It's safe to say that Super Mario Odyssey has been a hit so far, both critically and commercially. It's been clocking up impressive sales in all territories, and now Nintendo of America has confirmed a notable landmark for the US market.

The public continues to respond positively to Mario’s latest adventure. We’re also seeing sales momentum for Nintendo Switch thanks to an ever-growing catalog of games from large publishers and indie developers.
