Just FYI.

The Wonderful 101 released this week.
For Switch and PS4.
You can see how well it did in the top 30..

They should have just made TW101 and TMS#FE free for NSO users or dont bother spending time to put it on Switch. Would have liked to see the same effort used on a different game ported on the Switch. 

Both games should've just been left to rot with the Wii U.



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

I mean its not that bad for Platinum

The hardcore fans already paid for the development of the game via kickstarter.
But really shows how different the real market is to the internet fanboys.

Why? I think W101 fans are glad to see the game on Switch.

  • When looking at the Top 15s without New Horizon, 2019 vs 2020 first half Software totals are extremely close
  • With two weeks left 2020 needs to sale 339K more in order to overtake 2019 even without it's biggest game
  • Ring Fit Adventure could hit 600K by the end of the Quarter if there was enough supply
  • Clubhouse Games will likely end the quarter with 175-200K sales
  • One Piece will lose its spot in the Switch Top15 since Clubhouse, Zelda and Xenoblade will pass it
  • Outside of the Top 15 we actually have a couple of more games with over 100K Sales - Fishing Spirits, NSMBUD, Trials of Mana
  • We are seeing massive growth year over a year
  • New Horizon is going to pass 5M by week 26...

Hefty drops for SW and HW, I wonder what the rainy season will bring.

I can't see Nintendo waiting later than 2023 to replace the Switch.

Sales will be well passed their peak by then and it will be time to move on.

Depends on that what it does, FY21 is looking like it’s peak year, but if NSW really does aim and get 25mil this FY how much of a decline are you expecting for the next 2 FY?

FAMITSU TOP SELLING GAMES JAPAN ALL TIME(physical):

10. Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS) - 5.067.988

11. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Switch) - 4.860.488

12. Monster Hunter Freedom 3 (PSP) - 4.850.000

New Horizon moves up one place on the all-time chart. Next up is New Leaf and Brain Age 2 which should be overtaken by week 27.

I remember saying Animal Crossing on Switch will be hard to beat New Leaf before New Horizon was announced. The fact this is happening in less than 4-5 months of its release is crazy. 

In 3 months when we include digital

Question for everybody before I make a new thread, in your own opinion when do you think a successor will come out? Say year and either holiday or spring.

I’m still shocked most think 2022 and 2023

Last system they had to peak in their fourth fiscal year was the DS.  It launched holiday 2004 and 3DS launched spring 2011, so that is approx. 6.5 years.  I think this move actually cut into the legs of the DS, but they also had to worry about staggering the release of home and handheld systems at the time, so I can see why they did it.  

Now Nintendo is in a similar situation, but this time they don't have to worry about balancing home and handheld resources during a console transition.  So the very earliest would be a holiday 2023 release, but I think holiday 2024 is even more likely.  There is no point in releasing a successor if sales are still fairly high.

You keep predicting that Switch sales will fall off a cliff, but that's not going to happen. Switch has a healthy software pipeline, so once the platform has reached its peak, it will stay on a plateau. At worst, 2023 is going to be first year of notable decline, so waiting until 2024 for a successor won't be a problem for Nintendo.

You have to remember that Europe and the rest of the world trail behind Japan and North America in adoption rate, so by the time the latter two decline, the former two will still have room for growth. That's why global sales will form a plateau.



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

Dang big milestones for Switch coming up. RFA hits 1 million! That thing is just gonna keep selling, they better be coming out with another Ring Fit game this Fall. MK8 two weeks from finally hitting 3 million. AC probably three weeks from hitting 5 million. And Switch sweeps the top 10!

SMM2 and FFVIIR are in a dead heat. Which will hit 1 million first?

I don't think RFA needs a sequel just a year later; the first hasn't even been able to hit its stride due to supply constraints, it'll be an evergreen seller for years to come.



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