I'm surprised that the only game other than Mh that reached the 100k was Bomberman. I wonder if Konami will try other things, a compilation of all the DS games would be a cheap way to bring Castlevania to the console. And Contra 4, still haven't tried it.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Low numbers overall, but third parties only got themselves to blame.

Make a real effort!



The smaller games have smaller sales, the bigger games that are late ports or re-iterations have mediocre sales, really this isn't that surprising. I still think it's a little weak, but whatever. Decent sales. FE Warriors numbers are terrible though



32k for FIFA is decent.

Feel like it's worth noting that Japanese games do not need to sell as much, particularly if one does the 'Switch fills Vita Japanese Niche' talk'

On the Vita, the sales of One Piece World Red are .15 million, and Fate/Excella .14 million. By VGC numbers Fate's nearly passed that on the Switch with a lot less time.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

No Pokken? Does that not count? That passed 120k in JP.

No proper MH, DQ or Yo-kai game have released in JP yet, so don't expect too much yet.

I think Prof Layton/Phoenix Wright should be coming, those have decent legs

Can't think of other non-exclusives that can hit over 500k in JP tho. Nintendo will carry as usual.

But it'd be interesting to see how a GTA 5 port would do there.
