New Super Mario Bros Japanese Sales – In Comparison to the rest of Mario’s adventures

1 min read


You know you are slightly addicted to the Mario series when you spend an inordinate amount of time creating an awesome bar chart that maps the sales of his latest adventure against all the rest of them.

But that is exactly what Eddz Walsh has done with the image above.

This is week 4 of the Japanese sales charts and we can see that New Super Mario Bros Wii is now the 8th highest selling Mario game ever in the land of the rising sun and seeing that it has only been on sale for 4 weeks you can expect it to keep on climbing and at least make it into 6th spot before the end of January.

What surprises me the most however is that Super Mario Galaxy only made it up to 13th and that is easily my favourite Mario title of all time.
