Joins a long list of million sellers
It may have just been a glorified Super NES game, but that didn't stop Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition from doing the business at retail, selling 2.24 million copies around the world since its release.
Other Nintendo-published Wii titles hitting the million sales mark in the past twelve months were the lovable Kirby's Epic Yarn, Retro reboot party starter Donkey Kong Country Returns, Wii Party and athletic compilation Mario Sports Mix
Top dog in the Wii new release stakes was intergalactic masterpiece Super Mario Galaxy 2, which racked up 6.36m units sold across the world. It still has a long way to go to beat plumbing stablemates Mario Kart Wii and New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which have sold 27m and 21.9m units worldwide respectively since their original release dates.
Including third-party releases, a total of 103 Wii games have sold over a million copies worldwide. That's a lot of white boxes on shelves.
