It's hard not to laugh at the situation.
I mean Shimbori clearly gives no fucks about anything anymore, and Joey stepped on one hell of a landmine himself. Nothing good came of this situation but damn was it funny.
I haven't seen anything about guaranteed pickups gone, but the option select situation appears to be. If you miss a ground throw during a tech, you get the full "long" animation which puts you into deep disadvantage.
They can -target- any insane number they want. They wanted 10 million lifetime sales. Maybe they will get it. Probably they won't.
Regardless, it's only a flop if it fails to generate a substantial profit. At 5 million sales, they long since passed that point.
@Hold_Junkie93 if more than 5 million in sales is a flop, somebody's standards are way too high. It's Square-Enix logic. Anyway, there is definitely a disconnect because one genre is action and the other is horror. But horror came first and the action half of the franchise isn't all that...
