Mario Golf: Super Rush debuted on the NPD charts at #3. We now have some additional insight into the game’s performance.

It’s  confirmed that launch month dollar sales for Mario Golf: Super Rush were the highest ever for a Mario Golf game. Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, which came to GameCube in July 2003, held the record previously.

On another software note, it’s worth noting that the Switch version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 moved the game back into the NPD charts. It went from #51 in May to #17 in June.

Mario and sports have had a symbiotic relationship since the early days of the NES, giving people at home arcade twists on the classic physical games of skill. Outings in the likes of golf, tennis, soccer/football, baseball, and all the way to the Olympics have seen Nintendo’s all-star roster challenge each other in a variety of ways on virtually every platform. Mario Golf: Super Rush now sees Nintendo’s first golf outing since World Tour on 3DS back in 2013 and brings with it a slew of new features that make it arguably one of the best entries in all of the Mario sports series. Super Rush features not only a return to form, but refreshing gameplay thanks to its multiple modes and new takes on golf between Speed Golf and Battle Golf.
