Smash Bros. Ultimate has sold over 3M copies in the U.S.

And that was before the release of Super Smash Bros. Nintendo UK also shares that Smash Ultimate is the "fastest-selling Nintendo home console game of all time in Europe".

Nintendo today revealed the Switch has now sold over 8.7 million units at the 21-month mark in the United States, more than both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One did when they were the same "age".

Nintendo sold more than three million copies of its popular brawler "Super Smash Bros".

Update: Nintendo of Europe has also just announced that Super Smash Bros.

But that doesn't seem to have stopped sales, with The NPD Group reporting that, in the United States, the Switch has been the fastest-selling console this generation over the last 21 months. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, and Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! now all have their (rightfully deserved) places on the list.

It's been another huge year for Nintendo and it looks like there's absolutely no plans to slow down in 2019. Includes solus and bundle units sold at retail, and download versions in Nintendo eShop.

Those hardware sales, however, don't account for the launch of Ultimate, which Nintendo claims will give the Switch extra impetus as the holidays continue.


Nintendo eShop sales have grown 105 percent over 2017.

"The game has sold over 3 million copies in 11 days, based on Nintendo's own numbers", the company addressed in a statement.

Nintendo noted that its hardware unit and dollar sales have hit their highest point since 2011.

The outlet also reports that Super Smash Bros.

Total Australian and New Zealand sales over the first three days were nearly 80% higher than that of Super Mario Odyssey.

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