MK8D is a beast. Probably no MK9 this gen, but on the positive side we may get it at the launch of their next console.

3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

The legs on Splatoon 2 are really impressive. They are almost the same as Mario and Zelda.

Nope we will get Super Mario Kart 8 Ultra Deluxe and it will sell over 20 million.

DK giving switch a new million seller next week.
Odyssey getting close to 10 millions and MK8 too

Which game will be the third 10 million seller (physical i mean)
Botw ?
Smash ?
Pokemon ?
My bet is on Botw with the holidays and Black Friday.

 

Tough question...For me there is no doubt that SSBU will crush both Pokemons combined. I imagine it selling 4M first week. However I don't think Zelda will have further boost, but its leg are incredibly stable.

So God of War keep hanging around... and Nintendo will be back on the top very soon.

And people were worried about the Switch games. But it still managed to get more than 50% in the top 10.

MK Tour is coming in 2019. Maybe if that becomes popular like Pokemon Go, then perhaps they make an MK game.

I don't think Nintendo needs reassurance of the franchise's success on giving a call for a new game. If all, an full priced MK port selling 10 million units in 1 year and a half should be more than enough.

I do think they will make a new MK for Switch eventually, but not now. Maybe 2020 or 2021.



Software domination for ps4 this week selling roughly double its 2 rivals. How many weeks this year has ps4 not sold the most overall software? Can't be much at all. This is the calm before the storm. Ps4 software numbers despite already dominant are going to get real crazy real soon.
