whatttttt! your really under estimating Pikmin 3! Lego City got around 100k FW in US im pretty sure Pikmin a 1st party and the only one release will do better! Also Nintendo hyping up pikmin!

Lego is a pretty big name here in the US gaming market. Pikmin, not so much. As it stands, my prediction is 50% higher than that of the original pikmin's release, and about a third of the release of NSMBU, which I think is fairly reasonable.

Also, 120K in Japan (your prediction) would mean an attach rate of 12% the first week. Pikmin might be popular in Japan, but I doubt it's popular enough to outsell last week's total WiiU software sales 13 times over.

Pikmin 3 will do minumum of 70k in Japan. Anyway Nintendo will be promoting it and with Miyamoto going crazy for this game (hyping it up) we can see it do well and hopefully over 100k FW. Now for US, it should do good! A first party title namely a game that hasn't had a release in almost a decade should do very well. Much more than you predicted for sure! Minumum 90k FW Maximum 200k!

With respect, didn't you massively overestimate the sales of Fire Emblem Awakening because you thought it was much more popular than it actually was? I'm not saying that because you were wrong once, you must be wrong now, but I have a feeling you will be disappointed in this case.


The franchise really isn't THAT popular.

I believe in honesty, civility, generosity, practicality, and impartiality.
