Either Smash or Pokemon 2019. And it's worth pointing out that Mario Kart 8 was a WiiU title ported to the Switch, yet it's the best selling. Think about that for a moment.

The best selling game on PS4, XBO & Switch are all late ports of games that released on their predecessor, pretty crazy.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

MK8D will be like GTAV. It will remain in the top 10 for the next four years

Mario Kart Tour could even boost MK8Deluxe even more

I agree. It could have a similar effect as Pokemon Go had for Sun and Moon.

Maybe it could also lead to a new spin off Mario Kart game for the Switch.

I dont want Mariokart 9 because I want Nintendo to give updates and bring new content/features to Mariokart 8 deluxe. 

Will also not happen.

There's no precedent of Nintendo suddenly announcing update or DLC content for a game over a year after its release, which is why people hoping for it with either MK8 or Odyssey are setting themselves up for disappointment.

Edit: also, answer my message

Yeah, most likely will not happen. Though MK8D did get three updates last year, adding labo suport, then Breath of the Wild Link. Hopefully they see the long term success of the game and decide to provide free new content, though I'm not holding my breath.

And about the top 50 games: I'm sorry. I tried my best to make a list, and for the second year in a row I failed at doing so. It's just ridiculously hard to make one. Next year I'm not gonna sign up altogether cause I dont intend to cause further trouble. Once again, my bad.



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.

Nothing is going to pass MK8D. it is 25 to 30 million range game LT.
I see Mario kart '9' on switch only if they decide to go VR, with a switch VR revision and use MK to sell it. Would still the most popular VR game yet, but wont go drop MK8D sales.

Eh, if that's the sort of update you're thinking about, sure I guess they could do those occasionally. It's just very minor stuff.

Don't fret it about the top 50 list. It's a shame you couldn't make one, but you're only causing trouble if you forget to tell me about it beforehand... which, well, is exactly what was going on not a very good attempt at relieving your guilt, I'll try better next time.
