Koei Tecmo's Successful Tactics for Profit
#1
https://zhugeex.com/2016/05/koei-tecmo-a...tive-year/

So according to this report, Koei Tecmo has achieved yet another record profit for the 6th consecutive year.

Sales Data:
As of September 30th 2015-
  • Arslan: The Warriors of Legend – 60,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • Nights of Azure – 150,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • Samurai Warriors 4: Empires – 100,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • Nobunaga’s Ambition 201X – 600,000 downloads
As of March 31st 2016-
  • Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13 – 180,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • Attack on Titan – 280,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 – 190,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • Atelier Sophie – 170,000 units sold in Japan and Asia
  • La Corda d’Oro 4 – 30,000 units sold in Japan
  • Dead or Alive 5: Core Fighters (F2P) – 6 Million downloads worldwide
  • My GameCity (Gaming Platform) – 870,000 Members and over 35 games

You know, people used to mock Koei Tecmo for chucking out Warriors games every year.
Who's laughing now eh? Their acquisition of GUST also helps a lot.

Their tactics consist of making their main fighter Dead or Alive 5 a free-to-play game, with DLC enabled. This has caused people to actually try their game, and buy their favorite fighters (along with their tons of costumes).
Even Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires has a free-to-play version, although it's very butchered.  And next in line, we have Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 free-to-play, although I'm not sure when will it be available.

And Koei Tecmo is one of the few developers who still support the Vita!

Their newest upcoming title is Ni-Oh, a Dark Souls-esque game. Too bad it doesn't have character creation, instead we get an old guy as the main character. It's truly a missed opportunity, as I've always liked their character creation system be it in Dynasty Warriors Empires or Samurai Warriors. They even used it for Toukiden!

I still have Deception IV: Nightmare Princess on the backlog, just waiting to be played. Currently busy with Samurai Warriors 4 Empires and Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, though.

I hope Koei Tecmo continues their success in the future! Big Grin

P.S. Damn it's very weird to say "Koei Tecmo". I'd prefer to call them "Tecmo Koei". Much more fluid.

Their success can be attributed to the fact that their games keep the core fundamental that all video games should have. Their games are fun.

Here's looking at the Musou gamse. Yeah, they can be repetitive, but they're addictive, and all early successful games were repetitive but addictive. That's why people like them and support the company.

They're surely keeping spending down if numbers like this sustain them. I do find it odd that they don't release DoA Extreme 3 outside of Japan/Asia looking at DoA 5 compared to the rest.

I think it's because DoAX3 has a very questionable content that couldn't be accepted in USA.
I mean, we have Marie Rose, a child-looking 18 years or who behaves like a child, wearing an extremely risky costume and doing a pole dance.
Yeah, that wouldn't go too well in USA.

Makes sense for why they wouldn't. Don't they have similar things in the mainline games? I know they've got risque DLC costumes.

Most of their risque DLC costumes is not on Marie Rose. Considering in DoAX3 you can gift swimsuit to any girl, you can basically give

THAT costume to Marie Rose.
And then have her do a pole dance.

That wouldn't fly in USA. ESRB will deny it.

That was the Venus costume, for the Vita. Here's what PS4 got, the Fortune:

That definitely makes sense as to why, it's a small step shy of nudity. The comments about no more DoA on PC if there was modding are even funnier seeing some of these costumes.
