Not a bad hold for Switch and Smash Bros had an expected drop. But damn what a run it had in December. Smash Bros. Ultimate is already in the Splatoon and Monster Hunter World tier for this generation in Japan. It really vindicates Nintendo for promoting Ultimate as their big title of the year despite some naysayers.

"It's a port of the Wii U game!"
"There're too many Smash Directs!"
"Smash Bros. isn't a system seller like Mario or Zelda or Pokemon"
"Why is Nintendo relying on Smash (and Pokemon Let's Go) to carry them through the holidays?"

Well there's your answer.

People actually said Smash isn't a system seller?

In other news, the sky is rainbow and up is not up. :P



big drop for PKLG too... i dont think it can get 2M at retail but well... smash got good numbers after crazy weeks if it stays around 20 - 30k for some months could be great. For NSMBU I was expecting around 150 - 200k so I also think it will do similar life time sales as the original game (5 - 6 M)

It had the same percentage as all of the other evergreens 



NSMB U Switch numbers opened higher than the Wii U version did, im kinda shocked tbh. I expected it to be lower

PS4 went from its best Week 1 to its worst Week 2. Yikes! I wonder by how much it will decline this year from last.
