Super Mario Odyssey Sells 2 Million Copies in Just Three Days

Luckily for Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild turned out to be a fantastic title, and early on it even sold more copies than the console itself. Well, it seems that Nintendo has managed to move quite the number of units regarding Super Mario Odyssey, wherein the latest financial briefing reveals over 2 Million copies have been purchased within three day's time.

Super Mario Odyssey is available now for Nintendo Switch. Unlike the more linear level design of Super Mario Galaxy, Odyssey hearkens back to Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine with its many sprawling, sandbox-style Kingdoms, each of which houses a myriad of Power Moons and other collectibles to find. These were Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes. None of this has been lost on Nintendo.

"We estimate that the global sellthrough of Super Mario Odyssey has already exceeded two million units in just its first three days".

The company also plans to release more updates and improvements for the mobile title, so it certainly sounds like Nintendo does not plan to shift away from Super Mario Run anytime soon.

According to Nintendo's six month briefing for the fiscal year (a period that began in March), the game's sales have been tremendous. Looking ahead, several upcoming games will strengthen the Switch's lineup, including Doom, Skyrim, and several Resident Evil titles, to name just a few.
