Mario Tennis is the biggest Nintendo release in almost a year (until Super Mario Party in early October). How is it not expected to push hardware? Did Nintendo give up?
Nintendo had a strategy of releasing a bunch of small-medium tier titles from Jan-Oct this year which seems to have done a good job of keeping steady/consistent sales.
Jan-Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
March-Kirby: Star Allies/Hyrule Warriors DX
April-Labo Variety/Labo Robot
May-DKC: Tropical Freeze
June-Sushi Striker/Mario Tennis Aces
July-Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
Sept-Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna
Oct-Super Mario PartyLast edited by zorg1000 - on 27 June 2018
