Super Mario Odyssey Sets Huge Sales Numbers In Just Three Days

Super Mario Odyssey Sets Huge Sales Numbers In Just Three Days

Super Mario Run has reached a whopping 200 million downloads worldwide since its debut last December. The company's latest earnings report corroborates this, stating that despite the game's impressive number of downloads, it just hasn't made the kind of money the company had been hoping for.

It's been several years since we've seen an open-world exploratory Mario game (though Super Mario 3D Land and 3D World weren't too shabby at all), but Super Mario Odyssey happily fills that void with hours of blissful fun. Since the game's release on October 27, it's already managed to sell two million copies.

While The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are now the two best-selling Switch games with 4.7 million units and 4.42 million units sold respectively, Super Mario Odyessys sales are still ridiculously impressive, hitting almost have of the two best selling game's sales in a couple of days - this means that Super Mario Odyessy could very likely become the leading title of the Hybrid Console. Even though the game was downloaded 200 million times, Nintendo said that the game has "not yet reached an acceptable profit point". Super Mario Odyssey has been one of the most anticipated games for the Switch. Even though both mobile games are available as free downloads, Super Mario Run forces you to cough up $9.99 to unlock the full game. Super Mario Odyssey is also likely to bolster Switch sales, just as Zelda did in the early going.

PM flags off 'Run for Unity', slams Cong for ignoring Patel
He flagged off the Run for Unity in Jammu and said that the run was for re-discovering Patels legacy to unite the country.

Our aim is for this application to be the definitive Mario application for smart devices. "We are working to ensure that these consumers are able to get hardware, moving forward".

The company also plans to release more updates and improvements for the mobile title, so it certainly sounds like Nintendo does not plan to shift away from Super Mario Run anytime soon.
