Super Mario Bros. Wonder Sells 1 Million Physical Units in Japan

Super Mario Bros. Wonder Sells 1 Million Physical Units in Japan

The Japanese outlet Famitsu has announced that the latest mainline entry in the Mario franchise, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, has sold over one million physical units in Japan alone.

This feat is only bolstered by the fact that Super Mario Bros. Wonder has been previously confirmed to have sold over 4.3 million units worldwide across its first two weeks of launch, also making it the fastest-ever selling Super Mario game ever made. It’s fair to assume this outing will continue to excel, perhaps even reaching 10 million sooner rather than later.

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.
