Kingdom Hearts III, unless S-E has a Switch version to inflate sales. 

So it's not going to kill anything until 2020? Sounds good.

You know, Tabata is free now...

He'll be missed!

Not by me. But by somebody, probably.

No! I would cry like a big strong man because that's what I am!

The problem in Japan is not a console or another, the thing is the console market shrinked a lot in favor of handelheds in last years, and than the handelhed market is srhinking in favor of smartphones. So, Japan is not a dead market, but it`s a shadow of it`s former self and it will be for many years to come.

And this is the very reason japanese developers tried so hard to break into western markets in the last gen and this gen. And FF brand is hurt not just by FF XIII sequels, but also because in the last years there were a stream of half baked games using FF brand to sell some easy copies, hell, we even got a FF game generated automatically for Wii.

Japanese AAA games future depends on selling well on West. With the exception of some very specific franchises like DQ, Monster Hunter, Pokemon, Yokai Watch and etc., getting a million copies sold in Japan will get harder by the day.

You're on point!



No, like others have said Yakuza has been slowly declining since number 4 and Final Fantasy has been in a constant decline since 8 or 9, excluding spinoffs, MMO & direct sequels.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
