Yeap as OP says. This is a port but its got some things going for it.

 

Anywho original is over 8mil, can this port do 12mil shipped+digital lifetime ww?

(Btw this isnt one of the bold predictions im making like splat2, im thinking mk8d will do around 8mil-9mil)

If Switch has even half of Wii's sales, the answer is a definite yes and then some.

Trump and truth are parted shores bisected by a vast sea of spin, dodge and alt-facts.

Releasing this early on in the NS' lifetime makes it possible if they don't plan on doing MK9.

If Switch sells over 50 million and another Mario Kart doesn't release on it than yes.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

It obviously isn't a prediction because you are merely putting a question in the room. This kind of threads are getting a bit tiresome too. You throw out a high number without committing to it, some people make the mistake of committing to the numbers they post in your threads and then they may get roasted while you are off the hook.

There's some merit to these threads because some people are oh-so-sure that Nintendo is going to fail, but you make it easy for yourself. What really bothers me here is the frequency of these threads.

On topic: Yes, it can. If Mario Kart 9 doesn't release until late 2019, the chances are pretty good.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Sure. Especially after seeing the Target promotion and stuff they've got going for MK8D it seems like Nintendo is going to make this a huge thing and market the shit out of it everywhere.

I would of made it clear though. I done it in the past, as for the frequency of me making these threads, i did make a couple this week. I rather do it all but im trying to spread it out somewhat. Well tbh this was the last one i was going to do for awhile. Next would be splat2 WW of 10mil+ but that i was going to wait intill the summer for.

 

Anywayz my bad :/



It's certainly possible, but it will heavily depend on Switch lifetime sales and when MK9 releases.

Ignore me, I'm a fucking idiot.

As some others have said. It depends on when MK9 releases and how many Switches are sold.
By the way I don't remember a port outselling the original version before.

That's a really high number, though perhaps it's possible depending on how large the install base becomes, as well as if there's plans for a bundle, which seems very likely to happen.
