  • Top 10 Game Charts: Super Smash Bros. pummels the competition

According to Nintendo, Smash Bros Ultimate is now the fastest-selling Switch game ever, with 3 million units sold in 11 days on the market.

If you're not picking one up for yourself, these would also make a really fantastic gift for anyone in your life that loves Nintendo stuff, Smash, or really anyone who owns a Switch.

Further to this, Nintendo has announced that five out of the ten best selling Nintendo home console releases have released on Nintendo Switch. By comparison, the PlayStation 4 sold 30 million units in the 24 months after its launch, according to Sony. While Nintendo doesn't provide the numbers explicitly, it does point out that Odyssey has sold more than 12 million units, so if we apply some quick maths, we're looking at upwards of 21 million copies, which is absolutely huge, particularly given it only came out a little under two weeks ago.

According to Bloomberg, Nintendo plans to sell 38 million Switch consoles by the end of the financial year, although it is predicted they will most likely only sell 35 million.

While there are more Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox consoles now on the market, the Switch has outpaced "all other current-generation systems" since its debut in March 2017, NPD reported. Super Mario Odyssey has sold over 4.7 million units.


Evergreen Nintendo Switch games have set new milestones, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe selling over 4 million and 5 million units, respectively. The game also sold 3 million units in just 11 days in the United States, according to gamesindustry.biz.

Nintendo said that its hardware unit and dollar sales for 2018 are at their highest annual totals since 2011 - the heady days of its Wii success - and that eShop sales grew 105 percent over 2017.

Nintendo isn't quite at the top of the current-gen hardware pile yet (Sony's head start has allowed them to reach almost 90 million PS4s sold, close to the Wii's lifetime of 101.6 million), but they're getting there quickly.

Sales of the Switch aren't the only thing Nintendo is celebrating.
