Super Mario Maker Drives 110 Percent Lift in Wii U Hardware Sales


It looks as though the popular Super Mario Maker lifted the sales of the struggling Wii U system. Here is what the big N had to say regarding the game:

The ability to create, play and share your own unique Super Mario levels was a dream 30 years in the making for Mario fans. Turns out it was also a great reason to jump into the Wii U experience. The Super Mario Maker game for the Wii U console launched in the U.S. on Sept. 11 and sold nearly 445,000 combined units in its first three weeks (Sept. 11, 2015 – Oct. 3, 2015), bringing the lifetime total to more than 500,000 combined units in the U.S. alone (Sept. 11 – Oct. 19, 2015). Perhaps the biggest impact however has been on hardware sales. For the full month of September, sales of Wii U hardware in the United States increased by nearly 110 percent over sales in August. Software sells hardware and no one sells hardware like Mario.

Sounds good Nintendo. Thanks for such a wonderful product.

Nintendo’s 8th generation home console, the Wii U, has seen a boost in sales in recent weeks due to the holiday season as well as the success of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The game has nearly sold two million units worldwide.
