That's what I was thinking, weird take. If you are interested in the game, then buy it (I have the game). But why any Nintendo fan should support this? Just because it's a big third party release? 

We've now seen two different flavors of "Third parties on Nintendo consoles are doomed" within this thread. First, there was the one that made it sound like SMT5 is a failure for not selling like Persona, even though the former is already the best selling game in the series after only a month and a half. Then there's the people who think Nintendo fans owe it to third party publishers to rush out and buy their games for having the graciousness and mercy to dare put games on a Nintendo console, even if they might not actually enjoy the games.

SMTV is more like Pokemon but there is quality.

There is no hay Pokemon Remake is selling millions while SMTV have only sold 800k. The potencial user for SMTV is pecisely there, on Nintendo Switch. But some Nintendo fans only buy made on Nintendo Games without considering other huge third parte titles like this one.

Amazing, congrats to Atlus, 1 million is certainly possible

Not just possible, it's basically guaranteed.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Pokemon has a few things that SMT doesn't, and one of the advantages at min is shared by Persona. Characters can propel a series forward and...well does SMT have a Cynthia? Or perhaps a Futaba? It's also a power of momentum that, once you have, is very hard to shake off. Pokemon has a momentum that SMT doesn't. 

Though given that the Pokemon fanbase is....compicated at the moment it probably choose the right moment to come out



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

SMT has Mara. Pokemon has nothing that can compare to being as awesome as Mara.

Mara is the most ridiculous looking thing I've seen in quite some time.

Mara is only referred to as Female in Strange Journey from the ATLUS USA translation. So they fucked up
