Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Let's talk about: Switch Nintendo Software

Honestly all the other thread seem to focus on hardware and did they didn't they blah blah. I feel we need talk about the software as well:

This is the best selling 3D Mario game by a million, it will continue to sell and will easily add more millions:

Super Mario Odyssey

13.76 million pcs.

 

and this is the best selling Zelda game, by far.

 

The Legend of Zelda:
Breath of the Wild

11.68 million pcs.

add Smash selling 12 million in one month, and Pokemon Go selling 10 million. We should discuss this achievement.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also just over 3 million away from passing Mario Kart 7, 15.02 million vs 18.11 million, it will easily pass it by the end of the year.

That is a good tidbit, I did not know it was that close.

At this point, MK8:DX is essentially giving Nintendo EPD a free development spot to try and create another new IP.

Also when adding Wii U version, it's at 23.44 million meaning it only needs to sell another 160k to pass Mario Kart DS as the 2nd best selling entry at 23.60 million.

They made Arms...…..yeah, just make MK9.



NS is going to have a top 10 of 10m plus sellers been saying this for a while only the Wii and DS have managed such a feat but NS' software sales will lead to the same outcome, PLG hit 10m despite what people were saying about it plus LT I can see it hitting around 15m and Splatoon 2 at some point this year will hit 10m. Smash Ultimate need to move 3m more to become the top selling installment (S4 has 14.8m units combined) which it will do I think Ultimate could close in on 20m LT, Mario Party could become a 10m seller itself as well with 5m plus moved already.

Upcoming AC and Pokemon Gen 8 will be 10m sellers easily with Gen 8 having to potential to be a 20-25m title with how software is performing on the Switch other potential huge titles are Luigi's Mansion 3 and in future Tomodachi. Switch is the best chance for Metroid to show it can break out of it's niche appeal.

Or stow away a Mario Kart 9 for Switch's successor at launch. I would like a new IP but I'd like it to be sustainable and have staying power. I'm looking at you ARMS...

I'd go for a new IP again honestly, let their young devs strive for another shot before getting into the next MK installement !

Anywoo, it can't be understated how GREAT Switch's software is doing so far !
