NPD sales tracking data has revealed Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury has experienced a strong start in the US, in terms of sales. In its launch month of February, the game was ranked as the best-selling game and the second best-selling game of 2021. Notably, this doesn't include its digital sales.

Here it is in the words of NPD analyst, Mat Piscatella. The best-selling game of the year so far goes to the latest Call of Duty.

"Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury debuts as the best-selling game of February. The title also ranks as the 2nd best-selling game of 2021 year-to-date, despite the lack of digital sales tracking for Nintendo published titles."

Keep in mind, no sales figures have been provided. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons were also in the top ten best-sellers of February 2021.

Super Mario 3D World appears to have been just as successful in other regions. In Japan, the game launched in the top spot on the charts and is estimated to have sold 250,000 physical copies in the first few days. Over the UK, sales were reportedly 190% more than the Wii U original, and the game was labelled 2021's fastest-selling release.
