Congratulations to the Smash team! But now I'm curious, what's the actually fastest selling Nintendo game in Europe? A Pokemon game?

We don't have numbers from Pokémon Let's Go yet. It's the only Pokémon game on a home console. I think SSBU has to beat Mario Kart Wii's sales which are 493'389 first week in Europe according to VGC numbers.

Super Mario Odyssey sold 567k units first week in Europe, but I think that Pokémon LGPE sold more, like 650k/700k. That would brings Smash to sold around 850k units first week

Spanish SSBU launch week:

1 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Switch 61.000 Nuevo

4 FIFA 19 PS4 12.000 (434.000)
5 Yo-Kai Watch 3 3DS 6000 Nuevo

All it said was "Best selling home console title in EU" not "Best selling console title in EU by X amount from the previous record holder"

We can only determine the floor but it's top is a total mystery until the next financial quarter meeting

Awesome! And so deserved, certainly the best Smash Bros game yet. Guess that 25 million prediction isn't quite as insane anymore.

So switch is a home console then. Also, awesome numbers for a game which definitely deserved it.

It's designation seems to be dependent on the agenda of whomever is making a statement.  

Of course, if Nintendo were smart, they'd declare that it breaks the "hybrid console" records constantly.

You can't break a record if there's no record that begin with it.

Yeah, and those records are being set by the Switch, so it can break its own records?
