There’s a reason major Nintendo games tend to drop in price very slowly, and every now and then, we see a reminder of why. Like this week, for instance.

 

Nintendo released Super Mario 64 DS eight whole years ago. This past week, the game crossed the 5 million mark in the U.S., making it the third Nintendo DS game in the region to do so, according to Nintendo of America.

 

The other two Nintendo DS games to cross the 5 million figure in the U.S. alone are New Super Mario Bros. (10.6 million) and Mario Kart DS (8.5 million).
