Lol Castlvania: MOF bombed at retail. 30,000 opening week.

Once monster hunter bombs, maybe developers will wise up and realize that mature and hardcore games don't sell well on the 3ds. Hasn't Snake Eater 3d and revelations to a lesser extent already proven that? Why anyone would want to invest in another big budget game like these is beyond me.

Lol look at the opening sales for Dragon Quest VII on 3DS and then tell me games don't sell on 3DS

Maybe they'll wise up and realize that metroidvania is what people actually like?

Why would people buy Snake Eater 3D when they could have gotten the HD collection? Also, Capcom pulled some price shenanigans before the release, remember when RE:R was $50 up until a week before launch? As for Castlvania, it continues the LoS reboot, which people didn't like.

Maybe I should have said games that appeal to westerners.

Dragon Ques will not do anywhere near that good in the West. Nintendo is dominating Japan. But it is obvious that there is no market for mature games in the West.

Well Castlevania MOF is considered a bad game, and metal gear solid 3 is considered a bad port
They didnt sell well because they were bad games/versions not because they were dark and for adults

Tetrous, do you really think Konami will do another 3ds castlevania game after this catastrophe? This completley bombed in comparison to Lords of Shadow for the PS3. When Lords of Shadow 2 comes out and if it does well, these 3ds sales are going to look even worse.

Companies should not be rewarded for making terrible games
