Nintendo has announced that Super Mario Bros. Wonder has surpassed 4.3 million copies sold in two weeks. This makes it the biggest release ever for a Super Mario related title, including all 2D, 3D, and sports titles.
This marks a huge increase in movement for the Super Mario franchise, which is already one of Nintendo’s best-selling series to date. It will be interesting to see how many copies Super Mario Bros. Wonder will sell this holiday season.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder: The Fastest-Selling Mario Title Ever
Nintendo had the following to say about this achievement:
• Super Mario Bros. Wonder, which was released worldwide on October 20, achieved global cumulative sales of 4.3 million units within the first two weeks. This makes it the fastest-selling Super Mario related title.
• Super Mario related titles also tend to sell consistently over a long period of time. We anticipate this title will be an appealing choice for consumers during the upcoming holiday season and will continue to sell next year onwards as well.
• Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the first entirely new entry in the sidescrolling Super Mario series in about 11 years.
• This title provides surprising new 2D Mario experiences, and we believe that this, in conjunction with global excitement from The Super Mario Bros. Movie, resulted in the large sales volume.
The next update for the number of copies Wonder has sold through will come after Q4 ends.
