ARMS has best launch for an unlicensed fighting game in Japan within the past seven years
Posted on 10 hours ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 16 Comments | 0 Likes
Nintendo probably couldn’t have asked for a better debut for ARMS in Japan. The game sold around 100,000 between June 16 and June 18. As a new IP on a system that’s in its early lifecycle, that’s not bad at all.
Some new information really puts into perspective just how well ARMS did. It had the best debut for an unlicensed fighting game in Japan over the past seven years. ARMS beat out the likes of Street Fighter (more than double the sales of Street Fighter V), BlazBlue, The King of Fighters, and Tekken.
Note that due to the nature of the graph (unlicensed), franchises like Dragon Ball and One Piece aren’t represented. Super Smash Bros. also isn’t here, but the graph mainly isn’t focusing on characters from non-fighting games.
Reggie says the 4K audience is “a bit too limited,” talks fan feedback

Don’t expect Nintendo to pursue 4K gaming anytime soon. While that’s something other console manufacturers are starting to focus on, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime believes that the audience is currently “a bit too limited.”
That’s what Reggie shared with The Verge during an interview last week. He stressed the importance of Nintendo reaching as many people as possible and having them engage and enjoy the company’s various games.
Reggie’s full comments:
“The Nintendo mission is to reach as many consumers as possible and to have them engage and have fun with our [intellectual property]. That’s what we try and do. So inherently, we go for a more mainstream audience. Inherently, we want our products to be affordable. We want our products to be easy to pick up and experience, low learning curve. We want our IP to shine as we deliver these experiences.
