Looking at various sales reports from different regions over the last month, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is enjoying a number of top spots following its December launch. And globally, those numbers add up.
As shared by Kantan Games CEO Dr. Serkan Toto on Twitter, Japanese daily newspaper Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun ran a brief interview with Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa today in which Furukawa revealed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sold over five million copies globally in its first week.
That figure should come as no surprise after the game landed as the fastest-selling Smash Bros. game in the UK, topped the EMEAA region charts in its debut week, sold three million copies in the US alone in the first eleven days, and sold 1.24 million copies in three days in Japan alone.
Later in the interview, Furukawa also mentioned that Nintendo Switch software sales are unprecedented for Nintendo - apparently the fastest so far in Nintendo's history for a home console.
