I think FE will land between 79-85 on Metacritic.

Fire Emblem will be 88-93 meta...bank on it.

Absolutely no way. I can see 88 being the best case scenario.

Yep. The days when people kept speculating on FE Three Houses being a Harry Potter Simulator, with few battles, and bad graphics are long gone. It should be right up there with Awakening or the GBA Fire Emblem.

You know what really frustrates me with this thread? Why isn't Famistsu on Metacritic, or Opencritic? They've been around longer than almost anybody else. There are plenty of other foreign reviews on Opencritic. Why not Famitsu?

They made the mistake of openly admitting that their scores can be bought.

Or it's simply because Meta and Open don't approach outlets, but rather be the ones who get approached and then give their approval or not.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yikes! They accept bribes? Source?

Higher than I expected for the Kill La Kill game. The footage I had seen previously looked really, really poor.

But why though? 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Awakening got a 92% on metacritic and was considered the rebirth of a dead series with it's sweeping game mechanic changes. With Fire Emblem Fates' lukewarm critical reception, and the most recent entry Fire Emblem Echoes having an even worse reception and tepid sales compared to the previous two entries this game feels a lot like when Awakening launched but to a lesser degree. Famitsu giving it the highest score they have gave a Fire Emblem game and positive previews on western media is a good sign.

The bar for RPG's has raised a lot since Awakening. Persona 5 is one of the most polished and well designed JRPG's of recent years and it managed to score a 93. Three Houses looks small and clunky in comparison.
