Sell sell sell!

Super Mario Odyssey has given Switch the sales boost it needed to pass the two million consoles sold marker in its native Japan.

Last week, Switch sold 133,094 units, with the bulk of that figure apparently thanks to the Super Mario Odyssey Switch bundle. Last week also marked the biggest delivery of Switch stock Nintendo had issued to retailers in the last four months, meaning there were more consoles on offer than normal.

According to Famitsu, Super Mario Odyssey sold 511,625 copies during its first three days on sale in Japan. These sales include game-specific download cards and the Switch Super Mario Odyssey bundle, but not copies purchased directly from the Switch eShop. 

It would appear that the entire shipment of physical copies sold during the first three days on sale, so the total figure could well have been even higher.
