I know it's not going to happen, but I'd love to see more of the SRW OG games in the west. The two that were released in North America were two of my favourite games for the GBA.

It's worth noting that the actual sales of those games were pretty tepid, with only 39,000 units on PS3 and 19,000 on Vita, making this one of the franchise's weaker launches in Japan.

Bandai Namco really should have tried to get those games out a week earlier for the Obon holiday week.

Historically, the week after Obon, just like the week after Golden Week in the spring, has very low sales.

Nicholas: I don't have data on the other OG launches, though I'd imagine they wouldn't do as well as the games with licensed mechs. That'll most likely be factoring into it as well.
