I really hope so. OT is by FAR the better game.

Meh I’m enjoying both equally so far

It’s not going to sell more than 1.5 million.


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sold like 1.4 million. So 1.5 million is a success.


Source? Because there is no way the Torna announcement didn’t move units

Only according to you.

I hope it does, I feel Octopath is an infinitely better game compared to XC2.

Though both games do feel that the devs really were putting a lot of love and effort into it, even with some of XC2 more questionable aspects, in that sense I do feel that both do deserve sales at least.

I very much doubt Octopath Traveler will pass 1.5 million. Its a great game but its a new IP and a 2D sprite title that not many outside of nostalgia would take interest in. Xenoblade is an established franchise and has likely sold 1.4m ~ 1.5m or is currently at 1.6m ~ 1.7m thanks to E3 giving it a boost with its upcoming DLC story.

Totally not surprising coming from you.

Possibly. The gameplay is more readily accessible and it gained a lot of visibility thanks to the demos and Direct focus.

I did guess it'll sell about 1.5 million, not sure whether Xeno 2 got to that point. I know it sold 1 million worldwide really quickly, but I don't know how it went afterwards.

It sold 1.3 million afterwards, making it both the best selling Monolith Soft game and Xeno title. I imagine its at 1.5 million by now but like MonoNopon said, I don't see anyone else buying this other than the nostalgia crowd.

Maybe, when the game eventually goes multiplatform. On Switch alone, not happening.

No, it won't outsell Xenoblade 2.

Lol.

I could see it selling like 200k ~ 350k at best on Playstation 4, it would flop on the Xbox One, and PC is where I could see it doing most of the numbers.
