Mario and Rabbids.
I thought it would barely get to a million worldwide but it's looking like a multi million seller.

My sales dissapointment is Fire Emblem Warriors Which we all know flopped.

The one I was expecting to succeed was ARMS which should be a multi million seller and is almost passed 400k in Japan.

In terms of titles announced, none will pass 2 Million. However, Kirby, Mario Tennis, and DK will sell past 1.5 Million. Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2 is harder to determine.
Then again almost every major title for Switch except Fire Emblem Warriors has exceeded expectations so who knows.
