I can't see this selling more than a couple thousand units.

I don't think many people are even watching this in Japan, especially when mecha fans now have better options such as Aldnoah.Zero and Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen. It may only sell 500 copies at best, if it turns out to be ok, I'll import it when it's cheaper since I dropped the anime halfway.

hmm, the question is: Will this get a release outside of Japan?

Also, I seem to share both Asherfischell and Hoppy800's comment. I mean if this show is not getting a lot of views in Japan, then the sales of the game in Japan may not be good.

I don't get it. This is supposed to be one of the worst selling anime in recent times, and it's getting a game?

Hardly a smart move from what we know.

They must have started producing the game at the same time as the show was starting production. By now, even if the show is expected to flop hard in sales, they might have invested too much time and money on the game not to release it.

I wonder if the other characters will be neglected in the game too.

Not surprised here this anime gets a game.It is a very good anime in all perpectives,but not all people have good taste.M3 and Argevollen are the 2 best mecha anime of 2014.Maybe M3 will also be in the next Super Robot Wars too.

While it's true this game will most likely tank, I can't agree with Aldnoah.Zero being a "better option for mecha fans". Unless you mean it as enjoying it like you can enjoy Code Geass R2 & most of Valvrave.

Yeah, I agree this game is not going to sell very well in Japan, but still I wonder if the publishers is going to think about the overseas market for this particular game.
