Request: Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. It comes out in only 3 weeks and it still isn't in the top 40, and yet Wii Fit U is!?


BossPuma (on 23 July 2013)

Good for SMTIV, i hope the game sells really well.


Otakumegane (on 23 July 2013)

Aren't niche JRPGs overtracked on Chartz? Doubt SMT will sell more here than it did in Japan.


MDMAlliance (on 23 July 2013)

That's why we will wait for dem NPD numbers.

If it sell like in Japan, it would be amazing. I mean even around 200K (retail + digital) lifetime would be a big success.

Some JRPG's sell better here then in Japan. XenoBlade did that, and Fire Emblem on GBA did that too.

Really not impossible. People seem to forget that Japan is a far less populated than the US. It's a little over 1/3 of the population. So, even though the genre is relatively more popular in Japan, absolute US numbers could easily be higher. According to the numbers we have, several Shin Megami games have sold about as much or more in the US than they did in Japan.

MANUELF (on 26 July 2013)

The one that definitely wont sell close to the preorder numbers is Tales of Xilia, no Tales game has sold over 100k on a sony console in the US

So, SMT4 is going to bomb? A shame...


MDMAlliance (on 24 July 2013)

There's absolutely no basis for what you just said.
