Aunque ya se sabía, el juego ha vendido fatal (sorpresa!) y a parte de lo obvio (que yo he sido el único que lo ha comprado) me sorprende que no se den cuenta de lo mal que lo han hecho con la promoción de este juego más encima de una saga que era de eShop y precio reducido....en fin, el juego es muy recomendable, pero no se puede hacer nada por el cuando ya de primeras Nintendo no ha puesto ningún empeño de su parte (cosa contraria que está pasando con Wario Ware Gold).
The 3DS isn't exactly garnering a ton of attention around the world. It might be selling well here in the states, but those who are just picking up the system now seem to be quite young, and they're playing the huge backlog of games that came to the system in years gone by. That makes it hard for a new game to gain any traction, even if that title has the backing of Nintendo.
Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers launched on the 3DS awhile back, and it seems that not too many people have picked it up. In an interview with Kotaku, Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe and Vanpool’s Jun Tsuda talk about how they think people missed the game, and their desire to put Dillon into an RPG.
“I really only know about what people are saying online. What I see personally is that many people are not aware that this game has been released, and I want more people to play this game. I’ve actually been wanting to make an RPG with Dillon as a main character for a while. I am hoping this game reaches a wide enough audience that we can make that plan come true in the future.”
“I bet the players who like Dillon and the setting actually are pretty secretive about it. I would like more people to know about the game. It’s not like a popular restaurant, so there won’t be a sudden crowd or a long wait time or anything. So, to any new players who have an interest now after reading this article, please give the game a try. You won’t regret it.”
What do you guys have to say about Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers? Were you unaware the game launched? Do you just not care about the franchise? Are you done with your 3DS?
