Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Would the competitive October 2018 affect the sales of Super Mario Party?

With games like Assassins Creed O, Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, Soulcaliber, and Red Dead competing for sales, does Mario Party have any risk of being Titantfall 2'd?

 

I'll admit I feel that Super Mario Party is insulated a bit by being on an entirely separate system for the games, but I'd appreciate other points of view on this. 



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

No,it will not. Mario Party is the kind of casual title that keeps selling ages after release,even with big competition that month, I think the holiday will do more for the sales.



I feel like it being on the Switch (and Smash Bros coming out at a later date) will improve its chances this holiday season. Release date doesn't really screw up Nintendo titles too much because the game will continue to sell for a long time if it's good. I doubt it will outsell RDR2 or Call of Duty BO4 but it will do well in its own right.

None of those games are on switch. 

It will be fine



Mario Party would be the one title I'm sure wouldnt be "titanfall 2'd" out of those.
Soulcaliber or BFV would probably be the one at highest risk... though I'm sure they will all do fine.

Getting lost in the shuffle is something that is reserved for uninteresting games. All the titles you mentioned could be on Switch and Super Mario Party would still sell well regardless.



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

I think it might actually benefit quite a lot from being the first major Switch game in several months.

Many Switch owners are multi console owners.  The games not being on Switch has nothing to do with the fact that they can impact the sales of a Switch game.

 

OT, I think it will be fine.  Mario Party is a family game, and those who would buy it will likely buy it anyway.  Those who pass would likely pass anyway.  Good local multiplayer games are hard to come by these days, so those that are looking for it will snatch it up regardless of whatever else is out there.

Mario Party is a legs game, it’ll be fine.



I don't think it will sell millions, but it'll do OK



Nothing to see here, move along
