it's not insane at all. you are comparing it with brawl, which released over a decade ago, and didn't have mario kart, or pokemon  as competition, and it was insanely hot wii. a better comparison would be 3ds/wiiu sales combined for the

Umm Smash Bros Brawl and Mario Kart Wii released less than 2 months apart vs Mario Kart Deluxe & Smash Bros Ultimate releasing over 1.5 years apart.........also when have these games ever been known to compete against each other? I'll answer that for you, never.

all major  evergreen nintendo  games will compete with each other during the holidays, especially December when parents are buying for there kids.

Nobody who is interested in Smash Bros is going to pass it up simply because a Mario Kart game released 19 months earlier, you are insane if you believe that.

Show me one time a Nintendo game was negatively affected as a direct result of another Nintendo game.

you don't seem to understand my point, its not wrong to assume that if mario kart 8 , and zelda wasn't out already, mario odyssia  would be selling much  better, smash is coming out with most of the major nintendo franchises out, it gonna hurt it a bit. I'm not saying  people that are interested in smash are not gonna buy it, but parents buying switch as gift have many choices of nintendo games.

It is wrong to think that because if Mario Kart & Zelda weren't out than Switch would have sold significantly less than it has so Mario Odyssey would have been affected as well.

Big games in different genres help diversify a library and push hardware sales, these games do not compete with each other, they complement each other.

you make some good points, but i'm just looking at thing based off some of history of the wii, like mario galaxy 2, and zelda skyward has significantly less sales then there predecessors despite then having 5-7x bigger user base. if a mario odyssia and zelda sequels come out, they won't touch there predecessors.

I honestly don’t get this logic. Spider-Man hasn’t gotten in the way of God of War’s sales and I don’t think either will be affected much by RDR2. And a good amount of people here believe the former two games will sell 10+ million. Yet, Nintendo games get in each other’s way...???? 

Smash bros. Ultimate will lead the way for the Switch this holiday along with Pokemon Let’s Go. How would older games suddenly hold them back? I mean, I’ve only heard the opposite true with Donkey Kong Country overshadowing Super Metroid, which came out months earlier in 1994. Same with Mario Galaxy overshadowing Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn and Metroid Prime 3.

By what means? 

Shadow made number #5 in its debut month, while Rise was outside the top 10. Good improvement. According to insider at resetera Super Mario Party did well, and Tomb Raider is four spots above that.



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.

So rdr2 reviews are insane. That definitely further boost its sales.
