Gen 3-Gen 7 have all sold 15-17 million, that doesnt happen unless it's a beloved series.
Also most Pokemon spinoffs sell well so I dont know what you're talking about there. Take a look at the game database.
As well as Mario Kart?As Mario Tennis Aces(going for 3 million and beyond)?Mario RPGs?So much so that they are all franchises of their own.
There is sell well, and there is sell WELL.But you guys understood what I said.Is it that hard to understand that there is people, and in great quantity, that are not satisfied by Sword and Shield?
My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.
