Still unable to save Nintendo dropped in sales and falling

Dude, Kirby games always sell over a million units worldwide.
MegaLaplace (8 days ago)
Of course I’m one of the owners of all the top 3 games. Of course I would be. But let’s not lie, BoTW > oddessy (how do you even spell that off memory properly)

1, 2, switch and ARMS suck ass
Jeremy Grigson (11 days ago)
Xenoblade 2, BotW, Mario, Mario Kart and Kirby.
Adrian Powell (11 days ago)
You can't really compare super mario odyssey and zelda breath of the wild. Both Completely different games. Both amazing. Also donkey Kong tropical freeze is ridiculously hard haha
Renrits (12 days ago)
At 0:16 you say that games not made by Nintendo won't be included on this list. Nintendo didn't make Mario Tennis Aces, Camelot did. HAL Laboratory made Kirby Star Allies. The rest of the list is good. I know Mario and Kirby are characters owned by Nintendo, but that doesn't mean every game that features them are. Chibi-Robo and Fire Emblem are both owned by Nintendo, but the games are made by 3rd parties.
Eddy War (12 days ago)
I completely agree that Zelda should be on the top. More people did play Zelda than there were sold, my friend plays on my switch
Tom K9H (12 days ago)
BOTW deserves first spot I completely agree with you. However, the Mario franchise is more appealing to casual gamers so....
Max V (12 days ago)
Mario appeals to a bit wider audience in general. You hardly have to be a gamer to enjoy Mario while Zelda is a bit more built with the core gamers in mind. I think both are great!
Ibrahim Sharrocks (12 days ago)
Damn those Mario Odyssey sales suprised me, I even own the game but didnt expect it to get 11 million sales and beat BOTW, especially since Zelda has had about 7 months extra
Hanaa Hanaa (12 days ago)
Just bcuz they r 10 without labo
Suomiya Bao (12 days ago)
Most of the games are sold a lot of copies, but people also sell them immediately after buying. So, this list is not about the best games.
Gone Chaos (13 days ago)
Watch when super smash comes out and it becomes first on the list!
strk (13 days ago)
so rabbits kingdom battle did kinda poorly maybe?
TekSone (5 days ago)
I own all of them except for 1-2 Switch & Labo.
Zuckerton (14 days ago)
What sort of backwoods savage buys a Switch and NOT Zelda OR Mario? Those should have 100% attachment rates.
The Fortnite Kid (14 days ago)
I thought that fortnite would be number 1

Zelda is the series that gets better reviews, Mario is the series that gets more money. That's a good balance.
DatLegoMann (14 days ago)
Don't kill me but... Super Mario Odyssey is NOT 10/10, especially at launch. Hear me out: It was a broken mess of bugs. Most of the game was stupidly easy, but Dark Side and Darker Side use cheap level design and life-starving. You can pay to get past these unfair levels with Amiibo. The whole game can easily be beaten in under three hours. And some of the best moves are locked behind motion controls.
Jordan (14 days ago)
The reason Kirby and 1-2 switch sell so well is kids, which is gonna be the majority of those sales. Zelda however will not appeal to all children, which mario kart and mario odyssey do
melon scope (15 days ago)
Why are you so happy about games selling. Shouldn’t you just play the games and enjoy them instead of caring about how much money Nintendo makes
Fletcher Ng (14 days ago)
melon scope its because it means more games can be made, and you can see how many people enjoy the games they make
DragonFireFeast (15 days ago)
Botw or mario kart probably would've been first if wii u sales were counted too
Cowntsikin (15 days ago)
Remember, BotW also got released on Wii U (that's where I played it for more than 350 hours) and it has sold more than 1M units already last year on that console. So probably, with the Wii U figures added, maybe it sold more than Super Mario Odyssey already.
James Cornwell (15 days ago)
odyssey is a brand new game only playable on switch, it appeals to me and my 5 year old, why are you butthurt over zelda, it’s a great game, the attach rate of the big 3 and soon to be smash is like 50% that is insane, even splatoon 2 is high. i just want a proper mario maker follow up. kart smash and maker are the important ports. my guess they are holding it for next fall.
Murray Butial (15 days ago)
i have all the 10 games .. my money is worth spending :) thanks nintendo life
will bsp 9 (15 days ago)
I have botw oddysey mk8 splatoon
Daniel Mazahreh (15 days ago)
You say if you haven't played Tropical Freeze, what are you doing with your life? Well, I am waiting until a major price drop. Definitely getting it, Alex. For now, I have other amazing Switch games to play.
N.Dz3 (15 days ago)
Love kirby😍😍
Mr. Dream (15 days ago)
I'm happy ARMS did very well. Right at the 2 million units sold. I really do hope Nintendo decides to go back to ARMS and give it some more updates soon right after they give Mario Kart 8 Deluxe some more updates as well.
ChickenBob (15 days ago)
smash ultimate: 13,4 million sold units
MATcraft Tube (15 days ago)
Finally a good top 10 best selling list video👍💪😂
Jack Son (16 days ago)
Why can't Nintendo fanboys understand this, Nintendo games are Nintendo systems highest sellers!
Mike Norris (16 days ago)
Why can’t Nintendo just make wii sports for switch
Noah Snurr (16 days ago)
I know that Mario Rabbids is over 2 million sold so that’s another really good one
bob no last name (16 days ago)
I hope they make a Mario party on the switch I've only played it on the DS the Mario party ds
ShyGuy (16 days ago)
I own the top 3 games and I am going to buy tropical freeze at some point. Aside from minecraft mario kart and Zelda are my most played games out of about 10-15 games
Steel Wing (16 days ago)
Am I the only one who thinks Odyssey deserves number 1 lol. Zelda should still be a close second but...
Fanofyoutubers Yt (16 days ago)
Hey guys I made up a tip and trick for the jump rope 2.0: when you feel like/know that you will fail, throw your cap to keep you in midair a bit and increases your chances of getting 100 jumps (note:do not throw your cap at the screen as it makes the game harder. Only do it once you get the power moon and want a more challenging experience! Man, this was long XD) Also my channel is coming very soon! I just need to make a draft the start shopping for my new equipment. Man, this is very long XD
EnragedFlame (16 days ago)
I have all of these games except for Aces, because a friend told me it wasn’t worth it
Pitman856 (16 days ago)
I imagine some indies would be top 5 or 3 easily. Sucks that this list is only first party because none of this is really surprising at all
lucas johnson (16 days ago)
Advent Watchog (16 days ago)
Look at all those arms sales Alternatively: look at all those disappointed customers
Is this Loss? (10 days ago)
Advent Watchog mhmmm
Jabberjay Mellark (16 days ago)
I reckon that 1 2 switch has a high selling unit but a just as high return unit as many regret buying it. Also everyone knew what the top four would be.
Erik Quinn (16 days ago)
Breath of the wild is better and mario is stupid in my oppinion
Pedro Pinheiro (16 days ago)
I'm so happy for xenoblade!
skySPYRO (16 days ago)
SAME imo Zelda #1
Drewsefer89 (16 days ago)
If you include the WiiU sales for BOTW then it takes the #1 spot. After all, BOTW is a WiiU game that’s ported to the Switch.
Jeeses99 (16 days ago)
Arms didn't flop
TZRG (16 days ago)
i have mario tennis, splatoon 2 mario karr 8 deluxs and zelda but only on wii u
Arttu Norrman (16 days ago)
I dont own Zelda BOW. It is still 60€ even if it is used... And if Smash bros ultimate comes before christmas it will be top 3 most sold games on switch soon after its release
Arttu Norrman (14 days ago)
Bugsy the Meme Master Well i am not so much of an Zelda fan. And i love smash bros
Bugsy ! (14 days ago)
It is probably better than Smash. Please get it, it’s a masterpiece
Clumpy (16 days ago)
Mario always outsells Zelda. No surprise there.
Xanndovo (16 days ago)
Gah i want to play splatoon 2 but i feel like it’ll die, being a multiplayer game. And i don’t like purchasing multiplayer games anymore
Red Spy (16 days ago)
7:51 Mario fans:What did you SAY!?!??!!
Erik Perez (16 days ago)
I dont care what anyone say the switch is proof that a system doesn't have to be a powerhouse of graphics to be sucessful a great lineup of unique and fun games games is extremely important dont get me wrong i do like the ps4 but i often find myself bored of gritty story driven games i love variety and thats something the switch excells in at least in my eyes
1 0 1 (16 days ago)
This comment section is making me mad for some reason
William Hopkins (16 days ago)
I own all of them...
Jere1570 (16 days ago)
How did Mario Rabbids stack up? I understand it's not a "1st Party" title since it's Ubi but I'm curious to know where it would have slotted in here. It was one of my biggest surprises on the switch to date!
Sebastian Bernal (16 days ago)
The only reason I ordered a switch was because of breath of the wild, I really missed the times where I would wake up before my parents did on weekends to play Ocarina.
Lorfarius (16 days ago)
Thank god his pants stayed on.
Beni Woods (16 days ago)
Own half of them, 1 2 switch doesn't appeal to me; tennis and sports in general lack replayability in my opinion; arms seems kind of fun, might check it out when it is on sale; kirby might be too childish for me; lastly from what I heard, it's only gonna be fun after 20 hours of gameplay as of Xenoblade, no thank you...
Joshieboy Studios (16 days ago)
You should do a 'Top 10 Best Selling Nindie Games' video. The list would be less predictable
Darkstar Dayne (16 days ago)
Breath of the Wild is my switch game of choice. Put in 600 + hours.
Andy1119 (16 days ago)
Really wasn't into Xenoblade chronicles 2.
Odyssey is probably the worst 3D mario game, maybe even just straight up *Mario* game, I have ever played but I am glad most people had fun with it.
B-Rex (16 days ago)
Dude, there have been 20 million Switches sold in total. That means almost half of all Switch users own Breath of the Wild. How is that AT ALL disappointing.
Jack Son (16 days ago)
because in March it had a nearly 100% attach rate worldwide (helped by the fact that in America 3 different versions of the game released, giving it a 100+% attach rate due to collectors/scalpers buying it to collect/resell).
Jem Taylor (16 days ago)
am i the only one watching this that doesn't own a switch
Xtreme 2BP (16 days ago)
SMO and NLK01
doomzelboy (16 days ago)
i'm so happy that 1.4 mill have the pleasure of playing xenoblade
Happymonday 2015 (16 days ago)
I loved Code name STEAM, awesome turn based game, but I don't think we'll be seeing another one in... ever
Cliff Hopkins (16 days ago)
Tropical freeze > Star Allies
Bugsy ! (14 days ago)
Arrusoh (16 days ago)
I love the fact that 1 million is considered a success where as some games 10 million is a failure. Some Developers waste too much money these days
Jack Son (16 days ago)
wait, that can't be right, because 100 million games over 14 million systems is considered a failure (that what fanboys keep saying about Wii U's 14 million rounded, and 100+ million games)...
mathiasmorqubus (16 days ago)
I don’t have one, two Switch, do I have Kirby.
Semedian (17 days ago)
Does anybody wanna friend me on switch? and play somtime?
Tanooki 64 (17 days ago)
I think that Super Mario Odyssey is the better game, but I am a bit biased as it is Mario and I don’t want to argue with the Zelda community either so, don’t attack me on the replies please.
Jack Son (16 days ago)
It was the bigger system seller, that's why there was an Odyssey bundle last December.
T Bartja (17 days ago)
I do like some quality ARMS soundtrack
Martin Levo (17 days ago)
I can't play Splatoon w on my switch, because of my wi-fi.
Gametourny 4ever (17 days ago)
I have Purchased half of the games on this list. I bought Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Super Mario Odyssey for the Switch. I purchased Breath of the Wild for my Wii U on launch day and am glad I did seeing as how there are no copies in site really much now. That version will be worth more plus it runs better in some places than the Switch and Vice versa. I am enjoying it on Wii U. As for Arms, Splatoon 2, and Mario Tennis, and 1 2 Switch; straight Gaaarbage. Haha. I'll pass on that mediocrity.
Splatoon 2 Mario kart 8 deluxe Mario odessy Zelda BOTW ! Those are the games on that list that I own !
Samus Aran (17 days ago)
This just makes me feel ARMS is really getting a rep in Smash U, maybe as dlc.
Danilo Carvalho (17 days ago)
I own the Top 4 games.
errin nirre (17 days ago)
BOTW is far better than Mario Odyssey (and also Kart) even the reason I bought Switch was to play Odyssey and never thought of playing any Zelda game until my friend lended me BOTW and I ended up with many more hours on BOTW. Also the second place should be Splatoon 2.
John Manthorpe (17 days ago)
I own odyssey, but think just about every other game on this list was better
Ana (17 days ago)
Sooooo the reason Zelda won GOTY must’ve been because little kids would prefer odyssey over Zelda but could vote because they’re kids?
Law Thirtyfour (16 days ago)
The game of the year isn't actually the best game that year or the most popular game that year. It's just one of the best that a few people voted for in a small sample of gamers.
Kevin Gomez (17 days ago)
It saddens me Xenoblade 2 is so low on the list. It and Splatoon 2 need to be higher. Get out there Switch owners and buy them!!! You will not regret it! Plus they are adding so much to X2 and still more to come that I'm over 400 hours into it and have not even started play through 2 yet.
TheNerdyWyvern (17 days ago)
Did anybody actually send video evidence of clicking the subscribe button 1 million times?
DDub 64 (17 days ago)
Nintendo lied about 1 2 switch so they can another game similar
PenguinPowers 03 (17 days ago)
I own DKC: TF, ARMS, 1-2 Switch, Splatoon 2, Zelda BOTW, MK8D, and, of course, Odyssey. (As well as Snipperclips, Minecraft, Fortnite, and Marrio+Rabbids.)
OVOXO_Lesley (17 days ago)
One of the biggest games on the switch and I don’t even own it I’m ashamed
Athlon Vega (17 days ago)
Any bet on the sales of Smash and Pokemon this Year ?
Mr Potato (17 days ago)
When kids get a switch just for Minecraft and fortnite, because they think Nintendo first party games are for babies. 🤦‍♂️
