Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NPD Prediction: Will Smash Ultimate become the fastest selling Nintendo Title?

Will Smash Ultimate surpass Brawl's first month sales?

Yes 23 69.70%
 
No 10 30.30%
 
It won't be close 0 0.00%
 
Total:33

Simple question, can Smash Ultimate become the fastest selling Nintendo Title on the NPD? Based off of what I found, in a period of one month, the record is 2.7 million with Super Smash Bros Brawl. Does Ultimate have the hype to surpass this astonishing record?

I voted no. Also, according to VGC, Pokemon X+Y sold 4.2m in one month. I don't think Smash can beat that.

Mario Odyssey sold 2.1M on it's launch with the Switch still having half of the units as of now,I can't see why Smash Ultimate wouldn't easily beat that, so I will say yes.



Absolutely, I mean, I'm already expecting day one sales to be borderline on the 2M mark (digital included) so knowing it'll launch at the beginning of December makes it a given for SSBU to win over Brawl.

I thought Pokemon Sun and Moon was the fastes selling Nintendo title on NPD, and then Mario Odyssey beat it?

Sun/Moon had the most pre-orders globally but I'm pretty sure Smash still has the debut NPD record for Nintendo.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

My fault too.  I didn't realize that Brawl sold 2.7m NPD in just one month.  That is pretty impressive! 

Although the first four weeks on VGC come to like 2.3m.  If you are counting 5 weeks, then I think it was outsold by New Super Mario Wii.

Odyssey came out near the end of the NPD, so it didn't break the fastest selling record. However it is the fastest selling Super Mario Title

That's a weird case, as it actually sold more in its second month compared to its first (1.3 million compared to 2.8 million).
