Will Japan ever grow tired of being force fed the same 3DS games over and over again?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Will Japan ever grow tired of being force fed the same 3DS games over and over again?

This thread makes little sense. You might as well ask if PS4/XBO owners get tired of Call of Duty/Assassin's Creed every year.

The answer is no.

Btw, Yokai Watch 3 and a new mainline Pokemon aren't releasing this year. Again, not sure of this thread's purpose.

Edit: And 3DS may be in a funk but it is still easily the best selling platform over there.

The wording in your thj3jNintendoPiejjjdkkxjfread is abhorrent. I can see what you're trying to say though, and I agree. Particularlhjdjddy with Yokai Watch. Level-5ddh is known to milk their franchises to a sad death and it seems they're dead-set on doing the same with Yokai Watch. However, I think YW has more staying power than Professor Layton or Inazuma ever did.

And your last sentence is just plain hxjxwrong. The 3DS has sold well in Japan and is continuing to be #1, despite it slowing down. I'd say the 3DS is near its saturddhjhdation point in the market but we may get to 20 million sometime in the future.


Barely winning is not where the mighty 3DS should be.

Yes, but we see far more variety everywhere else. Where the yearly Madden and COD make little difference.

yeah when they start buying millions of fifa every year....



 

Ok let me answer your question with another one.
Do NA and EU get bored with shooters?
Why do they keep buying the same mechanics only with a little of changes?

Have you actually looked at the numbers, Ryan?



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Ryan what has happened to you...Seriously!
How much sales do you expect in Japan,3DS is in its fifth year,27k baseline and being top-selling hardware is pretty good,it has started facing saturation,it's at 19m currently and it's probably trending for 25m lifetime in Japan becoming the third best selling hardware in Japan after ds and Gameboy,which is great given the invasion of mobile gaming in Japan...

There is a problem if you have very high expectations...

Let me answer your question with somwthing else entirely.

 

Will Japanese ever grow tired of RPG type games, MMO, and strategy included? Because that is basically all I see. I Do not have a problem with the same genre , just theI same series of games. COD, Red Faction, MGS, Black, The Darkness, Medal of Honor, Battlefield, etc are still a variety.

What more variety?

So far in Japan these games have released for 3DS this year:

The Legend of Legacy, Lost Heroes 2, Majora's Mask 3D, Etrian Mystery Dungeon, Lego City Undercover, Pripara & Pretty Rhythm, Mario vs Donkey Kong, Theatrhythm Dragon Quest, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, Girls Mode 3, Bravely Second: End Layer, Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, Stella Glow, Rhythm Heaven: The Best+, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden, Return to PopoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale, Fire Emblem If, and a whole bunch of anime games that I don't feel like listing.

All of these games appeared on Media Create, and none of them are Pokemon or Yokai. I'm not sure what more variety you need.
