Hit: Super Mario 3D All-Stars sells over 200K physical copies in Japan

3D All-Stars

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

Here’s a look at the top ten software sales in Japan for the week from September 14 to September 20:

1. [NSW] Super Mario 3D All-Stars – 210,136 / NEW
2. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure – 48,826 / 1,576,270
3. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 32,097 / 5,724,253
4. [PS4] eFootball PES 2021 – 26,215 / NEW
5. [NSW] Pro Yakyuu Famista 2020 – 15,129 / NEW
6. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 13,094 / 3,170,755
7. [NSW] Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics – 9,572 / 381,612
8. [NSW] Azur Lane: Crosswave – 7,413 / NEW
9. [NSW] Pokemon Sword/Shield – 6,887 / 3,738,336
10. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 6,288 / 3,83,717

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!

Enthusiasts, are you surprised Super Mario 3D All-Stars is selling so well? Let us know your thoughts on the remasters in the comment section below.
