I wonder if Bandai Namco are happy with those sales numbers for Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition. They did a tonne of work on the Remaster and yet along comes NSMBUD, does hardly anything in its port(actually removes some features) and outsells TOV by x2.5 times. And that's with the combined sales on Switch and PS4. I notice too that Nintendo are selling NSMBUD a bit cheaper in Japan than they are in the West.

What work did they do on the Vesperia port exactly? It's the PS3 version (which already had these extras) at a higher resolution (1080p on Switch docked and PS4/XB1 instead of 720p). NSMBUDX's Toadette + resolution is technically more than that.. (yeh i know boost mode is gone) so I wouldn't call it a ton of work.

Bandai Namco shouldn't be feeling any type of way. I'm sure they know Mario is not a brand that the Tales series can match up to in terms of sales potential. It would be a zero sum game for them to assume as much without reason to. Sucks Vesperia didn't do better in Japan with that being said. Switch got two solid games in the new year already so it would have been nice to see both push over 100k, but historically speaking it makes sense that NSMBU Deluxe would do unequivocally better.
