Boy I can't wait for Animal Crossing Switch, it's just such chill game you can sink so much time into.

I imagine it would sell 10 million at least, even more would be phenomenal. What I would also like to see is the series expanding into more fully fledged spin-offs and perhaps other forms of media like a TV show/anime post release.

New Leaf has hit 12+m and if Switch gets it's long rumored more portable version then I don't see why it can't at least match New Leaf's sales.  Sure home console sales of Animal Crossing have always been far less than handheld but once a Switch "Lite" is released then I would expect handheld sales.

K, still sticking with 11m 



Easily over 10M, although it'll probably be without me, one of the few Ninty franchises I'm not interested in with Pikmin and *gasp* F-Zero.

I'm gonna say 10 million units, just to be generous. Interest in Animal Crossing may have slightly died down after Amiibo Festival fucked things up.



I've seen a lot of interest in Animal Crossing lately. If Animal Crossing Switch isn't a barebones experience it will definitely outsell New Leaf.

Do you think Isabelle's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate helped? It worked for Fire Emblem when Marth and Roy were in Melee.



I voted 17m, but that's without knowing anything about the game because Nintendo has not released any concrete information. I expect it to become the bestselling game in the series nonetheless. It has been a long time since the last game, this one is on Switch. Given that Nintendo's overall business strategy has changed to put the reputation of their IPs above all else, they aren't going to make a half-baked sequel.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

There's still E3.

A half baked sequel like City Folk (I loved the game but it didn't really add much) would probably sell 12m+ on the Switch.  It would take something like an Amiibo Festival to warrant terrible sales.  They've had years to work on the next mainline AC so I am expecting at least a New Leaf effort where they actually mixed things up a bit (but still stayed true to originals) and added a decent amount of new things.

Bold prediction.  Like how you stick to your guns.  I'll just be the first to remind you when it passes 12m.  :)
