Well of course it did
. The original Wii Sports
currently resides in like, four out of every five households on the planet -- why wouldn't the Japanese gaming populace spring to consumer action when the MotionPlus-bundled follow-up landed on store shelves?
Within the first four days of its release, Wii Sports Resort
moved 353,827 copies, making it the third-fastest selling Wii title ever
-- Mario Kart Wii
sold 608,000 copies in a similar time period, while Super Smash Bros. Brawl
moved 816,000 copies. Whether the frisbee-throwing, sword-dueling, jetski-riding simulator can come close to the 45 million mark
set by its bundled forefather remains to be seen.
