Wii Sports Resort Sword Fighting sold double.

Why would you say something so controversial, yet so brave.

Wow! Well done!



Well deserved.
Smash bros has been the best fighting series for a while now. Only fitting that one of its games is the best selling fighter.
This will absolutely crush the record by such a margin that it is hard to see any future games passing it, outside of maybe another smash bros game.

Smash is trash though.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It's even more impressive when you consider how many consoles and years that SF II was released on.

I'm somewhat sad to see it happen though. SF II is my favorite fighting game of all time. I used to hold SF II tournaments (in the days long before eSports were a thing). But this is definitely worthy sales title successor.

Not to mention how many different releases SFII had (SCE, Turbo, Super launching simultaneously on SNES and Genesis, Super Turbo on 3DO)

And Smash is an evergreen title that will keep selling for years to come.

True, and I especially dislike Ultimate for taking up so much time in Nintendo's presentations (watch their reveal at the VGAs this year be another fucking Smash fighter instead of something actually worthy like Bayonetta 3 or BOTW2 gameplay) but still, sales are sales.

I know people don't like Smash, but this is the biggest crossover in video game history, maybe in all of entertainment. I don't think anyone can blame Nintendo for constantly showing it off. A franchise that started out as a simple brawler of a handful Nintendo characters then becoming the biggest video game crossover of all time. And to add to that the biggest fighting game series ever, beating Tekken, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and more.
