Super Mario Party Passes A Million Copies Sold in US

The recent Black Friday to Cyber Monday appeared to work in Mario Party’s favor, or more specifically, Super Mario Party’s favor, it would appear. This year’s entrant in the long-running (as far back as the N64) series — and the first in three years, following the tenth numbered release on the Wii U back in 2015 — has managed to rack up more than a million copies sold in the US alone.

It was also the fastest-selling entrant in the series to date, according to Nintendo’s own internal sales figure, and becomes the fifth million-seller in the US following The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey. And there’s plenty of good reasons to check out Mario’s latest party antics it would appear — the ability to use character-specific dice blocks especially, as simple a premise it might sound, working quite a treat during the usual madness that is any game of Mario Party.
