I have massive doubts that it will do well, financially, for more than one of the reasons already stated. Partially, it's Sega's tradition for putting barely any marketing incentive compared to other publishing houses, which is, in many cases, good, but when they've been releasing fairly good titles as of late, it means that all of the good title get tossed under the rug by the media. That's why similar RPGs as of late () have received almost unanimous raise by the media, all because each publisher used extensive marketing techniques (I.E., hyping) in their advertising campaigns.

Of course, having a competing developer's release in the same month probably doesn't do wonders for your own title, too. :P
