Interesting, sale or bundle for 3D Allstars make sense we know that the game is currently at 60-80% stock - so around 500K has been shipped by Nintendo not counting digital.
Momotaro is heading for that 350K opening making it the 7th biggest opening in front of DQXIS which launched at 303K. Age of Calamity range will be between 150-200K
The game shipped over 500K in the most recent Koei Tecmo financials, so Ryza 2 has a great chance to be the first game in the franchise to break 1 million. In any case Koei's pivot towards the Switch is paying off, with Age of Calamity, Ryze 2, BOND and Dynasty 9 things are definitely looking pretty good for them in the upcoming quarters. This is a major change compared to just months ago when most of the games I mentioned weren't even announced.
Koei Tecmo has been Switch's most supportive 3rd party company since day one. It's no surprise almost all of their games are coming to Switch.
If I had to list including Indie, AA, and AAA.
Koei Tecmo > NIS Amercia > Bandai Namco > Inti Creates > Ubisoft > Square Enix
I could keep going, but I'll stop here.
Would you disagree if I said that Age of Calamity, Atelier 2, BOND and Dynasty Warriors 9 - are pretty much equal to their combined output on the Switch up until this point in terms of sales potential. They have over 100 games launched on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita which charted on Famitsu, and even with those games I listed just over 30 on the Switch.
Overall its only now that they are starting to really capitalize on their support of the Switch in Japan.
