by Daniel VuckovicDecember 20, 2018

Nintendo Australia has just announced that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now the fastest-selling Nintendo home console game in Australia and New Zealand – ever.

Total Australian and New Zealand sales over the first three days were almost 80% higher than that of Super Mario Odyssey. In addition, Smash Bros. Ultimate is the fastest selling eShop game ever. Nintendo Australia’s figures come from internal data and include eShop sales.

“We are thrilled that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now both the fastest-selling game in the series and our fastest-selling home console game in Australia and New Zealand,” said Managing Director of Nintendo Australia, Kamon Yoshimura.“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the biggest Super Smash Bros. ever, and we look forward to bringing exciting experiences to players in 2019 with new games in the Animal Crossing and Pokémon series, alongside Yoshi’s Crafted World, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and more.”

Nintendo says that “five of Nintendo’s ten best-ever Australian and New Zealand home console software launches are now on Nintendo Switch”.

That list includes The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee and now Smash Bros. Ultimate.

That worldwide Ultimate total must be looking pretty impressive right about now.

    All this and they sent ONE shipment of GameCube controller adapters.

    Now they’re sold out everywhere and it could be months before they’re in stock again.
