NSMB Wii The Best Selling Console Game Since Super Mario Bros In Japan

Posted July 14, 2010 by Megaton News in Nintendo

With the recent release of updated Famistu Japanese LTD sales numbers we can see the New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the best selling home console game since the original Super Mario Bros. on the NES. Now it’s still quite a ways away from topping the NES 6.81 million selling classic, but it does have the honor of beating the much beloved Super Mario Bros 3 for second best selling console game ever in Japan.
