"Far Cry 5 swept the console charts, but it’s not the only new game that saw success last month. Microsoft and Rare’s co-op pirate simulator Sea of Thieveslaunched on March 20 and earned a No. 2 spot in the best-sellers list despite only rolling out to Xbox One and Windows 10. Its debut came after several closed-beta sessions that drummed up hype. More than a million players set sail on the open ocean within the first two days, crashing its servers at one point with all their plundering and pillaging.

“Sea of Thieves was the second best-selling game of March, and is the eighth best-selling game of 2018 year to date,” said Piscatella. “Sea of Thieves generated the highest launch month sales for any title produced by developer Rare since tracking by The NPD Group began in 1995.”"

Kirby: Star Allies is the highest debut for a Kirby title, beating the previous record holder, Nightmare in Dreamland, by 90%.

Nightmare in Dreamland debuted at 267k which means Star Allies did over 500k.

Heh, heh...looks like we're going to be seeing some new avatars around here. Kirby is definitely taking down Ni No Kuni II.

Woah, that's quite a leap.  So it's safe to say Kirby breezed past that million mark with ease.

90% higher than best kirby debut (kirby dreamland in 2002 did over 260k)

US+Japan are ~1 million when factoring in digital so worldwide could be close to 1.5 million in the first month.

Thats close to lifetime sales of most Kirby titles.

That sounds a bit high. You got a source?



Kirby is over 508k since the 90% increase is Units sold
