The Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console in America, and now ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ is the fastest-selling game for the Nintendo Switch. ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ sold a whopping 3 million copies in America alone, and in just 11 days. According to Nintendo, ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ is also the fastest-selling game in Europe via the Nintendo eShop.
First week worldwide sales topped 5 million copies sold. The longstanding fighting game series has been both critically and commercially successful all throughout its near 20 year run, and ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ is looking to be the best-selling game in the series.
With Christmas right around the corner, and the hype around ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ continuing to climb, it will be interesting to see how many more copies are sold this holiday season and what the sales figures will look like as we head into 2019. With 5 exciting DLC characters on the way in 2019, ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ will likely dominate the fighting game scene for the foreseeable future (which, considering how frequently new games come out, is maybe a couple of months).
