Super Mario Party Crosses 1 Million Copies Sold in U.S.
Super Mario Party has sold more than one million copies in the United States and is the fastest selling game in the series, according to a tweet from Nintendo of America.
The game also had an impressive showing on the October NPD list ranking as the 5th highest selling game of the month, and that was without counting any of the game’s digital sales. Seeing as Super Mario Party was sharing the month with Red Dead Redemption 2, Black Ops IIII and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, this was a strong showing.
This sales milestone also comes after a record-setting thanksgiving weekend for Nintendo. Not only was this the best weekend for Switch sales in its life, the Switch also became the highest selling console from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday in U.S. History.
