Nintendo has announced that the latest entry in the Super Mario Bros. series, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, has sold over 4.3 million units during its first two weeks of launch, making it the fast-selling title in the franchise.
You can view Nintendo’s full statement on the matter below:
Super Mario Bros. Wonder, which was released worldwide on October 20, achieved global cumulative sales of 4.3 million units within the first two weeks. This makes it the fastest-selling* Super Mario related title.
- Super Mario related titles also tend to sell consistently over a long period of time. We anticipate this title will be an appealing choice for
consumers during the upcoming holiday season and will continue to sell next year onwards as well.
- Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the first entirely new entry in the sidescrolling Super Mario series in about 11 years.
- This title provides surprising new 2D Mario experiences, and we believe that this, in conjunction with global excitement from The Super Mario Bros. Movie, resulted in the large sales volume.
*Limited to titles released for Wii and Nintendo DS onwards, when software sell-through data collection began.

In Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Prince Florian invited Mario and his friends to the Flower Kingdom. However, when Bowser attacks and comes into contact with the Wonder Flower, he merges with the prince’s castle. Of course, the heroes set off on a quest to halt Bowser’s ambitions.
The game has six worlds that circle the petal isles, with a total of 7 areas to explore. There will be several types of environments throughout the levels, such as caves, deserts, and grasslands.
Luigi, Peach, Daisy, two Toads, and Toadette are also playable alongside Mario, and they all control the same. The Yoshi and Nabbit won’t take damage, though, so they’re for beginners. But they can still lose lives if they fall into a pit.
Players can experience stages with new power-ups, badges, and the Wonder Flower that significantly alters the layout of the environment. Four-player local play will also be featured alongside indirect online player interaction.
Super Mario Bros. Wonder is available for Nintendo Switch.
