Yeah, I know that it'll be on the Wii U, but I figure the sales on the Switch will be higher than the Wii U verison.

I think otherwise. U guys underestimate all those Nintendo fans with Wii u.

Well, we will see with the sales numbers of both consoles.

Even if the Switch sells as much as the Wii U it is still half of what the PS4 has sold so far. 

I'm sorry, but I'm really sure what you mean, in relation to the topic..

I don't know what to think. I'm a WiiU owner and even after I get a Switch, I'm gonna keep my WiiU connected. Hell, the WiiU version is still tempting if it offers that second screen inventory like Twilight Princess and Wind Waker HD.

 

On a different note: Skyward Sword for the Switch. Bank on it.



mZuzek loves Smeags. 😢

I don't think so.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

The same way it overshadowed Zelda at E3?



Both will do very well!



LOL.... yeah... no.

GG has a long, long way to go in terms of writing and gameplay design before people will ever hold their games in the same light as Zelda. Sure, maybe if Horizon is incredible, and Zelda meh, then maybe the next time they launch close to one another, that might maybe be the time Horizon overshadows it.

Not a chance with this one though. Hell, its launching a new console. If anything, Horizon will be forgotten by many a week after it launches, not the other way around. It's Battleborn vs Overwatch all over again. Horizon is Battleborn.

And that's not a bad thing by default. Hell, BB was my most played game in 2016.



No. Zelda has significantly more hype behind it than Horizon, and will most likely be the better received game of the two, both critically and commercially.

By this time next year, Horizon will be largely forgotten, while Breath of the Wild will be revered.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Personally I do not think so.


I do believe that Horizon will do well; well enough hopefully to spawn a trilogy out of.


To trade blows against a storied franchise like Zelda is a mighty tall task for a new IP like Horizon. Add the fact that Breath Of The Wild is a launch title and it will be extremely unlikely that Horizon outsells Breath of The Wild.
