Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Mario Odyssey VS. Other 3D Marios

I've been looking at the lifetime sales of all other 3D Mario games, and compared them to how Mario Odyssey is doing so far.

Super Mario 64: 11.89 million (First)

Super Mario Sunshine: 6.31 million (Seventh)

Super Mario 64 DS: 10.32 million (Fourth)

Super Mario Galaxy: 11.39 million (Second)

Super Mario Galaxy 2: 7.57 million (Sixth)

Super Mario 3D Land: 11.19 million (Third)

Super Mario 3D World: 4.97 million (Eighth)

Super Mario Odyssey: 8.11 million (Fifth, so far)

What position on there do you think Mario Odyssey will be lifetime? Might at least be second or third in the end, if it keeps selling at the rate it has been. :)

UPDATE:

Super Mario Odyssey is now sitting at 9.37 million units, but still fifth place. :(

Mario Odyssey will be the bestselling 3D-Mario ever, for sure.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I appreciate your enthusiasm, but even after all these years, none of them have exceeded the lifetime sales Super Mario 64 had.

None of them came close to Odyssey in the time frame, either.



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Its not enthusiasm, its the truth. Nintendo games have long legs, and Odyssey can sell 4 million this year alone. If not, than it will pass it next year. It will happen happen for sure, the only question is when.

Odyssey will take first by a comfortable margin.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yes, I should've considered that earlier.

Helps that it's essentially bringing back 3D platformers in the 2010s, even more than Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy did.

Particularly, Mario Galaxy was still *behind* Odyssey after its *second* holiday season. These games have legs, and we should expect the same from Odyssey.
