Scarlet Nexus debuting with 30,000+ total copies sold for PS4/PS5 sounds pretty underwhelming for a new IP, and they have freakin' anime series that just premiered. Is Bandai Namco hoping peeps outside of Japan will pick up the slack?

The game was always going to sell more overseas. That is where majority of sales reside. This isn't like Dragon Quest or Momotaro, for example, where Japans sales would outsell everything worldwide because overseas players aren't into those sort of games.

I'm not familiar with video games at all, however, why would people buy a golf game? Sounds so boring lol
