~3m overtracked in that region.

ExplodingBlock (on 27 April 2014)
@NintendoPie It probably could have but since they discontinued the Wii so probably not
NintendoPie (on 17 March 2014)
I wonder if this'll ever hit 30 Million? What a milestone that would be!

27 million... AGAIN!
Juma009 (on 13 November 2013)
Still making Nintendo money.
Juanky1 (on 29 July 2013)
27 million
atma998 (on 17 July 2013)
Now 26.99M and still in the weekly top 50. I think it could end near 28M LT.
curl-6 (on 12 March 2013)
Outselling its Wii U sequel on a weekly basis now...
Otakumegane (on 19 February 2013)
Looks like it will get to 27 mil.
benji232 (on 01 December 2012)
gratz on 26M ;).
supermariodance (on 30 November 2012)
Finally!! This game broke 26 MILLION!!
Fededx (on 07 July 2012)
You found it hard? I was gonna complain it was on the easy side :S Anyway, awesome game, I'm so glad there's this new tendence to make 2D Mario games as well as 3D Mario games both on consoles and handhelds!
atma998 (on 23 June 2012)
25.54M
Emme (on 14 April 2012)
Can't get a grip, the gameplay is very old school and unforgiving, younger players seem to love it, I prefer other JnRs.Multiplayer can be fun, with the right people.Very difficult game.
spurgeonryan (on 22 March 2012)
When did that banner change? SMEAGS!
Salnax (on 25 February 2012)
10th best selling retail game of all time.
Kai Master (on 10 February 2012)
28-29m sold at the end of this year against 29-30m for the DS version. I hope the Wii version beats the DS version but that's far from evident : it depends if it keeps selling after Wii U release !
Kai Master (on 06 February 2012)
It WILL pass 25m as Nintendo already shipped more than 25m units !
newwil7l (on 08 January 2012)
it only sold 3 million in 2011 down from 10 mllion in 09 and 11 million in 10 hopefully it can atleast sell 2 million this year to pass the 25 m mark
miz1q2w3e (on 07 January 2012)
Wow beat both versions of MW2 after all! :D - - - Mario is the KING!!!
Aj_habfan (on 31 December 2011)
6M is very close? You've lost it man
NintendoPie (on 30 December 2011)
So very close to 30Mil!!!!! You can do it NSMBW! ^_^
cliffhanger (on 23 December 2011)
I think we're ready for a new 2D mario game. WiiU 2D mario launch game please.
NintendoFanDj (on 23 December 2011)
what i only posted that in 4 mario games
PhantomLink (on 23 December 2011)
@NintendoFanDj. Stop posting the same thing in every Mario game that is in the the top 40
atma998 (on 22 December 2011)
@OkeyDokey So what? The game has still outsold one of the biggest franchise of this gen and on both platform combined and in less than one year and a half. Quite an accomplishment if you ask me. I remember two years ago all the people who tought it would be impossible for NSMB Wii to do that...
--OkeyDokey-- (on 21 December 2011)
This game had millions of bundles. CoD won atma. Even with its sales being cut short by sequels. Let it go atma.
NintendoFanDj (on 20 December 2011)
5 days remains to blow sales out
acdcste (on 17 December 2011)
Should be around the 23.5m mark next week.
atma998 (on 16 December 2011)
Well to be honest, we don't really care about PC version here. The battle here on VGC has always been between NSMB Wii and both versions of MW2.
Kai Master (on 16 December 2011)
Yes, that's the biggest issue with VGC, they can't track digital sales... MW2 is at 23.00m this week, excluding digital sales.
pezus (on 16 December 2011)
And PC tracking is not accurate and does not include digital sales. I'd say realistically the PC version is at around 2.5-3m so NSMBWii is still way behind
pezus (on 16 December 2011)
PC version atma...
atma998 (on 15 December 2011)
@Kai Master How are you calculating MW2? If we add X360 (12.61M) and PS3 (9.69M) it makes 22.3M. NSMB Wii already beat both versions combined a couple month ago.
acdcste (on 12 December 2011)
Nearly 23m sales. Very impressive and a great game to boot.
Kai Master (on 10 December 2011)
Finally beatting CoD:MW2 : 22.93 vs 22.92 !
Kai Master (on 07 December 2011)
Then the next challenger would be the Ds version of the game : New Super Mario Bros DS, but it is out of reach for quite a time... NSMB Wii is the third best-selling Wii game this week after the new Zelda and Just Dance 3, that's amazing because it sold the slowing during the whole year that I was affraid it stopped selling, but Christmas and kids are in the place ! ^^
Kai Master (on 07 December 2011)
I hope it passes Nintendogs' 24.27M at year end (it sold 265,965 this week)
Kai Master (on 07 December 2011)
@NintendoPie : it was a data bug due to VGC renewal.
menx64 (on 02 December 2011)
100K this week? wow this is going to sell at least 1.5 mill this holidays, Yay!
NintendoPie (on 30 November 2011)
@Kai Master Where did you see that?
Kai Master (on 30 November 2011)
23,343,862 on Global sales page !
rexar1 (on 21 November 2011)
Stupid game
NintendoFanDj (on 13 November 2011)
Mario Kart Wii is still ahead in total sales but it had a year start though.
Kai Master (on 11 November 2011)
still 9 weeks ahead of Mario Kart Wii... next week it needs to sale 60k (from 40k) to keep pace with Mario Kart Wii's week 104.
Kai Master (on 11 November 2011)
22.26 versus 22.25 : NSMB Wii still above and boosted by holydays sales ! (best week in 8 months since march 5th 2011
Kai Master (on 04 November 2011)
9 weeks ahead of Mario Kart Wii
Kai Master (on 04 November 2011)
gaing +0.03, the game sales seem to feel the holyday boost, maybe Wii Fit will tie it a few weeks (1 to 5 weeks I would say) and then NSMBW will skyrocket in the holydays and retain its crown as the fastest selling single platform game ever !
Kai Master (on 04 November 2011)
22.22 versus 22.21, NSMBW is still above Wii Fit on Week 102 ! ^^
miqdadi (on 29 October 2011)
who said platforming is dead
Kai Master (on 28 October 2011)
rectification, maybe week 102 will be a tie 22.21 vs 22.21 with Wii Fit ganing 0.05/week and NSMB 0.02/week, so week 103 should see Wii Fit take the lead as the fastest selling Wii game to reach 22.25M versus 22.21M... if year end sales are not picking up for NSMB... when is Canadian thanksgiving ?
Kai Master (on 27 October 2011)
next week this game tracks under Wii Fit : 22.21 versus about 22.20 at week 102 ! Mario Kart is not far and Wii Fit Plus is coming ! ... what happened to this game's sales ?!
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 24 October 2011)
for me, is the best 2D Mario game
NintendoFanDj (on 15 October 2011)
Since it is being BUNDLE with SMG1 CD MUSIC! AND Wii that total boost in SALES!
fedfed (on 03 October 2011)
it is fun yes. i hope it could make anothe milion this holiday season.
spurgeonryan (on 01 July 2011)
Once the casuals start buying stuff again this holiday season it will be back in full force, plus Im sure nintendo will bundle it eventually and add it to there gamers hits edition.
slipknotfan (on 26 June 2011)
my wife loves this game
kopstudent89 (on 20 June 2011)
I still play it :P 3rd time for me!
mysticwolf (on 13 June 2011)
it's so fun, but I'm so bad at it, but I can't stop playing!
Salnax (on 10 June 2011)
It's slowing down a bit. 25 million is probably impossible. Still, selling over 21 million games on one console is damn impressive.
Hephaestos (on 04 June 2011)
still selling over 20K a week and holidays are a boost for it... that can't be bad. Should see a boost wth the new wii price
spurgeonryan (on 20 May 2011)
SAdly it took 6 different formats for Black ops to accomplish that feat. On two systems though Mario (basically the same format) has sold on its way to 50 million.
cromeros (on 16 May 2011)
Black Ops.. SURE!!!... Mario Rules!!!
TheConduit (on 07 May 2011)
I wonder which cost more to develop this or Black Ops
Salnax (on 04 May 2011)
@pizzahut And Angry Birds crushed Black Ops. That's as fair as your comparison.
pokeclaudel (on 01 May 2011)
wow one of every four wii owners own this game. That's an amazing attach rate.
Solid-Stark (on 06 April 2011)
Nice! Shows Mario Bros will never die!
Fededx (on 27 March 2011)
Unbelievable... Only Mario and Luigi can sell like this! :) Go Mario Brothers go!
Kai Master (on 13 March 2011)
slowing down a lot (a bit weird), but hopefully this kind of game sells a lot on christmas, it should beat Black Ops in the end, as Mario's are selling better in the holydays and there's a Call of every year.
newwil7l (on 13 March 2011)
why is it slowing so much
Pavolink (on 03 February 2011)
Americas > Japan@EMEAA combined
CrankyStroming (on 29 January 2011)
So what's going to sell the most LT? This or MK? My bettings on Kart since it's more competitive, therefore an easier sell to the kind of people who tend to buy multiplayer Wii games.
mai (on 28 January 2011)
21.22M after 62 weeks of sales and it finally beats COD:MW2 on X360 and PS3 combined, which is at 21.18M mark.
newwil7l (on 24 January 2011)
At first thought it was boring but once i got to the snow level i couldnt stop playin i like that they brought back the boo house
guiduc (on 23 January 2011)
omg I began to replay the game again... Didn't know it was THAT much fun. Go Mario!
Aidman (on 20 January 2011)
NSMBWii keeps its TEN FIRST WEEK S Sales even Black Ops can't beat it. Mario saves Peach forever
atma998 (on 17 January 2011)
Outsold both versions of COD: Modern Warfare 2 just like I predicted 1 year ago.
gunslinger (on 15 January 2011)
I love that the Koopa Kids were in this game. I just keep replaying the castle levels over and over again just to beat the kids. Nintendo doesn't utilize them NEARLY enough. They are much better than Bowser Jr. Ugh.
Red4ADevil (on 13 January 2011)
Another 20 million seller I can picture mario swimming in moola right now
Kai Master (on 08 January 2011)
according to sales pace and inacuracy of VGC data we can say NSMBW reached 21M in 58 weeks and not 59 as the week 59 sales would mean it reach 21M in 58 weeks of data + 1 day !
Aidman (on 07 January 2011)
New SMB Wii New Million Wii !
Aidman (on 07 January 2011)
New SMB Wii New Million Wii !
gumby_trucker (on 04 January 2011)
this game is a monster! just sold through another million in the blink of an eye!
Aidman (on 03 January 2011)
NSMB Wii is another tezzeevvv
atma998 (on 03 January 2011)
@Kai Master Exactly as I predicted. Last year there was a lot of people that thought NSMB Wii won't ever outsells MW2 LTD.
Kai Master (on 03 January 2011)
First game = MW2 I meant
Kai Master (on 03 January 2011)
First game = MW2 I meant
Kai Master (on 03 January 2011)
First game to reach 21M so fast (59 weeks), NSMBWii is at 20.91M in 58 weeks versus 20.94M in 58 weeks for MW2 on 360+PS3... but next week NSMBWii will beat MW2 : it will reach 21M also in 59 weeks but in a few days less than for MW2... but in a few weeks BOps will burst the record in 8 weeks to reach 20M against 43 weeks for MW2 !
kopstudent89 (on 03 January 2011)
America is eating this up :D
Buzzi (on 01 January 2011)
Now I'm pretty sure NSMBW will reach 30m, 1m in one week after a year is an incredible achievement, even if because of bundles. Unfortunately it took longer than 1 year I predicted initially, but still fastest game to do so!
Aidman (on 31 December 2010)
congractulations 20 Millions
DrZoidberg (on 30 December 2010)
and that's 20 million!
Galvanizer (on 30 December 2010)
Holy fucking shit @ these sales! It's almost sold 20 million worldwide? That's more than some entire video games series. Mario is so darn popular in 2D. Good for him. :-)
Aidman (on 27 December 2010)
Super Mario = Gameplay = GameExperience = GameIndustry = GameAddiction = GamePhilosophy = GAME.
Juma009 (on 26 December 2010)
My favorite game this generation.
Wickedshyn (on 24 December 2010)
Just got this game for xmas woot.
Cheebee (on 24 December 2010)
Mario = insanity
SaviorX (on 23 December 2010)
19.92....best number, best year ever.
cliffhanger (on 23 December 2010)
Wii adds another 20m seller next week.
morenoingrato (on 22 December 2010)
@Faxandu: Actually, EMEAA hates the game :-(
morenoingrato (on 22 December 2010)
@Faxandu: Actually, EMEAA hates the game :-(
Faxanadu (on 22 December 2010)
Why so low sales compared to DKCR, Mario Kart Wii and WiiFit+ in EMEAA? Supply issues?
DrZoidberg (on 21 December 2010)
will get very close to 20 million this week, i'm rooting for this to hit 30 million, it deserves it- great game!
GianCarmen (on 21 December 2010)
Its amazing how well it is still selling over a year later.
morenoingrato (on 18 December 2010)
It'll reach 20 million 4 weeks before Wii Fit, can it hit 30 million ltd?
miz1q2w3e (on 18 December 2010)
@Nintendogamer: was there any doubt :p - - - -also, YAAY!! :D - - totally deserved imo!!
Nintendogamer (on 17 December 2010)
Fastest game to 20M!
pacman91 (on 17 December 2010)
Hmm, will this get to 20 mil before brawl gets to 10 mil?
Iveyboi (on 17 December 2010)
THis is true. As well being arguably the most popular and recognizable videogame series in history will also help. Nintendo does know how to meet their customer demands well
SlyFoxDeveraux (on 15 December 2010)
@ Iveyboi, because Super Mario Bros. Wii is one of the few games that's going to appeal to just about everybody. And this is one of them. Sure, maybe it's not as good as a game like Metroid Prime Trilogy, but games like that are more niche.
Aidman (on 15 December 2010)
Bezef !
Iveyboi (on 14 December 2010)
Wii owners still baffle my mind in terms of purchase decisions. Why does this game get so much support when it is not more special than many Wii titles out there
Beuli2 (on 13 December 2010)
It is going to over 10 million in it's second year!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 13 December 2010)
@ MightyGeorge MW2 bundling was nowhere near on the scale of this...
MightyGeorge (on 12 December 2010)
And it'll top Modern Warfare 2. Any complains about bundles are irrelevant. After all, Modern Warfare 2 was also bundled when it was released for a limited time. Same case here.
Fededx (on 10 December 2010)
Way to go Mario and Luigi!
Salnax (on 08 December 2010)
Did this game just pass SMB3? In about one year? I thought the Wii was domed!
luiaots (on 04 December 2010)
I bet nintendo is kicking themselves for not having thought about this game earlier. It will sell more its second year than most games will lifetime.
marcianito (on 04 December 2010)
20 million by the end of the year
Beuli2 (on 04 December 2010)
Nomnonmonmnom... NSMB Wii keeps eating the chart...next week it'll top 18 million and after two weeks more 19 million...
Faxanadu (on 03 December 2010)
@primogen: way to compare a single region launch with WW sales for NSMBWii. Well done.
Faxanadu (on 03 December 2010)
Not even a million this week? Disappointed.
Agente42 (on 03 December 2010)
22M in end of year? no doubt
primogen18 (on 03 December 2010)
Not even DK could trump this beast on Black Friday!
menx64 (on 03 December 2010)
500k week 54??? Just amazing!
Games4Fun (on 03 December 2010)
2D Mario is a beast!
morenoingrato (on 02 December 2010)
With this week's numbers, it actually has a shot at becoming the fastest selling to 20mil
Nintendogamer (on 02 December 2010)
Should be at 18.10M+ end of year.
Pavolink (on 27 November 2010)
Almost 17mill!
Metallicube (on 27 November 2010)
Wonder what the ceiling for this game is, considering the equally popular Mario Kart is still going at 23 million with no signs of stopping. 25 million? 30?
Kai Master (on 27 November 2010)
2D sales always beat 3D sales ^^ Who would have bet ?
Nintendogamer (on 24 November 2010)
I think it could do 23M+ LT, Will top Super mario bros 3 in about 3 weeks.
kopstudent89 (on 23 November 2010)
Fast forward a year, and who would've predicted it would sell 16 ml and on its way to 20 mil by the end of the holdiays (I'll give the credit to puffy who predicted 22 million LTD)?? In-fuckin-credible!
Nintendogamer (on 19 November 2010)
We meant NSMBWii to top the 360 version alone in USA :P
Cheebee (on 19 November 2010)
Lol whut? Top MW2? Thsat'll happen eventually, but not for a while, as that sold well over 20 million combined. :-P
Nintendogamer (on 18 November 2010)
Can this game top MW2 next week?
SmokedHostage (on 16 November 2010)
You best be joking Faxanadu and tehsage.
tehsage (on 16 November 2010)
Worst. Game. Ever.
Faxanadu (on 16 November 2010)
Disappointing sales
alexf10 (on 14 November 2010)
now with the bundle this game will go way over 20m
Kai Master (on 12 November 2010)
I blame UK and EMEEA overall, but the holyday sales are getting huge, ranking 8th this week ! That's gona be a big chrismas for NSMB ! 20M+ is more than ever reachable !
RageBot (on 10 November 2010)
Well I blame Wii Fit!
Buzzi (on 07 November 2010)
So it wasn't able to sell 20m in a year. I blame EMEEA for this!
Conegamer (on 05 November 2010)
When/will it reach 20mil by March 31st? I think so!
guiduc (on 01 November 2010)
And Holiday is gonna help the game... I just hope Nintendo gives a 2D Mario game each generation, NSMBW is so my favorite 2D Mario game!
morenoingrato (on 28 October 2010)
sadly, this game just doesn't have a future in EMEAA
adsl (on 23 October 2010)
17 millions by the end of the year?
Beuli2 (on 22 October 2010)
It's over 16 millions!
Khuutra (on 21 October 2010)
This game is going to be one of the holiday's biggest performers - just call it a hunch.
IxisNaugus (on 21 October 2010)
The holiday's will help this game out a bit.
Faxanadu (on 21 October 2010)
Still not above GTA San Andreas - very disappointed in this games performance
ioi (on 20 October 2010)
Gonna pass 16 million this week then...
NolSinkler (on 29 May 2010)
I'm kind of sad that this has fared much better than Super Mario Galaxy; not to say that this is a bad game, as it is actually very good, but I thought SMG was better. I hope SMG2 sells more than the first one.
Khuutra (on 27 May 2010)
Clawing its way toward 4 million in Japan. Stunning.
wiifan75 (on 21 May 2010)
This game is absolutely addictive. I couldn't quit playing tonight. I'm glad I picked this up finally. Amazon had it for under $40 so I thought I'd finally give it a try. Glad I did. Just freaking FUN!
Cheebee (on 19 May 2010)
In... Insane!
Kyuubi Ricky SSJ2 (on 18 May 2010)
This game is at 14.7 according to Nintendo: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/library/events/100507/03.html
andremop (on 14 May 2010)
Passed Vice city! Next: Pokemon Yellow... 3 weeks from now. It's passing lots of legendary games on its way to the top 20!
fukudalakasone (on 14 May 2010)
I anticipate 18m sold by 2010. Will fall agonisingly short to surpassing GTA: SA in 2010. Will surpass it in January 2011 (Assuming weekly sales of 150k per week here on in)...
andremop (on 10 May 2010)
It's highly possible 19-20 million in one year... high possible yet highly insane!
vonboysp (on 10 May 2010)
thanks to the impending adfjustmentr, i'm standing by my bet that this game will sell 20 million copies in it's 1st year of release.
Salnax (on 09 May 2010)
So, how long until it outsells Super Mario Bros 3? We all know its going to happen.

I'm guessing sometime in October.
SaviorX (on 09 May 2010)
The scary part is, it is actually Undertracked.

Nintendo had 14.7m shipped by the end of March 2010, and we have it at 14.12 right now as of May 1st.

Unless over 600,000 copies are sitting on shelves, it is time for this bad boy to get an adjustment upwards lol
AnthonyW86 (on 08 May 2010)
Wow it's actually outselling sports resort, and that game is more bundled. Never expected that.
andremop (on 08 May 2010)
24 weeks and selling 158,000.

Lol, the best selling game of this year is going to be a game from last year.
Only mario.
mpereira (on 06 May 2010)
NanakiXl I honestly disagree with you =)
zgamer5 (on 06 May 2010)
this game still sells 100k each week.
KillerJawz (on 05 May 2010)
Damn 14 million... that came around very quickly o.o
Ninpanda (on 05 May 2010)
14 million?
My God... We've created a monster!
NanakiXI (on 05 May 2010)
This game is ridicules!!!
SmokedHostage (on 01 May 2010)
Ever closer to 14 million.
Nintendogamer (on 30 April 2010)
14M peeps!
Beuli2 (on 27 April 2010)
Only one more week to 14 million :D
famousringo (on 27 April 2010)
How does this game manage to make failure so fun?
Nintendogamer (on 27 April 2010)
Well bundles could boost this games sales.
fukudalakasone (on 27 April 2010)
*** Fingers crossed no official bundles are announced by Nintendo to invalidate the sales achievements of this game! ***
IxisNaugus (on 24 April 2010)
@ ChrisIsNotSexy

Yep he definitely missed the "2" key and accidentally hit "1". Common mistake ;)
ChrisIsNotSexy (on 24 April 2010)
@Paul
U mean 25 Mil?
Paul (on 23 April 2010)
I think it has a shot at 15 million.
oni-link (on 22 April 2010)
What's crazy is that it still has 6 months to go before it hits one year!!!
Beuli2 (on 20 April 2010)
Finished this awesome game alone, now I will try it Multiplayer, if possible.
Killergran (on 17 April 2010)
Now it seems to have stabilized somewhat. Could reach 20 million before the end of the year, at this pace. If it does, 30 million is in the bag.
Khuutra (on 16 April 2010)
This game's legs in Japan border on the supernatural.

best game right here
guiduc (on 07 April 2010)
I'm so happy this game is an evergreen title. It's raelly a great Mario game, my favorite so far. What is so cool is that they are going to do even better with multiplayer next time!
-PaNdOrA- (on 07 April 2010)

Nintendogamer (on 02 April 2010)
At least 20M before 2011.
dampowell (on 02 April 2010)
THis game will increase meaningfully as other Core releases come along.
Beuli2 (on 02 April 2010)
Amazing, it went up in all regions this week. Either this shows that the game sales are stabilizing or some unknown force has driven it's sales, but it seems unlikely that something happened worldwide. Maybe April's 1st Holyday?:P
nordlead (on 29 March 2010)
13m already, and still selling over 150k/week. At this rate (which will likely continue to drop) it should be at 15m before July.
Siko1989 (on 29 March 2010)
20 million by the end of the year
Frozen (on 25 March 2010)
this game will be in top 5 best sellers of 2010

this game isn't that huge in others, but wow america & japan
Cheebee (on 24 March 2010)
What?! Nearly 13 million already? Gosh.
mortono (on 22 March 2010)
Prediction: It will pass Mario Kart Wii by next Christmas.
Buzzi (on 20 March 2010)
What is important is the fact that this is selling without an addon-on (Wii wheel) which (in most people's mind) is the main reason why Wii Fit, Mario Kart o Wii Sports are selling (I think that's not completely true)...this game is selling great, probably will fall under Mario Kart's sales in the graphic, but still will sell great through the whole year and this week Other's sales mean that it's right now the main system seller, so no problem for 20m.
Demotruk (on 19 March 2010)
Didn't notice your reply until now Killergran.

It's sold more every single week than Mario Kart Wii. MKWii had a similar fast drop off, it just happened a lot faster than with NSMB. So while NSMB is dropping now it's still to reach the point where MKWii levelled off in it's first year.
OmegaRugalv3 (on 19 March 2010)
Over 20 million is a lock ... over 30 million ... damn ... that is asking for a lot right now.
Khuutra (on 17 March 2010)
@Killergran:

Weird as it seems, this may end up being a holiday-centric title. I think we need to wait until at least January of 2011 before we try to make any final predictions.
guiduc (on 17 March 2010)
Oh oh oh Buzzi!

It had a little boost in Others this week!
Signalstar (on 17 March 2010)
Amazing sales
Nintendogamer (on 17 March 2010)
It could at least hit 25 Million.
Buzzi (on 16 March 2010)
@Killergran
Considering the game is at 12.69m, to arrive at 30m in the next two years it will need around an average 160k per week, and even if we consider the holiday boost, still it won't be easy, especially during the summer. I think it's more likely it reaches 20m before 2010 ends than 30m LTD, but we'll see, a bundle could change all of this. Others is ruining very much this game, it will soon be the best selling Wii game in Japan, and in Americas it has crazy legs, while in others is selling poorly compared to the other two countries.
Killergran (on 15 March 2010)
Actually Demotruk, NSMBWii is showing a tendency to have much weaker legs than Wii Fit, especially in Others. Due to the incredibly strong opening, I thought that it would leg it out and sell around over 200k most weeks this year.

But it's still falling and even if it doesn't fall down under 100k per month it will still be less than I had anticipated. 30 million might be out of reach for this title, unless it stops dropping as quickly.
Demotruk (on 14 March 2010)
I assume you're being ironic Killergran. Look at how it's tracking versus Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii. It's selling more than they were at this point in it's lifetime, it had a much much bigger first holiday and first few weeks, and look where they ended up.
Killergran (on 14 March 2010)
This game does not have the legs I thought it would. It will still sell 20 million, but 30 might be out of reach.
Metallicube (on 12 March 2010)
Good to see my two favorite Wii games, this and Mario Kart still lighting up the charts :)

of course sound of rain but it's still my favorite 2D Mario because of 4 players, epic final boss, Koopalings, Yoshi and incredible level design.

@mai
This hapenned with me on NSMB DS, the first time i found the game boring and easy, on the 2nd it was mindblowing.
I already finish the game more than 10 times.
Sadly i don't have the Wii version yet.
D.V.N.E (on 25 February 2010)
This games addictive
mai (on 24 February 2010)
On second thoughts, I like it more now, but I'm still duying too much. Where're my skills?
guiduc (on 23 February 2010)
New Super Mario Bros Wii is a terrific stronghold that resists to attacks coming from Bioshock, Mass Effect, Heavy Rain and God of War

ME2 is almost out of charts while NSMBW is still nearly at the top, Bioshock will see the same drop, Heavy Rain is not so great in sales, only GOW3 and Final Fantasy will hurt a little.
Ghazi4 (on 22 February 2010)
12 million next week

Didn't like it, maybe 'cos I suck at it, frustrating experience.

@ash3336
Don't worry, you don't have to add "IMHO" into every possible place. Your opinion is shared by many, including me. While this game definitely doesn't deserve less sales, SMG deserves much more. But however, quality doesn't always guarantee great sales. (Just look at Madworld, Muramasa, Little King's Story and many other great 3rd party Wii games...)
ash3336 (on 20 February 2010)
The reason you got bored of this faster because it really does not bring anything groundbreaking to you. Galaxy was groundbreaking, there was nothing like it before and fascinated people when they played. IMHO, Galaxy deserves better sales than this. Not saying this is a bad game, but just that Galaxy is better. IMHO.
TheSource (on 19 February 2010)
Faster than a speeding bullet...more powerful than a Locomotive...

KingHenry (on 18 February 2010)
I recently picked this one up, and I haven't played it till today. I played with with my girlfriend and brothers, and it's pretty fun. Definitely one of the better Wii games.
Games4Fun (on 14 February 2010)
While I do not find it to be as good as I thought it would be, it was well worth the 50bucks.
DOLBYdigital (on 13 February 2010)
While I won't buy the game, I finally played it last night with 2 other friends and will admit it was very very fun. Now I see why its selling so much ;)
Styster (on 13 February 2010)
WHEN is this game gonna start SELLING? :(
bmmb1 (on 12 February 2010)
If one is to believe NPD it is STILL undertracked :-) VGC estimate for US for January was 558K, NPD is 656K.
guiduc (on 09 February 2010)
Yeah we got through holidays so I felt the game fell dramaticaly but looking at the charts, it's still really high.
Soma (on 08 February 2010)
I finally played it multiplayer, just with another friend, and it was great! Really fun!
Beuli2 (on 08 February 2010)
Yeah guiduc, despite that every other game sales are down.
mortono (on 08 February 2010)
@ guiduc

I don't know why you say it doesn't have the legs of Sports Resort. At 10 weeks it looks like it's tracking nearly the same.

If it stays above 200k a week, it should reach 20m at week 45. That's half the time it took Mario Kart to reach 20m.
Thechalkblock (on 08 February 2010)
At first I neglected this game. Now I think it's one of the best games for Wii.
guiduc (on 07 February 2010)
@lonely_gamer

I really don't know. It has nothing of the legs Sports Resort has. Fell drastically week 10.

Wii needs a big game like Galaxy 2 now. Bioshock 2, Mass Effect 2... Heavy Rain, God of War III coming... they should release something or Wii will fall down again in the charts...

Buzzi (on 01 February 2010)
over 11 millions in less than 10 weeks...doing about 300k since two weeks...10 weeks before the FY ends...Ok 13 millions is sure, I would say 15 in another 3-4 months and 20 in one year, but it can do even better. Right now a bundle is not necessary, but maybe for this Christams Nintendo could bundle Wii with some of the top games (SMG2, NSMBW, MH3, Xenoblade or The last Story, Zelda Wii!!): that would help the Wii in having another great holiday, and also some extra cash from software.
down-down-down-down- (on 01 February 2010)
this game was so nice =),and the sales are deserved it,talking about sales the sales are incredible week 1-6 are sold over 1 million,WOW respect nintendo!
Showertea (on 01 February 2010)
@Fukudalakasone
The Wii is the best selling console of this generation. NSMBWii is on it's way to being the fastest selling non-bundled game ever, and possibly the best selling non-bundled game ever. Why exactly would Nintendo want to bundle this? It doesn't make any sense to bundle a game that's making you several million dollars a week with a console that doesn't need a sales boost.
brute (on 01 February 2010)
When I said huge, I meant as in 25-30 mil.

bimmylee (on 31 January 2010)
There's only 4.5 million currently separating this game and both Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2's in combined sales... holy CRAP... it's eventually going to actually outsell both COMBINED!!!
fukudalakasone (on 30 January 2010)
New Super Mario Bros Wii is presently beating Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (the greatest selling non bundled home console game of all time) in lifetime sales based on the number of weeks NSMB Wii has been available.

Please Nintendo, PLEASE don't ruin this games sales achievement by announcing an "official console bundle" with this game to make the sales invalid!

ash3336 (on 27 January 2010)
Apparently they will shit out Mario game this year. I mean, it is different (3d to 2d) but it is still Mario. But I expect this to continue to sell over 20 million units in the next year.
chickenLittle (on 27 January 2010)
nsmbwii lucky to have japan sales.
jefforange89 (on 26 January 2010)
There's no way it won't outsell MW2 - Nintendo doesn't shit out Mario games yearly like Activision does CoD games.

Davey1983 (on 25 January 2010)
@BladeofGod

Sorry, but it will outsell both versions of MW2. It will take several months (at its current rate it will overtake MW2 in about September or October), perhaps all year, but it will eventually overtake MW2.
oliist (on 25 January 2010)
It will outsell both versions combined.
Right now it is 4.72m behind & sold 134k more last week than both MW2 combined.
Just a matter of time.
BladeOfGod (on 25 January 2010)
@PS360fan10

it wont outsell MW2. Its 5 million copies behind. The reason it sold so much is because of holiday season.
PS360fan10 (on 24 January 2010)
These sales are crazy! Crazy enough to even say this might outsell MW 2 on both Xbox 360 and PS3 combined. Dude!
trangentspree (on 24 January 2010)
He never said Xbox! He said a single platform again and again. I'll keep hammering on about this until it registers with people. This bet was over and done with LAST YEAR.
Buzzi (on 24 January 2010)
Once and for all: Reggie was speaking of one version (probably 360) in one region after NPD data (so probably Americas). NSMBW outsold PS3 version in every region, and WW also X360 version. But it has not yet outsold X360 version in the Americas.

Great sales in America continue but no surprise. Starting to finally get bigger shipments of this game at the Gamestop I work at but selling out of those as well (although not as fast). Were getting shipments of about 10-15 but now about 20 at a time.

Also I think what we've noticed for others is even though it isn't a colossal hit in the UK (although still big) the rest of the European and Other regions it seems to be that big hit haha. Can't really judge the NSMB Wii sales totally off UK charts which is unusual for most big Wii games. But NSMB Wii will still continue to sell quite well in the UK for a long time.
morenoingrato (on 20 January 2010)
this game must do about 170k in others so I lose the bet this week so I think I'll remain for another week

I had no issues with the motion controls. They added positively to the experience.
Smeags (on 17 January 2010)
It was almost like a "rub your head, pat your belly" situation for me in 7-Tower... where you have to tilt the controller all while moving and trying to avoid Bob-ombs. It was tough, but nothing more.

Ludwig did have the best traps. ;-)

@ Okey-dokey

I don't think I've had such problems, I think it;s bets to keep your hand fairly steady :D
--OkeyDokey-- (on 15 January 2010)
The motion controls are kind of annoying. Especially in level 7-3 (I think) where you have to move the platforms left to right.

Sometimes I move the controller slightly to the side mid-jump and the platform flies from under Mario's feet. Other times I accidentally spin attack while on a platform and it moves while I spiral downward to my death >_>
Nintendogamer (on 15 January 2010)

This will easily outsell New Super Mario Bros. for DS and many other games, this will definitly be one of the top 3 best-selling Wii games including Wii Sports
trangentspree (on 14 January 2010)
In light of NPD results... did this game actually make the 10 million in 7 weeks????
c0rd (on 14 January 2010)
My god those first 6 weeks' sales are beautiful. All above 1.4mil, which is just... insanity.

Others region isn't showing enough 2D Mario love!
Cheebee (on 14 January 2010)
Whoa, over 10 million... O_O
Aidman (on 14 January 2010)
Congractulations 10 Millions babies ^_^.
marcianito (on 14 January 2010)
big drop? lol... those are great sales for january
Polarimetric (on 13 January 2010)
I love how this game's astronomical debut sales are making a one-week American sales number of 193,822 look like bad news.
Gearbox (on 13 January 2010)
@killeryoshis - there are no shortages stop saying thats what it is. christmas time is over sales drop big whoop
Khuutra (on 13 January 2010)
It broke GTA:SA's record.

Woo!
killeryoshis (on 13 January 2010)
Darn the shortage,Its keeping the sales low
MirrorWorld (on 13 January 2010)
10m!!! Wowza!
Diglet (on 13 January 2010)
It should slow down in the coming weeks. I expect 25 mil ltd.
SmokedHostage (on 13 January 2010)
I still have some coins to get but I'm on my way.
cura (on 13 January 2010)
Best Wii game imo.

It's doing really well too
aoixgp (on 13 January 2010)
2 Down 1 to go
Nintendogamer (on 13 January 2010)
10 million mario hits it, and if all these supply constraints malarky is true then this game will see higher sales in the future.
Paul (on 13 January 2010)
Is this game still supply constrained in the states? It is in Canada. Weird that they can't keep it i n stock when the sales have droped off so much since Christmas.
Killergran (on 13 January 2010)
10 million! Finally. Took it long enough...
salaminizer (on 13 January 2010)
160k left!
killeryoshis (on 12 January 2010)
This game bombed no doubt. Its already at 800,000 sold this week. Bad legs. It won't be long until it sells 500,000 sales. This game is so frount loaded
:-P
nordlead (on 12 January 2010)
well, at this point it is obvious. This will be the fastest single platform game to sell 10m units, beating the previous record of 9 weeks by GTA:San Andreas
makingmusic476 (on 12 January 2010)
New Super Mario Bros. won platformer of the year and came in 6th overall in [url=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=384655]neogaf's game of the year vote[/url]! :D
guiduc (on 12 January 2010)
What is interesting about Nintendo is that they can even improve their games further (more mini-games, online, level editor, more characters) to make the sequel better each time and still keep the original excellent!
guiduc (on 11 January 2010)
@bimmylee

I really don't know

@Monges79

Has that ever been accomplished before?
Monges79 (on 10 January 2010)
Is anyone else amazed that this game sold over 1 million copies WW six weeks in a row? WOW!
fwap (on 10 January 2010)
There is a slim chance this could be adjusted up again like it was last week, but very slim.

Have Famitsu numbers come in for this week yet? Are they ever coming for this week?
MasterZack (on 10 January 2010)
Its done. NSMBWii will domain the world.
marcianito (on 10 January 2010)
reggie won!!! but nooooo it was so close to 10 mil
Omega_Phazon_Pirate. (on 10 January 2010)
Wow, 160 000 more copies before the 10M mark.

Wonder if it will ever reach 20M or even 30M? :O
Gearbox (on 10 January 2010)
wayyy better then call of duty. i might get a wii for this
BigGumby (on 10 January 2010)
Yes! Reggie was right! I love both games, but this is pretty amazing how it sold so much in so little time.
Brummipluesch (on 10 January 2010)
Yes, Reggie was right, better Sales than CoD MW 2 now. Incredible!!
mortono (on 10 January 2010)
As we've seen, you never know when this game can get an upward adjustment.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 10 January 2010)
I guess 7 consecutive weeks won't be happening, but, hey... It had a good run XD
MirrorWorld (on 10 January 2010)
Lol so close to 10m, and y u so low now AMERICA!
Aidman (on 10 January 2010)
Dam it shortage !! so close no matter it will break GTA's SA record. GO NSMB Wii.
marcianito (on 09 January 2010)
it was close
I like Bacon (on 09 January 2010)
hmm, I suppose if you do allign launches, then it would be 7 weeks instead of 8. Is that what we are actually counting?
ramonecaxa (on 09 January 2010)
There are 2 weeks left in Japan, so it will reach 10 million
I like Bacon (on 09 January 2010)
wow, I wasn't expecting sales to be that low in the americas.

oh well, it'll hit 10 million next week and beat San Andreas by one week.
SmokedHostage (on 09 January 2010)
What Khuutra said.
llewdebkram (on 09 January 2010)
6 X 1 million+ weeks, but it won't make 7 in a row.
guiduc (on 09 January 2010)
It kinda impress me that Americans consume more than Europa + Australia and all other countries other than Japan...
Khuutra (on 09 January 2010)
AWWWWWWWW

So close
bmmb1 (on 09 January 2010)
Killeregran, even if NA sales are less than that, add up week 6 and week 7 Japan sales (once they arrive...) and I am certain it will have reached 10 milion by week 7.
Killergran (on 09 January 2010)
Needs 451 159 units in the Americas to pass 10 million this week. Doubtful, really. But quite possible.
morenoingrato (on 09 January 2010)
How many weeks it is out?
7 or 8?
the_lonely_gamer_123 (on 09 January 2010)
This game will go past 20 million by Q4 2010
SmokedHostage (on 09 January 2010)
With NA numbers, 10 million.
Aidman (on 09 January 2010)
almost 440K from the Americas and the HOLY 10 MILLIONS in only 7 WEEKS. NSMB Wii GALACTICOS SALES even Aliens are buying it.
smj1860 (on 09 January 2010)
Just bought the game last night..wow...its so much fun!
c03n3nj0 (on 08 January 2010)
wow.... and I still need to buy this....
SaviorX (on 08 January 2010)
....Wait a minute.
808k? Wasn't it below the previous week (which was 690k before...I think)?

God have mercy.

"808,835"

lol o_o
SSurTails (on 08 January 2010)
Got ripped at EB games yesterday for this game (59,99$ but i had 20$ credit by trading in metroid prime 3 + another 5$). Pretty fun so far.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 08 January 2010)
Razorblood, let's not forget the part that multiplayer must've played in this game's success as well. This game takes everything that makes a mega-successful game and puts it in one package. Incredible.
Razorblood (on 08 January 2010)
When was the last time a 2D Mario came out on a home console? Super Mario World? People love Mario and have been waiting for a 2D Mario. Look at the one for the DS, 20mil. Mario + 2D + Large Wii Causal/Hardcore fans = Success.

It's looking good, I am playing with 2 players and its a lot of fun =D
Soma (on 07 January 2010)
Lol, I was reading all the comments and a lot of people predicted this would sell 10 millions the first year.

Who would had thought it did that in less than 2 months O_O
oliist (on 07 January 2010)
@Riot Of The Blood
Of course!
On its way to 40m it will inevitably pass 35m. :-D
solracbrit (on 07 January 2010)
It went up again??? What the hell is going on???
XD
This game is amazing
Riot Of The Blood (on 07 January 2010)
You guys think this game can get to 35m?
MirrorWorld (on 07 January 2010)
What is this I don't even...
Is Mario's printing money now too?
cliffhanger (on 07 January 2010)
Can you believe this will be at or very close to 10 million in 7 weeks? Unbelievable!
c0rd (on 07 January 2010)
I was hoping for a ~50k adjustment for week 2 Others, so it'd have that 6wk million streak. Funny how it was adjusted, up to 996k...

Nooooooooooooo~~
Arius Dion (on 07 January 2010)
The incredible thing is Nintendo's titles seem to just breeze past 10m like its nothing. Its almost as if 20m is now the benchmark lol. Galaxy won't get there (10m) but Brawl Will and WSR is past 10 already.
Nintendogamer (on 07 January 2010)
More or less topped 10 Million!
Buzzi (on 07 January 2010)
Now the thread about this as the fastest game ever to reach 10 millions will be pointless :P
Considering Japan (250+k and US (300+k) this must be damn near the 10 million mark! Hopefully it will be already over!
marcianito (on 07 January 2010)
lol adjusted up again! now over 9 millions
Smeags (on 07 January 2010)
A-adjusted again?!

Good heavens...
Khuutra (on 07 January 2010)
Looks like it's going to chew up and spit out GTA:SA's record...

another awesome adjustment. :D So freaking insane!
Fab_GS (on 07 January 2010)
OH LAWD!!!!!!
Vas-y (on 07 January 2010)
Reggie was referring to America's sales. This whole bet thing is getting on my nerves.
FrankMstone (on 07 January 2010)
Wow it was undertracked in others, already over 9 million!
Snake_eat_her (on 07 January 2010)
It has already sold more than MW2 in 360.. WOW.. they won!
Valdens (on 07 January 2010)
Bet won, wewt.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 07 January 2010)
Damn, adjusted up? This is crazy!
taq1109 (on 07 January 2010)
sold out everywhere!...though im going to buy this after finished FF13..
marcianito (on 07 January 2010)
sales were adjusted up?
Snake612 (on 06 January 2010)
I've never seen a game that has such strong sales. The game is selling 1 million worldwide on weekly basis
mortono (on 06 January 2010)
World 9 is insane. Those are some of the hardest Mario levels I've ever played.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 06 January 2010)
@ kopstudent

I'm going through world 8 trying to get all the star coins and I'm finding it much easier than most of the earlier worlds. Maybe I'm just getting better :P
Nintendogamer (on 06 January 2010)
World 9 is tough too not that it's very hard it just that they are long levels and if you die anywhere in the level you have to start all over again. but still it doens't make the game less fun.
kopstudent89 (on 06 January 2010)
yeah world 8 is one tough world. Especially when i play with my friends, who have no mario background unfortunately, but hell we have fun playing it and thats what matters
Buzzi (on 06 January 2010)
What if it sells 2 millions in Americas next week? In that case Reggie would be damn near winning his bet in every case (just in US and against MW2 360 version)...going to be the fastest selling game ever!
ClaudeLv250 (on 05 January 2010)
Poor Galaxy! Got its ass handed to it thoroughly. Not a bad game to 'lose' to, though.

At World 8 and am getting pwned hard.
MirrorWorld (on 05 January 2010)
WT-? Wow, this game is selling so well, and it is undertracked?!?!?!
Salnax (on 05 January 2010)
Its already beaten Galaxy, Ocarina of Time, and Melee... not bad for a game nobodyt knew about before the E3
lemieux-rules66 (on 05 January 2010)
Reggie... was right... 2012 came early!
brute (on 05 January 2010)
I wonder if it can make 7 weeks with sales over a million.
Khuutra (on 05 January 2010)
@famousringo: Even if it sells 400k in the next week of data, that still only accounts for Europe instead of the whole of Others

This game is a MONSTER
--OkeyDokey-- (on 05 January 2010)
*looks at American numbers*

EIGHT HUNDRE--*dies*
joora (on 05 January 2010)
Since Others ain't just Europe, it's most probably still undertracked.

Monster game.
I like Bacon (on 05 January 2010)
undertracked?

YES!!!!! :D XD
aoixgp (on 05 January 2010)
Platforming Bliss....gaming bliss
famousringo (on 05 January 2010)
@ Arius Dion

Not terribly undertracked. The NoE statement includes one last week of December sales that aren't up on VGC yet.
Blacksaber (on 05 January 2010)
I fear this game greatly...
Arius Dion (on 05 January 2010)
So now this game is UNDERtracked in EU?! My goodness.
sorento (on 05 January 2010)
europe 2.5 million http://www.jeuxvideo.com/news/2010/00039636-nintendo-europe-en-quelques-chiffres.htm
Fab_GS (on 05 January 2010)
Ha! It passed MW2 (X360).
Kenology (on 05 January 2010)
It always impresses me how you guys are on top of adjustments. I would never notice otherwise. 4.05k adjustment is MASSIVE.
Khuutra (on 05 January 2010)
Adjusted up to 4.05 in the Americas. Madness. MADNESS
LinKing12 (on 05 January 2010)
Bah dah bop bop bah, I'm lovin' it! Congrats!
FreeTalkLive (on 05 January 2010)
This has been the top selling game in the world 5 out of the 6 weeks it has been on the market. It barely lost one week to Wii Sports and NSMB Wii wasn't even out in Japan at that time. How many weeks will it stay at the top?
alexf10 (on 05 January 2010)
absolutely crazy...congratz @the old plumber
trangentspree (on 05 January 2010)
In its 6th week NSMBW is above and beyond its launch week in Others, and so close to its launch week figures in US.

NSMBW is doing rather well, one might say.
Nintendogamer (on 05 January 2010)
Ha and one person said my prediction of 8.7 Million was hilarious, but that was when NSMBWii was on 8.2 million, but my prediction of 8.7 Million doesn't look silly now.
Paul (on 05 January 2010)
I just saw another news story about nintendo in Europe estimating that this has sold 2.5 million in europe at the end of December. It could be a bit undertracked there as well since others includes more than just Europe.
Demotruk (on 05 January 2010)
Undertracked, that's crazy...
c0rd (on 05 January 2010)
Wait... what.

Are those America numbers real?

What
miz1q2w3e (on 05 January 2010)
How is this possible??? i didn't know that many mario fans existed!! :O
Buzzi (on 05 January 2010)
Adjusted up!! This sales are the most incredible thing I've ever seen during this gen!
Zucas (on 05 January 2010)
You know I had a feeling we were a little low on the Americas sales but man that is just crazy. 8.61 million in 6 weeks (only 4 in Japan). It has already outsold Galaxy. Just colossal.
kopstudent89 (on 05 January 2010)
its one million for 6 weeks Without Japanese numbers! CRAZY SALES I TELL YA!!
Smeags (on 05 January 2010)
Yep, bumped up ~400,000 units. Just insane!
nathlio (on 05 January 2010)
Wow!!! World wide NSMBW has now passed the Xbox360 version of Modern Warfare 2! That is insane!!! In North American sales only it just has 1.5 mil to go since they stand at 4.18 and 5.73. Crazy!
Paul (on 05 January 2010)
Online retailers and the stores around me are still having a hard time keeping this in stock. North American numbers should be sustained at very high levels for at least a few more weeks.
TheConduit (on 05 January 2010)
Week 5 will definetly be over 1 million with Japan numbers so it will have sold over 1million for 6 week's straight.

Have any other games done that before?
Cheebee (on 05 January 2010)
This game's sales are insane. :-D
MirrorWorld (on 05 January 2010)
I just realized that it has already outsold Mario Kart Wii in Japan. Crazy good!
bimmylee (on 04 January 2010)
Amazing game. I had the most fun playing with friends when our initial team effort deteriorated to throwing each other into thwomps and pits of lava. Nothing says "fun" like throwing a friend off a cliff.

Modern Warfare 2 on 360 is 8.4 million
NSMB on Wii is 8.2 million

Only 200,000 units to gain. Next week Mario will pull ahead.
Stats87 (on 04 January 2010)
My brother got this for Christmas and I played a fair bit of it before he returned home back East.

Is it wrong that it was most fun when we were dying a lot? Because with four people there were many mishaps. =P When there was only 3 of us we were beating levels easily...wasn't as fun.
sabby_e17 (on 04 January 2010)
This is selling so fucking well!!

Should reach 25 million.
TruckOSaurus (on 04 January 2010)
The sales in Japan are out of this world! 2.4 millions in 4 weeks!
kopstudent89 (on 04 January 2010)
Well in NA its beaten CoD's first week(360 version only) in its 6th week :P
nathlio (on 04 January 2010)
@ Majin

I think a 7th consecutive week is a definite possibility. The shortages reported in the Japan preview show that demand is still high and will most likely be up once more shipments come in!
JUG (on 04 January 2010)
I knew this would happen.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 04 January 2010)
@ Majin

The Japan preview predicts only 200k this week due to shortages. I think a 7th consecutive week over a million is out of the question now.
Aidman (on 04 January 2010)
All I wish is it will break the 20th Million in its life-time sales.
Go NSMB Wii Go GO GO.
TopCat8 (on 04 January 2010)
Wow. This game is a monster! Way to go Nintendo!
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 04 January 2010)
6 consecutive million seller weeks absolutely confirmed. Beyond incredible. I can't even put it into words.

Can it do seven?
Siko1989 (on 04 January 2010)
now who said it wont break 11 million by march lol, by looks of it, it will because theirs only 3 million sales left lol
The Ghost of RubangB (on 04 January 2010)
Hahaha, this game's lowest week was 320K, and that was its launch week in Others. It has been higher than 320K in every territory every week so far. This is just insanity. I wonder how fast it will break 15 million.
reallyfun (on 03 January 2010)
Wow....this game is a monster!!
Can't wait to see it break all kinds of sales records!!!! :D
marcianito (on 03 January 2010)
let see if it can pull 9 millions before the end of the year, it'll be intresting how it performes without the chritmas bost, it's been sold out in many places so probably many people still looking for this game
alexf10 (on 03 January 2010)
sales for this game are out of this world....never thought this will sell like it does.

this one could end as one of the best selling games ever
guiduc (on 03 January 2010)
6 consecutives weeks over a million! New Super Mario Bros Wii just broke a record!
nordlead (on 03 January 2010)
@famousringo

considering that Wii Sports is this generations biggest home console seller in Japan (it isn't bundled there) this should easily blow by in about 4-5 weeks (or less if it doesn't let down after the holidays).
IxisNaugus (on 03 January 2010)
Truly intense sales. I'm impressed.
mortono (on 03 January 2010)
Will it get over 9m by the end of the year?
SmokedHostage (on 03 January 2010)
100k from selling more than Galaxy.

This game is selling like crack.
Bruno Muņoz (on 03 January 2010)
What was the previous million selling weeks record? Mario already has 6 weeks.
Bruno Muņoz (on 03 January 2010)
This is the biggest game ever in terms of sales, it's a brutal monster.

I have a similar feeling with Avatar but this place is not Box Office Mojo XD
famousringo (on 03 January 2010)
The Japanese sales are mind blowing. Could it be the biggest console game of the generation in Japan with just a couple months?
ash3336 (on 03 January 2010)
First and only game to have first week 6 weeks over a million.
Shadowfest3 (on 03 January 2010)
Wow! The sales are simply amazing!
trangentspree (on 03 January 2010)
This is truly amazing.

Mario numbers just keep going up and up!

Dare I say it... they're even getting closer and closer to the launch week numbers...
GranTurismoHelperMax (on 03 January 2010)
fastest game to 10 million? not sure what the record is but if it didnt include multiple consoles (mw2), this games wins 4 sure.
cliffhanger (on 03 January 2010)
Week 6 already over a million without Japan. lol
Carl2291 (on 03 January 2010)
Monsterrr
supermario128 (on 03 January 2010)
Great legs! :-)
Zucas (on 03 January 2010)
Well currently selling at a faster rate than MW2. MW2 after 6 weeks was 7.83 million, this one at 8.2 million. And will be higher once Japanese sales fill all the way in.

Easily the biggest holiday game of the year and just incredible feats it's pulling off. There has been no other game like this in history of the market.
Khuutra (on 03 January 2010)
Holy smokes

Could this game manage SEVEN weeks at a million?
vglover08 (on 03 January 2010)
Insanity to the max! It's so exciting to see sales for this game skyrocket! =D
killeryoshis (on 03 January 2010)
It has a chance to get 7 weeks over a million........:-D
I like Bacon (on 03 January 2010)
8.2 million! Exactly my prediction! =3
MirrorWorld (on 03 January 2010)
Wow week 6 is already at 1mil w/o Japan. Craaaazy!
And at least Other sales are very consistent lol.
MontanaHatchet (on 03 January 2010)
Wait, 6 or (potentially) more consecutive weeks selling over a million?

Has any game ever done that ever? That's crazy.
Nintendogamer (on 03 January 2010)
8.2 Million, soon to top 10 Million, go my favourite plumber.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 03 January 2010)
Yeah, I think this game was pretty hard in general. Overall, the level design and multiplayer add superb replay value too so you get a lot of bang for your buck.
I like Bacon (on 03 January 2010)
I agree nordlead.

I find the game's difficulty to be perfect.
nordlead (on 02 January 2010)
@dtewi

honestly how hard do you want this game to be? Unless you are super good at Mario, first time playing this you are likely to die on almost every stage 1 time. For it to be any tougher, you'd have to go Lost Levels type of toughness which wouldn't be tolerated by the masses.
Riot Of The Blood (on 02 January 2010)
Starting to get pissed off. It's like stores don't carry this game or something.
Nightwish224 (on 01 January 2010)
AAA for sure.
Nintendogamer (on 01 January 2010)
@siko1989

and is seemed to have worked wonders, sales seems to have just risen much faster than a lot of people's predictions, sell overr a million for about 6 weeks in a row is not somethign to complain about, let's hope it will keep wii sales at a high pace for a while to come.
killeryoshis (on 01 January 2010)
Dtewi this is not a decent game. Its AAA. You better run
dtewi (on 01 January 2010)
Decent game, but it only got somewhat difficult towards the last world (I'm talking about World 8). I was hoping it would be harder. At least the final boss was actually the hardest main game level.
marcianito (on 01 January 2010)
i hope 8 mil with new numbers
Zucas (on 31 December 2009)
Yea for the week ending Dec 26th, we are looking at 500k Japan, probably another 500k in America, and another sold 300k in E/O. 1300k on the week to put it just right at 8 million, thereabouts.

On this page we'll see it as 4 weeks of over a million in sales, with the 5th going to happen, and even a shot at 6 weeks for it. Truly nothing else like it.
Gearbox (on 31 December 2009)
i didnt expect this to be so big in japan! this is friggen insane! lol

if it was as big as i thought it was going ot be the ps3 would have beaten the wii in japan by 50 000 units... now it lost :(
trangentspree (on 31 December 2009)
Media Centre has released numbers of 506,000 for NSMBW in Japan this week.

That would bring the weekly total for W4 to 1, 324, 497 - beating W3 sales worldwide and coming close to beating W2.

If it performs similarly in Japan next week W5 could be the 2nd best selling week worldwide for NSMBW!
ClaudeLv250 (on 31 December 2009)
A BALL!

It's what I'm having with this game. I'm in world 6, can't wait to beat the game so I can go play the levels I skipped, and then play the levels I've alreay done to get all the star coins.

indeed mate... its a perfect strategy nintendo pulled off to try and get the DS owners on the wii
cromeros (on 30 December 2009)
Amazing Sells...
dampowell (on 30 December 2009)
I think 10 million + by the new year. and a further 3- 4 million in January. (roughly averaging 800,000 or so per week
Nintendogamer (on 30 December 2009)
It's hilarious that this game is selling godly, deserved it too, it seemed like it introduced some DS owners to the Wii.
Polarimetric (on 30 December 2009)
Beating MW2 on the 360 and PS3 combined will be a challenge, but it's definitely doable. Even for the holiday season, these are breathtaking sales results. Mario Kart Wii has flown to 19.7 million in a year and five months when this game's sales look even stronger.

If sales of this game stay strong and the nostalgia that comes from this game is as effective as I think it's going to be, this game could sell 21-23 million in the time it took MKWii to sell 19. Since this game has probably about 2 years to sell (second-generation Wii is likely late 2011) it definitely has the time to do it.
midaks (on 30 December 2009)
well the way I see COD MW2 (both ps3 and 360) has sold over 14 m.... this game has only sold around 7 now yeah this game will easily beat the systems separately but combined would be a tough thing atleast for the next month considering the fact that people are also still buying COD MW2
scottie (on 29 December 2009)
Week 6 it should manage it because it covers up to the 26th in Americas/Others, and the Japanese holiday season will still be in effect I think. Week 7 is less likely.
SaviorX (on 29 December 2009)
With Japan sales, it will crush 1 million Worldwide on Week 4 and 5. May just pass 1m Week 6.
FreeTalkLive (on 29 December 2009)
What a fantastic game. Nintendo took the DS game and improved on it in every way.
brunei11 (on 29 December 2009)
xD i remember when reggie said: "NSMBWii will outsell CoD MW 2" and everyone including nintendo fans laugh now it seems real
laxdman4 (on 29 December 2009)
@SuperSteveyLes:

Have you played in the latter worlds? You go through lives pretty quickly. Also, if you are playing with four people its easy to burn through lives.

This game is amazing. I'm almost glad there is no online because it is so fun to work with the other people in the room.
SuperSteveyLes (on 29 December 2009)
A load of fun, my only criticism so far is that it's too easy to get extra lives on it, I've got 96 so far and I've only had it for a few days.
noname2200 (on 28 December 2009)
@mortono:

Use the warp pipes to beat the game quickly, and thus unlock the Save Anytime feature.

When going for Star Coins, keep track of your deaths: beat the level immediately after your fifth death.
mortono (on 28 December 2009)
I'm playing again to get a perfect "no-superguide" game. Any tips?

This is the best game ever.
DaAndy (on 28 December 2009)
In comparison to "normal" games MKWii had incredible awesome sales. But what NSMBWii is doing is simply ... impossible. Unbelieveable.
It sells so awesome compared to MKWii, as i first stated MKWii sales compared to "normal" games.

Yeah I know MKWii was released in April not right before christmas, but NSMBWii's sales are not of/from this world ... insane
This is so huge ... so huge ... so huge ...
Toddifer (on 28 December 2009)
I picked this up at Best Buy for $39.99 today....I'm enjoying these stores with their aggressive price cutting to get sales...they had Madworld for $9.99 as well. Sweet deal.
shokenchi (on 28 December 2009)
@uruler, lbp is overrated. the user rating is a lot lower than the critic reviews while mario is vice versa.
Nintendogamer (on 28 December 2009)
@Uruler

If you think NSMBWii didn't get great reviews aka 87% then your barmy, plus it got a few 7's and a uncalled for 58%. In my opition the 58% should have been 88% and the 7's should have been 9's or 10's, this game should have got above 90%.

Millions of people will disagree with you, Mario sdie-scrolling is magical.
guiduc (on 28 December 2009)
@Uruler
You don't even know Mario's magic. LBP will never be able to do that.
90% of people disagree with you, so you might be reported for this post.

@alexf10
It is a little hard but buy it to play with your niece. She will adore that game.
killeryoshis (on 28 December 2009)
This game is awsome :-D
Though in conclusion of these sales. Nintendo were idoits for not releaseing a 2-D mario before n a home console. Have they learned their lesson :-D
Boggern (on 28 December 2009)
@ uruler
Itīs OK if you like LBP more than NSMB Wii, but you will also have to accept that most people donīt agree with you. Calling us idiots wonīt alter that fact.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 28 December 2009)
Is Nintendo planning to bundle this with a red Wii or was that whole thing just my imagination? Well, they should anyway :P
ChrisIsNotSexy (on 28 December 2009)
Its actually doing better in Japan than NA
alexf10 (on 28 December 2009)
so 2d mario is still the strongest franchise in the industry?? well done old plumber well done....

btw. i dont have bought the game yet. is it any good? i would like to play it with my 6 year old niece...is it to hard or can a six year old have fun with the game?
MirrorWorld (on 28 December 2009)
Y so beast Mario? :P If it sells a million this week then that's like 4 1m+ selling weeks in a row. Pretty sure that its like the only game to ever do that.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 28 December 2009)
Another 500k in Japan. I've never seen sales like this before.
fwap (on 28 December 2009)
With Week 4 sales for Japan over 500k total sales are in fact INCREASING.
Khuutra (on 28 December 2009)
This game is more than just a monster. It may end up with SIX weeks of 1,000,000+ after aligning launches. Insane.

INSANE.
marcianito (on 27 December 2009)
doing better than MK wii
ash3336 (on 27 December 2009)
Officially the first and only game to have the first 3 weeks with over a million in sales. Most likely, this will continue on until week 5.
primogen18 (on 26 December 2009)
Sold out everywhere around here, has become a hard to find game now. Not sure about anywhere else though.
Red4ADevil (on 26 December 2009)
Just bought it today along with another wii remote, so that my brother and his girlfriend can play (black wii remote).
Paul (on 26 December 2009)
This game is still sold out everywhere in my area. The legs will be solid as supply catches up with demand.
daactualfact (on 26 December 2009)
Expect Sales beyond mkwii men.
daactualfact (on 26 December 2009)
A GAME FROM THE HEAVENS! That's all you can say. Once picked up, the earliest you will put it down will be 5hrs later at least. (that's if you like to savor the moment and not try to beat the damn game in a day because you are “hard to the core”)
kopstudent89 (on 26 December 2009)
This game is too fun, and i'm still in World 1!! :P My brother initially didnt want the game, now he's hogging it all the time. Damn you Nintendo!
Khuutra (on 26 December 2009)
This is going to be fun to watch for the next few weeks/months.
headshot91 (on 26 December 2009)
woah this is going to guaranteed have 5+ million selling weeks!
I can't think of another game that has done that???!
MasterZack (on 26 December 2009)
Megaman79, anyways Reggies wins to the PS3 version.
megaman79 (on 25 December 2009)
@Intendo21, Reggie gambled on one of the platforms MW2 numbers, i don't think he actually meant the 360 version.
Intendo21 (on 25 December 2009)
Looks like Reggie will win his bet.
trestres (on 25 December 2009)
Holy shit this thing is a beast. Just take your time and look at this, think about it for a minute. It's selling 500k more in Japan on its third week, and it has the 2 biggest weeks ahead there.

Wow.
Kihniö (on 25 December 2009)
Got it for christmas...Yeah
guiduc (on 25 December 2009)
Do you know why Nintendo have such amazing selling games on their console? It's because they know how to appeal people. You don't need to be Modern Warfare 2 to please long time fans like me.
RPG (on 25 December 2009)
6 weeks at 1+ million is a lock so the question is if it will do 7 weeks. A game like this clearly has the chance because it is popular WW.

I have to say it deserves every single sale. It's literally the 3rd game I have purchased in the last 2 years so it has to be special. :P
megaman79 (on 25 December 2009)
Halo better keep quite next time its talking about brand recognition.

These sales really are PHENOMENAL
Killergran (on 25 December 2009)
Looks like it's going to sell more than 1 million in the 5 first weeks! That's out of this world!
donsterydo2 (on 25 December 2009)
Insane legs O_o
kopstudent89 (on 25 December 2009)
look at Japan, just frickin insane!
sep85dd (on 25 December 2009)
Best mario since Super Mario 64. And look: It was going UP in Japanese sales and itīs name is NOT Tomodachi Collection or Seaman ;-)
axumblade (on 25 December 2009)
10 million in 10 weeks! I predict it now
MonstaMack (on 24 December 2009)
Wow sick sales but I can believe it.
We have been sold out of it at work and several retailers have sold out of it B&M wise unlike Modern Warfare 2 which has been readily available over the holidays. If things keep selling like this then I think it can surpass Modern Warfare 2 360 sometime in Feb.
blue7x7 (on 24 December 2009)
I doubt it will catch up to the xbox 360 version of Modern warfare 2 by the end of the year but in early 2010 it definitely will.
Arandur (on 24 December 2009)
CoD:MW2 for Xbox360, there we go! ;).
Snake612 (on 24 December 2009)
The sales of this game are just amazing. The developers were right when they said this game will have strong legs.
adam84 (on 24 December 2009)
good god! this game is even bigger than i thought. dont get me wrong i knew it would be big but....just wow
supermariouniverse (on 24 December 2009)
Mario
is
God

hahaha. Crazy sales!
c0rd (on 24 December 2009)
Haha, damn. Just realized that when launches are lined up, this game will have 5, maybe 6 weeks of sales before it goes under 1 million.

That's going to be fucking beautiful. 3 weeks from now, I'm looking forward to seeing the chart!
chris_wing (on 24 December 2009)
MW2 on 360 is at 7.83 million
NSMBW is at 6.68 million

Five weeks to go to gain 1.15 million.
No problem! Reggie wins!
Khuutra (on 24 December 2009)
Good Christ, the game is a monster!
guiduc (on 24 December 2009)
It's sold out everywhere in Montreal!
guiduc (on 24 December 2009)
Reggie wins... wow. With the big opening of Modern Warfare 2, I thought it was over.
sabby_e17 (on 24 December 2009)
Woah, unbelievable sales. Especially in Japan.

And it looks like it could pass 20 million.
MasterZack (on 24 December 2009)
Reggie wins!!
Nintendogamer (on 24 December 2009)
Oh more numbers added I thought the chart chnaged a bit.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 24 December 2009)
This is pretty much guaranteed to have 5 consecutive million seller weeks worldwide.

Unbelievable.
haxxiy (on 24 December 2009)
Doing far better in Japan then I expected. Sales in Others are quite... stable.
Smeags (on 24 December 2009)
Simply incredible Japanese sales.
Hisiru (on 24 December 2009)
Reggie was right.
killeryoshis (on 24 December 2009)
It has 3 weeks over a millionj. Go Mario!
Nintendogamer (on 24 December 2009)
6 million!
Buzzi (on 24 December 2009)
Media Create says 568k in Japan this week, that would be crazy! It would reach 2m in less than a month, while there was (and is) some people who thought NSMBW would have never reached 2m...looking for 3millions by 1-2 months.
noname2200 (on 24 December 2009)
Oh, it won't be that long. Iwata's learned his lesson. Although I'm not sure just how much of a threat directed at his developers that promise was meant to be...
vonboysp (on 23 December 2009)
would you ike to be unfrozen when the next real 2-d mario game comes out in 20 years or so :b
chris_wing (on 22 December 2009)
Hopefully when I'm done playing through Yoshi's Island on my SNES this game will be back in stock where I live. I plan to play the two best Mario games back to back, then have myself frozen as a lasting example of joy in it's purest form for future generations to appreciate.
IxisNaugus (on 22 December 2009)
Finally grabbed myself a fresh copy of this. That's another sale for the Others sections :)
oliist (on 22 December 2009)
http://vgchartz.com/games/game.php?id=3427®ion=All
@Gilgamesh
Only if you combine the different system sales.
PlayStation 2 version has 'only' two consecutive weeks over 1million.
Or did I miss something?
Gilgamesh (on 22 December 2009)
@Oliist, San Andreas
megaman79 (on 22 December 2009)
Im sorry, i didn't think this was all that, and a bag of chips.

It was too easy and it was WAY TOO NOSTALGIC.

SMG2 here we come.
oliist (on 22 December 2009)
No other game was even able to sell one million+ units in more than TWO consecutive weeks.
So Nintendo has set another record that can only be broken by Nintendo sometime in the future. :-)
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 22 December 2009)
So, okay ... It's all but confirmed that the first four weeks will all be over a million.

Given that we're in Christmas time, weeks five and six could well hit a million too... Has anything like this ever happened before?
Khuutra (on 22 December 2009)
Looks like we're about to get another week over a million.

The game is on FIRE
bmmb1 (on 22 December 2009)
Week 3 in Japan according to Media Create - ~530K !!!!!
le4nder (on 21 December 2009)
Seems like Reggie is winning his bet. NSMBWii easily passed the PS3 version of MW2. By end of January, it may have passed the 360 version too.
guiduc (on 21 December 2009)
underrated game. What is really happening with reviewers? Are they blind or just volontary against Nintendo?
--OkeyDokey-- (on 21 December 2009)
I underestimated Japan O_o
SaviorX (on 20 December 2009)
Sales have actually.....increased in Japan over Week 2...More than 454k!!!
oliist (on 20 December 2009)
You are all to low with your overall predictions for the coming update.
It will be something between 1.7 - 2.2 million WW.
Believe :-P
guiduc (on 20 December 2009)
Let me take a guess for next week...

NSMBW

Japan - 480k
Americas - 520k
Others - 400 k

1,4 million
Buzzi (on 20 December 2009)
Oh, and the same in the Americas, while in Others it will just come in top 150 next week :(

Easily will reach 7 millions before the year ends, and 10 millions hopefully at the beginning of February.
Buzzi (on 20 December 2009)
Next week NSMBW will enter in the Japanes top 100 of all time, hopefully with WSR!
nordlead (on 20 December 2009)
@st_muscat0

why should I find it sad that one of the best games of the decade is about to outsell one of the other best games of the decade. This game deserves to match Super Mario Bros World in sales (20m)
Khuutra (on 20 December 2009)
@st_muscat0:

In the sense that Galaxy deserves more sales than it has? Sure.

In that NSMBWii doesn't deserve the sales it's going to get? No, I don't find it sad at all. I find it exhilarating, even joyous.
IllegalPaladin (on 20 December 2009)
I found it at ToysRUs a few weeks ago with a buy one get another game half off deal no less.

Outside of Super Mario Brothers 1 and 3, I hadn't really played a lot of the side scrolling Mario games so New Super Mario Brothers is certainly taking some time to get used to as I rack up the deaths.

It's quite frustrating to grab a power up only to lose it a fraction of a second later.
st_muscat0 (on 20 December 2009)
Is it just me or does anyone else also find it said that this will outsell Galaxy in like 3-4 weeks?
supermariouniverse (on 19 December 2009)
Getting the sales it deserves
noname2200 (on 19 December 2009)
If you're in the US, and looking for this game, try Fry's or Target: they seem to be the only places with plenty of copies.
cliffhanger (on 19 December 2009)
yeah, this is sold out everywhere in my area.
Ghazi4 (on 19 December 2009)
meh i wanted to get this before i came back to my home country from USA and it was sold out :P
Madanial (on 19 December 2009)
Shit, i wish i have time to get this soon. T_T
marcianito (on 18 December 2009)
I went to waltmart and gamestop today and this game was sold out
SaviorX (on 18 December 2009)
JP - 260k
US- 510k
Others- 380k
1.15 million next week.
mortono (on 18 December 2009)
next week:

500k America
400k Others
200k Japan
~1.1 million WW

It will easily reach 7m by the end of the year.
Paul (on 18 December 2009)
I went to 3 stores today and it was sold out in all three.
Ostro (on 18 December 2009)
Others still growing ^^
guiduc (on 18 December 2009)
Another million FTW!
chris_wing (on 18 December 2009)
Reggie said it would sell more by the end of the holiday spending season, which he named as the end of January. He made a specific point of the end of Jan. MW2 on 360 is ahead by 2million with almost 6 weeks to go. It's doable!!
MasterZack (on 18 December 2009)
CoD:MW2 PS3 version= 4.88m

Reggie wins!
marcianito (on 17 December 2009)
i said it 5 million this week
elmerion (on 17 December 2009)
Iwata: (laughs)
Reggie: Did you see that?
All: (laughter)
IxisNaugus (on 17 December 2009)
Collosal sales. Above Modern Warfare 2 for the PS3 right now, i don't think it can reach the X360 version before the new year though...
SmokedHostage (on 17 December 2009)
My predictions for next week.

JPN - 210k
US - 400k
Others - 350k
oliist (on 17 December 2009)
My estimations for next week

JP 420k
US 630k
Others 500k
morenoingrato (on 17 December 2009)
I don't think reggie was that insane
SaviorX (on 17 December 2009)
The sales are unreal...how a game could possibly increase in sales from a previous week of 370k boggles the mind.

Japan may be 275k for week three. May beat my expectations again. Could it actually catch Modern Warfare?
Omega_Phazon_Pirate. (on 17 December 2009)
Wow, the sales are massive.
scottie (on 17 December 2009)
@ okey - Reggie stated that he included sales up to Jan 31st as 'holiday sales' (because most jan sales are people spending money and gift cards they got for christmas anyway) so there are about 7 weeks left for NSMB catches up. I still don't think it will do it, but it'll be close.
atma998 (on 17 December 2009)
and another 5 million seller for the Wii!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 17 December 2009)
@ Anthony

IIRC, the Reggie thing was for America only. Still 2 million away, but closing the gap only 200k a week.
PhalanxCO (on 17 December 2009)
Holy Carp!
AnthonyW86 (on 17 December 2009)
Haha can't believe this, Reggie might actually be proven right. Only 2 million behind MW2 360. It's gonna be close. :P
--OkeyDokey-- (on 17 December 2009)
Goddamn, this is the biggest Wii game yet O_o
Cheebee (on 17 December 2009)
Whoa what? Over 5 million already? Insane. O_O
guiduc (on 17 December 2009)
You beat the PS3 version, yeah! Seems like Reggie is filled with wisdom! He's so incredible to win this bet.
guiduc (on 17 December 2009)
just 90 000 units and you beat the PS3 version of Modern Warfare in America. Go Go Go Mario!
oliist (on 17 December 2009)
So only one question remains.
Do we have enough crow for the end of January? :-P
Hobowan (on 17 December 2009)
@red4adevil:
looking at the 3rd and 4th weeks in europe/americas, it will likely sell over a million for 4 consecutive weeks once japans had their figures for those weeks, not just 2!
Hobowan (on 17 December 2009)
looks like reggie was filled with more wisdom than a lot of people gave him!
Red4ADevil (on 17 December 2009)
Holy crap!!!! Never before in my life saw a nintendo title sell a million units in 2 consecutive weeks. This title will definitely have legs.
lestatdark (on 17 December 2009)
Wow, this game is a powerhouse!

I really appreaciate Nintendo for giving us the true successor to SMW :) This game is amongst the hall of fame of all-time Classics :)
nathlio (on 17 December 2009)
Looks like my prediction that NSMBW would pass Call of Duty MW2 PS3 the week ending Dem 12 was correct. NSMBW is setting itself up to pass the x360 version before the end of January. Shoot! It only has 2 million to go now.
Bamboleo (on 17 December 2009)
this game is a granted 15 million seller.

If not more.
mortono (on 17 December 2009)
NSMB Wii > Call of Duty on PS3
SmokedHostage (on 17 December 2009)
Other says just keeps going up.

Also Japan and US sales this week are about the same.
Buzzi (on 17 December 2009)
YAY!! Over 5 million right now, next week will hopefully add one more million, on its way to 7 millions before Jenuary.
nordlead (on 17 December 2009)
@Derixs

I almost think the numbers don't update until the complete World Wide weekly numbers are in.
Derixs (on 17 December 2009)
12/17 9:56 am. From what the numbers show this game should have a total of 4.75 million not the 3.90 that it shows there now...
stimpi13 (on 17 December 2009)
this game is a monster!!!
rapsuperstar31 (on 16 December 2009)
@mortono I believe you have to not only unlock every warp cannon but you have to actually use them! Also what nordlead mentioned as well.
SaviorX (on 16 December 2009)
Japan Week 2 is ~450k
Rawnchie14 (on 16 December 2009)
Pretty fun game with lots of people - especially your older family members. Oh the struggles... lol
Nintendogamer (on 16 December 2009)
Very close to 5 Million already.
nordlead (on 15 December 2009)
@mortono - you probably need to find all the secret paths. Check out the cheats page as there is a list on how to unlock all the stars.
mortono (on 15 December 2009)
So I got all the star coins 1-9. But I still haven't unlocked all the movies and I only have 4 stars on the character selection screen. What am I missing?
SaviorX (on 14 December 2009)
So the Japan Preview corroborated what I said before, and that was 420k in Japan. All we need is for Americas and Others come in with that minimum of 640k. Others might increase again over last week, but maybe 350k tops.
Zucas (on 14 December 2009)
Hmm wonder what the parameters were for that over 2 million number Ninty was talking about. Either ioi is wrong about Ninty internal tracking not being absolutely correct, we are under tracking, or they weren't just talking about the first week of December but up until that actual Thursday timeframe (which would be kinda silly).

Oh well game is still selling amazing and will probably be close to if not over 5 million once sales come in this week. That is just simply incredible.
abcdario (on 14 December 2009)
Weīll see if Reggie Rocks or Reggie Ices :P
supermario128 (on 14 December 2009)
And it will only keep on selling. :-)
Buzzi (on 14 December 2009)
There are so many versions of Reggie's bet XD

He was speaking of the Americas territory, not WW. And he directly spoke of just one version. The game is selling great but will not pass the sales of MW2 ps3's version next week. Probably before the end of Jenuary like Reggie said though.
nathlio (on 14 December 2009)
After seeing the latest Japan Preview it is very obvious that this game will pass MW2 for PS3 for the week ending Dec 12th. NSMB Wii should have over 5mil and PS3 version will still be under 5 mil. It makes me think that NSMB Wii still has a chance of passing the 360 version before the end of January. It will be close.
Wyku (on 14 December 2009)
This game is sold out everywhere in my area, pretty wild.
specialops787 (on 14 December 2009)
The fate is sealed. Reggie said single platform, I predict that next week NSMBW overtakes MW2 on PS3.
fwap (on 14 December 2009)
Reggie may be laughing. Time will tell.
Arius Dion (on 14 December 2009)
It's pretty close to the PS3 version Sonic. Single Platform.
sonicshuffle (on 13 December 2009)
Still 3 million away from MW2.Any day Reggie. Change your mind.
ash3336 (on 13 December 2009)
Same!!! I saw this and a PS3 ad!! Ninty and Sony are going all out.
killeryoshis (on 13 December 2009)
I remember seeing a commercial for this game before watching 2012 Guess they'll market anywhere
Cheebee (on 13 December 2009)
Wow, almost 4 million already?

Haha, there's a NSMBW commercial on tv here just now. Such a coincidence. :-P
marcianito (on 13 December 2009)
it's gonna hit 5 millions next week
Asriel (on 13 December 2009)
Interesting sales in Others-they're increasing each week.
mortono (on 13 December 2009)
~300k Japan
~350k America
~350k Europe
~1m WW
I LOVE GIGGS (on 13 December 2009)
I think it will sell 400k in America, 400k in Others and 400k in Japan. 1.2 million WW.
guiduc (on 13 December 2009)
Mario Bros always have strong legs in Japan. Final Fantasy will probably never beat Mario. In LTD, it's sure.

NSMB Wii will easily beat Modern Warfare 2 on PS3 and, after that, on 360. Mario FTW
SaviorX (on 13 December 2009)
So, 420k in Japan, 310k in Americas, and 330k in Others for Week 4? (1.06million)
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 13 December 2009)
Just got all star coins. Man, I'm beat.
ChrisIsNotSexy (on 13 December 2009)
Very good opening in Japan,but will it sell better than XIII this month?
For all i know XIII can double that number :)
It will be tight,I'm glad that XIII has an worthy opponent :P
puffy (on 13 December 2009)
I win, I predicted 2.2 Million first week :P
mortono (on 13 December 2009)
This week NSMB Wii sold more than Call of Duty 360, Call of Duty PS3, Assassin's Creed 360, Assassin's Creed PS3, and Left 4 Dead combined.
Roflinator (on 12 December 2009)
@ocarinaoftime: ...No. This is week ending Dec 5th. Nintendo made the announcement on the 10th or so. And please don't abuse periods and question marks.
Killergran (on 12 December 2009)
That is one humongous opening week. More than anyone had predicted.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 12 December 2009)
:O sales
kopstudent89 (on 12 December 2009)
right others sales are now 1. WOW! 2.2 million
Ostro (on 12 December 2009)
other sales look funny getting stronger. but still, the sales in others kinda disappoint me
kopstudent89 (on 12 December 2009)
They reported 2 million 2 days ago. So it was after the week ending 5 december which makes perfect sense
ocarinaoftime (on 12 December 2009)
if nintendo reported 2m in america arnt the american numbers under tracked???????.........
SaviorX (on 12 December 2009)
Woah, WTF? Others sales were meshed together?

Crap.
Hisiru (on 12 December 2009)
@guiduc
Japan sales will make this game kill MW2 without problems.
guiduc (on 12 December 2009)
Reggie is right... omg... This will definitely beat Modern Warfare 2...
Mario... is... a monster...
nordlead (on 12 December 2009)
Nintendo stated 2m sold on the 10th, so we can only guess when the sales go up to. Nintendo has good internal tracking, so those sales could be up until the 9th, or they could be till the 5th. With no date given, we can only guess. According to VGChartz the sales indicate that it broke 2m units after the 5th.
Seece (on 12 December 2009)
@ Smeags, takes a while for all the total sales to update :-)
Smeags (on 12 December 2009)
Isn't Americas totals supposed to be 1.92 million instead of 1.55 million now? O.o
mortono (on 12 December 2009)
@inigo13

I think when Nintendo said that, they meant it for this week.
Inigo13 (on 12 December 2009)
Considering the 2 million number reported for America, the overall and third week numbers seem undertracked.
GianCarmen (on 12 December 2009)
Its getting close to passing Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3
nordlead (on 12 December 2009)
Got all the star coins. 9-7 was a pain for the star coins, and so was 9-4 & 9-5 for the last of the 3.

I also beat the game in the Minimum number of stages required. Obviously not to tough to do once you discover everything in the game.
Metallicube (on 11 December 2009)
My favorite Wii game next to Mario Kart and Smash Bros.. Classic Mario is finally back!
Zucas (on 11 December 2009)
palancas- well it does seem that us and NPD agree on Mario tracking for its first two weeks so with two sources saying the same thing, I doubt that's the case. What does seem the case is Mario is going to have huge selling power, akin to that of Mario kart in 2008, this holiday season.
SaviorX (on 11 December 2009)
World 6 was amazing, and hard!

Also.......YAY at best Week 1 prediction!
Nintendogamer (on 11 December 2009)
Over 3.1 Million!
mortono (on 11 December 2009)
The last world has the most difficult levels ever. On par with Mario 3 world 8.
SmokedHostage (on 11 December 2009)
Still working on collecting Star Coins.

I have all of them from Worlds 1-3.
palancas7 (on 11 December 2009)
@zuca: Either that or 2nd week is undertracked.
Zucas (on 10 December 2009)
Well if that news story talking about Nintendo internal numbers of 2 million copies sold in US, we could have sales of this game of over 600,000 in the Americas in its 3rd week which would be incredible considering that is more than the 2nd week which was also Black Friday week.

ioi did say with BF hardware numbers that Nintendo has good internal data so looking like NSMB Wii is going to be larger this holiday season than once thought. no wonder it is having problems staying in stock haha.
VivaLaWiida (on 10 December 2009)
Just finished it with all special star coins! :)
nordlead (on 10 December 2009)
@mortono

the typical reason sales go up in Europe isn't because it is 2 days sales (typically for big games, the first day is 1/2 of the first week sales) but because the game has finally made it throughout the region. While the game may launch on Friday in the UK, it might not show up in stores in another country for another week or so. Heck, the 28k for week 1 was because it was Australia only.
Rawnchie14 (on 09 December 2009)
Just finished the game, awesome fun =D
haxxiy (on 09 December 2009)
So I've played. Just more of the same, still Nintendo did a good job keeping this game nearly as good as some old 2D Marios. Far from an AAA score for me, but still a solid and fun experience.
mortono (on 08 December 2009)
Others is up due this being it's first full week of sales. Last week only accounted for 2 days.
Cheebee (on 08 December 2009)
Hm, Other sales are only rising? :-P
mortono (on 07 December 2009)
Next week:

936k Japan + ~450k America + ~250k Others = ~1.6m WW

nearly 3.8m by next week!
novasonic (on 07 December 2009)
6.5m by the end of '09. That's my guess. Maaaybe 7 at the most.
kopstudent89 (on 07 December 2009)
it will outsell the PS3 version of MW2 definitely by jan 2010 i'd say. 360 version, well not really :P

2 million already without japanese sales. My 5 million seems in the big already by jan 2010
OmegaRugalv3 (on 07 December 2009)
long term yes ... it will most likely outsell all MW2 COMBINED sales .... but by January 2010? ... nah .. too soon to make up that record breaking start MW2 is on.
dark_gh0st_b0y (on 07 December 2009)
maybe not by the end of January, maybe by the end of the January 2011 it will ousell both compared?

like it happened with Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit beating GTA IV in the long term?
RPG (on 07 December 2009)
Indeed Reggie will be crying a river for sure due to losing that bet. Can only hope he recovers from being embarrassed, don't think the 10+ million sales after January will be enough. :(
dsage01 (on 07 December 2009)
this will definitely not outsell the 360 version of mw2 not even the ps3 version by the end of January
RPG (on 07 December 2009)
So at least the first 3 weeks for this game will be a million WW which is simply incredible. That said this is such a good gameit deserves every sale it gets.
madmaniac (on 07 December 2009)
I own this game !!!
ganondorf7799 (on 07 December 2009)
I predict 7 million by the end of the year
Killergran (on 07 December 2009)
Over 2 million first week! That's pretty amazing. Only very few Wii games have big openings.

Hopefully I get to play it some this week :)
Buzzi (on 07 December 2009)
@bruno
Counting Japan it's possible. First week it's over 1.2 millions, second week at about 0.95 millions (in Japan over 200k is pretty sure in its 2nd week). The third week is difficult to guess, there's not Black friday and surely the game will have a decline. I would say 300-400k in Americas, 250-350k in Others, but Japan would have to see near or over 300k in its third week to have another million week in this case. Maybe if there was a bundle (and no FFXII).
ElRhodeo (on 07 December 2009)
Finished it yesterday (not 100% though, still a lot to play left) - this is so good. Contrary to what many reviewers said, I think there's a lot of new ideas and stuff in this game. And the amount of polish and finetuning is amazing.

I think people who hate on this game simply don't WANT to like it.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 07 December 2009)
It's going to reach 3 million next week, only counting Japan sales. So overall sales will most likely easily put it above 3,5 million. Which ensures that the week after, it'll cross 4 million.

Wonderful. :)
Bruno Muņoz (on 07 December 2009)
Any chance of becoming the first game that sells over a million units during 3 weeks in a row?
Zucas (on 06 December 2009)
Wooh this game is about to climb up the charts. May be the top selling video game for the rest of the year. This week in Japan we are already looking at 800k-900k. I'd also suspect another 600k from the other territories. 6 million by the end of the year isn't out of the question which would be simply incredible.
guiduc (on 06 December 2009)
So far one of the best platforming game in multiplayer. It's my favourite on the Wii. We are really lucky to get 2 Mario 3D + 1 Mario 2D on the same console.
axumblade (on 06 December 2009)
2 million already. :) I'm glad that all the games I've bought are having such a good boost. My store is all out of this game so it's good to see it's selling well.
c0rd (on 06 December 2009)
It won't be long until we'll be laughing at those who associated this game's sales with Mario Galaxy.

Hoping for 1.5mil next week (with Japan's opening)!
Killergran (on 06 December 2009)
Nice week 2 in others. As usual with Wii games releasing late in the week, it's bigger than week 1. :)

But this game is not about the big opening, it's all about the legs. With good legs, it can do 20 million. Without, it'll end up below 10. I'm betting on that it'll keep selling a lot for a very long time.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 06 December 2009)
Nice. Second week in all of others is even bigger than first. Let's hope it continues :)
Falk Sturmfels (on 06 December 2009)
No, its more, because the others-charts are not updated yet.
marcianito (on 06 December 2009)
2 million with Japan sales
haxxiy (on 06 December 2009)
@Falk Sturmfels - it is screwed up in every game in the case you haven't noticed. BF numbers do appear in the weekly chart but aren't counted yet in the summary for some reason.
Falk Sturmfels (on 06 December 2009)
Thats a funny summary in sales: Week one almost one million, week two almost 900k, and together thats 1.3 Million!! Wow!
SilentWolf (on 05 December 2009)
@ primogen18. Reggie didn't specifically say the 360 version. Geoff tried to get him to say the 360 version, but Reggie was pretty adamant about keeping the bet to "one particular platform".
Go here to see the interview:

http://www.gametrailers.com/episode/gametrailers-tv/77?ch=1&sd=0

The bet is made at about the 4:30 mark. You'll see that Geoff tries to slip in "on the 360" but it's pretty obvious Reggie didn't want to specify a platform.
Vas-y (on 05 December 2009)
The fun factor of this game increases 100% when adding at least a second player.
primogen18 (on 05 December 2009)
It's not just you he did say specifically the 360.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 05 December 2009)
@fwap

You certain? I can swear I heard him say it'd beat it on the 360 when talking to Geoff Keighley. I guess I might remember wrong, but I really have it imprinted into my memory that they specifically said 360.
Buzzi (on 05 December 2009)
Waiting for the 2nd million...
fwap (on 04 December 2009)
@Majin-Tenshinhan

I'm afraid Reggie only specified 'a single-platform' which would refer to either the Xbox or PS3 versions. With that in mind and PS3 figures so far, it seems relatively safe to predict he will win the bet by the end of January.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 03 December 2009)
@nordlead

Actually, Reggie was talking about the 360 version and only in the US. By the end of January. Looks like a safe bet that he's going to lose, sadly. Lifetime sales, however, are a completely different story.
nordlead (on 03 December 2009)
@okey,

crap, I guess you are right. I got my weeks mixed up.

Also, as for the CoD comment, it was for the PS3 version (as noted below me) since I believe that was what Reggie was talking about. I personally don't care which sells more but ultimately expect this one to sell more in the long haul.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 02 December 2009)
@ nordlead

Black Friday and the Japanese release are two different weeks. The next update should put it over 2 million, then the week after that it should be about 3.5 million with Japan's first week. MW2 will be nearing 7 million by that time.
guiduc (on 01 December 2009)
@nordlead

Actually, it's 1 million in preorders so we might see it hit at least 1.2 million

Mario's gonna kick Activision's butt!
nordlead (on 30 November 2009)
1m Japan first week, plus 500k black Friday week US, plus 300k in PAL this week, I'm going for 1.8m sold this week for 3m total. That'll only put it 1m behind CoD, which it can probably make up in the following 2 weeks.
ryansarmy (on 30 November 2009)
I love this game. It so very difficult playing even with just 1 other person but also very fun.
Paul (on 30 November 2009)
This was sold out at my local walmart the other day and when it released they had tons of copies. It is also sold out on amazon.ca and amazon.com. I think it will put up huge numbers going into christmas.
hmduong (on 30 November 2009)
@Nintendogamer, it would need 2.5M to catch up to MW2 ps3 if MW2 all of a sudden stops selling which is obviously not the case. MW2 will likely sell an additional million units on ps3 between now and year end I predict.
RCTjunkie (on 30 November 2009)
This game is amazazing.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 29 November 2009)
800k next week.
guiduc (on 29 November 2009)
Did you see in Japan? It is already near the million! This game will easily and fortunately outsell the PS3 version of MW2. And the game is so hard at 9-7! I love so much this game!
Nintendogamer (on 29 November 2009)
I think this has a very good chance of outselling MW2 PS3 version before 2010. It only needs about 2.5 million to do that.
Nintendogamer (on 29 November 2009)
I think this has a very good chance of outselling MW2 PS3 version before 2010. onloy needs about 2.5 million to do that.
supermario128 (on 29 November 2009)
9-7 is hard, trust me. :P
uno (on 29 November 2009)
This game is fun but not as amazing as Galaxy.

Its not very hard so far.
supermario128 (on 29 November 2009)
1.28 million, it's a sign!
Buzzi (on 29 November 2009)
This week can be another million-week: Black Friday in US (in the preview "well over 500k" so I hope for 600k, in Others it had just two days, at least it will reach 200k but likely over 300k IMO.
cliffhanger (on 29 November 2009)
I don't understand the graphics hate. I think the graphics look great! Besides, it's a 2D mario game. Who cares about graphics? lol
Killergran (on 29 November 2009)
Played it yesterday. It's a gem among 2D platformers. Not sure how excited I am by that genre anymore though.

Still, good fun!
ramonecaxa (on 29 November 2009)
It has poor sales in Europe...
joey123 (on 28 November 2009)
they look better than the DS graphics. the graphics dont matter anyway, gameplay is everything.
guiduc (on 28 November 2009)
No graphics are really cool and effects too. In Bowser's castle, you can see the reflexion of lava on Bowser's statue!

The sells are awesome

adam84

those are just Australian sales
adam84 (on 28 November 2009)
oh god just realised that most of the other sales are first day sales only. wow
adam84 (on 28 November 2009)
going to pick this up today with any luck, sold out at my local game,gamestation,tesco. The hunt goes on :-) cant wait and over time this will outsell MW2 on all formats im sure.
nordlead (on 27 November 2009)
no one on the current "best week 1" is going to be close once Japanese numbers come in.
GhaudePhaede010 (on 27 November 2009)
I still have to buy it...
primogen18 (on 27 November 2009)
omg, go others, wow. This has sold out almost every day ive worked so far at toys r us since it came out, so next weeks numbers will be HUGE especially with black friday.
guiduc (on 27 November 2009)
It will explode with Japan sales! Over 750 000 copies! Reggie is right... Mario Bros Wii will outsell the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2.
inu_1607 (on 27 November 2009)
I love it
pots555 (on 27 November 2009)
Very happy it's doing so well. Bought mine on the first day. Great game.
mortono (on 27 November 2009)
Numbers sould be higher for others next week since it will have a full week of data as opposed to 2 days.
Lolcislaw (on 27 November 2009)
i bought it even tho i cant play it on my Wii until 10th of December when i get home, cant wait
kopstudent89 (on 27 November 2009)
Well UK sales werent even 100k, so i presumed it was a bit overtraced in EU. i expect similar numbers next week though
Arfen (on 27 November 2009)
I believe tehre was a notice in this site saying this game made around 400k in Europe 1st week and now not even 300 K???????
Gintoki (on 27 November 2009)
At last I got mine

Batman...WTF? (on 26 November 2009)
Will get it soon. Hopefully my birthday.
marcianito (on 26 November 2009)
this game did fantastic, it's gonna have ''mario kart'' legs
SaviorX (on 26 November 2009)
Did 10% better than I expected in Americas. Looking at it sit atop the Americas chart was weird though.

Should get used to seeing it there.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 26 November 2009)
Fantastic opening in the US, but lower than I had hoped. Still, great opening, and will without a doubt have great legs as well.
guiduc (on 26 November 2009)
Probably in terms of sales? Mario Kart is a monster!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 26 November 2009)
Ugh. There was a holiday shopping thing on the news today and this game was refered to as "the new Mario Kart game" >_>
noname2200 (on 26 November 2009)
*Ahem*

HAHA Bomba Game, Wii iz d00med!
ash3336 (on 25 November 2009)
I hate it when this happens, The first week sales are so unbalanced that way. Anyways, I will just total up the sales as it get the big launch in Others.
nordlead (on 25 November 2009)
@zaMy

It is quite common for a game in PAL territories to launch across multiple weeks. As guiduc pointed out, only Australia sales are posted and you can expect a massive increase in others next week.
guiduc (on 25 November 2009)
No it's only first week in Australia.
Smeags (on 25 November 2009)
Just played Free For All and Coin Battle... SO much fun.

I love you Mario.
zaMy (on 25 November 2009)
dam what happened?
is mario already dead in Europe?
rastari (on 25 November 2009)
awesome game, Can't wait to see how this sells over the holidays.
nordlead (on 25 November 2009)
I already clocked over 30 hours on this game.
uno (on 24 November 2009)
just got my copy from Amazon. SUPER STOKED!!
Nintendogamer (on 24 November 2009)
This sales will explode in Japan since they love 2D Mario sidescrolling games, and will really help Wii in hardware sales!
Siko1989 (on 24 November 2009)
thats fantastic sales in australia
--OkeyDokey-- (on 24 November 2009)
Pokemon Platinum also came out in Australia before the rest of Others and debuted at 34k. It sold 280k the next week.

So, around the same for this game?
supermario128 (on 23 November 2009)
2 million week one. ;-)
primogen18 (on 23 November 2009)
me too chalkblock... =/

VivaLaWiida (on 23 November 2009)
This game is so freakin awesome. Those who don't buy it are not worth owning a Wii! :-P

I really want this game, too bad I'm broke.
I like Bacon (on 22 November 2009)
Yes it is Australia.

12th: Australia
15th: America
20th: Europe
Nintendogamer (on 22 November 2009)
That 28,441 is Australia I hope. Should be over 400,000 in Europe next week.
Khuutra (on 22 November 2009)
You have disappointed me again, Others!

Nah I'm just kidding

I'm sure Week 2 will be fine
guiduc (on 21 November 2009)
@Majin-Tenshinhan

Actually I found the game more exciting with 3 players. I would love to play with 4 players, though...

@Son1x
yes they changed many things.
Nintendogamer (on 21 November 2009)
@Playstationgamer

Get the black one that's curently Ģ149.99 of GAME.co.uk but you have only this weekend to get it.
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 21 November 2009)
Cleared this with a buddy the other day. 4-player is fun in a hectic, chaotic way - But 2-player is where it's really at, honestly. Playing levels with just one friend is unbelievably fun and makes me wonder why they never did a 2-player Mario-game before.
PlaystaionGamer (on 20 November 2009)
I REALLY WANT THIS! im going to have to buy a Wii
Son1x (on 20 November 2009)
Is it just me are the sales and a lot of comments gone?
guiduc (on 18 November 2009)
Thanks VG for this great review. This game really deserves it.
AtomSpyTroy (on 18 November 2009)
This game is incredible! Blows the DS one away and I loved the DS one! :) It's great to play in multiplayer AND alone!
Vas-y (on 18 November 2009)
I still have to figure out where I'll put the tin.
guiduc (on 18 November 2009)
It's all way better than NSMB DS. It's, for me, a huge step forward in terms of PERFECT multiplayer experience and combination of all the elements that makes the serie so popular.
SmokedHostage (on 17 November 2009)
My new favorite Wii game this year.
supermario128 (on 17 November 2009)
Yes, a lot better than the DS version.....
MasterZack (on 17 November 2009)
Im going for uuuuuuuuuuu
richardhutnik (on 17 November 2009)
Better than SMB for the DS? I thought SMB for the DS is real good. Cool.
AtomSpyTroy (on 17 November 2009)
This game is incredible.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 17 November 2009)
I really do like this game. It has that magic that NSMB DS was lacking.
c0rd (on 16 November 2009)
Oo, forgot to add the game.

Can't wait to play the game, NSMB Wii all weekend...
mortono (on 16 November 2009)
2 million first week, no?
supermario128 (on 16 November 2009)
I just played the final level again. It's epic. ;-)

Anybody play the world 9 courses yet?
PlaystaionGamer (on 16 November 2009)
when i get a Wii this will eb the first game i buy!!! well maybe Mario Kart but this will defo be in the top 2! lol

Best Platformer in a long long time. I even had my wife, mom and dad all playing with me.

MaxwellGT2000 (on 16 November 2009)
Played and beaten on the multiplayer before it even came out, now playing singleplayer and it is indeed worth it.
The Ghost of RubangB (on 16 November 2009)
Man there's so much crazy awesome stuff going on in every level! There's never any room to just walk around and mess up some Goombas. I'm always riding on giant spinning blocks and sand geysers, and sliding around on my belly, and freezing guys in the sky to climb to secrets all over the place. Crazy stuff! It's beautiful!!!!!
ECC (on 16 November 2009)
im in love with this game and havent played anything but single player. ill play multi soon.
supermario128 (on 15 November 2009)
Yes, the game is amazing; especially with others playing. Me and my two bros beat it in about 5 hours. Some levels are very frustrating with others because they get in your way so I made them get in their bubbles. lol Now to go back and collect everything.

Everyone need to buy this game!
Smeags (on 15 November 2009)
Just came in to say that this game is amazing. 4 players... my goodness. Now if you'll excuse me...
guiduc (on 15 November 2009)
It's a really awesome game! What a spectacular experience with 3 other people! Thank you for all, Nintendo.
puffy (on 15 November 2009)
Preorders at 520k in NA, good for around 800k first week which means NSMBWii is on track for a 2.2 million first week.

I got it on the first day and played it for about an hour. It is good my friends, very good. The sales will be huge. Glad I'm on board.
SuperAdrianK (on 15 November 2009)
Awsome!!!! never had so much fun as this!!! I believe is the best 2-d mario in my humble opinion!!!
Khuutra (on 15 November 2009)
Time to play this with the wife.
Nintendogamer (on 15 November 2009)
Wii sales should be over 520,000 this week taking wii over the 57 million mark thanks to this game.
puffy (on 15 November 2009)
2.2 Million worldwide first week, still my prediction, I think it'll need 750k in Americas to reach that.. Will have to wait a few weeks for Japan's numbers though..
puffy (on 15 November 2009)
It was released. I had it for two days and I got it on release.
supermario128 (on 15 November 2009)
You can add it now. (y)
Fab_GS (on 14 November 2009)
@puffy
Because it wasn't released yet.
puffy (on 14 November 2009)
Why can't I add this game?
Buzzi (on 14 November 2009)
This game has a shot at 1 million in Americas, but the game will be out for just one day in Others in its first week. I would say in 2 weeks this will be at 3m : 1.3 NA, 0.9 JP, 0.8 Others...but at the end of the year will be over 6 millions surely, this is Wii game of the year!
chris_wing (on 13 November 2009)
Wow, what a bomb, not a single sale, lolhaha.




jk
supermario128 (on 13 November 2009)
This game will be huge, and you are crazy to think other wise. ;-)
haxxiy (on 13 November 2009)
@ supermario128 - alright, I'll withstand your laugh with no proper answer since I think exactly the same thing about your predictions and the games you obviously prefer to play :)
supermario128 (on 12 November 2009)
I wish it had been Saturday, would have been more convenient for me. Oh well. 3 Days!!!!!
madskillz (on 12 November 2009)
The red case is sick. I can't believe they are releasing it on a SUNDAY!
wick (on 12 November 2009)
I'm very disappointed with the lack of a classic controller option but after a few hours playing I have to say it's great fun. Takes me back to Christmas morning when I played SMW on my SNES all those years ago.
supermario128 (on 11 November 2009)
Front loaded. Hahahahahahahaha.
Soriku (on 11 November 2009)
Mario game? Frontloaded? wat. And it's 2D to boot which means even bigger legs.
haxxiy (on 11 November 2009)
I predict this game to be a rather frontloaded Wii title to the likes of SSBB.
supermario128 (on 11 November 2009)
How dare you post something like that... >_>
madskillz (on 11 November 2009)
Just got the game today - but MW2 is so taking up my time ;-)
supermario128 (on 10 November 2009)
SMW just barely beats SMB3. ;-)

5 more days!
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 10 November 2009)
Man, I'm getting so hyped for this now. I can't believe how much I want it! Only 1― week left...
killeryoshis (on 09 November 2009)
@masterzack

Do you want me to take you out of my friend's list for spreading lies!?!? :-P
wick (on 09 November 2009)
Only 3 days till I get my hands on it. Might go play SMW to prepare.
Wii_Master (on 08 November 2009)
OMG thats the only thing i can say about this fucking awesome game...it pwns all video games in history and current!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MasterZack (on 08 November 2009)
@killeryoshi

SMB3 is better
killeryoshis (on 08 November 2009)
SMW>All 2-D mario games. redinker picked the right game I hope it surprasses it.:-D
RedInker (on 08 November 2009)
Can't wait for this game. I've got the Missus getting me this for Christmas. I've even played through Super Mario World on the SNES to prepare me for the awesomeness of this game.
supermario128 (on 08 November 2009)
It's hard not to watch any videos on it, but I don't want to ruin my experience with the game.
Buzzi (on 07 November 2009)
It will sell great during holidays, it probably needs a bundle to sell 11m in 1 year, but 8 millions is pretty sure...I would say near 15m LTD.
guiduc (on 06 November 2009)
Go to see the website at mariobroswii.com

It's... awesome. AND THERE'S A WORLD 9.
supermario128 (on 05 November 2009)
So 1 under 11 million. Haha.

(I get why you did that)
RCTjunkie (on 05 November 2009)
I hope it sells great! Deserves 10,999,999 copies WW in its first year!
supermario128 (on 04 November 2009)
Way too low....... ;-)
W4n9Le (on 03 November 2009)
2m japan
4m usa
4m pal
spurgeonryan (on 30 October 2009)
I would say that will be close, but looking at galaxy and smash bros. I would say closer to 10 million. if it sells forever like gal and smash then 10.5 mill. since it is the best of both games ..sorta
supermario128 (on 29 October 2009)
Ha-ha, nice! (y)

Everyone needs to get this game.
vonboysp (on 27 October 2009)
i've convinced on of the student workers in the swamp at my college (basically just a place to play pool, videogames together, or just to hang out) to pick up this game.

fun times to be had at college again :D
Haste262 (on 26 October 2009)
1.32m 1st week.
supermario128 (on 26 October 2009)
Red box to make it special. Why not!

And your sales predictions are way too low. :-P
haxxiy (on 26 October 2009)
I predict 14m lifetime sales.

2m Japan
7m USA
5m Europe and Others
PlaystaionGamer (on 26 October 2009)
lol who keeps spamming this?
should be good though! btw why has this got a red box?
kopstudent89 (on 24 October 2009)
CANT WAIT!
PullusPardus (on 24 October 2009)
why is it in a red box? im i missing on an announcement?
Arius Dion (on 23 October 2009)
This will have Mario Kart Wii like sales.
supermario128 (on 22 October 2009)
Only about 3 more weeks! ;-)
zzyoshiman (on 21 October 2009)
@ smokedhostage
surpass smb3 on sales? maybe
Roflinator (on 21 October 2009)
@TheConduit: While I agree with you that this year has been lackluster from 1st party... But what the hell? Mario Party is not an AAA title, since when did people decided it was that good of a series? Also, Zelda is in its concept stage, don't expect it to be out til a year or 2.

And...seriously? Eternal Darkness? Wasn't it that one IP that only had one game and that was only in the GC era? Geez, high expectations much?
TheConduit (on 21 October 2009)
Probable surpass 2 million on release day.

Its kind off disappointing that this is the only AAA game from Nintendo for 2009.
Trilogy was fun but old, Punch out was niche and just short of great and Wii fit Plus is WII FIT PLUS.

Where's Fire Emblem, Zelda, Mario Party, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, Kirby and eternal Darkness.
--OkeyDokey-- (on 21 October 2009)
The red box is tempting me.
SaviorX (on 20 October 2009)
Guaranteed 750k 1st week in Americas.
RPG (on 19 October 2009)
Simply cannot wait for this game, just behind FFXIII as my most anticipated game os 2009.

It's going to make a lot of monies of that there is no doubt!
SmokedHostage (on 19 October 2009)
My guess. 8 million first fiscal year.

14 million after two fiscal years.

19 million after three fiscal years.
mortono (on 18 October 2009)
Is anybody else so excited about this that they've gone back and played all the old 2d games? I have.

15-20 mil at least!
supermario128 (on 18 October 2009)
Can't wait!
SaviorX (on 18 October 2009)
After 18 months, I say this game will have 19 million sold.
Buzzi (on 18 October 2009)
Today on tv during the tv news one news item was about this! There was also Miyamoto interviewed and the story of Mario!
kopstudent89 (on 18 October 2009)
2D comeback!!!
adam84 (on 16 October 2009)
15 mil i think. yey
puffy (on 16 October 2009)
It'll sell 22 million - my prediction
miz1q2w3e (on 15 October 2009)
The scans in this thread made me so excited i wanted to shout!

NeoGohan (on 15 October 2009)
All i need now is a "New Donkey Kong Country Wii"
TopCat8 (on 14 October 2009)
I'm so happy to hear that this game will have a harder difficulty than the DS version. My favorite platformers were always the DKC games because they were so challenging (at least to me).
Smeags (on 14 October 2009)
Ahhh! Ludwig von Koopa, in 3D Glory. This is gonna be great!
adam84 (on 10 October 2009)
this is going to be a monster, the hype seems to increase day by day. does anybody know if the mario controllers will be available when its out? they look sweeeeeet
Intendo21 (on 09 October 2009)
I have a strange feeling this will flop. Probably not though.
BoneArk (on 09 October 2009)
I heard this game is very difficult and its like playing Super Mario 3. I'll track it for now. =)
Nintendogamer (on 09 October 2009)
What if it was so hard that it was impossible? What if Mario could only have one life and say you reach world 7 and you died, you have to start all over again from world 1 lol
supermario128 (on 08 October 2009)
Yes, it will be much harder, which makes me happy. :-)
Buzzi (on 08 October 2009)
There's a rumor that this game is really difficult...i hope that!
DxLink (on 05 October 2009)
My bet is that this game will reach 20 million sold copies or more.

I will buy this, this will be the game of the year
adam84 (on 01 October 2009)
over 1 mill in first week i think, can't wait for this
GranTurismoHelperMax (on 01 October 2009)
will sell like hotcakes, just like mkwii did
kopstudent89 (on 29 September 2009)
And Excitebots is number 6 :P:P

500k first week japan
500k NA
200k EU

12-15 mil LT
Green Penguin (on 26 September 2009)
I predict 23 million lifetime.
killeryoshis (on 26 September 2009)
100 million lifetime
ioi (on 26 September 2009)
18m lifetime
oliist (on 26 September 2009)
12,951,418 lifetime
Mark my words. ;-)
Vas-y (on 26 September 2009)
Wow, this game is fun! I played it yesterday at Game-City in Vienna and it stunned me. I will definitely pick this up on day one :).
adam84 (on 26 September 2009)
13 mil
MasterZack (on 25 September 2009)
10 mil lifetime!!
Nintendogamer (on 25 September 2009)
@puffy

That's possible considering over 19 million people have bought new super mario bros DS. It will surpass 5 million before the year ends for sure.
puffy (on 25 September 2009)
22 Million lifetime, you heard it here first ;)
adam84 (on 25 September 2009)
8 mil i think
supermario128 (on 24 September 2009)
I'm going to say 14+ million total sales.
kopstudent89 (on 24 September 2009)
If you're joking, well played
If you're not joking, then don't think I'm adding u to my friend's list
SnowFlow (on 24 September 2009)
Flop? Looked at it's counterpart's sales on DS, this should sell at least 10m in a few years.
Nintendogamer (on 24 September 2009)
He better be joking because this game will sell over 10.3 millon soon.
scottie (on 24 September 2009)
Being as Riot of the Blood's favourite games list starts with Mario, I'm gonna say he's joking
Riot Of The Blood (on 23 September 2009)
Yeah,

This game will flop. It might crawl it's way up to 1m, but no more than that.
kopstudent89 (on 23 September 2009)
yeah flop
it will... flop?
its gona be at abt 500k first week in NA alone, not to mention mario=legs... and u say its gna flop?
Riot Of The Blood (on 22 September 2009)
This game is going to flop.
RPG (on 21 September 2009)
Cannot wait for this game. Nintendo first party is the reason I got a Wii and simply put this game looks amazing.

12 million LTD at worst :O
SmokedHostage (on 20 September 2009)
I like the new boxart.
drinkvault (on 16 September 2009)
Can't wait for this!
PlaystaionGamer (on 15 September 2009)
looking to be a BIG game this cristmas! il try play it at my mates when he gets it!
Skorpion (on 15 September 2009)
I want online so bad, that would make this a must have for me. Without it, I'm in no hurry, sadly I have no faith in nintendo wifi these days.
wiilicious (on 13 September 2009)
This game need online, so we can play with friend and family.They did'nt included it in Punch-out so I don't think it will be in this game etheir.
Batman...WTF? (on 12 September 2009)
:D
TheConduit (on 10 September 2009)
Pick this up day one
Buzzi (on 09 September 2009)
Nintendo's fall conference is right in time to unveil a secret about this, if there's one (or more).
Nintendogamer (on 09 September 2009)
This is on the top of my list for Christmas.
a3hmax (on 08 September 2009)
Just need online to be perfect.
ECC (on 08 September 2009)
i want this NOW!!!!!
Roflinator (on 08 September 2009)
@OmegaRulalv3:

Yoshis and Koopa Kids. There's your answer!
OmegaRugalv3 (on 08 September 2009)
Should be outstanding. I hope it plays more like Mario Bros 3 and World than Mario Bros 1 like NSMB DS did.

That would be sweet.
kopstudent89 (on 08 September 2009)
This game isnt hyped enough, Come ON!
haxxiy (on 19 August 2009)
Ha, I will love this game :D
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 14 August 2009)
I seriously can't wait, this game is going to be the bees knees. Wow.

Wii_Master (on 10 July 2009)
can't wait
VTnev27 (on 30 June 2009)
@Skorpion
Slim, Miyamoto has said that they are pushing the wii too hard with just local multiplayer. Maybe they're keeping somethings hidden...
Skorpion (on 25 June 2009)
I wonder what the chances are of online multiplayer.
supermario128 (on 21 June 2009)
This will be most like Super Mario World. :-)
locos85 (on 19 June 2009)
I will buy a Wii just for this game :)
RCTjunkie (on 17 June 2009)
I could care less what Super Mario(s) they use to inspire this. I'm already sold with 4-player multiplayer.
killeryoshis (on 13 June 2009)
I hope this gmae combines the elemants fron Super mario bros 3 and and map design like super mario world and the creative level design in Super mario world and longer!
killeryoshis (on 10 June 2009)
This game better not suck like Hotal Mario :-D
here_wii_go (on 09 June 2009)
i think 8 million, hope a great one player mode !
supermario128 (on 07 June 2009)
Much higher than that. :-P
SmokedHostage (on 07 June 2009)
My guess is 10-12 million.
Paul (on 04 June 2009)
I was just being conservative to not rial rival fanboys.
supermario128 (on 04 June 2009)
I agree, maybe even 30 million.
ioi (on 04 June 2009)
10m? This will hit 20m with ease...
Paul (on 03 June 2009)
It will probably do great in Japan. Could hit 10 million if japanese sales are good.
SaviorX (on 03 June 2009)
This will sell gangbusters.
SJGohan3972 (on 02 June 2009)
do want, will have 2009
supermario128 (on 02 June 2009)
CAN'T WAIT! :-)
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 02 June 2009)
This will probably be the best multiplayer experience of 2009.
oliist (on 02 June 2009)
It's a me. :-D
