Japanese publisher Enterbrain
has revealed in this week's Famitsu
that New Super Mario Bros. Wii
has gone quadruple platinum in the region. NSMBW
is Nintendo's first game on the console to achieve that status, having sold 4,001,276 copies as of Sunday. The title will celebrate its one-year anniversary on the market on December 3.
Nintendo financial documents
reveal that NSMBW
had reached global sales of 16.7 million units by the end of September. That's like, if you're being strictly mathematical about it, nearly triple-quintuple-plus-double platinum.
