10 million is not a negligible amount by any count, but for a platform exclusive and a single territory it's a huge achievement.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii released in late 2009 and hit 10 million worldwide sales in January 2010, which made it the fastest-selling platform exclusive at the time. Last time Nintendo updated us at the end of Q1 2014 it had sold over 28 million copies worldwide, making it the fourth best-selling Wii game of all time.
New Super Mario Bros. U, its direct successor, had sold over 4 million units at last check in.
