Will Fire Emblem: Three House reach over one million units in sales?

In relation to upcoming games for the Nintendo Switch one of the many titles that everyone is talking about right now is Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The game is a tactical RPG which is currently set to appear sometime in the second quarter or 2019 and there is still very little we know about the game since its reveal trailer from E3 2018. While we did see footage of Fire Emblem: Three Houses there have been other discovers about the game that has been made. In FE: Three Houses we have discovered that people can move their characters around freely to explore different areas as the setting takes place in a fictional world known as Fodlan.

Commanding troops in battle along with a robust combat system that includes actions such as: Magic, Attack and Combat Arts looks rather interesting along with the visuals and mechanics of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Seeing how popular Fire Emblem: Warriors was on the Nintendo Switch back in 2017 there is no doubt that the series is still an attraction after being around for almost 30 years. FE: Warriors had reported managed to sell at least one million copies worldwide since its release and seeing how highly anticipated Fire Three Houses is for the Nintendo Switch it can possibly sell even more within a short period of time.

Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy will now be backwards compatible with the Xbox One

As far as upcoming releases are concerned in relation to 2018 blockbuster news was recently announced regarding the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. For those who have played Final Fantasy XIII, FFXIII-2 and Lighting Returns between ’09-’13 you will be happy to know that each game will be be backwards compatible with the Xbox One on November 13th. In fact, Microsoft had revealed this info regarding the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy at their XO18 in Mexico City just recently which was something that caught the gaming world by surprise.

However, there some people who are not surprised by the announcement regarding the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy being playable on the Xbox One. After all, its well noted that Square Enix was bringing older games within the Final Fantasy series such as FFVII, FFX, FFXII along with FF Crystal Chronicles to the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2019. In fact, some people were probably expecting FFXIII to eventually be one of the many games that would be playable on the Nintendo Switch. But then again, was a more recent entry in the Final Fantasy series compared to titles that came before it.

The visual quality of Final Fantasy XIII would most likely be more superior on the Xbox One opposed to the Nintendo Switch if Square Enix actually tried to port it. Besides porting all three Final Fantasy XIII titles to the Nintendo Switch would probably be very time-consuming for Square Enix overall. Despite, Final Fantasy XIII trilogy not being the most popular games within the series it’s still very exciting to know that those titles will now be playable on a current generation console. The Final Fantasy XIII trilogy will not be playable for the PlayStation 4 unless Square Enix decides to make separate ports of each game for that console.

Could Xenogears have been more popular on the Sega Dreamcast?

When it comes down to forgotten RPG classics from the 90’s one of the many titles that comes to mind is the Xenogears game for the PS1. Ever since, Xenogears was released 20 years ago it was seen as the most underrated and critically acclaimed RPG titles of the late 90’s. There are some would argue that Xenogears was overshadowed during the late 90’s due to the release of more popular RPG’s such as Final Fantasy VII & VIII which became two of the best selling titles for the PS1 overall. Had Xenogears appeared on another game console such as the Sega Dreamcast which was also released in 1998 the game definitely could have stood out much more than it did for the PS1.

However, Square Enix was never too big on working with Sega back in the 90’s in relation to RPG’s. Also, Sony’s PS1 was much more popular worldwide in countries such as Japan and America than Sega’s Dreamcast console was between the mid to late 90’s. As a game Xenogears could of stood out more on the Dreamcast as a RPG especially since there were not to many games like it on the 128-bit console. But in terms of overall popularity Xenogears on the Dreamcast may have been on the same level as it was for the PS1.

Could Final Fantasy X have worked on GameCube during the early 00’s?

As many people know Final Fantasy X was one of the most popular RPG’s of the 00’s. Since its initial release for the PlayStation 2 back in July 2001 Final Fantasy X has managed to sell at least 8 million worldwide foe the PlayStation 2. In fact, Final Fantasy X is considered to be within the top five of the best selling games for the PlayStation 2 in general. As popular as Final Fantasy X was for the PS2 there are many who wonder whether or not this game could have also been a huge success on the Nintendo GameCube as well.

In theory, Final Fantasy X could have definitely have ended being one of the best video games aside from the first party Mario titles on the Nintendo GameCube . However, the relationship between Nintendo and Square Enix was still a bit rocky during the early 00’s. Also, Square Enix was more interesting with doing business with Sony and Nintendo’s relationship with that company was not too good following the fallout both companies had back the 90’s.

Could Final Fantasy Tactics A2 have worked on the Nintendo Wii?

When we think about popular Final Fantasy games that were available on handheld console Final Fantasy Tactics A2 is a title that comes to mind. Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was probably one of the best RPG title that Square Enix has ever made for the Nintendo DS. In fact there are some who would argue that Final Fantasy Tactics A2 could possibly have been more of a success if it was available for the Nintendo Wii back in the late 00’s.

While Final Fantasy Tactics A2 was filled interesting content and decent gameplay there are some who would argue that in terms of quality it was not quite on the same level as Final Fantasy Tactics Advance which came out in 2003. For whatever reason Square Enix decided not to make Final Fantasy games for home based Nintendo consoles back in the 00’s. It really makes you wonder whether or not if Final Fantasy Tactics A2 could have hade more success than it did if it was on the Nintendo Wii during 2007.

Could Persona 5 work on the Nintendo Switch?

When it comes down to the Persona series it has managed to become popular in the RPG genre of gaming mainly on PlayStation based console.  When Persona 5 was released for the PS4 the game had managed to sell over one million units worldwide and is considered to be one of the best RPG titles of the 10’s decade.  The fact that Person 5 was featured on the PS3 and the PS4 may have been one of the many factors that contributed to the popularity of the game itself.  If Persona 5 was released for multiple game consoles including the Xbox One or the Wii-U the game may have sold less than it did on the PS4.

However, having Persona 5 on the Nintendo Switch would be different considering how popular that console is right now along with the fact that it managed to sell over 10 million units worldwide in less than a year.  Having Person 5 ported for the Nintendo Switch would sound great in theory especially since the console does not have too many RPG’s like it.  However, Atlus doesn’t really have any plans on bring Person 5 to the hybrid console in near future.

We all remember when Wasteland 2 came out  a few years ago for multiple game systems such as the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and even Microsoft Windows.  This post-apocalyptic game was arguably one of the best PC games of 2014-2015 and despite its level of popularity seemed better of on Microsoft Windows than the PS4 or the Xbox One.  There were various aspects about Wasteland 2 that contributed its replay value including a great plot along with branching storylines based on the decisions that players make throughout the game.

When it came down to sales revenue Wasteland 2 was impressive considering the fact that it reported managed to generate over $1.5 million within four days of its release.  While Wasteland 2 was one of the hottest PC games of 2014 its hard to tell whether or not the game will be as popular as it was a few years ago once its released for the Nintendo Switch.
