The question is more, which Switch game will be the next million seller ? Could Breath of the Wild sell one million before Mario Odyssey ?
How about this, will Splatoon 2 hit 2 million before another game makes it to 1 million? If it keeps 25-50k a week legs, and gets a Holiday bump, it could happen early next year.

Combined or just Switch? it might not make it this year, but I think it has a pretty good shot at 1 million combined in the next year, and at least a fair shot at 1 million Switch solo LTD.
LTD both SKUs combined, both retail and digital, there's no way in hell it doesn't reach 1 million.

I think it's more likely it will reach that number in 2017 than in 2018.

This week's Switch sales data is up on my site:

https://goldmetalsonic.wordpress.com/2017/04/27/nintendo-switch-lifetime-japanese-sales-data-compilation/

And since we're talking BOTW, may as well post the current LTD data:

Media Create:
15./11. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo) {2017.03.03} – 4.904 / 576.067 (-4%)

Famitsu:
14./12. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo) {2017.03.03} – 4.217 / 506.090 (+1%)
21./23. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Download) (Nintendo) {2017.03.03} – 1.841 / 48.754

Dengeki:
15./12. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo) {2017.03.03} – 4,367 / 546,281
I say it has a shot pulling 1m on Switch alone.

Dengeki is in line with Media Create for Switch hardware this week unlike the previous that was with Famitsu.

There goes the theory of adjustments, more likely shipments weren't shared equally among retailers again and trackers had mixed results depending on the sample.

I do wonder if a GOTY edition for BOTW will be made.

Nintendo doesn't really do that (or at least I can't think of a game they've released like that).

Final Fantasy 15 wont reach 1 million at retail ;) (sorry, i just had to hehe, someone claimed months ago that it wouldnt happen. Nothing wrong about that though). I wonder what it will end up selling in the end.

Who cares what Famitsu or Media Create estimate when there are official shipment numbers from Nintendo that include digital sales. Stock is replenished every week and whatever is shipped will be sold, it's not Final Fantasy.

I never said the opposite, I just don't think there's enough demand for Nintendo to ship another 550k, or 400k.

As much as I want that to happen, I just don't see it.

BOTW Switch was at 600k at the end of June.
Those are Nintendo's official shipment numbers, right? I suppose BotW is basically done selling out constantly in Japan so the sold numbers should be a bit lower.

I think it can reach 1M LTD but it will certainly take a couple to a few years EDIT: I mean Switch SKU only. The DLC definitely helps though.

Switch is 600k by the end of June and Wii U at 120k by the end of March. It will ship 100k or more this quarter just on Switch and there are several 10k of missing sales for Wii U. Last Media Create number was 133.024 retail until June 18 and it's not that it's done selling.

I'm pretty sure with digital it's nearly there.

Apparently they don't even manufacture 64GB cards yet.
Hmm. I was not sure if there is any restriction regarding the size of the card. If 32GB is the higher, at least was used for Dragon Quest heroes I + II, makes sense for not having both games at the same card.

I wonder how Nintendo will work on this subject, like how they will handle productions of games that demand more storage space, in cases, higher than the system storage.

Hm, post launch Switch hardware averages about 47k since launch, which is the numbers it was doing before it dropped to the 20s, so it's kind of caught back up to where it was originally headed, hopefully it should start selling above that now.

I'm hoping Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 sells well enough.

They might consider DBZ Fighters., at least I seem to recall it was being considered or something

BoTW LTD for me, is certain to hit 1 million as more and more Switch owner buy the machine. While second hand market may decrease its amount sold, if Ninty release a select title for BoTW, those buying the second hand is going to move to the new one as the price would be close enough.

I would expect a Nintendo Select/Happy Price version, but the game will probably hit 1 million before that happens.

They literally just did with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Also see Animal Crossing Welcome Amiibo if it has to be on the same platform.
Deluxe was on a different platform and Welcome Amiibo was years after the fact (like 4 years iirc)? I'd expect at least a couple of years before any such thing.
