This could reach 10M if it drops around 45%. The drop rates keep getting smaller and smaller, so it has 10M in the bag.

Hopefully VGC will update these sales soon. If Nintendo announced 9 million with digital at the beginning of the year it should definitely be above 9 million in retail sales by now.

Don't forget, with digital sales and "bundled with game pre-loaded" taken into account combined with these physical sales, this game is likely higher than 9 million.

This week was proof of how the NSMB-series has the most stable attach-ratio of everything. 3DS sales shoot up, NSMB2's sales shoot up as well and reenters the top 10. Attach-ratio will remain the same indefinitely; this game will probably end up the #2 best selling 3DS game at the end of the generation, behind Mario Kart 7.

I don't know why you complain so much, I loved the game, it's an amazing platformer, really enjoyable. The only bad thing I find is the bad use of 3D, everything else, just perfect. Great game!

The funny thing is, this isn't that bad a game. The graphics are pretty, the level design is great, and the gameplay is as good as ever. Plus, the coin addition is a great idea. It just lacks CREATIVITY. Only one stage really makes use of the 3D effect, levels have a "best" way to go through them to collect coins regardless of power ups, there aren't any crazy gimmick stages save for the running cannon ones... the whole game is lacking in flavor. Like great steak but without seasoning.

As of now its 3.72 It will pass 4 mil in two weeks at this rate and be around 4.3-4.5mil by years end!!! Lifetime this game will pass 10mil but i dont think this game be as successful as its prequel on the ds!
Might even pass 15mil because it does have the legs!!!

Yeah will probably start to overtake zelda in the next couple of weeks or so. Its going to be interesting to see how much this finishes on by the end of the year. To be honest its not sold quite as well as i thought it was going to so far, even though its going to have trmendous legs in the long run. Im going to say 5.5-6 million by the years end although i hope it ends up being a bit higher.

Just completed this. Took me 16 hours to finish all the worlds, including the secret mushroom, flower and star worlds, as well as getting the three dragon coins on each level. I also purchased the pack of three coin rush level for 6. Honestly its not worth that much but the first of the three packs make getting to the million coin mark so much easier. Very happybwith the game itself. Good graphics, excellent level design and just a whole heap of fun to play.

no one sets out to dislike a game.... apart from you know people like GGC94 down there with his spam of "fuck nintendo" messages :D it's great to see this flying towards 2million it's really great to have such a good 2d mario next to 3d land on the 3ds's line up. Kinda a bit old now the stuff about mario games being rehashes because they feature mario as the main protagonist of the series, I think games like fifa 2013 get less stick for it and the 2013 in the name isn't even referring to the year anymore...

acdcste - I agree. Yes, the game is really not original at all, other than the new gold-related stuff, but the level design is fantastic. When it comes to Platformers, nothing is more important than level design. Anyone that thinks the level design is poor must be really set out to dislike the game.

I honestly dont know how anybody could call this game atrocious but everybody is entitled to their opinion. I have to disagree with you however. Granted, its not all that different from the ds game, but its still an awesome platformer. I would say 3d land is better, but not by much.

@acdcste one click on the guys profile and you'll see why he is upset that this sold 3 times more than the highest selling vita game within a month of it's launch, probably even more upset knowing that you are right about how mario goes on to sell for years, considering we still see mario kart DS and NSMB in the top 100.

People who are saying the sales are poor clearly have little to no understanding of the mechanics of mario title sales life. They dont do gangbusters in the first week like ps3 and 360 marquee titles, however, it will still be charting in five years. So to people who are panicking over the numbers i say this, calm down alll will be fine!

VERY disappointing opening numbers.....

300k-400k would have been the sweet spot. I don't really see this title having the ridiculously strong legs of the other two titles either (higher percent drops each weeks than other two titles seems likely). We'll see though. It's too early to tell whether the title will be a relative disappointment.

It's a bit sad that Kingdom hearts sold more in its first week. My Streetpass encounters seem to reflect this too. The majority of the Miis I've met have had KH3D as their last played titles in the last 3 weeks or so. None of the Miis I've met so far have had NSMB2 at all.....

It's not like this is a big game or anything.... vgchartz focusing more on getting sales figures and box art for the Zelda clone that came out on the 360+ps3 .... priority's and how this site could use some at times. but yeah, picked up a copy of this and have to say, absolutely amazing game mario still keeping up the pace nicely, and I see so many reviews cutting themselves about the overworld theme.... it's so good even the Koopas and goombas stop to dance to it... how can you not like that theme seriously. It's about as addictive as buying Mario games for a Nintendo system. :D
