There’s nothing quite like a new Super Smash Bros. game to excite the Nintendo fan base. The crossover fighting game has long been a huge hit, and the latest iteration is the biggest yet with a roster of over 70 fighters that includes every past playable character. We already knew Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was off to a fast start based on early reports, but Nintendo’s latest update is just jaw-dropping.
According to Nintendo’s third quarter earnings release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had sold an incredible 12.08 million copies as of December 31st. That’s not too shabby for a game that launched on December 7th. Currently, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the top-selling game in the franchise with 13.29 million sales, but Ultimate will certainly unseat it in a matter of weeks, if not days. The sky is the limit!
