This should break 10 million by 2018,
giving the 3DS eight such games. Heck,
it's already the biggest 3DS game
worldwide that isn't Mario or Pokemon.
I can't imagine the Switch iteration
being anything less than a system

10.9 million at the end of FY '17,
shipped + digital. Should definitely be
at the low-end of 10 million sold in
retail I would think.

This is the best selling title in Japan
for the 8th generation. Even beating
Maybe I rename "Nintendo's
Big Three" to "Nintendo's Big Four"
