We know from Japanese sales thread that the Wii U version is at least 2m putting the total at 18.3m meaning by the end of June the total should cross 20m at the current rate.

Can you give me a source for that.

Official info I have from Nintendo is 1.65M and that was on December 31st 2018. Unlikely it sold another 400k in a year.

The source was the Japanese charts on this very site and a site I had bookmarked that seems to be gone now although from the numbers I've looked up on the official front we have 1.65m for the end of 2018 so you're right we'll go with that.

Damn I’m wondering if botw2 is coming out in 2020. Still early to say but damn, here is hoping for another 3mil+ year

It did 4,5mil+ last year so isn't 3mil setting the bar a little low?

Regarding the topic I could honestly see it hitting 25 mil on Switch alone when all is said and done. It's momentum has barely slowed since the release year and with how iconic the game has become I don't expect its sales to just grind to a halt when the sequel drops.

I wasn’t looking at the numbers. 3.5mil is a safe bet, depends on hw stock for 2020

I will be surprised if they'll release it 2020 tbh especially if the Mario 35 anniversary claims are true I can see them holding it off until March 2021.
