Super Smash Bros. For Wii U Sells Over 490,000 Copies

Nintendo of America announced that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has sold over 490,000 copies in the U.S. alone, making Super Smash Bros. for Wii U the fastest-selling Wii U game for the country. Get this, it only took three days.

It should be noted that the sales number is made up of bothphysical and digital sales. Mario Kart 8 sold 1.2 million units in its first three days worldwide. However, because Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be coming out in Europe on November 28th and in Japan on December 6th, we won’t know whether Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will beat Mario Kart 8 sales-wise worldwide.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is a fighting game that features numerous Nintendo characters. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was released earlier this year and sold over one million copies in its first three days in Japan.

My Opinion:

I think this is great news for Nintendo. They still haven’t met their financial goals for the year and they need a win with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. I’ve heard it’s an excellent game and I can’t wait to play it this Friday.
