mario galaxy sold over 10 million so 3d world did flop at this point, its life time sales may exceed that though .

They did less than hoped for and didn't dramatically increase Wii U sales to a desired amount

I still think it's because of the lack of marketing and launch of two major systems, but even then SM3DW and WWHD both sold less than games in the series tend to do

Hopefully numbers increase in the coming years, OOT remake for 3DS sold around 3 million and SM3DL sold around 8 million so using those as comparisons in the next 2-3 years both these games should have about as much sold to be considered good

I usually don't care about this sort of stuff but I was sad when I heard Ryse outsold Super Mario 3D World. I think Knack did too. It would be nice if those games just had a huge headstart since they were launch titles and SM3DW will keep enough steady sales to eventually surpass those other games in lifetime sales.

For a remake (WW HD), over 1 million sounds pretty damn good. I bet it'll go much higher too.

Not surprising, this is Mario and Zelda after all.

that's actually amazing when you consider the attach rate. Problem is that no one is buying the system, but people who own the system buys them. NSMBu is like over 50% of wii u install base in sales (that amazing)

In terms of raw figures, it's not great, but the adoption rate of the two is like 20-25%. That's crazy.

Yeah, that's a problem games had back then. You actually had to get good at them. - Mctias

Yeah, it's almost as if there's nothing else to play on it.....
