Mario Maker 2 Switch Sales Off To An Impressive Start

Nintendo has released its earnings report for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2019, which covers the period from April to June 30. Not only did the company move another 2.13 million Switch consoles worldwide during that time frame, bringing the system's lifetime total close to 37 million, it also launched one of the system's most anticipated releases this year, Super Mario Maker 2, and the game is off to an impressive start.

According to Nintendo's earnings report, Super Mario Maker 2 sold 2.42 million units worldwide during the fiscal quarter. What makes this especially impressive is that the game launched right at the end of the quarter, on June 28, so it managed to move more than 2 million copies in only three days of availability.

Mario Maker 2 wasn't the only Nintendo game that performed well during the recent fiscal quarter. The company's best-selling Switch title, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, shifted another 1.2 million units worldwide, bringing its lifetime sales up to 17.89 million. The star-studded mascot fighter Super Smash Bros. Ultimate also continues to perform well; the game now sits at 14.73 million units and will likely soon overtake Super Mario Odyssey as Switch's second-best-selling game. You can see Nintendo's revised top 10 Switch best-sellers list here.

Nintendo recently increased the number of levels players can upload in Super Mario Maker 2. Prior to the update, players could only share a maximum of 32 courses on the game's online Course World hub, but that limit has now been doubled. Nintendo says it will increase the level upload limit one more time in the future. The company will also release an update that allows players to play online with friends, although it hasn't yet announced when that update will go live. You can read more about the game in our Super Mario Maker 2 review.

Nintendo is releasing a cheaper, portable-focused version of the Switch--dubbed the Nintendo Switch Lite--this September. This iteration of the console removes some of the system's features, such as its detachable Joy-Cons and ability to connect to a television, to better suite handheld play. Meanwhile, the base Nintendo Switch is also receiving a modest revision, with much longer battery life. The revised Switch will cost the same as the original model ($300 USD) and will launch in the US sometime in mid-August.
