@t3mporary It most likely has most to do
with the significant drop in sales in
Japan. From 200k to about only 20k for
2/3 of the year.

Nintendo says 4.88m as of september

Probably a bit overtracked then
here on VGC considering digital. Quite
the drop from the 32m of NSMBWii. Though
a similar thing happened from the
original SMB to SMB2.

are those 2015 sales really? Why did
people stop buying this game suddenly?

Still definitely has a chance of

This holiday will probably help it
get through a bulk of the 200k and then
i twill leg it out next year to 5m
