Good sell-throughs for Orochi, Sen IV, and Utawarerumono.
I doubt Valkyria and Refrain will have legs, so that's a bit problematic. DBFZ will sell in the long term, so a low Day 1 sell-through isn't a big problem. I have no idea what to expect from TWEWY tho.
 
It's literally part of the season pass.

If you get it as a part of the season pass, you get it for cheaper, on top of some other stuff and also one week earlier.

Little reason to go for the stand alone release for most people.
 
Most people interested in torna bought it months ago with expansion pass. I don't know how its retail performance can be relevant. Like someone said, it's probably mainly collectors wanting a physical copy.
 
yes. clearly you don't have played these games. or explain me the differences over the price and overall budget please :)

man nintendo has failed really hard with this.
y'are just a troll so it's not like you'll care but it's pretty easy to explain the difference

torna is sold through a season pass of the base game
xiii-2 and xiii-3 weren't

the end
 
Torna targets those who liked Xenoblade 2, who most likely already bought the Expansion Pass at launch and thus already bought the game. The expansion pass content was promoted during 2018, so more XB2 owners probably bought it at that point. Torna was announced at E3, and it having a stand alone physical release a week after its downloadable version release is basically a very cheap collector's edition for those who liked to collect game cases for some reason. Nothing ever indicates it's XIII-2 and Lightning Returns level of sequel.

Torna is exactly the same as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. It’s a stand-alone DLC story pack, that is available as part of a season pass or a stand-alone, budget price retail release.
To be fair, that is what he initially said:

Torna is NOT a dlc. it's a prequel, a standalone game with different mechanics and a new world, like uncharted lost legacy. and that's the fault, they promote it as a dlc
I think the discussion here is around the term "DLC". I wouldnt count Uncharted Lost Legacy as DLC. Its a standalone game, but not as big as a full featured Uncharted game. Its kinda like a unrelated side story to Uncharted 4. If you own Xenoblade 2, is the download size for Torna less than the standalone version? As in that the downloadable version uses assets from Xenoblade 2?

Doesnt seem like trolling to me. I think the guy's point is that if Nintendo had positioned Torna differnetly, more as being a standalone game rather than being a part of the season pass, maybe it would have sold more. Without knowing how many who bought the season pass however, its impossible to say.
 
Yes, I clearly remember being able to download a DLC and play them using the original FF13 disc.
again: THAT'S THE NINTENDO FAULT. they shouldn't have sold it as a part of a season pass. that's the freaking problem and that's why you all think is a "minigame" (Lol cmon casiopao) or a dlc. uncharted lost legacy was initially part of a season pass too.

To be fair, that is what he initially said:



I think the discussion here is around the term "DLC". I wouldnt count Uncharted Lost Legacy as DLC. Its a standalone game, but not as big as a full featured Uncharted game. Its kinda like a unrelated side story to Uncharted 4. If you own Xenoblade 2, is the download size for Torna less than the standalone version? As in that the downloadable version uses assets from Xenoblade 2?
thanks.

Uncharted Lost Legacy is a downloadable content for the game Uncharted 4. It's also a DLC, available as standalone.

The guy is just trying to spin this so he can argue it was of any importance and bombed.

Japan might be the only place where Thunder Force IV outsold Sonic 1.
 
Uncharted Lost Legacy is a downloadable content for the game Uncharted 4. It's also a DLC, available as standalone.

The guy is just trying to spin this so he can argue it was of any importance and bombed.
I might be mistaken, but i think Lost Legacy is only available as a standalone release. It was however part of the Uncharted 4 season pass, but i think you can only download Lost Legacy as a standalone game, not launch it from within Unchartred 4. I guess its more of a semantic thing if this is DLC or not, but its not additional content for an existing game in that regards at least. I think thats his point, that Nintendo should rather have pushed it more as a standalone game instead. Thats what Sony ended up doing with Lost Legacy. Initially planned to be a DLC for Uncharted 4, but then they probably increased the scope of it and made it a standalone game instead. Thats why they stopped selling the Uncharted 4 season pass (it was $25, Lost Legacy was $40. Everyone who had already bought the season pass got Lost Legacy).

I don't know the exact specifics about Uncharted 4's DLCs, but from the moment it is established that the content is first and firemost something that was part of the season pass of another game, then I fail to see how it is anything else than a DLC, no matter the distribution or that it's available in physical form, on disc or cartridge. The fact that it is sold as retail doesn't chage anything to the fact that it's a downloadable content for another game. You can be both a DLC and a standalone game without being a contradiction.

It's not like it's anything new. Infamous Second Son did this, and Saints Row IV as well. They all had DLC in the forms of standalone, but they're still only DLC.
 
Lost legacy was turned into standalone game when ND increased the scope and duration of the content. It also increased in price consequently but was given for free to season pass owners to honour the previous deal. Its a bigger and longer game than the first uncharted.

It's really not the same situation as torna, and this derail has gotten sad enough already

I see what you mean. I guess the distinction lies within "for another game". In general, i think most people think of DLC as being additional content for an existing game, as in adding more content to that specific game. If you dont need that specific game to use the extra content, i guess thats where the difference is. I dont think it matters that much though, calling it DLC or not. But pushing/advertising it as DLC or as a standalone game, maybe it could make some difference? Maybe people think they need the original game if being pushed more as DLC instead. Probably wouldnt make a huge difference though, i think.

"From a sales perspective, I have to say Xenoblade Chronicles 2 exceeded my expectations," Takahashi tells me through a translator during a recent phone interview. "We really saw more people pick the game up and experience it in the North American and European territories than we thought would do so.

"It's still early days for the Torna DLC, but from what we've seen in Japan, the sales of the Torna DLC are exceeding our expectations as well," Takahashi adds.
 
So was the Witcher 3 DLC, yet no one compares it to a full sequel.
it doesn't need to be a full sequel when it cost 30$ or 40$. torna is a new "mini" xenoblade game located in the same universe as 2, that's it. also it has a brand new icon on the switch menu



and its own version of the software (1.0 actually). explain this

anyway I really hope takahashi is not lying, maybe digital sales from the sp are high

It is not sold independently in Japan, except for the package version. You have to go into Xenoblade 2 and then select it.

Luigi U also got a physical released, was DLC, cost around $30, and it was just Mario U with Luigi's jump physics. What are your arguing here?

And I have Torna as DLC and guess what, it doesn't show as a new icon for me. It's in my Xenoblade 2 file.
