Two Million Copies In Three Days. Mario's Odyssey Sells Super Fast

Super Mario Odyssey is moving into consumers homes with Star Power enhanced speed.

A quick look at the Amazon gaming sales for 2017 before Super Mario Odyssey even launched gave a glimpse at the game's potential future. Fairly quickly post-launch, we can already see that potential being realized as Super Mario Odyssey has sold two million copies in three days.

The sales figures come via a Eurogamer report and include bundles, digital sales, and physical individual copies. The excitement is warranted, considering we're talking about one of gaming's legends, but what of the reviews? Ours is still in the works, but Super Mario Odyssey is holding at a 97% on Metacritic. That score solidifies it as the highest rating game on all consoles on Metacritic, for now, which is a full four points ahead of Divinity: Original Sin 2 in the number two spot.

Are you one of the two million? If you are or plan to be in the near future, we've got the Super Mario Odyssey Complete Strategy Guide for your viewing pleasure. Apple users can snatch up a bit of a bonus with some stickers for iOS celebrating the game's release as well.

        It is a wonderful throwback to the Mario games of old, like Sunshine, 64 and to a slightly lesser extent, the Galaxy games. The game is fantasitc, and I'm kinda surprised it doesn't have a 1 to 1 sales ratio to the console itself.

          I wish I enjoyed the Galaxy games more, but the waggle controls exhausted me sadly

            Same. The new one is a mix of Mario 64 and Mario 3D world, and it's awesome. There's some waggle controls but they are mostly unneeded.

            I'm playing the entire thing in handheld mode, I don't really use the motion controls at all
