Our favorite plumber, Mario, can add another notch his belt this week. New Super Mario Brothers Wii became the fastest single platform game to reach fifteen million copies sold. The previous record holder, Wii Sports Resort, took forty weeks to reach this landmark whereas New Super Mario Brothers Wii hit fifteen million after a mere thirty two weeks.
New Super Mario Brothers Wii becomes the sixth Wii title to reach the coveted fifteen million mark and in the seven months since the game’s release, it has climbed to the sixth spot on the list of top selling Mario games. Once again the Mario franchise has granted us a family fun platforming game that deserves its newly earned title of “Fastest to 15 Million”.
