So Far Cry 5 outsold 2 months of Monster Hunter in just 1 week?
That’s depressing.

Why?



Can't see AoT2 anywhere. I'm rather surprised it couldn't chart despite being on 3 platforms. Is the IP big in the US or not especially?



Despite ONLY rolling out to XB1 and Windows 10 (aka PC)......

How is that an "only"?

It has a solid fanbase but still quite niche in the US.

Maybe would have gotten more sales if it released closer to when the anime aired, season 2 ended last July and season 3 starts this July so releasing in March may not have been a great idea.

Mat from NPD was saying they dont get digital sales for Windows so its basically just XBO they have data for.

Niche?

It's not niche really at all. 

In fact it's pretty much the new Death Note, the anime that appeals to people who don't like anime. 

You go into high schools and you see a shit ton of Attack on Titan apparel. 

People just don't buy associated products very often, especially games, because games usually have a bad reputation as associated products.

So after a year, are we already into the period where the only thing that's going to sell on a Nintendo console are Nintendo games? Just look at that top 10.
