Media Create Sales: Week 38, 2018 (Sep 17 - Sep 23)

About Torna
https://www.usgamer.net/articles/xe...apan-far-exceeded-monolith-softs-expectations
"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.
Another win for MonolithSoft. Unstoppable talent

If the bar was outselling previous entries it wasn't very high since both were well below 1m. I guess that gives another motivation to Nintendo for a Xenoblade Chronicles X port despite going against their strategy.
 
The last few weeks have been uninteresting for the Switch and it's software. Next week we will finally get a bit of movement since I think it's the last week of this quarter and Nintendo will probably ship more consoles and there is a bunch of titles launching.

Spider-man is performing super well for a Western title, next big title for the PS4 is COD. I think as with other countries this year's COD will perform very strongly.


Since I was bored I wanted to check how the Direct did on YouTube two weeks later:
Switch Online - 1.95M Views | 1.6K Likes | 3.2K Dislikes
Nintendo Direct - 807K Views | 8K Likes | 559 Dislikes
Animal Crossing Reveal - 700K Views | 11K Likes | 109 Dislikes
NSMBUD Reveal - 434K Views | 2.9K Likes | 200 Dislikes
Splatoon 2 Ver. 4 - 423K Views | 9K Likes | 137 Dislikes
Final Fantasy Reveals - 343K Views | 1.4K Likes | 117 Dislikes
Super Mario Party - 270K Views | 1.8K Likes | 86 Dislikes
Luigi's Mansion 3 - 173K Views | 1.6K Likes | 33 Dislikes
Pokemon Lets Go - 124K Views | 708 Likes | 52 Dislikes

Unsurprisingly people are hyped for new Animal Crossing. Pokemon Lets Go continues to not cause too many waves. Splatoon audience continues to be extremely engaged on social media. Without anything substantial like YW4 being shown off Final Fantasy ended up the biggest 3rd party reveal during the direct

If XCX2 happens, then a XCX port will happen no matter what. If there's no XCX2, then there won't be a XCX port, even if XC2 were to sell 10m units. This totally falls in line with Nintendo's strategy re: Wii U ports, which has two criteria for deciding whether a game is ported or not:

- game already successful on Wii U but held back by the console (MK8DX, Capitan Todd, DKC TF, etc.) = port OK
- game is getting a new entry / sequel on Switch (pretty much only reason Bayonetta 1 and 2 were ported is Bayonetta 3, without that one Bayo 1 and 2 would've stayed on Wii U) = port OK. Pretty much why ports of stuff like Tokyo Mirage Session is unlikely, because a new game/sequel is unlikely.

I don't think XC2 sales have any impact on a possible XCX port, but they would have had on an hypohtetical XCX2, which would've most likely been shelved if XC2 had truly bombed. Besides, I'd argue that XCX definitely was a game held back by its platform, so there's definitely merit in porting it.

but x is stil a xenoblade game like 2, so there is already a fanbase. the bayonetta situation was very different

Bayonetta is a special case. Nintendo founded but it's a third party IP developed by a third party.

It's one of few remaining Wii U games candidate for a Deluxe Edition.

New Super Mario Bros. U is apparently coming this year.
Mario Maker will be skipped since it gets a sequel and was already ported to 3DS.
Super Mario 3d World
Pikmin 3
Xenoblade Chronicles X, only because Monolith has shown interest for a port, it didn't light the charts.
 
I still hope they'll give Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE another chance.

But knowing Atlus, they'll probably port it when the Switch's successor is revealed (or released...)
 
True. But hypothetically speaking, why would Nintendo reject Atlus' offer to port the game when the Switch is nearing the end of its life cycle? (Whether that's to the Switch or its successor)
They could do it in house or outsourcing, TMS is Nintendo’s IPs, the only thing Atlus related it has is the bufu/agi/zio system, even the battle flow is different than most smt games
 
TMS was on a system with no JRPG audience seeing as the only big JRPG to come out before it XCX.
I believe it came out in the west in 2016 making it one of the last first party games for that system.

I imagine that after SMTV and FE three houses come out, a port wouldn’t cost much and would sell moderately well.

Probably the only thing stopping it is Nintendo’s lack of interest since Atlus ports a lot of older titles all the time like strange journey and Catherine
 
I'm pretty sure Nintendo's intention with TMS was to make it a standalone franchise of its own after the debut title, but it doing badly and now Xenoblade rising makes its existence unnecessary (especially with it being a collaboration with an external developer, rather than fully Nintendo owned).

A detail that's often overlooked regarding the transition between the FE x SMT announcement to TMS is that TMS is actually only copyrighted by Nintendo/Atlus, with no IS involved. The FE series elements are credited separately like they were just guests. It really seems like when it took its final form, they were aiming to launch a new franchise through TMS, that could just discard its FE ties afterwards, not just a FE spin-off.
 
There are a great many other games that would be more lucrative for atlus to port and yet don't. TMS doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think they will. I’m just saying for some reason if they did decide to do so, I don’t believe Nintendo would say no. I would buy it if they did however.

584./253. [WIU] Tokyo Mirage Session FE # <RPG> (Nintendo) {2015.12.26} (¥6.700) - 3.417 / 55.387 (-82%) (26.340 <48,16%>)

USA
< 100.000

I'm sure everyone wants to port this game.
 
How did the Devil Survivor games do? Those were from the same team as TMS and got upgraded successor platform ports.

There are a great many other games that would be more lucrative for atlus to port and yet don't. TMS doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell
I feel like there aren’t honestly. Persona seems artifically segregated off to PS-only, 3DS games would need heavy reworking and there’s basically nothing else last gen from Atlus to quickly bring over. They can go back father to PS2/Wii remasters I guess (Nocturne, Devil Summoner 1-2, DDS1-2, Trauma series) but from this current decade TMS is really the only potential quick port on the table.
 
PREDICTION LEAGUE OCTOBER 2018

Predict how much these titles will sell in the month (from Oct 1 to Oct 28):

[PS4+NSW] Mega Man 11 (27 days)
[NSW] Super Mario Party (24 days)
[PS4] Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (17 days)
[PS4] Soul Calibur VI (11 days)
[NSW] Dark Souls Remastered (11 days)
[PS4] Red Dead Redemption 2 (3 days)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline: October 3 2018 09:00 am (EST)

Attention:
  • Remember for some games it's not only the 1st week.
  • Multiplatform entries are the combined available sales of each platform described.

Rules:
  • Do not edit your post after the deadline. If you do, you'll be disqualified.
  • The official monthly hardware sales will be the sum of weekly numbers for all versions of the system available from Famitsu.
  • The official monthly software sales will be the latest total or the sum of the weekly numbers if the title is release before the period available from the Famitsu Top 30.
  • The official monthly sales for multi-platform releases will be the combined available sales of each platform shown in the title entry.
  • The official monthly sales for games with multiple versions will be the combined available sales of each version shown in the title entry.
  • Any game missing in the Famitsu top 30 will be taken out of the predictions.
 
With development times beeing very long these days, it would be smart to consider to port games to Switch even ones with low sales on WiiU like Tokyo Mirage Session. Right now, Nintendo are rightfully choosing and prioritizing games with the most sales potential most of the time, with the exception of Bayonetta1+2 as an apetizer for the upcoming Bayonetta 3.

But obviously, the selection of WiiU games with high sales potential, that aren't already targeting Switch, isn't that big anymore. Mario Maker might get a sequel, 3D World is possible and Yoshis Wooly World likely won't be considered for a while either.

It will be really difficult to keep up the pace in which Nintendo published games on Switch so far otherwise.
 
If they do port Xenoblade X I hope they do something about the characters. They are kind of ugly.
In XCX some look a bit lifeless,
for good reason
, but they look more detailed and more diverse than the standard boring and sexualized characters in XC2.

XCX has some pandering too but its easy avoidable, because the woman look normal, not like dumb sex puppets (
thats interesting than in XCX they are actually puppets
), and the clothing can be changed to whatever you like.

Judging intelligence based on clothing helps nobody.
 
TMS is one of the best Wii U games, shame it just isnt appealing to anyone outside of big JRPG fans.
I'm sure it will sell well on Switch (not as good as Xenoblade or Octopath ofc, but well enough). And I'm 100% sure that Nintendo will re-release it on Switch in a year or two. As well as Wonderful 101 + bigger games like Pikmin 3.

PREDICTION LEAGUE OCTOBER 2018

Predict how much these titles will sell in the month (from Oct 1 to Oct 28):

[PS4+NSW] Mega Man 11 (27 days) - 78.901
[NSW] Super Mario Party (24 days) - 234.567
[PS4] Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (17 days) - 210.987
[PS4] Soul Calibur VI (11 days) - 56.789
[NSW] Dark Souls Remastered (11 days) - 34.567
[PS4] Red Dead Redemption 2 (3 days) - 89.012
 
In XCX some look a bit lifeless,
for good reason
, but they look more detailed and more diverse than the standard boring and sexualized characters in XC2.

XCX has some pandering too but its easy avoidable, because the woman look normal, not like dumb sex puppets (
thats interesting than in XCX they are actually puppets
), and the clothing can be changed to whatever you like.
The designs aren't ugly, the models themselves are. I think they should use the Elma from 2 and remake the other models in that style if they ever do port it.
 
It couldn't sell well on the WiiU. I don't know how many times that needs to be repeated.

Switch has a much better JRPG reception.
The game couldn't even break Xenoblade X's first week. A game Takahashi admitted was more for a global audience than Japan. TMS will sell better on the switch, that's a given. But so much better that Nintendo is in a rush to put it out for switch? Nah. Xenoblade X and even Color Splash comes before it. Hell, even Wonderful 101 might come before it as the devs actually has desire to push for it, unlike TMS

As I said, TMS is pretty much Nintendo's answer to Persona so they might want to make it grow as a franchise.

And Atlus has no problem porting their games no matter how little they can sell (See 3DS releases this year AND next year).
 
[PS4+NSW] Mega Man 11 (27 days) 50k

I really don't think anything is off the table when it comes to Wii U ports. Even the lesser selling games like TW101 have a decent shot at coming to Switch; it's just a matter of priorities and focusing on the biggest sellers first.

The only games that might not get ported I reckon are Wii Fit U, Kirby & The Rainbow Curse, Game & Wario, Nintendo Land and Starfox Zero; purely for their reliance on the Gamepad's touchscreen/dual screen gameplay, or the balance board in Wii Fit U's case. That being said, Nintendo Land, G&W and Starfox Zero aren't impossible if Nintendo are willing to release a game that requires two Switches... (Well, Super Mario Party requires multiple Switches for some of its game modes, so it's not totally impossible!). Rainbow Curse Switch isn't happening unless Nintendo sort out a proper active stylus solution though... 3DS on the other hand...

Atlus can't do anything if Nintendo doesn't allow it.
I really doubt that Nintendo would actively block it. If anything, they'd be keen to make some actual profit out of the money they pumped into the project. It's really up to Atlus and if they'd be interested in porting it (or getting someone else to port it).

The NSW digital numbers makes no sense here. Captain Toad selling basically as much as Splatoon 2 tells everything really.

I believe their digital numbers are as reliable as VGChartz retail numbers.

And for those that say "well at least it's some sort of number based on some sort of unknown methodology", one could say the exact same thing about VGChartz. So they should be treated the same.
 
I know is just COMG, but there Call of Duty Black Ops IIII pre orders are doing a lot better than the previus COD.

Should we expect some record for the series? Like closer to 200K than 150K first week?
