Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has sold through 93.45 percent of its shipment in Japan. Since its debut in the region on September 13th, the hand-held version of the fighting title shifted about 944,644 copies at retail. By comparison, the Wii console’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl sold approximately 819,647 copes at launch and experienced a sell-through of 94.37% of its shipment. It was recently revealed that Super Smash Bros for 3DS surpassed the one million sales mark during its first couple days on sale in Japan.
Smash-tember continues in the latest Nintendo Minute episode, which focuses on the original Super Smash Bros. Hosts Kit and Krysta are joined by JC Rodrigo from the Nintendo of America Treehouse and Twitch user Scar as they duke it out and engage in team matches in the Nintendo 64 classic. Released in 1999, the first entry in the renowned fighting game series includes 12 playable characters and nine multiplayer stages. It is also available on the Virtual Console service for Wii.
Unseen64 have uncovered the existence of Super Mario Spikers which was under development for a very short period of time by the acclaimed Next Level Games. The site says it was a cancelled volleyball/wrestling hybrid game that was in the conceptualisation phase, but never made it past that.
‘It was a wrestling/volleyball hybrid with a game show slant. It was never released and was financed as more of a reward to Next Level for doing such a great job on MSC’
Twitter user Oscar Lemaire has put together a graph showing how well the Smash Bros series has done on the formats it’s been released on in Japan via Famitsu numbers. As you can see, the launch week for Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS was the biggest ever for the franchise. No doubt the Nintendo 3DS version will remain the best-selling until we get a new entry in the future.
