Unfortunately, my heart is set on Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom (and that should be quite obvious ), which launches on the same day, but I think that this game is shaping up to be an excellent game in its own right, and I will definitely be picking it up down the road.
The sad thing is that it is true. However, with luck, the fans of the original will hop on it at launch, and UBI did do a fine job of advertising it this go-around. We'll have to see. I hope it does well.

I thought the same thing about Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. The original game apparently sold very well, so I figured it had a built-in audience. The sequel clearly had a bigger budget and more development time. Capcom did a pretty good job with hype and advertising. (Didn't you guys see this genuinely impressive, highly innovative, fourth-wall-breaking, interactive trailer?!? Darned if that doesn't make you want to run out and buy the game on the spot!) And what happened? The game was DOA.
Of course, you could blame the fact that Capcom launched it against New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
The original No More Heroes didn't sell so great even if it did get a sequel, and at this point, I'd be surprised if the sequel even came anywhere close to sales of the original.
And as we've already mentioned, it's launching against Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom.
On the other hand, TvC has a pretty good chance of flopping, too.
Well, in all honesty, both games are against Mass Effect 2. XD
Depsite that, I hope that both games do well. TvC's arcade stick is already sold out at Gamestop, so I consider that to be positive. Another statement of honesty - I'd like to think Capcom knows that they've got a bit of a dark horse on their hands, and have been really pushing a lot of bonuses if the game manages to not flop. I'd bet most people, even some anime fanatics, are a little in the dark about several of Tatsunoko's characters, and this is likely going to be a first exposure for a lot of gamers. If it wasn't a Vs. title, I'd be way more concerned.
And I really hope that NMH:DS does well, too. It really looks like a lot of fun, but I can't afford two new games right now. Well, wait...maybe if it's at Target on Tuesday I can. I do have a $40 gift card...
Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.
