Fatal Frame
Xenoblade
Devils Third
Mario Maker
Rodea Sky Solider
Retail Mighty Number 9
Star Fox
And maby legend of Kay aniversery. It depends on how much work Nordic put into it. I don't expect a lot due to it being a budget title.

@rjejr I have to disagree. Between lufia, harvest moon, and river king they have made a name in the west. These are also the guys who developed kirbys squek squad for Nintendo. They also have quite a few cult titles like pocky and rocky. They are far from the best of japaneses old school developers but they can do better than this.

@rjejr I guess my issue is that a company with the pedigree of natsume would chose a smartphone port for e3. Can smartphone games be good? Absolutely but this looks very run of the mill and cheap. Natsume can give us as many smartphone ports as they want but peddling this at e3 is just embarrassing

@Quorthon the only reason bayonetta was made at all was because nintendo payed for it. How did it not benefit from being an exclusive? It's sold about 700,000 copy's to date and still has a year or two of sales to go. The mighty playstation with 80 million units sold barely broke a million with the first bayonetta. it is clear platnuim made monney and ninty was happy with the final product so tell me how that didn't help

@rjejr i use coming for preorder analysis. im not sure if its media create or famatsu that does digital plus physical or at least i cant remember. from what i can tell their digital numbers only jump real high if a game has a sellthrough or if it's pokemon/yokia watch. it seems na is the leader in downloads. makes you wonder why japans vc is so superior doesn't it?

@electrolite77 not true at all. In this thread I have repeatedly said Japan would never be interested but the wonderful 101 also tanked super hard there and that is 100 percent nintendo a fault. No over the top anime style action game like that should have ever failed there. The dismal sales of fatal frame five is also the fault of nintendo's. Stop acting like using sales logic equals giving nintendo a pass.

@Peach64 shooters have been selling pretty well in Japan this whole gen. In a shooter much like an adventure game you embody the main character. In project steam you play as western literary figures. What don't you understand about this? Many you ahold go to a Japanese blog and ask them what they think of zoro or Abraham Lincoln.

@AyeHaley I said it before and I will say it again. Why would Japan want this? All of the characters are from western literature and your leader was a president of the United States. Why would the be interested? Well I still think Splatoon will break the 100,000 mark first week in japan. I stand by this prediction.

@ericwithcheese2 many more than that. What about professor latyton and yolks watch? What about harvest moon? Why hasn't ace atourny made it to Sony yet? Becuse capcom is mostly happy with its performance. Why do you think they announced project x zone 2? Becuse they are satisfied with it. Why does Altus keep bringing game to the 3ds? Third party's do sell just not the typical franchises. Nintendo only owners just have diffrent tastes and the wiiu user base is to small for anything to be a true success. Oh and why did anyone expect project steam to sell in Japan or Europe? You leader is Abraham lincoln for crist sakes. Who else gives a crap about him outside of America. All the others are from western lit and not any from eastern lit. Why would Japan care about it? I live in America and am well aware at how unpopular we are around a good deal of the world. Your leader is Abraham fing Lincoln

@Peach64 splatoon is tracking ahead of pikmin three and has alread beat xenoblade x on the coming chartz. while this isn't a figure and is a small sample size it's none the less a good indicator of whats to come. i'm guessing about 100,000 minimum first week. you can qoute me on that.

@ikki5 so you have one but your complaining about the price of a specific bundle and not all the diffrent bundle while only taking a sample size from one store? wut? and which specific xboxone bundle are you talking about. im positive not all of them come with three games. once i know that i will look at individual prices of these games and compare.

@ikki5 i disagree. the xbox has a total of 3 retail games i would want to play and one is a mutiplat while the other is not out yet so i would be getting less for my money. currently i have 22 retail games on my shelf and several downloaded retail games on my wiiu. i was abel to get a external hardrive with for 60 and seeing as how i didnt need to pay for online subscription i had the extra laying about. i also have a ton of wii game so i could sell my wii due to the wiiu being backwards compatible and i have quite a few wiimotes and nunchucks from 5 years ago that still work so i didn't need to buy extra controllers. how is the xbox one cheaper?

@ikki5 that is mostly the Canadian governments fault for taxing you and nintendo so high. They have dropped the price. Here it's 300 for a u, 349 for Xbox one, and 400 for a ps4. The taxes are doing you in. At least you get free healthcare.

faint commented on Wii U and 3DS Continue Improved Sales in the U...:

@Peach64 I don't think that's why its skipping. This is a big budget indie not a 40 million dollars aaa title. It's skipping becuse it won't be done till late 2017 and the wiiu will be replaced or close to it by then. We may see an nx port depending on what the nx is tho

@123akis to release a console in china they have to have a in country manufacturing plany, a china home office and all of their releases have to be approved by the ministry of culture. that is a huge investment. keep in mind that the hd twins aren't doing to hot there ether

@link422007 it will move as many as it always does. It's a core nintendo title in the same way pikmin is but more popular. Smash and mario kart are loved by core and casual alike so they suffer from small instal in a way metroid will not. The core nintendo home console owners already have a wiiu. All it does is shine a light on how few of us are out their. The core handheld market is much bigger.

@TwilightAngel because it's widely accepted that the wiiu's life span will be short and metroid rarely skips a console. Also many youtubers who have an in with nintendo like game explain keep talking about how they expect it. This is only a single confirm untill they state its a fact but it's enough to get fans excited
