While we’ll need a few more weeks of data before a celebration is in order, it looks like Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is off to a stellar start in Japan.

We shared the weekly Japanese software sales earlier today, and it showed that Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door debuted at #1 this week. The game sold 115,649 physical units, which is good enough for it to beat out the debut of Paper Mario: The Origami King, which amassed 109,092 physical units sold for its debut.

What we don’t know right now is the digital sales tally, and it’s likely we’ll never get the split on that, as Nintendo doesn’t share those figures. What is worth pointing out is that digital is bigger than ever right now, making The Thousand-Year Door’s higher physical sales that much more impressive. It’s not a huge difference between the debuts for these two titles, but nevertheless, The Thousand-Year Door’s start shows that Paper Mario fans love the classics.
