NSMB Wii does the business in Japan

Country's first quadruple platinum Wii game.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii is Nintendo's motion-sensing console's first quadruple platinum selling game in Japan, fresh sales data has revealed.

When it crossed the four million copies sold barrier in Japan this week it became the first Wii game to do so. Enterbrain's latest sales results put the game at 4,001,276 units as of Sunday (revealed by Andriasang).

New Super Mario Bros. Wii became the Wii's best-selling game in March when it neared the 3.5 million mark. Is there no end to the portly plumber's popularity?

The game deserves all the sales success it enjoys. Oli gave the four-player platformer 9/10 in Eurogamer 's New Super Bros. Wii review.
