I know I've missed the boat on this discussion, but 6k seems bad but I don't think it really is for a game like this.

1. Etrian Odyssey consistently sells low in its first month of sales. From digging around, IV sold < 15k in its first month and Untold sold < 10k in its first month. But the games are clearly turning enough of a profit to keep coming across.

2. NISA Online Sales. I'm told NPD doesn't track these. I don't know exactly how big a % they are, but I could certainly see them being a couple of thousand copies between LE and SE (hopefully!)

3. Digital. Though I suspect a niche title like this will probably have a lot more physical sales, consistently I think Vita is better than other platforms for digital %'s.

It's not a fantastic figure, and I'm not sure whether it would be enough for NISA to consider bringing more Experience Inc. games across (it's half of what Dangan Ronpa did, to put it in perspective). But I just wanted to point out that looking at that 6k in a vacuum isn't the whole picture.

That is all!

@Kresnik
On the other hand, this had maybe a tenth of the marketing DR did - if that.

I do think digital might help some though, if it's really such a tiny file. This is one case where I might go that route since it's supposedly so small.

Did Dangan Ronpa have marketing? Do you mean like the Siliconera interviews and stuff? Because I don't remember much else.

No offence but... that's possibly the most unhelpful thing it was possible to type >.<

Fair enough. Normally I see ads for smaller games on VGChartz (Toukiden & Atelier Escha did, for example) so I was expecting it there. Didn't see any on Crunchyroll, but wasn't particularly paying attention for them.

I'm more concerned that NISA didn't do enough (if any) marketing for this game at all. It feel like they were a few steps short of a stealth release.

Do digital and NISA store #'s matter? Sure, but that still doesn't help when the game sold quite low compared to everything else around it, before and after its' release.

Well it good to know NISA are like XSEED & not censored their games, but I do not sure of NISE the EU branch of NIS as demon gaze is a PEGI-12 so it not censored in NA but may be in EU it is.

Is the game bloody violence because for a PEGI-12 it can shows 1 or the other. [mild violence & sexual themes] .

There's no blood, as far as I can tell anyways.

NISA announces any content edits they have to make far in advance and as I PMed you earlier this has only occurred in 2 titles so far. The game got a low rating because theres nothing worthy of a high rating in it.

Hrm....losing interest in the game again...The Gazer is a jerk pretty much :(

These choices suck

And it's annoying how I got a mission, and I can find the items, but it won't let me turn them in because of stupid story reasons :(
