Why Dragon Quest XI S Will Be the Switch’s Best Selling 3rd Party Game

Even over Mario+Rabbids. I think Dragon Quest XI S will replace it as the Switch’s best selling 3rd party game. Here are 3 reasons why.

1: Japan

Dragon Quest is bigger than Final Fantasy in Japan. This game could top 2 million alone in Japan. Dragon Quest is only behind Pokemon Smash, and Splatoon when it comes to popularity. That’s quiet an accomplishment.

2: No Ordinary Port

This is like a new game. It has tons of new content, I will name a few of the new features. A 16-bit mode, new story elements, full Japanese voice acting, new creatures you can ride on, a horse racing mode and full orchestrated music. I haven’t touched the surface of the new content in this version. It’s staggering!

3: It’s a huge RPG you can play on the go.

Those are very popular on the Switch. Games like Skyrim and Diablo 3 have done big numbers on the Switch. Also, games like Octopath Travler, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the Final Fantasy games have done great as well. This will be an attractive game to those consumers who need a new RPG itch to scratch.

Square put a lot of effort into this game. The graphics are close to the PS4 version and there are so much new content to warrent a purchase, even if you’ve bought it on the PS4. This will also show people who don’t think 3rd party games can sell on the Switch just how big a game like this can be. Buy this game Nintendo fans!

Sales projection:

Japan: 2.2 million

Europe: 700k

America: 1.2 million.

Other areas: 200k

Overall: 4.3 million physical and digital.

Is Netflix in Trouble?

According to an article by Media Play, more than 14% of Netflix users say they plan on switchinh to Disney plus and cancelling Netflix. How can Netflix combat this?

They can lower their price. It’s one of their biggest hurdles. Netflix without HD is nine bucks a month. Disney plus with be seven bucks a month. Netflix needs to be competitive with their pricing if they want to keep pace with Disney.

The best thing they can do is expand their exclusive content. That will keep customers loyal. Shows like Stranger Things get huge ratings for Netflix, so emphasize that aspect to drive growth and keep their loyal customers.

This is good for consumers in the end. Netflix having legitimate competition will make them reevaluate their business. They may lower prices and give more exclusive content. That’s always a good thing for consumers.
