The Super Mario series as a whole also surpasses 310 million, which is astonishing.
Super Mario Maker has been out less than three weeks, but has already shifted over 1 million copies worldwide, according to Nintendo’s internal sales figures.
These rapid Super Mario Maker sales has also thrown up some other interesting statistics: Super Mario Maker amateur designers have created more than 2.2 million levels, and the sum of all levels played is over 75 million. That either means we’re all very happy with our own levels, or the level of community sharing of Super Mario Maker creations has gone through the roof.
“For Mario fans around the world, including myself, Super Mario Maker was a dream 30 years in the making. The game has captured and unlocked the imaginations of gaming fans of all ages and brought their dedication to Nintendo to a whole new level.” – Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America
For a console that was originally thought to be under-performing commercially, the fact that in-house titles like Super Mario Maker and Splatoon shot to a million sales within a matter of weeks in this year alone must be a real boost for the corporation, as work progresses apace on the super-secretive Nintendo NX console.
