Look at number 18. I know it's a remake, but for those who didn't buy a Wii U, it's pretty much a new game. And SMM2 beats the crap out of it saleswise.

Are you serously making this very dumb comparison? Seriously? NSMBU is not even a remake. It's a port of a game that reuses assets from previous NSMB games. NSMBU looks like a Wii game. NSMBU never was  a true new 2d Mario adventure

Beg to differ on that.

And while a new 2D Mario should outdo NSMBUD, I don't think it will beat SMM2. In case you didn't notice, many are taking SMM2 as their 2D Mario already.

The true Mario 2d is not a New Mario formula. One AAA 2D Super Mario, with new worlds, enemy, tons of new lore, nem power up. The true sequel of 2D Mario and Mario lore in general. This Mario game have great sale potential, GTA single console levels, like NSMB Wii, DS, Super Mario Bros. 3

A Mario editor is no 2d Mario. A true 2d Mario adventure would be charting better.

Is Mario Maker underperforming or something?



I continue to be quite impressed by the performance of Mortal Kombat 11. I didn't expect a fighting game not called Smash to still be in the top 10 several months after release.

Amen. NSMBU was lazy trash even in 2012, and on Switch even more so.



Third month in a row and no numbers. Is there even a point in these threads anymore?

At least, we aren't getting the same tired 10 pages of people being butthurt to each other with some trying to downplay the success of the consoles who "won". 

In that sense, I like this new found peace. Yet ... I'd do like some actual numbers still which is sad ...



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Damn Switch software is killing it.



A little bit late, but if I did not mess up, these are the possible ranges for the August results. Got June and July somewhere as well.

[NSW] 238K - 262K
[PS4] 178K - approx. 200K (not up YoY, otherwise Switch would be the upper bound)
[XB1] 98K - 102K

Thanks a lot. It's highly appreciated :)

Thank you. Could you share June and July when you get the chance?
