Sure it is, Animal Crossing on DS & 3DS both sold ~12 million, significantly more than any Zelda game excluding BotW.

I'll admit I didn't realize any of them sold that well. A series I haven't paid attention to and I've never been into handheld gaming. I was thinking it was a series that sold more like half of that. I do have a good friend of mine who is waiting to purchase a Switch until AC releases. 

Yeah if you live in America or Europe it might not seem as big as other franchises since close to 50% of sales come from Japan.

It's big in the west but huge in Japan.

I've lived in the US my whole life and have been in the UK the last few months. I know people who enjoy the series, but nothing like who plays Pokemon and Mario Kart.

Oh honey i think you will be surprised about the amount of people waiting for this. Chrissy Teigen alone on Twitter will make publicity for the casual gamers lol. It's a crazy loved and popular franchise and i'm certain it will push a lot of consoles. I've never played it but will buy the switch game cause why not. 

I do hope I am wrong and it sells on par with previous entries in the series and causes a large bump in Switch sales. I love my Switch. It is the fist Nintendo console I've owned since the N64. I am hoping they re-release some older games on the Switch like Mario Galaxy and Pokemon X/Y & Sun/Moon.

Well i don't know, they don't seem really tempted to port 3D Mario games since they always perform well. I think it would be underwhelming if the next mario game is just a port of Mario Galaxy. And pokemon, i don't see that happening either since they like remaking all of them but i mean that's pretty much the same but you will have to wait longer for X/Y, like pretty sure it won't come before end cycle of the next Nintendo console lmao. The next one is the 4G remake which should be the next game they make or after a sequel to Sw/Sh.

I'd be all for a remake of the 4th generation games. Only Pokemon games I've played are Blue, Yellow, Let's Go Eevee and now Sword. As you can see we have 1st gen 3 times and now the 8th gen. While I enjoy the series I didn't think it was worth the money to buy a Nintendo handheld to play them.

Yeah Animal Crossing is going to be one of the biggest games Switch ever gets, that thing is an absolute monster with the casual crowd, I know people who normally would never touch video games who got a DS/3DS for AC.

And personally, I'd rather Nintendo didn't remake/re-release any more old games for Switch. My biggest problem with the platform is that it's flooded with recycled old leftovers from previous generations, it needs more NEW games; don't make Mario Galaxy HD, make Mario Galaxy 3.

Well, they proposed ARMS and Astral Chain, no one buy it. They propose a scandalously shitty Pokemon, 6 millions in 3 days.

Capitalism gives what people buy.

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.

The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console worldwide with 656,020 consoles sold for the week ending November 23, according to VGChartz estimates.

The PlayStation 4 was the second best-selling console with sales of 371,272 consoles sold, followed by the Xbox One with 135,915 units, the 3DS with 18,015 units, and the PlayStation Vita with just 21 units.

Black Friday is a week later in 2019 than it was in 2018. In 2019 Black Friday is on November 29 and in 2018 it was on November 23.

Just out of curiosity, does it look like this weeks sales will be posted on Wednesday again?

Nothing in your comment made sense and was really a forced "pokemon shield is ****" comment.

Of course a new fighting mostly motion control franchise will sell less than the biggest video game franchise that has a tv show, game cards, hit game app and touched multiple generations. Same goes for Astral Chain that was announced last minute and is pretty niche looking. It apparently did well enought but it also just came out and nintendo is still advertising it online so it will do good in the long run, maybe word of mouth cause you know, new franchise.

So the fact that these sell less than pokemon isn't due to capitalism but just basic knowledge that people are more tempted to buy something they know and already like than something new and different.

Also, i'm 40 hours in Shield and it's my favorite pokemon game since Black/White 2. It is far better than what we experienced during the 3DS era imo and it is a step in the right direction. Idc if there isn't every pokemon in it, the game brings more new interesting stuff to the table than every 3DS game combined.

Sword/Shield was a new game. So was Smash Ultimate, BOTW, Mario Odyssey, and many other highly successful Switch games. I'd rather have fresh new experiences than recycled old ones is all I'm saying.
