Yesterday we reported that Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee set a new record for Switch with over 3 million copies sold in three days. That’s a pretty impressive feat, but it might be a short-lived victory. Nintendo just released a new trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and in addition to featuring praise from critics, it revealed some interesting pre-order data.
Nintendo had previously reported that both
Pokémon and Smash were among the most pre-ordered Switch games ever, and today they confirmed that Smash has officially passed up Pokémon as number one. On top of that, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also the most pre-ordered game in the history of the fighting franchise itself. With an early lead, will Ultimate oust Pokémon for the title of fastest-selling Switch game? We’ll find out in a few weeks!
Super #SmashBrosUltimate is punching its way into the record books! Thank you to all the amazing fans for your support in making this a fight for the ages! Be sure to have your #NintendoSwitch ready to experience the action when the game launches on 12/7.https://t.co/z26JLSHE3W pic.twitter.com/AqkeDlKYSb
