a face like a constipated moose.
Blasphemy! Papa Nier > yet another waifu.

But I know no one in Japan would agree lol

Very happy for Platinum!
I feel like they really needed a success right about now, and from I've read Automata is a great game and a worthy follow up to Nier.

I wonder if Saito considers this to be "selling like hotcakes"?

Pls remaster/remake the original Nier you dream team you.

Sounds good.

If Nintendo shipped enough units I def can see Switch having better FW than the 3DS.

V is the replacement series for Z. The games usually do worse with each successive entry, so opening lower than the last Z isn't a good sign.

May I ask why? Or is it a convoluted "that's how the series works" kind of thing?
It's not that convoluted.

Z games are the only mainline series effectively.

Anything published on the nintendo platforms is 2nd rate and inferior in quality to the mainline entries.

Masou Kishin games are made by a different developer which is now bankrupt. Despite what some attention seeking poster claimed in a thread title.

OG games do not have any of the licensing. They are remakes of older games with all the licensed stuff stripped out.

It's not that confusing but you need to have the proper knowledge I guess?

OG Saga are the titles in the series featuring only original characters and mecha designs, Moon Dwellers were a spin off of OG Saga as the game was not a numbered entry.

The 3DS games are regular entries but not the highest effort ones (just like the DS entries), it shows in the budget and marketing push the games got (probably also on the roster, featuring less new IP and recycling older animations)

Masou Kishin are a low effort spin-off centered on a side character of OG Saga, it never did well.

Super Robot Wars Z were the lead entries in the series for 7 years on PSP/PSV/PS3, they got the bigger budget and marketing push, popular IP, new animations etc.

If V is supposed to be its replacement then it just continue the downward spiral the IP has been on for a few years and doesn't bode well for its sequels.

If you compare sales between all subseries you'll notice that the sales are on decline for every one of them, 3DS entries compared to DS entries, V to Z, Masou Kishin to its previous entries, OG 2 from OG etc.

Pretty much expected for Japan when Capcom switched to first person, RE7 as a whole is very much focused on the western audience.
Still, Nier is quite a niche ip that beating RE7 anywhere is not something I'd expect.

Nice result for Nier. Hopefully it does well overseas, although I'm a little concerned it will get lost with all these big releases going on.

Wow. Wasn't expecting to see the day where nier sold better than a mainline resident evil in my lifetime.

But looks like it deserves It. I would get the game if It wasn't for Zelda.

V is the replacement series for Z. The games usually do worse with each successive entry, so opening lower than the last Z isn't a good sign.
I thought V was a one off?
And the sales aren't that surprising considering the series represented.
Their one off titles for the past while have always seem to have had low sales.

Cograts to Nier and Yoko Taro. Game looks amazing and I can't wait to get in there. Hopefully this means SE will entrust YT with more projects.

Also waifus for the win.

Great for SE and Nier. Looking forward to playing when it's released here :)

And FFXV continues to sell after three months. I am curious how it will do when episode gladio comes out at the end of the month.
