So RFA now starts its climb to 3m.



Around the Network

I remember that the question was if pikmin would manage to sell 500k in japan lifetime.
it did, but in less than a semester. i am happy for the wellfare of the franchise.



Pikmin 3 Deluxe will be the bestselling game of the franchise next week.
Currently its still the OG Pikmin at 502k
And that is without digital.

For Momotaro Dentetsu it is not even a competition.
Next bestselling game of the franchise is MD7 on PS1 at only 700k



Animal Crossing is now the 3rd bestselling game ever in retail.
Now ahead of New Super Mario Bros (NDS) at 6.428.457

Only
2. Super Mario Bros (NES) - 6.800.000
1. Pokemon Red/Green/Blue - 7.936.360
are still ahead.


And Animal Crossing is still not even one year on the market lol.

I know its a bit tricky to compare but Pikmin 1 and 2 was realesed on a system where the Userbase was a lot smaller and it seems that is has really flopped in the US and Europe. So the question is, will this be enoufg for a new game in the series? I really love these games but to realese a game with 3 on it, when the last precursor came out in 2004 feels a bit wierd to me.  They should have realesed it as a complication game, called, Pikmin trilogy...

But iam glad it hs some longlivety in cha charts at least in Japan.



Switch to PS5 ratio at 29:1 for this last week.



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