AoC will finish over 60 points which isn't bad for a Warriors game certainly, yet maybe a bit under what I expected what for what is supposed to be Nintendo's Holiday title ...
Warriors games usually have better points than that though. People are still fine with Animal Crossing MK8 and etc. Nintendo can save the heavy hitters for later.
I would have agreed some 6 years ago, but in the last years, Warriors titles really didn't do that well anymore.
Did you check? Digging now, will edit.
Dynasty Warriors 9- 113 pts
The worst performing game in it's series and still almost double AoC.
Warriors Orochi 4- 113 pts (90 PS4+23 SW)
A strange coincidence.
That's all I have time for.
The mainline games sell usually way better than the franchise linked ones in Japan
For comparison the bestselling DW was 4 with 700k FW and 1.2M lifetime
Bestselling franchise Warrior game was One Piece 1 with 600k FW and 800k lifetime
Dynasty and Samurai Warrior main games play in another league here. And also that One Piece record was always going to be hard to beat.
Although this is Japan only. When it comes to appeal worldwide AoC is probably the best thing the whole Warriors franchise ever had.
