So you think... Breath of the Wild will be the best selling Zelda ever

Yes.

It was over a third of the way there by the end of its first month, it's showing excellent legs, and it's reception (both critically and word of mouth) has been massively positive.



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

Zelda and Mario will definitely do that imo. Splatoon 2 though will be tough though I'm starting to believe it will do 2m in Japan. Still 8m from EU and US is very tough and I can't imagine it. I'd go with 7-8m but who knows!



I think Odyssey is a safe-bet, judging by the sales of previous 3D Mario titles and the reception the game has received so far. It's actually had far more views online than Breath of the Wild, 23 million for the original Youtube trailer versus 11 million for Breath of the Wild.

Breath of the Wild I'd love to see hit 10 million. Nintendo themselves said in their financial briefing they think this could be the series' biggest seller yet, so that's a good shout.

Splatoon 2 is more difficult to gauge, but I think it'll be closer to 10 million than 5 million, certainly. I also think the Smash Bros analogy is a good one.

Splatoon 2 has a good shot at 5-6 million but nowhere near doubling its predecessor. As good as it is doing in Japan, I'm not seeing the western hype for it (yet).

Splatoon 1 sold over 3 million in the West, and that's on a console hardly anyone owned. Now that Splatoon 2 is on a platform that's actually relevant, it will increase significantly over that.

Splatoon 2, no way. Zelda and Marios, yes, sure, it will get very close to 10 million each.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

Love to see all the Splatoon doubters on this thread... reminds me of a different time.

Well, maybe not, but you're certainly hopeful. I *still* don't take Zelda for granted, and Splatoon 2 isn't guaranteed to attract a much bigger audience than the original. ...but what do I know, I always get sales predictions completely wrong and in this case am taking a conservative route because I'm still unsure the Switch can remain as successful as it's looking like it will, because I've learned to expect the worst when it comes to anything Nintendo.

On the bright side, embracing the worst means there's little to no room for disappointment.

 

We've finally reached summer. Like all the Switch skeptics/haters said, this period is important. We should wait and see what happens from now to the end of the year

Optimistic pessimism. :P

Mario will probably do around 50 million. Splatoon should do around 10m and os should Zelda maybe 30m.
