Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy got off to a slow start for Square Enix as the publisher admitted the original game underperformed when it launched last October.
In its time latest financial press conferenceSquare Enix commented that despite receiving positive reviews, “Guardians of the Galaxy’s launch sales did not meet our initial expectations.”
However, the game made its way through various sales initiatives (such as store discounts) starting in November, and Square Enix said it intends to “work to continue continued to expand sales to make up for the game’s slow start.”
It proved to be the second shaky start to Square Enix’s Marvel games when its president Yosuke Matsuda remarked in November that Its Avengers game “unfortunately did not prove to be as successful as we would have liked.”
Guardians of the Galaxy is definitely better rated than Avengers, like IGN says it is “awesome” and “another compelling example of how fun a linear, no-frills campaign can be.”
On the other hand, we say that the Avengers are “fine” as its campaign is fun and endearing, but the post-game based on the spoils of being seen as the meat of this meal is unreasonable and too repetitive.
