is a great game, it deserves more sales imo

ID: gqo09al

There are only so many weebs out there. I think it did fine considering

I would 100% buy the game if it came to Windows or Linux or Switch. I don't own a PS4 🙁

Will probably buy a PS5 in 4-5 years, so maybe I can play it then.

ID: gqpvz53

If they released this on the switch I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Seems low considering how highly rated this game is.

ID: gqnzn5x

I feel like it's one of those things where it's audience is niche but they are getting exactly what they want and more, so it's very highly recommended. Mecha doesn't feel like it is as popular as it used to be, and it was released on a console at the end of its life span.

ID: gqod6je

Really? I thought the number was pleasantly surprisingly high. The game is from a fairly niche and low-profile (here in the West anyways) developer, so I would think the sales figures reflect how high the ratings were (and not how high pre-release hype and excitement itself was).

ID: gqoebji

If it had a PC port I might have gotten it.

ID: gqo0aad

You are comparing it to a big budget AAA release. This would’ve been made on a shoestring, and it will have a long tail - quality single player games with good stories always do. I’m guessing it will finish at around 1.5 -> 2m units after a few years, which will be considered a success for Vanillaware. That said, there doesn’t seem to be any good reason for a lack of a Switch port, especially since that is by far & away the biggest console in Japan, where this game would be most popular.

ID: gqofdc4

Try selling this game to the average person though. Even to people like me who have been playing jrpgs my whole life, this one is a hard sell.

ID: gqoa51e

I wouldn't be surprised if it keeps selling for a while. It kinda flew under the radar and many people who played it will enthusiastically recommend it to friends.

ID: gqoux7i

people forget Persona 5 despite being the highest rated JRPG, only sold 2.5M before Royal

Couldn't get more niche than that.

It's that kind of game and it's quite a good performance.

I think if it was published by Square this game could've gotten more attention all around.

I'm playing it right now and the plot revealing itself bit by bit is so mindblowing.

Whoever wrote the game is rlly mega brain

ID: gqp2toh

Right? It was like every hour my entire understanding of the plot got turned on it's head.

Hey I just bought this last night, looking forward to starting it!

ID: gqp32cn

Enjoy it. You’re in for a wild ride

7 : Anonymous2021/03/12 08:42 ID: gqo7cle

Would buy it if it was on PC. Honestly releasing such niche games on only one platform is a weird decision.

ID: gqo9xik

Same for me. Hope in the next future.

ID: gqoec35


ID: gqok2r1

Have they made it clear that they won't release on other platforms? Or do you guys see it possibly coming to pc and such?

8 : Anonymous2021/03/12 13:08 ID: gqopax4

I'm almost done with the game (93% done with the story) and I've been blown away with how good this game is. I've never been a fan of visual novels, so I was skeptical going in, but the story is on a whole other level. It might end up being one of my favorite stories in a video game ever. Absolutely a brilliant game and can't recommend it enough.

ID: gqoyro3

Dude I think you and I had the same experience. Was a VN sceptic, was absolutely blown away.

9 : Anonymous2021/03/12 07:47 ID: gqo3t3w

I'm getting it eventually, but wish it was on the Switch, as usual.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/12 07:40 ID: gqo3bmh

Will it stay a ps exclusive or can we expect it on switch or pc someday. Wish it came out on the vita

ID: gqo5w8p

Yes it would have been a perfect handheld experience! I’m playing Muramasa on vita right now and it’s making me wish I could have enjoyed 13S this way, in bed after a long day of not doing that much.

ID: gqo9yig

I had the same thoughts, but vanilla ware’s previous offerings have been PS exclusive.

ID: gqoa7lq

Sony abandoned the Vita too early, this and so many other great games would be perfect for the platform.

ID: gqpk1yd

It got cancelled for the vita, and I can see why. The battle sections are actually pretty intensive and the vita wouldn't be able to handle it

11 : Anonymous2021/03/12 11:42 ID: gqoib2o

All things considered, this actually seems like pretty decent sales. I remember hearing about how Atelier Ryza selling either 400k or 500k and it being a huge success for them. Games of this kind don't need sales in the millions to be successful. It would be awesome if it did because this game was incredible and more people should play it.

13 Sentinels is also a very difficult game to market... if you try to say anything about what makes it so good would possibly spoil the game.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/12 11:48 ID: gqoips6

I got it based solely on folks in this sub gushing over it. Didn't care for the middle school drama parts, but my god, the rest of the story was the most bonkers shit I've ever went through. I recommend the game to everyone for that alone.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/12 13:03 ID: gqooru5

This game is a genuine masterpiece. If you haven't already bought the game, consider picking it up

14 : Anonymous2021/03/12 09:25 ID: gqo9wqf

please, PLEASE, we need vanillaware games on PC... I was so sad to see Odin Sphere being remastered and not ported to PC, I was so hopeful :'(

15 : Anonymous2021/03/12 12:34 ID: gqom84l

Best game I played in the year

16 : Anonymous2021/03/12 10:25 ID: gqodfk9

for people saying it wont come on other platforms. atlus jp literally asked in their survey if they would like to see this game on other platforms like switch ,pc (steam) and xbox

ID: gqootcu

Too bad the vast majority of us can't read Japanese.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/12 11:07 ID: gqofz9w

This is game so damn good! I finished it this week and it was a blast from start to finish!

18 : Anonymous2021/03/12 11:36 ID: gqohw11

I wish it was released on more platforms, especially PC cuz I'm highly interested in playing this game. This and Sakura Wars.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/12 10:21 ID: gqod7zv

Waiting for a PC port have heard so many good things about this game.

20 : Anonymous2021/03/12 15:11 ID: gqp35w6

Without a doubt one of the best stories ever put in a videogame. Hell, I'd go so far as to say it's among the best of modern science fiction in general.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/12 15:23 ID: gqp4pav

Sounds about right for an Atlus game. Highly underrated when it comes out - low print run - word of mouth spreads about how great it is then... BOOM outrageous physical price

Fantastic game.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/12 15:43 ID: gqp7cbl

Thinking about starting up a new game this weekend and it's either going to be this or Yakuza: Like A Dragon. I have them both purchased, just haven't gotten around to playing either. I bought this game on a whim because of rave reviews, but I still don't really know what to expect.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/12 17:30 ID: gqplugq

Man I reeeally wanna play this after all the praise I've heard, but I'm in my final semester and need to pass these classes lol. Can't afford the distraction

24 : Anonymous2021/03/12 07:00 ID: gqo0hxm

Would have sold more if it was released on other systems. Same goes for their other games.

25 : Anonymous2021/03/12 08:53 ID: gqo81sd

Has anyone played this on PS5?

Haven't owned a console for years. Since PS5 is out now, I find it pointless and wasteful to buy a PS4, but I do have concern about the putative backward compatibility of PS5.

ID: gqo8xr3

Fully backwards compatible, no issues. It uses the PS4 Pro enhancements, and the PS5's better hardware means that the combat sections never have framerate issues unlike on PS4/Pro where it sometimes dipped in the later stages.

ID: gqo8wpj

Played the prologue of some characters on PS5 and it worked fine so far.

26 : Anonymous2021/03/12 10:46 ID: gqoeome

I saw a lot of buzz about this game, but everything I saw when looking into it made me confused, and I ended up not buying. But I likely will at some point.

27 : Anonymous2021/03/12 11:49 ID: gqoiti9

If only I could get a physical edition of the game so I could add to this sale number
