Super Mario 3D All-Stars launched on September 18. As it turns out, the collection is a fun time, lack of extra content notwithstanding. But how is the compendium doing sales-wise? If you look to Japan, it’s performing quite well. As in, the trilogy of platformers has already sold over 200,000 copies.
The numbers for Super Mario 3D All-Stars don’t include digital sales, mind you

It looks like everyone’s favorite plumber is as popular as ever. I bet the compilation is selling more due to its limited availability.
Nintendo is wise to make an expanded Super Mario 3D World available next year, complete with an expansion. If I were them, I’d continue the Mario hype train by re-releasing Super Mario Galaxy 2 at some point and starting development on Super Mario Odyssey 2. The money would practically print itself!
