Excuse me but I do not troll. And I never said the game was bad, I simply explained why most Japanese gamers weren't interested. And no, XX was a massive drop sales wise and reception wise by the general audience in Japan vs X because XX was a moderate upgrade of a game that was already just a greatest hits version of old stuff. X was supposed to be a stop gap, it getting an ultimate version clearly didn't go over well. And I already acknowledged the 3DS version, hence why I said it was a port being one of the reasons it failed to sell like Monster Hunter should. And the install base at time of launch argument is BS. Zelda, Mario Kart, Splatoon 2 have all outsold it by enormous margins despite launching during that same period when "few" Switch's were out. Monster Hunter XX Switch didn't sell as well because most MonHun fans were sick of the game by that point and the port did nothing but wrap itself in HD textures and a few ver modest post processing effects.
Maybe you are not a troll; rather, not bright. I see you think that each one of the listed facts makes up the whole of the argument instead of all of those listed facts COMBINED making up the whole of the argument. Also, how can a game sell like Splatoon when it comes out on 3DS as well? Splatoon 2 did not and even Mario Kart was released much, much later from a far less successful console (3DS was clearly not less successful). Also, the game was received well in Japan and it sold well in Japan as well. At least, according to Capcom it did.
However, if I was presenting one of those arguments on its own as the reason the game did not sell millions, you would be correct. But since I am saying ALL of those things (especially the game coming out on 3DS at the same time... hell, I can look at Smash, a Nintendo title, and see it sold better on 3DS than Wii U so...) combined to give Monster Hunter problems (and hell, I can even add your argument as well since it could be true) sales wise. With that in mind, all of the stuff listed between the two of us plus the 20 dollar price hike compared to the 3DS version it was ripped from probably did the game in. My point was that you gave a very, very brief and inaccurate report on why the game did not do as well as World. But if you think it was only that one reason (which is stupid... really, players were burned out? Yeah, that was the problem...) or the two weak reasons you listed, then maybe you are not a troll... maybe you are ignorant. Or maybe you are stupid. I dunno.
