Mario is a platform franchise created by Nintendo. It is the best-selling video game franchise in the world, appearing in over 200 video games and selling more than 800 million units. The titular protagonist, Mario, is arguably the most recognizable video game character of all time, rivaled only by Pac-Man, Sonic, and Pikachu. The franchise originates from the arcade game Donkey Kong (1981), which stars Mario as the player character trying to rescue Pauline from the villain Donkey Kong, before Mario appeared again as a player character in the arcade game Mario Bros. (1983).

The franchise consists of several sub-series in different genres, including racing, sports, role playing, puzzle, party, and even has games starring Mario side characters like Luigi and Captain Toad. The main core series, Super Mario, began with the platformer game Super Mario Bros. (1985) on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The games consist of Mario trying to rescue Princess Peach from the villain Bowser.

As of June 2021, the Super Mario series has sold over 388.92 million copies worldwide and grossed more than $22 billion in estimated sales revenue. As of June 2021, the entire Mario franchise has sold over 758.06 million units worldwide, making it the best-selling video game franchise of all time.

Super Mario sales history[]

Super Mario Bros.[]

Super Mario Bros. was the best-selling game ever for quite some time, only overridden by Super Mario Bros. 3, then taking back the lead with over 40 million units sold. It has received several remakes, including Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, Super Luigi Bros. (included with NES Remix 2), a remake for the Virtual Console, and Super Mario All-Stars. It is the best-selling game on the NES and arguably the best-selling video game of all time, only being overridden by Tetris, although Tetris has had many adaptions for multiple consoles.

Super Mario Bros. 2[]

Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels (Super Mario Bros. 2 in Japan) sold 2.65 million units for the Famicom Disk System in Japan.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (Super Mario USA in Japan) has sold 10 million copies, making it the 4th best-selling game on the NES.

Super Mario Sunshine[]

Of the six 3D Mario video games, Super Mario Sunshine sold the least at 5.9 million. Nevertheless it was still the third best selling title on the GameCube, only being beaten by Super Smash Bros. Melee, which managed to sell a whopping 7.41 million copies, and Mario Kart: Double Dash, which sold 6.88 million.

According to the NPD, Super Mario Sunshine was the tenth best selling game of 2002 in North America.

New Super Mario Bros.[]

New Super Mario Bros. is one of the most successful video games of all time. It has sold a whopping 30.72 million copies worldwide. While considered the third best selling title for the Nintendo DS, the other two have multiple versions (Pokémon having 3 and Nintendogs having 5), so it can actually be said that New Super Mario Bros. is the best selling video game for the system.

So far the game has sold 5.2 million copies in Japan. In its first 12 weeks of sell in America, it sold an estimated 20 copies every single minute.

Super Mario Galaxy[]

Super Mario Galaxy has gained a wide commercial and critical success. As of March 31, 2008, Galaxy has sold 6.1 million copies worldwide (0.93 million in Japan, and 5.17 in other regions), making it the best-selling unbundled Wii game and the third best-selling Nintendo-published game for the Wii. The two games that outsold it, Wii Sports and Wii Play, were bundled with the console or a Wii Remote. According to the NPD Group, since the launch of the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy has become the third best-selling video game in Canada as of April 1, 2008.

Super Mario Run[]

Super Mario Run had 200 million downloads on mobile devices by October 2017.[118] As of September 2017, it has 300 million downloads.[119]
