Digimon Story still a top PSN seller, so why no Next Order?

How come America is supposedly done and dusted with the Vita and Europe is considered a little stronger in support? Looking at the download charts from both regions, clearly America is more on the ball.

On the positive side, Darkest Dungeon had a decent impact on both sides of the pond, congrats to Red Hook for that. But the big question remains, if Digimon Story is still a top seller, why has Bandai not bothered bringing over Next Order? All the content is there, it only needs a small amount of effort!

  1. My theory is that BN (and other publishers of course too) want to ensure that the Vita platform is out of discussion for the future since they see no future for the Vita. Make sure people stop clamouring for Vita editions - and what better way than to quash a highly popular series with excellent sequel potential?
    I guess I'm a cynic, but that's the only angle that makes sense to me.
    Long-term strategy is what execs sweat about.
