Super Mario Galaxy 2 sells loads

Pokemon: Black/White not far behind.

Wonderful Wii platformer Super Mario Galaxy 2 has sold a whopping 5.1 million units worldwide, Nintendo has announced.

Mario's latest deserves its sales success: we awarded it 10/10 in our June review.

Phenomenon Pokémon: Black & White, though, will no doubt top it as Nintendo's best-selling game of 2010: the DS game is already on 4.07 million units having only gone on sale in Japan last month. The sales stats are buried within Nintendo's latest financial report.

Wii Party, which released in July in Japan, is a million seller. The game was released on our shores earlier this month, and received a warm 7/10 from Christian Donlan.
