Super Mario Party also charted in September, coming in at #9.


Mario Party: The Top 100 debuted in Japan on December 28. Through December 31, it moved a little over 50,000 copies. Dengeki further adds that the game sold through roughly 60% of its initial shipment.

We also know that Mario Party: The Top 100 sold another 50,000 copies in its second week, so sales remained very steady. Part of that is likely due to carryover from the holidays. Even so, for the kind of game it is, Nintendo is likely pleased with how it’s selling thus far.

Less than two weeks ago, Nintendo announced the release date for Mario Party: The Top 100 in Europe. The game was set to launch on January 5th next year.

The reasoning for the release date change is unclear, though perhaps Nintendo wanted to profit from some last-minute Christmas shoppers.
