So yeah, basically, predict what you expect for Bayonetta 3 lifetime on the Switch, and also the first 2 games. The first Bayonetta shipped a total of 1.35 million on 360 and PS3 by the end of March 2010. It also sold over 400,000 units on Steam
We never got concrete sales figure for Bayonetta 2 worldwide, however, we have enought data for know that the game failed to sell 1 million, with only 60,000 units sold in Japan, and 182,000 units sold in USA as for November 2015 at retail.
Personally, i expect Bayonetta 3 to be WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY bigger than Bayonetta 2 free. We saw a lot of Switch games having a huge boost for the series they are from, and honestly, i think Bayonetta will be the next one. Bayonetta in Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS is also a thing for sure, and she will surely back in Smash Switch.
Opinion? I will go with:
- 1.50 million for Bayonetta 3
- 1.00 million for Bayonetta 1 and 2
2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)
