Seems like this was discontinued at
retail too soon. Nintendo never produced
additional shipment -- the lack of
distribution 2012 onwards is what's
kept it from selling better.

So if this sold 3.42m in one
And Wii games still sold
fairly well in 2012/2013 (some
shouldn't this be way above the
3.80 mark?

I gotta agree with what's already been
discussed here; I think that SS is above
the 4m mark by now. It's just such a
shame that Nintendo hasn't released
more sales figure for this game! How
come? Are they too embarrassed?
S.Peelman (on 17 October 2014)
Exactly, that's what I've
been saying for years now. No way this
game is this 'low'.

It's too bad
Nintendo never released sales figures
beyond that 3.42m figure in it's first
month. I'm positive this game in
reality is comfortably above 4m,
especially since we know there were
still multiple shipments later on in
it's life (first with and later without
the audio-CD and the last one having
different box-art).

Correct me if I'm wrong but according
to Wikipedia this game sold 3.42 million
copies in a month. And here it shows the
game only sold 3.77 lifetime...

Which means that 3 years passed and
all the game was able to sell was...
0.35 units. Either this game is
undertracked or everyone really hated
this game...
