They apparently said 9 third party games sold over a million copies in the last fiscal year without naming them ... I would guess

Minecraft
Witcher 3 (?)
Mortal Kombat 11
Just Dance
Crash Bandicoot Trilogy
Crash Racing (?)
Overwatch (?)

FIFA (?)

Yeah since the Witcher 3 was already at 700 000 back in the end of december 2019 according to CDPR, it could have potentially sold over a million so far

Yeah it doesn't sound like BOTW2 will make it this year judging by their software guidance. Working at home has probably put it behind.

If Bayonetta 3 is ready by holiday it would clean up but we haven't seen anything on it yet.

But seriously software wise I wouldn't immediately think "delays", I would instead think that whatever they have planned simply isn't going to be as big as lasts years line up (Pokemon, Luigi's Mansion, Zelda, Mario Maker 2)

You have Nintendo mega titles (like the ones populating that list), and then you have their B/C list. They can't constantly push out the A list, although they can try and create more of them but its not realistic.

It’s hard to say but in a world without the virus I find it hard to believe that there would be only 140 million software sales as your user base increased by that much

Nintendo's forecast notes significant uncertainties due to the coronavirus that could affect production, distribution and game development. A such, all forecasts are on the conservative side.

The software forecast specifically is more affected because it includes games of Nintendo and third parties alike, so Nintendo has to account for the worldwide effects, not just primarily Japan where most of their own developers are located. In times like this it's difficult enough to provide an accurate forecast for your own capacities, but the total software sales mean that Nintendo has to account for potential delays of third party games that are developed all around the world.



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

yay Super Mario Party and Splatoon 2 finally reached 10mil!!!
FE3H almost at 3mil!
And Animal Crossing just wiped the floor!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Looking at the full list of titles, I think we're guaranteed at least six (6) 20 million sellers. We've already got one of 'em, and we may get another in the next quarter update. 

Mario Kart is a lock for 30 million, it may even do it by the end of December. Not only do I think it can pass Mario Kart Wii's totals, but even the original Super Mario Bros. on the NES (40.24), and become the greatest selling Mario game, period.

Awesome sales!!

But looking at the barren upcoming schedule is disappointing :(

Well that is the result of a global pandemic. Maybe if it happened again the world will be more prepared but no one knows. 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

The switch could use a game made by CliffyB, unreal perhaps?

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

55.77m would mean it's under tracked on VGC especially as the platform was sold out completely in the latter half of April it also means the platform is closer to 60m than expected maybe 58m at this point, BOTW's total with the update is now 19m and for the first time on a platform a mainline Zelda has overtaken a mainline Mario, Splatoon 2 crosses the 10m mark as does SMP, ACNH enters the list of 10m sellers, 4 of the top 5 selling games sold 1m plus in what is normally the slowest period for Nintendo.



Yeah Goose Game could be one of the 3rd party million sellers.

Wonder about Final Fantasy VII maybe?
