And it’s not even out yet!
Super Mario Odyssey is going to be a total monster when it finally releases tomorrow. The game has already been met with rave reviews from multiple critics and outlets worldwide (its Metascore currently is 97, and on OpenCritic and GameRankings, it is now the highest rated game of all time), and Mario remains the most bankable brand there is in gaming.
Just how much are we expecting Mario to sell? Well, consider Amazon’s yearly charts for game sales- as of right now, Super Mario Odyssey is already the second highest selling game of the year on the web retailer (spotted by ResetEra). On Amazon, Super Mario Odyssey has outsold all other games from this year except one- and it’s not even out yet.
Incidentally, the game it has not yet managed to outsell is… Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, another Mario and Nintendo Switch game. The number 3 highest selling game of the year, meanwhile, is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, because right now, Nintendo has a total stranglehold on the sales charts.
NPD will be wild next month. Super Mario Odyssey launches tomorrow, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for our review.
