Super Mario Odyssey Has Sold Over 2 Million Units In Three Days

Super Mario Run hits 200m downloads, but is still short of Nintendo goals

In Nintendo's newest quarterly earnings report, it seems that the company is not happy with the profit made by mobile game Super Mario Run, despite the fact that it was downloaded over 200 million times. The numbers back that up-Nintendo has sold over 2 million copies of Super Mario Odyssey in just the first three days since it came out.

Yesterday Nintendo released various facts and figures from its latest investors meeting which showed a very promising first 6 months for the Nintendo Switch.

It's been several years since we've seen an open-world exploratory Mario game (though Super Mario 3D Land and 3D World weren't too shabby at all), but Super Mario Odyssey happily fills that void with hours of blissful fun. Luckily for Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild turned out to be a fantastic title, and early on it even sold more copies than the console itself. And with the holiday season fast approaching, Nintendo is set to sell a whole bunch more.

Perhaps the company's only bust was Super Mario Run, which Nintendo says has been downloaded 200 million times but has not hit an "acceptable profit point", because people who play games on their phone don't like downloading free games only to be told that they have to pay.

Though Super Mario Odyssey has already received its fair share of flawless scores, Nintendo took a slight risk with the latest title in its flagship franchise.

Super Mario Odyssey is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.

"By releasing this product against a backdrop of maintained and growing buzz around Nintendo Switch, which also has continually high usage rates, we think this will give us a big edge heading into the holiday season", Kimishima said. It's already snowballing into a huge success within a mere three days. Super Mario Galaxy 3, please.
