Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: Pikmin > Metroid with Wii U

Do you agree?

Yes!
No...

I am here with my 2nd prediction of the year! 

I predict that Pikmin will become a bigger franchise for Nintendo than Metroid with the Wii U. The best selling Wii U Pikmin will outsell the best selling Wii U Metroid. If they both have the same # of games, we can count their combined sales. (Pikmin 3 + Pikmin 4 > Metroid U + Metroid U 2)

I don't exactly understand why people count Metroid as a main Nintendo franchise. IMO, Kirby, Animal Crossing, Paper Mario, and many others are bigger and more important to Nintendo. On the other hand, Pikmin isn't really taken to seriously and people like to dismiss it a lot. 

 

Pikmin hasn't had a game in nearly a decade and just like Prime did for Metroid, I believe Pikmin 3 will boost the Pikmin franchise to new popularity.

 

What do you guys think?

What about if there's no Metroid game?

Sure. I think people will be pretty hyped for HD Metroid, but Pikmin is coming out at the beginning of the console's life, after a LONG drought of Pikmin games, whereas Metroid will be coming off the back of... Other M...

Still think both will sell pretty well in the long run.

I don't remember what I was going to put here.

no, no, no!!!



metroid u will do very very well especially if the rumor Retro Studioes Title is it! I predict Pikmin 3 will sell 3mil lifetime, but metroid might be barely over IMO.

BTW Metroid is a very important franchise in nintendo, its more hardcore than most nintendo IPs, and its awesome!

Metroid may be one of Nintendo's more Core franchises but does that make it automatically more important? 

 

On a side note, I have a feeling, Pikmin will become a more Core franchise too. It already is in terms of Gameplay IMO but the Wii U game(s) will take it up a level

Well, considering that Metroid's never sold more than 2m it's not that crazy... It's weird how ppl think of Metroid as a major franchise when it never sells more than 2m...

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.
