Namco Bandai's Games Didn't Sell As Expected

And now they're expecting a whole lot from AKB1/48!

 
Clash of Titans didn't even sell half as many units as expected.

Namco Bandai wanted to sell the following:

  • Dead to Rights Retribution: 700,000 units
  • Clash of the Titans: 700,000 units
  • Enslaved Odyssey to the West: 1,000,000 units
  • Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom: 1,000,000 units
  • Splatterhouse: 1,000,000 units
  • Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: 700,000 units
  • Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Cosmic Destruction: 700,000 units

Namco Bandai sold, or expects to sell, the following:

  • Dead to Rights Retribution: 350,000 units
  • Clash of the Titans: 250,000 units
  • Enslaved Odyssey to the West: 800,000 units
  • Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom: 300,000 units
  • Splatterhouse: 350,000 units
  • Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2: 1,000,000 units
  • Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Cosmic Destruction: 800,000 units

With exception to Ben 10 and Naruto, it looks like all games either underperformed or are expected to underperform.

Let's hope Namco Bandai has better luck with these targets:

  • One Piece Gigant Battle!: 300,000 units
  • Kamen Rider Series (sales for two titles): 300,000 units
  • God Eater Burst: 500,000
  • AKB1/48: 200,000

It's hard to believe there are really 200,000 people who want to play a game that looks like this:
