Forums - Nintendo Discussion - BOLD Prediction: Zelda BotW will do a Whopping 10mil Lifetime! Update 10mil Achieved

If it manages to sell 5 mil before the holidays, sure. I don't know if I've said it before, but I think BotW will be the Switch's GTAV. New hardware owners will purchase BotW with it. The one thing against it is that it has no online, but the DLC should revalitize sales throughout the year.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Zelda sold through 1.8mil First Month in Japan/US for wiiu/switch. Game is doing well everywhere else, so sell through at minimum is another 700k (that is Europe, rest of NoA/World). That would be about 2.5mil+ sold. There are a ton of copies in the wild (pun nintended). So yes i believe we have somewhere between 3.6mil-4.2mil shipped+digital.

 

As of BotW selling faster, i think itll leg out well. Time to tell, it wont do under 6mil. Thats all i kno. Ill go with my prediction of 10mil. If it doesnt itll still be close imo

Where are you getting 1.8 million in Japan?  Media create has it just under 500k through april 16.

I italicized what you didn't notice. If you add Japanese sales (Media Create) and US sales (NPD figures through Nintendo) together, you'll get that 1.8 million figure for March.



 
I WON A BET AGAINST AZUREN! WOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

:3

6 million, its a niche franchise, doubt itll do 10 mil. its too small an IP

Zelda. Niche.



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

Yup.  Misread that.  Thanks for the correction.

6 million is "niche" now.

6 million and niche in the same sentence?  Sure Zelda will sell 10 mil+.

Anything under 8 million is pretty niche nowadays



8 million is lowballing it, surely anything under 15 million sales should be considered niche.



It will definitely hit over 10m. It's kind of "the" game to get when you buy a Switch. I have a feeling most people who buy the Switch for Mario, Splatoon or really anything that sells to them, will also get Zelda. Especially considering the word of mouth and reviews.
