Nintendo Switch surpasses shipment forcast and is one of the fastest selling consoles of all time.

Nintendo 3DS is continuing to sell well despite its age.

Nintendo 1st party software is selling amazing.

Revenue, profit, mobile, Amiibo are all up YOY.

Not sure if anyone picked up on it earlier in the thread, but Nintendo's 1.16 million shipped figure for Pokken Tournament excludes Japan, as Nintendo didn't publish it there. The Pokemon Company published it directly. The last time the game appeared on Media Create, it was at ~220k physical sales. So add in digital and some error correction, and that game is going to be in the 1.4-1.5 million range for overall shipments.

Oh shit! Thats even more impressive!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Have you realized that Super Mario 3D Land has a huge chance  to outsell super Mario galaxy being on a handheld console with 30m sales less for now than the console that super Mario galaxy was on, which was a home console and home consoles have much higher attach rates?

My takeaways from this:
Congrats to Mario Odyssey for reaching double digits. It will easily be the best selling 3D Mario of all time
I have similar things to say about Breath of the Wild, also rapidly approaching the 10 million mark . Both are exceptional games.

Splatoon is known to be huge in Japan, but it's foreign numbers arent anything to scoff at, all the same.
3.41 million copies outside of Japan alone.

ARMS isnt likely to get a sequel. It did decently, but it's cleat it isnt the smash hit that splatoon was. I feel like it's a one off for the mariokart team. They will go back to developing Mariokart 9.

MarioKart 8-D is already back to selling faster than odyssey. It will overtake odyssey for the throne by the end of the year.

Pokken is at 1.16 million excluding Japan. So it is confirmed to be one of the four third party games to hit the million mark this last fiscal year. marioXrabbids is all but confirmed to hit one million as well. If I had to place to place bets on the two remaining games, it would be skyrim and fifa 18.

Pokemon Ultra-Sun/Moon have shipped 7.5 million. It is tracking ahead of other pokemon games that came late in the consoles life-cycles (Pokemon crystal, emerald, black 2-white 2), IIRC.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Does any else find it kind of sad that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, a port of a game that sold over 8 million copies, still managed to sell over 9 million, more than Breath of the Wild or Splatoon 2?

I'm not exactly angry or anything, but it certainly doesn't help the reputation that Nintendo fans buy anything with Mario on it because I'm sure a substantial number of the 9m are people buying the game a second time.

Was kinda hoping to see Xenoblade pass 1.5m. Wasn't EXPECTING it mind, but would've made me happy to see.

I knew I was going to see Kirby on there.

The full results state that there are 12 million sellers between first and third party games on the Switch. The list here plus the arbitrarily missing 1-2 Switch and ARMS brings us up to 8. Guesses for the remaining 4? I'd probably say Mario + Rabbids, Pokken, Fire Emblem Warriors, and Bomberman.

Yes. Yes I do. I did the math. Only about 29.98 million software sales are third party. Expect tepid responses from third party developers. I personally will follow my own advice, but you don't have to. What I really expect is more of the same: Delayed ports, "gimped versions", extra cost of the game ($70 -> $80 CAD, $60 -> $70 USD, etc.), 30 FPS instead of 60 FPS, etc.

Gezz, Wii games are still going strong. With piracy and everything on Wii too.

Also no Zelda Wii U on this list? One print run of the game then done.

Funny how everyone writes off the posibility of an Arms sequel because it hasn't sold 3 to 5 million.  Xenoblade 1 and X never broke 1mil but 2 was made AND given the biggest marketing push of them all and that's a much more costly series than Arms.  Arms has already outsold the highest selling Pikmin entries and that series is still chugging along.  Nintendo has demonstrated time and time and time again that they are completely comfortable with giving ideas more than one shot if they show potential.  And they are also happy to keep mid tier franchises going.  I would be surprised if Arms doesn't get a follow up.
