Super Mario 3D Land is, thus far, having more success than Super Mario Galaxy. 3D Land sold through 8 million copies while Galaxy moved 7.66 million units through their first 13 months on the market.
Japan could be pointed to as the primary reason for Super Mario 3D Land's success. However, 3D Land sold 1.85 million copies in Japan whereas Galaxy's sales stood at 934,000.
Galaxy has sold slightly more in the west. But thanks to sales from Japan, 3D Land is outpacing Galaxy worldwide.
