A milestone, no matter how big or small, is still a milestone and this deserves some applause. Nintendo has truly come back in a big way and I’m happy for them. Also glad to see Xenoblade 2 selling a million copies already.

Super happy to see that Xenoblade 2 surpassed 1 million. It is so deserved. One of my favorite game of all time.

I'm surprised Xenoblade hasn't been adapted into an anime yet, it definitely seems like something that would work as a 26 episode series. Same with the new Zelda game.

As for Mario, I'm happy that Super Mario Odyssey is doing so well, and am surprised it even surpassed Zelda in sales so far (planning on getting that game as well as the Switch itself when I save up some money). It should definitely help their deal with Universal to bring Nintendo-themed lands to their parks. Florida definitely needs one, as that Woody Woodpecker KidZone it's rumored to replace is long outdated.

Zelda's sales are probably split with Wii U while Mario's aren't which is why it's already ahead.

I'm surprised 1 2 Switch sold more than Arms.

I'm trying to remember the last Monolith Soft game that hit over a million copies. Was it Xenosaga Episode 1 back in 2003?

It's considered their second worst selling console behind the Virtual Boy. But I wouldn't consider the Wii U to be bad. Had it not been for the Wii U, we would never have gotten certain games on its Virtual Console, like the first two Earthbound games.

I still think the Wii-U is a fun console & I still enjoy playing with it. Smile
