More fans than ever!
Super Mario RPG was one of those Super Nintendo titles that millions of fans wanted, but never thought Nintendo would actually do. While it took some time to bring about, Nintendo finally decided to give fans what they wanted with a full-on remake of the SNES classic for the Switch. Turns out Nintendo found the absolute perfect time to release that remake.
Throughout its entire run, the original Super Mario RPG managed to move 2.14 million units worldwide on the Super Nintendo. Wondering how the Switch version has done? Thanks to Nintendo’s Q3 report for Fiscal Year 2024, we now know that Super Mario RPG on Switch has hit 3.14 million units.
It’s hard to figure out which stat is more impressive; the fact that Super Mario RPG on Switch has outsold the entire install base of Super Mario RPG on the SNES, or the fact that it managed to pull in that number in just 6 weeks!
