Google Trends:

In any case Zelda/Mario for the West and Splatoon splatting the competition in Japan.

Obviously "views + searches =/= sales" still it's interesting to track interest by country/region.



16.01.2017 updated views/google trends and added parental controls for Europe which were all uploaded

- Splatoon 2 is in the top 15 most watched videos in Nintendo Japan channel in less than a week
- Zelda and Mario both pass one million views in Japan.
- Nintendo added Parental Controls videos for Deutchland, France, Spain which also included in the list. UK also added one but it has like 5k views.
- New Trends data with both Japanese + US name of games searched.

Surprised that Mario Odyssey is getting more views than the latest Zelda Trailer. But the latest Zelda trailer has also 5x more comments and discussions than Mario's trailer. Still both have a huge amount of views and just in a weekend!

Mario trailer beating Zelda in the US (and really, a lot of other countries will view these versions) is surprising to me. I guess it's an announce vs. a game that's been shown a lot already.

I completely forgot about this but,

Splatoon sold 1.5million in Japan on a console known as the WiiU as a new IP. (The last game to achieve this in Japan was Wii Play)

Spla2oon is going to be launching on a handheld in Japan. I'm pretty confident in saying that this will most likely sell FAR FAR better in that territory. I'm thinking upwards of 2million.

Mario is a more popular figure, so is it all that shocking?

Funny to see how Splatoon 2 is the most viewed video over in Japan. Really interested to see how it will effect Switch sales when it comes out there.

In terms of being sought out on YouTube, and considering 64 and Sunshine are not his most popular games? A little.

Not happy with the title, "language" instead of "country" would be more fitting, considering enough people don't watch videos in their native language.

I hope that Zelda sells gangbusters. It deserves it. And sends the right signal to Nintendo.

I think it's more because most of Europe naturally went to the US Nintendo channel when searching for the videos.

I know, but the public's interest in it is a clear sign that Bowser and Son needs to be a game.

Not really surprising that Sonic Mania has so many views here. Sonic holds a lot of appeal to the Nintendo crowd.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the 3DS version of Sonic Generations actually sell more than the HD twins? Heard something about that.

It'll be in for a better one if they give it a price drop at the same time.

Yup. If I search for "Breath of the Wild" the US version is my 1st search result and the GER version is my 10th search result. I'm from Germany, bzw.

In regards to Mario vs Zelda. You have to keep in mind that this is the first real trailer for Mario where as Zelda has had a few trailers already. ARMS is also doing well too and I'm glad, that games seems like the biggest surprise from this event.

Also those Sonic views are surprising, but it is Sonic on Nintendo. Just makes sense.
