Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Franchise Tier List (New Poll for Zelda tier)

Which Tier does Zelda belong in terms of sales? SS sold 4 million but HD Zelda on WiiU might sell more.

A-Tier
B-Tier

This Tier list is based on Current Sales Potential.

Placement is based on the sales of the latest Major installment to the franchise + some speculation to the known upcoming major installment.

All tier lists are done off VGChartz figures.

Special thanks to Jaywood for doing the Sony and Microsoft tier lists.

2-26-13

Main Pokemon Series placed in S, Mystery Dungeon placed in C, Console Pokemon placed in C. (The rest of the lot, rumble, snap, ranger,spin-off crossovers. Show no sign of even a possible sequel yet. Pokemon Ranger is debatable for D-tier)

Mario Sports added to C-tier. (Golf,Baseball,Soccer,Olympics entrys have all around equal amounts, usually C-tier range. Olypmics is an outlier as it rides the hype from the olympics themselves. Courtesy of Player2)

Style Savvy added to D-tier (Courtesy of Player 2). Lol my personal opinion is that this will drop to E-tier quiiiiittteeee soon.

After some discussion, Punch-out will be added to C-tier (SwansVanTerif)

Sigh. I wish Kirby did better in sales - deserves so much. T_T

Edit: Oh shit I hope I didnt stop you from making more reserve posts D:



This is an interesting idea. One that I wonder if Nintendo actually uses.

Is Star Fox considered a dead series despite the fact a remake came out for the 3DS because I would at least put it above "Dead".



I believe Kirby shouldn't be in the rest tier... ( shit it is actually in the C tier, blind me )

Depending on how Wii Fit U does you might have to move it down a tier. 

How do you rate these anyway? When one of the games in a franchise sells above it's current tier do you automatically move it up? Or does the franchise have to continually sell at those amounts? :o

It's kinda based off current potential, so if the latest game/Known upcoming game has or is looking to overcome a certain threshold.
