Ive got a couple copies of this.. and from the first hour into it looks like its going to be awesome. But havent played it much yet. Why did the RPG's for Wii not get any respect...

Amazing game, very traditional but very enjoyable with its own little twists. The soundtrack is A GEM.

Nice game, despite the mediocre Voice Talent. (although I do like some voices like Leslie and Serge) Its a shame most people Ive met that played quit once they fought Deathchanter...

Just finished it. Fantastic game. Battle system and weapon/magic upgrading system is top notch. Good story too. Voice acting is the only thing that needs work. nowhere near the worst I've ever heard though.

I'm amazed at how American sales for this seem to be tracking higher than in Japan. Granted, it's not a HUGE hit like Symphonia, but I'm still surprised that American #s are nearing 100K. Pity it didn't do better than that in Japan though. I've played a little bit of this title, though, but I liked it alot, voice work notwithstanding.

Well i'm certainly hyped for this one. But then there's Tales of Graces and Xenoblade and The Last Story and so many other great games i'm waiting for so i have to split the hype evenly among all of them :P

First let me just say that i f***ing love Rising Star Games for publishing this in europe!

Anyway, I've seen a lot of gameplay videos and i really can't wait to snap this up and get into it. I know it'll be some time before we get it over here but i can wait, i'm already up to my neck in RPG's and have a bunch more coming and some that i still haven't even grabbed yet.

Here's to hopefully fantastic sales in the west Arc Rise, you have a guaranteed sale from me at least :)

While those numbers are definitely not high enough to qualify as a major success, it doesn't seem to be a complete disaster either. I do, however, expect a much bigger audience in America (considering how many people bought ToS 2). After all, isn't that what Marvelous wanted?

I don't know if it's coming in November this year anymore, but it's really hard to know. Release dates can change all the time, ya know.

I think Japanese developers and publishers are looking at projected global totals, espesially in America, more and more than ever before.

It's not a "bomb", but it certainly is a modest debut. I think it'll sell more stateside. I'm willing to bet that if it was released around the time MH3 came out, it would sell a lot more.

JTurner82 posted 08/06/2009, 06:45
The game sold 50% of its stock on opening day, 18K to be exact. I'd say it's on track to make a 25-35K-ish opening week. How far it goes from there, though, remains to be seen. (Hopes it does well for a OST release!)

I think it will sell 35k first week and 70 - 80k in lifetime. A few days left until its release.

FRAGILE was a sales disappointment because it was too niche an RPG. This game looks more like a traditional one, and it has some fairly prolific names attached to it. If Marvelous markets it right, it should find an audience.

i think small developers are having moderate success, problem is we have yet to see a big 3rd part franchise put on the wii.

It will do well for the wii in my opinion. Anyone have an idea abt the best selling game for this developer to compare?

I've got a feeling this game will bomb hard in Japan. These days all Wii software are doomed to fail in Japan. Better release it in the West asap.
