This is the fastest selling Switch game and the fastest selling Super Smash Bros. game throughout the history of the franchise.

If you're not picking one up for yourself, these would also make a really fantastic gift for anyone in your life that loves Nintendo stuff, Smash, or really anyone who owns a Switch.

Nothing's more popular right now than Super Smash Bros.

In an announcement made on Tuesday, Nintendo also said the Switch is the fastest selling console of the current generation. Nintendo said it would sell 38 million Nintendo Switch by the end of the financial year, though analysts are still predicting it will fall just short, hitting about 35 million, according to Bloomberg. "We're looking forward to delivering more excitement and smiles to our fans in the coming year and beyond". Nintendo Australia's figures come from internal data and include eShop sales.

With 74 playable fighters, over 100 stages, more than 800 music tracks and much more, Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo's eShop sales have also seen a huge bump this year. Total European sales over the game's first three days were nearly 30% higher than Mario Kart Wii, which went on to ship more than 37 million copies worldwide. From its launch in March 2017 through November 2018, Nintendo Switch has sold more than 8.7 million units, outpacing US sales of all other current-generation systems at the same point in their life cycles.

In addition to the fast-selling Super Smash Bros.

Since the Switch launched three years later than its two rivals it'll never catch up, and so direct comparisons between overall sales are essentially meaningless.

Total Australian and New Zealand sales over the first three days were nearly 80% higher than that of Super Mario Odyssey.
