Overview of Pikmin sales:

Pikmin: 1.60 million
Pikmin 2: 1.12 million
Pikmin 3: 1.26 million

MIA: Hey! Pikmin (who cares)

Pikmin 3 actually sold slightly more than Pikmin 2 despite being on a console that sold less than GCN
I actually do wonder how badly Hey! Pikmin bombed

It just sort of released with no fanfare and then quietly disappeared.

That's kind of crazy actually, it makes me realise how well Splatoon did being a new IP. Those numbers mean Splatoon 1 outsold the entire Pikmin series.

Essentially:
  • Zippo said two directs are coming this month; both obvious based on the current speculation (AKA: general direct and Animal Crossing direct).
  • Animal Crossing has an embargo set until February 20th (that huge dump of villager renders wasn't supposed to go up until that date); a Thursday (direct day).
That's it, lol.

So potentially within the next two weeks.

Nice.

Piknin has a lot potential to grow on Switch. The series always had bad console sales going against it so I could see it performing in the 3 to 5 million range on Switch. It could go higher but they really need to redesign the gameplay for that to happen.

Why do people not like Call Of Duty it’s a huge game and Nintendo needs big AAA games if not then the Switch will fail even michael pachter said it

Pikmin 4 will sell at least 3 million on Switch
The old Pikmin games didn't sell well Alright the came out on consoles that are not so very sell as the Switch. But Pikmin is a niche serie. I don't like Pikmin but for next year an new one i am in for Diversity of the line up.

But i want
New Dkc
Donkey kong vs rabbids an whole game not only a dlc.
Mario kart/Diddy Kong racing 2 / Nintendo kart
2D Metroid
Star Fox finally a good one
Arms 2 with more single-player content and a bigger main roster
For the fans Pikmin 4
Mario strikers
Paper Mario
Skyward Sword remake because i don't like the SD graphics.

That's my wishlist.

It would sell 3 million. Pikmin 3 sold 1.26 million on a 13 million install base. That’s better than what Pikmin 1 and 2 did on the GameCube

So the date Zippo gave is probably because he knew about the embargo?

Yeah we’ll see next year. Anyways we don’t need ARMS 2. That’s a casual Wii like title. Us real gamers don’t want it

Have you play that game? Because it is more than an casual title. And i didn't use motion controls in the game but a pro controller. But it was after Zelda my favorite game of the year i liked it more than Horizon Zero dawn and Mario that year . I played it so much online of with a friend. It was so much fun. But the small roster and the lack if single-player content made the game good but not perfect. So when part 2 is coming i will be very happy.
