New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe - Japanese commercial

I am so interested to see how well New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe does overall. I really think it could be another huge hit for Nintendo, along the lines of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game's launch is right around the corner, so we'll all find out soon enough!


I've already said this before but 2D Mario is already not Mario Kart, I don't see as many people rebuying this one, I'd say this game is lucky if it gets to 5 million, the only reason I see it hitting that or above is that its a January release.

New Super Mario Bros U was the Wii U's third best-selling title behind Mario Kart 8 and Mario 3d World with around 5 million sold. Smash Bros was 4th. Could be interesting to see who double dips vs how many get it for the first time.

Again as always, it was one of the few launch titles of note and was the main bundle for half the systems life. But besides that, it still did sell well, I dont think it really is the game that people are jumping to buy again, however, especially at full price.

5 million would be great sales though, especially for such a low effort title.

5 million really is the best I see it doing, I expect lower

I really want it to do poorly so they're not encouragd to keep churning out any more of these dull 'NEW' Mario titles, but I know in my heart of hearts it's going to do well and this particular series is going to continue on for years to come.

My fear is that it does poorly and they decide to not bring a Mario Maker to the Switch since it indicates a lack of interest in 2D Mario. Or that it does well and they decide not to bring Mario Maker to the Switch since it indicates that people are fine with the non-Maker titles.
