Thanks, didn't know about that site. May bookmark it now.
Yeah.Game is Gamestop in europe. (We had Gamestop but Game bought the franchise)
besides NOA can't have lost too much money on the game considering the apparent low volume of copies shipped and non-existent marketing (beyond twitter sheanigans).Disappointing, but not too unexpected. The 3DS is doing even worse in the US and Europe at the moment than it is in Japan right now.
i think one thing that helps WarioWare (and may be the reason why Nintendo choose to focus on it over WL despite the later's raw numbers being bigger) is that they're probably not very expensive games to makeSafe to say Gold is no sane man’s definition of a flop.
Despite it's launch sales being fucking miserable over there (10k? Ouch), I doubt it'll be enough of a blow to kill off the entire Mario & Luigi franchise.As for Mario & Luigi... ouch. That series is seemingly on the way out about now, since sales since Paper Jam have been absolutely dire. Why the hell Nintendo aren't pushing AlphaDream to release it on Switch we'll never know, since only the very slowest customer are buying 3DS consoles/games right now, and those people tend to prefer Mario platformers, kart, Pokemon and Zelda to anything more niche.
So there you go.Gameinformer said:Why isn’t this remake on Switch?
Maekawa: It has to with the timing for it releasing on 3DS as opposed to Switch.
Akira Otani (producer, Nintendo): We did think about Switch, but we wanted to maintain the gameplay using the dual screen of the original. That’s the main reason we decided to port to 3DS.
I'm aware Wario Land failing out of focus has probably more to do with the staff reorganisation in 2004 but I'm just saying WW being (probably) a better return on investment may be why Nintendo is not in a hurry to outsource 2D Wario platformers to mediocre no-name developersI’ll say this much, I don’t think Ware is being focused on “over” Land, at least not outside of Smash (not that either series is represented well in that). WarioWare was a thing for what, five years, by the time Shake It dropped? I don’t think Ware has much to do with exactly why Land isn’t getting many games.
That the 3DS is a cheap kid gift bought alongside discounted old games? YeahThat list includes games that didn’t release in 2018, pretty much telling us what we already know.
