Yes, the legs on Mario Maker will be insane, plus I am sure it will be part of Bundles for a long time.

It's much more worthy of higher sales so it should. However I feel advertising Mario Maker in the US might be awkward just due to it's release date


I went to EB Games yesterday at they had the entire doorways leading in covered with Mario Maker stuff, and very few PS4/XOne. The Mario Maker advertising on the door alone took up 50-60% of the ad space.

 

Granted I'm in Canada so it's not as awkward haha. But if they advertise like that in most of the shops and make the people aware, this should sell fantastic.

 

And once Youtubers flood their channels with them playing levels it might help a ton.



Don't see it happening Splatoon will still stay strong enough to outsell it.



They're gonna have to push real hard for Mario to outsell Splatoon.

IIRC, there is no console bundle with SMM, which is pretty dumb, and I think that alone means that it won't outsell Splatoon.



At first, I thought it was going to be easy, but I wasn't expecting Splatoon to be this huge.

So... I don't know.

Well I've seen that too, but what I mean is tv ads and such. The current MM ads say 11th of September which sounds a lot better, however, people are still really sensitive about that date here (Im fine with it but when you see a MM ad on YT you often see people complain about the date in the comments). The reaction probably wouldnt be as bad in rl as it is on YT, but I could see the news using it to stir up controversy where it doesnt exist (like Tomodatchi Life)

I honestly think it will happen. Even though it won't outsell it in Japan, the rest of the world will make up the difference I feel.

Agreed, I'm sure some news station would probably make a comment on it *cough* FOX *cough*.

But any attention at all that it would give Mario would be good attention honestly. It would be giving it free publicity and I can't imagine anyone not buying the game because of the day it releases. But then again, some people are complete whackjobs



I think so. I predict Splatoon to do around 3 million LT at most, while I think Super Mario Maker will have 3 million at least. Or I could just say I guess Splatoon will do around 3m and Mario Maker around 3.5m.
