New Super Mario Bros. Breaks Sales Record

It looks like New Super Mario Bros. is breaking the record for one-day game sales in Japan. Gamasutra writes: “According to apparent information from Japanese retailers… New Super Mario Bros, which debuted on May 25th in Japan, sold a gigantic 480,000 copies on its first day at retail. The figure, if confirmed by Japanese tracking firm Media Create next week, will be the largest ever single-day sales figure in Japan, with fellow Nintendo DS title Brain Training 2 holding the previous figure at 415,000 in first-day sales…”

Yeah, it’s that good.
