That's just a mind boggling number. The delay and timing of the game really propelled it to a legendary launch. I really hope they are putting the same care into making Metroid Prime 4 the success it deserves.

Not like MP4 will ever sell like AC, but with the Switch selling like crazy Nintendo should at least market MP4 lke crazy. One thing I noticed when they first showed the witch was how they advertised it. Not only for the "kiddies" but for everyone, and that's probably a reason for some of those good sales. So MP4 could sell real good if Ninty do their thang. I also hope they advertise Bayo 3 from Heaven to Hell and back since that's another one that would deserve darn good sales after all the "drama"

That's pretty insane. I've ordered it myself, but things take forever to get here in these corona times, and Easter is here so... Perhaps in a week or two I guess.
