SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR NINTENDO 3DS HAS SOLD MORE THAN 2.8 MILLION UNITS WORLDWIDE

Season of Smash continues on 5th December with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and two waves of amiibo on 28th November and 19th December

7th October 2014 – Strong launches in Europe, the Americas and Australia* have propelled the cumulative sales total for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS to more than 2.8 million worldwide. This first-ever portable instalment of the game has resonated with fans and critics alike, and its initial sales set Nintendo up for a strong Christmas season.

The “Season of Smash” is set for another boost as Nintendo today lifts the lid on the European release date for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with the fighting series’ first foray into HD landing in European shops on 5th December. The first wave of Nintendo’s interactive amiibo figures will launch a week earlier, on 28th November. Twelve iconic Nintendo characters will be included in the first round, with six more figures set to launch with the second wave on 19th December.

Last week, Amazon Germany listed Super Mario World, Super Mario question block, and 1UP mushroom Amiibo cases. Images have since surfaced for the latter two products, which you can find below.

We also have a tiny bit of news regarding the publisher of the Amiibo cases. Amazon Germany originally listed Gioteck as the manufacturer, but it now appears that PowerA is actually making the various products.

Three different Amiibo cases have been listed on Amazon Germany. Consumers will be able to purchase cases for Super Mario World, the Super Mario question block, and 1UP mushroom. Gioteck, a maker of accessories, appears to be behind these products.

Thanks to Onur Keskin for the tip.

Nintendo put up listings for the various Amiibo figures on its online store today. What’s particularly interesting is that each page includes a “November” release date.

As many of you know, Nintendo has said that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will release alongside Amiibo. Might this mean that the game will launch in November?

Earlier this week the pricing model emerged for Amiibo distribution in the US, but other regions were yet to follow. Nintendo  confirmed today the Amiibo prices for the UK and Australian markets, with each figure coming in at  £10.99 in Europe and $17.95 in Australia.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime spoke about a few different topics in a recent interview.

First, regarding the initial wave of Amiibo figures, he stated:

“We wanted to make sure that the breadth of characters we had for the initial ‘amiibo’ line-up supported the fan favorites, as well as showcase the variety of people Nintendo speaks to — from kids to adults. For example, you’ve got a character like Marth from the ‘Fire Emblem’ series. We thought exposing Marth to a wider collection of consumers through ‘amiibo’ made a ton of sense, but, of course, we had to have Mario, Princess Peach and Donkey Kong in that initial line-up, as well.”

Update 2: One last bump. Best Buy pre-orders are now open here.


Update: GameStop pre-orders here.


Pre-orders for the Amiibo figures are now starting to go live. All of the characters can be reserved on Amazon right here.. We’ll update this post when other retailers open pre-orders.
