SMTV did just okay, nothing too great. Wonder how it will do over the holidays.

Can't be helped since Nintendo 1st party games are too strong in Japan and only mega awesome titles could be part of the best selling games.

Top 3 best selling 3rd party games in Japan
1. Monster Hunter Rise
2. Momotaro Densetsu
3. Minecraft(Switch)
The strength of Nintendo games doesn't mean SMT couldn't have done better.

SMT are niche series, they are brutal and not exactly newcomer friendly, so despite all that I would it did pretty damn good.

They should've released it earlier and not before Pokemon Game, but it's still going to sell above 1m copies easily.

I'm really glad KNY has flopped in Japan as Japanese customers weren't willing to spend their money on a quick cash grab project that was using the hottest entertainment property to lure a purchase from the masses.

SMT are niche series, they are brutal and not exactly newcomer friendly, so despite all that I would it did pretty damn good.
I wouldn't say it did good. Doing good would be having a higher debut than SMTIV. So this debut is just okay.
They should've released it earlier and not before Pokemon Game, but it's still going to sell above 1m copies easily.
It does have a good shot to be the best selling SMT worldwide. But I expected better from its Japanese debut.
