Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NSMBW is going to be MASSIVE in Japan. Preorders rank higher than NSMB DS.

Fun fact indeed haha

ToG tracking well, and my bet is that its gna have a 200-250k opening week. Not bad at all... SW3 seems to be heading towards 140k'sh first week unless more people buy the game if NSMB drives hardware. I could see that happening

Never underestimate Mario's power. He's a real legend for moving tons of hardware and softwares. I wonder how much this 25 years-old franchise have earned since 1984.



I think Sengoku Musou 3's really being held back by the platform to be honest. Looking at Monster Hunter G/3, I sort of think Koei should've taken a similar approach and quick-ported Sengoku Musou 1-2 to Wii (bundled together, like Musou Orochi 1-2/Z on PS3) six months ago to start building an audience. As is, I think the majority of Musou fans will probably just sit it out and wait for the inevitable 360/PS3/PS2/PSP ports. :/

On the other hand, it may attract enough Musou fans to Wii to start ensuring the platform starts getting ports of future titles too (ie: Hokuto no Ken Musou, Gundam Musou 3, Shin Sangoku Musou 7, Musou Orochi 3, Shin Sangoku Musou Multi-Raid 2, etc).  Really, this is something Koei should've started doing YEARS ago, but better late than never I guess...

Well said. I've said it before that Koei didnt do enough to build the SW audience on the Wii. They should've added more to the Wii library, especially since the series is already in decline. Capcom did well to build the MH audience but Koei couldnt follow that. Mind you it will do respectable numbers, but i was hoping at least 250k+ first week.

I also agree with that. I mean you can put big name games on there and expect some to jump over, but you need to give incentive as well and Koei didn't necessarily accomplish that. Bring the userbase over and build off the one you had... they did nothing to help that notion. While Capcom with MH did a great job and succeeded quite well in it and I expect more MH games to hit Nintendo platforms because of it.

Is there any update, Samus?

lol that sounds like.... Metroid =/



Guiduc @

Yes here it is =)

Daily update 2/12 Final day of tracking:

NSMBW: 1072pt (+94)
NSMB: 688pt (+79)

There is the final numbers for the New Super Mario games. As you can see it looks mighty impressive for NSMBW and we will most likely be in for a fantastic first week sales.

I predict 900-1100 k for the week with around 450-600 k first day.



Top 10:

1. Final Fantasy XIII 1642 pt (+32)
2. New Super Mario Bros. Wii 1072 pt (+94)
3. Phantasy Star Portable 2 535 pt (+17)
4. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep 423 pt (+5)
5. Mobile Suit Gundam Vs. Gundam NEXT Plus 402 pt (+18)
6. Tales of Graces 307 pt (+7)
7. Dragon Quest VI: The Realms of Reverie 242 pt (+3)
8. Samurai Warriors 3 137 pt (+8)
9. Stitch! DS: Rhythm and Ohana Adventure 103 pt (+7)
10.Naruto Shippuden! Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3 96 pt (+4)



huge numbers for NSMB! and tales of graces with a steady rise again, hopefully it will continue to do so

Y'know, Koei isn't exactly the greatest company. Their games are usually mediocre at best (like 5.6s out of 10 consistently). They just reuse that Warriors brand CONSTANTLY.
