When most people discuss Nintendo’s 2018 lineup, the conversation is dominated by Pokémon and Super Smash Bros., and understandably so. But Nintendo had another huge hit on their hands at the end of the year. Super Mario Party launched in October to the best reviews the series has had in decades and strong early sales.
Now that the holiday season is all wrapped up, Nintendo has updated all of its sales totals, and Super Mario Party is still impressing. The fan-favorite friendship killer has sold over 5.3 million copies as of December 31st, 2018. This makes it the third highest-selling Mario Party game of all time (trailing only Mario Party 8 and Mario Party DS) and puts it at number seven on the Switch software sales charts.
