Code Vein did have a release date. Then it was delayed and went AWOL for many months, and now it has a release date again.

I think first and foremost the game just has to have a system confirmed so that the SKU can show up in the preorders. Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3) was on the charts for many years without a release date.

Thank you for your clarification.



They need to negotiate the size of the initial shipment and it’s cost first.



I am coming to a point where I think that the pre order chart from COMG is quite pointless. Therefore I am contemplating if I should end my daily statistical update.

Looking forward to seeing what Fire Emblem can do, though I expect this entry to have more of an impact in the west than in Japan.

Somehow I found myself under this weird delusion that Japan actually really liked Fire Emblem. Like that Fire Emblem tended to sell over a million copies and sold most of its copies in Japan or something. And was a relatively niche title that tended to have most of its first week sales preordered. Must have been imagining things.

Definitely imagined that, since Awakening is one of two Fire Emblem games to sell over a million and even Awakening had more sales from North America then Japan same goes for Fates.

Edit: Also i'm pretty sure most of Awakening's sales from it's legs so...

Yeah, I think back when we had VGChartz regional sales estimates in the database, I saw that the older titles did pretty amazingly in Japan by comparison, sometimes getting over half a million from there alone, and saw the newer titles taking off, and assumed that Japan would follow suit. Seems Nintendo just found a way to make it appeal to the west more. I thought it just blew up from being in Smash, which you think would affect the West more, but still increase sales for all regions. Seems it was a combination of that and Awakening's changes, which must have done more to appeal to the West with the casual mode and increased focus on the dating simish elements and not done much to appeal to Japanese gamers any more than it already did. Still, while Awakening's second million came from legs, its first came from FW sales and holiday sales, and it just seems like the sort of title that would be frontloaded in sales, like RPGs and other more niche genres typically are.





Ouch...

Well at least Fire Emblem got something today...



Everybody must be resting on the sunday........
