Much like in North America and Europe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also making history in Australia. It’s been announced that the new Switch title is the fastest-selling Nintendo console game in Australian history. The game is also the fastest-selling eShop release.
Five out of the ten best-selling Nintendo home console releases have been on Switch, including Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu / Eevee, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Smash sold 80% better than Super Mario Odyssey at launch while also beating the sales of Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8.
Managing director of Nintendo Australia, Kamon Yoshimura, said in a statement:
“We are thrilled that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now both the fastest-selling game in the series and our fastest-selling home console game in Australia and New Zealand.”
