Forums - Sales Discussion - Mario + Rabbids has been played 7.5 million people

The first game was really charming and had a lot of personality. Great music, gameplay and a nice level of difficulty surprisingly. I really wanted more of this crossover and we got more than i wished for. This looks a LOT more ambitious and big than i thought. Afterall, M+R is like one of their best selling games now. So it makes sense. I think their team went from 100 on the first to 300 on this one. It is going to be a pretty major release.

The source says 7.5M PLAYED and that does not mean 7.5M SOLD.

Jesus it's up there with MH Rise.



What a weird thing to announce. Are they ashamed of sales to state such a meaningless claim ?

Someone who own the game, can answer if you can have multiple saves in the same profile?

Talking about myself, I have played Zelda BOTW with 4 different profiles because each profile can have only one save



Whatever it sold, it was obviously good enough for a sequel. Im sure the DK expansion brought in some cash too. Great news.

Good to hear that 7.5 million people have played the game!

I'm pretty sure you're wrong 

Went to Wikipedia, found a link to a gaming bolt article, where it was stated that Ubisoft explicitly said "players", not sales. They were noted this on the talk page of the Wiki article "best selling Switch games".

It didn't actually sell 7.5 million copies. That's what Ubisoft said.

This actually raises more questions than it answers. How does Ubisoft get this number? Because, you know, Mario+Rabbids isn't an online game. it can be played on Switches that never go online at all.

And differs this number so much from actual sales? Because, how many people per household/switch do play it? It isn't your usual party game or something that is shared between the family. These tactics games have usually a smaller fanbase, which means often only one person per household. Overall a strange thing to announce.

10 years greatest game event!

I guess it probably sold more than half of the player number.

This also includes people who played it with used copies.

Good point with the used copies, I didn't think about that, but that might happen.
