Great debut for SMM2 with 196k and the Switch boosted by 30k from last week and by 8k from last year. This week 26 is the ninth highest week for the Switch. Last edited by nero - on 03 July 2019

Good, not great numbers for MM2 and switch hardware.



Damn! Almost 200k!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Nice start for SMM2, anybody remember how much NSMBUD sold on its first week? I'm interested in comparing how popular the Maker series is compared to the regular 2D Mario games.

PS4 is holding well considering it's not discounted anymore (right?).



Signature goes here!

Switch didn't make it to the 60-70k range I expected, but it's more important how sales will be sustained after this week anyway. After the valley with a baseline in the 30-35k range, it should be back up to 40-50k.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I've just checked. About 166k on its first week, while Super Mario Maker for Wii U sold about 150k.



Good start for MM2, although the media create numbers for the game got leaked and it was 230k. I wonder why there was such a big difference there. Also, digital sales might be high on this one, so I can’t wait to find out at the end of the month

NSMBU Deluxe sold 185k units first week, according to Famitsu. It's a port of an old game though.

According to a mix of Media Create and Famitsu as sources:

NSMB (DS) - 899k
NSMB Wii - 936k
NSMB2 - 430k
NSMBU - 160k

The staleness of NSMB2 certainly took a toll on sales. NSMBU was a Wii U launch title, so naturally capped by sales of the console (Wii U debuted to sales of a good 300k units, so that would have been the maximum NSMBU could have achieved with a 100% attach rate). Although staleness was a factor too.

Thanks, it seems the Maker series is slightly less popular than the regular 2D Marios but even then 2D Mario has taken a massive drop since the highs of NSMBW which opened at 943k.

Yeah something needs to be done to shake up the formula because another title in the same vein won't probably do so well.
