Which one do you think will sell best, and which one will get the highest Metascore? I personally think Kirby will win in sales and Ni No Kuni in Metascore, but both will be close.

One question, why these two games? What exactly are we comparing here?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Because they're releasing close to eachother, because they're both equally popular and equally good, and because there haven't been a lot of interesting threads on this site lately.

They arent close in popularity. That said you picked them because of release dates. Im picking up both as i want to try Ni No Kuni 2

 

Ni No Kuni in meta and kirby in sales. Kirby doesnt score that well honestly

They are close. Sure, the Kirby franchise is a lot bigger as a whole, but the last few Kirby games have sold roughly the same as Ni No Kuni 1.



I don't know enough about Kirby to say. However I hope Ni No Kuni does well, loved White Witch and this one looks even better.

Its not all about sales. There are alot of games that sell more than kirby but it doesn't make them more popular



I don't think NNK 2 has a chance to outsell Kirby star allies but it will problably have better reviews.



Metacritic: Ni No Kuni 2
Saleswise, that's rather tough because i expect them to be pretty much on par with each other, but I think I'll will give the edge to Kirby since there are no major release for the switch and not that big of a competition when it comes to 2d platformer as of now whereas the ps4 has many JRPGs and dozens of western RPGs.....
