UK Charts: Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fastest-Selling Nintendo Switch Game

It is Monday so it is time to see how the video game software releases have performed in the United Kingdom. It has been a big week for Nintendo as the long-awaited Super Smash Bros Ultimate has been released on the Nintendo Switch system. Games Industry is reporting that it is the fastest selling Nintendo Switch game so far and also the best-selling Super Smash Bros game ever. 

It is the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game released so far, eclipsing the combined launch sales of Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee. The game’s launch sales are 302 per cent higher than the numbers achieved by Super Smash Bros for Wii U and they’re 233 per cent higher than Super Smash Bros for 3DS. Launch sales are also 62.5 per cent higher than the Wii game Super Smash Bros Brawl. All of which means Ultimate is the fastest-selling Smash Bros game in the franchise’s UK history.

 It’s worth noting that the sales only include physical numbers, so digital downloads of Ultimate have not been counted. There was a Switch hardware promotion this week featuring Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, which boosted sales of that game 45 per cent week-on-week. The title rose four places to No.5.

Over Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the launch of Smash Bros, around 200,000 Switch consoles have been sold in the UK – retailers have told us.
