Putting Super Mario Maker 2's Japanese launch sales in perspective

A surefire hit

GN Version 5.0

Super Mario Maker 2's first week of sales in Japan brought in 196,153 units sold, which was more than enough to take the #1 spot for the week. Keep in mind, this is the first week figure, but it actually just accounts for 3 days' worth of data. Just how does that total measure up to the first week sales for its predecessor?

Super Mario Maker on Wii U managed to move 143,514 units in its first week, and the 3DS port sold 160,016 at launch. As you can see the Switch version had no problem trumping the sales for the previous installment.
