This performance should receive an additional boost from the December release of the Super Smash Bros. This is the fastest selling Switch game and the fastest selling Super Smash Bros. game throughout the history of the franchise.

According to a press release from the company, Smash Ultimate has hit launch sales which are more than 80 per cent higher than Super Mario Odyssey. "We're looking forward to delivering more excitement and smiles to our fans in the coming year and beyond". Ultimate became the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game at United Kingdom retail.

In addition to the fast-selling Super Smash Bros.

In the US, Nintendo has sold more than 4.7 million copies of Odyssey and over five million and four million units, respectively, for Mario Kart and Zelda. So many games were released past year that Nintendo had very little left for afterwards and it wasn't really until Pokémon: Let's Go and Super Smash Bros.

It's been another huge year for Nintendo and it looks like there's absolutely no plans to slow down in 2019. In its first 21 months of availability, Nintendo has sold more than 8.7 million systems in the U.S., outpacing all other current-gen systems through the same point in their life cycles.

Nintendo eShop sales have grown 105 percent over 2017.

The NPD Group on Tuesday also revealed that the Switch has become the fastest-selling console of this hardware generation.

"The game has sold over 3 million copies in 11 days, based on Nintendo's own numbers", the company addressed in a statement. Ultimate for Switch, so it's the flawless time for PDP to launch a line of wired fight pads styled after some of Nintendo's most recognizable characters.

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.
