2021's fastest selling release yet.

We never doubted Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury would be successful. Recently awarding it 10/10 stars, 3D World was the last Switch port we'd been waiting on from the Super Mario 35th Anniversary celebrations. So far, it's doing significantly better than the Wii U edition, selling 190% more boxed copies at launch in the UK and dethroning Animal Crossing: New Horizons from the number one spot.

Releasing on the same day as the PS4 in Europe probably didn't help matters, either. Eventually selling 5.86 million copies in its lifetime, Super Mario 3D World was the Wii U's second best-selling game, beaten only by Mario Kart 8.
