With the Japanese release still to come, New Super Mario Bros. Wii looks set to become the third fastest-selling Wii game to date with some strong sales - Wii hardware also sees large increases
Such a fun game. Only complaint is that it was too short. I beat it in 24 hours (collecting everything).
Ha! That's so that they can release NSMB Wii in a couple of years time...
The game is 2D. Do you really think it takes years to develop? It's competing against MW2, UC2, etc.
Uh... 24 hours is pretty good for a platformer. And then you can play multiplayer too, so...
Add 1 more. :)
24 hours is long for almost anything only RPGs and a select few other games top 30 hours
If I could have it back for one game, this would be it. Not that I have a shortage of games to play but this still looks like a tonne of fun.
can't wait for this,gonna be like a dream come true for me mario you rule
you're going to love it! It's awesome!
It's great! Also...I'd be FAR more excited if we could get a decent Donkey Kong game. Donkey Kong Country 2 is still one of my favorite games. It was Rare's masterpiece, in my opinion.
Those are some great sales, Nintendo has yet another winner it seems
Agreed. I would have bought it too if I didn't sell my two wii's 2 years back. E3 07 looked bleak and got rid of them, damn I was wrong. Looks like I gotta go get another one. LOL!
That's why you shouldn't sell your console. What's the point?
this game i am having fun with. game should get more sales then this.
I was surprised how much fun it was. I didn't like the DS version...kinda boring. : ( I'm really enjoying this. Sorry for having doubted you, Nintendo. I just wish Sony would absorb Nintendo...giving them complete creative control and unlimited funds. Both companies would have a gold-mine on their hands.
Keep non-dimensional Nintendo away from Sony.
Miyamoto is a genius though! Sony would be more than happy to have him on...
Considering the money that the Wii has been printing for Nintendo over the last 3 years I don't think that they need Sony at all. Nintendo needs to stay focused on just what they are doing, not become another tentacle off of a huge electronics conglomerate.
...but if Nintendo makes a single mistake...it's all over. Another Gamecube and the company goes under. I'm pretty sure Sony will grab more of the portable market next time also.
"keep one-dimensional Nintendo away from Sony" why? isnt that how the playstation was born....thru nintendo and sony. Heck even the square, triangle, circle, and X was in super mario world whenever a spell was casted.
@Leon Gamecube sold for a profit per console. Nintendo actually did very well (if not the best) profitwise last gen. Certainly beat xbox and IIRC PS2 also, both of which use loss leader sales.
that don't look like 8 million to me. but I guess it will catch up over the years because Mario games are timeless
will gamers stop careing about sales!!!??? anyways im up to 32 plus hours on the game i still need to complete the last four levels. loveing it!!!!!!!!!
If your favorite game sells poorly, you will never see a sequel. Also, it's more fun when you know that your favorite game is popular.
Multi looks like a disaster for anyone actually trying to get through the game.
Just beat it tonight with 2 people and usually we do 4 man, it's actually not that bad once you learn to bubble and bounce each other. Way more fun too. We beat bowser 2 player and it was probably the most intense and awesome time I've ever spent with a game.
i thought reggie said it would outsell MW2 on one platform.
That's what Reggie means! :)
There is no way this game will sell nearly as many copies as MW2 did on either the Ps3 or 360.
Saving this one as a holiday gift to me. Busy with COD:MWR right now, but I was very tempted to get NSMB this weekend.
NSMB Wii is more fun with multiple people playing. If you plan on only playing with friends get it immediately...the times you would enjoy it most are exactly when you can't play COD! Personally I like NSMB Wii better, this is the best mario ever and feels like a near perfect Super Mario World/3 hybrid. The only crappy parts are the scarce yoshi and NO GIANT WORLD, WTF NINTENDO YOU KNOW WE ALL WANT GIANT WORLD. At least I can fix the yoshi problems with a level editor. After getting my wii SMG was my favorite game ever. This dethroned it easily. I wouldn't feel this way had I played single player. Tonight I beat bowser with the best player on my usual 4 man team tho - bowser would shoot a fireball and I'd bounce off my friends head, sending me above the fireball and knocking my friend underneath it. Or I'd jump on the tiny moving platforms and my friend would take up a lot of it, leaving me to bounce on his head until I could find a safe place to land while avoiding fire blasts, lava, and running as fast as we could. This is an amazing amazing game.
I'm waiting till the first to pick up my copy and I can only imagine the numbers will rise over x-mas. I just wish there were more games to look forward to on the Wii. So far after Mario the only game I'm waiting for is monster hunter!
you should look into a boy and his blob, little; kings story and muramusa. anyways i think youl;l be enjoying this title for months to come. its like amrio kart or smash bros if u pass it the fun aint over, u can keep gpoing back to it for multiplayer
I bought this game on release date, its good. But the graphics suck, they remind me of the old pc platformer games, like james pond. Functional, but bland and charmless.
I agree with that. I think the reason why the old games had so much charm and this doesnt at all is Miyamoto is hardly involved in these games. He's much more on the business side. He said he had very little to do with this game, and it shows. It's kind of bland.
Its nice to see that Nintendo is still working with classic platformers. I played the DS version and it was a blast in my opinion. A great addition to the Wii's gaming library.
Way too similar to the DS game. I didnt think it was that good and its a solid (gamefly) rental, but I guess people will buy anything these days.
I didn't know Miyamoto wasn't involved, that would explain it. I thought the same about the mario party games, they have all the characters and themes of mario games but don't have the charm. I wish they made more of an effort with the art direction of this game. Apart from that, its good.
Outside of some of the casual stuff, he really hasnt been closely involved in games in a long time. Not since the N64 days, and you can really see a drop in quality in most of this stuff, mostly in the creativity department. He had a lot of control over Prime 1, that was the most recent I know of, after that he's mostly on the business side for Nintendo, but did work on some of these casual games like Wii Music. You play this new mario game and its not what it once was. They feel pretty generic.
That's not a bad number considering it hasn't even released in all territories yet.
I'm sure this game will have some long legs this xmas holiday. Even my gf wants this game.
wow no japan sales and black friday and xmas sales. it just may hit 2.5mill maybe 3 world wide by january =O
It just may outsell mario kart, and its a great game and deserves all the sales. my online complaint is no wifi.
I might buy it too, but I have to clear NGS2 in Master Ninja mode first.
