Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is smashing its way up the sales charts
It took a little while, but Nintendo overnight has done a bit of gloating about how well Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has done. Both Nintendo of America and Nintendo Europe had some good news to share, first up the Americans.
Nintendo of America has announced that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has managed to sell 3 million copies in just 11 days. It’s made it both the fastest-selling Switch and Smash Bros. game as well. There is also now 8.7 million Switch consoles sold in America, that makes it the fastest selling ‘current generation’ console. (to this point in its life).
They also shared the following fun facts (which apply to the US only);
- Nintendo hardware unit and dollar sales for 2018 are at their highest annual totals since 2011.
- Nintendo eShop sales have grown 105 percent over 2017.
- Evergreen Nintendo Switch games have set new milestones, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe selling over 4 million and 5 million units, respectively. Super Mario Odyssey has sold over 4.7 million units.
- In addition to the fast-selling Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game, other recently released games that continue to make a splash include Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, which together total 2 million units, and Super Mario Party at 1.4 million.
