Well at least 2 people in Japan were excited for Skyward Sword

It's a start

How well did the original for the Wii do here on COMG and FW on Famitsu?

COMG! has declined over the years, true... but skyward sword came at the tail's end of the Wii, which died even quicker in Japan than in the rest of the world (about 40% of all Wii consoles sold in Jpan were sold in the first year). In other words, each other negative effect should cancel out.

So 207 total... that seems achievable to me.

Looks like MHR is slowly starting it's afterburner

Link however isn't going skyward yet

Edit: looks like the stock for the Switch was low again, next famitsu probably ~75k

Seems like quite the drop for Bowser's Fury. Do we know how much NSMBU DX dropped after it's first week for comparison sake ?

I hope it's legs will be looong !

Also, Bravely Default II might finally rush to the end with some points, +3 !!

Is that even comparable? I mean hasn't COMG numbers declined over the years?

Japan population was 128 million in 2011 and now is about 126 million and will be rapidly decreasing over the next couple decades. That is mostly felt in their youth as they are getting older and older population wise. Less youth = less gamers. I think estimates are they will shrink to 90 million by 2050. Unless those trends are reversed, Japan will increasingly become less of a factor in the global gaming market.

I really wasn't talking about the Japanese population, I was talking specifically about COMG. I am aware of the decline in the Japanese population, but that wasn't my main point.

My point is if there is less people then there will be less sales which means less COMG pre orders.
