Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Smash Bros ultimate first week sales

Recently Spiderman PS4 broke records for the console by selling 3.3mil in it's first 3 days. Considering 1.2mil only in Japan, it's safe to say Smash ultimate broke that easily. So my question is how many do your think it sold and also, bevbeca I don't know, can anyone tell me the record for an exckusexc selling the most in it's first week on any console. And can smash beat that in you opinion?

Kinda hard to tell honestly, but my prediction would be 5m (Japan: 1.2m / US: 2.6m / Europe + RotW: 1.2m). Including digital and bundles, it could be 6m.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

4.1 Million. I can't predict how well it will sell in Europe, so this number might even be underestimating.

In France the Switch install base is pretty good, and the advertisements are everywhere, so at least I think the numbers will be quite high here. Can't speak for the rest of Europe though.

At least we know in UK that it's the fastest selling Smash Bros title, like 62% higher sales than Brawl.

I read somewhere it shipped about 500k to France. If that's the case, sales will at least be around 1m FW in Europe.

Can anyone tell me what the highest first week sales of an exclusive were?

Why we still dont have any PR news? Lets Go got one less than a week since it released.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

It's odd they haven't said anything. I'm sure there is a reason.
