US: Paper Mario: The Origami King sets new launch month record for franchise, beats Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

Switch

Paper Mario: The Origami King only released just under a month ago and it’s clear that fans are lapping it up as sales for the title have been strong according to NPD. The papery RPG for Nintendo Switch, which is the sixth instalment in the franchise, has set a new record for a Paper Mario launch month and it has even dethroned the popular Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door and Super Paper Mario. Thanks to Mat Piscatella, an analyst over at NPD, he gives us a little more insight:

“Paper Mario: The Origami King was the third-best-selling game of July,” Piscatella said. “Paper Mario: The Origami King set a new launch month sales record for a Paper Mario title, with physical launch month dollar sales more than doubling those of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.”
