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

From its launch in March 2017 through November 2018, Nintendo Switch has sold more than 8.7 million units, outpacing US sales of all other current-generation systems at the same point in their life cycles.

With upwards of 74 fighters, 108 stages, almost 1300 Spirit characters to collect, and a single-player Adventure mode that ought to take around 24 hours to complete, Super Smash Bros.

In the US, Nintendo has sold more than 4.7 million copies of Odyssey and over five million and four million units, respectively, for Mario Kart and Zelda.

We are thrilled to see such a strong reaction from consumers in the second holiday season for Nintendo Switch. Based on the current pace of Switch sales, it seems unlikely Nintendo will surpass Sony on worldwide hardware sales in the first two years.

Batting blips: In the second innings, we couldn't apply ourselves as much as we should have. "I think it was a good exchange". After Kohli's "I am the best player in the world" jibe at Paine, the Australian captain responded saying, "Yeah, I'm no good".

Nintendo noted that its hardware unit and dollar sales have hit their highest point since 2011. Ultimate in the U.S. in its first 11 days on the market according to the company's own internal sales data. The Japanese gaming company has sold 8.7 million units of the Switch in just 21 months in stores, despite the machine being very limited when it was first released. Ultimate is the biggest Super Smash Bros. ever, and we look forward to bringing exciting experiences to players in 2019 with new games in the Animal Crossing and Pokémon series, alongside Yoshi's Crafted World, Fire Emblem: "Three Houses, and more".

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.

Nintendo eShop sales have grown 105 percent over 2017. 2018 titles such as Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!, and Super Mario Party have helped bolster sales.
