Not that long ago, we mentioned that Pikmin 3 Deluxe was the fastest-selling entry in the franchise in Japan, and also noted that it would likely be the best-selling soon enough. That time has official come.
Thanks to the latest sales charts in Japan, we know that Pikmin 3 Deluxe has hit 513,225 physical units sold. That means it beat out the previous record-holder, which was the original Pikmin and its 502,996 units sold. Obviously Pikmin 3 Deluxe became the best-selling entry a few weeks back thanks to digital sales, but we don't have the official numbers on that. With physical sales locked in, there's no disputing the record!
