I should have known someone would bring that up.
Mainly, the metascore which is influenced mainly by it's easiness.
Technically if you look at different reviews. The game is getting mostly 7 and 8 scores which anything but good,lol.
The score would be around 77 if it wasn't for the two 45 it got, even though one of them that the game was good.(Man, way to reflect that).
I think the overall will go up with time in this case. User score will be around 8.8-9 like Robobot.
Heck, IGN and GameSpot which were infamous for their Triple Deluxe review gave the game pretty high scores.
Then, on the sales portion.
... Hahaha !!
Did you ever give a look at recent trends for Kirby games ? The games usually never do well in the first weeks but always end up with impressive legs to reach high sales.
This one looks to break the trend of low first week sales when you look at Amazon and other retailers. Also, we're talking about the first Switch exclusive launching this year.
IMO, the game will do it's first million before even the financial report at the end of March, easily.
Probably end up at 2,5M-3M LT.
