- The Super Mario RPG has surpassed a massive milestone recently after being revealed, showcasing its significance in the Nintendo community.
- It has overtaken The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom to become the best-selling game on Amazon US. Nintendo has not officially revealed exact sales figures for the game as of now.
- The original Super Mario RPG on SNES reportedly rolled over more than 200k units in one month. The new remake is expected to surpass the original sales record by the community.
- The game comes out for Nintendo Switch on November 17, 2023. It can be pre-ordered now from the Nintendo eShop.
The Super Mario RPG remake was announced only recently in the recent Nintendo Direct 2023 event, but it has reportedly surpassed a major milestone. The anticipated fans and all the hype around the much-awaited remake have propelled it to surpass The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in the Amazon US store. It has become the current best-selling game on Amazon US, only overshadowed by the PlayStation Store and Xbox Giftcards.
It is certainly a good sign for the Super Mario RPG remake because many fans have already started pre-ordering the game soon after it was announced. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was all the hype, and it was able to live up to it, yet even its sales have already been beaten despite the newly-revealed remake having been listed only for a short amount of time.
Comparing the remake’s current sales to the original version, we can easily predict that it may surpass it by a wide margin. The original Super Mario RPG on SNES reportedly rolled over more than 200k units in one month in the United States, which was a huge number back in the day. However, the new remake could easily surpass that if the best-sellers list is to be believed.
Best selling games currently on Amazon US:
1) Super Mario RPG Remake
2) Zelda: TOTK
3) Super Mario Bros. Wonder
4) FF XVI
5) Pikmin 1+2 Collection
In the US, the original Super Mario RPG on SNES sold 200k in one month. I have a feeling the remake will crush that haha.

The sudden rise of the remake in Amazon’s best-sellers list puts things into perspective regarding the popularity of the project. The Nintendo fans have grown a whole lot in numbers since the initial release of the Super Mario RPG; the remake will have both old and new players to significantly increase its player base.
It is worth noting that most of the top 5 spots are riddled with popular Nintendo entries in the best-sellers category of Amazon US, hinting towards its dominance in the western region. Super Mario Bros. Wonder is at the 7th spot, and Square Enix’s new Final Fantasy 16 boasts the 12th place. While we do not know the exact sales number, it is clear that the Super Mario RPG remake has outperformed these big AAA titles to stand at the peak.
The recent Nintendo Direct event was nothing short of exhilarating, revealing some of the heartiest entries that no one expected. Super Mario RPG remake is among the most fan-favorite titles to be announced at the event, pulling just the right heartstrings of the wistful fans. The awaited title will serve as the best venture into the classical and reimagined Mario experience we know and love both for nostalgic veterans and new gamers alike.
The Super Mario RPG remake will take us on a new journey in a land afflicted by a villainous figure trying to steal away the world. Walk a dangerous yet enticing path along with renowned characters, including Mario, Bowser, Peach, and original figures, like Mallow and Geno, to save the world. The modern reimagining of the game comes out for Nintendo Switch on November 17, 2023. It can be pre-ordered now from the Nintendo eShop.
