I believe the anime already started airing, but in terms of sales, Tomodachi life started off as having like 50k its first week, or soemthing really low like that, and it ended up selling a tad bit under 1m, so I think the nintendo publishing will carry it to cross over 500k eventually

Looks like it's having some decent legs. Question tho: when does the anime airs in the US?

You have to give a game like this some time. Once the anime series has aired sales will pick up. Looks like it will sell around 100,000 in sales in the USA after 2 month on market. The game only sold 300,000 in it's first 6 months in Japan. It will take time but I'm confident this will be a reasonably popular title in the United States. Not as big as pokemon because it doesn't have the depth to become a hit with core Nintendo fans but kids will love it. I would estimate that long term it will be half as popular in the west as it is in Japan. Which is still pretty good.

It was released on 6th of november and the charts are from the 7th,only one day of sales. How could this be a flop???

Right now it is a flop in the US, however we need to wait a bit to draw conclusions. Remember some games are sleeper hits (even Yokai Watch was a Sleeper Hit in Japan). Maybe the holidays will help a bit and the game's legs will be amazing? Let's wait a see (could be a total disaster as well).

Will the west really enjoy this game though?

I feel like this is another game people want localized just because it sold well in japan. Hell, it may be terrible! We don't know...

Please come to North America I see all the sales for this and Youkai Watch 2 and really want it

Will this ever be localized?

Already should be a million by this post!

Congrats :)

This will likely hit a million before June.
NintendoPie (on 13 May 2014)
So very close to 1 Million. I expect we'll see it quite soon unless this takes a dive-bomb.

This is just slaying. Youkai is one to Watch. *I should be shot for that pun*

This week's numbers were weak, but expected due to the tax increase. (That was this week, correct?)

Seems like L-5 have bottled lightning for the third time. It's impressive how good they are at creating these sorts of hugely successful cross-media franchises and then running them into the ground. Still, should get another 3 or 4 games out of YW before that happens, maybe more if they can stop themselves from fucking up

Youkai Watch is a phenomena in Japan. It's mad.
