Yeah, sometimes you just have to recognise when someone's just being a...

Well, this is new.

Probably Europe.

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Europe IMO. We ate up Tomodachi Life.

What im curious to see is what effect, if any, the anime has on the game in western countries.

In Japan the popularity of YW exists solely because of its anime. Without, YW would really be nowhere.

Europe. I can already envision the commercials on Cartoon Network .

We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

Send a Friend Request On PSN :P

North America.

It already has an edge because NA is a bigger market for Nintendo, but even Pokemon isn't as big here as in NA or JP. I doubt Yokai Watch will be any different given the similarities. Moreover, it isn't going to be within sniffing distance of Pokemon like it is in Japan in the west overall either though. But Yokai Watch NA>EU.

First one OK - then gong down same way Layton did...

NA top position!


Updated de OP wit information about the lauch of the game on Japan and US opening week. I'll add the european numbers when they are released.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

I think people forgot (which makes sense since it was in Japan first) that the first Yokai Watch didnt EXPLODED the market right away. It somehow got up to 1million coppies just before the second game released <---- which i believe sold around 1mil in its first week.

Soooooo Nintendo and Level 5 just needs to make the right moves in both regions. The same tactics as they used in Japan may not work similar.

This is quite hard to say........ But im guessing it will become popular FIRST in EU, but it will be MUCH MORE POPULAR in NA.

And Level 5 did make a good move to release this outside of Japan when there was no new Pokemon game releasing (Just PSMD).

Also i would note that if the Nintendo's NeXt console is releasing next year, Youkai Watch may find it hard to capture its audience since all eyes will be on this new thing.

Pocky Lover Boy!
