MH iceborne should Pass 100 Points before release

I thought the first new mainline Pokemon on the switch would be going nuts, are people not happy with this new title?



FF7, P5, AL, and Ryza increase. Nice.

The #BringBackNationalDex catastrophe is big in Japan too, there is definitely going to be a backlash there too - if not a more visible one than in the west. I haven't seen any Japanese fans defending the decision like you see the minority doing in the west. The higher price for less content compared to earlier games is very unpopular.



SMM2 and Smash goes up, FE 3H is a little bit more down but I guess that's the fate of most JRPG's at this point ...

Also, how the heck did Pokémon get nothing this weekend ?

Public demos of Final Fantasy 7 will be at Gamescom. I wonder if it will help pre orders.

That “catastrophe” will barely have an impact on sale in the first place

I think there is a combination of factors.

1. Pokemon has been on a steady decline for over a decade in Japan. Here are sales from GameDataLibrary.

Diamond/Pearl (2006)-5.83m

Black/White (2010)-5.49m

X/Y (2013)-4.46m

Sun/Moon (2016)-3.92m

2. The National Pokedex backlash is going to affect the "hardcore" crowd who pre-orders games months in advance more than it will with the average or casual fan.

3. COMG is rapidly becoming irrelevant when it comes predicting the performance of games.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
