Divide that by the number of games and it is less than 2.5 million sales per game

@BlmThug Mario has or has been in over 200 games so do your math over and I doubt each mario game sold only 2.5 million ha lol especially when mario kart on the wii sold over 32 million and I'm sure there are a lot of other examples do yo research dumbass and of course mario will continue to sell a shitload

As much as i respect Mario Bros. & the impact in gaming that the series has in the industry. I wish Nintendo can at least retire the plumber briefly to work on new IPs.

Not saying stop making games for the series but slow down on the amount of games Mario appears in. Nintendo is too dependent on Mario that for me personally is hampering the development of new series, Ips, or other Nintendo franchises that also deserve some spotlight (F-Zero Hello!? Star Fox?!).

Anyways congrats on the accomplishment cause it is well deserved no matter what the 'haters' say.
