He's an analyst that's at Nintendo's closed press conference.



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Mr. Iwata also mentioned that he expected high sales for this game with the release in North America. Nintendo also encouraged people to purchase the game on the eShop. I wouldn't be surprised if this is true.

4x? Wouldn't surprise me. But will VGC numbers reflect this?

In the thread titled "Iwata Responds to Nintendo as 3rd Party..." is where I got the info from Iwata expecting a lot for Animal Crossing. And Nintendo of America's own Twitter account is where I read that they encourage people to buy the game off the eShop.

Sadly, VGC won't reflect any of this. (Unless there is a decision to increase the weekly sales so as to stay on track with the eShop.)

No, that can't be true... I seriously doubt it... I mean, it can't be true.
