It's quite funny a to see a 10 million seller game as "middleweight" for Switch lol

At this rate any game that sells "only"10M will be a lightweight by 2025



Around the Network

Animal Crossing and Mario Kart, my two favourite Nintendo series now the two god-tier sales titans!



Gamerscore:20,000  -  Trophies:3,800 -  Nintendo Awards: -1

My Xbox Series S is my baby. It grew up into an X.

So Switch is at six 20 million sellers, with Mario Party and Ring Fit both likely to eventually hit it as well, along with BotW2. Presumably a brand new 2D Mario game will come out at some point and should certainly hit that mark as well. Add in the possibility one one of the upcoming Pokemon hitting 20 million, of course possibly both but let's just assume most likely only one of them might hit it. Switch could end up with eleven 20 million sellers!

10 million sellers is becoming the norm for almost every major game. Luigi's Mansion is about to hit 10 (or already has), 3D World will easily hit 10, the upcoming Mario Party will hit 10, Splatoon 3 will hit ten, obviously both upcoming Pokemon will easily hit 10, Minecraft is probably at 10 by now, Monster Hunter Rise will hit 10, hell maybe even Skyward Sword will.



Kart 8 Deluxe about to hit 40 million, damn. Think about telling people from 2014 that it would eventually sell that without pointing out that it would get released on Wii U's successor.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Updated for the September report.

Odyssey seems like it's finally about to fall behind BotW launch aligned.
Meanwhile Super Mario Party is showing some small signs of falling behind BotW as well, it's shocking that it's kept pace with it so far, but will be interesting to see how much it slows after Superstars.
