While the big picture and overall sales history may not be kind to the Wii U in generations to come, the qualities of the system and some of its exclusive games have ensured that fans have happily picked up some titles in significant numbers. Super Mario Maker, Nintendo's fantastic level creation tool of 2015, has now joined a list of titles that have sold over one million copies in the US alone.
Nintendo confirmed the landmark to GamesBeat, which makes the Mario Anniversary release the sixth Wii U game to hit the landmark. These titles are below:
- Mario Kart 8
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
- Super Mario 3D World
- New Super Mario Bros. U
- Super Mario Maker
It seems that Nintendo Land is excluded from the list by virtue of largely selling as a pack-in game, as we're pretty certain more than a million copies of the mini-game collection will be in US households.
In any case it's a positive result for Wii U and Super Mario Maker - it's a worthy addition to that elite list.
