@xMetroid It might even surpass Super Mario Bros. I could see BOTW's final sales exceeding 40 million. (Though by that point, MK8 DX & ACNH will be way above it and SSBU might still be above it).

BOTW shipments for the 1st half of the fiscal year are down 20% continuing that trend it'll probably ship about 3.86m this fiscal year ending up at 26.14m. So even if sales never declined again it would take until after September 2025 to reach 40m and Switch will be long gone by then.

But sales will decline as Switch's sales decline. BOTW sales are closely linked with Switch console sales which is why this is the first year that BOTW is selling less than the previous year (excluding launch obviously). As the Switch has peaked in 2020 so did BOTW's "evergreen" sales peak in 2020 and BOTW will sell progressively less each year from now.

30m is guaranteed, 35m is on the high-end but possible as long as BOTW2 doesn't negatively impact it's sales.

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

The fact that Nintendo has somehow managed to get three fitness games over the 10m mark is really amazing. Things like this well justify their inestments on QoL.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

@Zippy6 To be fair, Switch software sales likely won't go away in 2025, even if a successor launches in 2024. Obviously, it will continue to decline, but software sales could linger for a bit especially if there is backwards compatibility (and I doubt a new Zelda will launch with Switch 2).



Even surpassed the Wii? Awesome!! ^^

No Nintendo product will ever be as legendary or mythical as the secret QOL project they have kept a tight lid on. Wasn't it last revealed to be something to do with improved sleeping? Whatever happened to that?

Edit* - Apparently it was cancelled in 2019 and in 2020 rumored to be built into Switch 2. Could be their next big gimmick push for the new console. Now I'm hyped again, darn it lol.
