I am fixing it. One moment.



King of the Wild continues dominating the world and carrying the success of the Switch since launch.

Impressive Splatoon 2 numbers!



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Nintendomination at top 10! And look at Splatoon joining the big franchises! Pokemon, MH, DQ,



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Hmm, has someone the most anticipated games list from Famitsu from end of 2016, so that we can compare to the results?

https://gonintendo.com/stories/272477-famitsu-s-most-wanted-top-30-for-december-28-2016-january-11

Pokémon and Splatoon 2 were revealed during 2017, but is interesting that PS4 version was in front of 3ds version of Dragon Quest XI, but 3ds version sold better. Same for Resident Evil 7 that was in front of MH XX, but MH sold better.
BTW, PS4 was the plataform with more games in top 10 of most wanted (7 games, even if you remove Kingdom Heat III from list), but have just 1 in the top 10 of best selling. 



Pretty much what one would expect. Nintendo, Square Enix, Level 5, Capcom, Sony and Bandai Namco take over much of the list, and western games in the vast minority.

Thanks. Dragon Quest was highly anticipated and sold good. So that was predicitve.

Zelda - funny enough - ranked eight on both lists, but in sales it beats Nier Automata and Resident Evil 7 (which by the way was twice in the anticipated list with different writing - together it would lead the list). Especially Resident Evil was much higher anticipated than it sold in the end.

This confirms my hunch, that in the most anticipated games list more 'core gamers' vote that follow strongly gaming news, while games itself are bought also by other people.

Hmm, looking at the list, anticipated was the WiiU-version of zelda, in sales was Switch-version on eight. But it makes sense, Nintendo kept the wraps on NX and we didn't know which games it would get besides rumours. Which is a factor. With that in mind, when was Ultra Sun announced? Probably the first in sales which was known at the time of the votes for most wanted games is Dragon Quest 3DS, followed by Monster Hunter and Dragon Quest PS4.

Wasn't there a report that mentioned that the SWI version of FIFA18 outsold the PS4 version? Don't seem like the case here.



is this list retail only?
