I'm getting the sense that people weren't quite as excited about the sequel, but over time perhaps it'll catch up in sales.

It's only a little more than 3 million copies away from Super Mario Galaxy, and released three years later. Wii titles are long burners.

Opening day 500,000 copies.
Opening year 5,000,000 copies.
Nintendo games typically sell HUGE numbers, but not immediately.

Yep, this.

That's why I never understand when ANY Wii game, whether it's first or third party, gets crap over not getting huge opening sales. They all have long burns (even games like MadWorld). The games don't open like Halo or COD or GTA because few games do, and almost no Wii games get huge advertising budgets to begin with.
