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.

Super Bomberman R hit 1 million.

Once again, Nintendo said last fiscal year, which lasted from April 2017-March 2018. Super Bomberman R launched in March 2017, and had 500k sales by the end of march, before the last fiscal year started.

Bomberman has only done about 500k this last fiscal year.



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.

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.

Basically this.

Every new IP doesn't have to a smash hit to be considered a success and worth making a sequel. Just because ARMS has not sold at the level that Splatoon 2 or even 1 doesn't mean it's not a success. 
By that logic, Metroid is not a success or worth more installments because it doesn't sell at the same level as Zelda; Kirby, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong are not successes or worth more installments because they don't sell at the same level as Mario; Pikmin is not a success or worth more installments because it doesn't sell at the same level as Animal Crossing; And Fire Emblem is not a success or worth more installments because it doesn't sell at the same level as Pokemon. 

All those franchises are successful and important to Nintendo in their own way. They all play their part in an ever-expanding catalogue of 1st Party IPs. And I expect ARMS to be no different.

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.

 

1.52m sold-through as of December!

 

 

1.2m shipped in FY16/17 Q4, so not one run printed game.

 

 

It's not on that list because it's consist of games that are in the top ten sellers and Wii u version didn't sold in 1m in the past fiscal year to be in the supplementary data.

 

 

Wait for presentation by president today at the ir event where Nintendo shares some sold-through data ( not exact in some cases )  and  gives an analytic insight for the company's performance and direction.

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.

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.

The difference here is, Xenoblade is Monolith's main series. That has always been their jam, that's what they are good at.

The only reason Pikmin gets sequels is because that franchise is Shigeru Miyomoto's baby.

I'm not suggesting ARMS was a failure. Infact, I admit that it did quite well for what it was. It probably earned more profit's than Xenoblade 2, as you suggested. However, if you're Nintendo, do you send the Kosuke Yabuki team to.....

a) Make Mariokart 9. A game that is basically guaranteed to sell at least 10 million units on Switch (probably much more than that)

b) sequel to ARMS, something that may not even hit 2 million (first game only sold as well as it did because next to nothing on the switch when the game launched. Now, that advantage will also be gone).

You could put another EPD team on it, sure. But what team? Take the koizumi team off 3D Mario? Take the Aonuma team off Zelda? Take Nogami team off Splatoon? Heck no, to all of these. The only one that would do it is 1,2 Switch/Labo team.

I don't see why they can't do both.
The Splatoon and Animal Crossing franchises are both done by the same team. If they can do it, these guys can too. It's a matter of timing. 



Mario kart 8 DX sells like being Mario kart 9, no reason for a new Mario kart game on switch.
Also you want a super Mario galaxy situation?
Nintendo better save it for switch successor !
Like they should have done with galaxy 2, it would have been more beneficial for the game itself, for the previous galaxy game legs and Wii u!

1) Yes, MK8D is enough. But why settle at enough? MK9 will sell even more Switches.

2) What was wrong about the super mario galaxy situation? We got two GOAT games (instead of one) on a single console, so what's there to complain about? It being on the Wii U would have negatively impacted it's sales, not benefited it.

3) MarioKarts are usually three years apart, so MK9 in 2020, will still allow MK10 on Switch 2 in 2023.  If they cant get MK10 done in time, make MK9-Deluxe. I dont see the problem.

What if MK9 is for Nintendo's still unannounced 3DS successor??

americas out shipping europe and ROTW just shows how weak switch is doing there. hope we get sales through numbers. probably around 15.5 million.

Just get out of here, nobody wants you here shitting up every Nintendo sales thread.

This news is 100% positive yet you found a way to say something stupid yet again.

calm down. everyone knows the shipped numbers are good, and switch is doing great but it can't compete with ps4 and wont ship 20 million unless it improves europe and ROTW sales, americas is basically only US, and canada and those sale for the first quarter are nothing amazing, its obvious nintendo was gonna meet it shiments, sony had like 2.7-4 million sitting on store shelves in the past 2 years and were able to meet there shipments goals and surpass them. i wouldn't  be surprised if there are 2.5 million switch sitting on store shelves WW as of march 31. we should hopefully be getting numbers soon.
