Nintendo show that they can still sell a ton load of software without the need of forced bundling and heavy discounts. Smash, MK8, Odyessey and Zelda would be keeping those share holders happy.

Smash is insane, it was obvious it was gonna be a 20+ million seller, its still crazy its almost at Odyssey and above BotW in less than a month though! But Pokemon LG at 10 million is crazy in less than two months. Wow. Looks like that might actually sell normal Pokemon numbers of 17 million or so. I'm guessing mainline Pokemon next year will cut it off though and sell even more at 20+ million. Splatoon 2 will trickle over 10 million and Super Mario Party probably will as well. Very impressive.

Holy shit, Smash Ultimate has nearly passed Brawl, and it wasn't even a month at that point. It really is going to get 15 million+ lifetime.

So Nintendo revised the 20 million down to 17 million will we see the return of that prediction thread.?

15 million for Mario Kart already? Has it already outsold 7 in 2 years?

Not quite. 7 is hovering around 18 million mark or so

Great numbers and in line with what I thought around April.

It said that 7 of the 20 one million sellers are third party games but only mentions Octopath Traveler. I REALLY wanna know what the other 6 are! I'm assuming Crash Bandicoot, DragonBall FighterZ, and Diablo III are most likely candidates.

I know for sure that Stardew Valley, Undertale and possibly Shovel Knight crossed a million.

Mario+Rabbids technically counts as 3rd Party, then there's Minecraft, Skyrim, Crash Bandicoot, FIFA 18, Octopath Traveler, and Super Bomberman R.

Amazing sales. Now imagine a pricecut and/or revision.

Oh and it's now definitive that Pokemon Let's Go is not a flop.

It had Pokemon in the name though. Is it even possible for something with Pokemon in the name to flop?
