Super Mario Galaxy 2 Sales Record

Selling a cumulative nationwide sale of more than 1.1 million units
In the month of June, U.S. sales of Super Mario Galaxy 2 reached 548,000 units, according to the independent NPD Group, bringing the game's cumulative nationwide sales to more than 1.1 million units, Nintendo announced. In the game, Mario collects stars as he travels from galaxy to galaxy and he works his way through the various levels, sometimes upside-down, sometimes floating from place to place. On some stages, Mario can find an egg, smash it open and hop onto the back of Yoshi. Yoshi can use his tongue to grab items and shoot them back at enemies, or to snag attach points and swing across chasms. New power-ups include a drill that Mario uses to tunnel through the planet's surface all the way to the other side of a planet. Skilled players will want to collect new Comet Metals, which will unlock harder levels with even more challenges.
