With only a weekend on the market, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has sold 490,000 copies in the US alone. This makes it the fastest-selling game on the platform in the country. Nintendo’s crossover fighter has dethroned Mario Kart 8, which held this title after its release back in May.
“The Nintendo holiday is off to a great start, but there’s a lot of work left to do and a few more surprises in store for our fans,” said Nintendo’s Scott Moffitt. “With great deals coming on Black Friday and Cyber Mondayand great content like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker launching next week, Nintendo will offer shoppers the best combination of fun and value this holiday season.”
