Nintendo has revealed that Luigi’s Mansion 3 has sold more than 5.37 million copies worldwide.

From that number, sell-through for the Nintendo Switch exclusive “has exceeded 4 million units” since the game’s launch and has sold “more than twice as fast” as Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.

“The total sell-through in Japan, North America, and Europe for Luigi’s Mansion 3 has exceeded 4 million units in the 9 weeks since its release on October 31,” Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa explained at the recent Corporate Management Policy Briefing.

“Compare to the sellthrough of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon released in March 2013, it is off to more than twice as fast of a start during the same time period from the release.

“Compare to Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, its momentum of sell-through is particularly stronger in North America and Europe, the ratio of overseas sales has been high for this title.

“In addition, although people in their twenties were the main purchasers immediately after release, the ratio of children and families increased as the holiday season approached. “
