For comparison Pirate warriors sold over 650k, Kens rage over 380k and gundam reborn over 120k. If the game couldn't even break 100k in Japan, is there even any hope of a dynasty warriors reskin selling better in the west?

I'm predicting the game will barely sell 200k in it's lifetime at most.

Edit: just noticed I made a totally off typo in the title. Hyrule warriors sold 57k not 69k (no idea why I put 69k...) :p

Well correctly if I am wrong but Japan doesn't really care for Zelda much do they? At least not to the extent the west does.

Those are just the sales of the PS3 versions in the first week.

Yes, One word.

Zelda.

The game will do at least 200k in NA alone.

They love musou games though. So much so that they'll buy over half a million copies of one in a single week. The fact that Zelda musou didn't move any systems, even with the marketing, collectors edition, and focus on Lana, is not very good.

Japanese home console market has tanked in the last 4-5 years. There's your source. 3DS and Vita aren't doing much better.

Well the Wii U has a low install base. Its the highest selling current gen Musou if I remember correctly from the other dozen topics.
