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.

 

Funny you said the 1-2 Switch/Labo team. Tsubasa Sakaguchi, the director of Labo, was the director of the original Splatoon.

If they want, the directors and programmers can be flexible and do whatever they feel like doing. And Sakaguchi wanted to go outside of conventional game development.

Oh, the guy who has nothing positive to say about Nintendo! Seriously, why are you doing this? I don't like Sony but you will not see me in this forum in threads about Sony saying only negative things about them.

I like nintendo, they make great games, i'm just talking about sales, switch is doing great, but it won't get be selling near ps4.

You might get surprised soon enough

In fact, saying not near PS4 sales when it did around 15M for the last fiscal year, which is near PS4 sales of the time (2014-2015) is pretty self defeating.

PS4 in 13.5 months sold through 18.5 million, switch in 13 months is probably at 15.5 million sold through.

Just curious, cause I never see you talk about actual games on here just sales lol. And curious as to why you'd buy a Wii U instead of a Switch. Are they hard to come by in South America? I did love the Wii U, but it really pales in comparison...mine has been gathering dust for 1 year.

Its a roller coaster ride easy come, easy go, and i'm very picky, lol.



Kirby sold a whole lot of games really fast. I didn't know the little guy had it in him. Switch in general is doing extremely well. It is hard to ask for a better first full fiscal year than that.

VGC should be pretty much on track here, maybe even slightly undertracked. In this time period, there are generally around 1-1.5 Million unsold consoles on shelves and transit, not 2.3 as you are projecting. Like I said, VGC is trailing by 1.6M, and while that is a bit high for the season, it could still be considered very good tracking.
