Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Will Mario Maker 2 become a 10+ million seller?

Tagged games:

 

I predict it will sell...

Less than 10 million 22 20.56%
 
Over 10 million 85 79.44%
 
Total:107

I think it is possible, but I am with the crew that says a “professional” Super Mario Bros would sell much more and that 10 million is a big stretch for Maker. Check the 3DS sales - I know Switch is more of a software monster, but 3DS and Wii U Mario Maker sales are just about dead even, not the same for Super Mario Bros. or Mario Kart.

I will add that Nintendo needs to revamp the formula if and when they do a Super Mario Bros. 9. New sMB is stale and smelly like month old bread. New graphics, new soundtrack, new story, new worlds, new level design, new enemies, new power ups. Like we used to get with every Mario game. Like Super Mario 3D games usually get.

It could reach 10 million, but a real 2d Mario adventure would reach 30 million.

Nintendo, give us a real 2d Mario adventure Nintendo.



I still say that if Mario Maker had been a launch game for the WiiU, the console would have sold close to Gamecube numbers. Alas, we will never know.

Anyway, to answer the question, absolutely 10m+.



This seems like a silly question, no offense. Of course a 2d Mario game releasing on a platform that will already be around the 40m mark install base will hit 10m lt. 20m should be the real question.

Agreed, NSMB is unbelievably tired and stale at this point, they need to shelve it for good and make a proper 2D Mario with actual effort put into it, that'd top 20 million with ease.

There are multiple posters in this thread who say it won't make it, as well as (at the time of this posting) over 20% of voters.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

The issue in this comes with when the games launched. The Wii U was never a success so the fact it sold 4 million with about 14 million sold means logically the sequel should do more with about triple the LT Wii U install base by the time MM2 comes out. On top of that the 3DS arguments make no sense to me. It was a watered down port with features excluded on an inferior handheld that while still sold pretty well, came out near the tail end of the system's lifespan.

Given the success of the Switch and the overall craziness that comes with Switch owners buying games, 10 million to me is a 90% guarantee. The only way it won't is if it gets overshadowed by another Switch game within a month, and given the next major release from Nintendo is likely Fire Emblem in July, I think it's safe to say that this game will easily hit the 10 million mark.
