EA did bad at marketing it. Also, when someone finds out the lead character is named Garcia Hotspur... you lose a lot of people. It also suffers from typical japanese design follies and so it is hard to get people on board when they are already iffy.
This is the curse of all Suda games, devoted fan base, solid critical reception, published by companies that have no clue what the fuck they're doing. Seriously, EA and Ubisoft do not have a single clue how to market these games.
Can't wait for the cycle to repeat all over again with Lollipop Chainsaw.
