They should of never released it on the 3DS anyway! They should released this on the PS3 or the NGP. I feel sorry for Tecmo because this game look amazing and they put alot of hardwork into it.

You can't blame people for being disappointed, really. In the UK, 3DS games have been out of the top 40 charts for weeks despite making the top 10 at launch, with Steel Diver also failing to sell well (it never made the top 40 charts either), so expectations were high on Dead or Alive Dimensions. Of course, it could sell well in the long run, as you mentioned, but Dead or Alive Dimensions definitely deserved better first week sales, it's a quality game that many ignored.

there is some truth in your words :) I think it's not only that people ignored it, I think people need to buy many 3DS'es, then they 'll buy more software too :)
