Global sales of the Mario Party franchise have surpassed 39 million copies, Nintendo has announced.

"Mario Party 10 is the first Wii U instalment in the revered Mario Party series, which since its debut – Mario Party – on Nintendo 64 in 1999 has sold over 39.6 million copies globally," the company said in a post on its website.

The latest entry in the series will be coming exclusively to Nintendo's tablet-centric console next month, and features a number of exciting new additions, including a Bowser Party mode. For more on Mario Party 10, check out our hands-on preview.

Probably the only person to ask this, but... does this include the portable installments and the e-reader title?
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

If we only count main-line releases that is close to 4 million per title. Not a bad shake for a party game over time. I have not picked one up since #4 on the Gamecube so I might have to get the latest one at some point.

Out of curiosity, I looked up the sales numbers on Wikipedia (lol Wikipedia) and the nine console games combined equal 22.614 million. Mario Party DS sold 8.21 million which would bring the total to a little over 30 million. I could not find sales numbers for Mario Party Advance, Mario Party Island Tour, or the e-Reader game; this would seem to indicate that Mario Party Advance sold under a million, unless its numbers were never reported in a place that Wikipedia could cite. Island Tour may be too new to have a number reported.

So yes, it does include the handheld titles, but not sure about the e-Reader card game. There's a piece missing here to get that 9 extra million. I don't know if they're counting some other obscure stuff that I don't know about, like for example there's some Mario Party sort of arcade game in Japan.

I somehow thought the number was higher. Oh well still planning on getting 10 its one of the few games I am excited for.
Trying to be a better person, honest.
