Super Mario Odyssey Sells 2 Million Copies in 3 Days

Level Games  Nintendo

The biggest contributor to Nintendo's newfound success is its new gaming console, the Nintendo Switch.

Super Mario Odyssey has sold-through 2 million copies since launching four days ago on October 27. Busy gamers instantly saw the appeal of its "hybrid" nature, earning it a boatload of hype prior to its launch in March. As noted by Kimishima in the presentation, one of Nintendo's main goals is expanding into games for smart devices (phones and tablets), and Super Mario Run helped quite a bit with that endeavor.

The band then segued into the Living Things track "Roads Untraveled", giving that song its live debut. The band played October 27th at the Hollywood Bowl , a sold out show.

Last year, Nintendo introduced the NES Classic, a miniature version of the company's original console that came loaded with 30 games. One of the slides included in the briefing PDF shows that the company has already sold over two million copies of the game. The game also managed to score many awards from media outlets at various tradeshows like E3 and Gamescom this year as well, helping fans perceptions of the title as well. What's more, the game was released with Holiday 2017 in mind, where Nintendo's sales typically are highest and we haven't even hit the season yet. However, after January rolls around, don't be surprised if Odyssey moves its way up the list.

For now, Super Mario Odyssey offers a ton of enjoyable gameplay, and hours' worth of secrets to hunt down. While many would argue that limited lives added a sense of challenge, Nintendo felt that this system didn't make as much sense as it has in the past due to the broad, exploration-focused gameplay rather than tight and focused levels found in previous games. It would be no surprise at all to see the number of Super Mario Odyssey sales to reach, if not exceed the number of Nintendo Switches out there, due to the still existing supply issues of Nintendo Switches staying on shelves.
