With at least 1 big holiday title, Nintendo could have easily set records, or at a bare minimum maintained the momentum.
However their holiday lineup consisted of:
- Mario ports collection
- Zelda spinoff
- Mario Kart Toy bundled with an app
- Pikmin port
This translated to sales directly, not even one of them was able to sell a measly 500k. Too bad.

Bets with Conegamer:
Pandora's Tower will have an opening week of less than 37k in Japan. (Won!)
Pandora's Tower will sell less than 100k lifetime in Japan.
Stakes: 1 week of avatar control for each one.
