The name of Hirokazu Hamamura certainly means nothing to you, but this man is the president of the powerful company Enterbrain which notably publishes the weekly Famitsu in Japan.

In the Land of the Rising Sun, Hamamura-san is therefore a listened voice when, for example, he responds to an interview on the local site “Mantan”. During this interview, he spoke about the video game market in Japan in broad outline, explaining that the situation for home consoles has improved in recent years, in particular thanks to the unexpected success of the Switch and the relative comeback of games. Japanese, who have logically hit hard on the archipelago.

Hamamura cites in particular Final Fantasy XV, like it or not, remains a big catalyst for PS4 sales. Speaking of the RPG’s commercial potential of Square-Enixthe game is a huge success » sold 7 million units since launch according to the latest figures available to him. If there is no doubt that glory is there for this key title of the Japanese market, it should be noted that the publisher has never extended the life of an “offline” adventure so much. a Final Fantasy. With all the DLC and other fun that revolve around the title, it is logical that sales are maintained over the long term, while waiting, one day surely, for a GOTY version that will bring all this content together.

Finally, it was a question of Monster Hunter Worlda game ” with a potential of 10 million sales over the long term“, since it is also a question of maintaining the interest of a title, and therefore of sales, well after its marketing. The RPG of Capcom could also experience a craze beyond the expectations of its publisher since the beta was a huge success, as were the pre-orders which are higher than expected.

Mount Hunter World will be released on January 26 on PS4 and Xbox One, while waiting for the PC version in the fall. There is no doubt that it will pull console sales in its (brutal) way.
