Nintendo has to be happy with Mario Kart 8 and Zelda continuing to chart.

I mean honestly, why would they not chart? There are basically 3 games anyone buying a Switch is going to consider buying. Those two games and Arms. They should continue to do well.

Isnt Tekken the best selling fighting game franchise of all time??

The series has always sold well and this latest iteration had great reviews and was hailed as a return to form for the franchise.

Glad it sold well, fighting games arent going anywhere it seems.

Of course revenue put Crash on bottom.

Well, Forza Horizon 3 charting at 20 after 10(?) months since release. And in the US!
MS/Turn 10/Playground must be somewhat pleased?

Yep, probably MS biggest console exclusive IP at this point. Wonder if MS will purchase them.

Ghost Recon Wildlands is an incredible success for Ubisoft. If they add a battleroyale mode later like some anticipate, it will be nuts.

It is ! Despite what people are saying, it's very casual friendly despite having an incredible high skill ceiling. The best of both worlds.

Tekken 7 killing it is great to see!

Goes to show that day and date releases of major titles on PC can be a benefit. Namco knows what's up.

How much money had FFXV made? I'm shocked it's in the top 10 over the past 12 months but Horizon is not there.

With Japan and US, arms is around 445k.

Guessing it's at least at the 600K sales mark right now. Not bad!

Tekken and Crash in the top 5. The PS1 era is back.

Between this, Media Create, and PAL charts are we able to get a clear idea for how well ARMS is doing? Has it broken a million yet?

It sold 150k in June, without counting digital. With that 256k figure, and european sales we don't know about (but it charted quite well in France), I think it's safe to say it broke 500k in June worldwide. At least around that.

Crash charted with only two days of tracking and the chart is based on revenue. Not bad at all. Arms did good too.

This may come as a shock to some people, but someone could always buy a Switch and then buy only one
or neither
of those two games

Only reason really.

Are you honestly arguing that someone is planning on buying a Switch right now, but has no interest in Zelda or Mario Kart? I mean they are great games. I have them both. It's just pretty common sense that they'll do well as long as Switch is.

FFXV is selling super low priced right now, and pretty much has been $40 and below since mid December. Hell, you can get it for $20 at Best Buy with this current sale, iirc.

Well Morrowind kinda bombed hard. It's apparent when looking through my guilds and the amount of players who left the game. That last balance update did not fare well with many players and it shows.

A partygame. You can't possibly put Arms in the same genre as Tekken or Injustice.

it's easier to put ARMS in the same genre as tekken and injustice than put ARMS in the same genre as mario party and 42 All-Time Classics

Had a feeling it hadn't quite broken a million yet. I think it might be able to by the end of the year but 2 million is starting to look a bit optimistic. We shall see.....

It's a fighting game. You fight people. You punch them. Because it's not 2D doesn't mean it's not a fighting game.

It has good legs in Japan and since it's a service game it will most likely continue to sell well. One million by this fall is a lock. How much more will depends on stocks/eventual bundles/how much Splatoon 2 will steal its spotlight.
