Nintendo of Europe has claimed that Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the fastest-selling Mario game in the continent ever and has sold more than any other Mario game in a three-day span.
In a reposted tweet, due to one of the scores being incorrect on the now deleted tweet, Nintendo says that Super Mario Bros. Wonder has swept the continent off its feet, selling more than any other Super Mario game in a three-day post-launch period.
The tweet says "Wowie Zoowie! In its first three days on sale, #SuperMarioBrosWonder has become the fastest-selling Super Mario game ever in Europe. A huge thanks to everyone who helped make this a wonderful launch."
Nintendo didn’t specify how many copies it’s sold of Super Mario Bros. Wonder, but unlike most other companies they do usually reveal that information in their quarterly reports.
According to GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring, if Super Mario Bros. Wonder is selling as well as the Nintendo tweet claims, the game is on course to outsell 2019’s New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, which has sold over 16 million copies globally.
Currently, 2006’s New Super Mario Bros. on the DS has had an impressive 30.8 million sales (technically the original Super Mario Bros. beat it, at 40.2 million, but a lot of that was copies bundled with the console, so that doesn’t really count) - this makes it the best selling Super Mario game ever in the world.
