Super Mario sales historyEdit

Super Mario Bros. Edit

Super Mario Bros. was the best-selling game ever for quite some time, only overridden by Super Mario Bros. 3, then taking back the lead with over 40 million units sold. It has received several remakes, including Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, Super Luigi Bros. (included with NES Remix 2), a remake for the Virtual Console, and Super Mario All-Stars. It is the best-selling game on the NES and arguably the best-selling video game of all time, only being overridden by Tetris, although Tetris has had many adaptions for multiple consoles.

Super Mario Bros. 2Edit

Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels (Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan) sold 2.65 million units for the Famicom Disk System in Japan.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (Super Mario USA in Japan) has sold 10 million copies, making it the 4th best-selling game on the NES.

Super Mario SunshineEdit

Of the six 3D Mario video games, Super Mario Sunshine sold the least at 5.9 million. Nevertheless it was still the third best selling title on the GameCube, only being beaten by Super Smash Bros. Melee, which managed to sell a whopping 7.41 million copies, and Mario Kart: Double Dash, which sold 6.88 million.

According to the NPD, Super Mario Sunshine was the tenth best selling game of 2002 in North America. It is considered a commercial success.

Super Mario 64 DSEdit

Super Mario 64 DS is a remake of Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo 64. Copies of the game were still being shipped in 2015.

New Super Mario Bros.Edit

New Super Mario Bros. is one of the most successful video games of all time. It has sold a whopping 30.72 million copies worldwide. While considered the third best selling title for the Nintendo DS, the other two have multiple versions (Pokémon having 3 and Nintendogs having 5), so it can actually be said that New Super Mario Bros. is the best selling video game for the system.

So far the game has sold 5.2 million copies in Japan. In its first 12 weeks of sell in America, it sold an estimated 20 copies every single minute.

Super Mario GalaxyEdit

Super Mario Galaxy has gained a wide commercial and critical success. As of March 31, 2008, Galaxy has sold 6.1 million copies worldwide (0.93 million in Japan, and 5.17 in other regions), making it the best-selling unbundled Wii game and the third best-selling Nintendo-published game for the Wii. The two games that outsold it, Wii Sports and Wii Play, were bundled with the console or a Wii Remote. According to the NPD Group, since the launch of the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy has become the third best-selling video game in Canada as of April 1, 2008.

New Super Mario Bros. WiiEdit

New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the 3rd best-selling Mario game with 29.32 million, the 2nd being its predecessor, New Super Mario Bros., and the 1st being the original Super Mario Bros.
