During Level-5’s “Vision” event in March, a few new 3DS games were announced. One of these was Yo-Kai Sangokushi, which is a new collaboration title in partnership with Koei Tecmo.
I remember before it launched they said they were hopeful it would one day hit over 1 million, and many were doubtful including myself. Its well over a million now, very successful for a game that probably didn't cost much to make on a system with a low install base. Hope NA and EU show Fatal Frame V some love.
I know I'll be getting it. My mother and girlfriend both love scary stuff, so taking FFV over to my mother's place for a weekend and playing it in front of them should make for some grand entertainment. I'm also quite content with Hyrule Warriors. If I had to levy one complaint against it, it's that it takes way too long to grind up the rupees to quickly level the lower level Warriors that I don't use much. Few things can be as hair-yankingly frustrating as trying to score a gold medal, and a second Skulltula appearance, in a mission with lots of Dinolfos, when using a Warrior that is underleveled for the mission at hand. FYI, second skulltulas only appear if you can clear the first objective of a mission, AND score 2500 ko's, without taking more than 4 hearts worth of damage. And Dinolfos have super armor to many of their attacks, meaning they can hit you through even your strong hits. You can imagine how quickly this would ruin your attempts at either a gold medal or a second skulltula, especially if underleveled.X_X
I personally loved Hyrule warriors, bought all the DLC, and still play it from time to time. The game is just fun, pure and simple. Im glad to see people supported it enough for everyone involved to make some money.
Zelda is a household name. It could of been 'Call of Hyrule' or 'Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood of the Twilight Zone' - and it would have sold. (Joking) But on a serious note; like I said, Zelda is a household name, thus equating to high profits. Think Nintendo didn't know that before they agreed to do the crossover? Everybody wins.
