One of the first must-have 3DS titles under-performs sales-wise based on estimates.
Sad to say but team ninja WAS Itagaki. D.O.A. IS his baby. Shame on tecmo. Ninja gaiden as we know it IS because of him. They're going the way of activision......... sad.
considering teh changes that were made from DOA4 to this one i have no doubt that DOA can survive pretty well without Itagaki
I'm sure it will "survive" but i mean, he created those charecters.Its HIS vision. just because you own the "rights" doesn't really make it your own. at least he put his stamp on it. we all know who brought these franchises back from the dead.
meh im not surprised at all they slapped on the hype for a niche game that not everyone plays if you factor all the series of DOA into the amount sold and the amount of consoles that platform has sold you can get some estimates of the fan base judging by the numbers you can get your hands on, doa doesnt sell that much compared to other fighters... so on a system with less than 4mill world wide the 3ds sold 1 million in americas and this game which has a cult following has sold less than 20k i dont see the problem what were they expecting 100k?
i'd still play it
I think that this game will do allright, just needs more time so more people would buy more 3DS'es :)
