Super Mario 3D Land sells a metric buttload in Japan

0

Super Mario 3D Land has debuted at number one in the Japanese charts, and to say it is performing well is putting it lightly. In fact, we're looking at the best 3D Mario debut in history, despite 3DS' documented run of bad publicity. Mario's the fixer, guys. He makes everything better.

With a strong opening act of 343,492 sales, 3D Land is looking set to join the best selling Mario games of all time, and will give the 3DS that kick in the junk it's needed all year. In fact, 3DS sales sit at 145,271 this week, proving that the dwarfish plumber is still a man with whom you don't f*ck. 

Good news for Nintendo this week, and thanks to our tipster Fernando, who had this to say:

So... are you guys going to say that Nintendo is doomed like you always do, or do you guys have the balls to write the real story and explain your readers that the system is permorming way better than the DS in the same amount of time?

Yep! We literally predict Nintendo's death every day, so I better not hit "publish" on this post!
