A List Of Nintendo’s Best-Selling Wii Games

While digging through Nintendo’s latest annual report, we came across sales numbers for some of their more high-profile Wii games. We’ve edited the chart below to include each game’s year of release in the U.S., so our readers have some indication of how long it took each game to reach its current figure. Sales figures below are worldwide, as of March 2011:

I was a little taken aback by the figure for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, as I — perhaps wrongly — expected it to be higher. Twilight Princess was also available on the Gamecube, and the last recorded sales number for the Gamecube version was 1.32 million units sold by 2007.

 

Note: Wii Sports was originally a pack-in with the Wii in the U.S. and Europe. In May 2010, Wii Sports Resort became a pack-in game alongside Wii Sports with the black Wii bundle. In May 2011, Mario Kart Wii became a pack-in game for a new Wii bundle.
