It's probably sold more in the USA than even VGChartz states according to this article on the Majesco website all the way back in January.

January 30, 2008

Cooking Mama franchise has reached sales of 1.6 million units in the United States.
Franchise titles include: the original Cooking Mama game for Nintendo DS that launched in September 2006 and has sold more than 1 million units.

If it sold a million in Japan, then the numbers are a tad bit off.

Interview with Keiji Fujita of Taito


[b]How important are franchises like Cooking Mama to Taito? It seems like the biggest hit Taito has had in a while, even though it's a very small game.

KF: Exactly. Actually, Cooking Mama was awarded as IGN's Best of E3 last year, and 700,000 copies have been sold already in the U.S. market, with another 500,000 copies in Europe.


How much in Japan?

KF: Almost a million, actually. It's kind of a blockbuster game for us, after more than ten years of silence. We used to have blockbuster games in Japan, but we didn't launch this game... have you ever heard of Let's Go By Train?[/b]

Unbelievable that this has done 2 million.

Europe really does love causal style games it seems.

Oh those crazy cooking Europeans. Once Majesco releases "drive through Mama" they'll have an NA smash hit.

And Ehsteve... give it up.

I can't believe this was a game.....

I lose my faith in DS games now.

There is no way this has sold 511,000 in the US alone by Aug 18 2007. Majesco just announced on Aug 18/2007 that they had SHIPPED 500,000 WORLDWIDE.
