    Super Mario Bros Wonder Reaches a New Milestone

    Super Mario Bros. Wonder Available Now

    According to a recent article from Gematsu, which translates a new Famitsu magazine, Super Mario Bros Wonder sold over 50,000 copies this week. The updated sales metric means that it has sold over 1 million physical copies in Japan. The metric comes after over a month since the game released on October 20. 

    The story of the game begins when Mario and friends visit the Flower Kingdom and its “benevolent leader,” Prince Florian. However, as they are about to start the festivities, Bowser arrives in his trademark clown car. Using the new wonder flower, he merges with Florian’s castle and takes over the kingdom. It is up to the player to traverse the seven areas of the Flower Kingdom and save its trapped inhabitants from Bowser’s rule.

    Super Mario Bros. Wonder is unique from prior 2D Mario Games. For one, the game includes twelve playable characters. These include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yellow Toad, Blue Toad, Toadette, Yoshi, Red Yoshi, Yellow Yoshi, Light-Blue Yoshi, and Nabbit.

    Nabbit and the Yoshis operate differently from the rest of the cast. For one, they won’t take damage in the conventional sense. They can still fall down pits, but if a Goomba or other enemy touches them, they will be unharmed. On the flip side, they cannot access any power-ups. 

    Lastly, Super Mario Bros Wonder is available now on the Nintendo Switch.
