While Animal Crossing: New Horizons was Nintendo’s biggest smash last year, moving a staggering 30 million copies in just nine months, it was hardly the only hit the company had in 2020. The classic compilation Super Mario 3D All-Stars was also a huge success, selling 8.32 million units according to Nintendo’s earnings report.
Released as part of Nintendo’s Super Mario 35th anniversary celebration, Super Mario 3D All-Stars packages the plumber’s first three 3D adventures–Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy–together in one collection. The compilation has been a quick seller since its release in September; not only did it have one of the year’s biggest launches in the UK, but it was also the second-best-selling game on Amazon in 2020.
3D All-Stars’ sales figures already put it within reach of Nintendo’s top 10 best-selling first-party Switch games. Number 10 on that list, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, stands at 9.82 million units as of December 31. Animal Crossing, meanwhile, is already closing in on the top spot. The current top seller, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, has sold 33.41 million units, which means Animal Crossing could conceivably surpass it before long.
