Ladies and gentlemen, Nintendo's plan to bring Pikmin 3 from the Wii U over to the Switch as Pikmin 3 Deluxe has paid off. As of right now, the series' future has never been brighter.

Thanks to Nintendo's most recent financial report, we now know that Pikmin 3 Deluxe managed to move 1.91 million units since launching at the very end of October. As Nintendo's recent sales data only goes up to the end of December, we see that Pikmin 3 Deluxe pulled in those sales in just 2+ months.

In just that short amount of time, Pikmin 3 Deluxe has become the best-selling Pikmin game of all-time. The previous individual record-holder was the original Pikmin on the GameCube. While the Pikmin franchise still has a ways to go to catch up to Nintendo's huge franchises like Mario, Zelda, and Animal Crossing, we're definitely seeing growth in the fanbase.
