Great numbers for sure...
I wonder what will happen when they launch the next mainline Pokemon game for the Switch....

A console Pokemon game that everyone has been wanting since the dawn of Pokemon that is also portable? I don't even want to guess, but it should move at least 20 million units in a year alone.

Glad i didn't post my HW expectations. I would have been waaaay off! :D

Really great to see Odyssey so well out of the gate!



Damn... I was expecting maybe 300k at retail and 50 k in downloads... but this way it might have doubled that. Absolutly stunning performance.



Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

That's a much larger chunk of the Mario pie for Japan than i'd have assumed. SMO's success seems to be much more evenly distributed than either its predecessors or other Switch releases would have lead us to predict.



These numbers are sick.

So happy to see Nintendo back in full force and with all guns blazing.

Super Mario: Odyssey
Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
Splatoon 2

 

I believe we'll see Super Smash Bros and Donkey Kong in 2018.

Pokémon will be the game that'll make me buy a Switch (if I manage to wait that long).

Well, except if Nintendo has grossly underestimated their own sales, it looks like I've lost my bet. Congrats to Slarvax.



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Amazing sales for SMO. Wasn't there someone here who kept saying that the game would have a 500K debut?

What the flamio! And it doesn't include digital sales? So, SMO is the biggest launch for any 3D Mario game ever. And it's mind-boggling how much of a push this has been for hardware, even bigger than on Splatoon 2's launch week (98k I think).

Can't wait for the official Media Create numbers :)

All according to keikaku.

OT: anyone got the highest opening for all Mario games (no spin-offs)?



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.
