It isn’t on Wikipedia’s list, though I don’t doubt that the game sold well. I don’t think Sega publicly releases their sales numbers which is probably why it’s not on the list, unlike Nintendo who release their sales numbers to the public at the end of every sales quarter or whatever it’s called.

Great quiz! Nominated!

I was expecting Kirby would be higher in the ranking. I hope the new one, when it will be released, will meet a better success.

Could you accept "51 Worlwide Classics"?

Sure! That game has a big, wordy title so I’ve made the type-ins pretty lenient.

EDIT: I just re-read your paragraph and it seems you’ve misspelled “Worldwide” as “Worlwide” (worlDwide without the D). I don’t think I’ll add that as a misspelling since I doubt it would be very common, but I have still loosened up a bit on the type-ins in a few other places.

Maybe Mario Party without "Super" could work for that one? Or Mario Party Switch or something?

I used to accept just Mario Party, but since there's now two Mario Party games on this list it would be weird to accept it for one and not the other.
