Not bad for DQ10 and Wii, but expected them to be higher. NSMB2 sales are disappointing. I really hope digital sales are huge because it's starting to compare terribly to its bigger brother...

Week Ending Week Weekly Change Total
27th May 2006 1 910,297 N/A 910,297
03rd June 2006 2 336,052 -63.1% 1,246,349
10th June 2006 3 252,464 -24.9% 1,498,813
17th June 2006 4 207,043 -18.0% 1,705,856
24th June 2006 5 175,950 -15.0% 1,881,806
01st July 2006 6 159,027 -9.6% 2,040,833
08th July 2006 7 138,153 -13.1% 2,178,986
15th July 2006 8 123,890 -10.3% 2,302,876
22nd July 2006 9 150,153 21.2% 2,453,029
29th July 2006 10 119,420 -20.5% 2,572,449

Basically, NSMB FW > NSMB2 3 weeks of sales! Its amazing how the game kept selling 100k+ for 13 consecutive weeks!!!

Next week I think is Obon so everything should be up.

Don't forget that the DS had 2 million more hardware units sold more than the 3DS at the same time. Also take in series fatigue.

Which is Nintendo's fault. Focusing on collecting coins is not interesting, and almost 100% sure people buy it for the platforming, which again, doesn't show anything new.

As someone who hasn't played, but watched the walkthrough (I know, I know) it was dissaponting to see nothing new on level design and worlds looking like DS rather than Wii. Hopefully NSMBU is a true NSMB sequel.

In my opinion, these NSMB games lack a certain 'charm' compared to 2D Marios on the NES and SNES...they spent about 15 years without releasing a new iteration till NSMB for the DS back in 2006, then they opened their eyes to the fact 2D Mario is a huge system seller, but it seems they only treat it as a cash in game, a way to make a quick buck.You can tell their priorities, when it comes to truly polishing a game and giving it their best, lie with 3D Mario.

It´s sad because they owe their success to the original Mario Brothers...if it wasn´t for that game, maybe the NES wouldn´t have taken off.

Sadly, I think it's series fatigue. While the game looks fun (coin collecting should add much replay value), the gameplay, levels, graphics, etc are very similar. Are they even taking advantage of 3D?

On NSMBU, I haven't seen much new stuff about beside the pretty graphics. But still new is sparse about this one.

Your Windows 7 devs should be panicking since Windows 8 will wipe the floor with 7!

Agree. 100%. Super Mario Bros. 3 is the king (imo) with SMW coming closely. The 3 NSMB games are far from the charming of those games.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Ok before judging, you guys should really wait on digital sales :P

Maybe it helps the 3DS if it hits eight million before the PSV hits one million.

Let's see how many weeks it takes until NSMB2 drops below 50k units in weekly sales.

double woah at (lack of) 3DS drop.

Eh...? But... wait a second, those are cumulative sales! Everyone's going to start shipping their Vitas back to the manufacturer?
