I wouldn't blame Bandai Namco on that print, it's a release of a compilation which includes one game that didn't sell anything special and another english only game that was never released in Europe so nostalgia isn't really strong there.

Scarcity is another way to drive up interest for minimal sales releases, they did the same thing with Tales of the Abyss on 3DS a decade ago.

I still have to do a 50k ride roundtrip to retrieve my copy in the nearest Fnac that still had stock on release day

As alluded to earlier, very strong start from Baiten Katos.

On the other hand, it could have been perceived as a new game in a market where jRPGs are popular.

It is a new game
But also a product where most of the audience you target won't be able to understand a word on what is a story driven experience.

UK might be fine, Nordic markets as well (but they're incredibly small), but for FIGS market (which is the vast majority of the European market) that's a death sentence as far as potential goes.
 
Reflecting the ratio on the physical market for this type of game in France?

These are all regular editions, right?
So, where are the Switch copies?

To answer you question, no. This might be indicative of the expected ratio in sales between the PS4, PS5 and Xbox versions at launch (Series, or otherwise) at one retailer (and one only) *if* it is all the stock one retailer ordered for this title at launch. If it is just part of the stock that was photographed, then we have no way to tell.

Well, the caveat here was that the first game, comparatively to its sales in other regions, did decently well in France when it was released iirc.

Switch version dropping is definitely unexpected given it was flat at UK retail and way up at Spain retail.

Looking at eShop chart rankings EAFC 24 should be up everywhere over FIFA 23 Legacy, unless Switch digital sales in France have totally collapsed YoY across the board.

Definitely surprising overall. Is the lack of Mbappé on the cover this year a reason behind the drop for the more casual (Switch) audience ?

Half serious :p
Or maybe it's a consequence of France losing World Cup final last year. x)

The way EA Sports FC 24 sales trended between the moment pre-purchases started being tracked up until now has been way much stronger than what happened with EA Sports FIFA 23 Legacy Edition to be explained merely by a software decline; it would need to be massive for that to be fitting and I see no sign why France should be seeing such an abnormal decline.

For context

Comparison between EA SPORTS FC 24 preorder rankings and EA SPORTS FIFA 23 Nintendo Switch Legacy Edition preorder rankings, both week 38 of their respective year, 5 days before release

Chart / FC24 preorders / FIFA23 preorders

FR / no. 9 / no. 47

Sources: Week 38 2023 (this thread) and Week 38 2022

Comparison between EA SPORTS FC 24 first week and EA SPORTS FIFA 23 Nintendo Switch Legacy Edition first week (more precisely first 2 days of sales+preorders, for both)

Chart / FC24 / FIFA 23 Legacy

FR / no. 1 / no. 3

Again, not the kind of difference in performance across the French eShop ranking that can be explained just by a software decline; it wouldn't surprise me if the Switch was starting to slow down on this front with the 7th anniversary looming in the horizon but due to how the sales are trending, as well as looking at retail software sales, there's no indication that software sales through the eShop are witnessing the kind of decline that would explain it.

Therefore, I think that something weird happened with the tracking at some levels to the point where I don't feel confident in believing the Switch digital portion of the data.

Branding man. It feels like it wasn't a clear win in all regions.
 
Did the higher price over the Legacy Editions maybe negatively affect the Switch version's sales of FC24? It didn't in other regions though.
Are people in France more price sensitive than in other countries?
 
The way EA Sports FC 24 sales trended between the moment pre-purchases started being tracked up until now has been way much stronger than what happened with EA Sports FIFA 23 Legacy Edition to be explained merely by a software decline; it would need to be massive for that to be fitting and I see no sign why France should be seeing such an abnormal decline.

For context





Again, not the kind of difference in performance across the French eShop ranking that can be explained just by a software decline; it wouldn't surprise me if the Switch was starting to slow down on this front with the 7th anniversary looming in the horizon but due to how the sales are trending, as well as looking at retail software sales, there's no indication that software sales through the eShop are witnessing the kind of decline that would explain it.

Therefore, I think that something weird happened with the tracking at some levels to the point where I don't feel confident in believing the Switch digital portion of the data.
I mean...one of the games in front of FIFA 23 was 90% off. Don't really know about Disney Dreamlight Valley.

950.000 units sold for HL in France, 50% of which at retail.

Best selling WB game in France.

They are expecting HL to be one of the best selling Switch games of the year, given the audience fit and the large userbase.


great result!
about the bolded: it could totally be, but will depend also on the quality of the port.
I wonder if they are waiting after...Wonder, to show it and start the promotion

Switch and Xbox SKU crossed streams while AC did extremely well (Ps5 SKU over EA FC !).
 
I don’t think that any console generations had such a staying dominance this late in their life.

It is like AC Brotherhood for PS2 existed and charted.
This is a shorter time after the PS5's launch than Brotherhood was after the PS3's launch and especially the X360's launch. Gotta keep that in mind.
