Super Mario Odyssey, the newest installment of mainline 3D Mario games from Nintendo, has been met with incredibly positive reception from critics and fans. It was just recently revealed that the current sales figures mark Odyssey as the best selling Super Mario of all time.

Super Mario Odyssey was able to sell 1.1 million copies within its first five days of launch, according to Business Wire, making it the fastest-selling Super Mario title, and the fastest selling Nintendo Switch game to date.

“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.” – Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America

Because of the Switch’s growing library of games, the console has been able to sell over 2.6 million units in the U.S. alone.

Many additional titles are coming to Nintendo Switch in the coming weeks, including Psynonix’s Rocket League and Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
