Game is Gamestop in europe. (We had Gamestop but Game bought the franchise)
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.
Safe 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’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 list includes games that didn’t release in 2018, pretty much telling us what we already know.
