Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Famitsu Preliminary Report: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate opens at 1.3m in Japan

I'm even more curious to see if these numbers include bundles or not. Otherwise, we're probably looking at a ~1.5m FW at retail for Smash.

15m shipped first month is definitely starting to look like a possibility. Will this make it the fastest selling exclusive of all time?

How many exclusives even hit 15mil? Lol. Pokemon SuMo got the record. (14.6mil)

Actually, how many games hit 15m? Not a very long list.  

But in all seriousness, did Sun/Moon do 14.6m first month? O.o

I'm amazed at how many Nintendo franchises have a realistic shot at reaching 20m this gen, this is something totally new. 



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

With some ketchup should be fine, thanks!

Is this the highest opening for a game in Japan this gen? What's the last game to do higher? Pokémon?

VGC numbers:

Pokémon X&Y: 1,94M
Pokémon S&M: 1,85M
Monster Hunter 4: 1,77M
Monster Hunter World: 1,36M (PS4)
Yokai Watch 2: 1,31M
Dragon Quest XI: 1,14M (3DS), 0,94M (PS4)



1,3m in 3 days in Japan alone. Wendesdays numbers could be like 1.5m, thats nuts
