Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo would have given up on Fire Emblem saga if Awakening did not sell over 250k.

Question: Fire Emblem has had a long lifetime. Do you get the feeling it gets harder to release a new episode every time?

Yamagami: No doubt. Truth be told, sales are dropping. The sales manager of Nintendo, Mr. Hatano, told us that this could be the last Fire Emblem. Due to this progressive descend on sales, they told us that if the sales of this episode stayed below 250,000 copies, we'd stop working on the saga. I remember when I came back from the meeting and told the team "My God, what are we gonna do?! The end has come!". Our reaction was clear: if this was going to be the last Fire Emblem, we had to put everything we always wanted to include. That's how this new project was born!

*Curl-6 was right and I was wrong about Xenoblade Chronicles X and Zelda Wii U not releasing in 2014!
*STRYKIE was right and I was wrong about Yoshi's Wooly World not releasing in 2014!

That actually makes perfect sense, except they didn't EXPECT it to sell well. I am sure they wanted it to, lol.

While this is good news, it scares me to think that one franchise I like won't ever come again because of low sales. Guess this is the gaming world :(



Nintendo and PC gamer

Did they mean like world-wide?

I mean it sold twice that in Japan alone lolz. Guess this franchise is safe for now. Advance Wars on the other hand....

Glad it sold well.

Now I just need to get into the series which I will this year for sure one way or another.

Putting a full fledged one on a handheld at the perfect time really gave it a boost.
