Finally some updates.
Some games have remarkable legs.

Question: why is Pókken Tournament DX not getting any updates?

Where are the numbers coming from?

Edit: Nevermind. The new CESA White Papers book have apparently been released.

Over one years delayed but this is awesome to provide insights of what must be the LTD sales of each titles. I bet Three Houses either crossed 4 million or is very close to

DK and Fire emblem will hit 4mil

XC2 could hit 3mil since 2021 seems to be bigger than 2020… at least 2.5’mil+

Disappointed by Astral Chain's legs. It deserves way more.

I was wondering about Captain Toad, didn't even hit 2 million, probably won't get a sequel :(

It’ll hit 2mil+ lifetime

wow! Donkey Kong did really good!


Wow, some of these are really interesting. Especially considering we're missing a year of data. If Octopath is at 1.9M outside Japan I wonder if it's around +3M by now WW. No wonder Square Enix is hitting these HD-2D games hard.

As far as B/C tier 1st party Nintendo titles go, these numbers are impressive. Fire Emblem has gone from barely being alive to selling similarly to some past major 3D Zelda titles. It's also obvious that Nintendo needs to get a new Donkey Kong game out. For a re-release of a Wii U game that's not Mario it is doing really well.

Can't wait for May's report.
