Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the best-selling Nintendo game of all time
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also on track to become the best-selling entry in the series.
Nintendo has released sales figures for first-party games and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate turns out to be a knockout blow for the editor.
As of December 31, 2018, the title has sold 12.08 million units, making it the third best-selling game on Switch, behind Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launched on December 7, meaning it moved all of those copies in less than a month, making it the best-selling nintendo home console game of all time.
The previous record holder was New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which sold over 10 million units in eight weeks worldwide (via Kotaku).
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the best-selling game on Amazon last year and the best-selling Nintendo game in Europe just a week and a half after its launch.
