Great that Reggie is aware of it. Now the real question; is Nintendo aware of it?

I came into the thread to say this. Reggie is just a marketing dude, he has nothing to do with development.

But couldn't he give word back to the higher ups and say "This is what they want."?



Around the Network

Looking at the major 10 million plus sellers on 3DS, I think Animal Crossing is a safe-bet next year. Nintendo tended to launch one or two games a year that would either sell more than 10 million or get close to that mark:

2011: 2 – Mario Kart 7 17.04 million, Super Mario 3D Land 11.96 million
2012: 1 – New Super Mario Bros 2 12.61 million
2013: 2 – Animal Crossing: New Leaf 11.69 million*, Pokemon X&Y 16.29 million
2014: 1 – Pokemon OR/AS 14.06 million [Super Smash Bros 4 – 9.2 million]
2015: 0
2016: 1 – Pokemon Sun/Moon 16.1 million
2017: 0 [Pokemon US/UM 7.5 million]
*(2012 in Japan)

2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 all had one or two major hits which landed in the 9 million or more range. 2015 didn't have any, but 2016 had Sun/Moon and 2017 had the Ultra versions, which I suspect Nintendo hoped would sell somewhere around 10 million. Looking at Switch, here's how the probable 10 million sellers club is shaping up so far:
2017: 3 - Super Mario Odyssey 10.41 million, Mario Kart 8 DX 9.2 million, Zelda: BotW 8.48 million [9.98 m with Wii U version]
2018: 2 - Pokemon Let's Go E/P [10-20 million], Super Smash Bros Ultimate [10-15 million]
2019: 2 - Pokemon Gen 8 [15-20 million], [Animal Crossing Switch - 10-12 million]



loot box reggie, the weakest link in Nintendo of America.



 

If only Reggie asked us if we wanted a new F-Zero. He'd get a resounding "Hell yeah!!". :)

1. Do you honestly think he hasn't?
2. Do you honestly think NOA itself doesn't know anyway?


To all:  Seriously guys?  No need to blast Reggie over something he has no control over.
