I recall them saying that BOTW needed to sell 2 million copies to break even: https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2016/06/30/zelda-breath-of-the-wild-needs-to-sell-2-million-copies-to-break-even/?sh=2a751ec1615f

And with all it's trouble and years of developpement that's probably the extreme measure for which Nintendo titles are budgeted. 

Well ... maybe Metroid Prime 4 will end up with a similar budget ...

Anywoo, from this barem, it's kinda obvious to me that most Ninty releases don't need to sale much more than +1M to break even in this case.

Yeah considering its team size, complexity, production values, and development time, it wouldn't surprise me if BOTW is the most expensive game they've made to date.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
