We had gotten some of this information from Nintendo last month.


I wish they would give us figures instead of embellishing things by using percentages. It means very little, sure the last line says MK8D sales are up 45% on last week.

Ultimate is launching at the same time in the Switch's lifecycle as it did on Wii U. But the Switch has a far higher install base, plus the 3DS version launched before Wii U and sales were divided between both platforms.

Let's see how it performs there long-term or even next week. Anyone and everyone had the game pre-ordered long ago. It'll sell well worldwide no doubt, but I prefer hard numbers to massaged percentages.
