When looking at the Nintendo investors site as well as their quarterly report and comparing it to the data released over a year ago this data can be concluded, note that this is just what we get from there, chances are that something like Fire Emblem Fates shipped more units than Wii Sports, we just simply don't know.

1 2 Switch was close to 1 million and Yo-kai Watch was around 800k in Europe, apart from that this is more or less all the data that is available.

This includes bundled sales as well as Nintendo Select titles.

Also little correction, Pokémon ORAS was 1.90m not 190k.

I feel like Nintendo could sell a $50 Wii bundled with New Super Mario Bros. and Wii Sports and it would sell for eternity.

Who would buy Brawl when Smash Wii U is effectively a way better version of it? Would it be because people want to play Project M?

Some of these numbers are just insane. Even their smaller stuff sells 5-6 million, and their big stuff still sells 200k nearly 10 years later. Insanity.

The Wii is cheap, lots of people still have theirs, or are just more interested in that than the Wii U. This is anecdotal but I was in a Fry's once and I saw an old couple looking at a Wii U and a Wii Mini, asking the clerk about it, and then later going through the checkout with the Wii Mini. I can guarantee there are thousands more stories like that regarding the two systems.

I don't know i the NA sales of it were ever made public, but I'm sure it's somewhere around a million, maybe just below.

My friends had been drinking all night and suddenly had the urge to play Smash, Me and another Friend drove (we didn't drink) to 3 different targets and bought a copy of Brawl.

Drunken Smash borthers was pretty fun, although I don't drink and still got owned to wasted friends lol.

Basically they are comparing the increase in the sales of titles the Nintendo list here: https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/fin...are/index.html

Hence while several titles are missing when they pull obviously be above 30,000.

Seriously, anytime anybody starts rolling out the old Nintendo tax and overpriced games bullshit, someone should literally just paste this table as a response. It's basically irrefutable evidence that their policies are completely justifiable in light of the longevity of their sales.

how come Twilight Princess HD isn't there?

also, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe makes complete sense to exist since it's the most powerful IP they have after Pokemon. not even the legendary 2D Mario pulls the numbers MK does on any console or handheld.

seriously, Mario Kart is magical. when was the last time a spinoff overtook the main series at such high levels of sales?

Combining the Wii U and 3DS versions, SSB4 is now actually the best-selling game in the series. I think this is new information.

64: 5.55 million
Melee: 7.41 million
Brawl: 13.21 million
3DS: 8.72 million
Wii U: 5.20 million
Wii U + 3DS: 13.92 million

With the Wii U being discontinued, SSB for Wii U is probably going to settle as the lowest-selling individual release unless 350k Wii U owners who haven't bought it yet run out and grab it.

That's the evergreen strategy. It's a very successful strategy and is sustainable and lasting and keeps things relevant long past original release.

notice how most of the Wii U games that had a prequel on 3DS sold about half of what their 3DS prequels did.

now, imagine what Splatoon could have done on a system that was popular.

it wouldn't surprise me if Splatoon 2 beats Zelda BotW to the 10 million mark.

in fact, i'm calling it now. one year after Splatoon 2 releases, it will be at 10 million WW sales.

It's a port and we don't know what will be the status of MK9. Otherwise, that would be another giant legs monster.

Most popular new IP in Japan (outside of the Wii Sports series) a long time. Since the PS1 era and Gran Turismo, maybe?
