Media Create Sales Reveal Mild Reception for Super Mario 3D World on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The launch of Super Mario 3D World has performed well in Japan, but didn't do much to drive sales of the hardware itself.

In the latest Media Create sales figures, there were a fair few titles on Nintendo consoles in the top ten. Super Mario 3D World came in second place with 99,588 units sold, coming second to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII on PS3.

Also in the top ten were One Piece: Unlimited World R, Pokemon X and Y, Aikatsu! 2-ri no My Princess and Monster Hunter 4.

Pokémon X and Y also celebrated hitting the three million mark in Japan so far, with Monster Hunter 4 creeping in closely behind it.

The Nintendo 3DS was still in pole position during the week, bringing in 63,709 sales for the XL and 20,797 for the original 3DS. The Wii U only saw a marginal shift at 21,002 units.

Can Nintendo drive further Wii U sales with Super Mario 3D World in Japan?

Don't understand how that's possible. This has to be the BEST Mario game since Galaxy if not better!
