According to Japanese gaming publication Famitsu (via Kotaku), New Super Mario Bros. Wii has become Japan's fastest selling Wii game ever, selling nearly a million copies in its first week of sale. The previous record holder was Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which sold 816,000 units; NSMB moved 936,734 copies.
Gee, it’s hard to see why Nintendo never strays too far from its proven formulas for its first part Wii games – they have consistently proven themselves popular, and, most importantly, profitable. I wonder if this means a NSMB’s sequel is in the works…(bursts out laughing)…Oh man. I almost lost it about halfway through saying that.
