Obviously, the biggest thing coming out of Nintendo’s E3 Direct, and arguably the biggest thing coming out of E3 in general, was Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The newest and latest installment in the Super Smash Bros. franchise scheduled to release exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on December 7th. Every single fighter in the history of the Smash Bros. franchise is all here and accounted for, plus newcomers - the Inklings, Ridley, Simon Belmont, King K. Rool, Isabelle, Incineroar, and... Piranha Plant. Furthermore, Echo fighters have been introduced with the first wave being Dark Samus, Daisy, Lucina, Chrom, Ken, and Richter Belmont. And there is supposed to be new fighers, stages, and music tracks coming in the form of DLC in the future.

So with all we know so far and obviously more info to come the closer we get to the game’s release, how much do you expect Smash Bros. Ultimate to sell?

It depends.

If it's a port? 18 million.

If it's a new game? 18 million.


Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

I'm thinking 15-16M LT.

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

I'm going with 18m too. No way it will sell much less than Zelda Breath of the Wild.

Wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo says it shipped 10m in December alone.

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

Around 15-17 million probably

I think we're looking at 15 million.

It will sell really well. I expect over 12 million. It may beat the best selling Smash game on the Wii (12,91 million).

18 million? That's way more than Brawl on the Wii! I see it clearly beating Smash 4, but beating the Wii-version? I don't know.
