Biggest Franchises of JAPAN (Tier Listing)! Also Splatoon, Can It Potentially Be 1 of The Top 10 Franchises in Japan?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Biggest Franchises of JAPAN (Tier Listing)! Also Splatoon, Can It Potentially Be 1 of The Top 10 Franchises in Japan?

Hot Shots Golf? Last few entries (from most recent backwards)

- Vita/PS3 = 432k
- PSP = 441k
- PS3 = 712k

It's about as big as Zelda is these days anyway.

Paper Mario seems a consistent 500k+. If Fire Emblem stays away from home consoles it should be a pretty solid 450k+ too.

I also don't get home God Eater is borderline when it has sold:

- 385k (expansion + still selling thanks to anime)
- 635k
- 551k (expansion)
- 617k

That makes it at least as big as Tales and Zelda.

And Metal Gear has sold 995k & 986k across the last two MGS entries (well, plus 450k if we count Demo Gear Solid), that puts it on par with Resident Evil & Grand Theft Auto pretty much, which you've classed as B-tier.

This thread also makes me wonder how big Kingdom Hearts is in Japan these days. My bet is it's no longer B-Tier.



Around the Network

Splatoon will be in the Mario Kart - 2D Mario - Final Fantasy sales.
