          Ok, that's surprising. I really assumed it was since why the fuck would it not? It's digital, there's no logistics or production related reasons to skip it, like it's the case with manufacturing Xbox discs that no one there would purchase.

                Because Japan doesn't obsessed with Steam, they do not have people who are NO STEAM NO BUY out there. What is so hard to understand here exactly? So yes, there is no reason for Japanese developer to put games on Japanese Steam.

      They don't need anything. Survive just had its potential ruined by a rough development. A sequel to Survive can easily be an amazing game. The combat just needs more depth and the routes need more attention to detail and flags to trigger unique scenarios. So basically just plagiarize Devil Survivor more.

      The designs in Digimon just aren't great, except for a few. The vast majority of Digimon are pretty crap and most normal people aren't going to coom to coomermon, even if they're literally humans, because that's not how people roll. It needs good monster designs, which it doesn't have.

    It's a Bamco published game, they bank on international sales and digital especially with Steam PC releases to make the majority of the sales for these multiplatform games. Doomposting about other Japanese might still be justified to some degree but Bamco has proven at least 4-5 times with at least 1-2 arguable that is AAA quality that they can sell great with horrible Japanese physical sales.

      I think they made enough copies to cover pre-orders and not many more. In particular, the Switch version is out of stock more often, which suggests it very much since carts are more expensive to manufacture than disks. I don't know if this is your first experience with it, but anime games are the one thing you want to go ahead and pre-order because that's how a lot of them are, "pre-order or you don't get a copy".

            And who gets to define the phrase to mean what you are saying? It's a marketing term that is technically correct. Just because the balance of gameplay to visual novel doesn't meet your expectation for the term doesn't mean it's false advertising.
