Does Kirby and the Rainbow Curse even have a chance of selling well?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Does Kirby and the Rainbow Curse even have a chance of selling well?

Oh yeah, I forgot about Japan. They'll eat this game up. About half the time, Kirby actually sells more in Japan than America, so that's definitely something to look out for. Also, its price will help.

Bigger question is why will it take 6 months or more to localize the game for Europe


Kirby european sales are always terrible, maybe they want release it on a better date, february is not the best moment for this game, is more like a Xmas release, but oh well... little I know.



I see it being like Kirby return to dreamland, selling decent than sudden  going up in price

Kirby could use a break. Soooo many other franchises that deserve the spotlight more than that pink bastard...

Huh? Kirby rarely gets games at all.

Yeah, right...

Punch-Out!! rarely gets games at all. Kirby has had like 10 in the last 5 years...

Actually, you're wrong. If you count this newest game, which isn't even out yet, that would make 5 Kirby games over the last 5 years. While that sounds like a lot, keep in mind that we see the same thing with Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, Madden, and many other franchises. The difference is unlike those games, the Kirby games are somewhat destinguishable from one another.

I can't see the average consumer today paying close to retail price for a 2D platformer not starring Mario, sadly.

You think rainbow curse is a platformer?

Sidescroller then.

This one will sell more than 1 million.

BTW: The european sales data for Canvas Curse are missing in the VGC database. It's a great game.


Doesn't really matter that EU is missing, they hate Kirby



Predictions: PS4: 110m, XB1: 65m, Wii U: 15m, 3DS: 70m, PSV: 15m

Curl - 6 was right about Zelda U never being a wii u exclusive, I should have never bet against him :p  

It will be lucky to hit 500k lifetime.

I think you underestimate, as I did, Kirby's Japanese appeal. ;)



My thoughts is that it looks like a very cheap to make project, so those kind of sales would be fine for Nintendo.. Much like the toad game.

How you explain it?Yeah,it's a franchise with great games but is it having a special factor that carries so much to Japanese?Is kirby kawaii?Is this the special factor?
