Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Final Upadate! [Switch vs Wii] Breath of the Wild vs Twilight Princess Sales Comparison + BotW already over 10m combined

Numbers are looking much higher than I ever predicted. This game could easily be at 10m shipped by the end of it's first full year.

I wouldn't say 10m easily, but 9m~9.5m is definitely a possibility.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Updated with week 40 people!

The gap keep increasing! Will it reach 2m by this year's end?

Love the gif in your signature lol, goes well with almost every of your post :p

And yeah, it's amazing to see Zelda doing huge numbers like that, also knowing the game has been charting on the eshop since it's release.

BotW slaying TP by so much shows also how much more accepted by gamers the Switch is compared to the Wii back in the day imo

But it also shows that BotW transcended what people expect from Zelda. It’s so evolved and different that it’s attracting more people that never cared for the franchise.

To save me from having to do my own research, please what are TP's lifetime figures? TP is the best selling Zelda ever, followed by OOT, right?

It doesn't.

All it shows is that Breath of the Wild does a much better job at meeting the market's expectations for Zelda. In BotW you have freedom from the get-go, in TP you went through a slow start and fetch quests.

If you make a superficial sales analysis like you did (a.k.a. cherry-picking), it can be easily argued that Wii was much more accepted by gamers than Switch, because Wii had million-selling third party games faster (obviously only refering to game types that fall into the category of "accepted by gamers" without a doubt).



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