Sales of Nintendo’s current generation platform, the Wii U increased an impressive 110% when compared with August 2015. Nintendo attributes this absolutely impressive uptick in sales to the release of Super Mario Maker which has moved over 500,000 units in the U.S.A since launching on September 11th.
To quote Nintendo’s press-release, since they put it best:
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.
Super Mario Maker sales data weren’t the only numbers included in Nintendo’s latest release. We also got some numbers for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer which solved over 115,000 units in its first week of release.
Don’t forget that if you haven’t picked up Happy Home Designer it is also part of a special bundle with the smaller New Nintendo 3DS and an exclusive Isabelle faceplate!
