Super Mario Maker sells 1m

Fist pump.

Super Mario Maker has sold 1m units, Nintendo has announced.

The Wii U exclusive went on sale on 11th September. Wii U has sold just over 10m units lifetime to date.

Fun stat: Super Mario Maker is the 32nd game in the Super Mario franchise to sell at least 1m units. Over 350m games in the Super Mario franchise have been sold in the 30 years it's been going.

Meanwhile, more than 2.2m Mario courses have been created, Nintendo said, which combined have been played 75m times. Many of those plays will be of the ultra hard levels created by PangeaPanga, whose good work we've reported on a couple of times recently.

This seems like a good opportunity to point towards our video of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto explaining the creation of Super Mario Bros' 1-1 with the help of Super Mario Maker.
