Future Nintendo Selects candidates?

Ok, for a game to be rereleased as player's choice/nintendo selects, it has to sell really well. But what constitutes "really well"?

Super Paper Mario sold 2.49 million copies worldwide. Animal Crossing: City Folk sold 3.22 million. However, Warioware: Smooth Moves sold only 1.8 million, and Punch-Out!! sold a meager 1.5 in comparison, yet are still Nintendo Selects.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that 1 million copies sold is the bare minimum requirement. However, what about Super Smash Bros. Brawl? It's still $50. Then there are game,s such as Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, which is still $40. Fire Emblem sold an extremely disappointing 53 thousand copies, so I can see why it is not a Nintendo Select title, but why such a steep price?

So, NFF, whata re some games that you feel will eventually be Nintendo Selects and that should already be?

I think Brawl,and New Super Mario Bros Wii are titles that are not but should be. As for the future, I can foresee Kirby's Return to Dreamland making it.

Brawl isn't rereleased because it's still selling well. They would only rerelease games that are slowing down on the sales.
Kirby just came out a week or so ago, so rereleasing that would be pointless, unless they do it when the Wii U is already out or something.

Fire Emblem is probably just has less copies so they charge more

Mhm. Fire Emblem has way less copies shipped than games like Mario/Zelda. They keep the price high because only the fans will buy the games, so they're willing to pay more.
