Michael Patcher is known for making bold remarks about expected sales and expected performance of any given console, game and whatnot. Now, he has been discussing the future potential of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the Nintendo NX in its context.
According to the industry analyst from Wedbush Securities, who was speaking to the Gamertag Radio recently, the new Legend of Zelda game is absolutely stunning and will not only be a million seller but a ten million seller.
He bases this on the expectation that Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be bought by a majority of Nintendo Wii U owners as well as everyone who buys the Nintendo NX.
I think probably only Wii U owners will buy Zelda [sic], but I think everybody who buys an NX will absolutely buy it, and I think it will sell them 10 million consoles pretty quickly. Zelda looked great. I mean, it really looks like a good game.
Of course everyone is hoping for this to be a launch title with Nintendo’s new console.
Talking of, Patcher has also had something to say about how powerful he thinks the new console will be. He says that he missed the connection with this game before, which is why he now believes that the Nintendo NX is going to be much more powerful than what he originally thought.
Zelda looks amazing. Something I missed… I actually did not realise that Zelda was launching on NX when NX launches. That makes me think NX is much more higher powered than I expected, that NX is an iteration probably closer to PS4 than I thought it would be, and it’s going to have a big title to support it.
Previously, Michael Patcher has predicted that the Nintendo NX is going to cost $299. We are not sure if that or his expectation from Zelda: Breath of the Wild being able to sell 10 million will become true or not, but time will tell.
